With us losing both of our OTs and still having some depth issues, could we use any of the OL that are transferring?
|4 days 20 hours ago||I'll be seeing it on Christmas||
unfortunately I don't have time to see it before then, but I am looking forward to seeing this one. I've loved the LOTR series and have enjoyed what they've done with The Hobbit so far. I'm glad to hear that you liked it OP.
|4 days 22 hours ago||He got booted||
It gives you an "access denied" when you try to pull up his posting history
I was looking forward to watching him get downvoted like crazy.
In the meantime, it amuses me that your username is straight out of GoT and the first reply to your comment was by a Jon Snow. +1 to both of you for your usernames.
|4 days 22 hours ago||F*ck Cancer||
I lost 3 of my grandparents to it, and my mom had it but beat it, as well. Basically that's the only risk factor in my family, so I know that's what's gonna kill me too some day. But f*ck cancer! I hope the doctors cure it before it gets me.
To Cali Wolverine - I hope the new drug continues to work well on your wife and that she makes a full recovery. That would be a great thing. Keep sharing the news on this, f*ck people that complained about you in the past when you'd talk about this on here.
|4 days 22 hours ago||Happy Birthday!||
To yourself OP, and to all the other December birthdays out there too! (Mine's Monday, I still can't believe I'll be 32).
|4 days 22 hours ago||Upvote all the posbangs!||
I'll always upvote anything with Upton in it. Happy 4th Posbang today!
|5 days 1 hour ago||I'll be pulling for Army||
My father in law went to West Point, so cheering for Army is mandatory in our family. I really hope they pull off the upset and break Navy's streak over them.
Other weekend plans: Dinner with my mom's side of the family tonight at Cheesecake Factory and dinner with my dad's side of the family Sunday at Maggianos, so I'll be well fed this weekend. It's for my birthday, I turn 32 on Monday.
Have a good weekend everybody! Double Posbang Friday woohoo!
|5 days 2 hours ago||Not superstitious at all||
but oddly enough as I opened this thread, the next track up on my iPod was "It's the end of the world as we know it" by R.E.M. so that is kinda ominous considering that we are talking about superstitions.
Happy Real Posbang Friday everybody! Enjoy your weekend!
|6 days 1 hour ago||Well done||
as always BiSB. Have you given thought about what sort of front page content you'll be doing once the football season ends? a return to this week in twitter?
|6 days 1 hour ago||I've got a hater||
back on the old voting system, someone -1'd everything I posted, regardless of content. it's probably the same guy.
|6 days 3 hours ago||It didn't have it before||
when we had voting on posts prior to the start of the football season, the app wasn't able to do modding and upvoting. While I'd love to see that feature get added, I have no idea how difficult that would be to program. I think I remember the programmer mentioning in a post here before that it would be too complicated, but I could be wrong.
|6 days 14 hours ago||Post in posbang threads||
Now that posbang threads are back & actually mean something again, a few solid posts there will rapidly up your points
|6 days 18 hours ago||This whole thread||
needs to go into the MGoHallofFame - the return of the posbangs thread. This one is epic. WOOOOOO POSBANGS ARE BACK BABY!
|6 days 18 hours ago||its my town too||
I'm from Chicago, I just hate deep dish pizza. Especially Lou Malnati's. Their deep dish bites and their thin crust is worse. I much prefer Giordano's to Lou's for both thin and thick. Rosati's thin is my favorite though.
|6 days 20 hours ago||My unpopular opinions||
Zingerman's is way overpriced and overrated.
I look down on people that watch Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead that don't read the books the series come from.
The Vampire Diaries is one of the more entertaining shows on TV.
People that watch Honey Boo-Boo should be sterilized.
I think it is perfectly acceptable to be a fan of both the Chicago Cubs & Chicago White Sox.
Chicago Style (deep dish) pizza sucks.
This is a great thread, even better with the return of up and down voting. - not an unpopular opinion but a statement of fact.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Happy Wednesday||
It's nice to have posbangs back again! It's also nice that both pos and neg bangs affect your mgopoints totals, should help eliminate some trolls, hopefully. Celebrate time!
|1 week 4 days ago||gorging on Filipino food||
my wife's family is Filipino. We are heading up to visit them tomorrow for an annual party that the Pinoy community where they live does for the holidays. It's basically a giant potluck of Pinoy food, beer (San Miguel FTW!), and of course Karaoke. Should be a ton of fun.
Aside from that, I have to study for grad school final exam on Wednesday and write a final paper for class Thursday.
Have a good weekend everybody!
|1 week 6 days ago||Hoops title||
The hoops title is the easy pick for me. I'd only pick the OSU game if your sports Genie revealed the outcome of the upcoming BCS games. If OSU wins it all this year in football then my hatred of OSU would make picking the football game more likely.
Nah, even if OSU wins the BCS title this year, I'd still probably go with the hoops championship. I would've won my pool had Michigan pulled off the upset, instead I had to settle for 2nd place. Plus, national championship would've helped tremendously with recruiting, probably would've helped us do better with some of the guys we lost to KY.
|2 weeks 19 hours ago||Embed for ya||
yikes that is a creepy shirt. Good find!
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Yes there is||
If we lose to them a 2nd time it'll be nothing but bad press, & I'm sure enough fans will vote w/ their wallets that DB realizes he made a mistake.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Surprising||
I'm not surprised that a football fan killed another over a game. What does surprise me was that the killer & the victim were both women. That's more of what I'd expect out of male fans of football. Sad tragedy. It's just a game, people!
|2 weeks 2 days ago||it's my favorite loss||
not sure if that is even possible, as no one likes losing. But as losses go, it's the loss that feels least like a loss to me. I was expecting a slaughter. When it was 35-21 my thought was: "well, I had thought before the game they'd stay close early but OSU would pull away in the 2nd half as the defense gets exhausted, so I was spot on" but then somehow we came back and got back in it, and the game came down to the wire.
Yes, losing sucks, agreed. But as losses go, this is probably the loss I am least ever upset about.
If I were to set aside my fandom, as an outsider you'd probably enjoy watching this game between two teams slugging it out. Someone mentioned it is like Rocky 1, where the underdog goes the distance but loses in the end. That feels right for a description of this game.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Dunno if you saw this||
but this buzzfeed article had a ton of potential recipes for the holiday mashup
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Happy Hannukah!||
to all the members of the tribe celebrating it starting tonight. Is anyone doing anything special for Thanksgivukah tomorrow like sweet potato latkes? Pumpkin kugel?
|2 weeks 6 days ago||Peppers||
no, we can't "demonstrably prove" that fan reaction is behind Peppers' recent decision, but considering the kid himself said that he was looking again because of rumors that Hoke was out the door, fan reaction could be what caused those rumors in the first place.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||This was not what I expected||
when I clicked on the thread, I had no idea what to expect from the title. This was well done, bravo OP!
|2 weeks 6 days ago||For a second there||
before I followed the link my brain went: A car dealership giving out free cars? Probably giving them to the OSU players.
|2 weeks 6 days ago||They don't suck||
however they are grossly overrated and overpriced. Maybe its because I grew up on some great Chicago delis, but I was never seriously impressed with Zingermans when I went there. It's probably considered as good as it is because of the total lack of competition in the area.
|3 weeks 1 hour ago||HAM AND CHEESE?!?||
FERGODSAKES everyone knows that Corned Beef on Rye is far superior! You should be ashamed of yourself!
|3 weeks 1 hour ago||as a somewhat mad person||
I have twice in the past week told someone to GTFO and to not let the door hit them in the ass on their way out. But both times that was not directed at people not renewing their season tickets, it was directed at people that stated they were giving up on the team altogether until they were good again, stating they were going to sell their UM gear and never watch a game until the team was decent. Those people can GTFO for all I care, and I think that I'm probably in the majority opinion where we don't want fair weather fans of the team.
As to season ticket holders, if you're not going to renew but still go to every game by getting tickets cheaper on the secondary market, and you're just avoiding paying your PSL, then I am okay with that decision. From a budgetary standpoint, that makes a ton of sense. However, If you are giving up your season tickets and stating you're not going to go to the games until the team improves, then you're being fairweather and in that case my GTFO comments stand.
