That is well stated, logical take, especially when considering that it comes from a child eating clown.

Old farts will be apoplectic? We’ve had 35-40 years of fuck it, I’m done fantasies accruing. 

09/14/2018 - 11:34am Yeah, I got that one today…

Yeah, I got that one today and a couple days ago an ad for OSU on-line courses.  Yuck.  What the hell happened to the Arab women who want to date me?

Nice snark.  I assume you're erudite enough to know that he's quoting a Michigan alum?

08/31/2018 - 11:59am Points have been starting…

Points have been starting and stopping like a 76 Chevette; hopefully that function will be back more sooner than later.  Seth also said that they should be dropping in some time-related stuff like you mention and, my fav, marking comments as NEW.  I was hoping that would be sorted out before the season so the site is a little less like a Skoda 110 when we get 500 comment threads, but...

08/30/2018 - 12:16pm I was with you through point…

I was with you through point 1, but you lost me at the cheap tickets being bad part.  The whole point is to give students a chance to enjoy the game even if they're otherwise broke.  My student seats back in (mumbles) were 6 bucks a game.  I got them as a freshman because it sounded fun and became absolutely rabid after attending a few games.  Keep those student tickets cheap!

TV is likely the bigger issue.  It's great that I can watch every game from here in Chicago, but it's logical that the students are more likely to stay home and party in front of the TV as a result of the full schedule being televised.  I believe there were three televised games a year max back in (mumbles) so we went to every game.  The alternative was Ufer, which was great, but not the same as being there.

08/30/2018 - 11:02am Depends on where you are on…

Depends on where you are on the space-time continuum, yes.

08/29/2018 - 10:42am Yes.

Yes.

08/27/2018 - 9:55am I am amazed at the sheer…

I am amazed at the sheer number of trolls that have popped up after the OSU story broke (and the university rolled over to show its belly to Meyer).  Psychologists would have a good time explaining the dynamics I think.

08/24/2018 - 11:47am What a remarkable…

What a remarkable coincidence.

08/23/2018 - 1:13pm WAS forced out.

WAS forced out.

08/23/2018 - 1:10pm Getting waaay OT here, yes,…

Getting waaay OT here, yes, the advancement in medicine in regard to the Black Death is not a statement on morality, but the fact that 2000 Jews were burned alive in Strasbourg in 1349 in response to the Plague does say a lot about the morality of the time.  It's a lot less shitty now, but that doesn't mean that it's not discouraging to see how malleable morality is to many people.

08/23/2018 - 12:09pm Ooooooooh, burn!  Thanks for…

Ooooooooh, burn!  Thanks for again showing that in the itty bitty Buckeye brain that NOTHING is more important than a team YOU WATCH winning a fucking game.

08/22/2018 - 1:22pm Sprouting ear hair, sir, is…

Sprouting ear hair, sir, is NOT a laughing matter.

08/20/2018 - 3:46pm I remember when Grant came…

I remember when Grant came in that he said getting a degree in history from Michigan was a big part of his decision to commit and stand by it during the ensuing turmoil.  I have a feeling he may just be Professor Newsome before we know it and represent well what it is to be a Michigan Man.

08/20/2018 - 1:35pm Sheeeeit.  Love the…

Sheeeeit.  Love the attempted jujitsu there by trying to say that it's McMurphy/Courtney Smith's fault that Zach is taking junk shots in the White House and having sex at the office with a subordinate while he's wearing his ball lifter (red).  Yeah, somehow it's their doing...

08/20/2018 - 11:09am "Something different"…

"Something different"... What ever could you mean?

08/16/2018 - 6:26pm Hack

Shakespeare. Hack.

Finely laconic. Well played. 

08/15/2018 - 10:55am I always wondered why Bill…

I always wondered why Bill Watterson never sued the shit out someone for appropriating his creation (Calvin), especially when he never in a million years would think this is remotely funny.

08/13/2018 - 6:58pm Nope. Bluey/Maizen. Same old…

Nope. Bluey/Maizen. Same old bullshit; now in a new package!

08/13/2018 - 6:52pm It is. He’s like a shitty…

It is. He’s like a shitty horror movie villain. Just keeps coming back no matter how many accounts get caved. 

08/12/2018 - 12:34pm Don’t you have some domestic…

Don’t you have some domestic abuse to be enabling or something? 

08/12/2018 - 10:27am I get up at 5 on weekdays…

I get up at 5 on weekdays and 7-ish weekends. Yes; my real name is not Brimley, but rather Jed Clampett. 

08/09/2018 - 11:39pm The “(with pics!)” makes me…

The “(with pics!)” makes me sad that BlueSeoul is no more. I pour one out for one of my favorite diarists. 

08/07/2018 - 10:55am Yeah, no shit.  I can't…

Yeah, no shit.  I can't believe how many assholes have migrated from Bucknuts to MGo since this story broke.  I don't understand the compulsion.  The cool OSU visitors like BuckeyeJohnRoss and RationalBuckeye have, understandably, not weighed in as far as I've seen.  Yet people who NEVER had an inclination to come over to just talk football suddenly MUST come in to troll.  Weird.  This is your coach and your program, guys.  Why come over here to talk about it?

08/06/2018 - 11:24am Semantic (pedantic?) point:…

Semantic (pedantic?) point: a mistake is an oopsie, like completely forgetting that you were tasked with picking up a couple things for dinner (ahem).  There's no malice in mistakes.  Urban didn't make an oopsie.  He made choices that he has to own.

08/06/2018 - 10:51am If Ed gets pissed and…

If Ed gets pissed and contacts writers about a Michigan coach who beats his wife, that’s ok with me. 

And, look, even Ramzy knew this story. McMurphy probably heard it from multiple people and then gathered enough sourcing to run it. 

08/05/2018 - 12:23am Good point. Joined a month…

Good point. Joined a month ago which is about the same time Bluey caught a flight to La Paz. 

08/04/2018 - 4:40pm Welp, that was all over the…

Welp, that was all over the place.  Very interesting; thanks for finding and posting it.

08/04/2018 - 4:28pm 19 recruiting is far from…

19 recruiting is far from over.  It's possible Harbaugh has a trick or two in mind for the incoming class.

08/04/2018 - 11:44am Solid point, Laser.  The…

Solid point, Laser.  The next few weeks/months will show if OSU is a football school or a fine school that happens to have a great football team.  When this first broke, I was hopeful that it is the latter, but this statement seems to be the first salvo in a PR campaign which, in the end, will have a "humbled" Urbs who "made mistakes" coaching the first game of the season.

08/02/2018 - 11:14am Take care, buddy.  Hope to…

Take care, buddy.  Hope to see you soon, hale and hearty.

07/27/2018 - 2:36pm Thanks!  I can die happy now.

Thanks!  I can die happy now.

I do NOT like alternate uniforms because get off my lawn, but I love the Minnesota kid's inclusion of the goofy ass gopher on his.  They should definitely wear those at least once.

07/26/2018 - 4:49pm Lighten up, Francis.

Lighten up, Francis.

I thought it was "Vladimir Putin" but you only had to say it once.

07/25/2018 - 9:15am Reading until the end of the…

Reading until the end of the piece, it may be that they used some beer sale money ("Boiler Gold") to pay for the obvious (they never noticed that central Indiana can be hot in September?).  Yay I guess?

07/24/2018 - 3:27pm Thanks for taking time to…

Thanks for taking time to explain it!  The good news is that the 2019 class is chock full o' interior linemen and the one LB they got in '18 looks to be a dude in the Don Brown sense.  There's some guys at DT who I hope will be fine for a bit, plus someone might grow into it.  I have a feeling Harbaugh still thinks he's going to pull a decent WR or two in '19.  The caveat here is that I'm obnoxiously upbeat when it comes to sports fandom.  Plus the dementia.

07/24/2018 - 1:29pm Brian, don't I remember you…

Brian, don't I remember you calling this class a disappointment, or is that the dementia talking?  If so, your profiles thus far have gotten me pretty jazzed for a not-so-great group.

07/24/2018 - 12:47pm I get that you qualified…

I get that you qualified things with (replacement) and serviceable tackle, but I'm not going to hold Wilson against him in any way.  The bagman argument can be overused, but in this case?  It's hard to believe that an out of the blue switch from Michigan (or Alabama) wasn't the result of, um, substantial benefits.

07/19/2018 - 9:39am “Sick” in the old man sense,…

“Sick” in the old man sense, yes, in the catagory of vomit and severed limbs. 

07/19/2018 - 9:36am What about fuck no?

What about fuck no?

07/14/2018 - 11:58am I agree, but if a dumbass…

I agree, but if a dumbass like me can see that it's an issue, it's hard for me to believe that Harbaugh and company aren't all over it.  I have a feeling that before we're done, we'll be good.  And this isn't "a trust the coaches" comment as much as "there's a reason Jim Harbaugh is Michigan's football coach and I'm drinking coffee from a Michigan mug while posting on a message board."

07/14/2018 - 11:54am "Someone" rhyme with gluey?

"Someone" rhyme with gluey?

Nnnnnnnope.  Points and edits were left in the truck when the site moved to 3.0.

And then tossed a safety off his back at the five like it was his 7 year old brother. 

07/12/2018 - 1:01am I couldn’t get past the…

I couldn’t get past the leading Germany to prosperity part of the comment. The prosperity came from institutional theft on an astonishing scale. The regime stole from its own and then its neighbors. We all agree the guy was evil but please don’t fall in the trap of saying he had any leadership skills beyond the ability to tap into a sense of entitlement and convince people they were somehow deserving of their neighbor’s property.

There’s no way to neg the op and for good measure up and down votes don’t affect points which, fuck. We just electronically shake our fists on the new site.

He was sent to a small island in the Pacific some time last week. A small part of me wonders what he thinks of this tsunami of talent but a huge part of me is glad the insufferable pedant is chasing down crabs with a home made spear.
