chance of bowl: 13.6%
I have been getting a lot of Adware recently when visiting the blog. I have switched between Firefox, Chrome and IE to see if it was one browser or another. I haven't noticed it with most other pages I go to, but I do get a lot of pop up ads (not the standard sidebar/banner ads) when clicking on some of the diary and board posts here.
To be clear, I'm not savvy enough to know how and where this stuff comes from, but I am just wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same issues.
I've been struggling to get rid of the culprit(s) as well, so any legit recommendations are certainly appreciated and welcomed.
EDIT: I do actively run virus protection (MS Essentials) and Malware protection (Malwarebytes Premium).
1. He needs to get one of Jim Harbaugh, John Harbaugh, Les Miles, or Dan Mullen by any means necessary even if it means paying them 8 million dollars a year.
2. He needs to reduce student football pricing. A 12,000 person student section is way too small at a place like Michigan. Students don't tend to have a lot of money so it needs to be cheap for them to attend. As for the rest of the stadium, I would like for prices to be reduced as well but if we must have high prices to bring in a big name coach then so be it.
3. He needs to get rid of the endowment of the AD, head football coach, and offensive cordinator. It's embarrassing to do this at Michigan.
4. He needs to get rid of the advertising around the concourse of Michigan Stadium.
5. He needs to get rid of alternate uniforms for Michigan. You could possibly do one every 2-3 years but it's spitting on the face of our actual uniforms to replace them for our biggest games every year.
6. He needs to cut back on the piped in music. No one comes to the games to hear Special K and it is hurting the marching band.
7. He needs to continue to pay attention to nonrevenue sports and upgrade their facilities. This is the one thing I agree with Brandon on.
I thought that this little "story" on Mental Floss (one of the greatest websites there is, by the way) might be of some interest to at least a good portion of folks here. I'm not from Michigan, nor do I live there, but I find myself there often enough in the fall.
Anyway...enjoy this distraction from the playing field for a few seconds.
To Brian and the staff/moderators of MGoBlog... Can you PLEASE, pretty please pin one generic coaching candidate (CC:) thread to the top of the MGoBoard? When it reaches 1,000 replies, maybe you unpin and start a fresh new 2.0, 3.0, and so on? Anything to consolidate all of these threads.
Also, can we do the same for anything Hoke/Brandon/Morris/Concussion-gate related? These are starting to die down...but it's still the same mob/petition/protest folks who aren't going to ease up. Which is fine - they shouldn't. I just know many of us would appreciate if these were consolidated as well. Especially when we know more will pop up after the pressers this week.
MGoBlog is special to many of us and we enjoy discussion about all of Michigan athletics or even more than just the same 2-3 Michigan football topics. At the same time, there are some very good thoughts/threads, so I hope they don't go away entirely. Thank you for your consideration.
There is something both tragic and comical about Dave Brandon's immense douchiness. I therefore conclude that
we need a Dave Brandon photoshop thread.
Could someone please hook it up? I really need this. Badly. Something to dull the pain.
