META: Info for new MGoBoarders

Every year lots of new people find this corner of the internet, and some struggle to find all the awesome information stored here. First, take a second and scroll up and look under the winged helmet - there are a lot of very useful links. I'm putting some of them here because lots of people have no idea that they exist, and we've seen tons of threads (Where can I watch!?!?) created because... well because people don't know that a sticky thread exists for that.



Not sure who Tacopants is? Slow on the other inside jokes? want to know why Brian has a MS in Computer engineering? There's your answer.


  • "Tacopants"? Tacopants is Jason Avant's eleven-foot tall imaginary friend. Chad Henne spent much of 2005 hitting him between the numbers, which are unfortunately eight feet off the ground and made of dreams. Blessed with infinite eligibility and the ability to sneak on and off the field without alerting the referees -- made of dreams, remember -- Tacopants has taken a lesser role in the offense as Henne matures but still pops up at inopportune times. The term has its genesis in this post.

That's stuff about the guy who runs/owns/is MGoBlog.  Think he's betrayed his ethics? Have a tip/correction? Email is a way better way to do it than a dickish thread.

Want to advertise: Talk to Seth.



Can't start a thread? Not sure if "Denard" is a bad thread title? What's on topic? This isn't Nam, there are rules.

Coming to AA:

Guide to eating and drinking. Zingerman's is good, but overpriced. Maize and Blue is better. /shots fired

Stuck in a car on a Saturday?

And Finally:


Stop making threads about it.

Hope this has been a helpful and informative little diary. Now go enjoy wife day and the rest of the bye week.
