|5 days 39 min ago||About those...||
SixZero came up with the format, logo and was the heart and soul of it. Seth did one (of SixZero) and M-Wolverine picked it up with SixZero's encouragement when it stayed dormant for a while. He and SixZero did something like ten combined in the summer of 2013. Last I heard, SixZero is too busy with other work to put time into the profiles and M-Wolverine has since been banned.
My thoughts on bringing back that same format, FWIW:
First, a full blown profile like that will probably need to wait until at least New Years. Second, SixZero needs a chance to say no if someone wants to use his format/logo/title. Third, you need a mod + someone that has a style that's a good fit to do it. That likely limits the options to mods/staff or one of them plus someone who has been around enough to "get it" and be able to craft questions with some context.
I've been involved on 2/3 sides (not writing questions, which is the most work intensive part) and these take about a week from start to finish because there's a deceptively long checklist and you're dealing with (usually) one or two other working adults with invariably different schedules/priorities.
I can also tell you that if you're looking for an obvious choice to profile that hasn't been done, there's likely a reason. The rejection rate in 2013 was around 50%.

Basically we get a ton of threads on game days, and one person's opinion based reaction isn't worth its own thread. The threshold is usually actual data or detailed analysis of something specific.
Bolivia was either always around due to the Tyson quote, "fade into Bolivian" or PGB thought a typo was hilarious and ran with it. I'm partial to the second explanation, but I don't know how to search the site for the earliest appearance of Bolivia/Bolivian. Anyway, Bolivia is where you go when your points get bombed by one of the mods or when you get banned.

I'm not even a big dessert guy, especially after a big meal, but you just have to do it. Sorbet or frozen praline coffee for me.

Schools not paying for things they used to might make football more expensive than in the past, but hockey is growing big time and equipment is orders of magnitude more expensive than football (not to mention cost of ice time compared to cost of field time).

Love Cigar City. I'll have to crack open a Jai Alai when I finally get out of the office.
I live within walking distance of their tasting room and don't take advantage of that enough. Might have to remidy that this weekend...

Can you pick up some Gumballhead and make a slight detour to Tampa on your way back home?
Definitely go to Founders, HopCat is one of a few locations but also a good choice with great bar food.

I'll defer if any (non-koala) Austrailians want to chime in, but I'm pretty sure the kangaroo was a joey too.

Can someone confirm, and if open dates will be filled in as well? I'd rather wait until everything is sorted out if it's not going to update closer to games.

Hockey is steadily trending upward in the US.
The number of USA Hockey registered players is up about 20% over the last ten years (442,077 in 05-06 and 533,172 in 14-15).

This seems like a Wisconsin-specific issue if he's gotten through the clearinghouse and will matriculate somewhere in the fall.

This was the exact problem with the Legends Jersey execution. Players shouldn't be continually asked to "earn" a number (and yes I realize Carr did this with Braylon).
Not every single guy that wears the 1 jersey needs to win a Biletnikoff for it to keep its luster. Butterfield not lighting the world on fire didn't diminish the value Braylon saw in it.

Jedd Fisch never played and I learned that tonight (h/t to Mr. Miggle). Almost all of the talk, IIRC, was how Harbaugh had managed to land a guy who was an NFL OC immediately prior to taking the WR job.

That's exactly my point. It's not an analogy, it's a claim that if you can coach, nobody cares one iota what your 40 time was twenty years ago or how many tackles you had at Wisconsin- La Crosse.
|4 weeks 5 days ago||When Harbaugh was putting his||
When Harbaugh was putting his staff together, was there anyone discussing where Drevno or Durkin or even Mattison had played?
I don't remember one, and the only reason I know that/where they did play is because I just looked it up.

Seth to the rescue, although the +200 isn't there now.

I didn't realize Leach hadn't played either, so there's a non-asshole example below.
At the end of the day I don't think Nick Saban is relying on his experience at Kent State, or Meyer is relying on football knowledge learned being a backup at Cincinnati or Belichick at DIII Wesleyan. Being a coach isn't the same thing as being a player, to state the obvious.

It's not exactly the same thing, but Patrick Murphey has a softball national title despite never playing. The guy is an asshole, but Charlie Weis never played in college and got a shot at the big leagues.
Taking a look at the article, she played women's football professionally for 10+ years. I don't know enough about this particular woman, but I can't see any reason women in general can't coach at a P5/NFL level.

Very cool, but her title sounds temporary at this point.
There were a lot of interviews with NHL types around the hype of the USWNT in Sochi saying the last two big barriers for women in American sports were scouting and coaching positions, and it looks like there's been some solid progress since, as the OP mentions.

Replying here so people can see it: Turd's comment could be the first ever +200. I'll put it in the User Created MGoHallofFame under a new header if it gets there.

Am I missing something or is there an issue specific to Michigan Stadium that prevents scanning directly from the StubHub app?
I haven't been to a football game in a few years but had no problems scanning from my phone at Crisler and Yost last winter.

Updating software for the 2000 switch. I had eight different bosses, was regularly asked to work Saturday and even Sunday. The printer/fax sucked and was a source of constant drama.
After the two decent coworkers I had were fired I stayed on with a plan to rip the place off. Thankfully a fire bailed me out when that started going poorly.
