Moving on to be a doctor?
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Moving on to be a doctor?
Yeah...but that seems more like a downward spiral. I mean, a doctor? Pfffft. What's he gonna do with that?
seems like the Big 10 has a need for bloggers/doctors who can be on the sidelines with coaches like Jerry Kill, Urbz, and Dantonio.
I'm all for inappropriate jokes, but I'm not sure that one was done very well or well timed...
not sure why you got your panties in a bunch over a factual comment about the health of some of the coaches in the Big 10, you make it sound like I just killed a litter of kittens. boring and proper to the end, huh? you must be the life of the party
...and criticizing the joker's comedic timing/delivery. I was doing the latter.
"...a factual comment about the health of some of the coaches in the Big 10"
That right there is what made it feel uncomfortable. It was coming off as just a factual, humorless, emotionless statement. Ben Stein's dry, monotous voice is what I heard in my head when reading your coment, so speaking of "life of the party," learn to spruce it up a little bit so it doesn't come off so awkward next time.
Al was fired anyway. No need for bubble screen questions any more.
yeah he might as well become a doctor since our new OC may call bubble screens from time to time...
For real. All those "doctor smarts" may be hot stuff in a hospital, but what's it ever gonna be used for out there in the real world?
Isn't Heiko a Mudphud? (MD-PhD). After med school he get's to be paid <$10/hr for 3-7 years, followed by doubling-quintipling his pay.
Just wait until he invents a new procedure. We'll see if you think it's a downward spiral when you eventually need a Bubble Screen surgery done.
I haven't seen him write about something in like 2 years but Ronald Bellamy's underachieving all-starts blog had a couple of the best blog write ups ever. His recap about Denard in 2010 was fantastic, and his UTL 1 game recap was one of the best things I've ever read on the interwebz. Wish he would come back and write some more stuff
He sometimes, pretty rarely, writes stuff for Vice.
Every year I bug Johnny to write for HTTV, every year he agrees then never sends me anything. We're facebook friends but his posts on there are all depressing. Half of the people who read his stuff loved it, the other half hated it, and he isn't the kind of guy who can take half his comments being negative.
His writing is amazing. He captured my feelings 100%. I miss that guy :(
If you can get 50% of people to love you and 50% to hate you that is golden. Most people can't get 20% of people to even care what you think. If you can get a large % of people to have an opinion on what you are saying, positive OR negative, you are set. Why do you think so many negative all the time guys like Sharp exist?
That's a bummer. He is excellent. It's always seemed like he's a tortured guy, or at least that was something I'd always thought. Also, I think his deep emotions have something to do with why his stuff is so great...like a lot of great writers and artists, really.
Has Brian's blogging tree expanded far enough? Does his system produce future Head Bloggers, or just a bunch of Assistant Bloggers and the occasional Blogger Coordinators?
A couple guys seem to be doing pretty well for themselves.
Maybe he should change his name to Brian Parcells.
But only after a few public racial epithets.
I'm definitely of the mind that we need to hire an outsider when Brian retires. Hiring another guy from the hippie hair/hockey jersey/Muppet-posting/U.S. soccer team fetish mold is just going to be a disaster. Other blogs will pass us by.
I disagree. I think Brian's future son, Denard Rodriguez Cook, will do a fine job with the blog.
Brian's son, Everett Golson Puppet Cook is already an accomplished writer for the Michigan Daily and has a bright future ahead of him.
I'll believe the practice hype on that guy when he brings it on Wednesdays and Thursdays in the fall.
Where do you think RDT will end up?
My guess would be shot dead by a fellow Bama fan for not being happy enough that Lane is OC
His blog closed due to difficulty in long distance relationship-
IIRC, Tom VH was just an ordinary poster at first, before being drafted into service by Brian. He was sort of the Jordan Kovacs of the blogosphere.
Tom got his start by monitoring Anthony Fera's Facebook wall and noticing he switched his background from Michigan to Penn State, if I recall correctly.
I just realized reading this that I've been at this site and posting for over 5 years. And in that time, I have not seen one bit of the beveled guilt that Brian speaks of. I'm starting to think that this "internship" isn't all it's cracked up to be.
I've been the Ohio high school football reporter for the London Evening Standard since 2003. My report "Whither is bound the Massillon side?" won an award in 2005.
I'm rather interested in the career path of LSA2000
I started as a regular poster (as opposed to a lurker / reader) during The Search in 2011 rose through the ranks from "some guy" to "some guy who can edit / delete content", a post which I have held here since March of 2013. In real life, I began at my company as a distribution designer and now supervise people who do that work, so it is sort of a similar path - "some guy" to "some guy who can edit / delete content", except different content.
Man, no mention of me going from popular diarist to the JCB. Thanks for nothing, guys......
Well, the OP asked for additions...so I think you just added yourself.
I used to love his MSPaint-fueled diary series.
BlueSeoul now goes by the handle ttfiblog.
Ace was TheWolverineBlog; once he was gone they didn't keep it up and it fizzled away. Ace's first blog was Ace of Sports. http://aceofsports.blogspot.com/. He also went to work for TheWolverine for a short time.
Baumgardner is now AA.com/Mlive's michigan guy; Meinke covers the Lions.
He stopped blogging once real life started to interfere with his blogging.
I do remeber the blog well though because it's what vectored me to MGoBlog.
He really did cover recruiting well, but I don't think he had any original content, if I remember correctly.
I didn't know that blog existed for a long time, but then for whatever reason, it started funneling a lot of traffic to Touch the Banner. I don't think he ever linked to me; there was just a blog roll in the sidebar. Either way, he must have had a decent amount of traffic.
A fake blogger, but Kyle Meinke is now a fake blogger for mlive with the Lions. You could talk about where all the Michigan Daily writers have gone -- USA Today, ESPN, NYT, Pitt PG, Dallas MN, etc
What about the other Brian from Genuinely Sarcastic? Amazing writer; I know he went through a tough period a while back. Wish he was still writing weekly.
I was just going to bring him up. He was off the Rodriguez wagon a little sooner that I felt was warranted, but he was a really good writer. I hope he's ok.
TOB is a frequent, or was since I haven't been on there as much, poster on 247 Wolverine.
i think he goes by EFWolverine in the lesser known but similarly named umgoblog, where he is a frequent poster and handles recruiting.
Looks like there's a recent post. It's a bit of a downer.
I always enoyed his Reqiuem pieces. Gave great in depth thoughts on Michigan athletes that were so important to the program.
