Why isn't this article a thread? :
Flamebait? This article was posted 38 minutes ago by ACE. I do not see it anywhere else on the blog, including the Lequon Treadwell thread. ACE proclaims that he is for sure going blue. That has not happened before. The title is a Jerry Maguire refrence. This blog is Big Brother masquerading as a sport blog.
I legitimately never knew there was a difference. I'm sorry
Ace Williams is RDT
Just a piece of friendly advice....avoid Ace WILLIAMS on this blog, but go ahead and read Ace ANBENDER. Also, referring to the people that run this blog as "big brother" is not going to endear yourself to anyone.
Any reference to Ace Anbender should have a "YTA" ("Yes That Ace") and any reference to the other Ace should be "NTA".
How about we never mention Ace Williams after this? Okay. Cool.
Also - bitching about your moderation only gets you more negative moderation. Take your negs like a man and move on.
Can we bitch about others' ratings? For example: WTF! WOLVINLA2'S COMMENT ONLY GET A "NORMAL". IMO IT WAS VERY INFORMATIVE, AND SHOULD THEREFORE RECIEVE AN "INFORMATIVE" RATING. FUCK U GUYZ!
Im new to posting on this board... Do just mods neg you? Or do posters as well? Maybe with a certain number of points?
I'm the guy in charge of negs. If you buy me a beer or a hooker or something you're in the clear for a while. If you piss me off then I make you my bitch forever. Good luck, soldier.
I love it when a post perfectly matches the poster's avatar.
newbies get beat to shit on here for awhile. Anyone can neg you, but the moderations don't change your point total, you just get points when you post.
Also, best to avoid even talking about points, 'cuz you'll get bombed...but like I said, you're new. You have a ton of stuff to learn, like a bazillion acronyms, some of which you may only see on this board. For example, HOTTDB = "Hold on to the damn ball!" (born 2008, I think).
Rules of MgoBlog:
1. Do not talk about MgoPoints.
2. Do not talk about MgoPoints.
But, you just ... I think ... I mean, didn't you ...
Ace Williams is a hack.
Comes outta left field there but I can't disagree that hell be really good. Maybe tossing the ball to MegaQuon ( you heard it here first) this week will change that answer.
Not bad, but I fear TV guys coming up with some variation of "Quontum". Like if he hurdles a defender or grabs a jump ball, it'll surely be a "Quontum Leap". But hey, if he does those things, I'm okay with pretty much any nickname.
Semi OT - my iPhone has now stored the word "Quontum" in its memory.
Quontonium will now power us into the future.
it would have already been there.
I did hear it here first, and I undoubtedly approve. I feel this will catch on rather quickly.
Derrick Green, Mega-Quon, Leon McQuay *drools*
So many recruits, but only so many openings...
Good thing we used a scholly for that long snapper!!! I know, beating a dead horse... Just tough to know we might miss out on one of these guys for a LS
Not having to worry about any botched long snaps for four years is worth a single scholly IMO. You want to have the best players possible at every position, LS included!
That's why I'm not losing sleep over the David Dawson situation. I think in the end he will stay but if he does decide to go with UF then we already have great players recruited at the exact same position and we can maybe grab another skill position player. Needless to say, I hope and pray that he decides to stay with us because I really believe he is going to be a special player but I'm looking for the silver lining here...
Sorry for the doom and gloominess
Well according to his twitter they all ditched him and he's hanging out with the Florida recruits right now. Maybe instead of saying that he's not going anywhere they find him and help him see the light.
Wtf are you talking about?
Seriously flamebait? What is up with this place lately? Who or what was I flaming or bating with my post?
Go to your room.
If you're unaware, there aren't alot of ways to tag a down-vote. It's either flamebait, overrated, trolling, or redundant. Someone probably just didn't agree with you and downvoted you. Don't take the tags so seriously. And another piece of advice, don't complain about how your post gets moderated. Everybody's comments are downvoted from time to time and tagged with something they don't agree with. It happens. Get over it.
Even my posts get downvoted sometimes, and I'm the coolest cat around!
Stole my thunder.
I'm aware and I've been here much longer than my profilie created date would lead you to believe, I just think this is a very real and serious potential problem and people are burying their heads in the sand and pretending it doesn't exist. It's a frustrating situation but most people are just totally writing it off and even claiming it's some elaborate joke or that it's twitter-induced psychosis just because they don't understand the technology.
I think people fully understand twitter. But if you've been here for a while like you said you have been, you'd know that people overreact to tweets all the time. Can't overanalyze something that an 18 year old kid types into his phone. Twitter is very useful, but it's not a source of intimate knowledge - especially when dealing with young people. It should be taken with a grain of salt.
OMG OMG OUR RECRUITING CLASS IS GOING TO FALL APART AND WE WILL HAVE 0 COMMITS IF DAWSON TWEETS ONE MORE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!
Are you trolling here because mlive is down today or what?
Who's trolling? I'm trying to talk about one of our better recruits being obviously unhappy and potentially looking elsewhere. I'm not saying our class is going to fall apart, I'm talking about one player. And I'm not reading between the lines or trying to read into what he is saying, he's been quite clear with what he is saying. Continue ignoring it if you want but don't act surprised if he goes elsewhere. I don't know why nobody wants to talk about this (well I know why but the level of actively trying to ignore it is bizarre) or pretend it's not happening. Keep thinking it's a big elaborate ruse though if that makes you feel better, I'll stick to reality thank you.
Either way, I will move on. I really don't mean to threadjack or annoy people with the same thing over and over again and I apologize if that's the case. I won't say any more on the matter (unless something concrete comes out). Go Blue and fuck ohio.
I don't know why you are on mgoblog right now with this dire situation. You are wasting valuable time that you could be sending tweets to Dawson so he re-affirms his commitment and stops hanging out with those Florida kids.
I know you're kidding, but I can't stand people who tweet @ recruits.
Shane says that no one from the class is leaving. I would guess that in the end we may lose a player but if he is not worried right now, then I am not either. I thinking waiting around for someone to de-commit will drive you crazy for the next 7 months.
