so much moves around in the last couple of weeks i'm not concerned.  I will take the long shot that there is no chance that we win out and get left out.  if we did it would be chaos led first and foremost by Harbaugh.  

sure their rankings are laughable and how they arbitrarily judge teams is suspect; their main job right now is to get 1-4 correct.  so far I believe they have.  the rest is just noise.

not sure i buy your tin foil hat; if somehow uga beats bama and three 1 loss conf champions are left out in favor of 2 sec teams one of which didn't win it's conference, this whole thing would be burnt to the group. 

also osu barely beat nebraska, i don't think they would kill lsu

i do think the sec is massively overrated though.

what happens in a weird world where Auburn beats Georgia but then Georgia beats Bama?

if you are serious about voting them out do not do a write in.  vote directly against them with the person on the ticket.  writing in doesn't do anything but take away votes from the person who could replace them

You seem like you would be fun to hang with at a party.  Yes the responses weren’t great but a quick google gave answers pretty easily.

I never knew I wanted this until now.  Do you think his living room has enough room for his charge calls?  Would he turn his back on players?  Or go nose to nose with his TV screen?  So many options.  

10/29/2018 - 1:03pm whoops your right; brain…

whoops your right; brain fart... fine OU lost to texas who has two losses... both of them not great.  All of that stuff matters.  I know head to head transitive doesnt work when your playing someone, but it certainly should when you are ranking teams.  

10/29/2018 - 12:40pm no way oklahoma gets in over…

no way oklahoma gets in over us... sure maybe they have beat more people but the committee will also look at some of the losses as well.  Ours is to a likely CFP bound ND and theirs is to middling MD who we throttled.

disagree - CBS is by far the worst.  CBS is the only one you can't use to stream when you have a cable subscription; you have to buy it separately.

the debate of fan vs. alumnus takes an interesting turn!  School property!

I would say they are going to fail their first blue book... but I don't think people at state use blue books, or take tests.... or pass classes in general

also, i'm telling you who you should and shouldn't hate.  I am telling you one of the reasons that I don't read the freep is because of my hate for mitch album.  you can hate whoever you want, free county and all

has nothing to do with kids seeing things on the internet; if me doing that is something that really bothers you, i'll take note and not do it next tim

10/12/2018 - 8:33am never said I am impacting…

never said I am impacting the world by not clicking.  I don't like the freep; i don't need a warning its a freep article though because I can see the link.

as far as mitch album he is a pretty terrible person who treats people around him and that he encounters like complete $hit.  he is an entitled a$$hole.  find anyone who has encountered him not at a book signing and they will agree.  His wife typically follows him around apologizing for all the mean horrible things he says.  In the scheme of things is this a big deal? No.  Do I want to give my business to that person?  No.  

his writing in a non sports context is pretty good but is an abysmal sports writer and the freep lets him write whatever her wants because of name brand

10/12/2018 - 6:40am For me it’s more about…

For me it’s more about continuous shoddy journalism and employment of known horrible people, e.g., Mitch Album.  The stretching article was just one example of a newspaper that has very little journalistic integrity.  

I don’t need the warnings, but I won’t click on the links

on mgoblog 3.0 you can't edit or delete threads is my guess

10/09/2018 - 10:45am I get the feeling this is…

I get the feeling this is the year that we have been in a shell for the first half only to unload a whole new team on the next three opponents.  I don't know why but I feel like harbaugh is pulling a mork ditoni this year

10/06/2018 - 9:50pm Didn’t seem like fewer to me…

Didn’t seem like fewer to me.  Didn’t we end first half with TD, tv break, XP, tv break, 14 seconds of clock, halftime?

does he play at WBHS?  If so that Ron Bellamy connection may be paying off!

edit - yes per the twitter pic looks like he does

i dunno ... given we went for months without it, feels more negbang to me? 

09/11/2018 - 3:45pm that's fair and I see your…

that's fair and I see your point; actively associating and speaking out against is a strong message. 

I dunno know what would bring about quicker change that or all of a sudden a school prides itself on it's quality education with no one claiming a degree from there, whose "largest living alumni" base no longer exists, 200+ games with greater than 100K disappears.  A lot of the things that michigan has are size, and if we lose 20-50% of the fan and alumni base it will take a HUGE hit to the brand.

So I dunno... probably no right answer and some combination of both; boycot products while speaking out against 

 

09/11/2018 - 2:12pm if this show were to ever…

if this show were to ever come remotely close to us I would abandon my fandom immediately.  Additionally I would fully remove the Michigan Degree from my resume, linkedin etc.  Whether it would actually amount to any difference or not I don't know and don't care, but i would not want to associate myself with a university like that.  

 

09/06/2018 - 10:34am for me and my kids it helps…

for me and my kids it helps with a barrier.  We do no phones, no devices at dinner including when we eat out.  We never let our kiddos watch on the phone so they don't associate the phone with something they can watch things on. 

The ipad on the other hand, that association does exist.  It seems silly but with my kids ipad vs. iphone are church and state.  

as an aside, you can definitely make it the game without a device, there is enough to walk around and see as well in the stadium area, plus food, etc. 

08/30/2018 - 4:40pm kind of yes. kind of no. …

kind of yes. kind of no.  when you talk about manball or basketball on grass thats pretty easy to know year after year.  Dangerman is also a pretty safe bet unless you turnover a lot of people and its a *or* *or* *or* position

I don't want to know what happens if I click this link......

yes; teaching people about affirmation consent vs. lack of dissent is an ongoing thing.... that is massively different than what I am talking about and lando just confirmed.

It is known at msu to avoid areas.  I can't think of a single area on or off campus that is known as unsafe to the student body.

I am going to go for bolder, not just their athletes, they have a problem with their general student population.  

I remember my friends from HS coming back from orientation telling us how they were told to be careful because 1 and 4 people will either be a victim of sexual assault or receive an STD at some point in their 4 years and the crazy thing is within my friend group that number was fairly accurate.  As a university they.  have. a.  problem.  Granted this was 15-20 years ago, so maybe its better?  I suspect not though 

08/29/2018 - 4:19pm and how this became part of…

and how this became part of any national movement is different.  the public labeling him of a domestic abuser is probably unfair until he is proven guilty; however that doesn't mean he shouldn't be in the metoo movement due the happenings with his secretary, who knows how willful that was or wasn't; but the view of people in a protected position of power clearly has a view attached to it, rightly so. 

08/29/2018 - 4:15pm i never said poor…

i never said poor performance, i said breaking employee code of conduct; big difference.  I don't want urban fired for what happened to courtney, i want him fired for putting people at risk within his organization because he turned a blind eye (or was ignorant) to someone who clearly has his issues and is probably a terrible person to be around if you are a subordinate or of the opposite gender

he should have been fired for the relationship with the secretary, he should have been fired for the selfies that took place during his capacity while on the job (either at the university or on team trips to the white house).  He probably should have been fired when the restraining order was filed and approved.  Or at least given a written warning that he should probably keep himself out of any whiff of trouble as it's against the high moral (ha) standards the university (doesn't) adhere to

he had a boss either ignore or cover those issues up and then lie about it. 

08/29/2018 - 3:20pm even if fully innocent in…

even if fully innocent in criminal court there is still civil as well, see OJ.... and none of this has anything to do with courts.  it is about employee code of conduct 

08/29/2018 - 3:19pm this, this, this and 1000…

this, this, this and 1000 times this.  why are we conflating legal issues with employee standards.  If I started drinking at 7am and went to work, it doesn't matter if I drove or took an uber, I am probably getting fired despite potentially not doing anything illegal.  

the issue isn't (or at least shouldn't be) did he break the law?  It's did he break the employee code of conduct and if so did osu cover it up, or ignore it for personal reasons?   Then on top of that did urban abuse his power as coach to have influence of others on the university to protect him and ultimately lie, all of which is against the employee code of conduct as well. 

08/28/2018 - 9:31am this a million times this. …

it's a bad sign when "the story" for the year could be potentially classified as "semi-OT"

I would be shocked if it was donations, I know michigan money cannon and all, but with the volume of the site and a few dedicated sponsors, plus anything on the podcast, etc; I would be a majority is direct revenue (ad or HTTV) and not the beveled guilt

08/16/2018 - 11:42am it's not a free service. …

it's not a free service.  you are selling your data to mgoblog in return for content.  Not all your data, or an amount that should be worrying, but there is a clear exchange of goods and services; not free.

Basic economics; there is no such thing as a free lunch

And frankly we all were willing to tolerate a lot for the board (which is now worse) and the content from Brian and staff, but that seems to be increasingly vanishing; or at least the things that brought us here (UFRs are less likely after a loss, no more TWIS, even the UVs seem to be of worse quality lately). 

I fully get they are down a staff member, but this is their job and this is Brian's business.  At your job if a coworker is out you just don't stop their part, you hire a temp, the team sucks it up and pitches in extra or something else.

im in a situation where having headphones on at work is harder thing to do as most people don't do it and most of those videos are blocked on our work computers.

I like the idea but hard pass especially given the nuking of that thread for no reason.  its clear how the mogstaff feels about the mgocommunity.
