"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

"Gregg Henson gets the Assclown tag: I tried to establish Henson's credibility, even reached out to him on Twitter. The guy is getting emails from one former player passing along the suite of dubious stories, and is trying to use that to become the MC for the downfall of this administration. I've decided to just not bite. Treat Henson stories like Drew Sharp et al."

My parents taught me not to flaunt my money in public nor matter how tempting. My parents also taught me to check to see if something had already been posted before I create a thread on it.

I don't care if the mods have banned Henson from the site, this information coincides with my personal agenda, so I approve.

I appreciate the attempt, but this was already posted...within an hour after the fireside chat. I know it's been hard to keep up with what has and hasn't been posted on here as of late, but if happened more than a few hours ago, it is safw to assume an MGoThread was already created on it.
|1 week 3 days ago||Whoa, this is up early...||
And I'm up waaaay too late. Good night and happy posbang Friday everyone!
|1 week 3 days ago||Off all the dumb things posted on here recently...||
...this is very, very high up on the list. There are too many things running through my head that I want to say to you, but I'm just going to bite my tongue, neg you and leave.

I'm more interested in his 40, shuttle time and vertical.

I don't find myself on 11W very often, but this is certainly not the first time I've been impressed with one of Ramzy's articles. The guy can write a mean article and often finds way to do so in a manner which not only doesn't alienate opposing fanbases, but actually pulls them in. Kudos to him yet again.
|1 week 4 days ago||Methinks you didn't actually||
Methinks you didn't actually get the sarcastic intent after all. Matter of fact, I would actually say my statement veers more towards hyperbole than sarcasm, as it's intent was to go slightly but obviously too far in my comical misintepretation of my familial situation in order to elicit an uncomfortable yet humorous reaction from you all.

I hunted those for the longest time and finally caught one. Now it won't leave me alone in my house, always wears this sparkley thing on her finger and constantly asks if it's ok to use the credit card. Also, she created some mini human woman like thing while here and keeps saying it's mine. Sorry lady, not interested in your mini-human thing that can't even speak English.
Hunting human women was a big mistake.

I don't think Tae and Co. posted anything themselves, but someone else noticed they were doing another Kickstarter and created a thread for it. As former players, I think this is probably a good year to stay away from the violatile environment that is MGoBlog (someone was certainly bound to cross a line), but I do think them reaching out to us as they have in the past is a surefire way to ensure funding...

So, can someone explain to me what's up this guy's ass? I imagine I missed something...

"When you don't know who to attribute a quote to, or you just want to say something yourself and give it credibility, play it safe and say it's an ancient Chinese proverb. People don't question that shit."
- Ancient Chinese Proverb
Edit: On a more serious note, Lincoln, Mark Twain, a variation of a bible proverb and Confucius (or generic chinese proverb) are the front runners for the originator of the quote. None seem to hold more proof of right to it than any other though. This article is a good read if you're truly interested.

For the split second that we somewhat see what's going on, it does appear that he seems caught off guard when he finds himself in front of some policemen and Saban. In other words, it could plausibly be a complete accident that he got in their way. But we don't know that; College kids also make stupid decisions and he may have been gunning for them all along.
Regardless, let's not forget that running onto a field or court, while it may be rite of passage, is technically not allowed and that by doing so, you maybe opening the door to punishment or bodily harm in some form or another. Not justifying someone harming another or attempting to shift blame altogether, but I'm saying it's something that can be potentially avoided by following the rules

Whoops. Well, clearly Menippean satire is not my forte. Also not very good at the Twittering stuff or reading signatures on here...
|1 week 5 days ago||You should feel free to speak||
You should feel free to speak your mind, even if that means you will openly be showing support for Hoke. The MGoBlog family welcomes all opinions and would never think of publically chastising those who go against the grain!

Had I known we were going to make a thing out of it, I would've kept it up. As it were, I am a lazy individual and putting it back up now after the joke has been spoiled is much more effort than I can bear.
|1 week 5 days ago||Wow, "Misopogobaby" confused the heck out of me for a sec...||
Man, I forgot that his handle used to be Misogopan.... How long is it been since that was changed? I guess time flies when your football team really sucks...

Hey everybody, let's start protesting all the protesting!
|1 week 5 days ago||Embed for the thread.||
Got beat on the embed. Anyways, I've spent the past minute trying to see exactly how that guy got decked. He's got a good story to tell to his grandkids.
|1 week 5 days ago||Yes, I would still want him gone.||
Regardless of what the outcome of the season is or any moves he's responsible for during or immediately following the season, there's only one reasonable thing to happen to Brandon:
Let's not forget this isn't just about the football team itself. This is about about the questionable decisions he's made, how he's conducted himself, the way he's alienated the fans and turned the athletic department into a vessel that exists purely for profit. There is no redemption for all of the mistakes he's already made.
|1 week 5 days ago||Do you mean onboard with Hoke||
Do you mean onboard with Hoke specifically? As a head coach, there's nothing that will ever give me any sort of faith in him. I didn't like him when he stepped foot in the door and outside starting out with an incredible string of sheer dumb luck, he's done nothing to change my mind. He's proven his serious incompetencies as the head coach of a major program and that it's not where he belongs.
The only way I'm ever going to be back on good terms with Hoke as a member of the football team is if he's willing to take a demotion to dline coach while someone who actually knows how to run a real program takes the reins.

|1 week 6 days ago||With the way they've been||
With the way they've been performing on special teams this year with all their TDs and blocks, I think Philly is an exciting place for an up and coming defensive player to be. If he somehow can make his way up from the practice squad to the 53 man roster, even in only special teams action, he certainly has the chance to make a name for himself.
