Recruited before 1990

07/19/2018 - 7:30pm I guarantee nobody from…

I guarantee nobody from MGoBlog rated Joe Bolden very highly. Ben Gedeon on the other hand was very good, but he still was nowhere near Irons, Gold, Foote, or Harris. I would take Gedeon over some of the early 2000s linebackers for sure. If we got a senior year for Lawrence Reid I think that would have been a good comparison for Gedeon. Scott McClintock and Zach Kauffman would be the guys I would compare to Bolden.

Bush is up there with the greats however. Foote and he are similar players.

Map only includes the guys who made the team, not HM.

07/19/2018 - 3:51pm I'd definitely want to…

I'd definitely want to extend that past 1990 though because Bo hit Ohio HARD. Though I should do that after the All-Bo team because there will be tons of overlap.

Post 1990 quickly:

QB: uh...? Scot Loeffler or Eric Boykin?
RB: Toussaint (or Ricky Powers or De'Veon Smith)
FB: Askew
WR: Roundtree, Manningham and Woodson playing both ways
TE: Butt & Koger
OL: This is not great bob. I don't want to include Boren so C is Bihl or Jack Miller (probably Bihl), the guards are Omameh plus Kalis or Petruziello or Mast. And OT is Ulizio and Eric Wendt with the hope James Hudson will save us. Let's roll with that: Hudson-Omameh-Bihl-Petruziello-Mast? Ungh. And honestly we probably should put Kalis over Petruziello but people who don't remember him won't know that.

DT: Grant Bowman and Willy Henry
DE: Wormley and Taco
SAM: Jake Ryan
MIKE: Gedeon (over Diggs, Reid, Bolden)
WILL: Burgess or McCray
VIPER: Kovacs don't @ me
SS: Ray
FS: Jarrod Wilson
CB: Woodson and can we borrow Tyree or Brandon Harrison perhaps because otherwise it's Courtney Avery
K: Jeff Del Verne
P: Zoltan the Inconceivable

My wife and I lived at 14 and Crooks while saving up for our house, and I still trek out there for Pho because there's nothing like it for miles out here.

I'm amazed you didn't like the service. The owner personally tries to meet every single table, and she once took my wife shopping at the Asian food market because she wanted to know the ingredients.

Key is "if he had returned." My standard for these is the sum contribution while a Michigan player, not how good he could have been.

There are repercussions for taking Buckeye George Steinbrenner's blood money.

I skied there four years for Groves and taught there a few weekends a year as a Winter Walden instructor in high school. If I was going for accuracy I would have said "barely concealed garbage heap."

Good idea. Pretty easy to make too.

If you can believe me I knew that and screwed up the joke I was setting up about how it's not in Ottawa County nor even in Ottawa Hills.

Very soon. Waiting on Notre Dame to confirm they're not going to sue us despite having no cause to sue us.

Only if you can prove that HTTV copies are a medical need...

Oh.

God.

07/17/2018 - 2:50pm I went through this list…

I went through this list today with HUEL and put most of them into our to-do list (or edited them because they were already there.)

  1. Unable to edit: Again, a security issue. That's not an easy fix.
  2. Cant up or down vote thread creators. Added as a "if it's easy" thing
  3. Cant post video or gifs without uploading to computer. Been on the list.
  4. Preferences not saved. On the list as "if it's easy" 
  5. Not returned to position in thread when making comment I had this higher and it was bumped down. I explained today what we wanted with this and it's back up to a "1"
  6. Front page "continue reading" puts user back at beginning of article and not where post ended. Been on the list.
  7. Points may or may not be working anymore. Please explain?
  8. Some users still cant vote for reasons unknown? Please explain?

Re: 7 & 8, I thought this was fixed. I've tried it on accounts at every level that should have voting and they work in real time. Please let me know if you see otherwise.

On the phone with HUEL right now going through this thread.

1. Forgot I made that graphic until I saw it as your avatar.

2. Jumped into this thread because I was making my all-Michigan teams and was surprised so many people remembered those guys. One of my best friends dated Joey all through high school.

Digital copies will go on sale next week in the MGoStore, but the Kindle Edition is already live on Kindle:

I don't see your account in my Kickstarter database I'm going to email you at your MGoBlog account: g*****@yahoo.com

07/14/2018 - 6:55pm I'll make the change.

The change was already noted so you're all set.

Kashama played for the Bears too. Also he was just 6'4", from the Congo via a Toronto suburb, and was only a few days older than me.

Ironic you used him as the comp because Kashama got stuck behind 6'8" Pat Massey and we all remember how that went.

And JoePa had begged and got 2 seconds put back on the clock a few plays before that.

07/12/2018 - 9:37am Huh? I gave credit for that…

Huh? I gave credit for that run to Fritz, at fullback, not Billy. Billy Taylor just ran the ball but Seyferth edged a cornerback and made the perfect block. That's Seyferth's play, and his drive too. It was he who made the critical 4th and 1 conversion.

I don't have time to help them lately and the mods can barely keep up. Help us by reporting political comments to the Moderator Action Sticky.

I mentioned that one in the post but i should just include it anyway because it's awesome.

07/11/2018 - 3:13pm Watch Omameh on that play.

Watch Omameh on that play. He picks up Manti Te'o in and space and deposits him in the lap of a safety. And stop nitpicking at my clever ruse to include more Denard or else you'll get less Denard.

No the printer was off last week so they're just making the plates today.

The Kindle Edition is a separate thing I didn't offer on the Kickstarter because there's no good way (that Amazon is cool with) to distribute it.

That function is off right now due to a security issue.

Yeah we'll have that in the store soon (just some work I have to do).

The Kindle Edition is live now however.

What works as a comment in a thread doesn't work for a board post. OP is reset to 0 points--when he gets back to 555 again he'll probably know this.

Please tell me there are no Steinbrenners in the Rangers ownership?

07/03/2018 - 3:01pm Was it their generation or…

Was it their generation or conservative fiscal policy that created runaway debt under the guise of low interest rates on homes and school? Was it the Baby Boomers who got together and said let's do this as baby boomers or was it the financial industry getting together to dominate politics for the good of the financial industry? I'm not arguing about the current state of things. I'm saying we can be a lot more precise on how to place blame, and more importantly, solve the problems.

07/03/2018 - 8:27am This stupid conversation…

This stupid conversation could have been painted on the side of a cave because every generation thinks the one before them created all the world's problems and all the kids these days are entitled and whiny with no concept of the hardships will never have to live through. Young adults rightfully resent the unfair burdens their parents left them and the elderly rightfully resent being resented for cultural issues and systems that they personally did little to contribute to and might have even fought against.

Thankfully while my dad was alive I didn't waste any of that time hating him for being born 30 years before me. I will do my best as long as I am still smelling the flowers and blowing out candles not to hate my children for being born 30 years after me. He lost a good 15 years of a relationship with his father over whether dodging the draft and listening to Simon and Garfunkel was righteous or unpatriotic. 

You can hate on every advantaged class who voted for Trump out of fear of losing what they have (and rather feel they have earned). Or you can look at why this is: cowardice is baked into our genes, and takes an enormous amount of education and willpower to overcome, especially for those who don't have a personal stake in it.

Remind me to do that when I'm not trying to ship an edition. I can pull those stats over the last 7 times we did it.

I was in the room wrote the questions and wrote the order of the questions and the topic that I am most interested in got one sentence at the end. Brian cares a lot about prop a and the housing crisis, and Ace for obvious reasons cares a lot about Healthcare, and Abdul was the Detroit City Health Commissioner and a former medical professor, and a doctor and the Flint Water Crisis is I'm sure we agree a major issue for the state. We had very limited time went over by 15 minutes and could have spoken for hours without getting to all the issues in Michigan.

Leaving the comments open for now. You can talk in this thread about policy, but if it veers into partisanism your comment will get deleted and if it gets too far the thread gets locked.

1. Shortcuts are a thing coming in the future. Was in a beta version of the site but had so many bugs we took it out and then feature lock happened. If we can revisit it you'll be able to quickly collapse a section (features, diaries, board) to get to what you want to.

2. It'll look better when we (go to 6.)

3. Active message boarders say this all the time. Most readers don't mind and we want to encourage readers to contribute more to the diaries, not shuffle that away. Longform content is the lifeblood of this site.

4. I agree. We're using what works right now.

5. I'll try to keep those updated.

6. Background is high on the list of things. It's going to be a light gray with a titch of blue off the UM color palette.
