I think a John Lennon / Yoko Ono style pic with Brian and your interviewee would really help us get a feel for who they really are. Make it so.
MGoProfile to Return This Week
If not, we're proud to announce that the MGoProfile feature will return this week, on Friday, to be exact.
From there we'll try to run one of these at least every two weeks for the rest of the offseason. I say "we" because the talented M-Wolverine is slated to join the cause of providing a unique glimpse at some of the standout members of MGoBlog.
Again, look for the feature to return Friday, June21!
Odds on the identity of the next MGoProfile subject
2:1 - Ace
3:1 - Heiko
5:1 - justingoblue
12:1 - Facepalm Guy
15:1 - Rapture Guy
50:1 - GhostofFebert
125:1 - RollDamnTide
500:1 - Greg Mattison
2,000,000:1 - saveferris
If we get to vote I want to hear from Face palm guy and Rapture guy in that order.
2) pay a small bribe to the corrupt, authoritarian MGoBlog Illuminati
3) . . .
4) Become dictator of an insolvent -- former -- democracy (f/k/a "profit")
The Hall of Fame needs updating, because Ace and Heiko's MGoProfiles are not there.
Because no one is sure if there's even going to be a Hall of Fame after the site revamp.
I always though there would be an MGoProfile made on him because he seemed pretty interesting. But then I realized he is also kind of a d-ck so good riddance to him.
Hmm, i'm glad that i'm not the only one to find him a little overly pompous
I wish there was a "hilarious" moderation option for this comment.
I figured avoiding MGoProfiles went along with putting away your mod Batsuit and stealing away overseas with Selina Kyle to live out your remaining days in anonymity.
Though if you're taking bets, I'll put some down on saveferris...have to like those odds.
Edit: Six Zero informs me he's already been profiled. Guess I should re-read it.
Already done. Of course back when he was profiled, he went by the more pretentious "Blue in South Bend" handle.
Creating a name like "Blue in South Bend", or creating "BiSB", the acronym of a pretentious name like "Blue in South Bend".
(I kid, I kid ...)
I am in no way related to this "Blue in South Bend." I simply appeared at the same time he vanished. This was merely a coincidence.
Nothing to see here, FBI Agents who are searching for the OTHER Blue in South Bend...
"It wasn't his idea, it was mine..."
I am so excite :D
These were always interesting. Strange how some people actually have lives outside of Michigan fandom.
Ionlypostwithgifs or what ever his name was wasn't still active. His responses to questions would have been very interesting.
Oh wait...never mind. I'm boring. Nothing to see here.
Make it happen.
would take at least 6 weeks, because he is so many different people. You can't just profile RDT in one story.
He already interviewed himself.
One of my favorite features on the site returns, glad it's back. Really looking forward to them, SixZero.
Looking back at past MGoProfiles, it's sort of interesting to see how many guys who were "worthy" of them don't post here much anymore. TomVH, Formerly Anonymous, jamiemac, etc.
My theory on that is that MGoBlog started as a way for a nuanced section of Michigan fans to talk about the sports programs. Now that MGoBlog is so big, there has been an influx of the O$U and Ped State crowds. The intellectual side to the site is being replaced by "Ow My Balls!"
Besides the fact that literally no Penn State fans post here, basically spot on. You nailed it. There's also been an influx of the crowds who use stupid, overused nicknames for our rivals, can't forget those jackasses.
I think those jackasses are who he's referring to with O$U, Ped State, etc.
You hit the nail on the head. I actually enjoy engaging with fans from other fanbases, RDT excluded. I meant that the people here who declare their rigidity towards recruits, call other teams and fanbases by derogotory names, and add nothing but snark to the threads are what is hurting the boards. I just worded it poorly.
I think that the cutesy snark on here has kind of reached critical mass. I'm guilty of it too, but the board is kind of drifting towards being a caricature of itself. I'm of the opinion that tl;dr is in exact contrast to what the boards were supposed to be, but there is a lot of saccharine out there nowadays...
....you, as well as those giving you a thumbs up, skim 1484's comment and over look what is really quite obvious if you take the time to think about it.... sort of proving 1484's point.
Slow your roll.
There is very little funnier than this:
and I still think we're vastly more sophisticated here than almost any other sports blog out there. There's been more guys here who say things like "LOL...Urban Crier. Jk. O$$U!" but they still get negged constantly. Beating a dead horse, but if the old system came back, that kind of comment/poster would be quickly eliminated
Of former mods disappearing...
I'm still around. They still invite me onto the podcasts. I lurk a lot. There was a 3-4 year stretch (beginning in the halo scan days) where I posted every day, as often as I could. It's worn off. I'm a little bored with the MGoForum these days. That said, I am more than disappointed in my diary output the last couple of seasons. I want to get back into that
you mean you have no opinion on video games, tips on moving or spartan recruiting?
If we get a vote then I nominate myself. I can even make up stuff so that I seem interesting.
but I nominate MGoShoe.
thanks anyhow. I thought this quote from the profile on MGoShoe was interesting, given that it was done in 2010 under the old points regime:
"The MGoPoints system isn’t perfect, but its obvious effect on minimizing trolls and jerky behavior in general is greatly appreciated. I doubt I’d be here without it because I’m not interested in participating in forums chock full of douchery."
but my lawn is the best-trimmed bunch of weeds and crabgrass in A2.
Everyone should go back and read these. It makes it a lot harder to be an a--hole here to people that you know more about. Also, check out the people who commented on the profiles . . . They are the "who's who" of MGoBlog.
that our Don is the same Don that is a regular caller to Sam and Ira. I don't think their Don is nearly as ornery as ours. NTTAWT.
who's even more ignorant about sports than I am.
However, getting profiled on here would be a surefire sign that I have made it in this world. Contrary to getting the degree and it making me feel that way.
Always found these interesting. I take it you have to go through Brian to snag their emails and then hope they respond? Or is there some super secret private messaging system on here we plebians don't know about?
Theon may have killed all the birds up in Winterfell, but Brian's got a boatload of 'em. Which is impressive with all the kittens.
Ravens beat the heck out of receiving a, uh, package from Theon these days.
If you must send a Raven, please make it the kicker as he's the only one that I both outweigh and outheight. If you send Haloti Ngata I might jump out a window to get away.
Peasant need not hear details of such things.
Just a few people that can see the email addresses used for registration (Brian included, obviously). No idea what SixZero did in the past, but between him and M-Wolverine they can find the help they need without much difficulty.
If you do more than 3 more of these, we're going to have to hear about WolvinLA's race-based doctor selection practices or Section1's hatred of Title IX. No thanks.
WolvinLA2 has, and it didn't include anything of the sort. But yeah, I think there's still a few people I'd be interested in reading about.
and it's worth a slow clap, as usual.
You can hate UM sports all you want, but to most people, a UM degree means your a pretty sharp individual.
His a pretty sharp individual, indeed.
You're not volunteering...?
It's still my contention he's about 30 years old.
I'd take under.
I will also take the under. As a matter of fact I'd bet that Herm is actually just another manifestation of the WIAB, RDT and the hot chick who just happens to like Michigan (forgot that one's name it came and went so quickly).
Just like WIAB was all about his kids & recruiting, RDT was all about Alabama and the hot chick was....well.....lets just say she knew too much about recruiting to be a real hot chick, Herm sounds like someone who is young thinks old people talk like.
I should know. I AM old.
I'm pretty sure Herm is Chop Block. Or vice versa.
Damn you're right! I knew he was a persona of someone else and not an old guy as advertised. He still might be RDT, WIAB and the random recruiting-loving hot chick however.
I honestly dont get the multiple screen name thing at all. It seems like a lot of work to create a person and then have to remember what that person is like when answering. And posting on a blog should be anything BUT work to me.
I'll throw my name in the hat if you're taking names of people looking to be interviewed. My publicist said I should go out of my way to quash the "rumors" about alleged hooker murders. I mean, I never allegedly murdered five hookers! Why do you people continue to allege that I did? Just because I look like I did does not mean I'm guilty. Sure, I've allegedly been known to allegedly spend time with alleged prostitutes. And some have allegedly disappeared allegedly. So what? Allegedly.
Right after Terrelle Pryor.
I assumed this was because of my recent suggestion. I guess not?
