In case anyone is wondering, he is from Aurora, Illinois. The first time I read this, I thought he was from Denver, Colorado. The second time I thought he was from Warren, Michigan. Mondays suck.

Viewing this on my phone is weird. Instead of the comments getting more and more narrow to the right of the screen, they are getting more and more narrow to the left. One thing that hasn’t changed with the new site is that Maizen/Bluey is still an insufferable bore. Oh no, I made an ad hominem attack against someone who regularly attacks the program! Someone get a mod!

I have one son who is at his 8th grade end of school year dance right now. I am off to walk a friend’s dog in his place. The boy ‘earned’ $30 for 4 days of dog-walking of which wifey and I will have done >50%. Give him credit, though, he rescued the dog from a skunk yesterday. He took some incoming fire. We were able to get him cleaned up for the dance.

A couple decades ago I learned not to buy version X.0 of any software. Always wait for version X.1 that had most of the bugs worked out. There are 2 problems with that. 1) I need to read MGo now and 2) I don’t know if there will ever be an MGo 3.1. Typical of Brian to retreat to the virtual MGoBasement and not communicate with his customers.

Yes, but we should be planning better to deal with attrition wherever it comes from. Taking 1 or 2 guys in a class is roster mismanagement bordering on malpractice.

I'll say this for Pacino, he wins the greatest OVER-actor award hands down. His crowning achievement was the scene in the movie Heat where he said, "'Cause she got A GREAT ASSSS.... and YOU GOT YOUR HEAD ALL THE WAY UP IT."
Nobody beats that.

Actors had to actually act before 1990. Now it's all CGI, car chases and shoot outs. I will take pre-90 movies any day. I get Animal House, Caddyshack, Spinal Tap, the good Star Wars movies and so many others. You get Office Space (a classic) and some Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch (minus the Funky Bunch) movies. Now get off my lawn.
P.S. Your avatar was much better pre-1990 as Louie DePalma.

Between high school and college I worked the 7PM to 11:30PM shift at Meijer and spent the afternoons trying to get a tan while listening to Appetite for Destruction, over and over and over again. Enjoy your youth.

The interface on a computer is actually OK. The big problem I'm having is with the iPhone version. I have checked the blog less from my phone. I stopped using the work computer to check the blog because I don't want to get fired. Let's just say, I visit the blog A LOT.

Looks like I can upvote myself, but no one else.
I also notice there's no title field. That's an improvement. I wasted more time thinking of a title and in the end, I usually just put the first few words of my comment up there anyway.

I doubt a brand conscious organization like the NCAA would dilute their basketball "Final 4" by also applying it to football. I have seen mention of the final 4 poll for football, but most reserve "Final 4" for basketball.

|06/01/2018 - 1:13pm||Jordan||
Jordan wouldn't have been standing at half court.
The secret to LBJ playing so many minutes is that he takes a lot of plays off on offense.It's a good strategy because he is drawing the other team's best defender away from the basket. But still, I noticed several plays where he barely crossed half court.
And that was an obvious block. He was sliding into position and falling backwards before contact was made. I don't want to see any more soccerization (flopping) of basketball.
|06/01/2018 - 12:45am||Kevin Love||
Love is a 5 time all-star. You are under rating him. He is not a top 20 player now but I would not be surprised to see him make the HOF.

Will see your dong punch and raise you an eye gouge
|05/31/2018 - 10:01pm||The Cavs||
I think the Bronies are underrated. JR Smith is a former 6th man of the year and is 9th all time in playoff 3s made. George Hill was a solid starter for a good Pacers team. He just can't stay healthy. Korver is maybe the best 3 point shooter not playing for Golden State. Kevin Love was a consistent double-double guy and all-star for the T-Wolves. And Tristan is good enough to attract a Kardashian. But the media wants to sell you the LeBron as superhero carrying a bunch of scrubs storyline. I am not buying it.

7 year old ST3 cried at the end of that game.
Or the MSU game where Desmond got tackled in the end zone going for 2. I lost my shit for a good hour after that game. I've never felt worse after a loss.

The blog was offline (for me, at least) late last night. I was hoping they had pushed the button and I would wake up to the new and improved MGoUniverse. Nope. Just the same old same old (which is still pretty good.)

I encourage you to read Malcolm Gladwell's book Outliers. It was a real eye-opener for me. Dedication and hard work are only part of the equation.

Is it better to have length or lengthiness?
|05/24/2018 - 12:19pm||"...JBB, who could not pass protect in 2017..."||
That's your opinion, one not supported by Seth's re-watch of the OSU and Bowl Games. Wow, it seems JBB had the 3rd best P-Pro percentage. Huh. With Cole leaving, that means he's the 2nd highest returning pass-protector.
Ruiz was the worst, but that's fine for a true frosh. It's tough seeing that 93% from a 5th year senior.

The Nebraskaning is happening. Soon, we will all be children of the corn.

I liked the Dos Equis' ads when they featured the world's most interesting man. The new guy is just not that interesting. I have a friend who is more interesting than that guy. My friend recently reffed a soccer game with Alexi Lalas AND his brother.
|05/23/2018 - 4:08pm||REITs||
The more I hear about them, the more cautious I get. But I had to do something to get my wife off my back with the real estate thing.
|05/23/2018 - 3:57pm||Dividend yields||
I own shares in three REITs that all pay around 10% dividends. My wife wanted to invest in real estate. I'm not the type to own a rental property. But I figure this spreads our risk among many residential properties and three separate funds. I agree with MGrowOld though, the majority of my 401K is in an S&P500 index fund.
I bought some WWE stock about 7 years ago when I noticed they had a huge dividend payout, something like 11%. It appeared to be a scam for Vince McMahon to pay his family at a lower tax bracket, but that didn't last long. The stock is up 369% since I bought it though after gaining 14% last week (USA cable renewal) and another 15% this week (Fox picking up one of their shows.) There is a sucker born every minute, and that sucker grows up to be a pro wrestling fan. Event-driven live TV demands a premium.
I have also bought stock in a couple companies that my former colleagues went to work at (OLED) or started (IPHI.) They are up 500+% and 100+% in the decade+ that I've owned them. OLED is interesting because it has a UofM connection through Prof. Forrest, who co-founded the company. If I had followed my first boss to Universal Display, I would be fabulously wealthy now, but I'd also have to live in.... NEW JERSEY!
|05/23/2018 - 3:39pm||Milton||
This scene from Animal House flashes through my mind every time someone mentions Milton. And FWIW, I don't find Milton as boooring as Mrs. Milton did.
"I'm not joking! This is my job!" I love that line.
|05/23/2018 - 11:29am||Buick||
I thought they kept Buick because of Tiger Woods, but your explanation makes more sense.
After the Olds, my next car was a Pontiac, also now relegated to the dust bin of history. I think I'm safe with my current car, a Toyota Camry.
|05/23/2018 - 10:50am||Oldsmobile||
I had the poor man's Oldsmobile 98, an Oldsmobile 88. Black exterior with black interior. It felt like you were riding on the surface of the sun during the summer. One summer day the windshield got so hot the glue melted and the rear view mirror fell off. I felt like I was driving a car on TV.
I grew up in East Lansing where just about everyone I knew drove an Oldsmobile due to the factory in Lansing. Most of those were Cutlasses and 98s.
How they made the decision to kill Oldsmobile but keep Buick is a mystery to me. I never figured out what was wrong with driving "your father's Oldsmobile." That car was a battleship on wheels with room under the hood for a powerful V8 engine. I always feel like Jim Goose from the original Mad Max talking about the last of the great V8s when I think of my Olds.
The other car it reminded me of was the DeathMobile from Animal House.
