                    GoshenGipper? I wasn't around when he helped to lift the site to where it is. I know he passed away years ago, but anyway, he popped into my head. RIP.

                                                  I went with BGIF, but with all due respect, that was before I saw Goshen. He should be awarded it posthumously

                                                        Speaking of voting and all things official, OMM-- can you tell us what it was like to vote when you had to own property to do so? Or even better, what it was like when people had to travel to places such as Bethlehem to be counted for the census??



                                                        Merry Christmas, OMM!

                                                          BGIF has been and always will be one of the best, if not THE BEST, poster's on this site. I've gotten into it a few times with the guy this past season but purely because of differing opinions.

                                                          All respect BGIF, congrats!!!

                                                            I do not what to underestimate all of the great posters on the list and their contributions to this site are immense. But I do feel the need to speak on the behalf of GoshenGipper.

                                                            From looking at the join dates of most of the people that have posted, it appears that GG was killed before most of you joined. While many people have contributed to IE, GG may have literally saved IE from the trash dump and we are all indebted to him. While we are enjoying the fruit of many posters efforts, I think nobody deserves this award more then GG.

                                                            Here are a couple of quotes from J Pham and BGIF

                                                            J Pham said in the GoshenGipper has left us thread
                                                            Link
                                                            Jimmy was also one of the mods that stuck around after the site shake-up and helped rebuild this community out of his love for Notre Dame football. He spent countless hours restoring profiles, adding in recruiting tidbits, and cleaning up the site. IrishEnvy would not be what it is nor where it is today without his efforts.

                                                            GG, you will be missed my friend. RIP.
                                                            BGIF said this in the History of IE thread
                                                            Link

                                                            Svo put this board up for sale and it was bought by a Canadian entrepenuer purely as an investment opportunity. Svo was to provide administrative assistance for some time period as part of the sale which he did but not under his own name. He used a clever nom de plume. Offically he left because of unspecified job or family demands on time. No details were provided. As people learned of the new absentee landlord with no interest in ND except making a buck off the site. Readership waned. A volunteer administrater Tiger something or other, turned out to be an MSU fan. He wasn't a troll but that didn't help. Then some mods and members took it upon themselves to trash the site "to get even with that Canadian guy". It wasn't prettty.
                                                            An underground pirate site was set up and many key IE member and mods migrated there. This place became a sewer. It got pretty ugly.
                                                            Enter GoshenGipper, an ND Subway Alum, who lead the charge to rebuild the site. He was tireless as a poster, mediator, moderator, and cheerleader. He died about 2 years ago in a automobile accident.
                                                            GG was truly beloved and worked tirelessly for this site and helped save it because of his love for ND.

                                                              ^^^^ Great post!!!

                                                              You cannot go wrong voting for BGIF or Goshen Gipper. BGIF is literally a fountain of college football knowledge. I can't tell you how much I've learned from reading his posts. And he's a good guy too. Most definitely deserving of this award.

                                                              Goshen was a stud. I never got to speak with him, but one summer I took the time to read through his posts, and his parents' heartfelt thread explaining that he had passed away and how much he loved this place. That guy was as genuine as they come. Goshen was saintly in the way he dealt with people, and his positivity permeated this site. Wish I got the chance to meet him!

                                                              Should be a split vote!

                                                                    Regarding getting to vote and owning property. This never comes up in West Virginia, as we are a national park and we basically just set up our tents where we feel like it.

                                                                    We DO have to go to Bethlehem to register though.

                                                                    Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

Or could you PM me a information on him? Sounds like the "newer" posters on here have missed the opportunity to know Goshen. If there is a lot of info from the older posters maybe a new thread? just a thought.
