Loving the attitude our guys play with.  Agree it's been building over the years.

Haven’t seen anything on the severity. Given the weird nature of these and the likelihood of refracture, I hope they shut him down for the season. If shea gets hurt during semifinal game, that we win, and Peters doesn’t cut it then MAYBE they’d consider him for the final.  

11/07/2018 - 9:06pm I’ve said before that I’d…

I’ve said before that I’d like to see 4 super conferences of 20 teams each, with two divisions of 10 teams per conference. You play round robin so 9 games in conference. The winner of each division plays the other. The 4 winners go to a playoff with 2 “losers” going as well, picked by committee with good nonconf wins worth something.

 

edit: our division would be essentially the original Big Ten. Can still play rivals in nonconf schedule with incentive to have tough opponents.

I was having dinner in Iceland with my phone propped up on a Coke bottle streaming the game.  It was glorious.

If I'm just a casual cyclist is it douchey to wear this?  I'm not being snarky.  It looks awesome but if I'm barely moving down the windy street here in Chicago wearing this I might feel embarrassed.

Always hard to decide: terrorist or counter-terrorist?

10/30/2018 - 3:42pm I can't imagine what it'd be…

I can't imagine what it'd be like to have severe headaches that pop up whenever they feel like.  That said, the timing of this is clearly to mitigate the other issues going on.  I have sympathy for his physical pain the emotional toll that can take, but not for the public situation he's created.

No clue how this guy has managed to keep his job.  What a joke.

Why is Mike Weber an honorary captain for our team?

10/18/2018 - 12:43pm This is kinda dumb right? …

This is kinda dumb right?  The injury risk is probably not worth the salary unless they can get insured like some college kids do.  But there's no visibility so some kids will also be hurting their longer term marketability.  Not sure what to think but the salary seems a bit too low and like someone said, the bagmen can hit this number pretty easily for elite prospects.

I must have missed the discord thing. How do I join that mgocrew? I have discord.

09/22/2018 - 7:15pm I’ve been asking my friends…

I’ve been asking my friends the same thing.

I think we may do the Celtic Crown tailgate posted below.  It's just a little unclear from the description if all the food and booze is included.  I would imagine so but who knows these days...

09/13/2018 - 10:50am pz, i saw this in my UMCGC…

pz, i saw this in my UMCGC email, the pickup is from Celtic Crown though right? 

09/13/2018 - 10:45am I don't want to hijack this…

I don't want to hijack this thread, but along with OP, are there any tailgates we should consider for 12 of us?  We would pay of course.  Celtic Crown bar has one, any others where we don't have to worry about "getting in" and having everything taken care of?

08/30/2018 - 1:02pm No clue but I just ordered…

No clue but I just ordered them also!

08/20/2018 - 2:17pm Well I would hope so.  The…

Well I would hope so.  The Generals have never won a game right?  How many finger-spinning through-the-legs half court shots did we make?

08/16/2018 - 9:54pm In my opinion, you go visit…

In my opinion, you go visit. People don’t want to impose on others so he won’t ask. But you gotta go and once you’re there he won’t care that you’re seeing “him like this.”

08/07/2018 - 3:46pm Spinner?

Spinner?

08/07/2018 - 9:41am Beilein has probably had a…

Beilein has probably had a lots of subs these last couple years.  Needs to lay off the mayo!

It was a scheduled surgery and was successful so he'll probably recover quickly.

Only thing I heard was the multiple 911 calls. That could be bc she’s crazy, or bc HE’S crazy and she had to do it. 

08/02/2018 - 11:49am He may have had dirt on…

He may have had dirt on Urban and his program(s) and therefore made himself untouchable, almost.

08/01/2018 - 3:47pm He made his name at Utah.

He made his name at Utah.

08/01/2018 - 11:13am I read the post and it seems…

I read the post and it seems one of the wives knew that Urban knew.  Shelley Meyer however doesn't seem to say anything that shows that Urban knew.

Regardless I'm sure he did know and covered it up.  This will be interesting.

He defended Paterno didn’t he?

06/24/2018 - 3:21pm Every time you respond to…

Every time you respond to Bluey you make him stronger. Just resist the urge to write anything.

06/19/2018 - 12:04pm I've loved the last 2…

I've loved the last 2 seasons.  Buddy was a bum.  But I liked to see kids being kids and seeing their stories.  Sad to see where a lot of these kids come from.

06/13/2018 - 7:54pm He had a liver transplant…

He had a liver transplant and still played football? If so that’s amazing. Sad that he’s died. 

06/13/2018 - 3:33pm I think he could have a nice…

I think he could have a nice career in Europe or the G-league, but the NBA will be a tough tough road.  Regardless he should make some dough.

06/13/2018 - 10:48am Of course I can. Just saying…

Of course I can. Just saying that I’m the past I would wake up and see a ton of posts and this would have been one. It was also a way for me to sorta keep in touch with random things going on back in Michigan. The redesign definitely changed things but I’ll be surprised if everyone starts posting like crazy again even during the season. Just too clunky. I hope I’m wrong.

06/13/2018 - 10:26am The fact that there is no…

The fact that there is no thread on the World Cup location for 2026 shows that this board is almost dead now. I used to visit the site for all kinds of sports and non sports news and things used to pop up so fast. Now it’s just clunky and harder to use IMO. I can’t believe I long for the old site plus an app. 

06/12/2018 - 3:50pm Did you see Larry and Curly…

Did you see Larry and Curly too?

06/11/2018 - 4:21pm I was thinking the same…

I was thinking the same thing when I read that part.  Humor and weirdness are often defense mechanisms for being "off" and we see it in elderly folks in the early stages of dementia.  Not saying this about our FB but in general.

06/11/2018 - 3:05pm Mobile viewing is pretty…

Mobile viewing is pretty terrible, each comment takes up way too much space with tons of wasted space.  Also it seems board posts with few comments may sink to the bottom of the MGoBoard and be missed.  I liked the chronological order of posts as opposed to posts with the most recent response.  Better yet, let that be chosen by each user.  Anyway I'm underwhelmed and without an app my usage has dropped significantly.

06/06/2018 - 4:25pm Unless his buyout has also…

Unless his buyout has also increased I don’t see how this means he sticks around til he retires. The extra year is really so he can continue to recruit otherwise if he gets down to 3, 2, or 1 year left nobody is coming. He could still bolt for the NBA anytime so really this doesn’t mean that much.

06/03/2018 - 5:49pm I hope he’s not upset with

I hope he’s not upset with Charles. I think Charles is probably right though and Harbaugh is trying to make it seem like he made a bigger deal about it than we have any proof of. Definitely didn’t see too much extra emphasis in the amazon series.

05/31/2018 - 11:05am Definitely a mic drop. He

Definitely a mic drop. He foresees some issues in the locker room I think. He also doesn’t think he can do a better job there and maybe the external pressures will be too much. He’ll manage somewhere else I’m sure and work that team into a contender.

05/31/2018 - 11:04am That would be amazing.

That would be amazing. Absolutely amazing.

05/31/2018 - 12:05am They don’t really have

They don’t really have anything on Paige. Stan won’t and can’t say anything. She’ll get questioned at some point then she can continue being a college student and go on living her life.

05/30/2018 - 9:19pm Oh please no.

Oh please no.

05/29/2018 - 9:59am I’ve been there for two

I’ve been there for two losses :(

05/25/2018 - 6:22pm Aquaphor is the best. We’ve

Aquaphor is the best. We’ve tried everything and it’s the only one that really heals rashes.

05/24/2018 - 3:12pm I was always fall for this

I was always fall for this when reading the first paragraph.

05/24/2018 - 1:19pm Two attractive Brazilian

Two attractive Brazilian women. Not bad man, not bad.

05/21/2018 - 7:38pm That makes sense then

That makes sense then potentially.

05/21/2018 - 7:38pm I'm in Chicago too, I get it.

I'm in Chicago too, I get it. But McCormick place for games? That still sucks.

05/21/2018 - 5:11pm Why would this kid choose

Why would this kid choose Depaul? Does he have an amazing relationship with a coach there? Otherwise makes no sense (other than straight Cash homie).

05/21/2018 - 9:52am Glad you're doing a bit

Glad you're doing a bit better Ace.  I felt anxious reading this post and I can't imagine the stuff you're going through.

Nerves around the gallbladder, and the right hemidiaphragm close-by, refer generally to the right shoulder.  Patient's with acute cholecystitis (acute gallbladder inflammation/infection) will often complain of right shoulder pain/discomfort.

05/15/2018 - 12:20pm I don't know but this show is

I don't know but this show is killin' it right now.  The suspense is awesome and I'm actually sorta invested in these characters, except for Paige who is annoying as hell.

05/15/2018 - 10:43am Interesting how if you play

Interesting how if you play by the rules, you work and live with integrity and high character, good things will come your way.  Dude has worked his butt off, done it right, and now he and our team are gonna reap major rewards.  He's already been phenomenal but I think the next 5 years are gonna be special.
