stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
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
Timeout for a month.
Also, Jay Cutler thread.
It's all John Navarre's fault.
Now we know the worst of it.
Also, a couple cool story bro threads.
Also, two identical threads about damefan. Seriously, the second one earned OP a two month timeout.
Denard Robinson is a great player, but a horrendous quaterback
Yeah, you won't be starting any more threads this season.
They no longer call me Bisbiño
Hey look man....
User Bolivianed. May or may not receive banhammer.
How about the the UFC threads? OT and stupid.
life is like a box of chocolates... and you got the Whizzo Quality Assortment
Michigan is Like Romney's Campaign
Things will get out of control. They will get out of control, and we'll be lucky to live through it.
Abort, Retry, Fail?
Calling out the KNOWLEDGE
THE KNOWLEDGE was wrong about the facts
But you cannot comprehend the deeper meaning
All shall be revealed. In the meantime, I have pulled the thread.
In response to this thread you unpublised, I propose a new MGoRule:
No starting threads that are intended to single out and denegrate a fellow MGoMember. 99% of the time they are not fun and are not funny.
Disgruntled former moderator. I got a lot of problems with you people!
Is THE_KNOWLEDGE a mere member? Or could THE_KNOWLEDGE be more? Perhaps s/he's an aggregate of our collective consciousness. Perhaps s/he's the embodiment of Michigan Arrogance. But I think that the most likely reason of all may have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
"The straightest line from A to B is straight: From A to B"
"When you have Denard Robinson, you can have everything"
We don't need a new thread for every sh-tty article that is written about Denard or the loss to ND. Plus, no one cares about what Joe Cowley has to say anyway.
OT-ESPN Building a Story
Is Li'l Bro the lowest of the low?
The tribe has spoken.
Happy to see 100 comments from people sharing information about head trauma or otherwise expressing concern for the kid. The two assholes who said screw him got insta-bans--anyone else who does so gets the same.
(Blogger alias: "Misopogon") This team is under construction. We thank you for your patience.
And a Section 1 self-edit to seeing if it really was an insta-ban.

No OT. Not until mid-January.
I don't really care, but what's up with the Indiana Rushing thread being allowed to stay? It's not a recruit or a target, and it isn't local either. Just wondering why that one is allowed to stay up
If you're doing nothing, how do you know when you're finished?
StraightDave owes me a steak dinner
I must have missed it.
OT - MSU Calc Prof loses it, strips naked and is arrested at school
Crazy-ass story, but too OT.
Do as you will.
OT: MSU professor has nervous breakdown, strips naked and shouts obscenities at students
Come on people. I know it's Sparty, and we love to laugh at Sparty, but this is a guy having a mental breakdown. He's a non-combatant in the Big Brother/Little Brother Wars. I know what I'm asking is unlikely, but try to be human for two seconds.
in the thread I started tonight (OT: New songs for the MMB) -when I open the thread in my browswer (Chrome) I cannot see any of the replies the post has generated. I have tried rebooting my PC and clearing my browser history and cache of all stuff like cookies, and still it doesnt work. It does let me see the replies in the Droid app on my phone, but not in Chrome. I'm not sure why that happened or if there is anything you can do.
It might've occurred because I edited my initial comment on the post (I had panicked that the embed failed when it didnt, and then edited my comment on the post after realizing the embed had actually worked).
If this is something you guys can fix, awesome. Otherwise, I'll just have to deal with it, having broken the thread for my viewing somehow.

I'll try deleting it. You can repost if you'd like. It's not working for me on Chrome or Safari.
I think you can pull the content from your post by searching your browsing history.
I'll go repost now, and this time I wont jump right back in to edit it immediately after hitting save.
I hope you got your answer while the thread was up. For future reference, in performing your site search, use "where to watch" instead of "Toledo." That might have been what went wrong.
Can we change the Shane Morris thread title please?
Un-published the post—if another mod wants to deal with it further, please do. I'm going to bed.

Still on the front page. Timeout for a month.
i humbly request for a banhammer
Ruling: let it stand.
We ban people here for trolling and flaming so that the boards don't become conspiracy theorists and firebrand politicos calling each other Hitler, but not for simple bad taste. When deciding between the two I look for 1) intent, and 2) effect, set against our goal of allowing the broadest possible free speech. For intent, the user here wasn't trying to get people to start screaming at him about WTC humor, but making a suggestion about a well-known internet meme. For effect, it got a few downvotes and ticked one guy off enough to reply there and post it here. Eh.
Jokes that make fun of 9-11 victims etc. are in bad taste but WTC guy wasn't actually killed--he's a dude who photoshopped himself to look like a tourist standing on the roof when the plane was about to hit. The joke is about inappropriateness, and it's a well-hooved internet meme, albeit one I don't find particularly funny.
I don't like his post either, however not liking something is not enough reason to ban somebody.
MSU women's basketball getting 2 secondary violations three days ago isn't big stuff. Cardale Jones was on the blog last week though I think we failed to front-page it.
So women's sports aren't board-worthy? And they called ME sexist...
Abort! Abort! Mission aborted.
Did you pull it because it was aborted or would you have pulled it anyway?
because you feared people making abortion comments?
I think you should have left it up. I know it's not OT season and all, but I never would have known this was happening if the OP hadn't posted it. Maybe that's on me for being out of touch, but I'm assuming there are others out there who would want to know about this (and would be interested in finding out when the re-launch will be).
Actually, I probably would have left it because, like you, I found it interesting. But I pulled it once I found out the attempt was postponed. If its up to me, I'll leave the thread up when the next try occurs in the future. But, technically, I think this is unlawful OT according to the MGoStrictures.
nfl week 5 c'mon man takes shot a OSU
Oh the weather outside is frightful...
...but that topic is so delightful!
As interesting as it is, this is too OT. Unfortunately, it being in the M Daily is just not enough to keep it on the Board. Plus, the potential for the slippery NSFMrs.Kass slope and whatnot.
(For future reference, if you are considering employing the "way" OT description, its probably not Board-worthy during the season.)
My rule of thumb: never click on a topic marked 'WAY OT" or containing a question mark. Bad news. Always.
Someone help me keep an eye on this user: http://mgoblog.com/users/roman. He's been a member for 30 minutes as of this note and his first post was as off-topic as it gets.
[Dear Random Internet Guy/Gal: Please stop negging my posts in this moderator thread. Its silly and only makes it harder for people to see the reason why their post may have been pulled. Neg me in my regular Board entries if you want. If you don't like my moderating, contact Brian (email@example.com) and he will respond accordingly. #endofrant]
This post really should be removed.

Looks like a good cause worthy of a 99 point boost.
