Misopogan is Seth now.
Misopogan is Seth now.
Not sure if serious about Misopogon...
MGoShoe is back.
THE_KNOWLEDGE is still here, to the best of MY_KNOWLEDGE.
He was last seen on the TWENTY-FIRST of December to announce the winner of THE QUESTION, the TOP FRIEND, and the horribly vacant CO-SOARER
However, THE KNOWLEDGE did not make his promised SUGAR BOWL post. Thus, he has been AWOL for about a month and a half now, which is not enough to make the disappearence of such an illustrious figure a concern yet
The original "THE KNOWLEDGE" had no underscore. The original one posted far more often and seemed to really take it personally if you didn't believe his predictions (like Steve Sarkisian to replace Lloyd Carr).
I suspect "THE_KNOWLEDGE" is just some other poster spoofing the original.
For me, WolvinLA1.
But not WolvinLA. That guy was a douche.
I almost feel like I should duck while saying this, but... Dex. I know he's moved onto greener pastures (and unicorns) but, while sometimes polarizing, he was hilarious.
Dex was a rad dude, and a very very good writer. I look forward to the one or two times a year he posts something at the WLA
I just don't see much from that guy anymore...usually had interesting things to say.
In all seriousness, Big Boutros...I dont remember if he was that good of a poster, but had a funny avatar that fit his name perfectly
That is who I was thinking of as well.
To the other poster bringing up mgoshoe he is still here just not as much. See the Act of Valor thread.
Agree 100% about Big Boutros. I'm a married man and yet could not pass a post without staring at the avatar for a few seconds.
but it's a lot less frequent than it used to be. I'd say TomVH and Tim as well. I like to think they come lurk, but probably have stipulations in their contracts about participating here.
I also think that the_Knowledge might just be a pseudonym that Brian uses because he thinks the original was so funny
wolverine318, he was a cool dude.
His avatar was awesome.
Hmm. Professor X joined up right when Wolverine318 disappeared...
WHY DIDN'T YOU PUT "META" IN THE TITLE OF THIS THREAD?!?!?!?!
I miss Dex. And MGoObes. And G_Simmons or whatever his handle was.
Did he graduate or something? I still say he was one of the players... GUY KNEW IT ALLLLLLL.
Nah, he didn't even go to Michigan. He was just an avid reader of Scout, from what I gather.
If he made you promise not to rat him out, just say so Magnus. Don't patronize us.
He made me promise not to tell you that he's actually Martavious Odoms.
Speaking of Lego Martavious Odoms, I've been dragging my feet with the realization that it may very well be time to retire the Lego avatar.
But then what? I still have a Lego Vince, a Lego Roh and Lego Denard somewhere... or should we go with something a little more Blockham, if you know what I mean...?
You should use all the family members and rotate every couple of months. Start with Bonnie when she woke up in the middle of the night after the bowl victory. My wife laughed so hard at that one when I showed her b/c our son pulled the same thing that night.
If you make me a Lego Kate Upton, I promise I'll make it my avatar.
Make mine a Lego Miranda Kerr, please.
But not for the reason you think . . .
Classic. Obes was so "in the know - underground - cooler than you" he was great. He was like Magnus & aaamichfan's lovechild.
There was something ever so comforting about an Obes post. It's like we'd be having our biweekly meltdown over something or other and Obes would say something very calming to make the latest crisis much less crisis-y.
I miss jhackney and his nuclear explosions.
HARD EDGE WEEK! Yes I miss jhackney as well.
I miss the late night threads that he used to create. Being the the west coast those late night threads were perfect for me.
Thirded or fourthed or whatever.....Sure do miss seeing those nuclear (nucleer) blasts and especially the one with Slim Pickens riding the big one down on Roossia from "Dr. Strangelove!"
A'freakin men. He kinda disapeared after Rich Rod was fired. Too bad I miss the nuclear explosions.
He'd be my number one pick. He was still doing his wacked out diaries once a week during the season. But those late night threads were often due to some extra free time, and I think he got a job in Michigan that had him moving from Pittsburgh, and duh, working, so the free time went away. But the bowl season wasn't the same without him. Thank God we were at least in a bowl to distract from the pain.
King of Belch and his many incarnates, and the Big triplets: Big Boutros, Big Redacted, and Big House 500th. Big Redacted was in need of a hug, some Xanax or both. Steve Sharik; he was the reason I joined the blog in the first place. I entered a state of MGodepression when jhackney and 'Shoe disappeared.
"Roll Damn Tide, you ain't goin' nowhere. Step back from the fence!" *racks shotgun*.
Easily the dude I miss the most. When I first arrived he was one of the first who actually realized I existed, so I took notice to that for sure.... But the guy had a great delivery that was both hilarious and intelligent at the same time.
BCRE is no longer among us. His haterism will be missed by some. Not many, mind you... but some.
Did he leave of his own accord, or was he booted? When he wasn't ranting about something, he usually had good insights on things.
...by someone well above me on the food chain. He seemed like a bright and articulate guy or girl (okay, guy), but his constant Drew Sharp-ness finally wore out his welcome.
Was this recent? I feel like I've seen a post of his in the last week...or is that BRCE?
Typo. I meant BRCE. And yep, it was last week I believe.
I think if we're going to keep this post-moderating system, we should at least change the karma values to 2, 1, and BRCE in honor of the guy who could always be counted on to have grayed-out posts.
That dude loved trolling. His work during the Tigers' playoff run was just too much. He would be all over a thread if they were losing, but when they won or looked good there was not a post to be found.
You're in the legal profession, no? In that case, you should know that the key to success in corporate America is stealing the credit when someone else does something good. AKA this. Just let us surmise that you were the one to give him the boot next time
KuaiGirl.... or is that too old school? ;-)
WolvinLA1 and Formerlyanonymous was good mod. Jhackney was usually pretty funny too.
WolvinLA1 was just the former handle of WolvinLA2. It's just that the former moniker disappeared for some unknown reason. They're the same guy, though.
Yeah, what happened to FA? I thought he was a mod. Mods aren't supposed to just leave. Mods are forever.
