EDIT - I posted this originally when I hadn't seen Ace's original "cringeworthy" tweet, which I kind of agree is, while mild, an overreaction to any otherwise throwaway comment by Morris.
This thread's OP and a couple others here are overreacting but I disagree that Ace did.
Ace just cleared the record in a "nope, that's inaccurate" kind of way.
If we have to read a post tomorrow that's taking Shon Morris to task or calling him an asshole, that's the overreaction and fits in with the "I must be outraged 24/7" culture some folks have become accustomed to.
|15 weeks 3 days ago||formulatic and a caricature of itself||
When Mike and Mike first began airing, I enjoyed it very much and liked the banter and obvious differences between the Mikes.
Eventually, I thought the show became extremely formulatic and a caricature of itself. It was as if they were just following the same recycled "brainy metro guy vs. gregarious dumb jock" plotline.

Did anyone catch the play where the blitzer just bounces off Wilton during a TD pass?
I was expecting to see it Gif'd but apparently did not make the cut.
The basic setup is, during one of Wilton's TD passes, he was being blitzed and just as the camera pans to the receiver (Darboh?), you can see the blitzer bounce off Wilton and he just kind of glances at him in the way I would look at a leaf that blew into me. I haven't had the chance to go back and try to find on my own (I expected here!).
Did anyone else catch this?

Sounds like the players are ready to demonstrate what it looks like to have some steel in the spine.
I can't wait to see the team unleash the fury!!!!

Write your congress person and have them take it up with Samsung / Android!!!!

I will patiently await the McCray as unsung lynch pin of the defense article.....

is anyone suggesting 500% is reasonable?
|1 year 11 weeks ago||offense helps defense||
its not so much Lavert's defense (other than situational 1-3-1) that is going to boost the overall defense as it is going to be the offensive boost he'll bring.
We've seen it enough with the football team over the last decade, if the offense fails quickly, our defense pays th price.
When we finish possessions with more makes (because Caris back), our defense will improve inherently by forcing opposing offense to generate in the 1/2 court.

it snowed in alabama during the last week, therefore global warming is false.

He also has thrown a td pass!

If you don't mind my asking, how old are you?
I'm 32 and this 100% happened (save for the bullet shells) when I was growing up in Little League baseball.
It was essentially the masculine equivalent of "Toddlers & Tiaras" style beauty pageants where the has beens and never was beens live out their failed or distant fantasies through their little boys.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||By the way....||
Norfleet by the way is still unfortunately touchdown-less in his career BUT he threw for one a couple weeks ago. Dual Fleet?
Your comment reminded me to go give his stats a look.

Can anyone teach Jamie how to pronounce the name of the great state of Oregon (Orygun)?
Gets me every time.

|1 year 42 weeks ago||Anywhere you find a person with "power" over another....||
How widespread is this? Anywhere you find people.
This is not limited to FSU football players, football players in general, men, women, etc.
These are all the same power / control / entitlement issues that surface in physical assaults, rapes, online trolling, etc. due to the way we socialize people and the history of our society.
People in this thread will be happy to mention that "men should never hit a woman" but they'll accept a man attacking another man.
In my head, even the acceptance of man on man violence, is only going to teach the men who attack that physical violence is how you assert your power / control, etc. and asking them to show restrain against women is unlikely to yield in any meaningful behavior changes.

Get a life. At least WD is out there living his life and not just sitting on a forum shitting on others'.
|1 year 46 weeks ago||Internet porn||
My first reaction is surprise that an 8th grader may have never seen porn before in this day in age.
Is the problem that some 8th grade girl has seen girl on girl porn? That this girl is bisexual?
It's not clear to me where the crisis is.
|1 year 48 weeks ago||To be fair...||
To be fair, DISCUSS Man is a second rate poster and has been a joke of a poster for likely their entire existence on this blog.
So that may help explain the difference in tone between Narduzzi, Franklin, and the OP.

I wish you wouldn't post negative things about UM players, especially underclassmen on public forums.
|2 years 20 weeks ago||Pelini's rise to HC at NU||
Has anyone ever looked at Pelini's career on wikipedia?
His entire career has been spent working for about 8 different accomplished successful coaches. Even when he was on a high school staff it's for one of those known program sorts.
His pedegree is much more impressive than I would have guessed.

I use VLC Player: http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html
Then Media -> Open Network Stream and paste in the URL I originally posted

|2 years 24 weeks ago||makes sense||
It makes sense that a 2011 hype video would use highlights from 2010.
|2 years 31 weeks ago||not the nfl||
this isn't the nfl. nor alabama.
there are other standards at michigan. i believe they contained within the "fergodsakes".
|2 years 31 weeks ago||Thanks for speaking up||
Glad to hear there's atleast a handful of fans who feel the way I do.
Keep the faith.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||my guess||
trey : spike :: stauskas : robinson
the complicating factor is the whole vague references to d1 offers he turned down.
i wish they would have named names.
i dont know how meaningful it is, we talking the likes of portland state and iupui or what?
|2 years 45 weeks ago||My guess....||
My guess is that 90 pct of Mgoblog users want to read or write about michigan football.
did you expect the team to receive a win for you visiting the site?
|2 years 48 weeks ago||Cannibalization is killing HTTV||
For me, I'm not purchasing HTTV this year because I think the blog has cannibalized the content that HTTV would normally contain.
With each year, the amount of new content on this blog has increased (as has my year round viewership of it) and by the time HTTV rolls around, I feel like it's predominately a printed (and repurposed) export of the blog with just a sprinkling of brand new ideas / pieces.
I should clarify that last year was the first time I had this feeling and this year will be the first time I'm not purchasing HTTV (won't stop me from dropping some coins into beveled guilt).
My father, who does not read MGOblog (or the internet in general) would be thrilled with HTTV as it truly does destory all other "preview" publications and he has no access to the content otherwise.
Just my thoughts. Niether team performance nor alleged bullying from Brian (or whatever the claims) play into my decision at all.
