Lloyd Brady for sure but number 5 sounds interesting...time to go visit the thread below...
Intelligent diaries, informative threads, logical comments, etc. They're becoming fewer and further in between but they're still here.
Denard smiling pics.
I've only been lurking for 3 seasons but in my view there's Lloyd Brady and then there's everything else.
Mrs Krass' opinion of pictures on Mgoblog.
Before it eventually crossed a line (or two), that was easily the second best thread (after the Lloyd photoshop thread) I've seen since I've been posting here. The legacy of NSFH will never get less funny to me.
I'm so proud to be the poster of the pic that started that thread. I'm hoping that one piece of work will be enough for the MGoHallOfFame.
What was his thread called? I thought it was NSFH but when I search that it flags too many comments for me to get to the OP.
I believe the thread title actually included the phrase "NSFW or home," not NSFH. But after things got way out of hand (at some point it took a very nasty turn), the mods deleted all comments and just left the OP.
It eventually reached the point where someone actually posted something that actually had nudity. That pretty much put it over the edge.
Correct on both accounts. Some of the stuff got really mean, but the OP was pretty funny.
yeah, we need a special archives, similar to the "best of" on craigslist.
I have to admit, it was fascinating watching things blow up that night. I will always think twice, and maybe three times, before I post something again. Having said that, posts here have definitely avoided the over the line pics and jiggly bits since that time.
The immediate flow of information has made visiting other Michigan sports sites unnecessary.
Quality and convenience all in one place.
This site has made visiting numerous other types of sites unnecessary as well, including news sites!
post is always good.
addicted to mgoblog. It's like watching the Three Stooges, if you have to explain it to someone . . .
Through sheer force of will this blog (Brian in particular) has made me love Michigan hockey even though I've watched approximately a handful of games this year.
That's something I'll appreciate because I really like hockey (Blackhawks, sorry I'm from Chicago), and college hockey seems extremely cool.
I like avatars depicting Woodson's one-handed interception against Sparty, probably the single greatest catch I've ever witnessed in person.
I've watched the youtube clip 100 times at least. The best interception I've ever seen.
The posbang circle jerks that are currently "shooting blanks."
Good thing I like whose line, because almost everything here is made up, and the points don't matter!
Whose Line was/is a great show. Wayne Brady might just be untouchable among improv talents
Is that thing in your avatar ever going to pupate?
No. Tim Doyle would come out of nowhere to heckle me 100% of the time.
Anything detrimental about Greg Robinson.
Bar-none the best website for a 20 year old Michigan fan. (YES, better than porn and online gambling)
Also, all the sarcasm and .gifs.. haha, good times.
I love that I have MGoEnemies that neg all of my posts/threads. In a strange way, it somehow means I'm a fully-functioning member of the MGoCommunity.
Its not your fault.
(channeling Good Will Hunting counseling session)
I got love for you. But in post-Malware apocalypse...I downvote you on occasion just because I know it will get a reaction out of you.
No offense taken whatsoever. I find myself doing the same thing to others, just for fun.
TomVH post below this post is why I'm here. All the info that other teams/schools do not have, we have MgoBlog. I don't venture out to other teams site except mabe 11 Warriors (Keep your enemies close) but I don't see a site that can hold this ones jock.
or, more specifically the description of tacopants in the FAQ section:
Tacopants is Jason Avant's eleven-foot tall imaginary friend. Chad Henne spent much of 2005 hitting him between the numbers, which are unfortunately eight feet off the ground and made of dreams. Blessed with infinite eligibility and the ability to sneak on and off the field without alerting the referees -- made of dreams, remember -- Tacopants has taken a lesser role in the offense as Henne matures but still pops up at inopportune times. The term has its genesis in this post.
that despite some turbulence in the past few years, there is a pervasive if sporadic desire to emphasize the positive. The good writing on the front page, the respectful disagreements on the board, and the insightful research in many diaries are great too; in any discussion with non MGO fans, we stand enlightened, informed, (and better) because of the time we spend here.
The fact we have our own legal system.
i love the fact that i know more about your relationship than my own.
Love the convention of prefacing any worthy noun with "MGo" (e.g. "MGoEnemies" above).
Insiders who post.
Like recently we were talking about Alabama grayshirting a kid, and that kid's high school coach comes on here and writes back and forth. Or someone asks what happened to Isaiah Bell and a former M assistant comes on and gives a candid response. Or we're talking about a high school Quarterback from Buffocking Nowheresville, Ohio, and three people who've seen the kid play for years get on and know about his personality traits and pitfalls.
When this blog was just some snarky guy about my age trying to channel DFW while trying to fill a gargantuan hole for good Michigan football analysis, it was still cool and all. But I get such a kick out of the huge web that now pulls in information sources from all over the country.
On top of that, I love when we get a new diarist who's really trying to make a name and puts together something like this week's presumptive Diarist of the Week I get a real kick -- mostly because I am, at my core, an insatiable information sponge -- and there's more good information contributed by the readers here than I got in a lifetime of scouring ESPN.com and my local paper.
I just wanted to voice my support for Canning a Coordinator- Revisited as diary of the week. You know this, obviously, but it was fantastic.
My wife's not here... and Wednesday Recruiting.
I love being able to see what happens with individual players on a play by play basis. Oh, and Muppets. Gotta have Muppets
I'm generally a fan of in the morning reading the drunken threads that end with "I was drunk... sorry guys... I'll email you from Bolivia"
In moderation, mind you.
The love for coach Jackson. Cracks me up every time!
Dark Blue's new avatar.
n00bs don't know what I'm talking about.
I like the intelligent comments sprinkled with some sarcasm. A lot of people have been getting away with stupid shit since the neg bomb disappeared.
exposing Scientology for what it really is
All lloyd brady references for starters. I highly enjoy when the someone replies to another and it keeps snowballing and this mini discussion has little to nothing to do with the original thread discussion. Also the witty sense of humor that people use.
I love that you can ask the most obscure question in the world and as long as it involves Michigan sports on some level somebody here will know the right answer.
And then somebody else will be 100% convinced the first answer is wrong and the debate is on.
I only go here for the funny pictures of cats
The overall quality of the content here is much, much higher than any other college football site. I love EDSBS for humor and probably get a bigger laugh out of the content there than here, but the statistical work here added to the Michigan-only content makes this place one of the best sites on the intertubes.
If you ever start losing appreciation for this place, spend a day or two on Rivals' open college football board.
I enjoy the intelligent banter. You rarely find intelligent and witty conversations on the interwebs these days.
I also enjoy the pictures and gifs. Even though they may or may not add anything to the conversation, they are great for a cheap laugh and I am always up for cheap laughs:
That picture is hilarious
Negging to Bolivia. I think this is the best new meme. This may be at the stage of running its' course around here. I remember the first post where the guy jokingly replaced Oblivion with Bolivian. Before it took off I remember laughing with the word play. And then it just exploded.
The Subsequent posts trying to free FuManBlue were just epic. Finally, any hints where people ask how Bolivia is or to prepare for a trip there.
Negged for thinking "negging to Bolivia" is running its course.
Haha, forgive me, as I know not what I was thinking in that moment. Neg accepted.
I wish I could remember the thread, but the original reference was an autocorrect from an iPhone. Profit was in the thread and ran with it, from there the rest is history.
Well I mean, it has been a while since you've seen a girl right? Or are many women living in the woods these days?
You guys should settle your differences with a steel cage match or something.
As long as the steel cage isn't a mailbox, I'm down.
Pot, meet Kettle. Kettle, meet Pot.
no picnic is complete without...
wait for it.....
The debates that spontaneously break out between posters. The analysis and predictions. Muppets.
the "What Are You Drinking Tonight?" threads...I'm contemplating cracking open a Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat as we speak.
I love the "what's for lunch" threads and the debates about restaurants and food (e.g. the BBQ thread from earlier in the week). I still submit that Chick-fil-A is the best lunch spot in the world.
Except on Sundays.
Love those. Hearing about obscure beer that I then randomly find somewhere that turns out to be awesome? +1 of course.
1- Lloyd Brady
2- Fake Chat diaries. PLEASE COME BACK. Those were hilarious.
4- any mgouser created media (Denard: the happening, season wallpapers, Photoshop threads)
5- the crazies. You know they're fun to read.
1- pos/neg ability on iPhone app
All else is gold. Keep up the good work Mgoworld.
I love people that upvote their own posts. No one seems to downvote themselves, though. That seems like more fun.
[Edit: Yep, it IS fun!]
I love people that upvote their own posts even though the point system isn't working.
I love when ignorant turds drop from 300 to -300 points in a matter of hours. Restores faith in humanity sometimes.
Its outstanding watching the total drop as the MGoGangMentality kicks in and gets up to speed. You know the OP thought their post/thread was a good one when they clicked "save" and quickly found out that they were sorely mistaken!
I think it's even funnier when someone who is getting negged then posts ten or twelve replies/rants/opportunities to everyone who criticizes him and then wonders why his point total is going down so fast.
Most people here, myself included, get really serious about Michigan sports; it's great to have comic relief sometimes.
I love it when posters with usernames like "Ridiculous Assertion" make ridiculous assertions.
The fact that there's one special corner of the world where "everyone murders" will never get old.
The guy who posted the picture of himself OMG shirtless with his sons.
I like octal9's avatar and flow charts.
It was pure genius even if it got a little tiring the closer you got to the Wisky game.
i liek pie :)
Obssesive Michigan fans obsessing about Michigan
Too many things I love about MGoBlog. Here are some I didn't see.
1. Any time someone books it, or Rabacks it, or BKFinest it.
2. The anonymous source that gets people riled up.
3. Spontaneous tangents.
4. Non-revenue sports updates.
5. The occasional life lesson that accidently surfaces.
3. Spontaneous tangents.
Also math puns.
In my short time here, I suppose my favorite thing would be the rare folks who aren't satisfied with Bolivia and want to be negged all the way to Tierra Del Fuego. Not nearly as catchy, but definitely down there.
Wait, if you joined after the MGoMalware debacle and have 693 points, that means you've posted 693 times in the last five weeks?
Now that I do the math that's not as ridiculous as I thought, but still some pretty heavy lifting.
I joined a few weeks before it actually.
You just made me MGoSchwing!
THE KNOWLEDGE. When Steve Sarkisian becomes our next coach he will be redeemed. YES!
20 new threads a day on average. If half of them are as good as this one I'm happy. So, I'm usually happy most days :-)
because I notice that the font of the letters in the end zone looks different than it used to, and then finding a hundred people on this blog who not only noticed too, but can tell you what the font is, what it was, when and why it was changed, and what's going to happen to the basketball court.
