If it's a pretty active league I might be interested. Send me info: [email protected]

Probably within the next week or two, since I'm out the week of the 20-26.

I knew this was gonna happen. This is such a Belichick move. Love it. Go Pats!

12/01/2016 - 10:29am They use polls from previous

They use polls from previous years to determine how polls behave, so it's just not a great prediction system because this is a completely new way of determining who goes to the playoffs, and we have a very small sample size of final rankings. Therefore, the result is a model that is very skewed towards having more wins as the only factor. Therefore, PSU and Wisconsin have a better chance than we do in that model because they have the chance to get an 11th win.

The fact that it's in Columbus would make it an upset in my mind

Thanks for the insight. Would love to be able to still see comments, but definitely get it if you guys would rather not have them up.

See above: you can read them in the app. Therefore, the lock is technically on posting, not on reading.

09/21/2016 - 11:54am That's actually what I'm

That's actually what I'm asking. Is the lock to prevent people from reading or is it to prevent the topic from further degenerating into chaos. Since you can read it in the app, I'm inclined to think the reason is to prevent further posts, not to prevent people from reading the topic.

Thought about this, but the job keeps the internet running and without internet there is no mgoblog. It's a terrible cycle.

08/11/2016 - 2:31pm Maybe not Boston proper, but

Maybe not Boston proper, but many of the suburbs aren't as bad. I lived in Watertown this year and that wasn't too bad, and Medford last year was just fine. Basically as long as you've got a car and aren't commuting into Boston proper it should be much better than NYC.

07/19/2016 - 9:09am I actually find it harder to

I actually find it harder to work out in the summer, with this crazy heat. I get lightheaded very easily. Thought I was just dehydrated but I'm chugging water like it's my job and nothing changes. Can't wait for the fall and cooler weather (and football)

07/14/2016 - 9:21am I don't know what you're

I don't know what you're talking about. The GOP, particularly this year, is the least polarizing institution in this country.

Thanks so much for your insight and candor. It really made my day that much better.

Seriously, why did you feel the need to post? If you don't like it don't read it.

06/09/2016 - 11:43am Haha that's exactly how I

Haha that's exactly how I felt when I saw the article on ESPN. I was thinking they would put 22 SEC starters, but BIG TEN!

06/02/2016 - 9:52pm What's the deal with rain

What's the deal with rain delays? How late does it have to go before they postpone until tomorrow?

04/08/2016 - 4:38pm The university should just

The university should just absorb them and create a new membership model. It's ridiculous that anyone can become a member if they pay a membership. If it's an ALUMNI association, it should be only for ALUMNI. Also, membership to the overall organization should be free, with due being paid to your local club so they can organize events. There is no value to the alumni association as far as I can tell. The Clubs are the main drivers of their value.

03/24/2016 - 2:02pm As someone who has worked in

As someone who has worked in admissions at two elite universities, I can tell you there isn't really a difference in how we look at them. We look at what is available to the student in their school, and what they chose to do there. If she goes IB and the diploma option is available, then I'd recommend doing it. Also, especially at the Ivies and that type of institution, they really are looking for things beyond academics, so she should make sure she's getting herself deeply involved in the things she's involved, instead of just having a lot of things on her list.

PS4...bummer. I'd be down if it was Xbox One.

12/29/2015 - 11:06am I killed championship week

I killed championship week with Cousins, Brandon Marshall, Julio Jones, and Tim Hightower. Those four alone would've won it. Second highest week of the season. My biggest win came in the wildcard round, though. Won by less than a point.

12/21/2015 - 11:34am The big thing the conspiracy

The big thing the conspiracy theorists are getting on is that the timing of the pageant wasn't thrown off by the error. It still ended on time even though this whole debacle happened. Interesting theory, and I wish it were true, but I doubt it.

12/21/2015 - 11:32am Most of Latin America. And

Most of Latin America. And that's about it probably. Many people out there are speculating that it might have been on purpose to get more rating because the pageant has had such a decline in viewership and popularity in the last decade.

Having only seen the replay it looks like it was SUPER awkward for the first runner up, who just stood there until someone came and took the crown off her to put it on the winner. Hilarious to watch.

The thought of Bo Pellini in Ann Arbor is rather amusing

He was tweeting at Nauta and Bush yesterday. What does it all mean?!?!

It'll be great if we get him, but we'll be fine either way. HARBAUGH!

12/17/2015 - 9:30am Is it now THE Ross School?

Is it now THE Ross School? I'd hope not.

12/10/2015 - 1:48pm I'll take a fake Internet

I'll take a fake Internet punch to the nuts if it means he won't leave. He's way too short for the NFL.

Not sure if serious...

Lidström if we're really being picky.

07/19/2015 - 10:41pm Yeah, but it's way too easy

Yeah, but it's way too easy to pick Alabama putting up video game numbers against Northwest Alabama State or whatever almost fake-sounding school they're going to open up their season with. So you pick players that will go up against the Akrons and Miamis (NTM) of the world.

07/19/2015 - 10:39pm In rankings Brandon Doughty

In rankings Brandon Doughty is #1, but I don't know if I'd be willing to put my first pick on the line for him. Would rather go for a first-rate running back. I had Melvin Gordon last year. The week he broke the rushing record he basically won me the game singlehandedly. I proceeded to lose by a tiny bit the following week to the guy who started Samaje Perine when he broke the record again.

Saban's on the hot seat? Uhh...what?

08/01/2014 - 4:38pm I have a college fantasy

I have a college fantasy league set up through Fantrax. Need another 9 people for it. Let me know if you're in! CBS Sports scoring rules, all FBS teams.

06/21/2014 - 4:57pm Yeah, I have a basketball one

Yeah, I have a basketball one on right now. Need to get me some football on my desktop.

04/08/2014 - 7:42am There's only 4 FF banners,

There's only 4 FF banners, but there's also only 1 B1G Champion. Michigan can't go out there and win multiple conferences. Winning conference requires being consistently good for months and 15+ games, while getting to the Final Four requires a combination of skill, luck, and being hot at the right time for a month, for 6 games. 

Final Four > winning most conferences

winning the B1G > Final Four

03/30/2014 - 1:44pm They cut nets if they win

They cut nets if they win today? I think that's kinda dumb, actually...

03/30/2014 - 10:26am Also, any staff member can

Also, any staff member can take classes at the university. That doesn't mean they have the same status as any student, athlete or not.

03/30/2014 - 10:25am Coaches are not full-time

Even if your logic were sound, coaches are not full-time students. Gotta get up to 12 credits for that. Within your framework that is the difference.
