I don't get it.
The "Are We Under Lockdown Again?" Open Thread
On a completely unrelated note, what is the MGoEtiquitte for changing avatars? I think a change is in order with the coming of a new coaching staff. Any thoughts? Suggestions?
just tweeted that there is a players meeting tomorrow at 4. Let the speculation begin.
Gruden, Gruden, No Whammy, No Whammy, STOP!
I loved that game show. I actually mentioned it in another thread a day ago. Good times.
looks like we weren't as lucky as that one guy who figured out the timing
I hate to see all of this funny content that is the only joy I am getting out life right now and I can't even show my appreciation with a +1
I don't see it on his twitter page - http://twitter.com/tomvh - but then again I have no idea how to use twitter.
twitter hides any recent tweets from people not logged in. i think it's to push you to create an account in order to stay up to date
yeah it's kind of frustrating that they do that but I understand why.
Hopefully they don't figure out that on your phone the most recent tweets still show up without having an account. shhhh
.....i shouldn't have, but i giggled at that.
But those guys over at Tiger Droppings are alright, and they are rational thinkers, unlike other team sites *cough*MLive*cough*RCMB*cough*. Sure, they have a few nuts, but who doesn't? Every family has to have that one uncle that no one talks about....
"i'll bet anyone $500 that the defense doesn't show up."
They could be still trying to stop Mississippi State from scoring again!
Now, come on.
They haven't scored in over a week now...
what lockdown means?
It seems like there are only a couple of new posts, when earlier today we were getting dozens, so I figures the site had been locked down to keep from crashing again.
If it's still functioning normally, and people have just run out of things to say, this thread can be deleted.
Seems like it is on lockdown because voting privileges aren't working. Good call on the new thread.
i believe it's traffic/site functionality. i had to create the FlightAware post via iPhone.
You can gauge the traffic by our ability to do stuff ... I think logins on the home page have been disabled since the music started and the carousel began turning, but from time to time it goes deeper. The best has been being able to vote and reply pretty much anywhere (although I haven't tried to create a new post; no big loss, what would I say now that hasn't been said already?), and right now it seems like you can reply only to posts and vote on nothing. (Presumably the iPhone/iPod access hits the site slightly differently. My Touch prefers not to log in ... don't know if you had to be logged in already or if you can log in on your iDevice now. I'm happy to blame my Touch.)
Your efforts during these dark days will not soon be forgotten, M-Wolverine.
I would trade my iPhone for a coach to have been named last week. Between the week of productivity lost and years of potential life eroded due to stress, an iPhone is a small price to pay.
I'd +1 you, but we're on lockdown.
It feels so freeing to have no voting privileges. I feel like I can run around naked, crying about double rainbows and hugging trees.
IOU... man it seems like I've been issuing a lot of those lately.
Every time I check back each thread has 100 new posts, I imagine tonights post game talk will deliver record traffic to this site.
We seem to have lost the ability to vote again.
The voting is normal. We have simply lost the ablity to form opinions about various posts. This is a much more serious problem.
You know what? What you just wrote is the . . . .uh . . . wow! Look at that dog!
That is very strange because I am positive that I lost the ability to form at least rational opinions a long time ago. At least back then I was still able to vote. Now, with no ability to form rational opinions, I am also unable to vote. Color me very concerned . . .
This. Kudos good sir.
I would +1 this if I could.
They've also reported that Miles is getting a loaner from a used car dealership.
also has murdered people.
Ad clicks=MGoBlog Points. Genius, genius I tell ya!
- create a forum topic or diary
- comment on a front page article or diary
Brian is getting greedy. Ad clicks for points.
Is kinda dirty. I refuse.
Ad Block Plus UP IN DIS B*%$#
No ads for me...!
(Get it if you have Firefox)
Great plug-in....For general browsing or porn sites. Disable it for sites like this with good content and click an ad if you're really bored. It's the non-douche thing to do.
Sounds like a plan
I only have Iceweasel and Chromium. This place is one of the very few places that has adblocker disabled, though.
So post away any news or thoughts here.
We peasants have been repressed again. Non-App folk even more so.
It could also possibly mean people are running out of things to talk about.
We've hired a coach and I've missed it?!?
(Dave Brandon typing style....) !
On this blog? Never...That's what keeps people hitting F5 all day.
We are beating the decomposed corpse of a horse by now...
I think at times, Brian/Tim/mods shut down voting/new post functionality to allow us to be able to actually use the site. Its the same thing as before. This iteration seems to be a preemptive strike against the rush caused by a potential Les "mmmm truGreen Chemlawn" Miles hire in the next 24 hrs. Its more important for Brian to keep the site up (so he can make money for food and computers and interwebs and Michigan football) than for us to be able to give each other mgopoints.
Is it wrong that I will completely give up my moral standards, and back Les Miles, all because TWolf wants it to be so?
"It was only 2 shakes and a quiver..." (source Mgoblogger)
It's working for me...took a couple of days but I'm working through it.
Wow! I wonder what coach the players want to see come to Michigan!
I, for one, accept our new grass eating overlord.
You're taking an awful risk Vader Brandon...this had better work
Even more affirming that it comes from a Lloyd recruit. Come on home Les.
Anybody else just staring at Chris Fowler and attempting to use your mind to force him to reveal our new coach?
Does that mean I have to hide my shank, AGAIN?
Thought people might enjoy seeing this picture of the 1973 team:
Not saying, just saying....
the horse collars that linemen an linebackers use to wear.
Ps. I'm being repressed.
What's up with that aquamarine color Moeller and the assistants are wearing? Who was our supplier in '73?

The dude with the sweet 'fro to the right of DB has a junkyard dog stare that would make Marvin Robinson cry. Zoom in if you don't mind wetting your pants...
RR was fired.
Then he wasn't.
Then he was.
Then Harbaugh was a lock.
Then he went with his dream to coach in the NFL.
Then LSU's administration was ready to boost Miles' contract to keep him.
And now they're willing to give up cash so we can have him.
On the coaching search. I even agree with your conclusion.
LSU will get Pelini, who is a great coach and was the DC for Miles in the 07 NC game. They wouldn't have to pay him as much as LM and will get better results and will always keep Saban on his a$$.
If we take LM we have to pay him almost what LSU did or more $4.5 million and he is not a bonified canidate.
Hoke can take a concrete parking lot and turn it into a beautiul corn field, which has been proven from Ball St. to San Diego St. Also he will not cost as much as LM. Put HoKe with TCU's Dick Bumpas and we come out a whole lot better than paying LM and his staff big money
Not bonified? I can't speak for everyone here but I can say I am getting that special feeling now that I think we might have a coach again.
Well, he didn't say Miles wasn't a bona fide candidate .
Those three chicks posted in a prior thread might say 'bonified'
That Miles is a bona fide candidate is beyond question. Hell, he's prob agreed to take the job by now.
But he said bonified, and I thought he was talking about stiffies. You know, coach search woodies. A standing hampton, as they say across the pond.
And I guess we shouldn't go there w/ Lester either.
Also, one of the best teams in the B1G West will have a new coach and maybe a couple years of rebuilding maybe even a bum end to recruiting. That's a nice bonus.
But seriously, quit worrying so much about who is the better deal for the money, we're one of the wealthiest programs in the country, we should take advantage of it. BCS trophies aren't given out on the basis of wins/dollar anyway.
If Les Miles costs twice as much as Hoke and is only a slightly better coach, I say we take him. I'm not going to be happy if we lose to OSU thinking, "sure OSU beat us, but look how much less we pay our coach!"
but this F5 key keeps winking at me. I love her. Help, please, for the kids...........
you're on your own -- aka the YOYO plan is in affect.
I can't for the life of me understand why we hired a search comittee to hire Miles or Hoke? Just doesn't make sense at all.
Respect the process.
I want Auburn to lose, if that isn't clear.
- Les Miles
FWIW, I just read on another site that an LSU plane is headed to Lincoln.
Mad Hatter it is.
This is frustrating.
Or the posting?
We call it a "Time Out". Now behave.
This is why we can't have nice things.
but my mom just texted me to let me know she saw on the news that we're looking at a guy from LSU to be the next head coach. You heard it here first.
Every time I see Tom Rinaldi, his stories are either about Tiger Woods or someone dying. Thanks for ruining my day, Tom. Asshole.
He drags everything out and makes it all worse/sadder,
"And then....Chris's parents got a call from their doctor saying their son....had cancer"
"It wasn't golf that was on Woods's mind that day.....but instead.....his family....and all the pain that he caused...... weighed heavily on him......the man we all thought was invincible.....now....shows that he is in fact......human"
Maybe Gruden is in Baton Rouge and Brandon isn't talking with Les Miles. ;-)
Why is it that everytime we go into lock down I seem to lose 30 points?
edit: it may be my spelling, or lack there of

You seem to have lost your grammar too. Plus you stutter. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
wat are you t-t-t-talking abuot?
Wait, I thought Rivals had a gut feeling it was Hoke? Are you telling me nobody knows what's going on except DB?
Are you telling me nobody knows what's going on except DB?
What a revelation!!!
Was given by John U. Bacon on WTKA. It's basically the same as above, but here it is anyway:
UM football rumor test: 1-Is your infallible source certain he knows who the next coach will be? 2-Is that source Dave Brandon? If no -> no
Watching these two offenses is going to make the coaching situation even more worrying
Does this remind you of anything?
With all of the information on here, surely someone has a little insight on what Denard, et all. are thinking??? There is no way all the players are keeping quiet on what they are or are not are planning. Are we all watching the coaching ball too close and missing the fact that Denard has already moved out of his dorm and enrolled at a community college accross the street from Oregon?
Troy Woolfolk appears to be in favor of Miles.
Denard was at the basketball game yesterday. Les runs a version of the spread. And Les Miles is Les Miles.
Denard's not going anywhere.
(Angelique, Henson) Pinkel declined to be interviewed by M.
that must be why i can only see some threads when i click 'mgoboard'?
Don't appear on the Board, because you can click the "MGoBoard" choice (or the sport of choice). And since you can only post threads from the App now...
well i guess that's something you learn somewhere between 2 and 30,895 MGoPoints.....
I didn't want an iphone, now i do
