Running Backs? Pfft. (did not pick a RB until the 5th round, ended up with Mendenhall and Mark Ingram as my starters. Yikes.)

Can't wait to read this one. It's the first book I've purchased since college, when I, you know, had to buy books.

If the virus hides all your files, there's a utility called unhide.exe that you can get from bleepingcomputer.com that will un hide them. First you'll need to download and run malwarebytes, possibly in safe mode, to get rid of the thing.

I got two warnings when I opened up TomVH diaries that my AV (Avast) had blocked a file from downloading. Definitely something on mgoblog, probly an ad.

I played against him in high school, he was a freshman my senior year and I know some younger guys who played and wrestled against him. Pretty much every D-1 caiber player from South Dakota ends up in Iowa, i.e. Chad Greenway, Reiff, and Brandon Wegher, so the Hawkeyes are a distant second favorite of mine in the Big Ten.

The OP said, "Have you students read the crime reports around here? Justin Feagin couldn't avoid it. Can we just be transparent and say that we really want him because he is really good and will help us win football games. If you are a Michigan football fan thats all you truly care about in this situation. Stop acting like there is another reason that some of you are going out of control about this situation."
The Feagin situation is irrelevant, and the OP knows it (or should). The OP also claims that fans only care about his possible impact on the football team, which is also untrue. Yes we want him because of his talent, but we also believe in honoring commitments to players and helping young men develop as a person. At least I believe that and I would go so far to say that Rich Rodriguez and his staff do to.
The OP paints a picture of Michigan fans being cutthroat and caring only about on-the-field impact. This is unsubstantiated at best and at worst is unture, and based completely on opinion and devoid of fact, just like the Freep.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||On par with the Freep||
Truly, your post is the type of quality I would expect out of the Detroit Free Press. Because Justin Feagin blew a second chance does that mean we don't give another one to anybody else? I believe in second chances and at the very least think Demar is worthy of getting the second chance he was promised, regardless of whether he deserves it.
Would I want him if he wasn't a good football player? No, I wouldn't.
Would I want him if he was a great football player but the coaching staff thought he didn't have the character to play at Michigan? Again, no I wouldn't.
But that's not the case, he is a good player who the coaches did their homework on and felt he deserved a second chance. Let him in.

Was that a Ghostbusters reference? If so, you left out mass hysteria.
|5 years 6 weeks ago||Oh my God, you're right!!||
Because a small minority of students can't write effectively, the entire student body is unintelligent! I get it now! Thanks so much for your insight and for clearing that up for me. Clearly when the university outscores Ivy League schools on a regular basis on the EXACT same test its just a recurring fluke and not indicative of the student body's intelligence as a whole.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Yeah, I do||
The ETS exam, which I refer to, is a widely accepted and used exam to gauge the success of a student's undergraduate learning, including schools like Penn, Stanford, and the University of Chicago.
I don't know what else to tell you, a handful of students struggle to write effectively at every school, and Terrelle Pryor is one of them. Not the worst writer in the world, but definitely needs a LOT of tutoring.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||So having some students who||
So having some students who struggle to write effectively more substantially supports the idea that the school has "the dumbest students" than outscoring 95% of the nation on a comprehensive test? By scoring in the upper echelon of schools nationally, I make the claim that the school must not be full of idiots, thereby refuting fatbastard's claim to the contrary.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||fatbastard||
Fatbastard, who said USD has dumb students.
|5 years 7 weeks ago||Right||
A school whose business students place in the top 5% nationally is full of idiots.
Anything else you want to comment on? Make sure you focus on something of which you have no knowledge or understanding, that way you can stay consistent.

... as shitty as this paper is, its not that far from a lot of freshman papers I've read. I've proofread and corrected a lot of papers that are worse than this that were written by non-athletes.

As Far As I'm Concerned
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Fair enough.||
I have no background in the field, so I'll take your word for it.
But I must say, he is constantly negative on everything. Even when I read the OT thread on XBox 360s, there he was, somehow bitching about Rich Rodriguez. When a guy can turn XBox 360s into something negative, I feel like he's being purposefully inflammatory. Like I said, I looked at his posts, and he's unwaveringly negative about everything. You would think he would have something good to say about SOMETHING... sometime... at some point.
Irritating? Definitely. Bannable? I guess maybe not.

Upset enough to post about it. Aside from the hosts' of the site material, the primary asset of the site is the input of the users, and this particular user is a serious detractor from the quality of the site.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Best Post Ever||
I've never seen so much horseshit in one post. You sir, have a talent. I don't think anyone can cram so much stupidity and negativity into one post the way have done.
22 (well actually 23, but who's counting... well... everyone but you is counting, but I digress) is a small sample size. Which is why I noted that in the original post.
Also, how is it you haven't been banned? -813 points and you're still here? Clearly you have nothing to add other than ALL CAPS and GODRIGUEZ SUCKS!! and an incredible ability to ignore all logic and fact and base what you write on hyperbole and knee-jerk reaction.

"You can't say that your prediction was based on intellect and objectivity while those of everyone who disagreed with you were based on emotion and subjectivity."
I didn't say everyone else's was based solely on emotion and subjectiviy. Clearly you didn't fully comprehend the meaning of the post. The large swing in projections from 6-6 or worse to 9-3 or better indicates, in my opinion, a prediction based on emotion and subjectivity. Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Indiana, and Delaware State along with a good win over Notre Dame preseason wouldn't have made everyone say "No way we're finishing worse than 8-4." If it wasn't emotion than what was it? If the prediction of 2/3 of the board wasn't based on calm objectivity than what was it?
The majority of us (as I illustrated) predicted 6-6 or worse during the summer, when there was no emotion. When there was emotion involved, expectations flew up to 8-4 at worst and possibly 9+ wins. Based on emotion. PSU and Illinois brought us back down to Earth like Jake Brown at the XGames. We saw how painful it was going to be on the way dowm, cringed as we looked on, and lamented that we could only watch.
As far as you believing I inferred some kind of superiority to other members on the board, I don't know how anyone could feign superiority when over 2/3 of the people predicted the same thing I did. I knew nothing they didn't.
To everyone who didn't agree with me, fully 1/3 of the board, its not like they were that far off. We were very close to beating MSU and Iowa, and with a little more luck we could be 7-2. Beat the team we should beat, Purdue, and lose to Wisky and OSU and we're 8-4 and they would be right.
Don't confuse being objective and calm and making the same prediction as over 2/3 of the board as lucky.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Negative Trend||
That's something I didn't touch on but probably should have.
I had predicted a finish of 2-3 with a win over Penn State. In hindsight, that upset prediction was flat-out stupid. So, my realistic prediction sans stupidity means a 1-4 finish. Which looks bad, but it is (or should have been) what we expected.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||I don't have the points||
So I can't make my own diary or forum topic. But basically, I have to reiterate, THIS IS WHAT WE EXPECTED when no emotions were involved this past summer.
In a diary where most people agreed with me, I said we would go 6-6. So far I've been wrong (sort of) about Notre Dame, where I gave us a 45% chance but said ND would win, and about Penn State, where I thought we would pull an upset.
The original post was http://mgoblog.com/diaries/realistic-2009-prediction
We're right where I and many others thought we'd be, albeit with a slightly better offense (at times) and a worse defense. The rampant panic and "FIRE RR" hysteria on today's CIL was sickening.
I wish I could give the OP more positive votes, we could use more calm thinking.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||You missed the point||
It was hidden behind the sentence where is said, "The point?"
The point being made the entire time that this team is improved, and should we finish 7-5 or so, we shouldn't be disappointed. It's not complicated.
I referenced the original post because, for the most part, the season has been going as many people, including myself, felt it would. Look at the comments on the original, I'm sure the majority of commenters were guessing 7-5, give or take a game.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Oops||
Don't know what the hell happened there, but maybe repetition will help get the point across.
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Exactly my point||
I predicted 6-6, so 2-4 down the stretch isn't a collapse (not that you said that specifically), 2-4 is just whats expected as the schedule gets harder and a very young team experiences growing pains. If we flipped our schedule around, started 2-4 and ended 4-2 everyone would be happy.
Keep a level about it and you'll see this is a team with a lot of talent offensively, despite youth, and a lack of talent/depth/experience on defense.
I know people will freak out regardless, but hopefully a few people understand 2-4 finish would be because of our youth and our opponents' talent level.
