to play football, not to play trumpet

I had heard of being a douche, but had no way to qualify the act of being so. I'm sure it didn't originate here, but MGoBlog sure helped its legend grow.
This is the most common term used to describe Drew Sharp.
Asshattery. Perfect for describing the byproducts of Drew Sharp's cranial-rectal inversion.
This is one of my favorites for sure. But i enjoy it more when it is "No Talent Ass Clown"
Like Mike Bolton?
It took talent to consistently avoid TPS reports, while swindling Initech of their money.
I was talking about the singer. Why should the initech worker have to change his name? Michael Bolton is the one who sucks.
I also like 100 percent pure Columbian awesomeness. I had never heard that before joining here.
It's actually Colombian (as in the coffee), and not Columbian.
In that case, I just invented a new term.
Ftr, it's also properly used as a noun. As in "100% pure Colombian Awesome."
The spelling of "percent" is a habit. The symbol saves space, but it is one of those AP Style things that was hammered into my head in J school.
but i am a big fan of HOWEVA
popular last summer after that douche threatened to run over me and my fellow students with his car
That was a post for the ages. Thanks for the contribution.
and am still afraid to go to Potbelly.
He works at Cosi.
unverified voracity and the legend behind it.
EDIT: And also OMGShirtless to describe a potential stud recruit (originated when tebow was a high school senior and some picture of him shirtless came out IIRC). Or the even newer Half-Shirtless to describe a potential recruit who could be good but isnt at the top of the totem pole.
"OMG Shirtless" and "OMG Half-Shirt" have nothing to do with a player/recruit's potential. It only has to do with how good they look when they rock a no-shirt or half-shirt look. For example, if M-Rob chose to go shirtless here:
We'd be saying "OMG Shirtless" but he chose to mix it up and go half shirt. It doesn't mean he has less potential than Tebow...
WTFShirtless seems to apply mostly to alabama players for whatever reason.
Close. OMGShirtless came about back in the blogspot/sitemeter days. One day Brian was checking his referrals and discovered that someone had found their way to mgoblog by googling "Tim Tebow Shirtless" or "Tebow Shirtless" (I don't remember which). This was when Tebow was still a much-hyped recruit and not the college football savior that we all know him now to be.
I think it's only been within the last year that an actual shirtless picture of Tebow emerged, finally fulfilling the prophecy.
While I fear his future presence on the field and perpetual eligibility, I still laugh whenever Tacopants comes up.
oh my god, every time I hear the word "tacopants" I just bust out laughing. One of, if not the best, terms ever invented and perfect for describing the particular situation.
Legendary Mgoblog term. Every time I read it I laugh.
I recall I had to explain to my wife what I meant when I was watching last season...
There was a missed pass.
My response: "fcuking tacopants..."
Wife: what the hell?
I am unsure she quite understood the application of a fictitious character as a causal factor in passing game inefficiency last fall.
Tacopants is a term that can bring a laugh every time.
and of course, year of the infinite dong punch
I don't know what it is but imitations of GBMW get me everytime BUT ALSO make me laugh everytime. No sugar coat.
Although saying it anywhere is gets confused looks
Also Brian's exclamation when reacting to the new look of Denard in his track picture "Sweet Jesus in a pickle bun!" I use that from time to time as well and it gets some chuckles, thanks Brian.
Was the word's Antonio Banderas edition?
Magnus - n. Someone who appears to be a cynical asshat, but is really just a shockingly frank person with accurate information and zero tolerance for ignorance.
Fred: "Dude, I thought my fantasy team would be lights-out 'cause of the research I did about the players, but Joe was a total Magnus to me and now I have to redo the entire thing."
Jim: "What an asshole."
Fred: "Maybe if he wasn't right."
Magnus, posting under multiple aliases is frowned upon.
I have no scruples.
Makes the 12 year old in me laugh every time.
Negbang and UNACCEPTABLE (only in all caps).
If I recall, the official credit would go to ChrisGoComment. RIP?
The post that originated it may be the funniest piece Brian has ever done.
I like when typos become the inside joke
when Nenrska joined the Big 10.
Indeed I was... Hopefully more (typos) to follow
and the well-meaning-fat-fingered individual types in "Dear Brain" instead of "Dear Brian."
And Brian will typically throw in a "(word -Ed.)" after it...
I still LOL at the "(Dave) Bandon" thread. Typo combined with unnecessary parentheses is just great.
aboverage = above average
Apparently your reading abilities are beloverage.
MGoLaughing so hard my sides hurt.
Negalanche. Saw that a couple times.
100% worst thing ever is funny because it is overtaken everytime by the next 100% worst thing ever.
Anytime anyone says pos-bang or neg-bang, they are ok in my book.
Oh shit! Here they come now!
augh -- the apostrophe....foul temptress!
But apparently the Reich is unconcerned with orthography.
I know it's not a term, but em0 cycle is a fascinating natural phenomenon. It's like the nitrogen cycle but hilarious.
1. He shits all over the board with meaningless additions.
2. Posters break him down, negging him until an eventual meltdown, otherwise known as decomposition.
3. The hilarious fruits of his meltdown benefit the masses in the form of comedy.
4. His banning results in the creation of a new em0 account, which eventually shits or dies again.
And if it's not him, the new person annoys the hell out of me. I'm pretty sure there's a secret Mgoblog Cabal out to get him.
its kb9704. Started like 5 conference alignment threads yesterday.
He makes the Em0 watch. Can be bumped up to a Em0 warning if depth charts for 2201 start popping up.
Sparty, No! is always entertaining.
But lifted from EDSBS, referring to any of Ron Zook's many memes, whether it be jet-skiing or calling him NAME REDACTED.
Also, (from EDSBS?) referring to Tim Brewster's OVERALL ENTHUSIASM FOR THE YOUNG MEN WHO ARE TRYING HARD TO WIN OUT THERE.
God knows they like to tweak Gopher fans at every opportunity.
...for some reason I always find it funny when Brian refers to him as "the Zooker"
again not sure if it originated here, but FUCK.SHIT.UP
The new kind of Ben and Jerry's.
Maybe not the best ever but I read it this morning and it gave me a good laugh
IMHE, IMHE is awesome.
no sugarcoat, no sugarcoat is an awesome term
Gueer. The first time seeing it was on this blog.
with all the "mgo-" phrases/words i find myself constantly throwing in "mgo-" before many words. such as:
"I'm going to start making the mgo-spaghetti."
"I don't know what the damn mgo-time it it is!"
"We'll probably go the the mgo-pool."
"What kind of mgo-beer are you getting?"
Edit: i don't do it intentionally, it just comes up...
Well I originally listed about 10 of my favorites, but people were negging me so I condensed it down to these two:
UPDATE: Alright, I just can't help myself ... a couple more:
a very useful concept when contemplating newly arrived wolverine players.
So this came from the mgoboard, but it didn't catch on here. Oddly enough, it's caught on amongst my fellow Aggie grad students though:
Dotting the i - Euphimism for a #2
First time I saw it was on Brian's one-time use of the Steven Colbert Blame Board.
Currently, as a diary tag, it encompasses the Decimated Defense Trilogy, and formerlyanonymous's hardball v. Northwestern preview, which: What?
Also, Brian's use of "which" before a complete thought (see above) has totally entered my writing.
I'll go with the alternate spelling of "Rodriquez."
1. Denard's specific element:
2. One from today, our favorite conference:
The Bog Ten
100 percent pure Columbian awesomeness is my personal favorite. When it comes to MGoBlog though, their are many to choose from.
not named [fill in the blank]."
also: "The Horror."
I am going to miss screaming, "RAGE" at the TV as Minor was flat trucking fools on one of his no-regard-for-personal-safety runs.
A close second is "Brandon Graham: Destroyer of Planets". I yelled that out when he crushed Winston and everyone in the room looked at me like I was a crazy person. It could have been because I was yelling at the TV, but whatever.
Honorable Mention: "Dude, wait. What?"
Nickname given to Carson Butler because of his unnatural athletic ability for a man of his size.
That still cracks me up, never heard of it till I signed in to chat during a game one Saturday.
Miami (Not That Miami)
Some other oldies but goodies:
Zoltan for Space Emperor. Love that name.
Who can forget the "otter" saga that brought us Big Will?
The otter is the "man whose name cannot be spoken", aka "Thor", aka the "guy in the directory who may or may not be going to Michigan" aka "The Big Jokester" aka "Cass Tech Hero" aka "The Soup Can of Destiny"
We will not mention his real name for it will cause Mass Hysteria, Panic, the Biblical Plagues of Egypt, destruction of precious recruiting and ranking status, and the Rapture where we who are the good and Champions of the West will face Lesticles and his evil army of undereducated 4th down bayou mutants. He is our modern day Candyman - if we say his name three times in a mirror, we will be attacked by a ghostly apparition that will haunt our running backs in Big Ten - SEC match ups for time and eternity.
Or - you can just go to the front page and scroll down approximately three Bryan Cook entries and you will find "The Otter" true identity. Good luck and god bless. And please - WHATEVER YOU DO - do not mention his real name to anyone, ever!
The "Illinois Illini (We're from Illinois!)" and the similar phrases used for Utah, Troy, and The St. Lawrence Saints.
The FAKE scale for 40 times
I'd give that 4 fakes out of five.
