Dude better watch his celebrations though. Hate to see guys do stuff like this, one day it will bite you.

I don't think you could before but I might be wrong. At any rate they should take care of it, preferably by just making it impossible.

Also, is it just me, or are people now able to upvote themselves?
|22 hours 35 min ago||I think this works great with||
I think this works great with massive sites like reddit but for a place like mgoblog where most threads wont hold more than 50 comments I think it only really serves to stifle new discussion and add to groupthink. It's not very difficult to just scroll through a big thread looking for highly rated comments (it's what I do sometimes tbh), but something like this would actually hurt the site I think.
If it is possible, maybe a good compromise would be to enable this feature once a thread is x hours old? But I get the feeling that that's impractical.

I might just be projecting but I feel like the quality of the mgoboard has already started to climb once again. Posts like this and the funny comments that follow used to be hallmarks of mgoblog but I can't say I've seen them in a long time... it's good to be back.

Finally, I know what I'm supposed to like again!
/s love this stuff really though

Keep the limits off!!
But regardless, this is a huge step up!

We've been calling that for the past 5 years and it hasn't happened. The senior contributers you named were made by the great coaching staff, and are by no means irreplaceable. They'll graduate, new guys will step up, MSU will remain very very good.

If there's one guy who has the right to call the team out for being soft, it's McGary. Here's hoping he can lead them going forward.

This so hard
|1 week 3 days ago||I don't mind fucking around||
I don't mind fucking around with the finish so long as we don't get any goofy logos or anything like that. Also don't mind alternate jerseys for bowl games generally - if there's a proper time to do it, it's that. Just hope it looks good.

Bummer to see all of the Lloyd Brady stuff finally on its way out... that was a very fun period in our mgocommunity's history.

Very interesting analysis. It is of course disappointing that we took so many games against bad opponents down to the wire, but outside of the MSU game (which was an awful matchup for us for all sorts of reasons), we really had a great shot in every one. I remember last offseason MSU fans were talking about how they lost every game by one possession or something like that, and that they expected that with another year of coaching and some better luck they could improve vastly - they have certainly been validated in that. With another year of coaching (and hopefully better coaching - knock on wood) we could be in a similar position next year.

Don't get me wrong as I love this blog to death and would love to see a return of some civility so I can go back to posting more often, but as far as "It's coming" <-- I feel like I've heard that before... every offseason for 2 or 3 years. I feel like there are a lot of changes that need to be made to the board and I'd love to see any of them, but you'll have to excuse me for not holding my breath.

Happy Hannukah! Here's hoping that while Borges only has enough football acumen to score on one possession, we can make the gameplan last long enough to score on eight.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||I had no idea that was||
I had no idea that was tonight, I would have planned ahead but alas I'm busy. Sounds like a great thing to do in 2 years though - especially as I will be a senior about to go to my last home game. Thanks for the heads up regardless.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Whoosh...||
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Seriously. If they said all||
Seriously. If they said all the right things (aka "they're a good team" "we have lots of respect for them" etc) and took us completely seriously, I would say we have no shot. If this sort of thing gets rampant though? The combination of them not taking us seriously and us playing mad is probably our only hope of an upset.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Do we have any more home||
Do we have any more home games in the tournament? If so, how many/when?
|2 weeks 4 days ago||If you want an actual answer,||
If you want an actual answer, here it is. Press the CBs, don't hesitate to blitz LBs, and keep 2 deep safeties as against northwestern. Keeping 2 deep safeties should help us not get burned by deep passes despite our CBs' press coverage, and it will allow the playside safety to come down hard on any outside run or option. Press coverage with 2 safeties should do enough to disrupt their bubble game and any deep stuff they want to do; from there it's just up to your DL and LBs to keep down their interior running game. Much easier said than done I know, but I feel like it's the best chance you've got.

You could have twice as many kids and still send them to college!! Sounds like a good plan to me!
|2 weeks 5 days ago||This... this is the perfect||
This... this is the perfect example of what makes the UM-OSU rivalry so special.
Lots of respect between the two sides, but at the end of the day, there's still that special something that makes you think.... "God am I happy I'm not one of them."
|2 weeks 5 days ago||I too have checked out||
I too have checked out emotionally for the large part. I can't say I was terribly disappointed with the ending of yesterday's game, instead it was just expected. I've always been the crazy Michigan fan in my friend group and all throughout the day yesterday people tried to console me, and when they did it actually surprised me - I had already completely moved on.
That having been said, I think this is just a healthier way of being a fan. I can still become emotionally invested when I choose to - I have tickets on Saturday and you can bet your ass I'm going to get excited for that game, for better or worse. But at the end of the day we're a bad team, and if me checking out means that fact no longer makes me depressed every weekend, it's not a bad thing.

Worst part is we're clearly regressing... I looked at those numbers and thought, "Against any team we might play in the future this year, I'll take those in a heartbeat."
|2 weeks 5 days ago||This is more of a general||
This is more of a general betting logistics question, but it applies here:
Vegas lines aren't designed to simply predict the score, they're designed to make money. For almost every game these will match up perfectly, but will that be true here? I'm thinking this: OSU may be likely to win by 20, but given that it's a major rivalry game against one of the biggest fanbases in the country (and therefore a lot of diehard Michigan fans will think "anything can happen" and will put money on Michigan regardless of the line), wouldn't they want to shade the line on the conservative side? As in, if they think OSU will win by 20, but they also think that a lot of people will be betting on Michigan regardless of the line, they might open up at 17 or 18. The thought process being that they want OSU to have a better chance of covering because if they don't cover Vegas would be screwed, as way more people will bet on the underdog than would normally for a -20 game. Does this make any sense at all?

Interesting... gotta wonder why Fitz is suddenly in the doghouse. If he was legitimately hurt I think we would have heard something about it before gametime (and it wouldn't last this long), and if he was just jumped by the freshmen I'd assume he'd stay on as a 3rd down back or something... I suppose with this staff we'll never know.

It might be lame because it's a chain, but if I'm being perfectly honest, I've never had any pizza that tastes as good as NYPD. Bella Italia (local to Ann Arbor) is a close second, Pizza House probably a very distant third.

No hard feelings whatsoever, it shows maturity to apologize after (and I really don't mean to be rude/disrespectful here) digging yourself a hole. Hug it out, buddy.
