Oy. Talk about a "quit drinking and go to bed" moment.

Honestly just happy that Coach Beilein is staying and that Coach Harbaugh hasn't gone to Oakland (although I'm hearing it's still in play). Hiring Mel Peterson was huge too.

I waited until midnight to click on the post, out of respect.

Quick question - are you able to vote on other comments? I think we're still uncertain what the voting threshold is, but my best guess was 750.

For the Denzel fans among us, I cannot recommend enough the podcast Denzel Washington is the Greatest Actor of All Time Period. It's hosted by comedians Kevin Avery and W. Kamau Bell (who is a super-insightful dude, in addition to being hilarious).

How long until this blog drops ESPN as a recruiting data point? These days, the Worldwide Leader may as well be called "ESPN, FFS".

Right? I feel like using a scholarship for Jeff George Jr would be downright bizarre.

One of those references may have been from me - I've sort of become a single-issue poster since the update removed my voting privileges. 

I do know that taut (over 800 MGoPoints) can vote, so the threshold is likely in that 620-820 range. 750 just seems like the neatest number to me within that range.

06/11/2018 - 4:28pm I think the 500 pts is a…

I think the 500 pts is a guess - and a guess that is a bit low. JBDaddy commented about not seeing thumbs and they're at 627 or so. Maybe it's 750?

If the site update delayed the June 2008 edition of this even a day, then that's probably my biggest beef with 3.0.

06/11/2018 - 4:07pm Seth's recent front-page…

Seth's recent front-page post refers to "trusted users" as 500+ points, so I think you're right about that being the new standard.

First in a series of "How to...MGoBlog 3.0"?

While this may be unnecessarily complicated to pull together, I think a Brian/Seth/HUEL AMA done here, liveblog style, would be super valuable.

I believe it's a points issue, as I (and other posters with point totals in the triple digits and below) am in the same boat.

Love this idea. Would upvote if I could.

I'm also in this boat. Help and/or posbangs are appreciated.

So very impressive.

As a former runner myself, I could never imagine running a 10K on a track. After 25 laps, I would think you'd get dizzy.

I wish upvoting was available to users with low point totals so I could +1 this post.

So the 2019 class might contain a player named after Jalen Rose (albeit with different spelling) and the cousin of Juwan Howard?

I, also, am relieved at this news.

06/06/2018 - 11:50am Based on your post and…

Based on your post and Ma1zeandB1ue's above, I'm going to guess the threshold is 450.

Can we get tomer some upvotes to see if thumbs magically appear at 450?

That's what I started thinking when I saw your post below.

Sorry if I'm blind, but I'm not seeing how to up/down vote these comments.

12/16/2017 - 3:25pm Post-game Handshake

Did anyone else see Coach’s handshake with Bacari after the game? It kinda looked like he blew him off. Surely there wouldn’t be bad blood for Bacari leaving to take this opportunity. Anyone else catch that?

Is it just me, or is our ideal lineup MAAR-Matthews-Duncan-Wagner-Teske?

Z has some slick passes and Eli has a shot but none of the traditional ones have looked consistent enough to lead the crew. Slot in Big Nasty instead, get Wagner as a stretch 4, and go to work.

He's been a favorite since his freshman year. Incredible how he's changed his game since then in order to contribute.

Wilson had a great game, but we aren't in the semis right now without Irvin these last two games.

I was wondering the same thing! If it was me on NCAA Football 2004, I'd totally call those two timeouts to get the ball back. 

12/06/2013 - 2:32pm I think you hit the nail on

I think you hit the nail on the head. That really echoes my favorite made-up abbreviation on the site:

IANAJTTP = "I am not a journalist, that's the point"

12/06/2013 - 2:20pm Agreed

It is sad. This site, or at least the commentors, are less of a community than when I joined. Now, when people dismiss these comments like they were on YouTube or mLive, we as users are doing something wrong.

Nice, I always knew I made the right call not having an avatar. I'm just that anonymous guy with the weird name you can't decide how to pronounce.

11/25/2013 - 10:54pm In Love

I had to listen to that twice to make sure I heard it right. I wasn't sure anyone even knew about Fear of Pop. Weird, yes, but an awesome part of Ben's career.

04/12/2013 - 2:53pm Great post

I've always wanted to suggest having a section of the site that tracks our former basketball players and their exploits either in the US or overseas. Maybe we can use this as a base and create a section once we move to the wiki format this summer.

04/11/2013 - 10:46pm Irvin/GRIII

So I've honestly been dreaming of Irvin being able to perform at the 4 so we could move GRIII to 3. Is it unlikely he'd be able to use his length there, or do we not want to move GRIII from a position he had for a year? I honestly would love to see him in his more natural 3 spot.

If Michigan State is in the Finals on Sunday, you can bet I will not be wearing green.

Needless to say, if Michigan is playing, it's all maize and blue for me.

But when Michigan State isn't playing in a high-profile game, green may sneak into my wardrobe.

We had a ton of chances. Indiana didn't play their best game. Turns out they didn't have to.

03/08/2013 - 1:37pm Started in high school...

A high school buddy of mine tipped me off about it shortly after The Horror. I finally committed and made a user account when before the 2009-10 basketball season.

Michigan and my roommate's team UNC were ranked in the top 25 preseason. We made a bet about who would go further in the NCAA Tournament and I wanted the MGoCommunity's opinion of whether I made a good bet. As many may remember, we didn't make it to the tournament that year, and I apologize for jinxing the team. Luckily me for, UNC didn't either, causing that bet to result in an unlikely draw.

02/25/2013 - 1:24am I agree with most of the above..

TWIT works for you - but honestly, I'd read most anything you write. As others above have stated, you are funny and have a great tone when you write. It'll keep me interested.

Also, doing a Twitter column means you'll never be light on content. Some opined that the FP was struggling due to a sub-stellar football season, a dreadful hockey season, and a basketball season that seems to not be as AMAZING as we had hoped. No matter how "dull" the state of Michigan sports is, people will always be twittering.
