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.
I access MGoBlog via my iPhone (via App(s)), iPad and MacBook Pro (via Safari). Lately I have noticed that on my iPad I get logged out every time I click on a link, such as going to a new page, forum topic, etc. No problems with my laptop or iPhone. Has anyone else noticed this? Possibly something to do with iOS 8.0.2? I do not have this problem with other websites; one login is sufficient.
I have been reading mgoblog for a number of years and have witnessed great support by the mgoblog community supporting people/causes in need.
May 4th of this year my son Garrick, a UM student-athlete, died by suicide (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/garrick-roemer-mens-track-commits-suicide).
Today would have been his 20th birthday. I am asking that we not only remember him today, but to raise awareness about suicide, depression and mental illness. In addition, I would like to ask for donations to the UM Depression Center in his name: https://depression.umich.edu/giving/?to=GarrickRoemer
This would be an incredible birthday present in my sons name for our family, but more importantly these donations will assist in medical research, education, and public policy so that hopefully, no other families and friends will have to endure such great pain and loss.
Thank you all and Go Blue!
First OP, so I apologize if something isn't right here. Tried to embed too.
Look what happened to Domino's Pizza after Dave Brandon was gone. Seems as though "Domino's" didn't listen to their customers, like "Michigan" isn't listening to it's fans, until DB got out of the way. Hadn't seen this anywhere, but I think it should give us hope.
Where's the love??? There comes a time when you know you've got to make a change.
