I wouldn't take that bet.
further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
I wouldn't take that bet.
Our coaches don't rotate DL or anything...
I think they're projected to different positions because of their flexibilty to play other positions along the line. People have said McDowell can play strongside or move inside.
They kind of are, but we'd use one of them differently to get both of them on together, if necessary. Both are listed as SDE to most, but Hand could play WDE and McDowell could be a 3-tech. Both we versatile enough that it doesn't matter.
Make sure you beat your mundane argument to death if you post in this thread. Because good news about top prospects should always be met with that response.
titled better, but then somehow a simple suggestion to that effect elicits responses which entail much more effort than just changing it would, for the sake of contrarianism.
Had the OP changed it, the argument would have ended (as it always does).
Alright, we all get your point. You and everyone else have only made it 40 times. A better way to let an argument end is not have to get in the last word.
as I think the thread should have been titled better, it just really should have taken one comment, and not people trying to argue that the thread was titled fine, or other things that no one thought was true, all for the sake of making an argument.
That's exactly what he just said.
In that case, I agree.
I agree with your position wolvinLA2 but shut the fuck up already. You're just feeding the fucking trolls.
SON OF A B! Two posts in two days about great players, great recruits and great positioning for Michigan in their recruitments and they get ruined by inane comments about thread titles and boners.
Seriously, these past couple days on here are what makes fans of other teams call us arrogant, uppity and whatever else crap they say.
Couldn't agree more.
If you don't like it here....GTFO!
BTW, you're team is waaaaayyyy over-rated this year and I can't wait for The Game this year!
They are not going to be Michigan fans regardless of how MGoBlog reads.
Ignore it, the trolls will either grow bored or grow up. Either one will accomplish the same result.
We are simply better.
Here is your typical recruiting thread on a late weekend night at MgoBlog....
BISB back to modding. What is this world coming to?? /ignores everything posted above.
Wow, 3 comments about McDowell and the rest is everyone bitching and fighting like little school girls. unfuckingbelievable!
Same guy ruined/trolled both threads. Can we just autoban anyone with "Ghost of" in their username? Looks like there's three of them now.
I've been seeing some of the third ghost's posts disappearing, so I assume it's been taken care of.
...who is McDowell favoring?
His favorite was Ohio State, but they told him he is not a good fit for them so they are not interested.
With the verbals so far, this class is already fantastic, but I can't wait to see what it looks like when it's filled up. McDowell would definitely be an incredible addition.
This thread kind of makes me want to delete my account and never come back. Miraculously, it somehow manages to be worse than the Fournette thread of last night.
Can't we stop trolling each other? Can't we stop trying to get the last shitty meaningless word in? We're fans of the same team. It's time some people grow up and act like adults
We need an MGoBradyHoke to join and reunite our fractured fanbase.
Here you are at 1:00 am, 2 pages deep into a post going nowhere and complaining.
Ok, now that you have gotten your last word in we can all go to bed.
A high school classmate of mine (Hokie fan), mentioned the Da'Shawn Hand/Michael Jackson recruiting fiasco, his hope was the unnamed coach was Brady Hoke. I think Hokie fans are getting a little uneasy about the Maize and Blue recruiting juggernaut.
TheGhostofBISB should be showing up here soon.
TheGhostofBDoublePost should be showing up here again soon.
the fallout in the that thread would result in everyone being sent to Bolivia except for Brian. Mods included
It's hard to mess up the title in a "Hello" post
Rivals is also saying he may be bumping up to 5-star when all is said and done.
Re: thread meltdown...
Here's the deal.
1. It's the off-season, so off-topic threads should get a little more lee-way. (Not that this is off-topic;I'm just building to a few points).
2. Recruits moving around their rankings of suitors is fair game for threads, even if it is a bit weird in the obsessiveness of following the whims of 17 year olds.
3. We should all be able to post about this topic without losing our composure about stupid crap. We are (mostly) adults, and need to be a bit more tolerant around here.
4. Mods do tough work and we appreciate their time and efforts.
5. It would be good for mods to come down hard on people who break protocol on this blog, who show a total lack of respect to others (including recruits, not to mention others posting here), and those who can't help but offend everyone. It takes vigilance to not devolve into an Mlive environment.
6. We all need to remember that recruits and their family and their friends are reading this. Lets show a little decency.
7. Not every single good recruit is going to come here. That's fine. Lets wish them well. Any interest they showed in Michigan reflects well on the program, even if they do end up somewhere else.
I know this is OT in a "bad thread titles" thread, but has anybody heard any updates on McDowell? I'm interested in hearing about him since it's been a while. I'm curious because of all of this positive recruiting news we've been having lately. Again, sorry for being off-topic from this stupid fucking argument with idiots about thread titles.
A mod should just delete this thread and create a new thread re; the McDowell article.
Then we can discuss if McDowell has the quicks for a SDE, if he's too tall to be a 3-tech, is he going to grow himself into a project OT because there aren't many 6'7" interior offensive/defensive lineman around.
This kind of crap ruins MgoBlog. 160 comments about how the thread title does or does not suck. You losers need to get a life.
2nd time in 2 days that i've been reading comments and stumbled upon A.) an argument that never had to be an argument in the first place B.) someone mentioning male genitalia. What is happening here?
The lack of football is obviously taking a toll on everyone
MLive posters now tell shitty posters to come here. It's a damn shame.
Doesn't matter whether we're in season or off-season—every day, and sometimes multiple times per day, there is a loud, nasty-sounding squabble between two or more pack members. Generally the fisticuffs end without any real injury, but occasionally a pack member is bloodied and banished by the alpha members of the pack.
Most of the banished take their punishment and eventually return, chastened, but a few of them furtively attempt to worm their way back in by wearing the rotting carcass of the sheep that was killed last week.
Occasionally the alpha members are distracted by wives and offspring and allow things to get out of hand, which is where the pack is today. There needs to be a renewed commitment to discipline and order within the pack, with swift, merciless punishment meted out to those who abuse pack rules.
You should write for NatGeo.
Getting paid to blather in print about animals would be a sweet gig.
This thread reminds me why I stopped swimming in the sewage that is now the MGBoard. Its good to get a reminder every once and a while. I am off to take a shower and clean off the stench.
Isn't this a little like the Jordan Diamond situation? Where he was all Blue all the way up till almost signing day then he picked Auburn. From what I heard Malik loves us like Diamond did yet he also hasn't committed yet. Im a little worried about this.
There was a time when Notre Dame seemed to be the leader. I think he's truly undecided. If Michigan's going to hold a spot for him, he might as well try to take visits to USC, Florida, etc.
