You even adjusted the defensive alignments to the draft plans!

Those still might be the same thing. Haha I will figure it out myself.

I love you even if you won't ever say my handle in public, Seth.

Next area for improvement, IMO, is in the listing of the teams so far under each pick. Why not have some of those diagrams Seth makes showing the offense and defense with the names so far filled in (is that possible?), so we'd have a graphical representation of what's left to pick, and (for bonus points) the round each player was drafted listed on the diagram? That'd be another great upgrade in how easy this is to follow, and it'd make it easier to see at a glance who's going to have serious run defense problems, etc.

This is some controlling parent bullshit. Listen to what people are trying to tell you.

Do you not know what "many" means or have you never seen an income distribution chart?

Are we talking about the HttV magazine Kickstarter shirts?

Tuskegee as an institution calls to mind, for some people, much more than sociopathic experiments. I hope Mr. Norfleet does well there, on the football field and otherwise.
"This the missionaries of ’68 soon saw; and if effective industrial and trade schools were impracticable before the establishment of a common-school system, just as certainly no adequate common schools could be founded until there were teachers to teach them. Southern whites would not teach them; Northern whites in sufficient numbers could not be had. If the Negro was to learn, he must teach himself, and the most effective help that could be given him was the establishment of schools to train Negro teachers. This conclusion was slowly but surely reached by every student of the situation until simultaneously, in widely separated regions, without consultation or systematic plan, there arose a series of institutions designed to furnish teachers for the untaught. Above the sneers of critics at the obvious defects of this procedure must ever stand its one crushing rejoinder: in a single generation they put thirty thousand black teachers in the South; they wiped out the illiteracy of the majority of the black people of the land, and they made Tuskegee possible." - W.E.B. Du Bois

This probably obviates one of the additional suggestions I just added above.
|1 week 2 days ago||Excellent||
Hopefully everybody starts to list positions next to each of their players in the offense/defense lists as this goes on. It would also be nice to have a graphical representation of teambuilding progress using the program Seth uses to diagram plays (BryMac could do this, giving commentary and to guess the formations each team is building towards along the way), as well as finding a way to remind us of the draft position of each drafted player with each pick, instead of just in a big chart at the end of each post. (I will try to repost these suggestions early on the next post, where you are likely to see it.)

Signpost more. A lot more. Tell us who is picking next to the picks. Every time, and don't make us scroll to the commentaryto find it. Format this more consistently. (There are 4 different approaches to saying what your team is so far in the first round.)
I like this feature but it is always nearly impossible to follow because of inconsistent formatting.
ETA: In round 3 you've already stopped telling us who is picking.

Once your kid can comfortably hold his head up while wearing them, you can take him to Michigan games without worrying about noise. Our first son went to his first Michigan football game at 6 months. He's now 2 and has been to 2 (maybe 3?) Michigan football games and roughly 6 Michigan basketball games. He also wears them to parades and concerts, and they work great. I've lost track of the number of times we've seen other parents have to take their cowering children out of loud events in tears while our son happily stays wearing those things.

Purdue and MSU have to be in the conversation in the Big Ten. Wrigley kind of sucks.
Least pleasant experience with other fans: the free Vikings-Giants game in Ford Field.

This is not surprising (see Mr. Drew Carey's post above), but I still find it hilarious. Only interesting apparel deal post ever.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Awesome||
This was really interesting. I mentioned it to my wife as an example of cool things on MGoBlog, and she knew about this problem from some experience she has with ballet, where the problem is called "turn out" and is to be avoided for the sake of one's knees: "you do a lot of pointing your toes out and if you don't keep your knees over your toes, you'll screw up your knees. ...it probably looks stupid, too."

I knew it was happening but I'm too far away to go, so I never asked when exactly or thought to publicize here.
