Moderator Action Sticky 2014
Spam here in the Monday Hoke Presser. Seems to be screwing up the formating of the comments thread too.
I took out the spam but the formatting irreguralities persist, so I'll check some of the other comments to see if a GIF or video or something was shoved in there crosswise, as it were, bringing chaos to HTML-land. Thanks for reporting that though.
Y U STILL DRAFTAGEDDON?
Did Brady lose weight? He looks thinner! Maybe it's the black shirts.
Warning, this post is extremely meta and many won't care. Fine, no need to read.
Normally every mod action on an OP ends with signed work somewhere. Whether that's here, or ending an OP with Mod edit: blah blah blah JGB. or posting a comment to the same effect. With the end of OT season we'll be removing (or maybe adding, but mostly removing) OT tags from posts that aren't off topic and frankly I don't think it's worth it to clutter posts or comments with a note saying why.
If anything else is changed there will be a note. If this happens to your post please don't take offense. If you have a question about it go ahead and ask here in the mod sticky.
Bad title, no link. Quote seemed like click bait but if the article is pretty good someone else can post it with a better OP.
OP, enjoy your work vacation. No need to stress about a throwaway quote in a season preview for a not Michigan team.
Garrett Taylor Tears ACL
This is a duplicate thread, the original now relagated to the second page but still only about 18 hours old. All the same, wishing Taylor a speedy recovery.
When you're moderating would it be a ton of extra work when you see a thread that's particularly good (good discussion, good photoshops, important news, special analysis) etc. to put an asterisk at the end of the title, and maybe if it's getting pushed down change the posting time so it bumps back up?
The board in-season gets so crowded that I thought the good stuff (e.g. EGD's annual preview) could use some extra glitter. But since you guys would have to be doing it, I wanted to gauge whether that's feasible/worth your time.
OT-Chase clears up Sopranos ending (spoiler)
...as well as...
OT - States Ranked by Beer - Michigan ranked #4
I really shouldn't have left the beer one, but admittedly I was amused - I was also trying to get crews out the door, so there wasn't much time left for actual considered modding. We'll remove both in keeping with the fact that OT Season really is, in fact, over.
And as you guys also can attest to, it's not good form to copy and paste someone's entire piece onto the board, link or no link.
Don't feel people should get in trouble, it's just poor form to do that.
Absolutely. Thx for bringing it to our attention.
Posted yesterday + no Bleacher Report.
Meta: page down feature for MGoBoard finally working again NO IT ISN'T!!!
To StephenRKass' point, I also experienced the page down feature working for a bit, but it has only been sporadic for me after that. I know relative success using it, for me anyway, has been correlated somewhat to board traffic. Either way, it doesn't seem like we're quite there yet sadly.
As I mentioned in the now-deleted thread, it seems to work well for me when using Chrome while I'm logged in to the Board. It does NOT work for me on Chrome when I'm not logged in.
So, there's something happening here. But what it is ain't exactly clear. . . . Hope it gets resolved.
Hello: Darian Roseboro
It was originally titled something else and changed after the announcement, but also after the dedicated Hello post had been created. As there was already a thread created for announcement / speculation, we'll run with the dedicated thread though it was the second one created. No offense to 1484, it was a strange situation boardwise.
Elliot Mealer does the most amazing Hoke impression
This one made it to the board sometime yesterday - if you didn't see it though, do so. It is very funny, I thought, and eerily dead on.
Quite literally too...
...was a duplicate thread. That doesn't happen too often here.
Funchess for Heisman 2014
Somewhere in mid-thread, the OP requested its removal, and if I might inject my own opinion, we might want to hold back just a little bit on this sort of talk at the moment. The season is young yet, and while I also see Funchess as in a good position to have a nice year, we do a nice little test coming up next week.
Is the kicking game an area of concern?
I know that I said that we can keep threads that address specific points, but I don't know that there is nearly enough data on the kicking game yet, and I don't know that this is going to add a lot more than what was already discussed in threads.
Awesome Charles Woodson Nissan Heisman House commercials (new)
These made it to the board a few days back. I know it is a pain, but remember to open new tabs when searching the first few pages of threads - generally, something like this will make it to the board rather quickly.
Confusing Week for Buckeyes?
MGoBrewMom sort of said it all here:
Sometimes it's better to say nothing, if you're going to say something asinine.
...in the following thread:
META - "Mod Action Sticky" not sticky
...and the thread has been removed at the request of its creator. For the board's general information, the link to the sticky within the menus on the site's top bar is current. If you check it on occasion, I recommend keeping a shortcut to it as well if you're looking to see what has been posted and removed.
OT: NFL Open Thread (GB vs. SEA)
Granted, the other thread is not specifically dedicated to the Green Bay-Seattle game, but there is some discussion of it going already in the previously created thread.
My bad, I didn't notice that the earlier thread covered the NFL game as well. Reading comprehension fail on my part.
No rumors without sources. If anyone has a rumor from a good source that wants to remain anonymous I'd suggest contacting Brian or Ace.
But leave up some of the others? Just curious.
As I was without power last night (and I have been since Friday night), I listened (unfortunately) on a radio feed, and have spent the last hour at work here reading thread as I am able, we're going to do some cleanup here. Not every one of these was offensive or redundant per se, but some are just victims of cleanup for more direct discussions. The following will go in the first round of cuts:
Hoke keeps job if...
Look on the bright side ......
We can all agree on firing Dave Brandon, right?
Just Fire Hoke alreBut the Royals lost!ady
Ever Been Punched By A Donkey?
Potential Replacements for Hoke and Amount AD Has To Pay For Top Notch Hire

Complete and Utter Speculation: Jim Harbaugh to Michigan? (NBC Sports)

There's only one thing left to say.
Fire Dave Brandon

Halftime Lemons, with a chaser
How do I listen to the Michigan Radio call online?
Round 2: Michigan v. Irish
Live Stream website anyone?
To Notre Dame with Hell
Probably zapped on the board as a snowflake, 100% not diary.
B1G Black Saturday fallout at Ohio State
Yeah, I am going to just jump in and say that gratuitous insults thrown at us by Ohio State writers will probably generate very limited interest on the board, especially right now.
As much as I love the Big Lebowski, there's a gif in the PSU thread that should probably be taken down for the unpleasant imagery it ensues considering the subject mattter.
OT: Giants vs. Lions game thread is being ignored in favor of MNF: NYG vs MEGATRON and can be deleted.
OT: Giants vs. Lions game thread
This one was taken down in favor of the more developed thread above it (well, it was above it until this post).
Meet Paul from Toledo
This was removed at the OP's request as it reiterates current front page content.
Hypothetical John Harbaugh Availability/Question
I do not foresee this one going particularly well, and while a few threads here and there on position discussions have slid (likeOL discussions), it seems these coaching hypothetical threads generally are non-starters.
Tribe spoke on both. Questions about random coaches are just going to clutter up the board.
Thoughts on Butch Jones?
The OP said that it could be deleted, and in reality it probably should be but only because these threads are almost invariably inflammatory (well, the comments are) even if that isn't the stated intent of the OP, especially as we're not actively looking for a coach.
Hypothetical Coaching Staff in-Waiting
This thread, while I see the humor in it, probably is not going to get the responses that the OP was hoping for.
Post ND lineup changes.
It was probably not a good idea to leave it up as long as I did, and yes, it has descended into the normal panic and groping for solutions not supported by any real evidence. Time for it to go.
Grantland article on Hoke/mediocrity
Beat by a single thread, and yet, this one had more discussion, though much of it was how this was a repeat thread. Few things are more MGoBlog.
I felt that thread became therapeutic. I now haz a sad.
Too OT + nothing official.
This guy—Mgo-Bo—says he won't be posting anymore, but you might want to make it official judging from his last few posts.
To Raoul's post above, Mgo-Bo is indeed MGoGone now. When one's hot take involves calling someone a "cocksucker" and telling someone to "fuck off", yeah, that would be the sort of poster we could do without.
Calling out fans for leaving early
That thread probably will not lead to much in the way of constructive discussion, so it will be pulled before the OP gets too much grief for it.
There's something so magnificent about an ad for a service that provides students with "plagiarism-free" papers they can submit as their own work showing up on the Ace Williams Is In High School thread that I think you should leave this last one up.
provided references from Notre Dame football players.
OT - Jay Campbell accused of assaulting a 3rd person
He's not going to be playing football at any major college.
OT: iPhone owners do not read. But I have a One+ Invite extra. Anyone? :edited
If I read this correctly, the offer has already been taken by someone, so this thread can probably go. If I misread that, I can always put it back up until it is gone, but it wouldn't be able to stay regardless.
Although these threads were probably coming, this one goes...
Fire Brady Hoke
...only because we'll use the "I'm Done With Brady Hoke" thread as the venting thread.
In case we start getting news I think we should keep the five or so current fire people threads.
Who knows, maybe even some good news. Anyone got anything on basketball? Maybe hockey? Gotta be something on softball at least...
Doing a little minor cleanup now that I am sober and can comprehend things right now...
A few of these fall a bit below the snowflake bar (which is high for now), either because they are well-covered in other threads or we've left venting threads for these things up already:
Though the head coach is incompetent, Gardner is a MAJOR part of the issue
Devin Gardner is not a pro style QB
Poor Special Teams On the Punt Return for TD (Also a good indicator that we should go to the spread punt formation)
Time to ditch the current offensive play book
How about Dan Mullen?
I politely disagree on the Punt Return thread. While the others are variations on the general frustration meme on coaching that one accurately pointed out we only had 10 players on the field during the return. Not sure why that had to be taken down - I think that's a pretty big deal given what happened and would've generated a lot of discussion once people woke up and saw it.
I went back through the threads that I initially took down - this one can go back up. It was brushed over in other threads but it definitely wasn't fully covered. My apologies, folks.
To keep the number of threads about this, that and the many other things manageable, we're going to take down a few which sort of run into existing conversations in the first couple pages:
Show Cause Penalties
Not sure if the suggestion of Tressel will be accused of much more than trolling.
New Coach Vision?
Bielema? Has it come to this?
The Sobering Truth
Between some spot factual errors and the fact that this thread isn't doing anything which hasn't been covered in numerous other threads which were left selectively, yeah...
QB and Hoke
Covered in numerous other threads, so this can probably go.
Would You Take the Michigan Job if You Were a Top Candidate?
Not particularly offensive, but if we're going to speculate, this might be an unrealistic road.
Best time to fire Hoke is now, after the ignominy
I left it up so people could vent a little more, but it seemed like it was doomed from the beginning. The tribe spoke too.
Now that the blog is back up, I think there might be another round of cleanup, this time of "proposed solution" threads that didn't go or likely won't go as the OP intended.
Peppers to Offense??
Morris should start at this point
There is a spammer in http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/meta-elaydin-techs-mgoblog-app-needs-fix among other threads. Username is BobbyKunz12.
Michigan by the numbers...
It came down once before because there were plenty of reminders on the board that the recent past has been...not up to the expectations many of us traditionally have held, I'll put it politely. It comes down again because I really don't want to have this sort of fight with a poster.
META: The Side Board Works! - NOT
Yeah, sadly it isn't quite there yet, although I have had marginally better luck with it during lower traffic periods. Unscientific observation, of course.
Tired of where this program is heading?
How long is the phony tickets-for-buying-Coke thread going to stay up?
If Brian or Seth have a problem with the modding on this site, I'm sure they'll either say something or find new mods. Until then, I don't think it's too much to ask to just be generally civil.
Someone saying "hey this is probably no good" has usually gotten a thank you for years at this point. If you think this is me overreacting, fine, but I don't think I need to be answering a "how long will this stay up" question from anyone other than Brian or Seth.
This thread is staying up because despite your claims to the contrary it was confirmed true.
Indeed it has, and I apologize for jumping to conclusions. But as I said in the thread, I am suspicious since there is so much crap being tossed on anything smelling like Michigan football right now.
Be careful what we wish for...
No offense to the OP, but there are plenty of threads for this on the first few pages by now. At some point, enough really is enough with these sorts of threads. We left quite a few to try and stem the tide of further threads, so please read over other threads before posting these things.
Don't Go to the "game" this weekend
I go to bed a bit early (for me) and, yeah, this thread probably ended precisely as you might think. As we've established in other threads, a lot of folks around here are a bit more engaged than to sink to a level where burning tickets, as the OP suggested, would even be a consideration.
Rich Rodriquez for next Michigan HC
The playful trolling is fine now and again, but I think the Lane Kiffin one might be all we can handle right now, and I am not sure some are handling it too well even at that.
Hoke for Head Coach
There is only one man for the job(s)
I know people are venting, trying to be funny, but we do need to try and not clutter the board too much more than we already have with such things.
DG To Wide Receiver?
I don't know that this is going to go the way the OP thinks - it's been discussed at length, I believe, every time Gardner has had a less-than-stellar game.
Sucks for Branson.
There was an ABC news headline this morning reading
WHY RICHARD BRANSON LETS VIRGIN EMPLOYEES TAKE UNLIMITED TIME OFF
That'll get you fired. Not to mention sued for harassment and discrimination.
I am taking this down as I don't know that this is quite significant enough for another thread:
More bad news for Dave Brandon
It seems like the Coca-Cola fiasco was very well-publicized and discussed at length last night.
Kickstarter for skywriting
Opinion was largely split in this thread, but I dare say that it was not nearly as popular as the OP might have believed it would be, and indeed, he changed the tone of it. Still, I don't know that it is partiularly constructive to embark on such a thing.
We have plenty of bad press, we don't need to create anymore.
After ruminating on it overnight, I agree that it would be best for this to go away.
Suppress all discourse by removal (effectively, censorship).
There was no discussion of politics or religion. It was completely on-topic. Controversial and provocative, perhaps. Not entirely inappropriate, considering the past actions of the AD. If anything, a medium for fans to voice their varying opinions about the AD and what should be done.
This is over-moderation, and the reason why I (personally) don't care to contribute to the board as often. It's unfortunate.
a case of too much controversy/discourse on the board in general. It seems like the mood of the board at the moment is, shall we say, somewhat negative and possibly we don't need anymore fuel on this fire. Censorship? I don't agree.
Over-moderation is a matter of opinion, but its a tough job and letting something go further than it should brings criticism. And taking something down before it gets out of control brings the same reaction.
One could easily make a case that this site is currently under-moderated, especially in comparison to way it was moderated during the Rodriguez era.
The board is censored. This should not be shocking news.
If you think they are censoring discourse here, you must be missing about 2/3 of the front page.
I think it should have stood for posterity. Clearly there were those in favor and those against and a decent discussion/debate ensued. Not sure why this had to get axed.
I would pick Shane
I think thr 47 downvotes probably indicate where this discussion was going to go. Actually, in the case of this particular topic, where it was going to go again...still. We've discussed this several times across several threads which are still in the first few pages.
Grantland on Gardner Vs. Morris
This article, while good in my opinion, did appear on the blog yesterday. Briefly, it appeared twice.
Hopefully this helps restore the gaping hole in a2_electricboogaloo's heart.
know what happened to a post I made a little while ago? It was titled "News from around the B1G" and I didn't think it was something that would warrant taking down. If it was I apologize, but just trying to see what happened. Thanks.
EDIT: Nevermind, I found it.
I posted in your thread, but when I've returned to check for further posts, all I've seen Is Access Denied. For me, it appears that your thread is "Gone, Gone, Gone."
Hey, I just sent the mods an email, but was this the day that my mgopoints were going to be screwed up in the coding after the incident last month? Honestly, I can't remember posting anything remotely offensive (in fact, I didn't really post much at all yesterday afternoon or evening, IIRC), and I didn't get any emails saying anything was deleted. Thanks.
That should be the end of it. Sorry, reversing points is more quirky than it should be.
Whew, thanks. I kinda freaked out, then remembered someone said something about that maybe being a problem. Thanks for taking care of it!
Dave Brandon has access to the MGoPoint Mainframe.
PANIC AND RUN AROUND SCREAMING.
You think Dave Brandon would give me another 110,000 MGoPoints for free?
In other words, looks like it swung in the other direction now. This is kinda fun.
EDIT: I'm #1!
Honestly my negging has gone WAY down over the past year. Now I just save them for trolls and NegBangs.
Former OL on coaching staff: "these guys are jokes"
If there were more to it than the secondhand story on SuperFan's YouTube feed, maybe this ends differently, but to my recollection, no one of note has given an interview on his "program", if it can be called that. Since there is no first-hand or more credible information, this has to go.
Hopefully I'm misunderstanding what is being said.
I just read that, and I don't even really care if it was in jest or if it was a grave misspeak - you don't say things that even sniff death threats and expect to remain here. That particular user is done and rightly so.
The way out of this darkness.
Similar sentiments have been expressed across multiple threads which were left up, so this one can come down, I think. I am as upset as anyone really, but we do need to still consider the question of "threadworthy" vs. "am I simply agreeing with what has been posted?".
How Much $$ Will You Pony Up?
I rather feel that this probably could go into one of the other coaching threads left up, but also it seems that we've discussed numerous "creative" measures to make an unlikelihood a likelihood this week regarding Harbaugh.
A call for calm
Posts which, right now, are going to cause in-fighting by calling out others probably don't need to be on the board. I understand that there are still several schools of thought - "calm", "rage", etc... - but let's not make conscious attempts to be divisive right now.
You can throw my thread in there as well. Hadn't seen the calm one pulled, so obviously poked a bear that was already pretty cranky. My bad.
These two are going to spiral downward in an ugly way very quickly...
Let's think this out for a second...
as well as...
"A couple of facts regarding Hokes' contract"
Again, there are many threads going on the first few pages were these could have easily been posted.
And then this...
Hoke: worst coach in M history?
Framed as a function of winning percentage as the OP suggested, the answer is clearly "no", as others demonstrated very quickly.
Can we ban him/her please? http://mgoblog.com/users/cold-war
You don't often see MGoCareers truly do this...
SIAP: Contact Schlissel and the regents and voice your disgust
This actually came down before for the sole reason that we don't need to re-publish the contact information for the Regents so they can get more irate fans in their ears than they might already have. That, and having their work addresses and work phone numbers up there might lead to problems from a few people.
Tradition, Tradition, Tradition.
I believe the larger problem of Michigan's crisis of identity is being well-covered in other threads.
Ross on Brandon: Duplicate
Gregg Henson gets the Assclown tag: I tried to establish Henson's credibility, even reached out to him on Twitter. The guy is getting emails from one former player passing along the suite of dubious stories, and is trying to use that to become the MC for the downfall of this administration. I've decided to just not bite. Treat Henson stories like Drew Sharp et al.
Would Hoke step down now?
Indirectly, this has been covered in numerous threads already, enough so that I think this can come down. We might want to limit speculation on stuff like this until something unfolds, if anything.
for you guys, huh?
Who are the real candidates?
There is extensive coverage of this in the Diary section actually, so we may try to just confine it to there for the time being. Plenty of names / assessments being discussed with room to add your own.
Apologies to everyone, but I am trying to condense the board discussion just a bit here and the extraneous protest threads seem the best target....
CC: A protest we can all get behind
Make an immediate statement: Wear RED at UTLIII.
Support #BoycottMaryland or #BoycottIndiana
I know one wasn't too bad, but let's keep the obvious disenchantment limited to select discussions.
Gregg Henson, that is, who is officially part of the "persona non grata" list, therefore...
Dave Brandon negotiating release?
This one goes. Also this...
MGoFrenzy: The Rant-O-Rama of the Entitled
This one is going downhill too. We've left plenty of threads for rants, folks.
Might want to check out the thread about the lack of a public disclosure of that medical report RE: Morris. Someone may have messed up the Lightbox gallery they dropped in there and it fills up the page for anyone who is logged in. It might also be an elaborate prank on me, in which case bravo.
You can disable it by using Developer tools in something like Chrome, but that feels like more work than you need.
Nothing particularly bad here, just some condensing of the discussion by removing a few threads which are sort of covered by other parts of the board right now or other threads.
Where the hell are Michigan's leaders?
There are numerous threads asking this very same thing in different ways.
Don't overlook the cradle of coaches
Extensive discussion of potential candidates in the Diary section already, plus I don't know that a discussion of anything other than high profile names will go anywhere for a lot of reasons. Remember to use "CC" on the board for coaching change though.
Morris probable concussion
On the front page as well as the board already.
On the front page and on the board already.
SIAP: NY Times on the Morris Incident
It was very quickly booted from the first page, but this did make it to the board early this morning.
CC: Let's say Hoke is fired mid-season
This is sort of covered in the "Realistic Timetable" thread, so this post might be better inside that thread.
Inaction by President/Regents
I don't know that we want equate a communications update not happening today to inaction just yet.
The Michigan Indifference
We've had similar ideas in a few threads that were left standing in the last few days, so this one might be played out at this point.
Another Gregg Henson article about Brandon
Gregg Henson was indeed placed on the "journalist non grata" list, so no.
Foster Quotes Sideline Watcher Who Says Trainers Told Hoke to Remove Morris
I found the segment, and typically a particular show on 97.1 is not well-received here due to the people who do it. Well, more one than the other, and I rather failed in my duties by picking a fight in that thread, but I don't know that this tells us anything that couldn't easily go into another thread right now.
Michigan Student Athlete Committee Issues Statement Backing Brandon
This was covered in the wee hours. Actually, at this point, we may have to just assume that if a statement has been issued, it will be on this board within seconds.
...was run one staff meeting, attend another, and come back to find...
Prediction: Hoke pulls Gardner from game this Saturday
This is the sort of prediction that is best left to the recesses of one's own mind.
Done and done.
The Influence of Large Donors
I think this has several threads which are at least secondarily involved in this discussion still in the first few pages of the board.
This is the most important group of UM students in my lifetime
The board could really do without more melodramatics right now.
Butter over too much bread
The thread "Can we please walk it back a bit?" is basically the same thing, but I agree with the sentiment. No offense to the OP here.
Brandon / The Plot Thickens
Unless there was something shocking in the SAAC statement that I missed, never mind it has made it to the board twice today, then the plot most certainly did not thicken.
I will eat a cargo container used to ship lemons if Mack Brown is the next coach.
I look forward to the videos of fellow MGoBloggers scampering over the docks of various port cities as a way to shame you in 6 months.
MSU trolls on coaching and program ethics
I don't see how this gets a good reception considering the mood of the board right now, much less on a good day. Actually, it wouldn't be that well-received more or less regardless.
A little cleanup...mainly some "feelings threads" that could probably go in favor of other discussions. No offense to the OPs in each case, but we've left a lot of these this week.
One mans view
Michigan's Offense and SP
What was that second one even about anyway?
Not a feelings thread, just the SI article already posted a couple days ago...
Brady Hoke is struggling, but his integrity should not be indicted
Where'd the thread with the alleged DB email go?
My guess is they pulled it until WD can get proof that the email wasn't a fake. Don't want to spread something like that if someone just made that up (which wouldn't be very hard to do). Even if it's something that Brandon would definitely do, it looks bad for the site to be spreading rumors like that without any sort of proof.
Dave Brandon sends snarky email back to alum
Without confirmation or context, it's hard to justify leaving this one up, especially without the original e-mail. Even if we can believe it is a Brandon-esque reply, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves here.
ADDENDUM: Brian put this back due to numerous reported instances of e-mails like this coming from the account, and it is now being FOIA'ed, so we shall see. Apologies, folks.
Can the thread be revived if Devotee gets proof?
Brian is sending an FOIA request via BiSB tonight. If it's real, I'm sure this isn't the last we'll hear of it.
For Brian's sake, and the sake of his blog, I hope it's real. It seems Brian has very little to gain and a lot to lose by leaving the post up with the hope of confirming the email's authenticity in the future.
Already FOIAd it. See thread.
At least get them to make a foia that gets more/other than I got, or contact me, please. No sense in paying 2 fees.
BiSB posted an email address in the thread if you want to get in touch with him about it. FWIW he's also said such a limited and specific request for emails should be free.
Thanks for the heads up. I was also assuming it would actually be free, but I wouldn't put it past them to pretend they have no easy way of getting the documents given the dissembling we've seen thus far.
Who has a more punchable face?
Yeah, I don't think this is going to generate a useful discussion...
Whereas this, well well-intentioned in my estimation...
RR appreciation thread.
We have already let a few threads on RR and the Arizona game stay, and this is rather what they became in a sense, so while there's nothing wrong with this from a content standpoint, it does speak to something that's already being discussed on the board.
OT (Not CC): Jim Harbaugh comfortable in chaos
This was indeed posted about a day or so ago.
Hopefully this kid can get his issues resolved and go on to live a productive life, but he's completely off topic.
SemiOT: fans in the Knoxville Tennessee area
I would imagine that not many people here know where you can get Tennessee tickets on the street, and most people here (and they did) would actively discourage the OP from talking trash to Tennessee fans.
META: For the Writers
Removed at the request of the OP.
Is stuff like that acceptable?
This guy needs to be banned.
EDIT: Thank you, mods.
Not really anything particularly offensive, just trying to head off "Feelingsposts" and condense some discussions which are going in other threads. If I made a potential error, let me know and we can talk about it going back:
Snowflakes: Philosophy. No, wait. I'm serious.
FG time run off question
Clock - was there an error?
I can't believe what I'm watching with this MSU Nebraska game
If Hoke were a real Michigan man, he would resign.
Some of this is also discussion that was had extensively last week that probably doesn't need immediate revisitation for the board's own mental health.
A couple more....
I'm blind, mods you know what to do..
There was a combo thread for Detroit sports already up. Normally, separate OT threads are fine, but we will try to work with this one today.
Thank You Notre Dame
The village more or less spoke, but thanking ND for cancelling the rivalry to stave off our own embarrassment in the future seems little over the top.
Can we get rid of this comment? It's a pretty unacceptable personal attack, plus it uses a developmental disorder as a punch line.
No maize...just blue
No content...just words.
Sparty Student Section Empty
Already posted yesterday, I believe.
Derrick Green not on latest depth chart.
Looking at the schedule, 2-10 seems probable now
Disproven as possible, but not yet probable.
CC: Paul Johnson
Yeah, we're probably going to devise a sticky system for these, but until then, the least popular ones are probably going to go once the board has had a chance to speak.
The case for positivity
No offense to the OP, and I get where this was going- I am just trying to keep other content on the board.
Mich State AD embarrassed by student attendance
This has made it to the bord twice already. We did leave one, of course.
...and we're going to do some selective editing for the time being of the CC craze...
CC: Lance Leipold

It's nothing offensive, folks, it's just getting to a point where other content is disappearing.
....for cleaning up the board...
MGoBoard Created Thread Volume out of Control thread
We're definitely working on this one.
MIA: Jabrill Peppers
It has been well-covered already, but he did travel and he is injured.
CC: Jon Gruden
Come now. Real possibilities, like Voldemort Pelini or whatever.
The ad isn't from the AD, it's from an MGoSponsor who has an account and posts on the board. Full story here.
Yeah, this can all come down now....
As promised - Main reason for MI's woes
Does not matter here
To be brief, the reason for the flameout and the flameout, in that order.
....of these threads:
Support the team...by BOYCOTTING THE GAME
The atmosphere around here is divisive enough as it is right now, and the other boycott ideas were left so people could vent / propose alternative / skewer, etc... Let's put these threads to bed for a bit, eh?
There's no way to establish what's going on in players minds, especially something like this that probably wouldn't even be a conscious thought anyway.
I also believe that there are about a thousand more relevant issues than Hoke's weight, and that it gets dangerously close to an ad hominem as opposed to discussing anything we see on the field or from behind a podium.
Whatever you may believe, I think the boycott threads really do end up being divisive and nasty. No more, folks.
Good article about Hoke being doom from the start of his tenure
No Bleacher Report.
Perhaps Oblivion would suit better:
Cleaning up a few from the graveyard shift...
I had Pizza
Yeah, but simply saying this is not really a great thread in and of itself, unless it was a truly crazy pizza, in which case you know the rule - pics or it didn't happen.
Schlissel: "Culture change" needed in the athletic department
The comment about "culture change" from Schlissel has been up twice now since it was made, so this one can come down now.
The work you are doing on the board is very much appreciated.
.....except I am doing it from Toronto right now...
OT: Gregg Henson credibility?
No Gregg Henson.
The thread that starts out bad enough with "For those who still don't understand the annoyance with the athletic department..." and only goes downhill from there, should be deleted. Stuff like this only brings out people who thrive on ugliness and look for more of it to pile on.
Let's trim some of the offerings to maximize other content....

Dave Brandon Appreciation Thread
Straight to Ricks
Impact of win on CC?
Nothing terribly offensive, but there was a CC thread of sorts and the rest could stand to go for the evening.
So the offense was awful again.
Snowflake, and someone actually did create these threads while I was at the cabaret, so thanks!
I believe that the injury has been well-established on the blog. He is indeed out with an injury, so there is not much else to see here.
Now that Sparty has flipped the script and become the dominant in-state program
I think the village more or less spoke here. I honestly wasn't sure where this was going myself and neither were a lot of people, it seems.
Something something no politics:
Honestly though, that whole thread is a mess.
The dude had over 6,000 points too so it's not like he's a newbie just learning the ropes. I was eagerly awaiting learning his thoughts on race & human sexuality next. I'm sure they would be quite insightful.
Color me surprised, but if it was part of a massive cleaning of that thread, a necessary casualty of war, I suppose....
I don't know whether that was in the Todd Graham thread LSA cleaned up or the Bacon thread I went through, but if that's what you posted I really doubt it got deleted on its own. A William Jennings Bryan post is pretty unlikely to start a flamewar in 2014.
When a comment gets deleted all of the replies get deleted as well, if you check the email you used to sign up there should be a form email from MGoBlog saying that's a possibility.
They're my favorite. Some of our best work is done in threads/comment trees that are destined for deletion.
The crazy thing is that millions is probably only a slight exaggeration.
SIAP Slippery Rock to avoid Sparty uniforms for game Saturday
This was indeed already posted.
This dude's been going full-throttle on the hate since he registered a new name two weeks ago, but is there any reason to use the r-word?
Spambots abound: http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/2015-recruit-andrew-david-named-massillons-starting-qb#new
Cold War that he is suddenly negative points? From what I've read... his postings, when taking an unpopular view, strive for a respectful tone. People jumped all over his recent diary post and I don't understand the hostility.
So full of.... information
I found the adjustment to his points made at 1:24 PM yesterday, but no reason given. It might very well have been the diary that sent him over the edge, if I had to guess though. I didn't do the deed this time and I don't think that JGB did either though, but that diary....yeah....
Thank you for the courtesy of a reply. It is appreciated. I still don't understand what made people go crazy about the diary. Even if people disagree about his opinion, even if they disagree vehemently, does he not have the right to express an opinion or does everything have to conform to some sort of code?
I also don't get the value of the whole downvote thing. If someone with a billion points decides to give me that -1 cause it makes them feel better, have at it. But it tells me nothing and in this particular thread there should be an explanation. If you don't want the thread cluttered with questions like mine say so. I'd respect that, anyone would respect that.
However... however. One final question. If someone chooses to delete their account does all the posting history go with it?
I can't really speak for whoever in fact removed that diary, but there informal parameters that have nothing to do with the content of the opinion per se. Many times, you'll see a diary which is contrarian but well-constructed and makes its point quite well and while those may get downvotes because some merely use the mechanism for anything they don't like, it will also get respect even from its detractors.
Having now read the diary entry again, I dare say it didn't really meet the parameters / standards of something that should have been in the diary section (again, it's more about how you say it, not always what you say there).
As for the other question, if a user is caved, then their account and posts both disappear. If someone is merely blocked, they cannot posts but their history remains.
The mods will take down a diary or send it to the board if there was an error or there's something really obviously wrong with leaving it up, but LSA and I leave all of the editorial judgements abot diaries to Seth, and from what I remember BiSB is also really hands off there. That said, I agree with moving it to the board (whoever did, it wasn't me or LSA). Generally speaking a diary needs to contain some new information and be significant to understanding a subject, and anything that doesn't should probably be a forum topic. There's a reminder about that when you click to create a diary.
If Ramona is talking about herself, the only real way to delete an account is to ask a mod to cave it. I hope you stick around, though.
Sorry it was me. I shoulda noted it in here. I moved it to the board because it wasn't diary material.
I didn't do it. I don't think.
What happened to the "Some be seasoning better than Emeril" thread?
There are two threads which are not going very well and probably will continue to not go well just based on the reaction they are getting for the most part....
ND loss Schadenfreude
What ever happened to the Big Ten I used to know?
At 29 downvotes and descending, I think this is another CC thread that has run its course when it comes to the usefulness of the replies and it would be difficult to salvage anyway...

To paraphrase a line from the movie "Dragnet"..."These threads seemed merely irritating at first, but were quickly gaining notoriety through their growing freuquency and naked brazenness..."
Wolverine fans want it more than the UM players?
Basically a comment on the thread containing quotes from Funchess currently on the first page. This could have easily gone in there.
Funchess says it's ''just another game''
Out of context quote is out of context. Bad thread is bad.
Rules and how the up/down voting works?
I noticed that when I am negged, I lose points. Yet, I see others get negged and they do not.
Am I that disliked here or am I just uninformed?
It doesn't show immediately, but everyone's points change when they get upvoted and downvoted comments.
Let's all talk about how posts are cool. Posts have swag. I'd like it if posts were actually titled with reference to what's in the thread, and not just some player's name you want to talk about.
We look stupid when a bunch of people criticize Brandon's tenure at Domino's and get key facts incorrect. I've let the threads stick but it's getting ridiculous, and there are not enough people with knowledge of the pizza business around to refute falsehoods properly.
Since it's super OT just gonna nix the thread this time. DB's old business isn't off limits because his success there absolutely has informed his approach to Michigan, but considering all the calls to fire him from the board and this site in general I'd like to at least be able to say we didn't encourage false crap like "Domino's is so great now that he's gone" to be attached to him.
OT: Domino's stock is hot again
The same CNN Money article was posted last night and removed ultimately. See Seth's post directly above this one for the reasoning.
Notre Dame freshman dating porn star courtesy of TMZ. Good for him, but gossip threads about former opponents girlfriends aren't going to stay up.
Edited it because crazy speculation from misunderstood context, and I find speculation on players who won't be here next year distasteful.
Once we're past one substance I'm guessing post quality suffers if you're not MGoBlog's reincarnation of Hunter S Thompson.
Hostile comments from the OP will derail a thread every time.

We'll keep the other drinking thread.

Not sure what this one was about, but it was apparently unpopular.
Dear Pres. Schlissel
While there was nothing terrible about this one, we'll hold off for more substantive criticisms which will undoubtedly appear later today. This was more a "Fire Brandon" snowflake, which...I think most are in agreement and we'll get flooded with it today anyway, I bet.
John U - DB Broke Michigan Athletics
This made it to the board on Friday.
I guess I don't understand why a thread with more than a hundred responses about the spear incident is "redundant." I understand wanting to clean up the front page and all, but the spear thread and the photo thread were pretty much two separate discussions, both of which had evolved on their own.
Tidbits from Spartyland
RCMB threads should stay at RCMB.
There are plenty of threads criticizing Hoke and even getting into poking fun at some things he's done, but this is the "365 day calendar of dumb things [politician you don't like] has said" equivalent of MGoBoard.
I'm not saying anyone is trying to get malicious, but the more personal and further removed from football a thread is the more it's going to turn nasty.
Petty post is petty, and sadly NTP.
If you're tempted to make a thread to do nothing but ridicule a guy, maybe take a second to think of someone doing the same about a job you or someone close to you was fired from. I get that it's really high profile and we all care a lot, but Hoke is a person too.
Another. Linking to a month old front page article about Morris' concussion without any new info didn't help either.
After the 3rd or 4th thread today, how about using the banhammer on users who feel the need to post Brady Hoke personal attack threads.
The last couple won't be making new threads any time soon, same for any new ones.
One Comment on Little Brother
At 71 downvotes, this one has probably run its course - apologies for not being around. Plugged dishwasher drains are funny like that.
One nostalgia thread stayed up, but following rich people with Michigan connections around via flight tracker is going too far.

Potential explanation for Peppers not playing
He's hurt. I am not sure why some believe that there are more things afoot in this regard, although I suppose a bit more transparency from Schembechler Hall might not be such a bad thing now and again.
Is this behavior okay around here?
Just curious as to why someone with such a negative history of posting is allowed to continue to do so...
I forgot to mention that it was me who awarded WD 1 million (pinkie finger touching corner of lips) MGoPoints for the rest of the year, to ease the pain and suffering he experienced over the past few weeks leading up to Wednesday's Dave Brandon email front-pager.

Usually, I will see these and just remove them, but at barely 8 AM on a Tuesday, sometimes I wonder what the pressing matter was.
If you moused over the link before it was removed, you'd see that it was the 35th thread titled "Delete."
OK, maybe not that interesting.
nor should you.
Just like I posted in that thread, I respectfully argue that the knee-jerk anti-Gregg Henson policy is a bit misguided. He was in the Detroit market long enough to cultivate a number of sources. Sure, he's a bit goofy, but it's undeniable he has sources at Michigan. As State Street pointed out, he had the story about Schlissel going to practice before anybody else did. The piece in question about Harbaugh isn't egregious in the least.
Long story short, he's not Ace Williams. This is a guy who has worked in the SE Michigan media. I think it's more than fair to discuss his work here. But, it's not my blog. Just a suggestion.
It was not a knee-jerk reaction. We were getting almost daily posts from him, then people see the thread posted about what Henson said, and say they heard it on MGoBlog that... and I had to make a call. Before doing so, I tried to have a conversation with him on Twitter (and BiSB chimed in as well), and it was that conversation, where Henson demonstrated he clearly didn't know the first thing about credibility and sourcing, that made the decision easy.
The problem with Henson is he posts EVERYTHING his sources tell him, with no context or filter except what Henson wants to happen. It's also who the sources are. Around Michigan there are sources, and then there's the low-hanging fruit: some former players with strong opinions, a couple of big donors, and then some HS coaches around the Midwest whose players get recruited and hear "things." I personally don't spend a lot of time cultivating sources--most who want their thing known email Brian not me--so I have a fair sense of the people who REALLY want to share something, because I end up CC'ed on the thing to Brian that Brian doesn't post. A lot of what Henson's posting is stuff that we don't put up because we can tell rigth off that it has no good basis.
The guy is a rumormongerer, as designed to promote himself via threads on message boards as Drew Sharp is. We're not gonna play along.
I didn't use the insta-ban rule like I did for Ace Williams posting. People are welcome to throw Henson's crap into threads, e.g. the one about Foote's comments. But no threads just for Henson rumors, because Henson rumors are a dime a dozen and don't meet any reasonable standard of credibility.
CC: Hayden Fox
This was inserted as a joke into a previous CC thread a few weeks ago. Actually, let's stick to A) real people (but keep Hayden in our back pocket) and B) choices were a good argument for feasibility can be made if only to reduce the clutter and keep other content visible.
Real OT: Got any grapes?
A standard deviation or two beyond allowable OT during the season. At the very least, it could have been our first play from scrimmage against Maryland, which will look something like this peformance -
If our first play from scrimmage included a brunette in shorty shorts and a guy in a rocket costume with smoke billowing from his ass, I'd say that would top M00N for sheer entertainment purposes.
Well, sort of...
Pres Schlissel clarifies remarks about athletics/academics
This was the first thread created, but the other one has a nice summary to go with it, so this is a semi-editorial decision. Nothing wrong with the thread and no offense meant to anyone.
Is there not an option to merge threads?
The only thing we can do is get rid of it or leave it up (or move it to a diary or whatever).
Right decision. Once in awhile if there's a REALLY good response in the thread we're losing, I'll transpose it. That means putting it in, changing the name of the poster, and copying over the timestamp.
Honest question: Would you keep Hoke if you were guaranteed 10 wins in 2015?
The tribe spoke on this one. I will be forthright though - this one was a bit of a reach.

These speculation threads generally do not go well (and this one definitely was not going well based on the comments), so it might be wise to hold off on them for the time being, folks.

Everyone was cranking up their sarcasm amplifier and you deleted the Brandstatter thread before I had a chance to jam with the garage band.

Your personal Brady Hoke analogies / posbang
Yeah, it rather became a thread where people were simply piling on, which we don't need to do in the present situation. I think the board's discontent is well-understood at this point.
I guess the thread was sort of like Brady Hoke. It's sad it didn't work out the way it was intended but I understand it needed to be removed.

It might be easier to revisit the prospect of Tom Brady as a QB coach once he has in fact logged successful time as one, if indeed this ever happens. For now, it's 100% speculation.

OT: News in the Weird - Jose Conseco
I am going to err on the side of caution and say this one is perhaps a bit too OT for "Non-OT" season. Amusing though, if a tad gross.
Taken down for ruining everyone's day.
User "Comenclater" is a spammer. Saw his post on the Michigan-Hillsdale recap.
He'll now be spamming from under a bridge.
If you're about to post something and you're like, "wow I can't believe this hasn't been posted already" you've either (unlikely) hit the posting jackpot or you're (more likely) underestimating how quickly people get stuff up onto the board.
OT: Need help from the MGo computer experts....
This one has to come down under the "not a kiosk" rule, but hopefully the OP got some good direction all the same. Nothing wrong with the question, of course.
Cleaned up a LOT from the Clark FP post and thread. Victim-blaming (or even the insinuation of) is totally unacceptable, and there's a hell of a lot more that wasn't okay, either. If you were banned, email me, and don't expect much sympathy.
Great job today mediating and modding an incredibly difficult and contentious news day, not just to you, but all the mods. Seriously, this is what separates us from the RCMBs of the world.
in that thread.
It's maddening that there is no appropriate place to confront him and his incredibly offensive attack on the humanities.
I also believe his statements, at their essence, were offensive, political, and off-topic - the triumverate of inappropriateness you refer to in your initial post in this thread.
Poster Bergs was right on the money, so I'll just quote him/her.
No. I'm okay with the fact that Hoke gave him a second chance. I'm okay with the fact that Hoke kicked him off when he broke the law a second time. I'm not okay with the fact that you made this thread.
This situation is truly terrible, but Hoke made the right/only choice and did it very quickly. Another thing to remember, domestic violence is not a football issue. Sadly this is something Schlissel will need to deal with or prepare to deal with in every facet of the university.
Just had a question, I got an email about a deleted comment and I have no idea where the comment came from as I haven't commented in a couple days. This is what the email said, any idea what happened here?
ItsSeaboltSon, the following comment was deleted from the site: ------ Downloaded the program and it ------ <p>Downloaded the program and it added three pages that automatically open whenever I open Chrome now.. yahoo, google and sweetpacks search. Looks like I need to reinstall my browser and hope it dies. Download with caution.</p> ------ If this seems relatively innocuous it's probably because you replied to a seriously offensive comment and your comment was collateral damage. If the above is seriously dumb or offensive, this has caused the mods to cock an eyebrow at you. Tread carefully lest you tempt the banhammer.
It's the site version of being form letter'd, if you will. When a comment gets deleted, all the replies in that part of the chain go with it and everyone gets that e-mail regardless. If a user gets caved, only their posts disappear and then most reply chains no longer make sense when this happens.
I think his point was that from the looks of the email, it looks like his account got spambotted and he's worried about it.
That was mostly my concern, that and if I did break a rule I wasn't sure what. But if it was just a delete to a comment chain then it probably isn't my fault. So I'm good, Thanks y'all
Hoke Didn't Speak to Clark?
Taking this down before the OP gets a complete (but warranted) verbal lashing from the board. I am going to wager a guess that, given the particulars of Clark's case, this is not exactly important nor would it be necessary. The larger point is that Hoke handled this very well.
But I think you were wrong to take this down. All of the critics were just pointing to what the cops said, as if police reports have never gotten anything wrong before. Hoke did say that he got both sides of the story, and how he got FC's side of the story is an open (and interesting) question.
It did work at Dunder Mifflin for a while. Will John or Jim want to build tube city? Who will run the Bullets, Bourbon, and Belles game when the AD runs into liquidity problems? So many questions...
Hey guys - not really META thread worthy but I'm pretty sure there's something goofy going on that's causing quite the double post outbreak on the site. Veteran posters who definitely know not to hit "save" more than once are having it happen to them and if you look at virtually any thread you'll see multiple double postings across the board. And most are followed by a "I dont know what just happened" explanation.
Over the past couple of weeks I've had three or four and I'll bet I didnt have any (outside of a post game site melt down) in the past three years. Yesterday I had one where i absolutely know I didnt hit save more than once and the double post appeared immediately. Just thought I give you guys a heads up if you hadnt noticed this already.
I too hope for good things instead of bad things.
What if Mr. Dibley's version of "If" had made it to the screen before Lindsay Anderson's?
Not only is this absolutely none of our business, the insinuation that anyone's sexual orientation or gender identity is a bad thing won't be tolerated here.
Michigan Alumni and fans Harbaugh Campaign

Yeah, not sure what posting random links to offshore sites has to do with anything. Not even sure what the point of this was in general as some of us are reading the blog on machines that work through firewalls and filters.
It was kind of funny?
....so this one can come down for now.

Kind words, but I think this sentiment has been expressed in enough threads. Also, it doesn't appear that folks are in the mood at the moment.

Not exactly revolutionary, in the end.
Can we think about banning the Joke-CC thread trend? There were a couple funny ones a month or so ago when the trend started (the original Ron Zook one was fantastic), but now they're just lazy half formed jokes that contribute nothing to the board.
