01/06/2019 - 11:09am I was at the game…

I was at the game. Sightlines on the 10 yard line (Section 7), mid-lower bowl, were horrible. Sat on the East side of the Stadium and the sun was in our eyes until about 5pm. After the first period we went over to the nearly empty North endzone above the tunnel and had a much better view.

A group of Michigan students made the trip and we were near them before we moved. The Notre Dame fans around us actually enjoyed the chants and the experience they provided. Seemed like 1/3rd of the people in attendance were Michigan fans. 

Way too much cliche stadium music, even after the puck was put into play. 23k people in the stadium that size (77k Capacity) was comical. Poor gameday experience.

4 out of the top 6 highest ratings are from Ohio. Impressive.

06/11/2018 - 7:49pm So what was the expectation…

So what was the expectation in the beta tester phase? If there was a serious investment with delays on the back end without coordination on UI, where is the disconnect? Project management. I wouldn't go live with a half assed project. Would you? Granted, I am not a web guy, just a systems integrator.

Don't need it. There were alpha and beta testers apparently. Everything was given a rigourus trial.

The Capitals are playing more like "selling out to win" the whole series. It shows. Vegas would be a great story, but they are not as hungry.

At the moment, this feels more like a <website article place> comments section instead of a proper forum. I used to moderate a vBulletin site, and I really liked the entire interface as a mod and user. Can we haz nice things?

One of my fondest memories of your intoduction is when a recently deceased good friend of mine's daughter made the 'bones and we were at her first game. Against Notre Dame. That voice and watching her high step out there is something I will never forget.

01/17/2018 - 9:58pm Reflections on this thread.

Person with penis does bad things with people that also have penis? "Worst!"

Person with penis does bad things with more people that do not have a penis? "Second, nearly as bad!"

Normal people, "Shut up!" "Do not rate the bad things based on what sexual organs you have as the victim!"

Perp "A" was a mildly known coach of someone famous! "Worst!"

Victims "B" were famous globally recognized female athelets! "Not as famous in my narrow view!"

Sorry I offended people with my opinions.

01/17/2018 - 9:29pm So your post is mere opinion,

So your post is mere opinion, such as mine? Glad yours carries more weight in your mind.

01/17/2018 - 9:04pm I can agree with sentiment

I can agree with sentiment that the response may have started off as being well meaning. The execution went off the rails when equivlancies are introduced. Comparisons on how bad X is as opposed to Y, when Y is the topic at hand, are never a strong argument to make. Given that both are equal on a baseline of "This is bad!"

As I have replied above, I respect your contributions. This was just a muddled attempt in my opinion. Which, at the end of the day, is all that I can contribute.

01/17/2018 - 8:52pm I am sorry.

I am sorry. I don't idol worship the number under the name. I do respect and appreciate the contributions over the years by this poster. The point of my expectation of a better post should indicate that. Deride me all you want. My post is just as valid as yours. Perhaps you should respect him enough to reply on his own behalf?

01/17/2018 - 8:40pm False equivalency.

Can you qauntify claim #1? Sounds like opinion.

Claim #2 is also only opinion. You did not demonstrate either so why did you claim such?

I do not see how you reached your equivalent impact. Enlighten me.

01/17/2018 - 8:03pm Full stop here.

 "Further, what Sandusky did was much more physically damaging than Nassar's abuse. If you really want to know, here is a link:"


Do not equate mildly differing forms of physical abuse with the psycologial aspect on all victims. Order of magnitude is less important? This equivciation is disgusting. I expected better out of you.

It would limit unreasoned emotional hot takes. I used to be a moderator on a few other sites. We had tools to limit spam, new account nonsense. This is a different type of site. Thankless job moderating.

12/12/2017 - 5:33pm My useless suggestion.

A feature that would lock out a user if over 10 negative points in a single post and a moderator would have to "release" or "ban" that account.

Not the type of thing we need to see here. Arm chair sexual assult adjuicating by third parites that are predomenently male. Sports blogs are not the place for this.

Be aware of South Bend Downtown construction.


The city is converting one way streets to two way streets, and installing 3 new roundabouts. This only would affect you if you were coming in from the south. The construction was supposed to have been done in September, and they are behind, as most projects of that scale.

I use a double block and tackle rope locking hoist to lift kegs all the time. I can let go at any time.

10/15/2016 - 2:45pm Total moment load from the

Total moment load from the column (fulcrum) in you sketch (Weight of objects, lifting device, and arm structure X distance) must be less than the opposing moment load of the support system (weight X distance from column). Suggest a 2:1 minimum safety factor, and then rent a lift. Warning, your moment load will change as you rotate your arm. If you counterweight mass is inline when you lift, it will be of almost no use once your arm rotates 90 degrees. Do the math.

If you want to call it that. I say 500 Thousandths.

09/28/2016 - 9:07pm Here is the reality for

Here is the reality for everyone. This site is created by Mr. Cook and ran by his staff for the front page content and the revenue potential it may bring. Everything else is expense content. Low hanging fruit in the message areas are a low priority. The lack of posting in a message OP with an embed detracts from how much additional income? What is his ROI?

Remove Mgoblog from the equation...What does this information do for you having it, say a week before the general public in dollar value and why?

Unfortunately my friend, the reports are as stated. He was found in a dumpster, and apparently with a firearm in his possession. I was not sure I should have added the thoughts of his life value and such, but I wanted to quantify it from an apparent victim's perspective. My father is a survivor. I know what it is like.

11/30/2014 - 8:20pm I really dislike stating

I really dislike stating this, but I could imagine if you feel yourself as a failure, your life has no value, maybe even feel you are fits. He was found in the dumpster with the firearm of an apparent self inflicted wound.

11/30/2014 - 8:01pm I hate to say it is

I hate to say it is fortunate, but my family has also had two failed scuicide attempts. Insert "crying for help excuse blah blah", they are non the scarier. My condolences for your loss as well my friend.

11/30/2014 - 6:33pm My son suffered a concussion

My son suffered a concussion in his Junior year of high school during practice, and hardly ever played a game. He was also a wrestler. Many kids will be active in both sports. It is not beyond the chance of probablilites he had suffered concussions from wrestling and playing football in high school and even in college. 

One of my son's classmates that same year recieved a concussion during a game that was so severe, he had to quit all sports (Football, Basketball, Baseball). Light strain, migranes, ect. Nasty stuff, and he was only 17.
