Yeah, he should be banned, but why are you replying to yourself?

 The post is basically the epitome of #5, objectifying women. If we are to take this ModActionSticky seriously, the post has to be deleted and aaamichfan should be banned.

Geek? Was that really necessary? Grow up.

As an Angel fan, this made me sad. Scioscia deserved better in his final season. Oh well.

I saw Peppers’ punt return. Cue Babs, “memory, all alone in the moonlight...”

09/20/2018 - 8:32pm Can Brian hire an intern to…

Can Brian hire an intern to dictate the UFR to? That would free him up to make snarky comments about Seth’s Draftageddon picks. You know, stuff that’s really important. He’s the CEO of this enterprise. He shouldn’t have to be entering data into a spreadsheet for 2 whole days 10 weeks of the year.

09/20/2018 - 8:29pm Yeah, but he should give…

Yeah, but he should give himself a stern talking to.

09/20/2018 - 10:24am Agreed. He played well…

Agreed. He played well enough while he was in. We would have won with competent quarterbacking. I think we would have won the Bowl game if played in that game. The early season narrative would have been different if we won the bowl game. A) No one would be talking about 4 losses in a row and B) 9-9 would not have been a thing. We need more offensive line depth so we can handle multiple issues (Newsome injury, LTT cut, JBB suspended for bowl game.)

09/19/2018 - 11:13pm The other top tackle was Coy…

The other top tackle was Coy Cronk. When he graduates and retires from football, he should open a boxing gym.

 I hope the Patriots draft him. ”Gronk and Cronk” could be the next great buddy-cop movie. It would be awesome to get John Madden to come back from retirement to announce just one of their games. (Is he still alive?)

”There’s Cronk, makin’ da block, anddenya got Gronk, makin’ da catch {slobbers gently on himself.} Whap, bang, Cronk andda Gronk, heh heh heh, CRONK!” {more slobbering...}

My grandma’s neighbor was named Nebras. That’s a pretty good Nebraskan name. I never found out what his last name was. I like to imagine it was “Corn.”

Back when the Big 10 had 10 teams, Michigan and Ohio State beat up everybody and took turns winning the conference. The Big 10 added 2 teams to add strength to the top of the conference. For the Indianas of the conference, that sucked. It made it that much tougher to get your 6 wins and a bowl invite, and forget about ever winning the conference. What adding Rutgers does is give the conference a doormat so that all the other 13 schools can feel better by comparison.

He childishly wrote “Notre Damn,” which is similar to calling us “scUM,” so there’s that. I believe that’s a bannable offense, FWIW.

She’s living in a fantasy world, but I agree, good for her.

Bo was 5-4-1 against Woody, IIRC. He also owned MSU and won his share against ND. He couldn’t win the Rose Bowl (except once or twice) but at least he got there.

 I would like to see a comparison between the number of penalties per game under Bo versus under Harbaugh. Harbaugh’s teams appear to lack the discipline that Bo’s teams had. One of Bo’s credos was don’t beat yourself.

I don’t get Netflix so I didn’t recognize 90% of the nominees

P.S. While Hollywood celebrates people for reciting lines written for them, ESPN is re-running the Urban Meyer interview

Worse than that, this could cost him the Heisman, per ESPN. 

I’m kidding, I think.

I watched a little of the UCLA game Saturday. Listening to the announcers say, “DTR,” over and over again got old in a hurry.

09/17/2018 - 3:56pm My son is a freshman in high…

My son is a freshman in high school. He's playing trumpet in the band. I've been to 2 of their games so far. I, for the most part, enjoyed the games. Yes, I did spend the 3rd quarter reading MGoBlog during one of the games, but that's besides the point. I do like watching football.

I've watched all three Michigan games this year on TV. I turned the ND game off with 10 minutes left in the 4th quarter. I don't think I've ever done that before. I did watch the rest of the game the next day. The Western game was fun. This SMU game was a slog. I stopped watching the live action and watched the end of the Wisconsin game. Again, I don't think that's something I've ever done before.

It may be that I'm getting older and don't want to put up with bullshit anymore just because of "tradition." My dad went through a similar phase, but I think he was in his late 50's when he gave up his season tickets. The games should be fun, but too often lately they seem like a chore. I even think this team is really good, but we're not going to know anything until Wisconsin and more likely the @MSU game. Can this team win on the road against a ranked opponent?

I also wonder if the dreaded "expectations" are conspiring to suck the joy out of the game. When I read all week, from multiple sources, that SMU sucks, they're S&P+ > 100 or whatever, and we should win 62-5, when we don't, that sucks. Yes, a 25 point win is great. But when you expect to win by 50, that's a 25 point move to the wrong side of things.

So why were the high school games better to watch?

1. I got great seats (minus the light towers that are inexplicably placed between the stands and the field.)

2. NO TV TIMEOUTS!!! I can't stress this enough. The game moves along at a reasonable pace. (Also no replay reviews. I would seriously limit a replay review to 30 seconds. If it's not clear in 30 seconds, you're better off just letting it stand and moving on, because if it's not clear, it's just going to be argued by whichever side lost the review.)

3. Zero expectations. I have no idea what's going to happen or what should happen and so every play is interesting to see what does happen.

4. I hesitate to add this one, but here goes. The game was in the evening. I didn't have to suffer through 4 hours of direct sunlight. I was invited to a UCLA game a couple weeks ago, and my first thought was, hell no. I'm not sitting for 4 hours in the daytime (and 100 degree temperature) in Pasadena for any reason.

09/17/2018 - 10:29am He makes that statement…

He makes that statement about not condoning domestic abuse as if some people do condone it. What world does he live in? Seriously, after he wrote that line, shouldn’t a little bell go off in his little brain? The little bell that tells him he is a sad, pathetic, win-at-all-costs sociopath. Do the right thing, retire again, for good this time. And when you do, stay away from the game. We don’t want to hear from you ever again.

Detroit and Cleveland exist.

We shouldn't count Nebraska either. 

09/16/2018 - 2:50pm This is what happens when we…

This is what happens when we have a clear #1 starter at QB. Folks have to have something to talk about, so they start a “who should be the starting tackles” discussion. JBB and Runyan went the whole way yesterday so now it’s a RB controversy. Next week, it’ll be “why is McKeon getting more snaps than Eubanks?” 

09/16/2018 - 11:15am Was anyone able to get into…

Was anyone able to get into the live blog? It asked for my email address to send me an authentication email. I’m still waiting for that email to arrive. I expect to be making live blog comments about the game on Tuesday.

It should be and that guy is going to get blasted the next time he returns a punt.

Sounds like you are describing baseball. Games stretch on and on (don’t look now, time for another pitching change.)

09/16/2018 - 12:45am I for one hope MSU shows up…

I for one hope MSU shows up to play us in November because I’m pretty sure that game is in October.

An ugly 25 point win is still a 25 point win.

Meh.

First time checking in today. Let me guess, the mood is salty.

Have 2 players ever been ejected for targeting on the same play?

2 Huskers went head to head on Troy’s QB.

And Neb picks up another PF. They are spiraling out of control

Huge defensive stop there for Troy

Something is brewing in Lincoln. It smells like rotten corn chowder.

09/15/2018 - 12:44pm Troy is getting screwed by…

Troy is getting screwed by the refs. The INT was a 50/50 catch that should have gone to the offense. That was a fumble by Nebraska and refs compounded the error by flagging Troy Trojans of Troy head coach.

Troy might still win because Nebraska is awful.

Nebraska safety celebrated a 5 yard gain by Troy. Safety should have been tossed for targeting.

I am surprised the “George Perles-covers-up-rape” issue was mostly a one-day story. Maybe that will be talked about again when/if it gets to trial. That story seems worse than the Nasser story itself because it is basically Nasser plus a multi-institutional cover-up of Nasser. But it barely moved the needle nationally.

George got lucky there was a major hurricane this week to occupy the media.

Correcting a guy like that for making a simple mistake is just mean.

There’s an expression that goes something like this: me thinks thou dost protest too much.

I gotta admit to feeling somewhat slighted by being left off your hit list. Que sera, sera.

Is Gibbons on the Board of Trustees? Fuck off, troll.

In the Wizard of Oz, the Lion had no courage. These Lions have no heart, courage or brain.

MSU is not good between 1AM and 2AM ~2000 miles from home in 90 degree heat. I am glad they lost, but extrapolating from that game is a fool’s errand.

09/10/2018 - 5:13pm Wow, what a total lack of…

Wow, what a total lack of self-awareness you display making that comment.

Of the second unit, Filiaga and Spanellis looked like the most ready to step into the starting lineup in the interior.

Reader played offensive line in college. I’m pretty sure if anyone is full of shit about offensive line play it’s not him.

Ulizio was worse. There’s a reason he’s now the third string left guard.

That’s a really good site. I think you should spend more time there.

09/09/2018 - 4:26pm Mayfield is backing up…

Mayfield is backing up Runyan and he played almost the whole 4th quarter.

 I can see Mayfield starting next season, but right now he’s not strong enough or experienced enough to go head to head with Wisconsin, PSU, MSU or OSU.

This was Runyan’s 2nd start at LT. I have been one of his biggest critics, but I am not ready to give up on him just because a true freshman looked good in garbage time against a bad MAC line. Give him another chance. 

09/09/2018 - 1:01pm Yawn...

Who took a dump in your Cheerios? 

I took a look at your posting history. Sorry life has been so shitty to you.

BTW, when I asked Bo for an autograph, he obliged.

They wilted in the desert heat and it was 2AM their time. Spartans are used to getting DUIs and raping at that time, not playing football.

09/09/2018 - 11:03am Hudson played RT on the…

Hudson played RT on the second team’s scoring drive. He looked OK to me, but opponent caveat applies. If he is going to play tackle from now on, I would like them to change his number from 55 to something in the 70s.
