Laughed out loud, upvoted, then realized, based on your avatar, that this may not have been intended as some top of the line sarcasm/snark...

Hey, Seth, thanks for the sticky. I'm on MacOS w/ Safari, and entering text in the search box at upper right results in text that is not vertically centered in the text box, but is below the text box, and therefore invisible. In the screen cap below, "asdf" is entered in the search box.  This behavior is present whether the header is short or expanded, and is independent of the width of the Safari window.

More generally, I have always preferred to read MGoBlog on the computer.  3.0 looks quite good on my phone, but the whitespace, fonts/font sizes, image sizes relative to fonts, header font sizes relative to body text, and un-bordered white background need tweaking on the computer.

Thanks for your work on the site--always great content!!

Same. Will try the clear cache and history approach next time... Is it wrong that I'm assuming the problem will recur?

I'll also note that for those of us viewing on a computer, we are definitely not the target audience. It's clear that responsive (read: designed for phones) UI was the focus.  In my experience, the more UI/UX is tuned for phones, the worse it looks/works on computers....

Best to get at least two perspectives before deciding.

Obviously I missed a kick ass thread, as this is at least the second Alabama/Engineering reference in the last two threads.  Point me to the original thread, if it hasn't already been Bolivia'ed.....

Yeah, well, one of those "experts" picking Nova is Myron Medcalf... you know, the guy called out on the board yesterday for having Ray King and Jimmy Jackson as 40% of Fab Five.

Performance on the field, performance in recruiting... How 'bout you let me know when it's ok by you to voice concerns over the OL coaching.

01/27/2018 - 1:27pm Oh, goody, we've reached the "blame the players"

Oh, goody, we've reached the "blame the players" phase! Not the "the players aren't talented enough" phase, but the "if the fucking players just did what the coaches told them, it'd all be good" phase! This is surely the thinking that will take us to a dominant decade of multiple national championships!

01/23/2018 - 1:33pm This is fake news! It has to

This is fake news! It has to be! I mean, it's IMPOSSIBLE for anyone to choose to remain coaching at the college level if they have an opportunity to coach in the pros!!!!! 

01/18/2018 - 5:29pm BP is primarily coached by Pep? I thought Harbaugh

BP is primarily coached by Pep? I thought Harbaugh was the QB whisperer. Umm, this explains a lot? Maybe?

01/05/2018 - 1:13pm (1) Wow, first post.  Upvote

(1) Wow, first post.  Upvote for that.

(2) Have we decided that was the problem this year... or at least an important part of the problem this year?  That Harbaugh was more hands off with the offense?

01/04/2018 - 12:36pm I don't disagree with your

I don't disagree with your point, but I hope you'll agree that your original snark at the OP was unwarranted?

Not to open a great feature of the site up to abuse, but try the edit tab at the top of the "Depth Chart by Class" page for yourself.  Works for me, and I'm certainly no mod...

01/04/2018 - 11:26am It was my reading of the OPs

It was my reading of the OPs post that he was saying that it was him who did the updating, and wanted to check certain details with the community...

01/02/2018 - 10:10am Wow... that is a pretty

Wow... that is a pretty amazing comparison.  So, maybe we should hire something like a "Passing Game Coordinator"?  I don't know that we could pay him that much, though.  Maybe an NFL type guy--though he should probably come from somewhere with a tradition of winning and success in developing quarterbacks.  ...  ... Wait... WTF?

01/01/2018 - 6:02pm Damn, at this point I totally agree with you. ...

Damn, at this point I totally agree with you. ... and if it's not the players, it has to be the coaches. There's no way Harbaugh can go into next season without some changes on the offensive coaching side. Or at least I pray he doesn't...

Did you mean to leave the "submit another reponse" turned on?

01/01/2018 - 4:25pm At the rate Harbaugh's system

At the rate Harbaugh's system is going through QBs, when are we allowed to start questioning the scheme and the assistants?

01/01/2018 - 4:16pm I agree with this as well...

I agree with this as well... playcalling and game plan seemed very poor...

01/01/2018 - 4:12pm Well, if this "meaningless

Well, if this "meaningless exhibition" is any kind of preview for next year (and seeing the OL, WR, QB, TEs, and a good portion of the defense are next year's starters), then the larger point is, we're not winning 10 games next year.  Not even close.  Oh, and that doesn't even begin to address the pedestrian game plan, poor playcalling, atrocious game management....

01/01/2018 - 4:02pm I don't know that that's

I don't know that that's quite right...  Drevno should go back to OL full time, get rid of Pep, and either (Jim) Harbaugh should reclaim real OC responsbilities or bring in somebody with a track record of college success.... kind of like the DB hire, but for offense.

01/01/2018 - 3:59pm I gotta confess, to at least

I gotta confess, to at least a certain extent, that includes the proprietors of this site.  Yes, us fans are assholes on a regular basis, but it's time to be honest about how badly the offensive coaching staff is doing:  player development, play calling, game planning....

01/01/2018 - 3:54pm I agree... looked like Drevno

I agree... looked like Drevno doing playcalling... And what in God's name has Pep Hamilton (thanks, Browns) brought to the team?

01/01/2018 - 3:53pm I agree.  And certainly

I agree.  And certainly looked like Drevno was doing the playcalling.

01/01/2018 - 3:51pm I agree.  Play calling was

I agree.  Play calling was atrocious.  QB development looks terrible.  OL is a mess.  Looked terrible today.

01/01/2018 - 3:49pm He looks weak, light, and not

He looks weak, light, and not tough at all... there was a play on which he was tossed like a rag doll by one arm of a block Dlineman... 

01/01/2018 - 3:47pm I don't care what Brian or

I don't care what Brian or Seth or any of them say, and I'm sure they'll be bitching and moaning about how bad *the fan base* is, but that was a horrible performance, especially on offense, and lots of it looked like scheme, coaching, player development, play calling.

The data at the top of the screen says "QB: 8"... That's O'Korn.  Is DPJ on the 2nd team offense?  Is JOK with the 1's?  Or do the QBs and WRs not rotate together?

I did wonder if it was an oblique criticism of some of the commentary on the board.  If so, I'd have to admit it's not inappropriate....

12/03/2017 - 12:31pm Can we not call him "Brandon"? That name gives me

Can we not call him "Brandon"? That name gives me bad feels... Like I'm somehow drawn to huge macaronis, or I'm about to run some organization into the ground, or misspell something in some horribly permanent way... Let's just agree to call him Peters...

11/27/2017 - 6:00pm I hear you and don't disagree

I hear you and don't disagree with the "let's just leave it to Harbaugh".  First of all, no matter what we say or think, it is, in fact, up to Harbaugh.  That said, there are some questions I would like answered, and, in my opinion, deserve discussing if we are going to form opinions about the coaching staff and structure of the coaching responsibilities:  

(1) Why did we run IZ so much early in the season?  Presumably we abandoned it because it wasn't working... but what was the thinking that led to spending practice time on it in the spring/fall practices?  Someone must have thought it would work.  Who thought that, and why?  And, given the fact that it didn't work, why didn't it work?  Are the players unsuited/unable?  Coaching issue?  "Youth" issue?

(2) Why did JBB not win the RT job in Fall practice?  What was seen/not seen between Ulizio/JBB that had JBB start the season on the bench?  Who made that decision?  Ulizio didn't even see the field after being benched for JBB... a number of other OL made game appearances, but I don't remember from watching or UFR that Ulizio ever even appeared again.  What changed?  Was it just game performance?  If so, for what other positions is practice performance not matching up with game performance?

(3) Similar to (1), but with a different tone (as the defense was awesome all year), what was the deal with the 3-3-5?  It was a revelation against Florida, then basically disappered over the season.  That disappearance coincided with Bush's reduced sack rate.  Cause/Effect, or just correlation?  I thought the 3-3-5 was effective, at least early in the season when it was deployed.  Why did we move away from it?  Obviously the 4-2-5 we primarily went to worked great, but how much practice time was spent on the 3-3-5 in the spring/fall for it ultimately not to be a big part of what we did overall?

I'm not complaining, and I'm not pointing fingers.  I'm just noting three things that reflect coaching decisions and approaches.  I know it doesn't matter what I, or any of us, think of how Harbaugh hires/fires/manages his coaches, but I think we have the resources, talent, and tradition to be great on a sustained basis.  Getting there, taking that last step, is a huge challenge.  I'm interested in following our progress on that challenge, and bettering my knowledge of football along the way.

Hence, I respectfully submit the above honest questions.
