OT - What would you like to see at MGO?

Submitted by canzior on January 16th, 2019 at 1:53 PM

I was thinking about this topic midseason and it seemed a bit OT, so I shelved it until the season was over. Then BPONE assaulted me, but Michigan basketball is bringing me back out of the darkness. I saw a post about whether or not people would like more OSU content on the board.    There are a lot of Michigan sites out there, most just pumping out tidbits of semi-useful information constantly, but there are some things I find interesting.  

I love the Opponent Watch, and I think it's "brevity" makes it great, but I would enjoy a longer version, maybe after every 4 weeks about the general direction of the teams, important injuries etc. 

Maybe a story every so often during the season about teams other than Michigan. Not a human interest story about Georgia Football, but maybe a conference rundown or thoughts opinions on some of the top teams in the country, since that's where we all would like Michigan to be.

An occasional article about Wolverines that have gone pro is popular as well and I think 247 has a list of the NFL guys each week.

I also would enjoy an annual or semi-annual piece co-written by Brian and Ramzy at 11W. (Hate the sin, love the sinner and all that.)  He's a hilarious writer, one of the few on par with Brian and his sense of humor. 

I also wouldn't oppose a non-sports related post.  Maybe a UV without sports or politics or religion? Ehh..maybe.

Any suggestions or things you'd love to see?

We have options:

Mouth Breather Mondays 

Toilet Cooler Tuesdays 

Wed My Sister Wednesdays 




this was suppose to be in reply to Hatter suggesting we have something on our blog about Ohio like they have Michigan Mondays. 

Double edit: 

Thinking about it...It might be funnier as porn suggestions

Feel free to write you own content.  But- no rational reason to take up a thread on describing it.  Just do it and post it as a diary.

It seems like useless thread day.

I would like to see a breakdown of different run plays and formations to help refute the fans that complain that our offense is too basic or boring. We could call it Breakdown Sports or something.

Agreed. Not until we are competitive vs. OSU should we be posting any regular OSU focused content. That makes 0 sense. Lets talk about how great our rival is and get us hyped up for our annual choke fest. 

Maybe we win 2 in a row then we can start that discussion, but who knows how long thats gonna be...

I'd like to see Simpson added to the banner - maybe doing his big walk.  

Unless the idea was to keep him off of the banner as motivation to go out and destroy all comers, in which case carry on.

A mobile app without ads. I would pay a $3 per month Subscription for such a thing. 

A way to sort threads by number of upvotes/downvotes the OP gets so all the OT garbage gets pushed down the page.
