Can other people see the vote totals on posts? I can't, but I also can't vote, so those two features may be tied together. IIRC, I couldn't see upvotes/downvotes on MGo2.0 before gaining voting power once I hit the 100-MGoPoint threshold. 


There's something deeply gratifying about seeing a dumb post buried in downvotes. Now, I'm forced to sift through comments to find the negativity that fuels my cold heart. It's more time-consuming.

It's nighttime so I assume he's probably busy stargazing.

If I were a highly touted HS senior in SE Michigan with my choice of 5 (free) official visits, I'd pick schools like Miami, Hawaii, USC, etc, and set up the visits for winter. Enjoy some nice weather, give my parents a fun experience, and then I'd sign with Michigan. 


Or, I'd pick 5 SEC schools for my OVs so I could make some money before signing with Michigan. 


Either way, it makes sense to me if a local kid doesn't officially visit Michigan.

To be clear, it's merely a mild inconvenience. It's not like I'm checking MGoBlog less (and doing more work) because of it.

I was surprised at how much less enjoyable the blog is without the voting option. Seeing how many upvotes/downvotes certain comments received made me feel more in tune with the community. I also enjoyed upvoting witty or informative comments because that's a way to help encourage more such posts. When, for example, umbig11 sprinkles flecks of gold around here, the upvote provides a simple means of saying "thank you." After being used to the blog experience with voting, I feel less connected and in tune with the MGoCommunity without it.

Risk is a thinking game. That should rule out MSU.

It's hard to believe he just turned 32. He's been so good for so long, it feels like he should be old by now.

It's encouraging to see an OSU writer put in a CB for Michigan

I'd appreciate it if there was an explanation of how many points I'll need to upvote/downvote again. That makes the experience a lot more enjoyable. If this is explained somewhere, I've missed it.

Last year, I was pretty sure Speight would be decent, if unspectacular. After Purdue, I was pretty sure O'Korn was answer. After Maryland, I was pretty sure it was Peters. 


This year, I'm pretty sure I don't know how to evaluate QB play.

Bacon never sits well in my stomach, so I've come to associate it with stomachaches.

Now it makes sense why he was attracted to Michigan Agricultural College.

I find two factors encouraging:

(1) Don Brown

(2) Plenty of time left. Winning solves a lot of problems.

Going from Betsa to Beaubien is like going from Favre to Rodgers.

Brady always wins in New York.

Von Miller took a different approach. 

03/10/2018 - 6:23pm Agreed

Warinner's long track record at Michigan has been uninspiring. Might as well fire him at this point...

03/10/2018 - 5:51pm Always the bridesmaid

Never the bride, it seems. 

03/08/2018 - 10:28pm The Tom Brady of Songs

"Mr. Brightside" is the Tom Brady of songs; initally met with modest fanfare, but defiantly stood the test of time, and excited women and confused straight men ever since. 


Greatness doesn't have to be understood, just appreciated. 

11/18/2017 - 8:27pm False

I knew exactly how much of an idiot I am; I'm married. 

09/05/2017 - 9:30pm Definitely

Looks way better in person. Very impressive.

06/28/2017 - 11:29am Arrests

Arrests only require probable cause to believe that a felony has been committed and that it was committed by the person arrested; it does not require that a felony actually had been committed.

If the witnesses/accuser told the responding officers that Perry sexually assaulted a female and then he fled at their presence, probable cause would easily exist to arrest him on the original crime. Further, by eluding/resisting, Perry committed a separate arrestable offense. The officers themselves would have witnessed the second crime.

There's a weak argument in Michigan that you can resist an illegal arrest — nearly impossible to prevail now under the best set of facts — but the initial arrest here was valid.

06/28/2017 - 11:01am This

Sounds like a fair resolution, based on the limited facts we know.
