I assume it's because Brian hates us.

08/20/2018 - 9:04pm One of the things I'm most…

One of the things I'm most looking forward to after getting more comfortable on my sailboat is getting offshore and doing some fishing on the way to the Bahamas. Just the idea of having the freshest possible sushi is enough to put me in a good mood when I'm upside down in a lazarette working on something.

08/20/2018 - 3:47pm I prefer walking out past…

I prefer walking out past the light house in St. Joseph when the the lake freezes, but this is pretty cool too.

08/20/2018 - 12:22pm I doubt it happens this year…

I doubt it happens this year. They have him learning two positions, and apparently his defense is quite a bit behind his offense. The chances of a freshman learning the offense and defense at the 2 & 4 well enough to force out a returning starter seems to be slim to none. 

I think it's pretty safe to say that none of the freshmen are going to be starters this year, barring an injury.

08/20/2018 - 9:16am That's how I read it as well…

That's how I read it as well, so if I don't get my copy in the mail today I should wonder where it's at. But now I'm concerned that if I ask I'll just get a link to a post from two weeks ago as an answer.

I'm not sure why I bother supporting the kickstarter at this point if I can just wait, order it from a store, pay the same price, and get it weeks earlier.

08/17/2018 - 11:44am I think it's a combination…

I think it's a combination of two things.

1. They aren't breaking it up the same way, so you get two longer segments, so that really short third segment makes it feel shorter.

2. The ad reads definitely feel longer. Especially when Sam is doing one for something he actually uses. It's almost like he ad-libs for an additional bit of time.

08/17/2018 - 9:30am I'm still waiting in…

I'm still waiting in Wilmington, NC. At least this week the google document says it will ship to here next week, which is an improvement over last week when it said it was going to ship in two weeks to Colombus.

08/16/2018 - 7:54pm I ended up talking to Seth…

I ended up talking to Seth today about something else and then it got around to you and Alex. He explained what was going on with staffing and what not. 

I think the point I was trying to make was that we had gotten used to contributions from people that suddenly weren't around anymore and no one really knew why. I get that people want to maintain some privacy when this isn't their full time job. However, there should be a balance that's relatively easy to reach where we don't know anything about your life that you don't want us to know, but we're still kept in the loop about people not writing here anymore or changing things up. I think it would help to avoid some of the idiocy that we had today.

08/16/2018 - 4:03pm Seriously, go fuck yourself,…

Seriously, go fuck yourself, you pompous asshole. 

08/16/2018 - 3:34pm Oh the absolute irony of you…

Oh the absolute irony of you whining about me calling you a dick.

I was wrong. You're a reprehensible piece of shit who would do well to fuck all the way off.

08/16/2018 - 1:43pm Yours seems to be the…

Yours seems to be the minority opinion.

08/16/2018 - 1:26pm If I remember correctly, he…

If I remember correctly, he had a few mental lapses, but it was more that he doesn't have the super quick feet and violent hands that great pass blockers have. I remember someone describing him as a guard in a tackle's body when he was recruited or in his first couple of years.

I'm guessing if he were Runyan's size, no one would have ever thought to put him on the outside, but when you're built like an NFL OT, you play OT.

08/16/2018 - 1:23pm We prefer to be called…

We prefer to be called warlocks.

08/16/2018 - 1:22pm Will do. I've tried a couple…

Will do. I've tried a couple of times since the 502 error that just happened, and it's back to just unpinning the diaries and board and putting them at the bottom left of the screen.

08/16/2018 - 1:13pm Just a test.

Just a test.

08/16/2018 - 1:10pm Just a test

Just a test

08/16/2018 - 1:09pm I've had that happen as well…

I've had that happen as well. But once it sent me to the third page but it was the first comment from the thread. That one was odd.

08/16/2018 - 12:44pm Just accept that you're…

Just accept that you're wrong about this. There is no shame in admitting that you've made a mistake. 

As someone who has dealt with a chronic health issue that most people don't understand, I'm probably hyper-aware of people belittling similar situations in others. I'm sure your poor word choice wasn't deliberate, but that doesn't mean it wasn't wrong of you to imply that all Ace needs is some rest. 

08/16/2018 - 12:40pm With improved blocking from…

With improved blocking from RBs and TEs to go along with a more mobile QB, I'll be surprised if it is JBB who loses his job. From everything we've seen and been told by the coaches, he's the best run-blocking OT on the team right now. So as long as he isn't completely blowing his assignment on passing plays, it seems likely he's the one to stick.

08/16/2018 - 12:14pm It doesn't hurt my feelings…

It doesn't hurt my feelings at all. You're just a dick for implying that all he needs to do is rest. The rest of the arguments you've presented are perfectly reasonable, and I tend to agree with them. I simply feel that the way you've framed Ace's situation is both incorrect and ignorant.

08/16/2018 - 11:13am You were doing so well until…

You were doing so well until the completely unnecessary and uneducated shots at Ace. He's not being paid to "rest." He's dealing with a debilitating illness.

08/16/2018 - 11:11am I'm not sure what it is that…

I'm not sure what it is that you understand if you think ad revenue isn't paying the bills around here.

Where do you think the money is coming from?

08/16/2018 - 9:29am And Alex Cook seems to have…

And Alex Cook seems to have disappeared as well. I can't even seem to find an active twitter account for him.

Matt Way has written two or three articles.

But looking at the Draftageddon stuff, it appears that the only active staff are Brian, Ace, Seth, and BiSB.

08/16/2018 - 9:16am How is it much better?

How is it much better? 

It takes longer.
It's not as clear because the audio is generally shitty.
I'm limited as to where I can do it.

None of that makes it better.

08/16/2018 - 8:53am Did I miss a post about Adam…

Did I miss a post about Adam Schnepp leaving the blog? Because he's handled most of the pressers for at least the last year, right?

08/16/2018 - 8:51am What's the purpose of being…

What's the purpose of being a mod anymore if they don't give you the ability to actually moderate the board?

08/15/2018 - 9:33am Does that mean Adam and Alex…

Does that mean Adam and Alex don't write here anymore? 

And since you're here, is there a reason the mods haven't been given the authority to ban users?

08/14/2018 - 1:50pm A guy that can clear 6'6" in…

A guy that can clear 6'6" in high school without specializing in just that has all of the athletic upside that you need to be a RB in college football. Especially if he was doing that weighing anywhere near 200 pounds.

08/11/2018 - 12:32am I'm 6'2" and wear a 12 in…

I'm 6'2" and wear a 12 in Nike and a 11.5 in Adidas. I'd guess you're looking at one of the bigger wings for 15s and 16s, or maybe one of the smaller centers. 

Now, if they're from football players, it's going to be a different story just because of the weight they're carrying making it more likely they have bigger feet.

08/11/2018 - 12:26am How do you grab a woman's…

How do you grab a woman's genitalia in a non-sexual way?

08/09/2018 - 11:25pm I was worried about the same…

I was worried about the same thing when I switched from plasma. Within a couple of months I didn't notice it anymore. Probably helped that the switch happened during soccer/CFB season, and I think sports look better on LED.

I'm just here to pile on. That button has been there since the relaunch.

08/08/2018 - 6:57pm Even adding slants and…

Even adding slants and screens to his package would have helped. And he's shown he can catch those.

08/08/2018 - 1:21pm Compare people in France and…

Compare people in France and Italy to people in America. Let me know which is fatter. Cooking with oil isn't at all unhealthy, and cooking with butter is fine if you eat in moderation. Both also taste a whole hell of a lot better than a cooking spray.

And I clean my cast iron with a paper towel, salt, and a piece of chain mail. Definitely not using those on my non-stick pans.

08/08/2018 - 1:12pm They've finally caught on…

They've finally caught on that Cronk is bad! I watched kids from the smallest schools in Indiana go around him, and Purdue basically ignore him despite him being in their backyard. IU was just desperate for linemen, and he was approximately the right size and available.

Use diesel, not gas. The fire will get deeper into the hole.

08/08/2018 - 10:38am Use more butter or oil to…

Use more butter or oil to prevent getting all that nasty black shit on your pots and pans. If you need a hard sear on something, do it in cast iron. 

08/07/2018 - 6:02pm It does now that you've…

It does now that you've updated it.

08/07/2018 - 4:49pm Not cool. Hasn't made it to…

Not cool. Hasn't made it to the coast in NC yet. Unless we get a third delivery of mail today and it's in that shipment.

08/07/2018 - 1:37pm The majority of the kids in…

The majority of the kids in my high school graduating class were a direct result of the Blizzard of 78 in Indiana.

08/07/2018 - 1:19pm I wondered what all the fuss…

I wondered what all the fuss was about because we'd been out of power for 13 days in an ice storm in '91.

08/07/2018 - 11:42am I was 3 or 4 years old. Mom…

I was 3 or 4 years old. Mom left me in the front seat of the Chrysler K Wagon with the motor running because she had to run in and grab her coffee. I slid over to her seat and bumped it down into reverse. Made it about 200 yards across our yard, the neighbor's yard, over a couple of saplings, and into a corn field. Mom held onto the door handle for about 180 yards.

I learned to steer and shift sitting on my dad's lap in a mid-80's Dodge Dakota. Learned car control and how fast "too fast" was in my first car, an '89 Firebird. Learned how to do burnouts with an automatic in a '90 454 SS.

08/07/2018 - 1:25am I'm not going to read…

I'm not going to read through this whole thing, and the search function still doesn't work, so here goes.

The "latest post" timestamp when you are viewing the board is broken. Right now it is showing every entry on the first page of the board as having a comment within the last few minutes, aside from the very last entry, which shows up as having a post from 21 hours ago. I checked a couple to make sure it wasn't some random person or bot posting stuff, and that isn't the case.

Since for some reason we can't get any sort of notification about new posts on a thread, this was the only way to even have an idea if a thread was still active.  Seriously, how hard is it to mark unread comments? Even disqus does it.

08/06/2018 - 3:17pm I'm curious to see if he's…

I'm curious to see if he's added the strength to hold up to big interior linemen that gave him so much trouble when he was younger.

08/06/2018 - 1:33pm Has anyone been paying…

Has anyone been paying attention to Franz that would like to chime in? Is there any interest either way? 

08/06/2018 - 12:39pm We need to have a talk about…

We need to have a talk about keeping those little guys.

08/04/2018 - 2:59pm Let's be fair. If it was an…

Let's be fair. If it was an under the radar guy who played defense, I doubt there would be any real complaints. Maybe a few guys wondering why he wasn't put off if there were more highly regarded recruits that were still a possibility, but not anything really negative. Don Brown and his staff, just like Beilein, have earned the benefit of the doubt when it comes to recruiting. The only spot on offense that gets that pass are the TEs and maybe the interior linemen.

08/04/2018 - 2:47pm The 2018 class is a guy who…

The 2018 class is a guy who hasn't focused on football until now. That's it.

And yes, this is a TE heavy offense, but we still need more WRs than TEs.

08/04/2018 - 2:38pm Seems there is a pretty…

Seems there is a pretty decent chance that at least one if not two will be gone though. And the 2018 class wasn't full of sure things, so...

Just a suggestion for next year, but could you list their heights as well?
