|1 day 8 hours ago||Those are the only ones that matter||
the negative 90 or so he's at now has no impact on his point total. the two comments he's put into this post however, negging those does ding his mgopoints.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Lucky for the OP||
that up or downvoting on a topic itself doesn't cause the mgopoints of the poster to change, otherwise his mgopoints total would be falling in a hurry on this one.
|1 day 8 hours ago||Not cool man||
seriously, you nearly gave me a heart attack there.
|1 day 8 hours ago||that was what I meant||
I figured the NW game's ending was obviously what I meant there.
|1 day 10 hours ago||Yeah there's something wrong with that list||
In 10 years no one is going to give 2 shits about RGIII's benching or that GB beat Dallas, but we will always have Trey's shot and it will never be forgotten by UM fans.
|1 day 11 hours ago||After BYU||
it was all over the media how he was on the hot seat. If they were truly shocked, then that is one hell of a sealed bubble those boys live in. Unless they were shocked in the sense that they were shocked he had told them all week before resigning that he wasn't stepping down, then he did, thus having lied to them which they may consider shocking.
Also, wasn't there a post about Lovie Smith interviewing for UT a minute ago? what happened? it disappeared before I could open it, I was too busy upvoting in the posbang thread.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Agreed||
Friday posbangs are how I accumulate points to use on downvoting trolls too. I'm so glad the voting system is back!
|1 day 11 hours ago||Happy Holidays!||
Happy Hanukkah to those that already celebrated it, Merry Christmas to those celebrating it next week, Happy New Year for the week after, Happy Kwanzaa whenever that is celebrated to those who celebrate that, Happy Festivus to the rest of us!
And Happy Birthday to all the December birthdays out there including myself, and my mgoavatar who turned 2 yesterday. His party is tomorrow so that should be fun. My wife set it up with a Bubble Guppies theme, his favorite TV show. At least it's not Barney or Elmo.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
|2 days 12 hours ago||I don't have a lot but||
I do have some stuff in my mancave. The prizes of my collection (all Chicago sports teams, sadly no good UM stuff yet aside from my diploma)
An Ernie Banks autograph on a scorecard, a Jeremy Roenick autographed picture, a Jim Harbaugh autographed Bears sweatshirt (from his playing days for the Bears), a John Paxson autographed Bulls pennant, and an autographed photo of Mike Singletary. All are autographs that I got in person from the player in question, as opposed to bought.
The Paxson autograph has a bit of a cool story bro backstory to it. If you remember the OJ Simpson murder case, he had flown to Chicago the night of the murders. It was to play in a charity golf tournament at my dad's country club. I was there with my dad, who was president of the golf board, and would've had OJ as his playing partner. Instead, OJ flew back home upon learning of the news (not that he didnt already know) of his exwife's death, so instead my dad was partnered with Paxson and I got his autograph instead.
|5 days 11 hours ago||Can we use any of the OL?||
With us losing both of our OTs and still having some depth issues, could we use any of the OL that are transferring?
|1 week 1 day 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.
|1 week 1 day 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.
|1 week 1 day 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.
|1 week 1 day 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).
|1 week 1 day ago||Upvote all the posbangs!||
I'll always upvote anything with Upton in it. Happy 4th Posbang today!
|1 week 1 day 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!
|1 week 1 day 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!
|1 week 2 days 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?
|1 week 2 days 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.
|1 week 2 days 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.
|1 week 3 days 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
|1 week 3 days 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!
|1 week 3 days 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.
|1 week 3 days 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.
|1 week 3 days 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!
|2 weeks 1 day 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!
|2 weeks 3 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 4 days ago||Embed for ya||
yikes that is a creepy shirt. Good find!
|2 weeks 5 days 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 5 days 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!
