04/28/2018 - 4:32pm I’m alive and well!

Had some big work/life changes that make it tough to devote the kind of time needed to do the modding, but I still try to keep up with the site. Get some helpful emails that keep me up to date like with your post here.

I’m back in the midwest after three years in Florida, joke’s on me that the move was to Ohio, though.

11/16/2017 - 1:50pm I don't have the specific

I don't have the specific NCAA rule handy but basically once they're considered a scholarship athlete there has to be some objective basis for the academic scholarship or it counts against the athletics budget.

So a school could offer everyone with a 3.5 high school GPA five grand but they can't "randomly" award 20/20 scholarships to the hockey players.

06/16/2017 - 8:33pm Pretty sure Michigan only pays a fraction of that.

Per this 2015 MLive article his base salary is $400k. Don't know what else (other than bonuses) Michigan is shelling out but that's a pretty good start on a, um, full endowment.

04/17/2017 - 2:55pm Does anyone have any

Does anyone have any experience with Microsoft Teams? I work at a massive company that uses Skype for virtually everything but recently got access to Teams. I would be open to trying something new for a project I'm leading but don't know what I might be missing by sticking with Skype.

Doc sharing or voice/video aren't anything we use much, mostly just text based collaboration and discussion.

02/06/2017 - 11:02pm Forgot he was snake oiled

Forgot he was snake oiled until you posted this, but won't ever forget him drawing first blood 14 seconds into that 2010 Illinois shootout.

Illinois sold out to stop Denard from running and Roundtree easily took it to the house.

01/18/2017 - 7:00pm Gotta give 'em a break.

Not everyone can avoid saying/doing terrible and insensitive things as well as Franklin Delano Blueth.

01/18/2017 - 6:53pm Can we vote before doing

Can we vote before doing something so drastic? I'll find PGB and bring him out of retirement for that one if I have to.

01/18/2017 - 6:48pm No.

No.

01/18/2017 - 6:47pm You could always work backwards from here.

Although if a mod is sitting there putting that many nines they're probably not coming back any time soon.

I know I've been mostly silent lately but this sounds like fun.

I don't want to unequivocally say I'll do at least one but I'll almost definitely do at least one.

01/07/2017 - 12:23pm Sentenced to hard labor in Siberia, you know that...

I've been around, just haven't been posting. Got a week off to spend up here so that'll probably change for now.

I'll be there! Been a long time, glad to be back in Ann Arbor (briefly)!

NittanyFan, I'll admit to my own bias here but will interject to say that I have found most of your posts well thought out (and IMO introspective) and that Reader71 is one of the most respected voices here for very good reasons.

Kill someone if you must but you have a serious person (Reader71) questioning a passionate and well informed visitor.

Please engage.

08/30/2016 - 3:48pm Currently sitting at work.

Between the tropical depression on the way and some of the stuff going on here I would gladly do either one of these comments in the Great White North if someone wants to pay my bills. I'll produce a reality show and a series of diaries so we can sell advertising rights.

Accurate statement is accurate.

08/26/2016 - 2:15pm I emailed Brian that

I emailed Brian that afternoon about the ban being pretty funny but can we also make sure he's not actually banned and Brian obviously agreed. I brought him back and emailed Everyone Murders on the account we have but didn't get a response there. I also left a comment but he didn't lurk on the post that got banned :/.

08/24/2016 - 3:16pm Sometimes, yes.

Sometimes, yes.

Marsupial Monday is my favorite hour of the day.

08/22/2016 - 11:33pm Just as an FYI, any

Just as an FYI, any worthwhile original content justifies a separate OP even if the subjects are identical. If we have six or seven wallpaper threads in a row we'll make an adjustment from our end, but original content shouldn't be relegated to comments in the vast majority of cases.

08/22/2016 - 10:59pm Do you have a smartphone,

Do you have a smartphone, tablet, or access to one? Best way to ID music is downloading Shazam.

If you posted the video and I didn't know what the song was that's where I would go.

08/21/2016 - 9:11pm It's not a black and white

It's not a black and white system and everyone approaches things differently, but speaking for myself actual, long term users aren't just suddenly banned. The two exceptions off the top of my head would be crossing the line into using slurs or personally going after a student athlete.

For things like politics or not playing nice with other posters, anyone with a legit history is going to get at least one warnng when it's me making the call.*

*Speaking broadly, I'm sure there's an exception in there somewhere.

08/18/2016 - 3:06pm This happened yesterday, but

This happened yesterday, but I had the incredible privilege to watch my high school cross country teammate and friend win silver in the 3000m Steeplechase. Really an incredible feat. First mens US steeple medal since 1984 and broke an Olympic record that had stood since 1988 (granted Kipruto beat it by a better margin).

08/10/2016 - 11:40pm skurnie; new mod!?!?

If so, welcome and please shoot me an email whenever you get a second. LSA and I have untold riches that need nothing more than an email to unlock after all.

I don't know how uniform it is, but ideally I delete all of the spammers posts, ban and block the account and delete the avatar. The last bit is probably overkill, but it's an easy box to click on that particular screen and it's usually something especially stupid.

Also Seth is 100% right that spam blocks don't need justifying (not that he needs me to back him up).

Nobody will know what the hell is going on.

Harbaugh would.

He recommended driving at 800 mph, so I think the hour calculation is pretty solid.

Or something similar? Please advice.

In case your email is five years out of date and you didn't get the message I sent, you're back after a half day in exile (not Bolivian exile, though).

07/05/2016 - 11:36pm I'll give you half price on the exchange rate.

No BS, send $5k my way and I'll send you MGo10k. I can provide receipts as well.

Has Hollis gotten any love since Brandon was run out of town? It's a lot easier to look good when your counterpart is pulling the stunts Brandon pulled.

Amnesty is obviously anti-death penalty, but the first section is just linkdumping government audits/reports if you want some numbers. I'm not aware of numbers that go in the other direction, but I'm not claiming to be an actual expert.

06/17/2016 - 2:07pm Rowdy fans at Euro's (Mom's Please merge/delete, thx)

All the love in the world to the moms out there, but if you had told me eight weeks ago that MGo had an immediate need for multiple moms on the mod team there's no way I would have believed it.

06/13/2016 - 11:41pm I wasn't the one who banned

I wasn't the one who banned this spammer but I have to leave props to everyone letting us know in the mod sticky. LSA is tireless but without the heads up you all leave us there would be a lot more spam on the site.

Please take a well deserved +1.

I tried (unsuccessfully) to work some magic to get comments to show on "Ghana - USA Open Thread". I think you're right that there must have been something once upon a time and has now disappeared.

Anything ad related shoot him an email. First name at mgoblog dot com.

I (sadly) never knew him and (sadly) wasn't around for the fights, but Ali has been a major influence in my thinking and my life. GOAT doesn't quite cut it with Ali; his influence outside the ring was on par with any of his contemporaries and he deserves to be remembered with that in mind.

I don't use the term lightly, but this man was a hero. Full stop.

06/03/2016 - 9:50pm I have not.

The name rings a bell but I'm not in a position to go looking for a few minutes. Guessing it's good?

06/03/2016 - 9:32pm Off the top of my head, recency bias highly likely:

Drama: Good Will Hunting or The Departed
Comedy: Trading Places or Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Documentary: Citizenfour or Amy

Edit: Not sure what this makes it, but for some reason Hitch always makes me feel better no matter how shitty of a day it is.

05/31/2016 - 8:43pm Not my fault!

 

 

  1. LSA republished it, it's all his fault.
  2. Can you, as just one mom, delete this? The wording seems to support LSA's contention that we need a committee of moms to take action on the OP.
05/31/2016 - 8:33pm Haha!

I was hoping whoever unpublished it would notice. Well played!
