maybe i should have had greg howard write the brandon obit.
Rejoice, MGoBloggers. The Name of the Year 2015 bracket is out!
I am proud to say that two of my nominees made it into this year's field: Mussolini Africano and Charity Sunshine Tilleman-Dick. While I have no way of knowing whether it was my nomination that got them in, I'm going to pretend it was because doing so makes me happy. I love NOTY very much, and 2015 has got a really deep field.
Early favorites include Manmeet Colon, Flavious Coffee, Understanding Bush, Reverend Pierrebatista Pizzaballa, and Infinite Grover. But you've got to let these things marinate, I'm sure that when it's all said and done my favorite name will have shifted.
I apologize for the super OT content, but as this is the single most popular program on Earth, I figured it was worth a post. Jeremy Clarkson will be fired by the BBC tomorrow morning, brining Top Gear's 21.5 season run to a sad end. Rumors are that Netflix is courting him for a reboot though, which could be awesome for all parties. Less censorship for Clarkson and it basically ensures a massive viewership boost for Netflix.
I was at the UM coaches clinic and this was brought up. I thought that the high school coaches on the blog ought to know about this as well as any of you that are parents of high school athletes.
The new eligibility standards have moved the GPA up from 2.0 to 2.3 for the core high school courses of English Math and Science and the lower the GPA the higher the ACT or SAT must be. You cannot repeat courses for a better grade after the 7th semester. You can have a GPA of 2.0 but you will not be able to compete freshman year (academic redshirt). The coaches, kids and their parents had best be thinking about these standards when they set their courses for their freshman year of high school. There may be no way to ever be eligible if you mess up your course requirements and your grades from your freshman year of high school
Long time poster, first time thread starter.
Seeing the recent post on the iphone issues sadly reminded me that the Android version of the MGoBlog app is still broken. At first I thought it was just me, but when I went to
complain post about not being able to post from the app on anything other than wi-fi I was reminded that I'm not alone.
I'm fairly tech savvy, but not so much when it comes to apps so I was wondering if any of my fellow MGoBloggers might be and would be interested in developing a fix or even possible alternative like the IOS MGoBlog HD app.
My apologies if this is an overall minor issue, but I figured with the offseason in full swing now was as good a time as any to bring it up. Thanks for reading. I'll hang up and listen.
TL;DR--->MGoAndroid App wont work unless on wi-fi. Can it be fixed?

Tonight I went to the Alumni Association event for the Greater Detroit club since I moved back to the area recently.
The leader of the Hail and Unite venture, Mike Weinberg pitched the idea to the group of 25-30. Key points:
-Vision for this idea stemmed from "We are the World" song
-Not meant to replace what exists
-Meant to combine student efforts and musicians "connected" to the university
-Will be crowdfunded
-Weinberg will be presenting this to the Chicago and Los Angeles Alumni Associations, probably others as well, but those were the only ones listed
I know it's a controversial subject here; I write this post just to notify those headed to future Alumni Association gatherings.
For those keeping track, I despise this idea.
