to play football, not to play trumpet
What's the point of the Recruiting Board if it's not updated weekly?
what's the point of you being a douche about it?
Please refrain from visiting mgoblog.com in the future. Thanks.
Hey man, Brian isn't Mr. Lebowski, man. He's the Dude. So that's what you call him. The Dude wakes up at 11AM and scratches his unmentionables and plugs in. He'll get to it, man. Until then you can sit there and just like, do your own thing. Have a Bud and a smile.
Wouldn't he need to have a "caucasian" to settle his nerves? It appears to me the OP has no frame of reference here. He's like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie and wants to know...
forget weekly. I want that thing updated in real time with notifications sent to my phone
I'm not tech savvy enough - I know that if you sign up for RSS it will put the new front paged items in it, but then I just check my reader just as often. Is there a way to get your phone to send you a notification when something gets posted on the front page? If there's a board post about this I'd appreciate a link to find it. Thanks!
You could follow mgoblog on twitter and get updates sent to your phone.
As long as we putting in requests, I would like to know the recruiting class for the next 10 years...or maybe that is a little too Lane Kiffin
What's the point of you posting this? It's obviously bugging everyone else, too.
if you are trying to get your recruiting crack fix at mgoblog. This is a UM sports blog and a community.
Tom gives great content. FOllow him on twitter if you need to and subscribe to GBW or Rivals if you need up to the second recruiting info.
You want premium recruiting info for free............... Beveled Guilt is calling your name.
I agree, I think every single thing a recruit says should be texted to me. I mean its recruiting in August. Everything that happens now is so important.
it's like a fluid reference point...just wait for the VanHaaren updates and the weekly recruiting article and once in a while go outside or do something else...
Seriously settle down!
Plus the idea of being that into the status of high school football players is a little creepy, that you have to know their status on a daily basis.
Read the posts, follow the great work by Tom, and you will have all of the information you need.
It's creepy to want an easy reference point for recruiting updates, but reading posts and tweets about recruiting is not creepy?
If you donate money, someone will update the board. Why haven't you donated money weekly?
I don't see why this is an unreasonable question. If the board is up, it should probably be maintained. If it's too much work for not enough value return, just kill it.
It's unreasonable because obviously "The Impaler" knows Fisher and Posada are both blue and that the others are off the board (Hayes). It will be updated eventually - it's a dumb, nitpicky request by him.
but if updating the recruiting board a "bit" more frequently would keep semi-regulars from only posting 10 new "what's the status of So-And-So" posts as opposed to the 20 a week we get now, I say crack that whip on Tom & Tim's asses! (figuratively of course, you sickos)
actually, what I think he is saying is that since he knows about these players and they aren't updated, how can he be certain about the other players who havent committed and that he doesn't have much info on.
I keep checking when Tim posts it's been updated and it hasn't, so forgive Impaler for asking. (Or maybe I'm misinterpreting the comment in Tim's post yesterday as being a specific notice of updating rather than a general reminder: "Remember, all-time updates can be found on the 2011 Michigan Football Recruiting Board.")
Naturally it doesn't have to be updated on our schedule, but I thought I'd read something about a glitch in the Board post and was just wondering, since it's looked the same now for several weeks.
I think we just found the guy who's gonna update the recruiting board daily,
There's a big difference between:
"Hey Brian, do you plan to keep the recruiting board updated?"
"I am not trying to be a dick, but Posada and Fisher are not blue. Bryant doesn't have an offer. Justice Hayes is still green. These are a few examples. Why have it if it is not updated consistently?"
I didn't ask the first question because I obviously know he doesn't plan to keep the recruiting board updated since it has been the same for quite some time.
Oh what's that, you didn't pay anything? Then your expectations suck.
But seriously is it Sept. 4 yet?
Link us to it when you are finished. Most will thank you for providing a free service. One or two dicks will complain that you don't update it often enough.
Yeah, I can't really disagree with the OP. The board is pointless unless it's frequently updated.
However, I'm not saying I need it to be updated because, as others have said, TomVH/Tim's posts provide all the information you need. It just seems kinda superfluous.
The "Not-To-Be-A-Dick" lead-in has been used enough on these boards to merit its own acronym.
I love how everyone defends brian like I am attacking him. Some of you have realized that the Recruiting Board is not updated and mention that is should be removed for lack of maintenance.
but I like where you're going with this.
Edit: Sorry, that was supposed to be a reply to Tom Selleck.
NTBAD but no one likes you.
We like your style. There are many people like you here. Please consider changing which collegiate team you affiliate yourself with and join us.
Telling him to sell his soul to the devil.
i have realized that it is not updated. i have also realized that as we get closer and closer to real events happening, there are probably a few more important things to do than to semi-concretize the decisions, leanings and inuendo of 18 year olds 6 months prior to signing day. between "hello" posts, "the game" posts, the up-coming "know thine enemy" post, YESTERDAY's recruiting post, YESTERDAY'S friday night lights post, Twolf-gate, daily coach and player presser coverage, unverified voracities and all the other miscellaneous tidbits, i am very happy and satisfied with the level of MGoBlog's free service. i don't think you realize how much goes into this.
this is the equivalent of watching your chickens fuck so that you can count your eggs before they hatch.
What the hell is "I am" ? The correct usage for this type of rant is "Imma". Didn't Kanye teach you anything?
I do have to spend some time at work doing work. Some peoples lives may depend on it. Literally. Sometimes I miss something or just plain forget stuff. I agree with Impaler that it would be nice if it were a little more up to date. It's nice to have, even if it's not completely current, but I would love to see it current.
And yet you succeeded admirably, against all odds.
There are various websites out there. You can't expect Brian and Co. to be everything you've ever wanted. If you want to update it, maybe Brian will let you. If you want to make your own recruiting board, go for it. If you want to see who exactly has been offered and such, go elsewhere. Subscribe to Rivals or Scout.
But this post was kind of lame.
this doesn't come off as offensive, unless you don't know that this is largely a labor of love?
if he had emailed that post verbatim to Brian (which in hindsight he probably should have done); he would have received a nice response in return probably saying something to the effect of . . "yeah our bad, we've been a little busy, will get to it as soon as we can."
no attacks, no excuses, no "why don't you find another website and STFU."
Stop menstrating and start practicing your victory dance for Sept. 4th.
The bears can smell the menstruation!
Go to SB Nation. Find a site that provides 80% of the content Brian and Tim do. Realize that site doesn't have to perform its own maintenance, doesn't have a board, diaries, points, etc. Be grateful for what you have.
