ALSO, this "transcriptish" should be treated as a paraphrase not a direct verbatim. I was just trying to breeze through most of it on one pass. If you want to get an exact quote, feel free to use the audio.

I don’t even know what that means.

No one knows what it means, but it’s provocative!

04/18/2018 - 11:57am Solid idea

Solid idea, but first off, why limit ourselves to four stars? I mean if we’re going to fill it with a star might as well make It a five star. And even then I feel like we’re limiting ourselves, I think we should fill the spot with Steph Curry. But not injured Steph, let’s go with healthy prime career Steph but with four years of eligibility. He’ll take a year to learn more coming off the bench then we can have three solid years of play from him. I mean that or just leave it open cause 11 really is better than 12 if you think about it.

03/27/2018 - 6:08pm A Suitable Response

Like the writer of this article, I too have not seen any games our opponent has played and have a very basic understanding of the game that is basketball. As a response, I have decided to pen a preview for this Saturday's game.

 

NCAA Preview vs Loyola - 3-31-18

Saturday, March 31, 2018 - 5:09 p.m.
The Alamodome, San Antonio, Tex

After reaching the Final Four for the first time in school history, the Ramblers of Loyola Chicago are descending upon the Alamodome in San Antonio. Like the stadium the two teams are playing in, the Ramblers are looking to ding and dent their way to a win, just like the famed car rental retailer Alamo Rental Car - "They'll Pick You Up!" The Ramblers generally start the game with 5 players and look to try to score the baskets early and often on offense. The team, led by a cagey nun named Jean (#98) come into this game after having beaten four other teams in the NCAA tournament. Their colors are the same as that of the infamous hip-hop-Harry Potter and their fans are known to attend a bar in Chicago to watch the team's games when they are in the NCAA tournament. The 'Ramblin' Ramblers most likely won a conference tournament to gain entry into this year's NCAA tournament, and if they can win six games, they're optimistic they can be awarded the National Championship.

Keys to the game:

Hold Loyola to less than 10 points! - While this has never been in the modern era by Michigan, it would go a long way toward winning this game.

Pass the ball on offense - Statistically Michigan has won all 32 games this year when they passed the ball on offense at least once per game.

10/18/2017 - 10:48am Great write up. Good

Great write up. Good memories. Along with the tired meme about comebacks, the Big Ten slow Florida fast was about ten times more prevalent than it is even now. Constantly brought up during games like Miami and the FSU debacle. Moeller was the architect of the transition from Bo ball to QBU era of Michigan football when every starting QB at Michigan from 91 to Henne made the NFL and all but two were regular starters.

I'm more disturbed about the interviewer. It's a 12 minute video where he bobs back and forth like a prize fighter who has to pee for every single second of the video. He also appears to be afraid of the cameraman, he makes glancing looks at the camera that appear to be sheer terror. Then while interviewing he neither speaks to camera or the interviewee. He just stares off to the right.

 

Ultimately the whole thing resembles a scenario where he received a call, was told that his family would be murdered unless he interviews Buckeye fans after the game. At which point, I'd say he's doing his best under the circumstances. Solid 6.5 performance. If the above stipulation is not true... I give him a -4.

Also, don't forget that he was a RR recruit who played for Hoke and was about to see his third full regime change since his commitment. Can't blame a guy for making a decision for himself in the one year/opportunity he had to choose instead of it being chosen for him.

07/31/2017 - 1:22pm That really was it for me.

That really was it for me. There was someone who mentioned taking a little extra time to pay attention to the characters and character names, because that would end up paying off later. That was exactly what I needed to do. That and get to about episode 6 in Season 1 to see where the show was going and why. Thanks MGoBoard for finally doing something worthwhile (convincing me to watch the most popular show on TV 6 years after its debut).  :)

07/30/2017 - 10:09pm Having tried a few times but

Having tried a few times but not being able to get past S1E4ish, back in May I posed the question as to whether or not it was worth trying again.

Six seasons in approximately 7 weeks later, I'm pleased to say that it was worth trying again. Thanks to all who encouraged giving it another chance.

07/16/2017 - 11:53am Honestly, I think that for

Honestly, I think that for many it really is about their personal vacation time. I think these coaches who are so hell bent on taking vacations, should take their vacations. If Larry Fedora wants to jump on a bus and tour with T-Swifty from January 2 until September 1, I think he should. Go get em big boy. The problem I have is with their institutional legislation of mandatory vacation time for everyone. If you want to be a lazy sack, go for it. But for these guys to try to make vacation time mandatory and for them to claim that this somehow is in the best interests of the school, the student athletes, the recruits, are flat out lying. I agree, they should just 'own it.'

But rather its....  I have a perceived geographic recruiting advantage, I want to secure that. Let's make a rule. I don't want to work as hard as Jim Harbaugh, I want to secure that. Let's make a rule. And the majority of the NCAA seems all to happy to comply.

05/30/2017 - 9:42pm In my opinion, there has

In my opinion, there has never been better TV on right now with The Americans, Fargo, Better Call Saul, Veep, and then Netflix just dropping new seasons of Bloodline and House of Cards.

Not intending to thread jack, but wanted to underscore a point about Fargo. When the show first debuted 3-4 years ago, I thought why? The Coens made a classic movie, what's the point? But then in a moment of tv boredom I popped it on. Noah Hawley does a fantastic job making it his own. Then season two is probably some of the best TV out there. If you haven't tried Fargo or thought that it's just a rehash of something you already liked, give it a try. I don't think you'll regret it.

05/24/2017 - 7:34pm There is absolutely no doubt

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Alabama would not have turned it around with RR. Previous to Saban, Mike Shula was 26-23 in four seasons. Previous to that was 2 years of Dennis Franchione, the Mike Price fiasco and NCAA sanctions. Saban brought immediate credibility and an NFL pedigree that drew interest from top-flight recruits.

RR would have "modernized" the offense in Tuscaloosa, but RR's history of recruiting at Michigan says that even with a top flight program and resources, RR goes for "his guys." My guess is that the results for Alabama would have been near identical as they were at Michigan. 

I'm not a dump on RR guy, there's plenty of people around here that are happy to fill that role. That said, Rich's sample size is pretty big at this point. Tigers don't change their stripes.

05/24/2017 - 4:51pm GOT fans, help me out

GOT fans, help me out here.

I'm a big fan of what's currently referred to as "prestige TV."  From Fargo, to Westworld, to Legion, to Mad Men, to Breaking Bad, to any number of shows on Amazon, Netflix and HBO. I've consumed most of what's considered good to great out there.

That said, I've tried THREE times now to get into Game of Thrones in three different years. I can't make it past episode 5-6 of Season 1. What am I missing? I'll be the first to admit that fantasy isn't my favorite sub-genre. ie I watched the LOTR series, but I don't particularly care for that type of setting.

Does it change? Get better? The sheer fanatacism of people who watch this show is something that usually means I'll get some form of enjoyment out of a series, but it's just slow and boring. And this is from someone who loves Mad Men one of the slowest, non-plot driven, character development shows ever put on TV.

Im not sure if this is common, or if this is just one of those shows that just isn't for me. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Heh, you sought OUT an interview with Curt Menefee? I get if youre a PMT fan and thought "oh hey, Curt Menefee, they might do a fun job with this one." But to say that there was a day where you were like, "I heard my boy Curt was on this one podcast, gotta figure out where it is and how I can get my daily fix of C-Men." That just seems odd to me. :)

05/24/2017 - 10:22am Think you might be confusing

Think you might be confusing that for the time he broke his hand taking a swing at Jim Kelly, that was when he was with the Colts. If he was 39 he would have been an assistant with Oakland by then, or his first season at USD.

Either way, a fist fight at 39 at a Bennigan's is some "core Harbaugh" there.

05/16/2017 - 9:18am You can see the list of

You can see the list of Editors on their masthead. https://www.theplayerstribune.com/the-team/

This is part and parcel for all publications though. Editors, while vital to the process, are never really identified. Even the greats like Bob Woodward had an editor (their role is still vital, just different tasks).

This is one of my favorite Players Tribune articles.

https://www.theplayerstribune.com/dion-waiters-miami-heat-nba-is-lucky/

If I were to guess, the junior editors would be there to transcribe (if it was a spoken transcript) and/or clean up basic grammatical issues, etc. The lead editors are there to cut anything superfluous and/or potentially put it in a quality framework. IE (and again I'm just speculating) Waiters "Casino" reference probably wasn't likely the first thing he started talking or writing about, but it was a good metaphor that worked as a solid "columnist" style lead.

Overall though, it's a quality article and representative of what I think the best case scenario is for the Players Tribune. It's a little raw, but not unreadable, and that's what makes it more personal and better than some twenty-something working out some personal issues in their life and projecting them on to Waiters while talking about their experience with him as opposed to keeping it about the subject matter exclusively.

Moritz on Team #1, DWJr on Team #4, Tim Hardaway Jr's dad coaching Team #3... I don't know who to root for, but clearly we can all agree... screw Team #2.

I don't pay attention to Arizona football. Still remember Rhett at his dad's side looking like this:

 

 

Now he's aged, of course, and looks like this:

 

 

05/07/2017 - 10:43am Don't particularly care about

Don't particularly care about Arizona football or Rich Rodriguez at this point. That said, pretty sure the conversation of RR's 'hot seat' status is not limited to the MGoBoard.

 

COACH ON THE HOT SEAT: Arizona's Rich Rodriguez (The Oklahoman, 11/18/16)

 

 

Friday Five: Coaches on the hot seat entering the 2017 college football season (CBS Sports 3/24/17)

 

These are just a few national pubs, didn't even link things like bleacher report or chat sports. Again, I don't really care about this topic, but pretty sure there is an active conversation about RR's hot seat status going on independent from this board.

Haven't listened to these guys since HS 25 years ago, do they still do the same stuff?
