MGoProfile to Return This Week

Submitted by Six Zero on June 18th, 2013 at 8:00 AM
Hey friends, hope the offseason has been spelled at least in part by this phenomenon known as summer.

If not, we're proud to announce that the MGoProfile feature will return this week, on Friday, to be exact.

From there we'll try to run one of these at least every two weeks for the rest of the offseason. I say "we" because the talented M-Wolverine is slated to join the cause of providing a unique glimpse at some of the standout members of MGoBlog.

Again, look for the feature to return Friday, June21!

I think a John Lennon / Yoko Ono style pic with Brian and your interviewee would really help us get a feel for who they really are.  Make it so.

Looking back at past MGoProfiles, it's sort of interesting to see how many guys who were "worthy" of them don't post here much anymore. TomVH, Formerly Anonymous, jamiemac, etc.

My theory on that is that MGoBlog started as a way for a nuanced section of Michigan fans to talk about the sports programs.  Now that MGoBlog is so big, there has been an influx of the O$U and Ped State crowds.  The intellectual side to the site is being replaced by "Ow My Balls!"

You hit the nail on the head.  I actually enjoy engaging with fans from other fanbases, RDT excluded.  I meant that the people here who declare their rigidity towards recruits, call other teams and fanbases by derogotory names, and add nothing but snark to the threads are what is hurting the boards.  I just worded it poorly.

I think that the cutesy snark on here has kind of reached critical mass.  I'm guilty of it too, but the board is kind of drifting towards being a caricature of itself.  I'm of the opinion that tl;dr is in exact contrast to what the boards were supposed to be, but there is a lot of saccharine out there nowadays...

and I still think we're vastly more sophisticated here than almost any other sports blog out there. There's been more guys here who say things like "LOL...Urban Crier. Jk. O$$U!" but they still get negged constantly. Beating a dead horse, but if the old system came back, that kind of comment/poster would be quickly eliminated

I'm still around. They still invite me onto the podcasts. I lurk a lot. There was a 3-4 year stretch (beginning in the halo scan days) where I posted every day, as often as I could. It's worn off. I'm a little bored with the MGoForum these days. That said, I am more than disappointed in my diary output the last couple of seasons. I want to get back into that

thanks anyhow. I thought this quote from the profile on MGoShoe was interesting, given that it was done in 2010 under the old points regime:

"The MGoPoints system isn’t perfect, but its obvious effect on minimizing trolls and jerky behavior in general is greatly appreciated. I doubt I’d be here without it because I’m not interested in participating in forums chock full of douchery."

However, getting profiled on here would be a surefire sign that I have made it in this world.  Contrary to getting the degree and it making me feel that way.
