Congratulations on toying the line. I, for one, hope you are gone as quickly as you would like Rodriguez gone. Good riddance. And grow up.
Character and Cruelty
I will oblige you with a neg. We all would be better off had you screamed this rant into a pillow rather than posting. Good luck
I added a neg myself. You are correct...that is a brutal thread.
To the OP, I think the best advice for posting is to create content, stop, read it over again to give yourself the opportunity to not look like an idiot, and only then hit SAVE.
If you read the post carefully (and I have now about 20 times) you will notice the OP is only a political & religious reference away from breaking EVERY rule on posing threads. This is truly one for the ages and should be retained, IMO, in the Moderator Sticky section as a primer in "what not to do" when creating a thread.
This one has it all.
Character and cruelty FTW
No I don't get wood from that.
I'm just not sure how to take this post. But I +1'd you anyway.
Dude. Put down the bottle before typing.
But I'm still trying to figure out the metaphor. "Character and cruetly?" Perhaps trying to say there's more character in the salad dressing of life when you mix the ingredients cruetly rather than tossing them right on the greens?
Remind me again how croutons fit into the salad metaphor? Also, what type of lettuce are we talking? Romaine?
Pushed forcefully into the sweaty palms of whatever coach will make the salad crisp and delicious to watch.
Forgive me, but it sounds like you do have something against Rich Rod.
Very original post, bro. Good job. Not.
You have to wonder 'where is Bill Martin and what is he thinking right about now?
But I'll bet he has been on a boat all day
He was always my favorite player (I set my alarm clock for 6:21 instead of 6:30, for example) but he is quickly losing my respect. Even if I agreed, there's no reason to twat that, especially if Rodriguez is back next year!
please explain the alarm clock thing....
#21 was Desmond "The Magic"'s jersey number. I think he rocked the #1 jersey too.
Desmond did not wear the #1 jersey.
D'oh. Thanks for the correction.
Desmond wore 21
Desmond Howard #21
Using 21 has to be good luck, right?
Unless he leaves. Then I won't get up at all.
I think it will be good to have a fresh start with (presumably and hopefully) Harbaugh.
There will likely be a transition period, and we will probably lose some players, but something tells me that in year 3 of Harbaugh we won't have a defense that's 100th+ in all categories, we will have some special teams with which to speak of, and we won't by losing to Ohio State or our bowl opponent by 30+ points.
I really wanted to continue my support of Rich Rod, but after todays debacle it's impossible.
Dear David Brandon:
For the sake of the Michigan Faithful's heart health please clean house.
How are we better off from reading your opinion on this?
every neg bang you get. Never mind the poor spelling and grammar (did you actually graduate?) - the slurs against those who have supported Rodriquez are a bit much. I guess Old Blues like yourself have trouble understanding change ("spread offense bullshit").
It's Rodriguez not Rodriquez.
if you're gonna call someone out for spelling, you should double check your spelling...
its a blog, who cares about spelling and grammar.
you must be new here...
What has this place become?
but with less articles (posts) about boobs
You can go to hell.
I got a better idea, No fucking way.
...happened to you? Have you lost your mind?!?
We should strive for intelligent discussion around here. We should write intelligently so we remain the last bastion of thoughtful discussion on the interwebs (and YES spelling does count). We should support the University of Michigan...that doesn't mean we always have to agree with what is going on or with who is in charge. However, you are acting like an Asshat. That should be beneath this blog, and I hope it's beneath you.
this spread offense bullshit isyou are an embarassment to the schoolblog
I am wondering why you are wanting to get neg bombed so badly? Sounds to me like someone who is a cutter, needs the pain to feel better and get over their issues. I give you one less just because you really wanted it. Might need some counseling for that. P.S. don't get a former drill sergeant!
You, sir, are forcing me to cancel my vacation in Wichita next month.
+1 to you for having the courage to vacation in Wichita.
I think it was sarcasm
mine was irony.
why is everyone whispering about my vacation plans?
Uhh...because your GF is hot?
if only. she would be the first person that would advise against a holiday in Kansas.
There's the joke about having won first prize in a contest. An all-expenses paid, one-week vacation in Wichita was the first prize. Second prize was an all-expenses paid, two-week vacation.
Then, the other joke was: "Wichita. Nice place to live, but you wouldn't want to visit there."
I think I like Option #2, better.
In a post filled with general ridiculousness, this
I know everyone has had his dick half way down their throat all year
particularly made me wonder what in the wide world of sports are you talking about?
I believe he's referring to "Deep Throat," a 1970s era pornographic film about a woman whose clitoris was in her throat. What this has to do about Michigan football, I'm not sure.
I think RR should be out too but this post is just atrocious. I'd neg you if I wasn't on my iPhone, so please, someone neg him for me
Just for you. That post needs a couple more negs though.
Wtf man? Calling mgobloggers retards and shit. Seriously, have some respect and if you're gunna say that stuff, don't be such an asshole about it.
a "dick down our throats"
"spread won't work" quote in the same post.
When you wake up tomorrow morning after your drunken stupor wears off, will you remember where you blacked out and left all your MGoPoints?
The douche is strong with this one.
Between your post and Yoda there, this has to be one of the classic posts of all time. HOF material for sure. MODS: Please....?
drinking is involved.
Look, after today's debacle I get the desire that some have to get Harbaugh to Michigan, and to have his aggressive in-your-face style on our side against the likes of Dantonio and Tressel. So, I am not going to criticize that at all. However, this "fit at Michigan" stuff is very dangerous. M football has always been at its best when it is renewing itself, not blindly looking backwards. "Those who stay will be champions" everybody can rally around (and does not need to be reinstated). "Character and cruelty" can be a very delicate balance.
I thought I flushed.
but let's be serious this spread offense bullshit is an embarassment to the school
Christ, not this shit again.
OK, so which teams are playing in the 2011 National Championship football game and what base offenses are they running?
Pro set? No.
Multiple I-formation? No.
Run and Shoot? No.
Oh wait! That's right! Could it be? NO!
Look, for the last effing time: PSU, OSU have both run spread offenses in the Big Ten with mobile quarterbacks, led the league in offensive productivity and won conference titles and landed in major BCS bowls. Stop being Gary Danielson. Scheme doesn't matter that damn much.
What does matter is defense - something Michigan has not had for the last 4 years.
As for "character and cruelty", seriously dude, why didn't you laugh your ass off at Chip Kelly's cruelty to Harbaugh's Stanford Cardinal team and the fake injuries Harbaugh and his staff ordered from the sidelines in the second half? I did. They were completely out of breath.
I totally agree with you and therefore must sigh. Sigh...
But look what Wisc. did against a great BCS Buster team! They run a proset and, oh crap, I,...I, just saw the score. But, antinonirregardless the spread is a fad. It will die, go away spread. I want to see 3 yards every time we snap the ball.
I am up for that character and cruelty again on the field when the time comes. Just not up for anyone inflicting it on here towards other members. Jim is my guy. I grew up watching him play and him being this great of a coach caught me by surprise.
If he is brought to Ann Arbor, I hope he does a job that pleases all the Rich Rodriguez fans. He earns their support, he'll never know greater loyalty.
this one thread will poison the phrase "character and cruelty" from all common usage, forever. If they want to talk about the good ol' days in Palo Alto along with Jim Plunkett and John Elway and Coach Harbaugh and chortle about "character and cruelty," fine. It's a
Indian Cardinal thing. We wouldn't undrstand.
I am, and have always been all-in for RR and his staff, even after this latest debacle.
If Jimmy is hired, I will support him and root for him because then he would be the M football HC. I would do this despite some of the things that he has done that disappointed me.
Although I do agree that RR should go and will be gone soon, saying that the spread was an embarassment is extremely false. RR is an offensive genuis and a good coach. I just think that everything that could go wrong did go wrong and the negativity is just too strong to overcome. RR will be very successful somewhere else. It just wasn't meant to be. That's all.
Two spread teams are in the national championship game you twit. Yea, truly an embrassment to this school.
Damn, just beat me to it.
Fire Chip Kelly and Gene Chizik. Those spread offenses are an embarrassment to their schools.
Seriously, RR, Urban Meyer, Brian Kelly and Mack Brown all need to go.
one of them already has so...
Urban retired though.
I've been refreshing this page for 10 minutes, watching the OP's MGoPoints melt away.
That "Voting details" page reads like a novel; the scroll bar keeps getting smaller and smaller.
"refreshing this page for 10 minutes..." That is truly pathetic. Get a life. GO BLUE
im sure gene chizik is afraid to show his face in public for running that spread offense. it's humiliating really, scoring all those points
for Bolivia. We have been sending so many asshats down there that they've created their own minor political party. They only have three seats in the Bolivian parliament thus far... but they are gaining strength.
Oh, yeah, and your post was complete bullshit, so I did that 'neg' thing you mentioned.
The question that should be asked when talking about how the spread offense could succeed is "physical or finesse" U of Florida (with Tebow), Auburn and Miss St all ran a very physical offense that pounded at the opposing d-line. Northwestern, Clemson, WV (minus Owen Schmitt), and the Michigan teams under RR seemed to rely more on team speed and finesse. These two traits can a team so far.
Anyone who's ignorant enogh to believe that RR is the man for job is probably good enough to clean the dookie streaks from my toilet bowl, Everyone needs to stop being so senstive and blind to the trruth and realize that the RR era is over (thank god).
and only a neg-bomb will do... Bombs away!
Points well spent.
I lol'd at this humorous misspelling:
Everyone needs to stop being so senstive and blind to the trruth and realize that the RR era is over (thank god).
I've been to Wichita and you are better off hanging out in Lawrence or metro Kansas City. I'm surprised this dude went off the deep end. He use to have some good posts in the past!
at around 500 points.
I was right in the middle of a fucking reptile zoo and somebody was giving booze to these goddamn things. Won't be long now before they tear us to shreds.
I have no idea what you're talking about but this made me laugh really hard. Thanks.
You think you're making some kind of stand with this post? We're all frustrated as hell today, but most don't feel the need to drunkenly rant like a loser who got dumped. Pull it together, man, have a little dignity. I guess dignity is a little much to ask from somebody whose go-tos thus far are dong and poop jokes.
If I could sacrifice all my mgopoints into destroying yours, I would. Unfortunately, I can only neg you once per each post.
I figured if he kept responding all night with enough posts, I could be down to around 28000 by the time I got him into the negative.
You can go back and retroactively neg his older posts if you like.
"A dick down our throats"
"The spread bullshit"
And the one that sticks out to me the most, the use of the word retarded. Fuck you pal. This had nothing to do with whether we like RR or not. You could have used a more constructive way to get your point across. I hope what ever you drank before posting this shit kicks your ass in the morning. Congrats on reaching NOS status. You'll be in Boliva soon enough.
the use of the word "retarted".....
I dont see the problem.
Get over it.
what's wrong with any slur demonizing/at the expense of a group of people?
Do you regularly use racial, sexual, and other slurs as well?
If you mean stupid, say stupid. Don't offend groups of people while youre at it
is the great responses from the mgobloggers- pure entertainment!
You used to have really good posts and didn't you have over 10,000 points? Gosh.
Damn Wichitan.....you were a solid poster for a long time......sad to see you can't hang with the team during its toughest hours.
This picture always makes me laugh.
You mean the offensive scheme that was run to Top 10 effectiveness by a squad consisting of only 2 seniors and is currently similar to both teams in the BCS Title Game? That's what you're going to call out?!
There's a lot to be disappointed about this season, but the offense certainly isn't one of them.
That said; Jesus, man, show some grit.
This guy really knows a ton about football. I like the "Spread Offense" comment. Another mgosuicide, this is sad but hard not to watch.
"if you don't get some serious wood when you hear the mission statement we are going to win with "character and cruetly" then you're a fucking retard."
There's an argument for replacing RR with Harbaugh, but this isn't it. Mission statements are empty rhetoric, and every organization has one.
Looks like drunk posting to me.
I wonder if WichitanWolverine woke up this morning going: WTF?? Where are all my points??
will never make it to the NFL after failing for 4 years in college in a spread. Oh wait....
I know it's hard to keep it under control...
what's the point of having a minimum point total to post new content when people get insane amounts of points for posting pictures and .gif files in replys instead of original thoughts/ideas or even opinions. Not saying that's how the OP in this thread got his points, but seriously, points are meaningless for judging whether someone can be trusted to post quality content when people upvote single word replys and silly cat pictures.
Wasn't KoB from Omaha? What is it about being from smallish second fiddle cities in western midwestern states that leads to this sort of behavior?
