Something tells me that Par The Course "sources" is the thread referenced by the OP. Doesn't seem like a credible site.

Thanks for the opportunity and the awesome gesture! Go Blue!

Our QB transfer is better than theirs.

Joined in 2014 and has 3 points. Has it taken you 4 years to build up confidence to start posting? Welcome to the board but damn, you make Dantonio's lying in the weeds look like childs play.

Exactly. Drake is right, he "never got an opportunity" because he was always sidelined with an injury. Had nothing to do with the coaching staff.

Blue in DC said QB play. I agree that total offense was way worse in 2008 but the QB play was pretty much the exact same. 2017 might have been worse, IMO, since we weren't changing the entire offensive playbook.

Steven Threet threw 9 TDs in 2008, all 3 QBs last year had 9, combined.

08/09/2018 - 11:23am Everyone keeps saying this…

Everyone keeps saying this but all of the early-on Urban Meyer topics were getting 250-300+ comments. Those stupid political posts were getting a ton too.

I think the interaction is less, only because of the time of season (no quality content to comment/discuss) but as proven with the Urban Meyer stuff, when something worthwhile is posted, the activity is still there.

Something tells me when September 1st rolls around the "new site has decreased visitors" crowd will die off.

I opened a new tab and started typing "shoovac" until I realized he meant shopvac.

Just as good of a comment the second time around. 2 upvotes.

Lulz. So many extra calls to the database now for people wanting to test out editing their posts. Happy Friday, Servers.

If you complain about it more, it makes the developers work faster, which means less bugs and better code. #science

But does Dylan McCaffrey have "it"?

She doesn't need his money. She is worth twice as much as Tom. She just truly loves his dad bod. There is hope for all of us.

You don't have enough points but I did my share to help you out.

We get it, old man. You don't like the new site and your activity has decreased. Next.

Did they have coolers in the bathrooms?

Because OSU only pulls in 4 and 5 stars, so they don't have to justify rankings and stars. Meanwhile, we're pulling in measly 3 stars cuz we suck.

What is the point of changing the characters in your curse words? Just stop and say the words.

Don't let @Bluey read this. His head will explode. Recruiting starz never fail.

06/12/2018 - 7:18am You don't need a mobile app,…

You don't need a mobile app, you need a website that works, one that spent time and energy on the mobile experience. It will get better.

06/11/2018 - 8:40pm I’m in West Michigan and…

I’m in West Michigan and more than willing to help, if Brian and company needed it. If Human Element can handle it, then more power to them. I’m not interested in taking other people’s work from them.

06/11/2018 - 4:52pm If you work for a company…

If you work for a company that develops websites, it should be very obvious to you that Human Element specializes in more of the "back-end" development, stuff like data migrations (which this blog had probably one of the largest data migrations to tackle), software upgrades, custom integrations, etc.

They probably don't specialize in Design/User Experience/Front-end development (even though their marketing website will tell you otherwise), stuff like the look and feel, user interactions, etc. I bet Brian paid a good chunk for the back-end development and the front-end was a secondary priority. Putting money into the data migration is the right place, because losing data would be critical to this site.

Now that a solid foundation is in place from the upgrade, getting the back-end stuff solid, they can (and should) switch their attention to the front-end/user experience/design stuff that they didn't spend enough time on.

Unfortunately, all of us users only see/understand the front-end and don't understand the herculean effort that went on in the back-end. Me, being a developer who focuses on the front-end, I see and agree with all of the frustrations but also see both ends of the spectrum and cut them some slack.

I'm sure some updates are coming, now just hope that they find the right person to make the user interface/layout fixes.

Damn. RIP, Anthony. I really enjoyed his work. Makes me so sad when I hear people end their own life.

Plenty of people survive loneliness without having to resort to this sort of thing. I'm not sure human prostitution needs to be explored. This guy is just one messed up dude.

I had to re-login after clicking that url and getting that message on mobile, then it worked fine.

Here is the url to post a new topic to the MGoBoard.

The mobile view of the site has a few bugs and this is one of them. I hope the MGoBlog team wants us to keep posting these. Maybe we should have a sticky thread for a while, instead of creating a new topic each time.

What is the point of 40 rounds? Has anyone made a career in baseball being drafted that late? This seems like something that is easily changed.

02/16/2018 - 2:46pm I hope Michigan's offense is

I hope Michigan's offense is gangbusters next season and Brian has to suck a giant debbie downer dick.

02/16/2018 - 7:47am I would love to know

I would love to know what data Brian is working from to compare the Jim McElwain hire to the Greg Robinson hire.

I have to hat tip /u/Don for commenting in another thread and posting Greg Robinson's track record and it was abysmal before getting hired at Michigan. Jim McElwain's track record is not bad outside of Florida.

Brian used to be rational and thought out in his analysis but it appears Michigan football has broken him and now he's just throwing out feelings. It's like he's one of us now.

02/15/2018 - 12:41pm Why doesn't Nik ever blink?

Why doesn't Nik ever blink? It's weird.

02/15/2018 - 12:04pm Brian compared the McElwain hire

Brian compared the McElwain hire to the... Greg Robinson hire. Brian has definitely lost it. Nothing is that bad.

02/12/2018 - 12:56pm There is at least one

There is at least one more plate snuck in on each side. Looks like 25# plates. I would guess this is 455+, maybe a 5 snuck in there too.

An impressive weight for reps.

02/12/2018 - 12:54pm Because of guys dancing and squatting?

Because of guys dancing and squatting? I can't believe that was the missing formula all these years. All Hail King Herbert!

02/07/2018 - 11:26am The only thing I have right now

Which is Johnnie Walker Black. It's fine. This is fine. Everything is fine.

02/07/2018 - 10:45am I put an offer on a house today

The way this is going, someone from Ohio is going to outbid me and I'm going to lose out on that too. If you need me, I'll be in the corner with some scotch listening to R.E.M - Everybody hurts.

02/06/2018 - 6:36pm Why would I pay $4.99

Why would I pay $4.99 to watch the ESPN Loading screen and get to see every third play of the games? ESPN has one of the worst streaming services I've ever experienced.

It was so bad this year that I decided I will have to get cable for the next football season because it was unwatchable at times. And no, it wasn't my connection. I was 60mb down, hardwired to the modem to my TV.

02/01/2018 - 8:01am Anyone else think

Anyone else think this was going to be an old video of Herbert talking about taking steroids? Thankfully that was not the case and it was just a nice one minute montage. Whew. Nice click bait title, OP! You got me!

Time to work, WITH SOME JUICE!

01/30/2018 - 12:23pm Haha!

Haha! I have been off of the boards for a few days and this was the first comment of yours I read since logging on. I'm sure things will return to our regularly scheduled FauxMo programming.

01/30/2018 - 11:55am Okay, what is going on

Okay, what is going on? When did FauxMo become rational and reasonable? I'm uncomfortable for completely different reasons than normal when FauxMo posts.

01/17/2018 - 1:17pm Not sure but

Not sure but I heard their next smoothie blend innovation is going to change everything we know about everything, change the way we do everything. The best smoothie yet.

Spoiler: Its the same smoothie you had last time they just added one more strawberry.

01/17/2018 - 12:54pm The photo with the glass door

The photo with the glass door and all of the smoothies makes it look like an Apple Store with nothing but smoothies.
