06/15/2018 - 6:13pm I added my first ever avatar…

I added my first ever avatar when I had to do my initial MGB 3.0 login.  Trouble is, I was merely experimenting and chose a random GIF I had in my phone.  Now I want to change it and can’t figure out how.  Hopefully someone more savvy chimes in here. 

06/14/2018 - 2:01pm When I first got on the new…

When I first got on the new 3.0 site and had to reestablish myself, I was playing around and added a random avatar (a GIF that won’t play) from my phone’s camera roll, figuring I’d test-now-and-change-later. 

 

Now I can’t figure out how to change or delete the stupid avatar I chose.  Can anyone help a dummy out?

Obviously it’s because Shea is going to play MLB any day now. 

06/04/2018 - 11:05am Same here

After something like 10 laterals, just one more and Breaston walks into the end zone, and a crappy year feels at least a little better. But I guess that ending was befitting of that entire season. Sigh.

Don’t you have anything better to do, like maybe BLESS those rains? Um, your holiness.

Didn’t Air Force, yes Air Force, have more passing TDs than UM did last year? Pretty sure I heard/read that somewhere.

Heck, nobody involved with MSU even knows anything about needles at all. Nope, not a thing.

I’m a DPJ fan in general, but he did make me nervous on many occasions when receiving punts last year. Hopefully he’s improved a lot by the time UM goes to South Bend.

04/14/2018 - 2:32pm Crazy weekend.

I was there. That was some incredible snow, even for those of us who are/were accustomed to piles of it very winter.

04/13/2018 - 5:58am Truth

Totally agree with your editing comment. For example, every post I’ve ever made here has been pure gold, full of insight and wisdom. Except for the ones that have been viewed as stupid and got negged accordingly. Obviously the mods edited all of those, for some unknown reason.

04/11/2018 - 10:05pm Not sure if serious.

The post several above yours got it right. Lived in the area most of my life, and everyone pronounces it “ig-niss”.

OP: if you like burgers, go to Clyde’s in the Soo or St. Ignace, and get a Big C. Also in the Soo is Antlers restaurant, which has a huge burger called the Bigfoot or Sasquatch or something like that.

I’ve had the same problem when trying to stream BTN content. Thus, I’m only posting here so I can find this thread again quickly on Saturday. Good info, much appreciated.

Any dad with a son should listen to “Cat’s in the Cradle”, by Harry Chapin and heed the lyrics. I’m honestly glad they mentioned this, as I’ve thought the same thing for a long time.

Lifelong UM fan, dad is originally from Michigan and also a fan. Has a well equipped UM man cave.

Jimmy offered him in person, telling him it was a committable offer. Doubt he had to think about it much after that.

This is absolutely a big deal, regardless of the OL. At least I think it is. Dude is really good and brings an element to the offense that the other guys don’t.

03/17/2018 - 8:00am To clarify, I didn’t mean UVA

To clarify, I didn’t mean UVA was a corrupt, “pay for play” school. Apologies to UVA folks on the board if it looked that way.

Anyway, I’m just not at all surprised when the little guy beats the big guy in college basketball, especially this time of year.

03/17/2018 - 5:16am Not unexpected

I may be alone in my belief that this UMBC win wasn’t really that big of an upset. Of course there is the history and the impeccable track record of 1 vs 16, but I’ve thought for a while that it’s just a matter of time before a 16 beats a 1.

College basketball is a whole different game nowadays than it was maybe 20-25 years ago. Many of these “big” schools feature 1-2 year players who have their minds on the NBA, Smaller schools will often feature a veteran lineup with guys who are not only good players, but are really invested in these games, and play good team ball.

To me, there are no “upsets” anymore. Nobody should be at all surprised when lower seeds beat higher seeds, or “no-name U” beats “pay for play U”.

If Eve was willing to forsake the future of mankind for an apple, what would she do for a Klondike Bar?

03/14/2018 - 11:18am He was more than just a “mean

He was more than just a “mean drunk” here. Dude was barefoot (bloodfoot?) in the snow with no cold weather clothing on. That does sound like more than booze, but whatever the case may be, he definitely needs to get his shit together. When drinking isn’t fun anymore, and it costs you friends, jobs, etc., it’s time to quit and/or seek help.

FauxMo beat me to it. Damn you, clown!

02/23/2018 - 11:12am I’m confused.

So we’re supposed to feel sorry for insurance salesmen? Like ever?

02/21/2018 - 8:02pm I’m old

Started with the Atari 2600
Moved up to the 5200
Eventually got a Commodore 64
Now have a PC

Obviously the depth, story, and graphic quality of modern games (Witcher, DA series, etc) are much greater than, say, Pitfall on the 2600, but that doesn’t always make them “better” when it comes to how fond one’s memories of playing are.

The most fun I had was playing Ultima IV on C64 for hours on end with a good friend, and losing ourselves in that strange and foreign land called Britannia. Took a few years to finally beat the game, but we did it.

I am looking forward to someone making a Mario joke in response to your post.

You’re aware that ignoring/hiding this issue and hoping it goes away is a major part of the problem, no? And this isn’t just an MSU problem; this is a societal problem. By keeping it in the news, on blogs, etc. it’ll hopefully empower more victims, across the nation, to come forward.

I took the time to read the comments section and was impressed by the insight the 11W members displayed. Then again, maybe the cretins just stay away, knowing better than to spoil one of Ramzy’s excellent articles.

Tip of the hat to Ramzy and 11W here.

But seriously,

In the weeds?

But seriously, it is truly amazing how these “leaders” have vanished. This tells me that they knew all along about Nassar and realize that they can’t honestly come out and really say anything to the contrary now that the whistle has been blown. So they hide.

If I was affiliated with MSU in any way, I’d do what I could to have every one of these turds flushed. Makes me wonder how many people at MSU knew and thus can’t really go after their colleagues, as they themselves would be exposed.
