I hope there's not a 4th at bat.
I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
I hope there's not a 4th at bat.
So double post.
Well, it'll all get deleted later.
but can any of the mods explain why there has been no moderator action on these posts (among others on this thread)?
Many users have faced point reductions affecting their ability to edit any of the "trusted user" topics, post diaries and MGoBoard posts, ect. or faced a ban on commenting for using the same type of "cute nicknames" Brian warns against in his Official MGoBlog Pet Peeve List. I'm wondering why a user is allowed to say "Walverines" twice in a comment, post modified quotes about the 1968 Democratic Convention or gay marriage and not have any repercussions on the board. I'm trying not to get into my opinion on the topic, but can I have a black and white ruling on what posts/nicknames are okay and which aren't?
Not even Tommy Bahama is sacred? IS THERE NO GOD?
Sorry for the miss; had I noticed, I would have stepped in. A little late to do anything now, but thanks for bring it to tha attention of the staff. Ah, Section 1...
Trash talking commence: Let's get some rival jokes going!
Breaking news: players at big-time football schools can get laid a lot.
Thank goodness it's game week.

Redundant thread is redundant.
OT - Name My Son
1) Congratulations, and good luck. I'm expecting my first in November. Well, my wife is. I'm expecting her to deliver a child, though, so I suppose I'm expecting.
2) No OT from this point on
3) Not sure about the first name, but Fergodsakes is a damn fine middle name.
Removing that thread was outrageous. That family is screwed now. I doubt the child will even have a name -- he'll probably just turn into some kind of sociology experiment where we see what happens when a human being has no natural way to refer to himself.
Plus, selfishly, I was really hoping that he'd go for my suggestion of [first name: "Turd"] [middle name: "named after Turd Ferguson"] [last name: "Ferguson"].
Can't we just refer to him with an expression of emotion?
"Meet my son, "
Sharp is a TOOL-
OT- Where to watch saturday's game in Miami
Watching games in Uptown, Dallas
Some questions are best left to the Google.
Not OT because wolverines are awesome.
Much like saying "I'm a virgin because it doesn't count if he has a tiny penis," just because you say it doesn't mean the rest of us have to agree.
Derrick Green set to announce in Oct???
Old news, already posted
Something about dirty Penn State joke t-shirts.
Also, searching for a bar in D.C. -- try the Michigan Bar Locator under the MGoBoard tab! There are several suggestions!
Also, The Song "I Love You Den....EDIT: Who is ISMELLSEXY?
Also, Alabama Recruiting Tool.
Yet another poster for the stockades. Neg-bombed for the 2012 season; points return in 2013.
User said he searched but I tried every conceivable combination of things you might search for with this story and each time the board notice comes up.
Situation was resolved.
Alabama doesn't oversign thread.
I already told you not to play that game here Prevatt.
Psh, y'all mods are just a buncha gotdamn Nazis.
so fast...no one gets the /s here because they can't see prevatt's comments calling everyone nazis.
You know who else complains about the Mod thread?
Keeping the mod thread clean is cool, and it's what's supposed to be done. I just didn't want all the people negging the poor guy to think he was just pulling that out himself. (Reference, yo!)
You should know I hate those guys....
But who can resist a free shot in the Godwins?
I read the initial article and I agree with ZL: there was no new information here. His gist was "LOIs are not scholarships" and that "it's different in the South" because many of the kids who sign LOIs don't end up making it to Bama. He vastly overstated the number of non-qualifiers and those who get drafted to play baseball the following spring to make his point, and failed to address the key points of dramatic medical hardship over-use, very high transfer attrition from the bottom of the depth chart, or the big kahuna: that it creates a situation where the coach HAS to have 15 or so guys "choose baseball" every year, etc., therefore creating a situation where the coach isn't acting in his players' best interests.
From a more established poster, okay, I might let this slide as discussion, however this user has been beating this particular drum before, and is far more interested in having his say than having a discussion.
Considering that and his reaction (an all-caps board post that broke not-Godwin's Law), this is a pretty clear-cut banhammer. If other Bama fans want to come here and have an open debate on the topic of oversigning, that is very welcome. This particular user is not.
A while back, he was complaining about being downvoted in the Mod Action Thread and I specifically told him not to try and win an oversigning argument here. At best, that thread would have dissolved into everyone on the board ganging up on him and him writing increasingly angry posts. Personally, I didn't care about the rationale (although it was pretty pathetic).
Strangely enough, he got more slack than I would probably have given a Michigan fan. I want the opposite opinion here and really like the commentary of some of the OSU, ND, and MSU posters.
He called us Nazis a couple of times already. I don't know if we would put up with that level of shit from a long time member/Michigan fan. For a short-timer who will probably be gone in a week anyway, drop the hammer with great anger.
FYI - I'm back in action. Commence drop in work productivity!
I miss you offseason.
"When the Angry MGoMod Hating Gods wish to punish us, they answer our prayers."
Is now front page information. No offense - just trying to keep the Board as clean as possible since there will likely be a bunch of new threads today.
Pete, meet Repeat.
If you can go to -2 karma in an hour, it's a mercy killing. Plus he's probably just a Spartan pretending to be a Michigan fan because he's bent out of shape that he's seen his betters.
I gave him the benefit of doubt as to his intentions. Fool me once, shame on me, though . . .
See http://mgoblog.com/content/guide-ann-arbor-eating-drinking (Brian obviously spent a lot of time on this).
Also, if it makes sense to put something like "I've looked at all the other threads on the subject but wanted to know other people's opinions" in your thread then its probably best not to post.
No reason to reward this idiot by giving him MGoExposure for a telephone call that makes Michigan fans look like a--holes. MLive does NOT live here.
Already on the front page in brian's article.
I googled the URL and thought I was safe when I didn't see anything. Sorry about that
No Drew Sharp.
Trying to de-clutter
I was just coming to ask why he's STILL not banned.
You're not my real dad.
He's gone, but for future reference (not just you, but everyone), if we are aware of a situation, continuously bringing it to our attention is not particularly helpful.
And when one gets the "you are THIS close to being banned" message, and he ignores it...again...and again...it's hard to tell if anyone is aware (I don't think anyone expects the mods to read every single post on the blog. Even I don't do that). And the previous poster saw that he was still posting today. So the wheels, they kind grind slow at times.
Well, that didn't last long.
Listen, I want to apologize to you all. It was never my intent to be labelled a troll, but in coming to enemy territory I guess its the nature of the business.
I like college football a lot. I like coming here because some of your posters are the most intelligent football people around and some others are pretty damn funny.
As the "enemy" I didn't think you would mind some good natured ribbing, I can take it. I have been for 20 years. Clearly I was incorrect on this assumption. Perhaps even a little debate, IE Kelly's Discipline vs Hoke's Discipline, perhaps not.
Clearly all you want is the world through maize colored glasses and thats fine. I'll sit and lurk and read. But I just wanted to clear the air a bit and let you know where I am coming from.
PS: As for the rumours of being an old Freep troll handle, there is no substance to that. Also I wasn't banned from Irish Envy, I gave up dealing with some of the idiots over there who cannot process reality. I still lurk there.
Good luck in 2 weeks.
