I'm guessing the problem is somewhere between the keyboard and the chair.

11/07/2018 - 9:20am Not sure why he's making…

Not sure why he's making that pronouncement either. Just because someone played tonight doesn't mean they won't develop an "injury" before reaching the played games threshold and then red shirt.

11/06/2018 - 5:12pm Is this the first preview…

Is this the first preview post for basketball? I seem to remember a series being started about the entire B1G, but I don't think it was ever finished. And I can't remember if there were posts about the guards and centers. I know for football all of the previous preview posts are linked at the top of the post, but I'm not seeing that on this one. Clicking on the tags doesn't provide any links, and of course the search function doesn't show results in any sort of understandable order.

So yay! Wings!

Most of us? Speak for yourself.

"We’ll get a more informative update on him later."

I'll believe it when we see the one from the last guy that committed.

Best part of this game was Ace doing the write up.

10/29/2018 - 3:52pm That's a really strange…

That's a really strange error message and very specific. It makes you think that HUEL was told to write it up, but it was accidentally implemented early. 

Unless they've worked out a deal with the rights holders, they can't put video content from a game behind a paywall. At least, that's my understanding. I've long thought that a subscription service is where they need to go moving forward to pay good writers to stick around and do this as a full-time job. The only problem I saw with that was how they would deal with video, since it's such a big part of the UFR.

10/28/2018 - 6:50pm I was just forced back to…

I was just forced back to Indiana, near Purdue, after two years in Wilmington, NC. I thought I knew what humidity was, but this summer nearly broke me. Florence doing enough damage to my sailboat to prevent me from moving aboard is giving me the excuse to get back to manageable temps. I'll take blizzards and ice storms over 72+ hours straight of the heat index staying over 100.

In fact, my plan now is to either move to Maine/Vermont or somewhere in the Rockies. I'll replace the sailboat with a tiny home. But I just can't handle the humidity any more.

Have you enjoyed the last 17 years of constant swamp ass?

10/28/2018 - 10:38am Because when it is WD, it is…

Because when it is WD, it is generally him being a pedant. 

Do you really think the majority of people on this blog have the hockey schedule memorized?

10/28/2018 - 8:30am Do you realize how comments…

Do you realize how comments like this come off when you type them up? Or do you just not care that you come across as an asshole?

10/25/2018 - 12:30pm "I do, however, want to be…

"I do, however, want to be sure you all saw this. Because this is some Big Ten shit."

A large, empty white space following this sentence might be the most Big Ten shit of all.

10/23/2018 - 8:48pm Hello posts again? …

Hello posts again? 

Excellent.

Maybe now we'll get the Cornell Wheeler one.

10/16/2018 - 8:15am Even though he acts like it,…

Even though he acts like it, he's not a child that has to be coddled. He's a state employee who complains way too much about being asked questions. When he acts like this it makes him look as bad as his colleague in East Lansing.

I'm pretty sure the Michigan Marching Band is the only marching band that would much prefer if it were a chamber music quartet, and by god if they won't try to play at the same volume as one.

10/12/2018 - 9:20pm Was there supposed to be a…

Was there supposed to be a segment after the Gimmicky Top 5? The video stops at 45:56 for me, both here and if I watch it on youtube.

10/12/2018 - 1:57pm How is the concept of …

How is the concept of "inside" difficult? The median is the center, and the inside lane is the one closest to it. On a three lane highway, you drive in the center, exit from the outside lane, and pass in the inside lane. I understand that safe driving practices are generally difficult for Michigan drivers to understand, but I figured you folks could keep up with the vocab.

10/12/2018 - 12:00pm Maybe where you're from that…

Maybe where you're from that is what it is called. Where I'm from it is the inside or passing lane.

10/12/2018 - 11:47am This is a car you see and…

This is a car you see and just know that they'll spend most of their time on the interstate doing 3 mph over the limit in the inside lane, and then give you a dirty look when you finally give up and pass them on the right.

10/11/2018 - 7:38pm When did Pioneer stop…

When did Pioneer stop allowing trucks bigger than an F-150? A few years ago I parked there in a Ram 3500 Dually.

10/10/2018 - 5:05pm I've noticed that happening…

I've noticed that happening in the past when it's a campaign that is trending. I think it is just a matter of the site being a bit overwhelmed. You might want to try in off-peak hours to get it to go through.

10/08/2018 - 8:30am I think we all understand…

I think we all understand Ace is out, but didn't Brian hire a couple of new guys? And the commit post said that there would be a full Hello the next day. And honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if 3.0 is so broken that it just never published.

09/29/2018 - 10:53pm As soon as you acknowledge…

As soon as you acknowledge that one of the penalties was completely insane.

Another, Runyan's hold, doesn't make any sense when compared to the non-calls, like Chase getting tackled, going the other way.

And that a third was committed because DBs who play press coverage are coached to take a penalty when they're beaten off the line instead of giving up a nearly sure TD.

False stars and off sides calls happen. I still don't know what Thomas did differently from any other punt to get a penalty this time.

09/29/2018 - 9:23pm On one of the first…

On one of the first defensive plays of the game Bush hit Thorson after he got the ball out almost exactly like Hudson's hit from last week. I was sure there was going to be a flag thrown for it because the universe hates me.

Who is getting the ad revenue for the ad on the GIF?

09/25/2018 - 8:35pm There are some tournaments…

There are some tournaments involving multiple teams, but those are in the fall. During the spring season it is all team vs team until the NCAA tournament where individuals can advance without their team.

09/25/2018 - 11:56am Why not? They have a more…

Why not? They have a more recent national championship than any of the sports that normally get coverage here. Probably the best coach at Michigan too.

09/24/2018 - 3:14pm If Gary was injured, it…

If Gary was injured, it would seem it was more likely his knee that they were worried about. He took a direct hit from Metellus's helmet on the interception, and then was limping shortly after that when he was trying to chase someone down.

And I'm not sure if Brian has ever played a sport where you catch a ball, but if your fingers and thumbs curl around it, you are definitely trying to catch it instead of trying to bat it down.

09/24/2018 - 1:17pm Thanks for blocking them. I…

Thanks for blocking them. I'm curious how you weren't aware that they were still around though. Are you also unaware that points don't work, we can't save our preferences in the comments section, and that the Diaries/MGoBoard come unstuck if you look at the website the wrong way?

09/24/2018 - 11:12am Gotta be honest, I'm not…

Gotta be honest, I'm not sure I would click on any of the ads here, outside of perhaps the couple for hotels that I see. They all look designed to infect my computer and steal my credit card info.

So I really hope you aren't counting on us clicking on them for you to get paid.

09/24/2018 - 9:53am I guess it's a good thing…

I guess it's a good thing for you guys that there is a ton of white space to slap ads in.

Any chance that the ads can not be ones for mail-order women? 

09/23/2018 - 9:10am Does anyone know if Ethan…

Does anyone know if Ethan goes to these, or is just transcribing the audio? I miss the MGoQuestions.

09/22/2018 - 8:42pm He's the Shane Morris of…

He's the Shane Morris of kickers. Everything is at maximum velocity with him. I assume that poses a problem on an XP and makes him "snatch" at the ball if the timing isn't perfect. 

09/21/2018 - 6:17pm The death penalty is to…

The death penalty is too severe for a program that killed a kid? 

That's an interesting position to take.

Did Seth just out one of his sock puppet accounts with this post?

09/21/2018 - 2:11pm Switch to HUDL and use the…

Switch to HUDL and use the circles that look like fire rings that are in all of the recruiting videos. Add some sick beats and you'll really have something.

09/21/2018 - 12:08pm Any chance the pop-out boxes…

Any chance the pop-out boxes for videos and the yellow box around the player being pointed out in said videos ever returns? 

Having to right-click and open a new window for every video, full screen the video, and then rewind to the beginning of the video while looking for the relevant player makes reading these take quite a bit longer.

09/21/2018 - 11:24am I'm in the same boat. I'm…

I'm in the same boat. I'm really hoping they aren't on the whole show so that I can still enjoy part of it.

09/21/2018 - 10:49am That's a strong argument. I…

That's a strong argument. I'm sure you've convinced everyone with your stunning insight.

09/21/2018 - 10:25am Question about the cyan…

Question about the cyan circles. Didn't JBB end the year with just half a circle because of his prowess at run blocking? Any chance you can bring that back?

09/21/2018 - 9:39am Any chance this we'll get…

Any chance this we'll get another update on bug fixes? It's been nearly a month.

I'm asking because the bug where the Diaries and MGoBoard get unstuck and move to the bottom left of the screen still exists. Happens almost every time I reply to a comment and then have to change the number of replies on the screen back to 100. Getting either one of those fixed would be pretty awesome.

Also, still wondering if there is any chance you can find advertisers who don't look like they're trafficking kidnapped women. I'm assuming we'll never get rid of the swimsuit ads, despite your readership being almost entirely male.

09/20/2018 - 10:59pm He might want to think about…

He might want to think about passing off the Hello posts to another one of his multiple employees, as he is the only person capable of writing the UFR. Or, if he insists on writing the Hello post, he could pass of the Unverified Veracity post to someone else. I would think that by this point in the life cycle of his business he would have a better grasp of time management.

09/20/2018 - 9:58pm I didn't realize Ace helped…

I didn't realize Ace helped write the UFR. 

09/20/2018 - 8:59pm You should unionize so you…

You should unionize so you don't have to do that bullshit.

09/20/2018 - 7:58pm Probably because it is his…

Probably because it is his job. Just like the rest of us somehow drag ourselves to work 5 days a week, he's mostly managed to about 9 UFR's a year.

09/19/2018 - 12:27pm My biggest concern with his…

My biggest concern with his movement is that he doesn't appear capable of running. It looks more like he waddles down the field. To me, that speaks to a lack of flexibility and athleticism. I'm not saying it can't get fixed, but at this point he looks like a guy you wouldn't expect to see on the field until he's a RS JR.

09/19/2018 - 10:47am I've been intrigued by the…

I've been intrigued by the lack of development by football players in lateral agility. It's something we work with tennis players on a lot, and we can get some pretty impressive gains from them. I don't know if football programs just don't work on it the right way, or if the muscle and size gains necessary for the rest of their skill sets prevents them from improving. Or it could just be that "macho" football players aren't willing to do the resistance band work necessary to improve because it isn't about picking up and putting down large weights.

09/19/2018 - 10:26am You can't teach length. He's…

You can't teach length. He's not tall enough and his arms are too short to deal with edge rushers on an every down basis. 

09/19/2018 - 10:19am "moves like someone 50…

"moves like someone 50 pounds lighter near the line of scrimmage and even into the second level."

Were we watching the same film? He looks more heavy-footed and slower than Onwenu. He's absolutely powerful in a small area, but I would imagine they're going to have to take a bunch of bad weight off of him and then rebuild him. It looks like way too much mass is in his gut and not his legs.

09/17/2018 - 7:46pm They put microphones near…

They put microphones near where the band sits. They are not mic'd on the field. Michigan has a sub-par band, and has for quite some time. They're easily in the bottom half of the B1G. There are high school bands with better sound quality.
