Big Play Junior Hemingway scored at the end of the 1st half vs. Pittsburgh tonight. He is playing the #3 slot for KC tonight.
Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
Just saw that man I loved him playin for Michigan. He blocked always played hard bailed Denard out a lot. That speach he gave at the end of the Sugar Bowl after he wont MVP was awesome.
I hope you were loaded when you posted this.
Great to see this! i made a tweet saying score a TD tonight, he has a lot of talent. i hope he makes the team and plays a role for KC, was a huge can of him at Michigan
Hemingway's TD starts at 2:12.
Sorry I can't embed, but apparently the NFL prevents it.
This is thread worthy?
Who are you to judge what is and isn't? So many whiners lately.
And he whines a lot. It's hard to understand why some people care so much about what others find interesting and post on a message board.
hey man. he's been here almost two months. respect his authoritah.
Do you ever plan on NOT being an asshole? Your posting history is pretty sad.
Of course it is. It's a topic about a former Wolverine. How is that not clear to you?
Then we should expect to see a thread about every Wolverine in the NFL, including linemen, about their game production. Come on, guys. Let's make countless threads every time Jake Long pancakes someone!
Every time I see one of your posts it rekindles my internal debate over whether you're a troll or just that big of a douche.
Not trolling. I am as die hard a M fan as everyone else, but I call out stupid or pointless threads when I see them. I like reading the board more than the blig posts but I hate seeing it flooded with dumb crap, like "so and so scored a TD in the NFL" or "drinking thread." That stuff is so lame.
Similarly, several of us like to point out stupid or pointless commenters when we see them. You are stupid and pointless.
For a second there I really considered giving you some honest advise, from one human being to another, on how to be less standoffish and thus actually make a contribution to this board instead of just running around raining on various parades.
I think he should go start his own blog.
Go ahead...get it started. We'll stop by in a little while...
No we won't stop by - there wouldn't be any threads besides on game day.
If this stuff bothers you so much go elsewhere. Or, here's a thought, let's see you contribute something to the board besides endless bitching.
I'm just leaving to like decent beer instead of mass market crap, so the drinking threads give me ideas of something to look for.
"I call out stupid or pointless threads when I see them."
With all due respect and from the bottom of my Maize and Blue heart...Let me say this.
That's not your fucking job around here. We have mods and a site owner who has set down specific rules. Abidbe by them and be a nicer poster on here or enjoy Bolivia.
Just because you're a fan doesn't mean you're not acting like a troll.
I think he's just in high school. We were all idiots back then.
...even in the NFL
Are you thread worthy?
Eat a bag of dongs, douchebag.
I was trying to come up with a clever way to tell this guy he's a d-bag and then I saw your comment, which cannot be beaten. Well done.
You're a douche bag. Always.
Darth Borg strikes again!
Threads about the professional exploits of former Michigan players are never OT, so the answer you are looking for from a moderating standpoint is "yes", Wolverines Dominate. Now, if this was already being covered in an NFL open thread or a more general thread tracking Wolverines in the NFL, then this wouldn't perhaps survive as a standalone thread, so to your other point, we do make an attempt to mitigate overlapping discussions even in the on-topic world.
I am still trying to figure out why people click on comments that the don't deem "worthy," and then post a comment. This is the internet version of "voting with one's feet," and both of the poster's "votes" say that this thread is, indeed, worthy.
Just like my two "votes..."
The answer is simple, the trolls are free to roam in a voting-neutered MGoBoard. These jerkoffs have turned what would normally be a 20 comment thread into a 50+ comment ragefest of posters telling them what dicks they are. Some guys get off on weird things.
This is response worthy?
Just marking where the now 36 direct responses to the original comment end. There are 11 after this, for a grand total of 47 responses. This could have been a short, easy-to-read update on Junior's progress trying to make it onto an NFL team -- something I'm interested in, and something officially on-topic. Instead, you turned it into an unholy mess.
It is, as so many others have already said, absolutely thread-worthy. It told me something I didn't know. It's about one of the main things that is going on right now -- recent Michigan players trying to make NFL rosters and scout teams. An update on the status of all of them (Kovacs, etc.) would make a great DIARY -- let alone a quick Board post about one of them.
Yes this is a good thread. When the NFL season begins, I'd love to see a weekly roundup of Wolverines in the NFL. Seems like a good project for MGoBlog.
Sadly, it would be abandoned halfway through, like countless other projects. Maybe we could get a rundown of failed mgoblog projects?
Why don't you jump right on that? Seems right up your alley, since it involves being negative and critical. Why don't you start your own free site so you can do it "right"?
So is B so infallible that he is immune from any criticism? Public figures, and yes, B is a public figure, are open to criticism.
Agreed, but sarcastic criticism here changes nothing, except further the opinion that fruitless petty criticism on the boards is your MO. If you had a more balanced approach instead of cruising the boards looking for something to criticize, we may find your comments less annoying. I don't mind criticism, but when I see your name, thats all I ever see
Start a thread about it.
Magnus at TouchTheBanner does just that every week.
Since the predominant topic of discussion here at Mgoblog is about what is and what isn't worthy of discussion, I would like to know if this comment is 'comment worthy' before I post it:
Junior's speech is after the Sugar Bowl, especially with Hoke's proud countenance in the background, will go down as one of my favorite moments in UM football. I typically do not care about what happens in the NFL, but when I do, I care about former UM players like Junior.
junior played so hard..helped the transition so much..so happy he had that....pulling for him to excell
out. I'm really happy with "Those Who Stood".
“I don’t know if I was fighting for my life. I still had one leg,” he said in the Michigan locker room after the game. “C’mon, I can squat a ton. One leg’s good enough.”
Does anyone else find the insane number of personal fouls called this year to be ruining the game? I was watching the Ravens game the other day and after watching for a total of 15 minutes, saw FOUR personal fouls called. Maybe one was justified. Add to that the fact that the announcers must be told by the NFL to stick with the refs, because they aren't making a peep. I know, safety, safety, safety. But if this is the way the NFL is going to be played, I'll just end up watching less. Goodell can make his decision and I can make mine.
Agreed. I was watching a game last night in which the DL hit the QB (Brady Quinn I think) AS HE WAS THROWING IT and got called for roughing the passer.
DAD!! You're back!
Yes, but my points are not. Anyways, since I can't start a thread to ask this minor question (it's still the offseason, so I can ask stupid questions) I will here. I was at a friend's house and he made a coffee table that had random news clippings, pictures, tickets, etc under a glass top as a collage. Unfortunately, I don't have a collection of such clippings to make a table (which is going to be my next project). Does anyone know where I could get newspapers from Ann Arbor, either current or from years past? Or tickets or other memorabilia? If anyone wants to know more I could try to upload a picture of the table (it was Georgia themed).
The older A2 News archives are not online, but you can root through the hard copies at the A2 library.
On Liberty in AA has programs, tickets and such that could meet you needs for such a table.
so the assholes are comfortable in the knowledge that they will not pay the price for their assholism.
A neg-bang-armed MGoBlog society is a less irritating society.
Congrats to Hemingway. It's great to see him competing and having success in the NFL.
in recent Michigan Football History, seeing Michigan Men like Junior (and Kovacs and Denard and Martin, etc.---players who have made us and especially themselves proud despite all that was going on around them for most of their careers) get their shot and possibly succeed in the NFL really makes me feel good about their perseverence . Guys like them are living proof of that famous phrase of Bo's, "THOSE WHO STAY WILL BE CHAMPIONS!"
In the meantime, what can we do (in the absense of the voting system) to prod the mods to open the pipeline to Bolivia a bit? Between "Wolverines Dominate" and "no-ot", an otherwise perfectly good thread was trashed. As was pointed out here and on a few other threads by many of us lately, the two of them seem to have little if anything to contribute, other than smarmy negative remarks regarding thread-worthiness.
