It has been awhile since I did a Boilermakings, but that is mostly because football and basketball have occupied my time. I do want to announce that Hammer & Rails rated 17th out of over 90 SB Nation college sites in terms of traffic for the month of November with over 394,000 page views. We probably would have beaten the record of 407,000 set in March, but very few people came on Thanksgiving or the day after.
OMHR's propaganda rag had over 500,000, so we have a ways to go before we catch Pravda.
In the meantime, here are some links to discuss:
