|1 week 4 days ago||ESPN logic fail||
So I went to join in, and I was going to put both my 4 year old daughter's bracket (who by the way has picked the champion the last 2 years, but my bias has rubbed of on her so she chose UM to win it all after originally saying 'Nova' was going to win) as well as my own bracket into the group.
Apparently you can submit only 1 bracket per user, so her's is in - mine is out. If she gets the champ right 3 years in a row I'll have a dilemma of which to be more proud of - my little girl or our championship basketball team. First world problem that would be..
Edit - you can leave the group and rejoin with another bracket if you so choose, which I did.

|21 weeks 1 hour ago||Rooting Guide?||
Has anyone gone to the effort of creating a rooting guide for the remainder of the season?
In the best case scenario, we win out and everyone else has a loss, we get the #1 seed and avoid a playoff game in Atlanta (a home game for Alabama/Clemson).
Win out, and we are obviously in the playoff. Unfortunately there is a non-zero change we may not win the next 5 games. Below is my impression of what we should be cheering for in the event we should drop a game, in the hopes we still receive a playoff invitation:
An OSU loss before The Game results in our going ot the Big Ten championship regardless of the outcome of The Game, so pessimists guide is to cheer for an OSU loss in the next 3 weeks (good to know for those debating OSU/MSU in their minds)
Clemson seems highly unlikely to lose any remaining scheduled game , and will face VT in the ACC championship game. Obviously we cheer for VT in such a game, though we are likely disappointed.
I'd think we cheer against Washington from here on out? An apple bowl loss to WSU would put a 2 loss team as the PAC12 champion, and best case scenario Colorado beats a Washington/State team in the championship game. A 1 loss Michigan may still receive that invite having the Colorado head to head in our pocket? Go Buffalo!
The above seems common sense to me, but I get very confused when I start to think about the SEC. An undefeated Alabama will get the #1 seed and would be playing in Atlanta. Even if they lose a game, they'd be a contender for a seat in the playoff even if they lost, so I think we hope for their undefeated streak to continue?
So in a scenario where Alabama and Clemson are granted playoff games, an undefeated Michigan makes sense as the #2 in Arizona. But lets play what if Michigan drops a game. Assuming that game is The Game, OSU is going to be in the playoff (assuming they don't botch the Big Ten Championship game. That would leave Michigan vying for a spot against Washington (see above, woo WSU and Colorado), Louisville, Florida and Auburn.
Given that, I am scared an Alabama team with its only loss being to Auburn would be more likely to get in to the playoff over us - so I'll be cheering for Alabama in the Iron Bowl, though The Game will be over by the time the Iron Bowl reaches halftime, and if we win - go war eagle!
What have I missed or got wrong?

|22 weeks 3 days ago||Where you are from||
I believe that's probably a major factor. If you grew up in a city with a successful college team, it skews you towards the college game - see Columbus. If you grew up in a city with a pro team, but no competitive college team, you probably prefer the nfl- see Cleveland.
I have little to no interest in the NFL. I used to watch Cleveland, but found I no longer have time for football both Saturday and Sunday.
While being a Browns fan probably contributed to my lack of interest, I also believe I was turned off by the entitled nature of the players. As I grew older, I related ticket prices to their salaries.
|22 weeks 6 days ago||Happy||
Halloween party at 5.30.. this means I can watch the game without 22 3 year olds running around. Instead, only my 3 :P
|23 weeks 4 days ago||While I agree with you||
Their debauchery serves their intended purpose. How many stadiums in the country intimidate the other team's fans? Others may boast about creating a home field advantage through crowd noise, but OSU intimidates other fans from even coming to the stadium.
What people outside of Columbus do not realize is that even rational people in Columbus think this is the way football is everywhere. I live just north of Columbus and took friends to AA for The Game a few years back, they were flabberghasted at how polite everyone was to them despite their OSU jerseys.
That being said, I wore my UM jacket to 2 years worth of MBA classes and never had a real problem. I went to The Game with Seth a few years back, the worst we got was a few threats and swears. Don't respond when they yell at you, and you will be fine. If you don't get spit on, or a beer dumped on you - consider yourself lucky.

Good morning all. I signed up for PS Vue on Friday after reading alot of this thread. I am still by no means a PS Vue expert.
I've read alot of this thread, but havent seen these specific questions answered:
1. When at a public wifi, is it better to use the PS Vue Mobile app, or to use BTN2Go.
2. Will the PS Vue mobile app only work when connected to your own wifi network?
I have decent wifi coverage, but was disappointed at how frequently PS Vue had to cache content when watching walking dead sunday night. I'd had to invite people over, or try to cast from my phone to a TV at a party and have that experience for a game. This weekend's game on BTN will be my first time trying to use PS Vue for a game as last week I used my HD antenna.

Lived my whole life in Ohio. I am so used to it that it catches me off guard when a waiter/waitress glances oddly when we point out who's paying for whom.
Given modern billing systems I don't see why this isn't standard. There exists simply too many chances for inequality. Between people having kids, numerous beers, or salad only eating wives, our bills would rarely be even splits. Too often this has turned into a free rider situation where someone orders 5 appetizers knowing they aren't paying full price.
What is the real opposition to separate checks? I've never understood why it isn't standard practice everywhere?

I'm not sure if its internal brainwashing, or the marketing MBA but I may be a little too into the kool-aid. I do believe a corporation can try to acquire good will that will bring top of mind presence when a consumer faces purchasing decisions.
Example - Dove's recent ad campaign for 'real beauty'. Sure - they want to sell you soap, but their message is that they are a company that supports men and women of all shapes sizes and colors.
Nationwide is trying to send a message that they care about children - obviously there are alot of people who are not receptive to the message coming from an insurance company.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Nationwide Ad||
Disclaimer: I'm biased because I work there. I had nothing to do with the commercial, but I do understand where we are coming from.
The reality is that children die every day because of preventable accidents. Read more from the CDC. Nationwide does alot of things I'm not proud of, but speaking up for children is one they do reliably, respectably, consistently, and more than any other - financially.
Children's Hospital in Columbus (the premier childrens hospital in central ohio) is now named after Nationwide for a $50 million dollar grant.
They aren't trying to sell you insurance with the ad, if they were they would have stuffed 'Chicken Parm, you taste so good' down your throat.
Instead they are trying to raise awareness where others have not. An ad about texting and driving would fall in the same vein, in my opinion - but its been done.
Its not just a front, the company sends out internal literature to employees - and its not a sales pitch - the corprate discount ensures any non-call center staff will at least get a quote.
As far as the criticim as to 'tell me how to prevent it, dont fear monger' - SB ad time is a little expensive, if you really want to learn about simple steps you can take around your house -

Would we have been better off hoping to be a 2-4 seed in the same section as Villanova?
|3 years 2 weeks ago||2 things||
#1 - KenPom not always right. Please let our team be aware of that througout the BTT.
#2 - I wonder what IU's loss does for our kenPom winning percentages?
conflicting thoughts, I know.

I don't like being on the outside of an mgoinsidejoke. Can someone elaborate?
|3 years 3 weeks ago||I care||
While I don't want our players wearing themselves out, I relish the opportunity for another win over OSU (because I live in Columbus) or Wisconsin (to steal their 2 seed).
If we beat Wisconsin on a neutral site, maybe the seeding committee forgets they blew us out in AA .

We've been drinking since 10 pst. Started at hall, and the day has been downhill since the Kathryn hall cab. Then to the taco truck in Yountville. Tried the reds there, was disappointed by the increase in price since the last visit. Stopped by v sattui and bought a few bottles for tonight, with one last stop at van Der Heyden before heading back here to the condo.
It was harder with the twins, but they were mostly well received..
|3 years 4 weeks ago||Addendum||
I was so excited for this, but apparently they close in the 'winter'?
|3 years 5 weeks ago||this||
Was useful. I have this, and have never used it as a perk.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||sizes||
Carter is still in 9-12 month stuff. His legs are long enough for 12m pants, but they look ridiculously large because of how skinny he is.
Ainsley is rocking 12 month stuff. She was walking at 11 months, and is only a few days away from finding a way around the gated in area we've created for them in the living room.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||No good babysitter||
My mother in law watches our twins 9-5 M-F. This is her vacation too. I don't trust either of my parents to watch them when I am out of the house.
We're going to Cali to see numerous friends, but taking 3 of the 11 days to go to Napa. We have a free place to stay in Cupertino. If we get brave, we may try and meet halfway with my family in San Diego.
Try having twins, you get used to failure. That being said, we won't give up trying to have some sense of normality.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||no luck||
We called 6 weeks ago, and there were no reservations for even 4 people available.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Doing Well||
They are doing well. Little man is in the 0th percentile, and is frequently bullied by his 'little' sister. They caused me an unmeasurable amount of stress, and I have far more grey hair than I did last year.
That being said, they are worth it. Parenting isn't for everyone, but I'm glad I get the opportunity.
I don't have the negative associations with Napa, but maybe I just got lucky last time. We found a condo for 500 for 3 nights for a 3BR, right in the heart of downtown. I know food will be expensive, but that's my wife's thing. It looks like its going to be sunny and 72 on Saturday - hopefully some great weather to let the twins take in the views.
I'm waiting for a Hello post to pass on the hand-me-downs..
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Yup||
That's on the itinerary.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||the kids aren't even 21||
the kids aren't even 21 months. (See my avatar) They just hit 12 months.
My wife rarely drinks - we're going to Napa primarly because she and her friend want to go to Ad Hoc, The Farm, etc.
I'm going to watch MSU-UM from the BBQ bar there, and anything else on top of that is gravy.
I fully understand the opposition to kids in Napa, but our kids will appreciate the scenery there just as much as they would 'enjoy' a costumed giant animal. (No offense to Disney, just don't think 12 month old's would appreciate it).
Wife and I have been through a rough year, and this is a break for us. Her mother watches the kids while we work, so she needs the break as much as we do. Not asking for sympathy, but rather constructive advice for how to have a good time with little babies.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Afraid you are right||
So the last time we were there, we went for a day and managed go to do alot really cheaply.
domain chandon had free tastings before 10. St Supery had a free tasting as long as you made a purchase. Sterling had B1G1 gondola rides before noon. That included 4 tastings for like $20. Castella Amarillo (spelling?) was brand new the year we went and had free tastings. After that we hit up the picnic place (V Sattui?) and got out for lunch less than $20. Our splurge for the day was Van Der Hayden to try to late harvest cab.
Pricing that out now puts you in the hundreds of dollars. I'm hoping there are lesser known wineries with tours that would just be happy to have visitors in the middle of winter, but maybe I'm just too used to the midwest and the late 90s?
|3 years 5 weeks ago||clarification||
We rented a condo through VRBO in downtown napa. We all wanted to be able to stay together, and have rooms for the kids. First time parent, so I can't imagine leaving the kids unattended in a hotel, even if in the adjoining room.
Further clarification, 289/night would probably be on the high side of my idea of 'budget friendly'..
|3 years 5 weeks ago||Nomenclature||
My wish is simple: a differntiation between competitions where the victor is not debatable at the end of the competition and those where there is some sort of 'judgement' involved. I don't deny that the athletes all perform at levels I could not, and when I say that I don't believe things such as figure skating should be sports, I mean no offense.
However, I include figure skating, Ice Dancing, any non-time only snow sports, etc to be competitions, rather than sports. Image if a touchdown's point value was determined by how tight the spiral on the pass was 'judged' to be.
Now if figure skating or the snowboaring half pipe competition were conducted in some fashion like weight lifting, I would have no objection. If you can do the 'triple super toe axel doopity do' and no one else can - then you win. However, I understand why this is no viable, as the next athlete who cannot perform that stunt might be able to do a 'reverse ninja inverted toe grab' .
|3 years 5 weeks ago||others||
There have been a few other kickstarts lately.. I know there was one on a documentary by one of the players, and I forget whether Vincent Smith used it for the Pahokee greenhouse project. I think I participated in another one, but can't remember for the life of me what it was..
I was just about to post this, glad someone else beat me to it.
|3 years 6 weeks ago||well worth it||
Tix were expensive, but we'll worth it!

I work in the arena district. There are numerous bars with cheap happy hours. The R Bar is a hockey bar that is a good place to relax , unless there is a hockey game and it will be packed.
While the arena is only a few miles from the Schott, traffic right before the game is horrible. Make your way to campus an hour or so early. There are 2 bars within walking distance of the Schott - Varsity Club and BW3. I'd reccommend BW3 and its only2 blocked further.
OSU fans are nearly as feisty during basketball season as they are in football. Its also ridiculously cold out, so you won't have many people on your walk - which is when you'd usually run into trouble.
There will be scalpers outside, but tickets for this game will probably be at least face value until after the first few minutes of the game. With this team, the game could be over by then (either way.. )
The schott is a decent venue, and there will be a small section cheering for Caris from Pickertington. However, the fans will be dying for a win - its been a bad season for them. They were civil the past 2 years because everyone loved Trey - the guy who OSU passed on, but clearly wanted to go to OSU.
Lets hope we play up to our ability, not like we have against Iowa and Indiana. A road win in Columbus would look great on the resume.

The game is old enough I think a pseudo-spoiler is acceptable. If you have not played but plan to, stop reading this comment. Really, stop. ... When you have played for enough hours that a double elder dragon attack doesn't present a problem, the final fight is disappointing.

So I came up with the ticket spreadsheet a few years back. I always planned to do something better. Now I have twins, so I don't have time. If someone wants to program a new solution, I bet it would be appreciated.
Until then, I plan to selfishly attempt to promote a new tab I created on the ticket spreadsheet to enable mgoposters to sell/trade Michigan memorabilia. After my twins were born, a few generous people sent me hand-me-downs. Living in Columbus those were hard to come by.
I'd like to pass on the good will, so I'll be listing the clothes they can no longer fit. I'm guessing this would be something that would be useful to many of us as I see the overwhelming support a new family member is announced.
|3 years 20 weeks ago||Ace williams||
I had never heard the name before today. I live in Columbus and have had like 10 people facebook/email/text me about his story. Is there any possible fire at the root of his smoke, or is he just a loud mouth with no content?

Very few times this is actually relevant/related.
|3 years 21 weeks ago||So complex||
If someone is doing this by hand, it would blow my mind.
I was a huge band geek in HS, and was really proud of our marching band. My best friend and I petitioned the director to let us write a drill for our senior year. He told us he would consider it, but warned us of how complex there were.
We were both top 5 in our class (inner city high school, so thats not as impressive as it might be elsewhere) but this was one of the hardest things I did in HS. We thought we had it perfect, and the director gave us 2 practices to team it to see how it would go - and as he predicted it was a disaster.
Attempting to teach kids who have been drilled for years exact timing and spacing to march at different speeds than the person next to them does not go over well. Our crossing patterns completely fogot to take into account the length of a trombone. What on paper had been brilliant (in our eyes) was a disaster on the field (Hey- Al Borges!).. After 5 weeks of re-design we finally had an acceptable version. I put more work into that drill than I did my AP physics class.
Whether written by hand or by computer what these bands are doing these days blows my mind.

So in a display of incredible lack of ability to plan, we scheduled our family vacation to end the same day as the Notre Dame game. I will be halfway between Hilton Head and Columbus b the time the game starts, and it appears that is a dearth of not only places to watch the game, but even any kind of decent accomodations where I could stay and watch the game overnight. Any reccomendations?

My twins are 5 months old. Prepare for the hardest thing you've ever done.
A few fellow mgousers sent some little girl MGoHandMeDowns, so I can certainly send the ones my little girl has outgrown your way if you are interested.
|3 years 34 weeks ago||Thurmans||
I second the suggestion of Thurman's. Its quaint, local, and delicious. The burgers are not only ridiculously large, but actually taste good. They also server deep fried pretzel bites.
I had schmidt's for lunch today, they have a sausage buffet unequaled in my experience. Way too many jokes to be made, so I'll leave them to your imagination.
Although nowhere near the Horseshoe, Columbus does have one of the 2 best zoo's in the country. While some claim it is the best, I'd still take San Diego every day. They do have little leopard cubs right now that are adorable though.
|3 years 35 weeks ago||Favorite place in Paris||
My personal favorite is a small pseudo-touristy place called La Refufe Des Fondu. As the name implies, its a fondue joint. However, the kicked is that they server you wine from baby bottles. You'll leave in the best of spirits, and a memory that will last a lifetime.
The place is 2-3 blocks from Sacre couer. If you have some time in the area, I highly reccomend it!
|3 years 38 weeks ago||thanks||
As someone who lives out of state, I appreciate the heads up. The clearance items aren't my style, but maybe they are for someone else. The last time moe's had a sale like this I cleaned house with what many others disliked.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||tried it||
2 years ago, all we had was a European directv package for my father in law to watch soccer. I used a hdtv antenna for network shows.
I managed fine with netflix until football season came aroud and half of the Michigan games were on espn, or btn. (live in columbus so Osu took the network spots usually.)
If you have sports covered, you'll be fine.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||always.||

That's the rule for ribs. The longer they cook at a lower temperature the better they will end up. Ribs are also tricky because of size, and many grills don't maintain a consistent temperature through out the grill. Learning to control charcoal was too much work for me, but the investment in a nice Weber grill did wonders for mine. It has 3 gas controls so I leave the center one off to remove the possibilty of flame ups.
The best ribs I've ever had were from a guy who smoked his ribs with charcoal from Hawaii and wood from a rainforest in Fiji or something. I think he said he smoked them for 8 hours.
|3 years 39 weeks ago||pigfoot||
I used to make my own, tried many different recipes and realized my wife and I share a palate that appreciates spice and scovilles more than most.
Then one time at the jazz n ribfest I decided to try as many sauces as I could. I came across a stand called pigfoot and asked if they had a sampler with all their sauces. They said they didn't prepare any with their killer sauce but hed open a bottle. He warned me most people didn't like it, but I was in love immediately.
It turns out I love all of their sauces, and can't make anything that competes on my own. Their killer sauce is great for heat, and kids LOVE their applivious. Their sweet has won numerous competitions here in central ohio.
I entered a rib cookoff last year, during the power outage the weekend of the 4th , and even without all my stuff got 3rd overall (out of 42) and won the kids vote. I combined a couple pigfoot sauces and added some passionfruit wasabi jelly we brought back from Hawaii...
I actually went to the home of the owners of pigfoot and bought a few gallons. They were nice enough to give me a few tricks that have made my ribs much better:
Now I know this won't be accepted, but if in a hurry drop your ribs into a pot of boiling water with bay leaves for 10 minutes before smoking/grilling. You won't win a competition, but will have tender ribs in 90 minutes.

|3 years 43 weeks ago||Lurking||
While were talking about important things in life, validation for significant lurking would be nice. Many are fervent readers, but infrequent posters. Someone who has been visiting the site once a day for the last 4 years should be entitled to start a thread just as much as the idiot who has posted 'AWESOME' 100 times.
Just a thought.
|3 years 43 weeks ago||Question:||
Would this camera result in better stills of the games? (not complaining about current ones....) if so I could be convinced via kickstarter to throw in a few bucks...
I know nothing of photography, but do love great in game photos.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Possibility||
Maybe what he means is that he expects that his RB should be able to consistently have more success one on one against an undersized CB than the bubble screen would? This is dependant on a RB that is either big enough to just bowl him over, or agile enough to make him miss... Lets hope Green is both.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Welcome to the club||
As a 3 month veteran of the father of twins club, let me first congratulate you, and then warn you. The next 3 months will be one of the most challenging times you will ever have.
I barely remember the first month our twins were alive, I think the part of your brain that is able to store memories shuts down when it is completely sleep deprived. This is advice #1 - forget day/night, sleep when they do. I don't care if its 7am or 4pm or 9pm, sleep when they do.
You want to be a great father to them, and right now the way you can do that best it by being the best husband you can. Your wife will be even more stressed than you are, and will have twice as much responsability as you do - so do what you can. Wash the bottles, change the diapers, learn to swaddle them quickly.
But most importantly, ignore 99% of the advice you receive. Your children will be like no other children before or after. We swore we would never sleep in the bed with our twins, but after 36 hours of no sleep we fell asleep with them on our chests. I honestly believe it was the right thing to do, because it was the only option.
We too had premie twins, and you will be flooded with information about how to best take care of them. They may eat fine from your wife's breast, or they may need formula. They may sleep fine, or they may need hours of kangaroo time.
Should you hit that moment when you havent slept for ages, and they are both crying and you can't figure out why - just remember everything you went through to get them. The moment will pass - and the twins will be okay. Should you in a moment of weakness ever contemplate how much easier having just one would have been - NEVER EVER EVER voice it. Trust me on that one.
Find your local twins club, they will have tons of useful information. Parents of multiples are eligible for quite a few discounts - enfamil and similac will both give you a free case of formula. Hit me up if you ever have questions.

The closest thing I've seen in real life to this was Wally Szczerbiak at the indoor pool at Miami University. He stood far beyond NBA 3 point range and made something like 45 of 50, with the first 24 in a row. We would chuck the ball football style to him, and he made shots over and over. We were just screwing around, but it was that day I realized he wasn't your average MAC player..

|3 years 51 weeks ago||Superstition||
I'm not usually superstitious, but there have been 2 occaisions I couldn't fight it.
The first was the UM-MSU game a few years back. I went upstairs in the middle of a party because I didn't want to offend any of my ridiculous OSU homer friends who were laughing at us losing. Moments after I went upstairs the comeback began. Each time we scored I ran to the stairs and high fived my one UM buddy who was over. Then back to my room to watch the game.
Throughout the end of the season I started to notice a trend where really good things would happen when I watched the games holding both of my newborn twins. I picked up both twins right before Burke stole the ball at the end of the MSU game. I gave one of the twins to my wife to feed for the last minute of the Indiana game. I held both of them for the whole VCU game, and only had the baby girl through the first half of the Kansas game. I went and grabbed baby boy, and next thing you knew the comeback was on.
When burke made that shot, I coudlnt help by scream, and though I tried to keep it on the inside, baby girl was startled, and woke up screaming. The wife made me give baby girl to her so the other one wouldn't wake up - but promised not to take her away from the TV.
I watched the whole Florida game with both twins.
My wife has already told me that if I keep them up next week that its all on me when they start screaming and wont sleep all night. I told the boss this morning if we win Saturday, I'm taking tuesday off. I may not sleep all night monday - but it would be worth it.
