Watching the Lions vs. Steelers (worst throwback unis ever) game and waiting for the MBB game. So, why not? My offering: Fire Borges still reigns. Dileo safe at second. A win we will take.
Sunday Snowflake/Haiku Before ISU Game Thread:
Basketball is good
Football not so much fire Borges
Nine points not enough
Modding was easy
No banning, no incidents
I am pleased right now
With a win comes hope
A glimmer of salvation
Now, Iowa City
If the season ended today, I would be in favor of major changes on the offensive coaching staff. I think Hoke deserves a couple more years given the talent he is bringning in and the number of wins over the past 3 years.
That being said, the season is not over yet and I look forward to seeing what kind of improvements can be made over the next couple of weeks and over the break before the bowl game. We have a very young roster and I think the next month and a half will really show what this staff can do in terms of player development.
Fall day victory
Shine hides for a moment the
Bloated rough beneath
Trey Burke will be missed. Basketball season is nigh. We had subs, crazy.
Glenn can create shots.
Mitch may have a healthy back.
Hail Beilein and subs.
ISU is favored. It's a traveshamockery. LeVert is gonna teach everyone a lesson in ballography, ballonomics and advanced ballonometry.
Our offense blows chips
We suck and can barely score
Northwestern sucks more
Does Barely have 2 or 3 syllables? I've always wondered that. You're implying 2, which I agree with, but I've heard it said with 3 also.
Only on MGoBlog. Sorry MGrowOld, but your first post had 8 syllables in the second line, now this? You Sir, are on double-secret MGoProbation.
Borges is one sylable so my second line was seven, not eight and barely is clearly two sylables (look it up)
So the Haiku Nazi's will just have to wait. My poems stand!
Bor*ges. The ruling on the field stands as called. 5 yard penalty; illegal haiku.
I'm always amazed at how much difficulty people seem to have with counting syllables on this website.
They ran the ball well.
But could not find the end zone.
Need some more whiskey.
"Now, Iowa City" = 6. Triplesecretmoderatorprobation for you.
MaizeMn cannot count
Borges is one sylable sir
Barely at three no
How do you pronounce Borges? I cannot think of a plausible pronunciation that makes it 1 syllable.
Phonetic (in my mind):
Bore - Jis
"If he dresses, he will play."
-JB... Fantastic sign... Hopefully he is 100% and we aren't rushing him into the spot
If this pic is from the warm UPS, Mitch will play. Belein said that if Mitch is dressed, he will play. Can't link on phone, but that quote is from belein on Friday, and can be found at the umhoops website, in their "presser" article.
if that pic is valid, id suggest you make a thread saying McGarys gonna play. Doubt he plays a lot, but Belein doesn't lie about these things.
Dammit, spelling cops. Also must be on alert. Syllable misspelled.
Mcgary will play
Good things will happen tonight
GR alley oop
Not just a shooter.
Stauskas can drive, dish and dunk.
That is game. Blouses.
Caris will convert. John Beilien's team will assert. Game we win, GO BLUE!
Basketball won't help.
This picture from my roomate
He is at the game.
Has there been any talk of doing Blyve live blogs for basketball games this season? Or are we just sticking with open threads?
he did show in plays so Dave
less email this week
More than a Shooter
I Hear that Announcer Say
More than a Shooter
basketball today. and football was yesterday. what's on tomorrow?
Robinson needs to make better decisions... a couple bad choices by Walton, but he's young and you'll have that.
Stauskas and LeVert playing well, McGary's presence is obvious.
