Any more than one post on this would be fruitless: Check any thread and its voting details: he's almost always the first responder, usually within 15 minutes and definitely within the hour. He tries to be the n00b whisperer, rather than letting people learn to fend for themselves and google/wikipedia/MGosearch for themselves, which he should know all about...since the bulk of his posts are unoriginal copy/pastes of things he's taken the unnecessary time to look up and post here. Just by looking at a thread title I can tell if it'll have 10 posts from him (anything having to do with hockey, softball, or an autistic liking for rules/policy/rankings) before opening it.
I noticed these things because after two years of it, you have to investigate the source of your suffocation. I think he's a volume poster and is on MGoBlog too much, too often, and too evidenced. Now I'm aware of a script that can hide the 20+posts/day he comes up with, and suddenly the air is coming back.

I find it extremely comforting that, no matter the results of any and all contests tonight, half the country will be upset with OHIO tomorrow.

You never know. Back in the day, Chris Johnson was only rated a two star, and he wound up being a 4.2 guy.

Devin is 1st in TDs, 2nd in receptions, 2nd in yardage, with 16.7 yards per catch. I wouldn't single him out as being "ineffective" when the entire unit has been.

Valenti picked Michigan to cover the spread of 9. He'll at least take it as a small victory that they only lost by 2. and he'll have an effing field day about us not managing a touchdown despite Denard not throwing a meaningful pick.
That said, he's a miserable, miserable, small man.

Keep an eye on mgoblue13. By my count he had 76 posts in the last 5 hours, nearly all being one sentence long and non-contributory. Of course, he stopped posting at 100 points.

This rivalry is only relevant as it is, to me, because of the behavior of your fanbase the past few years. Once the buzzing of you mosquitos completely dies down I'll stop wanting to swat you.

Loving the butthurt posts on my facebook feed. Here's one: "honestly we streaked 4 years, you guys got a lucky scrape by this year, denard's gone next year enjoy losing to our back up in 2013"

I had to see it in writing.
In Hoke's recruiting classes so far, we have
6'5" Chris Bryant, Kyle Kalis, Blake Bars, Kyle Bosch, Patrick Kugler
...and the long snapper, who is 6'1".
We are huge, and this commitment is huge. Huge.

I'd put a humble sum of money on them making the playoffs.
Last season they started 4-20 and finished 21-21. .500 basketball generally gives you a shot at the playoffs in the NBA.
When you consider
I'd say we're in decent shape if last season's finish carries over.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||I'm optimistic. Monroe could||
Monroe could easily be in the discussion for second best center in the conference next season, behind Philly's Andrew Bynum. Even if he never improves from here on out, 18/11 per 36 minutes is solid production out of the pivot.
Andre Drummond, honestly, reminds me so much of Greg Oden. I don't know how Oden would have developed had he stayed healthy, but their physiques and athletic ability are eerily similar. As Dumars said, if you look at Drummond as a piece of clay to be molded, we got the best piece of clay in the entire draft.
I don't think Monroe is in any way a PF, but there's something to be said about having two strong centers on the roster and on the floor at the same time. It worked for the Spurs, it worked for several teams in the past, and I love that the Pistons aren't falling for the small-ball fad that is going around the league.
Knight may never be more than an average-to-borderline-top-10 starting point guard in a golden age for the position (seriously, Wall/Irving/Rondo/Deron Williams/Paul/Rubio/Rose/and more), but that's okay. I just need him to not be a liability and complement his backcourt mates. There was nobody from that draft that we passed on that I'd rather have than him.
Shooting guard isn't really a top heavy position league-wide anymore. You have Kobe, Wade, and...? Stuckey seems to be doing very well at SG and all of a sudden his passing goes from mediocre to a huge strength with the position switch. There was a stretch to end last season where he was essentially a 20-5-5 guy, and that's not too bad considering not many teams are getting much more from their 2s.
I like Jerebko. I like Singler. I hate Maxiell and I hate Daye. SF and PF will have to be figured out as Tayshaun declines (even more) and Maxiell loses his job (please God), but we have four of our top five starters figured out and our 6th/7th men figured out.

It's OT season. It's MSU-Michigan week, and not only do we have to compete with the Tigers for focus and attention and coverage, but now this-which has little to do with Michigan sports-keeps getting bumped.
Pat thinks he's funny. His friends clearly have fun making these videos. But right now, this shouldn't be getting much more pub on this board.
