META: The Season Cometh
As you may have noticed, the season is around the corner. Thank you, sweet 6 pound 8 ounce baby Jesus, the season is almost here. But with that said, might be time to refresh some people on the changes with in-season rules for the board.
During the season, there are no OT threads. Threads about pet issues, tv show discussions, or musical groups coming to the Palace will be deleted with extreme prejudice. There are exceptions, of course; stuff involving other college football teams are generally acceptable, as are Lions-related threads and a Sunday NFL open thread. If we kill Bin Laden again, that's fair game. It's a case-by-case thing.
I know. I likewise thought this was America
This horrible infringement on your First Amendment rights goes into effect one week before the start of the season, or a week from this Saturday. Also, be advised that Brian occasionally has to change the posting privileges in-season to prevent absolute chaos. So, if you have 101 points and try to post a "WTF WAS THAT????11??" thread after a loss and you can't, there's probably a reason. In Soviet Russia, board posts you.
Beyond that, a few season-related things to remember:
- The trolls will come. Most of them will breathe primarily from their mouths. And most of them will be from Michigan State. Resist the urge to feed the trolls. You can inform the mods in the Moderator Action Sticky thread, and we will take care of it.
- Consider your threads carefully, and ask yourself if it's really new. After a loss, you will see three or four straight threads titled, "well that sucked," or "why did we suck?" or "I'm disappointed" or "that was disappointingly sucky." Your opinion is like a snowflake; it's unique, just like everyone else's. If you can insert your opinion in an existing thread, that is encouraged.
- Personal attacks on players will not be tolerated. "Should Kalis be getting more reps than Mealer" is fine. "Mealer sucks, get his ass out of there" is not.
- There is an influx of newbies when the season begins. Resist the urge to start flame wars with all of them.
- Muppets are for BIG THINGS only. Beating Alabama is a muppets thing. Beating UMass is not.
Hoke Uber Alles.
OMG, OMG, OMG...it's my favorite yearly post. We're almost there!!
No one's first amendment rights were infringed upon; MGoBlog is not preventing anyone from buying a domain and posting questions about their dogs' anal glands.
but... if it's not on MGoBlog than no one will ever read it.... I'll never be as popular as MGoBlog.....:(
Today's Post: How to express your dog's anal glands and impress Megan Fox!
Tomorrow: Our SUPER HOT vidcast on ANAL cleaning and care will make you PANT.
Now that is some serious SEO!
I had to take my dog to the vet this morning to get her glands expressed. I almost, ALMOST started a thread about it.
"Glands expressed" - when matched with the word "anal" - is my favorite medical term (euphemism?) for a horrifyingly gross action. It also should never be used as part of a drunken pick-up line at a college bar.
On a positive note, canine BiSB is probably much happier, less stinky, and is no longer scooting around the carpet on it ass.
My dog had such persistent anal gland issues we had to have them surgically removed. The vet said she'd never seen such large ass glands.
She traced it on a piece of paper to prove to her colleague who was vacationing how monstrous it was.
pronounced this :
in Soviet Russia, board posts you
like Teddy KGB in Rounders?
Also 2 weeks till football. Hallelujah!
"You feeling satisfied now Teddy? Because I can on busting you up all night."
kid's got alligator blood. Can't get rid of him.
and sit down in front.
If I create the most ridiculously OT thread ever right now just because I'm technically still allowed, will you hate me forever?
And if I told you you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?
If you did that...
I heart you
So who do I discuss Walking Dead with?
They usually have good discussions about TWD. That is if you can stand spoilers.
I guess I'll be keeping comments to myself then...
After a loss, you will see three or four straight threads titled, "well that sucked," or "why did we suck?" or "I'm disappointed" or "that was disappointingly sucky."
What a negative nelly. You're already assuming losses?
That was my reaction. What a wimp :)
Ever since he became BiSB he's had an utter lack of confidence
Something about "South Bend" filled me with unearned and irrational confidence.
Question, just to clarify, since I'm sure this will come up with the Tigers being in the playoff hunt: Tigers threads are still allowed, correct?
local pro sports have generally always been allowed, especially come playoff time.
Pssh, Im posting about the Olympics and cats and shit and THERES...wait. everything you can do to stop me... Well played modatron...well played.
Tennis coverage resumes in January. Prepare yourselves, Board!
Will need some guidelines, please!
If Kate gets photographed (or Photoshopped; I'm not picky) wearing nothing more than Maize and Blue body paint, that doesn't technically count as an OT....
Check me if I'm wrong, Sammy (i.e. BiSB).
So what you're saying is: TOOL IS COMING TO THE PALACE!!!
Arizona and Penn St: If I am limited on info involving these two programs, I will be happy.
This pleases me although I don't know why no-OT season can't start with fall camp.
I keed I keed
Ahh, once again time for soul crushing moderation and banhammers.
After watching faithfully every Saturday for many years, I am finally making it up to watch my first game at the Big House this year! So excited!
I am ready for sanity to be in greater display on the board. Thank you.
Exactly when and where should all the Kate Upton GIFs be posted during the season?
Preferably right below the muppets as the first comment.
Obviously Alabama is a Muppets thing and UMass is not....but is MSU a Muppets thing?
yes. Next year no, because we will beat them this year.
Where did we land on Yuri Wright recruitment threads? He's still in play, right?
