|36 weeks 4 days ago||maybe?||
My understanding is that a veteran is a person who has served at any point in time in any branch of the military. So even current members would meet that definition. But then again, there is an unspoken insinuation that the service is over.
|1 year 51 weeks ago||11W site redesign||
I hadn't been to 11W in a while and, is it just me or is the new web design trend of "OMG pictures everywhere" incredibly annoying? I value sites like mgoblog, google news, and reddit precisely *because* there isn't a bunch of superfluous crap all over the place.

|2 years 49 weeks ago||During the signing day liveblog||
During the signing day liveblog Brian said they are working on it and they want it to be more wiki-style. Yes, I know it's already kind of a wiki but maybe the change has something to do with the site overhaul that is apparently in the works.
|3 years 14 weeks ago||O'Brien||
O'Brien left because he lost the starting job. He was able to leave and play immediately because he graduated.
|3 years 15 weeks ago||Agreed||
Agreed. I'd be okay with a freshman Shane Morris throwing to Gardner, Funchess, Gallon, the better of Darboh/Chesson and, fingers crossed, Laquon Treadwell.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||FOIA Time||
Let's just come out and say it: How is the status quo/near-future of college football not supported by illegal kickbacks or some other financial shadiness involving the blazer-adorned bowl buffoons and conference leadership?
|3 years 47 weeks ago||Sweet names...||
I want to root for this team just because some of their names are so awesome.
Mix, Teal, Brek, Zarek ...
|3 years 51 weeks ago||Also, regarding Dymonte Thomas:||
Josh Helmholdt: Alliance (Ohio) Marlington safety Dymonte Thomas is one of the fastest players in the Midwest for 2013, and overall an outstanding athlete. As a junior, though, he mostly played close to the line of scrimmage and we did not get a chance to see much of him in coverage. So, we did not get too bullish on his ranking until we were able to more thoroughly assess his coverage skills.

Dunno if you're referring to me or the (sparty?) troll, but I don't take kindly to being accused of aniti-semitism.
|4 years 9 weeks ago||Saban's is interesting too||
He had OK ST at #4 with Stanford at #3
Troy calhoun (air force) had OK ST all the way down at 5!
|4 years 11 weeks ago||same issue on Safari||
I have the same issue on Safari -- as soon as I click to see the next "page" of threads they all disappear. Works fine on Chrome, though.
|4 years 12 weeks ago||I'm inclined to agree, but||
I'm inclined to agree, but if Stanford beats Oregon tonight, the ducks only have one impressive victory (Arizona St.) and two losses. They might snag a BCS bid...but maybe not.
Also, they'd still have to beat USC next week.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||I don't know||
I don't know. The old old meaning of swag was literally, a bag of stolen clothes. So maybe it's cool to have swag because you're wearing clothes that you stole and are therefore a badass with swag?
Or maybe there's a new french-language thing in the hip hop community where it's cool to just not pronounce the last few letters of a word.
|4 years 16 weeks ago||Seconded||
Seconded. "Swag" is even worse.

I didn't mention Maryland, only UVA. Why do you care what allegiances inform my opinion?
I saw an opportunity to make fun of UVA and I took it. Go throw on some seersucker/pastel getup and deal with it.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||There are 3||
Football, basketball, and hockey. I haven't seen UVA do anything in any of those sports. You must be a lax brah or something.
The thing is, nobody cares about anything besides bball and football. Just look at the guy who always posts about UM softball on this site. Nobody even reads that shit. It's nice for the players and their friends and family, but everyone knows UVA sports are a joke because their basketball and football teams suck. Get over yourself.
|4 years 21 weeks ago||FWIW||
UVA athletic program is pretty embarrassing . . .
|4 years 24 weeks ago||welp||
I agree with some of that, and it takes us back to the OP longing for the old pos/neg-bang system. A lot of trolling can be eliminated with a good moderation system.
I'm not sure I agree with self-censoring just because a casual observer might "take these things as truth." A casual observer might look at the front page and think MGoCommunity friggin loves Freekbass.
I think it's a fine line and we just disagree on it's precise location in the proverbial sand.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||Seconded||
People are so concerned about rising above "lol internets blog" status they seem to forget that this is indeed a message board. Leave the journalistic standards to Brian and his minions. If rumors are labeled as such and can be somehow connected to a legitimate source . . . I say go right ahead. If people go too far or are repeat offenders its nothing a little banhammer can't fix.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||I think||
I think there's a natural tendency for recruits to slip in the rankings once they commit to a team because they sort of fall off the radar. There are other recruits attending camps and whatnot, so the ones who perform well get pushed up in the rankings. With the exception of maybe terry richardson, I think if you look at the recent 24/7 changes, most of our recruits that slipped probably did so because they haven't been hitting up the camp circuit over the summer.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||well, keep in mind||
well, keep in mind they were rumors to us, us being the internets. We don't know what brady hoke and others know. I can think of many scenarios where the young man should be kicked off the team even if he isn't facing charges.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||I think your problem||
I think your problem is that the community doesn't enjoy. This is a worthless post. Smart-ass responses don't help you either.
|4 years 25 weeks ago||really?||
to me, it doesn't seem that much different from doing a tail jump or standing at the door of a C-130. Or even a blackhawk jump, for that matter. You just sit on the edge and push off.
If you've ever jumped out the tail of a small aircraft . . . this seems almost identical to that. Except you jump instead of walk back inside

|4 years 27 weeks ago||Sort of reminds me of the fake guy on the bball side||
Called himself Jonathon Paige, here's the story.
Guy just recycled the same news over and over. Before long he was seen as a bit of an "expert."
