|2 days 18 hours ago||Whatever||
Whatever. It's a football game, not Carmen. Do your thang so long as you're cheering loudly for the good guys.
|2 days 18 hours ago||Heart Rip Torn||
I enjoy Rip Torn in pretty much any movie. MIB 1 especially. Don't agree? We must fight.
|1 week 1 day ago||Booooo||
|1 week 2 days ago||LOL||
LOL who cares? Everybody already thought Lochte was a douche. The Rio Olympics are a mess and they've done a terrible job hosting.
Nobody looks good in this but, honestly, why people get so worked up about the Olympics, I'll never know
|1 week 3 days ago||Hmm||
Homesure, UGP, Moes.
I'm sure there are more than a handful posters here that think Brazzers is an Mgoblog sponsor based on their AdSense profile.
|1 week 3 days ago||Interesting points.||
I usually just hit it out of the park and walk the bases.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Melo sucks||
Melo sucks and is terribly overrated. As bad a chucker as George Costanza.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Ugh||
I would've shot myself in the face if my freshman fall classes included either of those.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Damn||
Tough to not get excited about the potential for this class with an update like this. And I really hope we can hang onto Solomon. Poor high school centers...
|3 weeks 4 days ago||HA!||
Laughing pretty hard at this right now.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||App size||
When it comes to app size, I usually like them to whet my appetite but they need to be small enough that I have room for the main course.
Then again, sometimes it's nice to have an app where you can order two of them and call it a meal. I like to do that a lot with buffalo wings.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I missed these so much||
Also HAHA I forgot Peppers didn't play! So excited for this year
|4 weeks 5 days ago||Pretty sweet||
Do you paint existing figurines? I missed your first post. Can you expand on how you make these? Very cool.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah||
Yeah, I agree. On the bright side, there are some other quotes that make it sound like a few of those visits are just to get to cool places he would never otherwise visit. USC and Oregon, in particular.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Stats 350||
I wish I would've paid more attention in Stats 350.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||*Whom||
*With WHOM do we fill out 2018?
/I'll see myself out...
Also, does making jokes count as bargaining, depression, or acceptance? I think I'm past anger...maybe.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Seven games a year||
Seven games a year is bullshit. We had the first Arkansas game at home. Set the budget planning to put aside money for the next year. Problem solved.
"Seven home games a year" is the same dumb accounting arguments that ADs use to say that only 10 programs are in the black in any given year.
My frustration is not directed at you. I'm just annoyed by all this. Pissed it was cancelled and I got over it. Now we're doing the same dumb stuff again and I'm pissed off again. Add to that some of Manual's other AD decisions.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Because Manual is AD||
Because Manual is AD - he is still the boss. It's his job to think like an AD. He is allowed to tell Jim "We can't do ND that year." if what you're describing indeed happened.
Jim Harbaugh is head coach. He thinks like a head coach. Harbaugh might want to play Notre Dame and two other blue bloods every year because he's that type of person. He just came from the NFL where it's a grind every week. That doesn't mean it's a good idea.
That also doesn't mean Manual just goes "A-OK coach. I'll get right on that." It's his job to use his brain. Shit, why doesn't Harbaugh just run everything football related if Manual is just going to say yes to everything Harbaugh wants?
|7 weeks 2 days ago||If given the choice||
If given the choice, I'd rather not play Notre Dame than have this shit.
I'm not sure which part I'm more pissed about - the fact that the 2018 schedule looks terrible (as of now) and we start the season at ND or that we're playing them in the middle of the Big Ten schedule in 2019.
PLAY CUPCAKES IN THE FIRST GAME AND MIDDLE OF THE CONFERENCE SEASON. Don't schedule ND at the beginning of the season or right in between a couple of divisional matchups.
Unless MSU is switched in 2018, this is a colossal fuck up on our AD's part. I still won't very happy about it. And if we lose Texas, Washington, Oklahoma and UCLA because we're playing ND, I don't know what I'll do (honestly, I'll probably do nothing and just be pissed because what am I really going to do anyway?).
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Pussies that pay||
Pussies that pay way too much fucking money for season tickets to have an SEC home game cancelled so thatwe can have our three biggest rivals away every other season.
Yeah, total pussies, you goddamned college football philistine.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||That's shitty AND tough||
That's shitty AND tough.
We get 3 of the 4 best West teams (at least we get Wisconsin and PSU on the home schedule, I guess?) and then away at our 3 toughest opponents. Sweet.
(caveats about it being 3 years away apply)
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Well that's embarrassing...||
Now that I've seen the details, I definitely don't like this. Pay $2 million to switch from a home game to an away game (and 2 in a row at Notre Dame, on top of it)?
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Booo||
Booo. I can't get behind this until I hear more details.
If we drop the Texas, Washington, UCLA, and Oklahoma home-and-homes because of it, this is definitely going to be a bummer move.
|8 weeks 1 day ago||"Recruiting Rankings Matter"||
First off, I agree. Second, I think "recruiting rankings matter" applies differently to individuals vs. teams.
I don't have the time for this right now but maybe someone else does or maybe I'll do it later in the summer. Anyway, I imagine there is a more direct correlation between recruiting rankings and rankings of individual performance at the next level(s) (i.e., PFF rankings or NFL draft), whereas overall correlation of team performance (i.e., record and advanced O/D stats) is much more directly tied to a combination of recruiting ranking and 'fit' or team need.
Examples of the latter being Rich Rods tiny guys at WVU, Baylor and Oregon's track teams, Wisconsin's olinemen, Harbaugh's blocky-catchy types, etc.
When people say "recruiting rankings do/don't matter", I think the entire argument is too simplistic. The main takeways being recruiting rankings matter differently to different programs and talent is talent.
|8 weeks 4 days ago||Have you posted this before?||
Like, this exact comment before to a similar article?
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Holloman||
Ugh what a great prospect. Size, speed, agility. I'll give the staff credibility for this pull even though he was never leaving the South.
|9 weeks 4 days ago||Draftgeddon AND Soccer on the same day?!||
I don't particularly mind but I think we can put at least a handful of MGoPosters on suicide watch...
|9 weeks 4 days ago||I don't know why||
I don't know why, I always figured you Midwest. But it explains your softball interest (beyond the average M fan's interest in our excellent program).
|10 weeks 2 days ago||I can't tell||
I can't tell if it's because we've been so underwhelming the last two years that I've lost enthusiams or it's because Harbaugh/football is so positive that I don't have any enthusiasms left to give, but I just can't seem to get excited for basketball.
I generally love the recruiting updates of any kind but I'm just so meh about basketball right now. Right now I feel meh unknown to mankind.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Yes, it's their fault||
Yes, it's their fault. Rivals sucks and has sucked for multiple years.
One time - fine. But Rivals exhibits a consistent behavior of click-bait articles that aren't rooted in reality. So yes, recruiting analysts running recruiting websites should be able to tell their readership whether a quote is worth believing or not.
To make the entire twitter post lead readers to believe he would visit while knowing there is no chance is definitely Rivals fault.
