01/30/2017 - 5:48pm Echo chambers unite

Here's the thing. You say Brian's in an echo chamber and in the same breath say that other opinions (Brian's, in this case) aren't of any value. That's an echo chamber. Dialogue is essential to breaking down barriers and learning more. Shutting it down does no one any good whatsoever and it creates the kind of miasmic climate that is pervasive in politics. 

I don't think you're completely wrong about the "keep the sports blog on sports" thing, and on this website they seem to do a fairly decent job with keeping it that way. However, if we're talking about the @mgoblog Twitter account, which is (to my knowledge) Brian's personal and only account, I don't see why he should have to refrain from stating his thoughts on whatever issue he'd like to. He has a voice. If people don't want to listen, then don't. That's pretty easy, especially if it's Twitter or a website like this one.

So who's the jerk going through and upvoting? Sheesh.

11/30/2016 - 5:14pm Double posts are awesome!

Here's a cat:


11/30/2016 - 5:11pm Question

Is it for certain that Peppers is leaving this year? Sorry if this has been discussed...I may have missed a confirmation post somewhere. 

10/25/2016 - 2:59pm As I said, what Brian wrote

As I said, what Brian wrote isn't wrong. I was just predicting he'd get some flack from others because people can't separate facts from emotion.

Also: Brutal as in "brutally honest." Given the circumstances, pointing out that someone has been awful at their job for their entire career may warrant that terminology. Now is it GoT/WD brutal, I don't know.

10/25/2016 - 12:42pm Wow that eulogy was brutal,

Wow that eulogy was brutal, Brian. I'm not saying that it's refutable, just that you're a braver man than me. Prepare thyself for thy mentions.

Today is turning out to be alright.

I enjoyed that.

10/05/2016 - 6:35pm Small request for Brian

One of my favorite parts about the charts was the comments that you put in the far right column. Those have disappeared since you've added PFF grades in there. Might I request a return of the comments? Yes, I love the data, but the often snarky or whistful comments was what really put it to A++ territory for me.

07/14/2016 - 7:50pm Damn that's a funny thread.

Damn that's a funny thread. Thanks for sharing.

03/19/2016 - 11:26am You're only making it worse for yourself baby-hater!

11/16/2015 - 1:18pm Can confirm--their PA

Can confirm--their PA announcer was horrendous. He sounded more constipated than Bruce Springsteen singing "Santa's Coming to Town."

11/12/2015 - 5:34pm Dreisbach's the first one to come to mind, growing up

That's offensive to all snakes everywhere.

Does anyone else see this guy and think of Mike Leach?  No?  I'm the only one?  Okay.

07/29/2015 - 3:19pm It's all you koalas ever

It's all you koalas ever think about.  Sex, sex, sex.  No wonder ya'll have chlamydia.

04/19/2015 - 10:38pm Now I'm just a nobody posting

Now I'm just a nobody posting on an internet board, seems to me that there's no way an offense should be that much father ahead of the defense, especially with in the first year of a program.  I'd guess, as others have already pointed out, that their defense is pretty bad.

Their offensive play makers did look fast, though.

The one of tyrome biggums dancing is pretty good.  I liked Heiko's smilie face as well.

Section 213 Row 14; look for the dude with the shaved head and small, Colonel Chamberlain mustache (with beard).

Did you ever find bugs bunny attractive when he put on a dress and play a girl bunny?

02/06/2014 - 8:07am What about a *fairly* happy

What about a *fairly* happy ending?

Many of those signs were funny in a sad way, but whoa do those pictures make Indy look like a shit-town. The place isn't that bad.

11/27/2013 - 7:07pm Hey go to town.

Don't live in fear.  Live in love.  You can get the Herpes from beer pong, ya know.

11/25/2013 - 2:45pm Totally agree about the cost.

Totally agree about the cost. It's simply ridiculous considering the sport is an "amateur" one. And it seems like just a few years ago, the tickets were close to half the cost that they are now. As you indicated, it's cheaper and often more comfortable watching at home.

11/25/2013 - 2:18pm Well, I know nothing about

Well, I know nothing about football, but I have heard of Bo, so I'll inspire them by singing "Once in a Lifetimes" over and over again but replacing "Same as it ever was" with "THE TEAM!!!"

Then, to get the team's brain grapes juicin', I'll discuss the merits of government buildings and why air is actually a really fantastic thing for all of us.  Then, just before the game starts, I'll do a little dance for them, confuse-a-cat style.

Lastly, after the team loses horribly because, again, I don't know a damn thing about American football, I'll knock out my interview with the media.  Everyone else will be going, WTF?  but I'll think everything's great cos I've been high as a kite since I woke up for glazed donut munchies this morning.

I can't stop clicking. Save me unicorns and rainbows and sunshine. Save me.

With all the crap the kid takes, I'd honestly be okay with one every week.
