… Hurts.

Only want him if we can get another player nicknamed "Shaggy".

It was also because the "big 4 bowls" (Rose, Cotton, Sugar, Orange) were all played on New Years Day and as teams got upset in the earlier games the later games would immediately take on greater importance.  There was an element of unpredictability under the old system that made all the big games special.  That has all been lost with first the BCS and then the playoffs.

Edit - yes, I left out the Fiesta because it didn't get big until the mid-80's when they started paying big bucks to get the two highest ranked teams available which was the harbinger of the BCS bowl game.  I'm also dating myself.

Damn it all! I’m recovering from surgery and the constipation joke hurt!

Worth it.

I have a block M shirt that is 10-1 this year.  My daughter brought home 2 Revenge Tour t-shirts this Thanksgiving.  Since I just heard Chase has been cleared to play I consider it an omen.  Matching Revenge Tour tees it is!  Time to finish the tour!

He’s back with Jack “King” Kirby in the bullpen.

Don't know what the minimum is to vote anymore, but I'm in!  Bang me please!

Reminds me of that old Chinese proverb, “Some men smoke but Fu Manchu.”

I took that picture.  Here's the back.  If you squint you can see "Nov 76".  I don't think I waited a year to get it developed, although there was a lot of alcohol being consumed back in those days. Here's another picture from the same roll.  Alpha Phi was the other sorority with the Thetas in 76 (because only posting the back of a 42 year old photo is lame!).



10/26/2018 - 3:09pm It was SAE mud but the Phi…

It was SAE mud but the Phi Delts actually took credit for creating the game.  In fact, I believe it was at the 75 game where the Phi Delts had the guy who came up with the idea in 1939.  They carried the old guy out to the middle of the bowl and dropped him in the muck!  Thanks KOK, for reminding me of the good old days!

The pledges got stuck with that job. I was one of the guys that ran the rototiller in 75. Only got to play special teams because weren’t actives yet.

10/26/2018 - 12:16pm The shark picture was…

The shark picture was actually from the ‘76 mud bowl.  One of the brothers from my pledge class (‘75) was on the golf team made some outrageous claim that during spring break he and the team had waded out into the Atlantic and started hitting a school of sharks with their clubs! He amended the story later but the damage was done. I’ll never forget the cries of “Shark in the bowl! Man the 5-irons!”

I can confirm that. You don't want to know what Murderwolf looks like on the Cronenberg-Earth.

100% Columbian awesome!  Mgoblog is BACK baby!


Missed this stuff Ace.  Welcome back!

There was no way…


There was no way Harbaugh was going to throw Hudson or Mayfield to the wolves in a hostile road environment against a top 10 defense. You’ll see them play this week at WMU and gradually get more time as the season progresses.  Remember we destroyed PSU 2 years ago and they went on to win the B1G East. Too early to panic!

I’ll counter those with Zydrunas Ilgauskas. He had a couple of foot injuries his first couple of years but surgery and orthotics helped him to a long productive career. Hope it is the same for Black!

Superstition! Pah! I prefer to think of it as OCD. And I am VERY OCD on football days!

I actually can't see the mythical thumbs up/thumbs down icons everyone has been talking about.  I haven't been able to upvote since we went to 3.0.  In theory I have enough points.

Edit: Verified!  Now if I could just upvote again....

07/14/2018 - 9:06am Goes without saying!

Goes without saying!

I'd upvote this if 3.0 would let me.  Richard Dean Anderson kinda mailed it in in season 8 but every other season he was great.  Loved his Jack O'Neill!

I’m reading this with a southern drawl.  Outstanding!

Same issues with Firefox and Edge.  It is working ok using Safari on my iPhone.  Weird.

I’m having the same issue as FM and JW. I’m well over 100 points but haven’t been able to up or downvote since the site migrated to 3.0.

I had to read this twice.  You mean to tell be the NCAA handed down 2 rules that actually benefit the student/athletes?  Next you’ll be telling me they’re really going to investigate MSU.

New for the pc, old for mobile devices.  Also, I still can’t figure out how to edit my account preferences. If they published quick tutorials once a week it would be helpful.

Thank God I’m not the only one seeing those ads!  I mean, I’m a pickle! I’d look ridiculous in those things.

Agree M-Dog!  I'd also like to know how many point you need to up/downvote or create new threads.  I think you also mentioned updating the FAQ.  Either of those things would be helpful.  Right now I can't vote but I can still create a post or a diary entry.  That seems backwards to me.

06/08/2018 - 1:32pm Can someone explain how the…

Can someone explain how the new site works/update the mgoboard faq?  The level of points you need to upvote/downvote seems to have changed and I have no idea how to access my profile.  Otherwise like the format of 3.0.

Still learning the new rules of 3.0.  I need a bang!

Commenting to click on my name too.  Also, I can start a thread but I can't vote?  What's next, dogs and cats living together?!?  I just don't know what to believe anymore! *sob*

I don't see where to upvote.  Maybe they don't show on IE or Safari?

All I know is I made it to the other side and I'm still a pickle!  I'm Pickle Rick!

05/26/2018 - 9:25am I can't stop watching this

Somebody HELP!

05/25/2018 - 3:36pm So...

Not a big Deal?


I'll show myself out.

05/25/2018 - 11:46am Hey!

What did I do?  On a related note I'm 7 karma points shy of a second star.  Rick Sanchez1997.  And my assignment is attack OSU!  Help a brother out!


Edit: Just got my second star!  Onward!

05/23/2018 - 1:09pm How do you upvote on reddit?

I don’t see where to upvote individuals on reddit. BTW I’m Rick Sanchez1997 over there.

05/22/2018 - 3:45pm Beating OSU


05/22/2018 - 12:25pm Thanks!

I'll work on the comments.  Although I don't have much to say!

05/22/2018 - 12:08pm How do I get more stars?

I've got 5 stars on links and have 3 stars for taking 10 turns in cfb risk but am still a one star overall.  What does it take to get to 2 stars?

05/21/2018 - 12:52pm I knew a Russian limo driver

named Pikup Andropov.

I miss Click and Clack.

05/16/2018 - 8:21pm I don't like the Maize-Outs afte October 1

Nobody makes a Maize colored heavy coat.  Lots of blue coats, sweatshirts, etc. though.  How about a "Blue Out"?

05/14/2018 - 12:24pm Same story here

Grew up in Cleveland and was an OSU fan until my high school years when I got turned off by Woody’s sideline antics. Hell, I even thought that OSU was the dominant team in the rivalry until I arrived in Ann Arbor and learned differently. The first sporting event I attended was the Iowa game in 1974. True blue hard liner ever since!

05/01/2018 - 2:54pm Village Bell

Dating myself here, but used to hang out a lot at the old V-Bell downstairs with the shag carpet on the ceiling. Also spent time at Dooleys (which I believe became Skeeps). Good times!

03/30/2018 - 7:55am And I thought I was crazy

for wearing the same Block M lucky shirt for every game. I'm a piker compared to TW!

03/28/2018 - 8:47pm Watching on FSOhio

I was hoping one of the MGO members knew what was up with this! The local Cavs announcers acknowledged the group but they didn't know (or ask) why they were there. Another reason why I love this blog!
