"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

The "article" is a disservice to everyone involved. It is short and shallow.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||If he drops to the late||
If he drops to the late lottery it may be better for his career. I doubt this affects his stock much. His struggles lately on the court are a different matter.
|1 year 41 weeks ago||Both parties look bad after||
Both parties look bad after an incident like this one. Smart should have kept his cool. He should be suspended. The superfan looks bad and should be barred from attending games. This isn't his first incident and he isn't attending pro games. He shouldn't be getting involved with amateur athletes.
|1 year 43 weeks ago||When does the phrase mean||
When does the phrase mean what people think it means?
(% of pop misuing term or phrase) x (# of years misused) = New meaning/additional meaning officially added
Perhaps a result of 5 or above should be the benchmark. If 50% of users use a term incorrectly for 10 years then .5x10=5 and a new meaning is added to the definition.
I'm sure an interested and industrious fellow could create a proper equation or link to one that already exists.

You don't have to agree with people being offended by swear words but you should be able to comprehend the position.
|2 years 5 weeks ago||The board has been too||
The board has been too bi-polar lately. It seems every thread is filled with idiotic insults toward thing X or idiotic support for thing X.
How do you have a sports discussion with no criticism?
|2 years 8 weeks ago||Would it kill you to show||
Would it kill you to show respect to other posters on the board? You managed to throw an insult into almost every one of your posts in the discussion you were having. The other poster committed no offense other than disagreeing with you. He could make the same brick wall comment about you.

^This. Regardless of which side of which argument you fall on.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Can that conversation stay in||
Can that conversation stay in the other thread? Take Mr. Brown's post for what it is and leave it at that.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Boeckman was not mediocre. He||
Boeckman was not mediocre. He was awful. There is also a reason teams don't throw the Hail Mary every down. The desperation play can work but rarely does.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||No one playing for Michigan||
No one playing for Michigan is a kid. Also, criticizing is not the same as being disrespectful.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||My unsolicited advice is for||
My unsolicited advice is for you to take a minute and do some research (how interviews work whether entertainment or not) and then take another minute and flesh out what discussion you are actually trying to have. If you want to have a real discussion you might also want to leave out statements such as "...I do know that NCAA football is little more than indentured servitude." Those comments lead down different paths than what you appear to want to discuss. Also, I am not trying to be a jerk.

You are delusional.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||I find Todd to be the most||
I find Todd to be the most disturbing character. Walt had his supposed good reasons to go down his dark path. He does awful things but appears to struggle through it. Todd doesn't seem to struggle through anything. He takes the bad thing that is happening in a given scene and takes it to a further extreme while also appearing to be a blank slate of emotion. Walt and the skindheads seem to understand what they are while Todd dosn't seem to be aware of how dark a path he has chosen.

|2 years 11 weeks ago||Perhaps the rest of the||
Perhaps the rest of the community reserves their concern for issues that are actually issues. You have worked yourself up over a harmless skit. If you find this skit border-line offensive then I don't see how you can visit MGoBlog at all. Many of the memes on this site stereotype other groups for comedic value. Your last four sentences or so make it seem as though you have never visited the site before.
You may also want to reconsider what the role of comedy is or can be in society.

The first school I thought of when I saw this was The U. A team's uniform should remind you of their school not another school.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||I wish I could upvote you.||
I wish I could upvote you. Your use of Semipro was perfect.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||I hope that this station||
I hope that this station doesn't turns out to be a good alternative. I expect it to be more of the same.
|2 years 15 weeks ago||But he's a New York Times||
But he's a New York Times Best Seller!
|2 years 15 weeks ago||Yes. People are constantly||
Yes. People are constantly ripping RCMB and the like for their low class approach but the OP isn't any better. Posts like that aren't exactly uncommon either.
Also, what is the point of posting Feel Free to Delete? The mods will delete a thread whether or not someone gives them the OK.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||I fail to see how 'ruin porn'||
I fail to see how 'ruin porn' is a moral issue. Detroiters, and possibly others in failing areas, are really sensitive about because obviously. No one else need feel guilt over the issue.
|2 years 16 weeks ago||I think it's lame even for||
I think it's lame even for the academies. The names are for the fans.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||The draft won't be||
The draft won't be entertaining either.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||I accepted his invitation as||
I accepted his invitation as well principally because he spent so much time being defensive about his opinion. Just give your opinion and have the confidence to move on.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||I don't have a problem with a||
I don't have a problem with a guy changing his mind before enrolling and attending classes and going to a different school. I don't have a problem with the LOI being non-binding until he actually gets on campus.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||Why are you trying to change||
Why are you trying to change the argument and bring chauvinism into the conversation? Have you run out of legitimate ways to defend your point of view? Also, the term girl is equivalent to the term guy in the world in which I live.
|2 years 17 weeks ago||If the rest of the lineup is||
If the rest of the lineup is doing well then there won't be a problem. If the lineup struggles...
Jhonny's range will always look bad to those that have eyes.

Are you Rod Allen? Range matters. Range at SS really matters.
