You definitely hate being right, your spelling is right about half the time.

Well, they still gave up 205 yards, including a 78 yarder and 48 yarder. Those yards still happened, even if they were in two plays. Can't take them out just because

This doesn't make any sense.

Its been discussed ad nauseam on this site. He's not coming, thats all there really is to it at this point.

You must've never seen the spelling error

09/16/2018 - 1:42pm 1. How is that not… 1. How is that not insinuating anything? 2. You really think the coaching staff would dump the guy they had as the best RB in his class and who from many accounts was pushing for snaps?

Haskins has been here all of two months and you are already writing him off, haha

09/09/2018 - 2:26pm In fairness, he never said…

In fairness, he never said they were walk-ons, just "less heralded." Wangler definitely is that.

I swear to god I'll pistol-whip the next person who says Shenanigans

08/28/2018 - 12:34pm First there were problems…

First there were problems with the background, and I did not speak out, because I was fine with the background.

Then the upvotes didnt work, and I did not speak out, because I didnt care about points.

Then the banner looked bad, and I did not speak out, because I like the goofy banner.

Then the user content suffered, ---and there was no one left to speak for me. 

08/20/2018 - 11:33pm When TX high schools are…

When TX high schools are spending 70 million dollars on HS football stadiums, I'm not sure that the Football Culture of MI is the one that's a joke. 

08/20/2018 - 3:02pm So....you wanted the best…

So....you wanted the best quarterback on the roster to not be helping the team this year, so that a higher ranked recruit would want to come to UM in the future, so that a team years from now could potentially better...?

That, uh. 

08/17/2018 - 5:18pm Take the +1 that just came…

Take the +1 that just came from my tears

08/17/2018 - 2:40pm Jeez, am I the only one who…

Jeez, am I the only one who read the Viper comment as obvious sarcasm? 

08/16/2018 - 2:51pm So it goes. 

So it goes.

You think due process and the legal system is a bad take?

Ooof.

Oh, I know the rush of finding out my stalk grew 1/8 inch taller....

08/08/2018 - 6:04pm No, but those who came in…

No, but those who came in 1969 won a Big Ten championship that year, and then again in 71 and 72

08/05/2018 - 6:21pm Ironic.

Ironic.

07/12/2018 - 5:07pm Man, thats so weak. Because…

Man, thats so weak. Because he's not a blogger, he can't have an opinion? The consumers of the info can have idea's as well. If the bloggers are going to make money of of ads and donations, then yes, the people that help that happen can have a voice.

By your own logic, no one should care about any opinion you have about the UM football team until you start running for first downs or running back Pick-Six's. 

07/12/2018 - 3:59pm Man...just because people…

Man...just because people either dont have the same opinion or thought process doesnt mean they are easily triggered or need to be poo-poo'd. A lot of people pretty carefully explained what their issue was regarding that and its apparent continuing after effects. 

07/12/2018 - 7:54am Hmm, whatever could've…

Hmm, whatever could've opened Pandora's Box....?

07/11/2018 - 7:38pm I mean...the kid is a 4-star…

I mean...the kid is a 4-star and top-250 player. He's going to land on his feet and he's going to have good chances. Its not going to be an instance of someone "taking a shot" with the kid.

I dont say that to say the situation doesnt suck for Sheffield, but your comments about it are...odd. 

07/08/2018 - 4:26pm ...or is a Sith. 

...or is a Sith. 

07/08/2018 - 4:25pm Well, that might help 2020…

Well, that might help 2020 kids, but not Harrison and Karlaftis, since they would've signed somewhere long before the draft

07/05/2018 - 10:37pm Wait, what?

He came up…

Wait, what?

He came up short? He averaged 6 yards per carry on the year with three TD and was big in the title game.

In garbage time against FCS teams? 

1. Bama played 1 FCS team
2. 10-70 vs VAndy, 7-43, TD vs Ole Miss, 5-33, TD vs Arkansas, 7-50 against Tennessee, and 6-64 against Georgia in the National Championship.

 

Don't be salty man. Its a bummer he didn't come to UM and we want to make it seem like he made a bad decision, but he was a freshman who was behind some really good talent and he still came in and did a good job 

07/05/2018 - 10:31pm Yeah,

Two would play and…

Yeah,

Two would play and the other would be sitting out bc he wasn't eligible to play.

07/02/2018 - 6:32pm Where in his post did he say…

Where in his post did he say at all if he agreed or disagreed with the politics themself? He didnt. So why are you assuming that?

Look, people are taken aback by this sudden change in content and the antagonistic attitude that has come with it. It can be as simple as that and not mean that its someone "with a differing opinion trying to silence something." Brian said he wasnt posting about Politics, now he is and is doing so both without explanation and in a way thats a touch off-putting. He can do what he wants, for sure, but there are perhaps better ways to do that.

 

PS- If we are going down the Politics route, "He can do what he wants and say what he wants even if it breaks the rules" is a dangerous slope.

This is copy-pasted from the "Official Ethics of MGoBlog" under the about section, from Brian:

I will maintain focus. Appropriate topic areas for mgoblog in descending order of relevance:

  • Michigan sports.
  • Sports media; print, broadcast, and blog.
  • Opponent news.
  • General NCAA news.
  • Other sports of interest (Pistons, USMNT soccer mostly)
  • Dancing bananas, Walken 2008, etc.

Things I wont post on:

  • Politics
  • Karate Kid
  • The White Shadow
  • Musical groups that were last relevant in 1986.
07/02/2018 - 1:44pm come on man. He's trying to…

come on man. He's trying to talk up his dude. "You cant teach speed" is just a cliche' way of saying "dude is a super athlete". Thats it, dont read into it. 

06/29/2018 - 4:32pm This is from the "Ethics"…

This is from the "Ethics" section of the About on the site. And yes I realize parts of it are said in jest:

06/29/2018 - 4:31pm Honest question....where…

Honest question....where does it say "No politics" only applies to the commentators. I looked in the FAQ, and it just says No Politics. 

Look, like I said in a different post, people can say you dont have to read it, and they are right. But to some, even those who don't have differing political opinions...its a bit strange and off-putting. 

06/29/2018 - 2:51pm Nice to hear from you, Mr Al…

Nice to hear from you, Mr Al-Sayed! 

06/29/2018 - 2:48pm Since politics are fair game…

Since politics are fair game now, the whole "you can't say or do this, but I can do what I want bc I'm in charge" thing is how a lot of problems start. 

06/29/2018 - 12:05pm There is perhaps some irony…

There is perhaps some irony in your post  about someone not liking being told what to write about concluding with that there are only two responses to this we can write.....

Everyone who has written that you can "just not read it" is correct. I've said that to posters on here myself in regards to Draftageddon.

Where I think a lot of people have a problem with this is the blatant disregard of a site rule that posters have always been asked to follow, and have lost points or been banned for. If the site rule is "No politics", then its hard to rectify a Political post on the front page in the eyes of many. 

06/29/2018 - 11:54am So why is there a "No…

So why is there a "No Politics" rule on the site then?

06/27/2018 - 11:24am Most accounts seem to…

Most accounts seem to indicate that the UM staff has cooled on Harrod, as he maybe hasnt had a good spring/summer. Sounds like Trevor Keegan is the main target now at OT

06/20/2018 - 8:01pm Well, it could be worse. He…

Well, it could be worse. He could be an 140 lb OL. 

06/16/2018 - 11:56am Classic. 

Classic. 

06/14/2018 - 9:43pm I think I love you. 

I think I love you.

Honingford is a RS Freshman....

06/11/2018 - 8:09pm I merely ask out of interest…

I merely ask out of interest and mean no disrespect to the Risk players here. I'm not a redditor, but love the original game.

But if the powers that be know  its a mass opportunity for negative comments and locked-down right away....couldn't that be a sign that its not really a great Front Page post?

06/02/2018 - 9:56pm And he offered evidence as to why Draymond has

And he offered evidence as to why Draymond has success at the four at his height.....

05/31/2018 - 12:17am That meme isn't Paul

That meme isn't Paul Giamatti, dude.

Its alien expert Giorgia A. Tsoukalos. 

05/23/2018 - 3:04pm Well, 1: I think his point

Well, 1: I think his point was that he was a big who shot the three in an era where that did not happen much. There weren't a lot of Dirks and guys like that playing the perimeter with Bill was around. He probably understands that part of the modern game.

2: Here are the league averages for 3p% from 87-94, when Bill really started to shoot from out there:
.301
.316
.323
.331
.320
.331
.336
.333

He was above league average in 6 of those years. Different time, different era, but Bill could hit 3's for a big back then.
