    The one rule we have for the War Room is simply that everything that is reported here should stay here and on The Peristyle. Sometimes the info is sensitive enough that it simply does not need to be passed on beyond the doors of this thread.

    Please honor this request and we will continue to do our best to provide all of our subscribers with a great perspective on the program.

    This is a special feature for subscribers only written by the staff and analysts. The reason why it is posted on the premium board is that it is the only way to ensure that the info stays exclusive to the Trojan fans.

    This will only work if everyone helps make it work by not copying or reprinting the information.
