When the pregame clock at the stadium runs down to 4:44, lots of 4. are put up on the scoreboard. Is there a reason for this? Seem like if they were testing the scoreboard they'd put up 8s and would do that well before under 5 minutes to kickoff.
I recognize this is not exactly riveting, but at least it is somewhat a diversion from my opinion on what should happen is better than yours.
Version 1.1 of the MGoBlog app is now in the app store.
It adds/fixes a few things that have been bugging me, and probably others:
1. You can now have comments listed "Oldest First". The option is available under the login menu (shown below).
2. You can now reload the board listing without going to the previous menu and coming back in. Pull down and press "reload". Image below:
3. There's now an email link in the "About" screen to my email address. Use this instead of bugging Brian.
4. Following links within a post/comment will now open a resizable browser window that works like you expect it to work. Backing out of that window will also take you back to the post, instead of all the way back to the board list.
5. App will now detect all links within a post/comment, even if they're not actual html links.
6. Board listing will now reload after waking from the "background" state in phones that support multitasking.
Let me know if you have any issues or requests.

I have tried to read up on tailgating rules in Happy Valley, and am trying to be a good guest by following them. All the while trying to prove my family wrong with the thought that me and my friends will get arrested sometime during our visit. We are taking a RV and getting there friday night and I've been told they are a bit more lienent with the RV folks. We are also bringing a keg as it would be a cheaper and easier way to keep beer around. But I am still left with a few questions that I cannot find the answers to online...
1. Do they allow propane fire pits?
2. Do they allow kegs if you are in the RV area?
If you have any extra advice you can fill me in with it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
I have to admit to being a GERG fan after he coached my youngest son at the M Football Camp a couple summers ago (sentimental fool that I am). He was terrific to Evan and all the other kids.
Nonetheless, I have been perplexed by M linebacker play -- tentative, out of position, overrunning, but most of all, caught in the wash. Watching M LBs, they seem to initiate play from 3 or fewer yards behind the LOS. Watching other teams (and M teams past), you see them most often position themselves 4-5 yards back on anything other than 3rd and long. The difference is, what, 30-60% more distance? More decision time, more distance to get downhill momentum, more opportunity for angles to the ball, more distance and space for an OL (slower and less agile) to cover, and, importantly, a lot less wash.
Being over half a hundred years old, my own high school experience is probably less than relevant, but I do have vivid memories of my coach yelling, "Move back, dumbass!" more than a few times after I buggered up a play for any of the reasons mentioned above.
Any opinions from the more learned amongst us?
