stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
Two threads down. Didn't even have to scroll down. Why, I oughtta . . .
Also, why are my posts showing up in boldface type?
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
Nothing from Bleacher Report is worth reading.
It's all John Navarre's fault.

They no longer call me Bisbiño
Not even close. Try any Saturday when the football team loses for proof--and that doesn't count the threads we delete. Specifically, try the 2009 and 2010 seasons. Brian actually repealed free speech to slow down the traffic.
Things that happened today that are news:
(Blogger alias: "Misopogon") This team is under construction. We thank you for your patience.
Bang bang, i shot this down.
Is Meyer going to succeed? Why?
Bad idea devolves into shitshow. Video at 11.
Third time is a charm? Nah, not unless the charm is an ear necklace from 'Nam.
[Edit: Upon review, it appears as though the original "Mr. Trololo has passed away" was unpublished for some reason and the first one was about him being in a coma. Although it seems a bit superfluous since most of the discussion will be redundant from the first thread, I'm going to republish this one since its technically new news. My bad.]
Forum topic DELETE ME WITH MALICE PLS - Iowa Running Back Hating-God Strikes Again?: Greg Garmon and whacky tobacky has been deleted.
I know Bleacher Report is terrible, but...
No. No "but." You can't just preface a thread with an acknowledgement of the terribleness and then proceed with the terribleness. You don't see physicists writing papers that start "I know perpetual motion is technically impossible, but..." You don't see lawyers lead opening statements with "My client is definitely guilty, but..."
There is no "but." NO BLEACHER REPORT.
OT - The Evil of Sandusky and Others
I know, it's relevant-ish. But for now, I'm gonna pull it. The finer points of crime and punishment, and of rape and counter-rape, are not the best point of discussion for a sports blog.
Hello: posts are a bad place to be testing the boundaries of the boobage rules. They come in the middle of weekdays and folk who would save analysis for when they get home will want to instantly read up on the newest Wolverine.
Deleted a couple that I thought crossed over the line.
I've deleted a number of comments, just to de-clutter the thread. No one did anything wrong. All is well.
OT- Late Late Show bucknuts
I know it's the off-season, but "Ohio State fan flubs audience interaction on talk show" is dangerously close to the shark. No jumping the shark.
Hard and fast rule.
also OT: Buckeye Fan Grammar
Yeah, little off on that one.
I've met two MSU players who were laughably misinformed about Michigan's offense or defensive schemes (Norton thought we ran a 3-4, a tight end believed we don't use tight ends), but this was taking a quote way out of context.
Not Possible To Be More OT: And Then There Was That Time...
The tribe has spoken.
I am hot, sticky, had to throw out my favorite ice cream, and all the niceness that usually keeps me from insta-banning people who badmouth Wilcher acolytes is as gone as the people who badmouthed recruits today are now gone. Sucks to be anyone badmouthing recruits today.
Wow, that was dumb.
We relax the rules for OT: local pro teams because VERLANDER and because we're big sports fans. And we relax the rules for OT: Kate Upton because KATE UPTON (and she's a Michigan fan). However the NO CELEBRITY GOSSIP WHAT THE HELL SITE DO YOU THINK THIS IS? rule needs a stern reminder.
Feel better now?
OT: Which one is Butt and which one is Tebow?
Oh season, where art thou?
Work was tearing me up the last week of June, we went on vacation last week, and now we are frantically searching for a place to live now that we're under contract to sell our home (without having even listed it for sale!!). In other words, I've been and will probably continue to be a worthless moderator for a couple of more weeks. 1,000 lashes are in order, plus a huge negbang. Sorry I'm not pulling my weight, fellas.
(P.S. Note the new, temporary tagline . . . )
Gearing up for football season by cleaing out the mod thread. It's like two-a-days, but without the payoff on the back end.
Eliminated several PSU threads. I'm trying to keep the board from being flooded with tangential topics to today's punishment.
And the threads keep coming.
OT: Iranian nukes hacked with ACDC
So much political debate. Once again, the intersection of "things we can have" and "nice things" is the null set.

The nice things. They are but a dream.
Magnos =/= Magnus
Mgnaus =/= Magnus
Sorry to copy, Seth.
OT - Destinee Hooker
Too much RCMB. If anything, we should be making fun of Dong Dong.
Roundtree has knee surgery, out 2-weeks
We're not going to do this one.
I found it pretty ridiculous that the Chris Armstrong thread was immediately locked. That was one of the biggest stories of many's time at UM and even a significantly important one.
There's no politics. We should be able to discuss that issue as it brought out a lot of what is good at the University of Michigan - a President defending a student, students of many viewpoints standing as one, etc.
If a person or two cannot behave like adults, then deal with them - you don't have to ruin it for the rest of us.
CoE Class of 2007
But in practice, I'm with ZL on this one. I just got home, looked at the board, saw the thread title, and thought to myself, "Godwin, have mercy on us."
This topic has been discussed in the past, and has predictably produced some spirited discussion. And if this was mid-afternoon, sure, what the hell, I'd babysit the thread. But if we leave that thread unattended overnight, history tells me that we will awaken to comments like "Goddamn Kyrgyzstan had it coming" and "the gays cause unemployment."
Us : nice things :: Ahab : white whales
You hit my reasoning on the head. I left it up because it is relevant to the University, but I locked it because:
The real crime is Armstrong gets $4.5 million for having to put up with that guy for like 5 incidents. Meanwhile 4th floor Hunt House of South Quad had to put up with Shirvell for two semesters and get bupkis.
Hoke Presser: MGB Opinions?
Post already exists.
...link in this otherwise informative Bama visitor comment.
Perhaps you can edit out the link only?
LSA '89 - MBB Natl Champions, Big 10/Rose Bowl Champions | @MGoShoe
Thanks. I think we'll need to keep promoting the locked thread for another day or so until people get the idea.
Got another Ace thread. OP was a good sport, but empty threats are as useful as a GERG defensive game plan. Points return after the OSU game.
This can't go anywhere good from here:
(Most) people behaved remarkably well, but I'm out for the day, so I'm gonna pull the thread lest it implode.
Kudos on the lack of flamebait. The nice things may be, some day, within our grasp.
or check Stub Hub.
But wasn't he supposed to be monitored? On the front page he's calling someone a tool-
And while I don't love Tater or anything, he said nothing to deserve the same calling. Then he's name calling Brian-
Which I know Brian tries to never bomb someone for disagreeing with him, but it's not really showing you're feeling sorry and heeding hte warning by doing this. No regret or remorse. Do Brian the favor by bringing the ban hammer for him.
I don't say this just because I don't like what he says; everyone knows Section 1 and I butt heads every ten minutes, but I'd never (seriously) call for his ban. We all lose our cool on occasion, but there's a difference between that and zero value added. And frankly, it's kind of makes the site look worse because it shows the permissiveness AA.com allows in its posts. Other teams' trolls are annoying. our own team's trolls are embarrassing.
