I've been doing alot of soul searching the past 3 years. I was not a fan of the Rich Rod hire from the beginning, and it got me to thinking about the new lights. Bo Schembechler and Lloyd Carr didn't need to play under the lights to win big10 championships...just another gimmick in Rich Frauds arsenal.
A look back in order to look forward (The Big House lights)
This will not end well.
and yet the OP gets what he deserves...
As it shouldn't. This is one of the most mind-numbingly moronic things I have seen on this board.
There are plenty of legitimate criticisms of the Rich Rod led program. The installation of lights is surely not one of them. Good God, man. Get ahold of yourself.
Not a licenced electrical contractor. Just one more knock against him.
Soul searching? Easy bud, it's just a game.
I just threw out my last bag of diseased cocks. Coulda saved you a trip to the diseased cocks store.
First time in a while I have literally laughed out loud from something I read. High five to you sir.
your signature might need a good ol' update.
Byron plox lift the neg cost for those over [random number that is high but still less than mine] because I still hesitate... eh fuck it, this guy needs it
should never prevent you from negging someone who totally deserves it. As was pointed out above, however, this creature is an rcmb troll. In his car, I would wait for a ban to come down.
We did it earlier guys; destroy this man.
You are really dumb. For real.
and if you don't it's you

You move me.
Cool story, bro.
Yes, RR is completely responsible for lights being added to The Big House......................(sigh)
Ha! For a second I thought you were serious.
is really cool, man. Keep it up.
He needs lights to counteract the BIG 10 WEATHER because 4 wide receiver sets don't work in BIG 10 WEATHER. They only play well under false lighting.
I think it should be 575.
You're right! Man, if all of your introspection came up with this brilliant conclusion, I agree.
It's not like Canham would have done everything in his power to promote the Michigan brand, and the night game and Alabama game are prime examples of Dave Brandon doing that.
Man that is some wicked facial/neck muscle contractions, I see Barwiss is doing some fine work.
PS: Are we sure that RR has his Electricians papers? I'd hate to see those new boxes burn down..
this is a non-informative title. MODS!!!
You sir, are an idiot.
This HAS to be flame...
this for realz?
The 3-3-5 and the spread offense can only successfully co-exist in a artificially lit environment. It totally makes sense. Can't wait for that ND game to see them gel. I still cannot wrap my head around why RR wanted to change our mascot to the Bald Eagle. Any insight?
that I do not like brussel sprouts.
What happened to all my points?
Sold them on Ebay. Sorry.
You made a dumbass post so you're getting negged to "Bolivian." Won't be long until you are in the negatives.
Now go get me a tube of OxyClean. And a Magic Jack!!
remember what post "negged to Bolivian" was from... but I think I love you for referencing that
I just remember it was awesome.
You guys just made me go back through a bunch of posts and look for it.... I spent 2 hours on here reading old threads and I have a 15 page paper dues Wednesday... But if you guys find it, I would love to read that elusive thread...
No no no. Please I don't want a fight. Or to be negged into Bolivian.
that's more like an hour, but I gotcha. Haha
and though this isnt a reply to OMGShirtless, I don't want to post twice, so thank you for finding that señor
It originally comes from the bard himself, Mike Tyson.
I hate you.
I heart MGoBoard
posbanged everyone because I want to make sure no one has to pay to neg this nerf herder (oh yes I did)
I posbanged all of you too. Oh yeah, and beat tOSU!
I'm pretty sure this has to be intentional. I mean Rich Fraud? If that's your actual insult, I'm not sure what to think... it just has nothing to do with the situation... like if you call him Rich Arson or something (except rhyming, im not in a creative mood).
[EDIT]: coulda sworn I hit reply on that post above me
posbanged everyone because I want to make sure no one has to pay to neg this scruffy lookin' nerf herder (oh yes I did)
thank you sir
I should have posted before letting my NEGative attitude get the best of me.
the logic here. Ed.: Bump to front page?
the lights will lead us to the promise land
to what, a look back to the last crappy forum topic? Dude seriously, are you one of us or some Buckeye interloper pretending to be one of us?
No, I've been a season ticket holder off and on for the past 30 years. I want to be able to watch the games during the day and dont want this to turn into WVU.
NEWSFLASH: Rodriguez didn't buy the lights. David Brandon did.
sure you aren't just covering for a insane fear of the dark?
Michigan ------> WVU =? Are we going to load up the school and all the sports teams and move em all down to West Fuckin Virginia and merge with WVU thereby turning us into WVU?
obviously WVU is the only place to put lights on their stadium. duh.
But it makes sense why it's bad... our coastline with oh*o would be a lot longer. Plus Pennsylvania too? yeah now I see the point of this whole thing. (/s)
seriously though, we need to stop with the WVU hate. Where is the link to that post that basically tells everyone who brings up WVU to go get fucked? (Yost. That's all you need to say.)
If you don't hit Big Boy by 4:00, the salad bar is all picked over.
I bet you all my points that I can guess which of the past 30 seasons you were a ticket holder.
i had to log in, just to laugh at nerf herder. Epic.
Rich Rod took your points and put them up with the lights.
It's ok, we all do stupid things sometimes. Consider this your mulligan.
Actually, I take that back. Just don't post here again.
in three years of soul searching THIS is what youve come up with?
Derek Dooley!!!!! Wow, wow, wow. Rockytop! Wow
Sorta like another dude...
Thought you might like that one. Pulled it out the hat; and it did not disappoint. Well, didn't disappoint me at least.
have a mighty fine hat. That was priceless. Went immediately to facebook nation to share to the world what you have shared to us here in MGoblog world.
those lights run on dilithium by the way
The community has successfully self-policed two idiots today. Congratulations folks. MgoBoard is now a smarter place thanks to participation of its members in their civic duties.
"ive been a season ticket holder on and off for the past 30 years"
How does one do that given there's a waiting list for tickets? I call bullshit.
to make you call bullshit? I mean, everything else in the post doesn't give it away?
Everybody else seemed to have his initial insanity covered. I was covering his later work to give the rest of the board a short break.
"ive been a season ticket holder on and off for the past 30 years"
It was such bullshit my ipad doubleposted it out of disgust.
I may not now that, but that only makes me half as ignorant as the OP
an msu board that is prone to trolls and amazing reporting
Everyone knows the spread doesn't work in the cold! DB and RR are tossing heating bulbs in those lights so he can recreate those balmy West Virginia winters.
because I as a student am excited we caught up to everyone else in the country with lights, and the lights arent held up by ugly poles either. Maybe this can bring some spice to some rivalries....cant wait for the first Michigan-OSU night game personally. And maybe that can get College Gameday up here every once in a while. And hell now that RR has his recruits falling into place anything is possible
-On another note, when Dee Hart committed we got a big win over Illinois that week. So heres to hoping that Justice Hayes' does the same
-and also I dont know about any of you, but just thinking about seeing Frost, Hart, Crawford,Watkins/Lucien,Zettel, and any other big recruits, along with a more experienced team, on the field against ND at night next year gives me the chills
A couple points of clarification:
The B10 has a rule against November night games, so unless they move The Game, it couldn't be at night (maybe 3:30 though).
Dee Hart committed before the MSU game, so I'm not hoping for the sam results.
Sammy Watkins committed to Clemson this week.
thanks for the correction on the Dee Hart commitment coming before the MSU game....and well from what I've heard throughout the expansion of the Big 10, they have talked about moving the game to earlier in the season. I know this would take so much out of the game itself and I would hate to see it, but hey a night game in late November would include a 3:30 start if you think about it
I want my five seconds back. Douchebag.
I have seen some big numbers before, not sure who has held that distinction
I'm sure that in one of those 30 years you might have noticed that they had to rent lights anyway for many of the 3:30 games.
omg wait, I see where you're coming from now. It's tradition to put up rentals! Dog gamn you in-house electricity!
Lights will increase our carbon footprint and increase global warming and we are all going to die because of the lights! FIRE RICH ROD NOW TO SAVE EARTH!

I have read this 3 times and I still dont know how RR and the lights are connected. ::shrugs shoulders::
