thank you for the assist I Bleed Maize and Blue.  figured this might be important to a number of regulars around here.

Kickstarter is a website that MGoBlog used to crowd-source donations to fund the annual HTTV preview magazine for football, basketball and hockey. 

it's a pretty popular site where creative types go to appeal to people to fund their ideas for magazines, games, music, art - etc.

Kickstarter hacked, user data stolen

The crowd-funding site says hackers broke into its systems and made off with data. Apparently credit card numbers escaped the attack.

breaking bad is going to have an extended "final" season. 

i believe they are going to break up the final 16 episodes over 2 years.  8 this summer/fall, and the final 8 sometime in 2013. 

AFAIK they haven't announced when in 2013 the final episodes would air - early/mid/late 2013.

OK St leads the nation in turnover margin - +1.8/game

by comparison - Michigan is #34 - at +0.40

i think ok st. has been poor defensively - but has been able to offset that with creating turnovers.

also, how good do you have to be defensively when you average 50+ a game?

as i type this - OK St - INT

you should be ok with just getting the standard time warner package  -

ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 - 90% of michigan games have been on one of these 3 channels the past couple years.

1-3 times a year - michigan will end up only on the big10 network.  usually your delaware st./ bowling green type games.  you can add the $5-10/mo. sports package to get BTN - or go to a bar/watch online for those games. 

the HD package is $10/mo.  worth it if you are going to spend the $$$ on a good tv.

05/03/2011 - 10:49pm even though i wish he would

even though i wish he would return, seems like this year was his best chance to make the first round with so many guys staying in school who would have been ahead of him, not to mention the incoming crop of one and dones @ kentucky, louisville, unc and st johns (?).  

can't complain too much - this is what happens when john beilein recruits kids with potential nba skills - there's a chance they will leave before they're ready/we as fans want them to.

i wish him the best - maybe it will show some 2013 and beyond kids - that you can get to the nba by way of michigan again.

by the way - dear michigan <blank> hating god - dude, when are you going to let up?

02/15/2011 - 4:32pm i have to agree with those

i have to agree with those above advocating for Microsoft Security Essentials. 

was a long time avast user and switched to MSE on my home PC shortly before the the great MgoVirus scare of last month.  It alerted me to something trying to infect my PC on the 2nd or 3rd day of MgoInfection.

was still using avast on my work PC, and it never alerted me to anything even though i spend vast amounts of time on this site when i should be working.

the settings in MSE are pretty simple and basic.  it updates itself quietly, the scheduled scan settings are simple, and i haven't run into any issues using it.  it's also found a couple viruses lurking in some downloaded files that avast never discovered. 

 

@ Maizedout1982 - i was given a replica helmet a couple years ago as a gift, and the bar in the middle can be removed.  the screws are "stripped" so that any screwdriver you try to use can't get any torque? grip? on the screws, but if you try hard enough, you can unscrew them in about 5-10 minutes and remove the bar.  then, after half a bottle of johnny walker black, you can put the helmet on your head and run around in your underpants, flailing your arms and legs about in celebration when the defense wins the game vs. Illinois... 

or, that's what i've heard other people do with the replica helmets.

wasn't it reported that the sugar bowl reps appealed to the NCAA and OSU to keep the marquee malefactors in the game.  i believe they said it was to "maintain the integrity of the game".  translation - we haven't sold out this goddamn game, and if TP and boys aren't in it, no one is going to watch, and no one is buying the rest of these tickets.

01/11/2011 - 12:39am What is the over/under on the

What is the over/under on the # of years the NCAA takes to complete the "investigation" into cam? 

it took them 5 years for them to hand down the punishment on USC, carroll and bush.  and in that case they had 2 pissed off wannabe agents that bush and fam reneged on, countless receipts of items/expenses signed for by bush, a house that was occupied by the bush family one day, and empty the next when investigative reporters came a'knockin.

i wonder if the guys @ yahoo sports are licking their chops with this one.  the only problem is, i don't see anyone talking on the auburn side, the mississippi st side, and def not the newton side.

i just tried logging on using IE and i get that the website cannot be displayed.

site must be down - i'm sure they're working on it

05/22/2010 - 8:20pm i checked mgovideo in mozilla

i checked mgovideo in mozilla firefox and i got the same thing - blank white page

the site loaded somewhat normally in IE - i thought there had been a site update - but in IE it looks like it had reverted to the older version of the site.

seems like there might be something wrong with the site?  dunno - i know the admin of mgovideo is over here alot - so he will probably see this.

short-term solution - maybe change your browser?  don't have chrome, or safari so don't know if they work.

every magazine has their own criteria.

they might think that UM might not be worth $11k/ per year (in-state) for the quality of education you receive.

they might weigh teacher/student ratio more heavily, therefore smaller schools might have an advantage.

maybe they don't take research facilities, endowment, alumni and kick-ass helmets into consideration.

08/07/2009 - 10:23pm just wondering...
how many

just wondering...

how many pages should be required for someone to look back on on the mgoboard sidebar before a code "negbang" is ordered?

i saw what happened earlier today - and i took a good 10 mins of searching mgo.licio.us and mgoboard before i posted the o-zone michigan preview link.

i didn't want that to happen to me.

5 pages - i think etiquette has to be to scan back to at least 5 of 20 under the "New" tab on the mgoboard sidebar before you post something that has been reported in the MSM before you post here. if the freep's got it - more than likely, it has been posted here for at least 12 hours.

not trying to be a dick to the OP - just trying to figure out what the rules around here should be.

08/07/2009 - 7:21pm i still think that ice cube's

i still think that ice cube's "death certificate" is probably the best 'gangsta rap' album ever made.

still listen to it - almost 20 years later.

ice cube has definitely fallen off since then.

there are some clunkers - but overall, IMHO, still the best album made during the west coast boom of the early '90s

08/07/2009 - 2:39pm well, i don't think it is

well, i don't think it is necessarily positive - they think we go 5-7 - best win on the season being either purdue or western - it is better than what i expected from an OSU site.

it only sounds positive because i am sure most of us were just expecting something more along the lines of "meatchicken (hur, hur) is teh suck! Buckzzz roooolzzzz! tressel is the only dude it is coolz to spank it 2. and herbie."

although i agree with them that stevie brown's new hybrid position, and how he plays in this new position will go a long way in determining whether this defense turns it around this season. to me, graham, martin and a healthy d-warren are the only proven commodities on this defense.

07/28/2009 - 2:11pm if you use mozilla - there

if you use mozilla - there are many extensions out there that will do this for you.

i use superdragandgo - it's an older extension that isn't supported anymore but you can make it work if you are nerdified enough, like me. you can grab a link, and throw it anywhere on the page and it will open in a new tab.

doesn't explorer have an option to right-click and open in a new tab?

06/17/2009 - 2:15pm The way advertising works is

The way advertising works is all the stuff is loaded from an external source—which is why Ad Block works. So they know exactly how many loads they're getting and of what without anyone having to tell them.

sooo... please explain to me in terms that a simpleton like myself can understand - i use mozilla with adblock - if i use adblock on this site - do you get less money from the 75 times i obsessively check this page per day? or does it not matter? i will gladly disable adblock on this site if it gets more money to you.

06/11/2009 - 1:54pm didn't martin - or someone

didn't martin - or someone connected to the athletic dept - say that we will always play a directional michigan school - because it not only helps those schools - but it helps the state of michigan as well - by giving these (sometimes) weaker teams a shot in the arm with a big payday and a guarantee to be on tv?

06/09/2009 - 2:29pm like i said, maybe it was a

like i said, maybe it was a dopey question on my part.

the basis of my question was not to bag on the old way of doing things - because the zone blocking was only started in 2006? lineman didn't have to do a lot of getting to the second level. at the time - maybe bulk was better suited to the power-i offense. therefore - bulk em up.

06/09/2009 - 2:22pm i don't remember the 'eat a

i don't remember the 'eat a pizza' story being about mitchell - but about pat massey - who as brian has pointed out - was impossibly tall to be effective @ DT. it wasn't so much his weight that made him ineffective - but his inability to be low enough at the point of attack. i would assume the staff at that time felt that a 6'8" DT might work if he were heavier.

i just think the new staff's focus is on quickness more than bulk. i am sure gittleson's plan was to get everyone stronger - but it seems to me had a different philosophy that the focus was strength & size over strength & speed.

as magnus has pointed out - a couple of guys who have changed positions have added weight. that's basically what i was looking for.

my initial concern was with guys like wilkins, who may be undersized to play another position (only a high school junior, i know). what about guys like b smith or even marvin robinson if he makes the transition to lb from safety? can these guys put on weight effectively to play a new position if they are a tweener?

06/09/2009 - 1:42pm that's kind of what i am

that's kind of what i am asking.

while the old regimes idea to put on weight was - eat a pizza every night

has barwis shown that his methods are able to turn a LB'er into a DE if needed.

i would ask if anyone knew of any of these transformations @ wvu - but i doubt anyone who is here followed wvu that closely prior to RR's arrival.

i don't doubt that he can get someone to lose 10-15lbs of flab and turn it into muscle - but can he pack on the weight effectively if it needs to be 30lbs or more? i know it's only really been 1 year with him - just asking if anyone with a knowledge of his training methods has any idea.

maybe it's just a dopey question on my part - and diet is handled by someone else on the staff

06/07/2009 - 4:56pm point taken dex - i

point taken dex - i understood the hypocrisy of posting "stop criticizing other peoples posts" when i posted.

just wondering what is the need to crap on GBMW because they aren't english majors or football geniuses like bill belichek?

weren't they kind of the first to give the heads up that o'neill was going to leave the team? or that turner may have had some qualifying issues? it may not have been in as eloquent a manner as you all would have liked, but they did have some decent info.

just don't understand what people get out of constantly criticizing them and their site. they're michigan fans just like most of us. what do you get out of crapping all over them?

if i could killfilter certain posters here, i would, or killfilter certain phrases, i would.

i like coming to mgoblog, and think there are a lot of interesting discussions on m football and athletics that go on here. i thought that was the point of this site. so that we are not relegated to read whatever the freep or detnews reporter decided to crap out that week. but, every day it is another "GBMW is retarded" post - it's pointless. we get it - you don't like that site. why post on another site to point out how much you don't like GBMW?

everyone is entitled to their opinion - i just don't understand the hate and vitriol directed at some michigan fans who are probably really nice people. all they are doing is passing along their info and analysis on their own site. they aren't forcing you to read it here. so why post about it here?

06/07/2009 - 2:57pm just a question - if you hate

just a question - if you hate GBMW so much - why do you & others keep going over there just to report it over here and to ridicule? stop going there.

you don't find the info they give to be informative or insightful? they don't use spell or grammar check on their posts? stop going there.

they are michigan fans just like you. when brian first started mgoblog there were ZERO michigan blogs on the internet like it. maybe brian and mgoblog inspired them to start. all GBMW is is another place to get FREE info on michigan. if you don't like it - stop going there. go pay for rivals and scout and any other website that you feel gives good info. if GBMW version of analysis & info is "player A needs to be better to get more better" or "the team needs to score more points than team other side of field" (grammar on purpose) - stop going there

if you don't find their content intelligent or insightful - stop going there.

what do you get out of it? how about instead of wasting your time telling everyone how shitty their content is - start your own blog or diary and do a better job. otherwise - shut up and enjoy what you have here.

the constant need to crap all over someone else's efforts is childish.

grow up and get over yourself.
