He was involved in a horrible head on collision with Wolverine in a Bag and both were tragically killed instantly.
Roll Damn Tide Explanation?
Good one RDT
Can one of the mods fix my formatting in the OP, I can't do It on my iPhone?
Oh wait! Oh no! Don't reply to this post until I change it!
There is this thing called a 'search bar'. It is up near the top of the page.
You are being a pretty big dick in this thread.
Really I just thought he was being informative.
Plus it's better then being a small dick.
do you want a hug? (serious question)
YakAttack is dead on.
From Wyoming"s posts usually seem to have a "dickish" tone to them most times. Dont sweat it.
it's all this fresh mountain air or something. it just makes me this way.
I always assumed you were from Wyoming, MI.
Just go to the top right search bar and type in: Roll Damn Tide (or RDT), crack a beer and enjoy.
Nick Saban was so impressed with all of his inside sources that he pulled him from the student body and put him in charge of recruiting.
I'm not falling for this again.
/cracks a beer...shakes head.
and reread that whole topic again and it was just as funny as the first time.
Now, can someone tell me the origin of 'Raback it'? :P
He's the only guy who has ever made a prediction on MGoBlog that ever came true*.
Other than all those people who said RDT had to be a fake.
(*Demar Dorsey committing)
RollDamnTide turned out to be a fake persona created by WolverineInABag. He was outed when he accidentally posted a comment from the former account that he had clearly intended to post from the latter account. Someone replied to the comment before he had a chance to delete it, preserving his embarassing sociological-experiment-gone-wrong for the MGoUniverse to mock for all eternity.
RDT is actually Nick Saban.
And Nick Saban is simply a character created by WolverineInABag.
I was traveling at the time of the RDT debacle. It took me about 45 minutes to disentangle that sad mess when I finally got back to a solid internet connection, but it was 45 minutes of well-spent entertainment.
Got it now. Funny
Kind of awkward after that
He was a damn strong LSU fan.
...He's Keyser Soze.
Spoilers! Dammit man, I was halfway through that movie.
My daughter was born hours earlier the day this went down. I was sitting in the hospital room winding down and checking MGoBlog while wife and baby were sleeping and stumbled upon the thread. What a great day!
Raback Omaba? Didn't you get banned?
I would like a RDT explanation as well, but from RDT/WiaB himself. What the hell was he thinking?
For the good of mankind I've put RDT's self-outing in the HOF. Why it wasn't there already, I have no idea, but I suspect it's a failure on the part of humanity itself.
on that one. Nicely done.
One jackass pretended to be another jackass so that people would love him, but he wasn't too bright, so now he's not loved and he's still a jackass.
Oh, and he interviewed his alter-ego for a blog, which just turned out to be him complimenting himself about how funny and knowledgable he was.
jackass references. Donkeys have feelings too, even the ones that have been pushed backwards for 10 or 15 yards.
My sincerest apologies, I wasn't aware donkeys were capable of using the internet. But then again, Herm seems to have mastered it and he's like 100 years old, so I'm not so surprised. It won't happen again.
Whoa whoa whoa!
Since when did Herm-bashing become acceptable?
a subordinate poster was into child porn, decided that it was best for the blog and his sterling, record-setting ambitions, that it was best not to report this to the authorities.
After setting the record for winning posts, his complicity in the cover-up was exposed and, unwilling to resign in mid-season, was fired from this blog last year.
He has since died, the statue erected in his honor taken down, and his record for winning posts here has been vacated. He now ranks 12th all-time on the blog.
At least that is the way I have heard it.
Too soon. / not really
that thread was hilarious.
wish i could have seen RDT/in a bag's reaction when he realized he posted under the wrong screenname.
Still among the most disappointing days in my entire life.
Guess I've lived a decent life though. Still hurts.
Your life must be amazing...
Yeah I pretty much read Batman comics while watching sports and drinking whiskey and wine when I'm not working.
You must not have a wife
They had them, but others have too. Thanks for paying attention to Madden 6 while others take care of it.
Don't want one at the moment. I'm 23 and cheap.
And I'm assuming that wives don't let you read Batman comics and drink at home alot? That is why there's like a 50% divorce rate in this country.
Hmm, are you "in need of an explanation of Spartan fans," too?
See Dear Diary of a few weeks ago: http://mgoblog.com/content/dear-diary-forges-more-perfect-union
...called well, Alabama. It is in a magic conference called the ESS EEE SEE. When the fans want their beloved footballers to win the MNC they all yell in unison, "Roll Damn Tide." Then the opposing fans in response all yell, "Around the rim and down the hole. War Damn Eagle." Then they all oversign and live happily ever after.
Even though you were being sarcastic, that was actually interesting. I never knew that.
Once this was all made public, my image of RDT/WIAB choosing which login to use for a given thread or post turned to something like this:
Left = RDT
Center = WIAB
Right = that AU poster a few days after the outing, or maybe a future LSU incarnation.
What I really want to know is who are the dudes in RDT's avatar? There's two random Kappa Sigma guys at their frat house in Tuscaloosa tonight unknowingly with their picture tied to a fake account on MGoBlog that will go in the MGoHOF for eternity.
he's probably here somewhere commenting on this thread
Hmmmm and how do we know it's not you?
He was mauled by a lion in a convenience store
The original RDT shows up.
ok everyone, I have a confession - I never understood why anyone cared about any of this, ever. it's the internet. tis a silly place.
And I'm totally mystified by the obsession with a single poster who wasn't even a Michigan fan.
Also, mystified by "cat breading." http://www.breadedcats.com/
CAUSE SHANE DESERVES TO BE MAGIC PIXIE ELITE 11 AND TRENT IS STOOPID
...bucky badger avatar with a MICHIGAN flag?
tis a silly avatar, but that's why it's on the internet, where it belongs. you see, it's a metaphor for me being a grad student at UW but still 'carrying' my Michigan pride for everyone to see.
Even if you go to another school for your masters, why would you ever stop being a Wolverine?
I almost went to state for grad school... how awkard would that be?
Instead I went cheap and went EMU
well that's the whole point. I still feel like I am a wolverine, even though on paper I'm now a badger. and it's a PhD! plus, for avatar purposes, there isn't a wolverine mascot, so Bucky works.
I was obsessed with that Farrah poster in the 70's AND I prefer my cat breaded, but only because it locks in the moisture. Cat is notoriously dry cooked any other way.
Except obsessed with his recruiting connections except his dogs.
Always thought the opinion from outside was cool but always wondered why. Now I get it. Rip rdt. Go blue!
It's water under the bridge man. Water under the bridge.
RDT Tim Tebow?
to the Hall-of-Fame. Hopefully this will reduce the number of questions about why he stopped posting a month ago.
who is this McFarlin guy everyone keeps talking about?
...you can't afford it".
Seriously though, McFarlin has become one of the most esoteric parts of the MGoLexicon because no one will explain McFarlin (for obvious reasons, once you know who McFarlin was) to those who ask.
Why is there not an MGoGlossary? I know the project has been tried before (in the HOF), but it's horribly outdated and its scope is terribly limited.
Chic-fil-A thread a bit earlier. That thread, however, was sent to Bolivia for reasons obvious to anyone who read the thread. However, the collateral damage is that we lost the damn RDT/WiaB explanation of why he attempted to dupe his Mgobrethren/sistren.
Mods, any chance you can just extract the RDT/WiaB reply and post it as a thread or diary? I am telling you, it will be Internet gold!
plus also that I got the first word in afterwards (just much less epic than in the original).
I have to see that!
And I came across this today:
The defense of RDT is hilarious in retrospect.
about asking and receiving? Anyway:
Ok, so I probably owe everyone an explanation. I'll give everyone the abbreviated version, to spare everyone the use of "I didn't read it, lol" images. Anyway, I grew up in a family deeply rooted in Alabama football. I come from a typical General Motors family, with one grand parent from Michigan, and the other from the south. Given this, I still have most of my Dad's side of the family in the south. I on the other hand, trended to my Mother's family's love of The Univetsity of Michigan, given that both my grandparents graduated from UM. My father being a graduate of the University of Alabama, followed a three generations of UA graduates. Like my father, my cousin (who began posting as RDT) is also an Alabama grad, who While he was still teaching, was an assistant for one of the better high school programs in the state. During this time, he met a lot of people associated in recruiting, and the guy knows his stuff. With that in mind, my original intent, was to start a recruiting blog, with a few other people I knew from around the country, and people my cousin knew. This plan got derailed when my wife got pregnant, and I came to the realization that I just wouldn't have time for it. I knew Mgoblog would be a great start for us to build up an interested fan base. With Greg (RDT) being a really funny guy, I suggested he start an account, and just start posting, he did and everyone enjoyed it. People will disagree with this, because of how it ended up, but Greg was right about everything he said, with the exception of Ty Isaac. As these things go, Greg got bored, and really stopped posting all together, except for a few things here and there. Then, RDT became a bunch of us, with us all having access to the account. A few people started noticing differences in the writing, from when he first started posting until then. Mark and Jay, who didn't really frequent Mgoblog (being Illinois guys) didn't know the forum rules, and would double post things quite a bit. Then came my infamous post mistake from my phone, when I was on both mine and rdt's account. From there I'm sure you all know the rest. This is the Internet, so I don't expect anyone to believe this. With that bring said, I'm going to post a video with all of us that will launch the blog we're starting next week. Even though a lot of you are ticked off at me, but if you liked Greg's writings on here, you'll enjoy our blog. Again, I'm sorry, I never meant to mislead anyone, but when RDT took off like wild fire, it didn't make sense for any of us to keep posting ourselves.
This was followed by everyone's predictable responses about trust and getting a life and whatnot, so WIAB posted this as a reply:
Extremely long work weeks, a wife, and a 6 month old don't allow me a great deal of time. Like I said, you can believe anything you want, I have nothing to hide. The reason I didn't post sooner, is that like I was taught in the army, you always want to stand at least 75 yards away from something that is about to explode.
Now I respect him even less.
And was one of his many friends Willhouse?
