'I have the playbook. Do you guys want to see?' after five weeks of credibility building. Assuming he is a troll he needs to work a little harder on his end game.
On the other hand, spending a month becoming a mgoblogger without clearly tipping his hand shows both dedication and skill.
B to B- from me.
|5 days 17 hours ago||Ohio state isn't as good as Michigan academically.||
I attended a school from which I can say that, according to you.
(and I'm one of about a thousand on this site).

(Edit: as an aside, I gave Kenny G way too much crap as a kid. He isn't bad).
|1 week 2 days ago||The term 'prodigal son' is almost, colloquially, synonymous||
with 'related person that has been away' now.
Language is a living entity, or something.
|1 week 6 days ago||Just a bit.||
|2 weeks 14 hours ago||Yeah, it was bad for me as well during the coaching search.||
If I was watching a ten minute video online I would literally tab over to mgoblog to hit refresh four or five times before the video was over.
Work related internet research was virtually impossible.
As it stands currently, I still just leave mgoblog open on a tab all day.

1) Jordan winning his first championship (namely him holding the trophy). '91
2) Douglas taking over the WWF (WWE?) reffing duty that had been assigned to Tyson until Tyson lost that fight against Douglass. It was only memorable because my Uncle informed me that Douglas would end up clocking a guy before the bout was over because it was all rigged and that was exactly what happened (I was pretty young).
3) The Bills comeback against the Oilers in 93. I was an Oilers fan.
4) Vincy Young v. USC national championship game
5) Lloyd Carr's first game (and my first game as a Michigan fan despite having attended the school for some time at that point).
(being at the first UTL trumps every single one of them, honestly, so that's actually number one for me).

|3 weeks 1 day ago||Because you can backdate a few recruits after getting to the||
SEC limit of 28 ala Nutt.
It's not oversigning if you... can figure out the additional hoops to jump through.
(and it's still better than the old rules based on what Nutt was able to do).
|3 weeks 1 day ago||For some reason, and I'm being very honest here,||
the combination of two things really pisses me off: 1) we don't need a new song; and 2) the fact that this kid isn't even presenting a new song, rather he's presenting a request to ask for money in order to toss that money at someone who is actually talented to write a song for him.
I'd love to imagine that I'd be in the 'well, let us see how it sounds' group if a song actually existed.
As is, I'm in the 'I hate everything and I have a cane' group and, frankly, I'm okay with that.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Concern trolls are way better than most troll variations.||
That's not saying much, of course. It still takes them out of the 'worst' category, in my opinion, though.
Of the trolls, shock trolls are the worst.

Just throwing that out there in case that's your problem.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||The NCAA has no incentive to start over (in my opinion).||
The judicial system is almost as *political comment redacted* but that doesn't mean you can't use one system to correct the other.
The LOI is ripe for judicial intervention. It's probably the only way the initial recruiting system will ever be changed.
|4 weeks 1 hour ago||There are a couple of decent law review articles out there.||
The two I read agreed with you, and as I said, courts have been referring to the scholarships as contracts.
I don't, however, think the LOI is enforceable, but scholarships themselves (meaning when performance has been performed, would have to be).
|4 weeks 11 hours ago||I don't think so.||
The NCAA states that they aren't.
And since players are allowed to terminate their end of the bargain at will, I would agree with the NCAA.
I've seen, however, courts treat them as if they were contracts.
|4 weeks 12 hours ago||I disagree [with the implication that a merger clause ends the||
In my opinion a valid fraudulent inducement claim would trump a merger clause. Though it might depend on the jurisdiction.
(Also, I'm not pretending that this issue should be taken to court).
|4 weeks 1 day ago||It's a tad surreal seeing him||
do anything as Michigan's head football coach, isn't it?
We're living in exciting times.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Yep.||
I realized what it was a second after I clicked on the link.
Also, thanks for the reminder about the show. I completely forgot about it.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Try this.||
You'll have to scroll down.
(which you probably already did. I thought the poster above was providing an alternate link. He wasn't, haha. Blue know it).
That's a second link provided by mgoblue.com.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Morning everyone.||
And damn I'm late. It's 6:43 am central and I'm late.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Honestly, I think it's all of the above (and below).||
Here's the article I pulled Winston from:
My first thought was Manziel (despite the lack of a title) because I got the impression that he really wanted to go to UT. Also, UT fans aren't overly fond of Aggies.
The article is pre Barrett. Barrett's pre-college location and recent events makes him a better than decent bet, too.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Manziel, I imagine.||
The Mack Brown/Manziel 'offer or no offer' story has changed a few times, though. Also, no natty for Manziel, obviously.
(edit: might also be Winston? Wow, Brown).
|7 weeks 3 days ago||Agreed.||
That and 'Corso looks like a Crank yanker puppet' were the two best. Corso does look like a Crank yanker puppet.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||Congrats.||
Make sure you save this thread somehow. It might be a cool addition to some bronzed boots.
(Note: you have to keep the replies, too)

|8 weeks 1 day ago||A&M's D wasn't average last year.||
They were flat out bad.
They were 102 out of 125 in the NCAA's 'total defense' stat in 2014.
(to be fair, that probably includes the WVU bowl game which Snyder did not coach).
|8 weeks 1 day ago||With a QB who was starting his first game ever and||
had only ever thrown three passes in official play. Also, they were playing at USC where the Trojans had a 35 game winning streak. The previous year Stanford was 1-11 and lost to USC 42-0 (at home).
Stupidly ridiculous game.

what I wouldn't give for a deep dish pizza house pizza.
Yeah yeah, I'm sure there are much better deep dish pizzas in the Ann Arbor area, but Pizza House was my first introduction to deep dish, and they were tasty as all heck.
In conclusion, I also want pizza.
|8 weeks 5 days ago||You lucked out.||
Unless the spam site also contained the article.
