Sounds like Brian is taking the steps he needs to take. The user moderation system needs to be fixed and setting a different tone/expectation for all of us to follow- whether that's me and LSA or everyone on Brian's blog generally- is definitely a very good thing. If someone asked whether I think MGoBlog/MGoBoard would be better or worse in the next three months than it has been the last three, I would point to both of those as reasons to be optimistic.
About the execution of it...I don't think it will come as much of a surprise to anyone that I'm not in favor of banning M-Wolverine. I'm not saying I agree with everything he's ever posted or that his position on the Brandon Brown hire isn't decidedly negative and vocal, but I'm 100% with Seth about throwing the baby out with the bathwater, so to speak. M-Wolverine, whatever you thought of his internet persona (he definitely had his moments both ways), is a good guy that honestly does care. I'll miss him.

If it's some random troll the account just gets caved and is probably lost in the great abyss, if it's an actual poster Brian gets emailed about it, but it's not published anywhere on the site. That's how it works with the mods anyway.

Did anyone other than pee-wee/bantam hockey players watch Mystery, Alaska? Cool movie, for sure.
Skating on a river like they had would be an incredible experience.

Stick length is limited to 63 inches.

Between the natural hype that his talent draws and the statements he's made, I'm not sure he can get much more singled out than he will be already.
|1 day 21 hours ago||You're the best, man.||
He was angry enough about Sweatpants leaking, it must have been a shit show around him yesterday...
What do you think of 3005? My thoughts after one listen were that someone convinced him that he needed to get on the radio at all costs.
|1 day 22 hours ago||I've heard AM once over...||
I'll have to do it again. The rest of your list and Hart20's I'll definitely check out.
Also, music related and I've been dying to find a reason to post this on MGoBlog but haven't found one, so I'll force it and just put it here. I find this hilarious on an irrational level.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Don't think you're alone on that one.||
|1 day 23 hours ago||Music thread!!!||
What's on everybody's playlist right now? Looking to get some new stuff tonight. Dissapointed in the two new Childish Gambino singles but maybe B-Nut-GoBlue and a2_electricboogaloo or some mystery poster wants to hook me up with something good.
|2 days 1 hour ago||I've seen people saying...||
that Kovacs got cut by RR. I'm only like 99% sure I'm remembering this correctly, but didn't Kovacs make the team on his first tryout?
He made the team and then was at Schembechler picking up his gear when the team doctor (who was a family friend) had to break the news that he wouldn't be allowed to join the team due to a problem with the knee surgery he had in high school. The problem was fixed with fifteen minutes and a scalpel and Kovacs made the team again the next year.
Is there something I'm missing? Like I said, I'm pretty damn sure this is the correct timeline.
|2 days 2 hours ago||No, that can't be done with||
No, that can't be done with regular posting permissions. If you want that done just post in the mod sticky and we can take care of it. Or here since we're already talking about it.

I like your joke there, it made me laugh. But we're going to need to cut back on the snark because if not we're gonna banish you to Bolivia. I like your avatar.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Also there's a difference||
Also there's a difference between a criticism (DG made a bad read) and an insult (WTF DG is a dumbass, put Morris in). The latter will ensure that you're not posting on MGoBlog much longer.
|2 days 4 hours ago||If they lost their four||
If they lost their four highest rated recruits because of it, including their QB, he not only deserves a wrist slap but he should be canned. Maybe it isn't the worst thing in the world, but if you're behaving unprofessionally and it has that type of effect than it is a big deal, which is why I'd much rather not try to toe that line.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Gonna have to get them converted.||
What's the ratio of Schrute bucks to Stanley nickles these days?
|2 days 4 hours ago||I get what he's going for.||
I bet if Brian made some kind of shopping list, it'd have a major dent in it by Christmas.
|2 days 4 hours ago||Bo, Lombardi and probably||
Bo, Lombardi and probably every legendary coach have said that their approach varied between each player. Not everyone responds to screaming, and not everyone responds to a pat on the back.
FWIW I'd rather be a program where there aren't coaches calling players bitches right in their face in a random hallway. It's different when you're at practice, but that just seems like a less than ideal situation to say the least.

but there's still a link under the "About" header.
|2 days 18 hours ago||You had me counting syllables, so here's the haiku form.||
UGA real hurt
|2 days 19 hours ago||Posters can't edit after||
Posters can't edit after there has been a reply to their post. Until someone replies there should be an edit button next to reply.
|2 days 19 hours ago||I know this is /s /s /s.||
but they're going to be really good this year. Also hockey is ranked number three and it looks like they're for real.
|3 days 21 hours ago||Correct re: softball.||
Which I'm betting you knew for sure anyway, but yeah.
|4 days 25 min ago||Well this is depressing.||
Had it in my head for weeks that this would be on BTN.
|4 days 2 hours ago||That and edited posts don't||
That and edited posts don't show up as new from mods. That's a big deal when you edit your posts like a certain, unnamed, mod who may or may not have a pony avatar.
|4 days 2 hours ago||No.||
|4 days 18 hours ago||Still haven't started to watch.||
But yeah, gotta get on that.
|4 days 19 hours ago||I'll send him an email right now.||
Last year he did, as I'm sure you know. Feel like LSA and I have been more accepting of big OT threads when stuff is going badly than when moderators were different*, WD thread probably would have stood tonight.
*Different. Literally. That's it.
|4 days 19 hours ago||Reminds me of the MBB title game this season.||
Beautiful game where M came out on the wrong end. Obviously investment in football vs. basketball comes into play here, but it's still The Game, regardless of what was at stake for Michigan.
|4 days 19 hours ago||I don't think that's fair to Gardner.||
If they could have used his legs, I'm assuming they would have (certainly hope that's the case, at least). If Gardner was unable to do it after the gladiator show he put on Saturday, that's unfortunate, but what else can you ask the guy to do?
|5 days 18 hours ago||Re: Seth...||
He should get some special appreciation for being as accessible/helpful as he is.
Brian needs no elaboration, IMO. Ace is a genuinely nice guy that takes his (seemingly non-serious) job very seriously and has done a hell of a job becoming a great contributor to the site. Heiko I haven't really had much interaction with but he seems like good people and hopefully he'll cure cancer. BiSB is the most exceptional golden retriever I have ever encountered.
Also, PGB/CooperLily21 and LSAClassOf2000 can't go without mention, so, uh...mention.
