No one that thicc should be able to move that fast.

Caught me off guard when you said a coach had been Paternoing. Might be time to reference one of the other coaches that held on way too long when talking about an older coach dropping off.

Save the Paterno references for ex-OSU wrestling coaches who are now elected politicians.

I'd guess not enough teams use a proper fullback anymore to bother rating the 3 or 4 starters at the position in the league. Might as well just combine them with the APB to save a bit of time.

I've joked about it in the past, but seriously, if you ever need someone to edit so you guys can focus on other stuff, I would be more than happy to do it for free. I have experience and the free time.

07/18/2018 - 2:42pm Here's the thing. I was one…

Here's the thing. I was one of the people that really enjoyed Draftageddon and just thought the formatting on the posts just need a bit of tweaking. 

Now the majority of this reads like the second draft I'd get from kids in a play writing class I TA'd after I told them it wasn't a great idea to have all of the characters giving long declarations back and forth so they went the complete opposite direction and just had a continuous back and forth of a sentence or two between every character on stage.

07/17/2018 - 8:34pm I'd really love it if…

I'd really love it if someone took a look at front page posting rates for July over the last few years. It seems as if this year is slower than normal. Brian's posts about the freshmen seem to be trickling out extremely slowly. I know Ace is probably posting a lower rate for very good reasons, so that isn't helping. And I'm not sold on the new guy yet. I tried to make it through his Teske post, and I just couldn't. The combination of the formatting and the awful white background just made it a pain to try to slog through.

Who knows, it might just be my imagination because I'm desperate for something to read aside from the news.

I would have to have a 32" monitor or zoom out so much as to make the text illegible to have seen that pattern.

Thank you.

It's not a thing that needs fixed, but an explanation would be pretty awesome after all this time.

Why are there different colored borders at random points throughout comment threads?

07/16/2018 - 5:36pm I've never seen Amon before…

I've never seen Amon before that video, but I'm absolutely impressed. He reminds me of Danny Rose when he was younger, except his first touch when sprinting is actually good.

07/16/2018 - 5:08pm That is a great idea. There…

That is a great idea. There is a ton of unused space on when I view it on my computer. I'm guessing there is a mobile-related reason for not using all of that space, but you would think they could figure out something to take it up.

And I don't know if it's related, but every time a post runs past where the board ends I tend to not finish it. The harsh contrast and the unattractive view lead me to just skipping to the comments to see if I missed anything.

07/16/2018 - 5:05pm To be fair, I'm pretty sure…

To be fair, I'm pretty sure someone said the plan wasn't to launch with all the white space. I think it was one of those last minute things that didn't work when they were getting ready to go live that had been working.

07/16/2018 - 3:55pm I really wasn't trying to…

I really wasn't trying to bitch. I was just hoping someone would have a theory or explanation for how the site was intended to look and work. I'd rather talk about this than hop on twitter today. I am so sorry to have offended you. Please, can you ever forgive me?

07/16/2018 - 3:53pm It's my understanding the…

It's my understanding the white space is going away next. I saw a post from Seth, I think, that they figured out how to do it.

But that poses a much bigger question. How is that a web development company has to "figure out" how to change the background color?

07/13/2018 - 11:02am Is there any chance that…

Is there any chance that these can, more routinely, have an all-Michigan section? I can't be the only one who just doesn't care about the NBA as a whole but would like to keep up with Michigan alumni.

07/12/2018 - 4:21pm I miss rotary phones. I…

I miss rotary phones. I still remember the summer I learned I could prank call my own house by hanging up before the dial rotated all the way back from the last number. I drove my older sister even crazier than normal that year.

07/11/2018 - 5:10pm Are all of the honorable…

Are all of the honorable mentions supposed to be links to videos?

I'm only asking because I had to refresh three times to get the embedded videos in the post to show up in the right order, so I'm not sure if something even screwier is going on.

Also, I love the list, and can't believe my only nitpick is that you've somehow overrated Woodson.  Lewis passed him with that interception. The difficulty meter was even higher, and it was against a good team.

06/30/2018 - 2:17pm I just checked the board…

I just checked the board from my phone earlier today. I was amazed at how awful it looked. It's completely impossible to follow a conversation when there are more than 20 or so comments.

06/28/2018 - 7:39pm He literally just got his…

He literally just got his customer feedback in the form of money in an all-time high amount.

If you were really just concerned and didn't want to make sure everyone saw your opinion, you would have just emailed him. You've been around long enough to know that these guys read and respond to email.

06/28/2018 - 5:42pm Pretty sure everyone who…

Pretty sure everyone who cares knows Brian's political leanings, and he still just raised $81,512 for a preview magazine a year after the team was relatively disappointing. 

Just keep concern trolling though, because it totally makes you look like the good guy.

06/28/2018 - 5:29pm I don't come here for hockey…

I don't come here for hockey coverage, because I'm not Canadian. Doesn't mean I complain about it when it gets published. That's because I'm not an asshole who thinks everyone needs to hear his negative opinion.

06/23/2018 - 12:47pm I looked at the choices. I…

I looked at the choices. I just can't figure out what it is you're expecting to be able to watch if not a single one of those did it for you. The only things missing are musicals, religious movies, and the straight to video conspiracy crap.  Oh, and the aforementioned art house films.

06/23/2018 - 12:23pm If you don't think Goonies…

If you don't think Goonies is good, you should probably just stop watching movies.

06/23/2018 - 9:38am Looking for art house films?…

Looking for art house films?
Black Panther is a wildly popular movie, so now I'm rather curious as to what it is you wanted to be able to vote for.

Take the MLB money and avoid CTE.

I didn't think it was possible for Cowherd to get more insecure as he got older, but he certainly has.

You know you're overcompensating when you have your set built so that you're sitting two feet higher than your guest so as to give yourself a physical sense of superiority. And then when you add in the lighting designed to literally cast the guest in a shadow? Holy shit, that guy obviously has some serious self-confidence issues.

And the makeup is just hilariously bad. When it's so thick you can still tell it's too much from the wide shot, you know what it's hiding must be really bad.

I honestly don't understand why someone would choose college football over getting drafted in the first three rounds in baseball. Just the long-term health consequences would be a huge weight on the side of sticking with baseball.

Taking my new to me sailboat out as much as possible. Which includes a week-long shakedown cruise over the 4th of July.  All in preparation of shoving off next spring for an extended period.

I was referring to Jalen and Chris. 

And as someone already pointed out, Jalen just didn't get caught.

If they hadn't gotten in trouble, the university would have been putting them in the spotlight for the last 25 years to continue to profit off of their likenesses and accomplishments.

A bug and a design critique.

The search function isn't working. I know someone else commented on that in this thread, but I haven't seen a recognition or explanation for it in here, so it's probably worth pointing out again.

Why does the banner need a background? It's busy and looks like a template from a wordpress blog. It also adds to the sense of misalignment when you're scrolled all the way to the top. There are just so many different vertical lines, and having the banner on a background just adds to that.

06/16/2018 - 12:44pm Somehow they've actually…

Somehow they've actually made it more difficult to follow long conversations in the comments. Just look at the first page of this post for an example of how awful it is.

Should have just paid for Disqus.

After that match yesterday, Egypt probably shouldn't be expecting 3 points off of Russia. Not saying they won't get it, but Russia looked considerably better than they have the rest of the year.

Is it really a better site to consume staff-generated content?

It takes more scrolling to get to what they write. What they write is surround by a harsh white background. I'm not sure it's all that much of an improvement.

06/11/2018 - 1:54pm I can't believe they paid…

I can't believe they paid someone to come up with the design that leads to that abomination.

The second row doesn't really seem necessary on a site that isn't throwing up half a dozen posts a day where you might miss one.  It just looks like a bad copy of any of a dozen other sites done for no other reason that it's different than what came before.  And seriously, why would a design gets used that doesn't even bother to line up all of the disparate pieces?  It just looks sloppy and lazy.

Didn't there used to be an option for just one unsigned book and the shirt?

This place is whiter than a family reunion in Montana in January.

Atonement is a better film about Dunkirk.

05/21/2018 - 2:37pm Those are good for spreading

Those are good for spreading the mulch around the plants. 
When I helped my parents mulch, I'd use a big fork to get it out of the big trailer behind the truck and into the small one behind the tractor.  Then use the little fork to spread it in the flower beds.

I spent years doing that with them, and when I moved out of the area they replaced almost all of the mulch with decorative stone.  To this day, I question their timing.

05/21/2018 - 1:17pm It's a lot easier to stick a

It's a lot easier to stick a pitchfork into a wet pile of mulch than a snow shovel.

And yes, it's enormously less expensive to buy mulch in bulk versus by the bag.

Go forth and mulch!

05/09/2018 - 11:42am He's a reasonably fast guy

He's a reasonably fast guy who was really good at blocking as a freshman. I would assume playing on special teams fits right into his skillset.

05/01/2018 - 1:21pm This is the kind of stuff

This is the kind of stuff that used to cause Brian to write 2000 word take downs of other writers.

Now?

Not sure how Long gets so far in front of Hill. Wasn't it Long who was splitting time with Watson last year?

I've dealth with dozens and dozens of them in my life. If you don't have the ability to secure your trash, which isn't really that hard, then you need to learn to shoot. Aside from opossums, they are the easiest pest animal to shoot and kill. Drowning them or poisoning them is in no way humane.

04/27/2018 - 4:15pm I get why Hawkeye wasn't in

I get why Hawkeye wasn't in the movie, but not having Ant Man in it seems strange. Especially since they are still planning on doing the next Ant Man movie.

Anyone who is more versed in the comic books know what the image on Nick Fury's device was?

04/23/2018 - 12:26pm Can we please stop comparing

Can we please stop comparing everything to Bo? He thought the forward pass was the devil for the majority of his life and his offense was less complex than what Peters ran at Avon. 

04/23/2018 - 12:25pm "it looks disorganized"
It

"it looks disorganized"
It is disorganized. Even in his first year, there were multiple instances of plays getting in so late that there was no time for adjustments or reads. There is a reason that no winning program uses a system like this, and it should be blindingly obvious why.

I don't care why reporters are asking about it, because I don't blame assistant coaches for failures. Every single coaching failure is Harbaugh's fault. He's the head coach, he hires everyone, he's responsible for everyone. I guarantee you that he feels the exact same way.

 

04/23/2018 - 11:36am For the life of me I can't

For the life of me I can't figure out why none of the offensive coaches can offer a decent explanation of how play calling on this team works. I also don't understand why they don't want to answer the question. Explaining that, after there have been a couple seasons of valid concerns about the speed and source of playcalls, isn't going to give the opponent some sort of strategic advantage. It's not like the opposing team is going to jam their communications because they know which specific guy is making play calls.
