06/18/2018 - 3:04pm I agree that both schools'…

I agree that both schools' schedules are "full" with respect to high-major competition. With the move to 20 conference games, 11 non-conference games should now be the max for Big Ten schools. Michigan has nine accounted for:

  • Four high-majors (SCar/Prov, SCar, UNC, Nova) [yes, South Carolina twice]
  • Three mid-majors (WMU, Air Force, GWash)
  • Two buy games (Norfolk St, Holy Cross)

I would assume they will schedule two more low-majors to round out the schedule, once again leaving no room for a Cincinnati series that was originally supposed to be played at Fifth Third Arena in 2016 with a return trip to Crisler in 2017.

06/18/2018 - 12:58pm Nothing has been formally…

Nothing has been formally announced but with the move to 20 conference games and dates for several high-major opponents already announced (with none being UC) there is zero chance that game will be happening this season. It's odd, because I'm fairly certain the series has been pushed back a couple of times already and now it looks like it will never materialize.

Oh you poor tortured soul. You selfless martyr, you bringer of gravity to us unwashed masses. Thank you for your service and for always breaking down the walls of our safe spaces.

To Maizen, the true American Hero!!

This happens to me intermittently, usually after I post a comment.

This did not work for me. When putting my mouse over "MGoBoard \/," I can see that it's a valid link as the URL shows up in the bottom left corner of my Chrome window. However, holding Ctrl and clicking "MGoBoard \/" just makes the menu drop down; it doesn't take me to the MGoBoard link. I'm pretty tech savvy but maybe I'm just having a brain fart.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yep. My best friend got married in South Bend (his wife is from there) and their reception hall had to have two security guards at the entrance to stop people from wandering in or messing with cars in the parking lot.

I've know, for example, I've misspelled "simultainously" cause it has a red line under it.  But i'll be damned if the site will tell me how to fix it. 

That's just mean IMO.

I don't mean to take pleasure in your misery but damn if that did not make me laugh out loud. I'm sorry.

BTW, it's simultaneously. For some reason I am able to spell quite well but cannot recall where I placed something 15 seconds prior.

Yep. Threads on 3.0 have a fraction of the number of replies that the 2.0 site had. I'm sure it will pick up a little but people are being turned away by the clunky UX and I truly wonder if it will return to pre-3.0 levels if significant tweaks aren't made.

That has not been said. It was hinted at by the Nebraska AD but was walked back immediately and verified by the Iowa AD that the topic had not been broached in any official discussions.

Well now my point total is 17458 (or is it 17459?). If I could edit a post I could put the correct point total without having to guess what it will be!

06/13/2018 - 8:46am Point totals don't seem to…

Point totals don't seem to be updating correctly.

If you post multiple times in a thread, you will see the progression of points you've gained via upvoting throughout your postings.

For example, I posted three times in the Jeff George thread. As of 8:43am, my first post shows my point total as 17455. Scroll down a bit and my second post shows my point total as 17457. My third post shows a point total of 17458.

However, when you click on my username it shows my current point total is 17457 as does the "Welcome MH20" section when I scroll to the very top of the page.

George actually has two years of eligibility remaining since he redshirted in 2015 and is graduating in three years which makes this potential move all that more interesting and slightly confusing based on the QB depth chart.

06/13/2018 - 7:09am The Rivals link in the OP…

The Rivals link in the OP specifically quotes George stating that he is transferring to Michigan provided his graduate application is accepted.

06/13/2018 - 7:06am Read the Rivals link in the…

Read the Rivals link in the OP. It has a quote from George saying, "I'm going to Michigan as long as my grad school application gets accepted," George said. "I saw it as the best opportunity for me and Coach Harbaugh is giving me the chance to compete, which is all I’m asking for. Also, Michigan is an unbelievable program with great history and I’m looking forward to contributing to that in any way possible."

Oh, I was being facetious on the Edit thing! I just mentioned it as a joke as I imagine that Brian and company will be implementing it (and some other small changes) in a round of future tweaks, or at least that's what I hope.

Your script looks like a very promising start to making the UI of the message board much cleaner! Thank you again.

That should be "e.g." and not "i.e." -- Hey, if you could create an "Edit" button while you're at it that would be great! ;-)

Looks a lot better! Nicely done.

Two quick things I noticed:

  • It's cutting off mgopoint totals if the poster has five or more digits in their total (i.e. XM has 40,100 points but it shows as 0100).
  • Join date for the poster isn't incorporated. Not a huge deal but it's nice to know to identify possible trolls, etc.

Is editing a post no longer a thing?

The responses to that #1 jersey tweet are exactly why I don't use Twitter. Yikes.

06/01/2018 - 1:21pm Cincinnati series

That series is steeped in murkiness. It's already been pushed back and with other game dates being finalized, that it hasn't despite being on the radar for several years now tells me that it's probably not going to happen.

05/31/2018 - 4:36pm -

2012: Lost 13-6. (Outgained them in total yards but Denard threw about 75 interceptions.)

Denard only threw 74 picks. Vin Smith threw the 75th on a halfback pass. : (

At this point it feels like that Cincinnati game won't be played.

05/30/2018 - 12:48pm Bonus question

2013 Northwestern game ended up tied at the end of regulation on the strength of the last second FG by Gibbons (featuring the Dileo slide). M scored two touchdowns in OT (plus a FG) to win, 27-19.

05/22/2018 - 9:30am just FYI, this is not a preseason ranking

This isn't a preseason top 25. This is where Athlon thinks teams will finish at the end of the 2019 season.

An important note on Athlon's top 25 for 2018: This is not a preseason ranking of teams going into the season. Instead, this ranking takes into account where we project teams to finish after the national championship in January.

Come for the razor-sharp analysis, stay for the mulching tips.

05/17/2018 - 2:07pm Now this is thinking outside

Now this is thinking outside the box!

05/17/2018 - 2:06pm Ah yes I can imagine the pitch from Shake Smart now...

"Come to Texas where you'll receive zero offensive instruction and lose in the first round or miss the NCAA Tournament altogether, all the while having to hear fans complain about Rick Barnes taking over a moribund Tennessee program and turning it into a top SEC team!"

...or something like that

05/17/2018 - 2:02pm Good point

I didn't consider someone else entering the draft after '18-'19. Poole could certainly be a candidate for that if he makes a sophomore leap (which seems likely).

05/17/2018 - 1:25pm as it stands for 2019
  • One if Matthews stays for the '18-'19 AND '19-'20 seasons
  • Two if Matthews stays in the 2018 NBA draft OR leaves after the '18-'19 season
  • Three if Matthews stays in the 2018 NBA draft or leaves after the '18-'19 season AND someone were to transfer before/during/after the '18-'19 season

EDIT: had my dates mixed up, should be fixed now

05/17/2018 - 1:06pm Yep

Tyus Battle's Hello post says, well, "Hello."

05/17/2018 - 10:50am Basically, yeah

I was so happy for him to finally get a World Series ring but was sad that it wasn't in a Tiger uni. An all-timer in the Old English D for sure.

05/17/2018 - 8:44am Yeah

I think it's pretty well known that Brian is quite no-holds-barred on Twitter but I've read stuff from Ace that has really changed my opinion of him, specifically him taunting and inflamming Penn State fans when they won the NIT this past season. I get that we don't like Penn State because of their idolatry of Paterno but it was not a good look, especially when paired with the pinned tweet of him asking people for money toward his GoFundMe.

05/17/2018 - 8:42am Think he is just being tongue-in-cheek

It's obvious that the OP meant 200 wins for his career but I can't blame Mr. Owl not being able to pass up a good joke opportunity.

05/16/2018 - 12:06pm They won't raise a banner at

They won't raise a banner at a sparsely attended exhibition game. This season they raised the 2017 BTT banner before the regular season opener against North Florida. 

05/14/2018 - 1:22pm Looks like Dymonte Thomas to

Looks like Dymonte Thomas to me.

EDIT: I was bored so I checked the 2016 IU UFR and confirmed that it is Dymonte on the tackle.

05/14/2018 - 1:09pm Yeah, it's definitely 2016 IU

Right off the bat I see Taco, D Hill, JD, and Gedeon on the field. It's crazy to think that game started off as a normal November day before snowmageddon hit in the second half.

05/14/2018 - 9:22am There's risk but it's a pretty low risk, IMO

If Charles comes back it would probably take a very poor season from him and the team to create a scenario where he doesn't leave for the NBA, and even then I think with his age he would almost assuredly leave even if he isn't getting a first round grade. You mention Caris and while that could be a cautionary tale, he was also young for his grade (he turned 18 in late August of 2012) while Charles will turn 22 in mid-November in what would be his fourth year of college.

All that was missing was an "I'll say it."

05/07/2018 - 1:40pm Tie between Wisconsin, PSU, and Nebraska

Wisconsin and PSU for revenge (I'd love for another 49-10 pasting of Franklin) and Nebraska to shut up Scotty boy and his mom.

He also disliked them because they were extremely grabby and incredulous when called for holding and PI.
