Thanks! How does the numbering work if say you don't have a 10? Or if you only play 3 defenders? Etc. Any good introductory resources to recommend?

The other numbers. A 9, a 10, a 6, etc. Positions apparently, but how's it work if it's optional to have them?

07/18/2018 - 2:16pm So, uh, what do the numbers…

So, uh, what do the numbers mean?

We've been sending people to Bolivia all along.

If you have this question, you could probably benefit by looking up a video on YouTube that shows you how to debone flats so you can eat them in one enormous, delicious bite.

07/03/2018 - 9:56am I live in Sweden.

Pros:

I live in Sweden.

Pros:

  • Basically free healthcare, including for anyone under the age of 18 whether or not they have the legal right to be in Sweden, and including most prescriptions, dental care, vision care, etc. for minors, too.
  • No poverty aside from people more or less pleasantly begging because they make more money by begging in Sweden than they would by working in Romania.
  • No need to own a car because you can bike or walk or take public transit everywhere.
  • Generally very safe.
  • State subsidies for having children plus almost free education for them.
  • Everybody speaks English.

Cons:

  • People are too tall.
  • Impossible to find Jell-O in grocery stores.
  • Winter is coming.

 

07/03/2018 - 9:51am Somewhere around 1/2 of the…

Somewhere around 1/2 of the country hates Trump and somewhere around half of the country either supports him or his platform.  This is nothing new for our country, unfortunately.  Before Trump was elected, somewhere around half the country loved Obama, and somewhere around half hated him or his message.  Before Obama was elected, somewhere around 1/2 of the country loved either George W. Bush or his message, and somewhere around 1/2 hated him.

I mean, if you're going to say stuff like this, you should be clear about it. What people object to about Donald Trump is stuff like his being a conman and his overseeing the kidnapping of thousands of children. What people objected to about Obama was, um, his rhetoric of hope and change and his attempts to give people healthcare? What people objected to about Bush was his program of kidnapping and torturing people at black sites. So, like, one of these things is not like the others.

Also, we will be pretty lucky if Trump doesn't cause an actual civil war. The extreme right has long tended towards extremely violent rhetoric towards the left. I am seeing a rise of violent rhetoric towards Trumpism on the left. It's no longer unthinkable for me that there could be another American Civil War. I definitely would not have said that under either Bush II or Obama. So there is something new here, I think.

The Baby Boomers actually did try to destroy many Americans institutions, though, and with a depressing amount of success.

Some timestamps where the dude appears on that Rivals Camp 1-on-1 tape would be mighty nice.

I am interested in all thoughts about baby boomers elaborating on the ways in which they are the single worst generation ever. It's true, and we have to live with it, so we might as well get to gripe about the morally bankrupt jerks while we wait for them to stop fucking up the country/world by finally becoming ineligible to vote by dying off. But, y'know, that's politics. Shouldn't talk about it here.

Mocking umbig11, being an all-around douche to everyone, giving false “insider knowledge”. Couldn’t be more obvious.

Mod said he's more or less legit in the moderator action sticky. The point hit will straighten him out and we can all stop the dick slapping.

Google "site:mgoblog.com mineral king bosse" and look at Google's cached version of the thread.

04/19/2018 - 5:50am check the moderator action sticky

They dinged you points for being a jerk, so you learn to be nice. 1,000 permanently and 100,000 for a little while. It's explained in the moderator action sticky.

04/11/2018 - 12:34pm Oh man

Just got off the phone with my dad, who flew in from Florida for the basketball banquets and the spring game. Not cool.

This comment is gold. Would've been peak WD if you'd ragequit the site for a week over it.

Worst Waldo is a receiver so open he's the only guy on your tv screen.

03/26/2018 - 4:09am Looked into this

It's stupid expensive to fly to San Antonio from Stockholm. Then again, it's also stupid expensive to fly anywhere else having waited this long to book tickets for spring break, and we do want to go on vacation somewhere...

03/24/2018 - 8:40pm Staying up for this one

Start time is 1:49 am for me. Here's hoping there's reason to stay up late next weekend too.

03/23/2018 - 2:37am Holy shit

Great news to wake up to in Europe. It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine.

03/22/2018 - 5:59pm Thaeth

Aha, got it. Thanks, Seth.

03/22/2018 - 3:46pm Sounds like financial advice.

Sounds like financial advice. To the courthouse!

That can't be right. What did I miss?

03/09/2018 - 2:00pm Despicable

Whoever came up with the idea has no business at a public institution.

03/08/2018 - 10:54am Why not?

For the record, I've coached 16 to 17 year old kids. I'm pretty sure most of them would've grinned at something like that.

03/08/2018 - 8:58am ha

That's not really an issue in Amsterdam...

03/08/2018 - 8:57am There are no Michigan bars, but there are sports bars

This is more up-to-date than me: https://theculturetrip.com/europe/the-netherlands/articles/the-best-spo…

FWIW I watched the Super Bowl one year at Coco's Outback. (The name might've been different then--not sure--but it's in the place I remember.) Anyway there were a lot of TVs there and I would be surprised if they didn't have the NCAA tourney. Almost got beat up by a roid-raging member of the Amsterdam Crusaders, though, so watch out for large idiots.

03/08/2018 - 4:31am Easy pitch

All she has to do is say, "I'm the best female basketball coach in the world. John Wooden's not recruiting you. Coach K's not recruiting you. John Beilein's not recruiting you. Do you want to be coached by the best coach that will take you, or do you want to go with some mediocre guy just because he's got a dick? Are other people's dicks really what's important to you? Or are you a basketball player?"

03/08/2018 - 4:27am Yes

That was easy.

03/07/2018 - 5:40am lol Sam Harris

The problem with Sam Harris is that he's a fucking idiot. Dude is by far the dumbest of the New Atheists, and that's saying something.

03/07/2018 - 5:33am fun fact

"Everyone thinks it" is only ever given as a justification of dubious race-related comments by people who are more comfortable with racial stereotyping than they ought to be.

This team is good.

Firstrowsports has nothing on you guys. And also no stream of the game. So, woo.

To be fair, you are old, so they can't really use your feedback about a website.

12/19/2017 - 4:14am ASU thinks student-athletes are commodities rather than people

This is really something:

Sun Devil Football's existing recruiting infrastructure will be upgraded through additional staff support and evaluation resources, by instilling a culture of accountability at all levels, and building long-term relationships in communities across the country to help ensure recruiting quality and consistency.

They think about getting teenagers to commit to play football for them as a matter of finding a way to "ensure recruiting quality and consistency." Just incredible.
