re: the mogrowold edited list of stuff

you forgot to mention maple bacon and chocolate chip cookies, the home made kind for both.  i think your list is finished now.

great story.  and others may forget this but i remember you sharing also about how your wife (possibly the greatest stick figure in history) was an incredible blessing to you during your recovery from cancer.

do you think someone was shocking her in order that her face and body would make those moves?  it looks like a silent scream for help....

i think you and chatster are my gif/pic heroes.  thank you.

remember too, the mods get zip/zero/nada for babysitting a bunch of knuckleheads day-in, day-out, 24/7 (or close to that).  guys like LSA has an actual job, a wife, kids, and at least one rainbow pony.  complain all you want but guys like that deserve your thanks, not condemnation because their volunteer work isn't up to your standards.  

i'm sure the bolivia bomb will be released before actual football starts.  mods are comin' and their bringing hell with them!

juvenile humor, as if emily litella were still on saturday night live [insert her pic here. curse you 3.0]

emily litella:  what's all this business about you poped in your pants?  that's disgusting and it shouldn't be in the news!

chevy chase: ah, no emily, that was 'the pope is in france', not 'poped in your pants'.

emily:  oh.  well why didn't you say so.  never mind.

to add to this, Greg only had 28 scholarship athletes on his side of the ball when he showed up.  the cupboard was bare.

why do the 2 grosse pointey types have the scariest avatars?  coincidence?  i think not.  it must be something in the single malt they mix with their oatmeal in the morning.

as it relates to hoke, your words would be my words.  would love to have the guy as a neighbor and friend but he wasn't the guy to be 'the guy' at a P5 school.

sorry cali.  if its any consolation, there won't be any attempted acting by sofia coppola

now jim, get hold of your enthusiasm....

08/11/2018 - 8:52pm i think brandon was a decent…

i think brandon was a decent hire, if that was all you/we/they knew at that time.  i disagree that he was anything other than a terrible AD as it played out. he alienated the fans, destroyed the warmth and tradition of game days with giant macaroni noodles, as an example, and if i understand correctly, grossly boosted the athletic departments expenses for little or no perceivable benefit.  and he also fired some fantastic folks who had such institutional knowledge and loyalty. i think he was darth vader as a personnel manager. 

08/11/2018 - 8:49pm not disagreeing, but the…

not disagreeing, but the call of the question was what did the hire look like at that time.  all of us can finger point in the interim, but back in 2011 when he was hired, were there any red flags you could point to? 

08/11/2018 - 8:38pm do you agree that brandon…

do you agree that brandon looked to be a good hire at that time?

thanks for the update on will h.  

08/11/2018 - 6:27pm thanks umbig, you da' man.

at a minimum that speaks to the exceptionally toxic atmosphere there.  anyone that would say that is either right (scary business) or wrong and bitter, which means its still probably not a great place.  and while we're at it, i always thought durkin's smile reminded me of the joker.  not a real smile.

and now they have placed the strength coach and two trainers on suspension.

it will have to be umbig's second of the night, as i would hope to buy the first one.

love klipshs.  we have them as our computer speakers and they rock.  when i was at michign, lo those many years ago, we had a pair of 6 foot tall klipsch horns that could light up a whole neighborhood.

08/10/2018 - 5:58am the high school season and…

the high school season and camps have started and it is so much fun.  up here the kids camped for 4 days in a cow pasture (yes, complete with cows who kept their distance) that had a true football field cut into it and marked.  they practiced 3x/day, ate, swam, bonded, and had a great time.  

love this time of year.  summer is still here.  kids getting geeked to play ball.  weather is perfect.  what a blessing.

(p.s. no point scrounging, since there's no points, so this is a pos-bang i can support)

you want mine?  its got a busted input and a busted base.  costs as much to fix it as it would to buy a new one, but you can have it if you want it. 

08/09/2018 - 9:25pm a buddy of mine has a TV…

a buddy of mine has a TV repair/antennae place and he has a used 50" LG that he'd let me have for $225.  he'd warranty it, too.  have been thinking of taking him up on that idea.

so how is the Roku mentioned when shopping for features? 

and what other features do you think might be important? 

08/09/2018 - 9:16pm you make a good point about…

you make a good point about features, and i would add that to my OP if the edit worked for that.  i should've asked what are the features that make sense to pursue/acquire. 

as to the size, i did in fact do the measurements already, figuring that the new TV's have tiny edges (or bezels for you fancy grammar types) and thats how we got from 42" to 50".  

08/09/2018 - 8:42pm does anyone know if beilein…

does anyone know if beilein had that fourth by-pass operation?  heard the first 3 were just warm up for the grand finale. 

08/09/2018 - 3:40pm sure.  we'd appreciate if…

sure.  we'd appreciate if you could fix/find/program 

1. easy way to embed pics

2. 'new' badge on new posts since your/our/anyone's last visit to a topic, along with the # of 'new' posts in any given topic being listed on the mgoboard main page (the one which lists the various threads and total replies to the threads)

those two would get a lot more positive comments about HUEL.  you need that after the drubbing you have taken (unknown how deserving) about this roll out.

have you tracked the 'growth' of some spartans?  remember anything about some of the outbursts that are characteristic of juice and/or HGH?  can you call to mind any spartan(s) who got shut down by the NFL b/c of juice?  ever wonder what happened at your last rose bowl appearance?  

to use one of mgrowold's favorite expressions, pepperidge farms remembers....and so do we.

if you check when i posted that Q vs. the number of responses at that time, you'll see only a handful were there, thus little context.  is my telling you that a 'life hack'?

regardless, you can consider me the forrest gump of mgoblog (without leg braces).

Thank you, and I'm enjoying reading the responses.

mine:  marry well.  most everything else will fall into place or won't matter nearly as much.

which team is son on? 

maybe meet at sledders if that is close to your work/route home.

i'll see that analogy and raise you one.  its more like mel brooks as moses in 'history of the world' when he comes down from sinai and busts one of the tablets, "the Lord Jehovah has given to you 15 commandments (drops one, it shatters) oy!....ten.  ten commandments for all to obey!"

whenever i'm in town i always look for that convertible miata. glad to meet at a local place, though with football basically starting this week for me and my 4 oldest sons, its going to be hard to find time many nights. lets plan on it one way or the other, even if its after the kids' season.

the comment on his player profile said he'd have to rely on technique b/c he graded out at only the 9% strength level with his peers.

you did a fine job with the 11W mob.  very measured responses.  and man, you could cut and paste some of their homer/attack responses right back to them.

satan called.  looks like that debt has come due.  

face it, deep down you ultimately don't care about integrity.

08/06/2018 - 5:17am let me clarify some issues…

let me clarify some issues about title IX:  the mandatory reporter's obligation is not contingent on who the victim is, only that the reporter had knowledge of an incident of sexual assault or DV.  they then have the duty to report the abuse, and at least in michigan, must file a written report in most cases no later than 72 hrs after acquiring the knowledge.   can be a criminal offense for a mandatory reporter to fail to report.  

so whether shelley thought the victim was the butcher, the baker or the candlestick maker matters not, only that she was informed of the abuse.  that triggers her reporting requirement. 

08/05/2018 - 11:25pm how do you expect anyone to…

how do you expect anyone to take you seriously on this or any issue when you have a foolish, sophomoric, misogynistic name, and you make desperate arguments against reason?   

and 'guilty' is a bit strong - he definitely lied, and lied 9x about an important topic, one that had been so important just two days before that he fired the abuser.  he has a history of bad actors in his program.  if you don't believe, see the post yesterday in the diaries by arb lover, the one about external data and discipline.  your program is dirty, very dirty, and sold its soul to the devil.  congrats on that deal with satan, in the long run it never works out.  satan always gets his price....

heywood, earlier this evening mabel had a great comment to you:  if you are so concerned about title IX and women's issues, maybe you could change your trash name.  any answer to that, or is your defense as contradictory as the name you use with it?
