Internet trolls are the strangest people. I can’t imagine spending time doing what he does. My guess is that he is a teenager with nothing better to do, but man, while I did some dumb shit as a teen, trolling a website 24/7 wasn’t something I even considered.

This thread is a prime example of the need to be able to see who started the thread prior to clicking.

OT: Beaver Pelt Hats

I like them. I think they are stylish and warm in the winter. What are the thoughts of random, anonymous, message board people on them? Why do or don’t you like beaver pelt hats?

5 year old twins had Father’s Day picnic today at school in 100 degree weather. Went to a fav wing spot for dinner. Couple of Dales Pale Ales at dinner and now settling for an ice cold Miller Lite while they destroy the back yard. They are now creating “cars” to roll down a hill in the yard. Shaping up to be an emergency room type of night.

I’d pay $10 at least for decent App.

App

/thread

Ok I lied, 1 more. The ability to see the thread author on the main page. I don’t understand how this was left off in the first place, but it needs to come back. 

06/13/2018 - 12:19pm This times a million…

This times a million. Outside of no app, this is my biggest complaint. I just can’t even understand the thought of not including the name of the person that started the thread. It makes no sense at all. The only thing I came up with is that they removed it to increase clicks. Otherwise, there is no logical explanation. 

06/13/2018 - 12:13pm Old, only because I am…

Old, only because I am almost an exclusive mobile user and used the app. I hate using the mobile browser. I never thought I would say that I miss the old App, but here we are. 

I have viewed the site on desktop a couple of times since the transition and it seems fine, but I do not like the mobile version. 

06/13/2018 - 11:17am Agree. I think they will get…

Agree. I think they will get less views and clicks without an app. I am hopeful they change their minds and bring the app back. I despise using the browser on my phone, especially for a message board. No matter how “optimized” it is, an app looks and functions so much better.

06/12/2018 - 5:44pm I'd be willing to bet that…

I'd be willing to bet that on average, clicks will be down due to removing the App. I bet that decision wiped out several users and it will cause fewer visits/clicks overall. Although, the curious decision to not list the thread author has gained them a couple of clicks that I would have normally skipped, so there's that. 

06/10/2018 - 9:31pm I think I’ve read 2 fiction…

I think I’ve read 2 fiction books my entire life so I will throw out my recent non-fiction reads. 

The Penomenon by Rick Ankiel was absolutely terrific. If you are a baseball fan, you should check it out. Just Google Rick Ankiel playoff game and you don’t know his story and you will watch the beginning. 

Elon Musk by Ashlee Vance. Great insight into a pretty remarkable guy. 

Left of Boom. About a CIA case officer. Just a normal dude for the most part that took a job with the CIA. A bit self serving from the authors standpoint, but he provides some pretty cool stories about the inner workings of the CIA. 

Currently reading Shoe Dog by Phil Knight of Nike. Only a few chapters in but it’s pretty good so far. 

06/09/2018 - 5:11pm Me as well. The board is…

Me as well. The board is most of my MGoBlog experience and it is a pain to get to. I would also like to see the person who started the threads name on the main page. If I’m just skimming, I like to know if certain people post info. Overall, an app would solve most of my issues. I do think they will get far less clicks without an app. I have no idea if that matters to Brian and co. I know I will visit way less without seeing the app logo on my front page. I also think it all looks great on desktop, I just never view the site that way.

Agree. I would anticipate them seeing a decreased amount of traffic due to this. People have apps on the front page of their phone. Those get clicked on way more than using the mobile web browser and then typing in a web address. I would happily contribute toward the cost of developing and new app. 

06/06/2018 - 6:48pm My unwanted thoughts…

My unwanted thoughts/comments. 

I like Apps. I never use safari on my phone. All my favorite apps are on the front of my phone and I click them every day. I rarely use the mobile browser. Someone suggested a board only app and I would be all for that.

I hate not seeing the name of the thread author before having to click the then read. I want to know if certain people post something. ie. UMBig11 I also will ignore certain people that post stupid things with vague titles  

How do you “go back”? This could be user error, but after you post, how do you get back to the board? If I click back, it takes me to my message I just typed?? 

The size, it’s all too big on mobile. Like others have said, there is a lot of scrolling  .

These are just gripes I’ll get over soon. I think the new site looks great on desktop, which I rarely use. I would just like to see an app as that is what I use the most and think it is a better fit for viewing the board on mobile.

 

 

06/06/2018 - 12:47pm Agree completely. I rarely…

Agree completely. I rarely visit on a computer but checked it out to see how it looked. It looks terrific on my Mac but I’m  not really a fan of the mobile. I know I’ll get used to it and I know the site is free and adding an app would cost, but Apps are much better for mobile. 

06/06/2018 - 11:38am Yeah, I don’t care if there…

Yeah, I don’t care if there is an updoot for the OP but a downvote option is a must. 

06/06/2018 - 11:36am I assume you mean prior to…

I assume you mean prior to clicking on the thread. I’ve asked that as well. It would be nice to know who started the thread prior to clicking. 

06/06/2018 - 10:47am Why can’t we see who started…

Why can’t we see who started the thread? I like to avoid certain people and really want to see UMBig11 threads. 

06/06/2018 - 10:03am Is it possible to see who…

Is it possible to see who authored a thread before clicking on it? That would be really nice. 

06/06/2018 - 9:36am I changed my password and…

I changed my password and still couldn’t get in until this morning. I emailed Brian. Maybe he did some voodoo on my account as I was obviously able to get in this morning. 

06/06/2018 - 9:32am I wish I could see who…

I wish I could see who posted a topic on the board. Am I missing this somewhere. UMBig11 made a post and didn’t know until I clicked???

 

Everything looks great though. I do however prefer using an app as opposed to mobile browser. Hopefully it will come in the future. 

06/06/2018 - 9:27am I’m hoping for a future app…

I’m hoping for a future app. The mobile website seems to be fine, but I rarely ever use it on my phone. I had the app on the front of my phone and checked it multiple times a day. Im sure I will visit much less and would guess there are others that will do the same. I’m sure it is a cost that they deemed unnecessary at this point and I get that, but I bet not having an app will result in fewer visits and clicks. 

06/04/2018 - 11:40am ?

Will the app just stop working or will I be here by myself until I figure out there is a new app out there?

06/04/2018 - 9:56am Agree

Had he not spent the 30 minutes to help out a fellow coach and jump in the pool, they would have beat State. He needs to get his priorities in order or he should be gone.

I enjoy the fact that Jim Harbaugh is the head football coach at Michigan.

06/03/2018 - 10:12pm Ha

Yep, that and Harbaugh has to care about the OSU game more and fans need to root harder than they do normally. Wins will come after those things happen, but not until then.

06/03/2018 - 6:46pm .

This is so dumb it makes my brain hurt. Even if your statement is true, does it even matter? Jim Fucking Harbaugh is the coach. Do people really believe that he doesn’t put everything he has into every single game? Are there people out there that think he tries less hard against OSU? It’s fucking ridiculous to even consider. It’s like dumbasses around here that bring up a game in a few weeks and some idiot says, “one game at a time”. It makes zero difference. Harbaugh knows what the fuck he is doing and he doesn’t try less hard for any game you fucking dumbasses.

Props for Brandi Carlisle. She’s great.

Worst - The latest Twitter update that has ads every 3 tweets.

So long Twitter, it really wasn’t much fun while it lasted.

05/21/2018 - 8:50pm .

Just use the app like a normal human being. If I saw that ad on the app, the picture would be stretched and his butt wouldn’t look as firm.

05/21/2018 - 5:32pm Yes

Saw it when it came out but it was even better on the big screen before Deadpool. Looks great.

05/20/2018 - 9:15pm .

Nice. Last Action Hero is terrific. Haven’t thought about that in years.

05/17/2018 - 9:08pm .

These threads are the only reason I don’t want the site or app updated. The pictures of the clothes on the app are fantastic.

Also, most of the Nike stuff fits like shit.

05/16/2018 - 9:11pm Athletic

I just signed up after seeing that Bruce Feldman is going there. Got a year for $36 so I’ll give it a shot. I have no idea how they pay all of these guys, but they are amassing some serious talent.

05/15/2018 - 3:23pm Ah

Crappy touch interfaces. My wife has a 2016 XC90 and I almost crash every time I need to adjust anything. It has a giant (shitty) iPad like control center and nothing is easy to control. Also, I will never buy another Volvo if they don’t fix their climate control. I like it blow cold air at a low rate. In her car you have to adjust the temp or the fan will blow 100mph if you have it on low. It is enraging.

05/15/2018 - 8:27am Services

Sorry to hijack this a bit but I am also wondering what services people use? I am pretty terrible at finding music and listen to the same stuff over and over. I am deep in the Apple ecosystem so I bought a year of Apple Music. They recommend the same playlists every damn day. I keep trying to select different artists and say I “love” songs to build up my profile, but it is the same recommendations every day???

05/14/2018 - 6:23pm Interesting

As someone that is only a lifelong fan of the school and also never had a chance of either being admitted due to grades or being able to afford it anyway, it just doesn’t make financial sense to me to pay that much for school. I would love for one of my kids to be admitted and attend UM. It would make me beyond happy that they worked hard enough to be admitted. With that in mind, we would have to to have long conversations about the benefits of paying 3-4 times as much for UM vs an in state school. Maybe it would be worth it, but I’m not sure. Hopefully we get to talk about it in 10 years.

05/11/2018 - 8:28am .

Last day of a week at the beach for me. :(

please bang

05/10/2018 - 2:05pm Yep

Go to any autograph session for any pro or big time college athlete. It is full of these fucking losers. Most of them will have stacks of shit for them to sign while a 7 year old is waiting to meet their hero.

05/09/2018 - 8:09am .

While I agree with you, it will die out before they realize it. Look at baseball. Many stadiums sit half empty year round anyway, yet most people can’t afford to go let alone take kids. They could lower prices, bring kids back to the stadium and still make millions, but it will never happen. Like most things, they will suck every dollar out and just move on most likely. Baltimore is currently doing a promotion where kids go free for certain games which is a good start, but you know they will kill it immediately if they start winning.

05/08/2018 - 5:16pm ?

This can’t be serious

05/07/2018 - 8:57pm .

Others have mentioned this, but my fav part of this write up and others about him are the “sure those were routine throws, but he hit them all in stride” or whatever exact quote. For years, we have seen QB after QB miss a guy open on a downfield route. Stupid ESPN announcers would say, “he’s open, but just overthrown or whatever”. While it wouldn’t be a big deal to them, it would rip our hearts out because we consistently see those throws missed. Just hit an open guy. That’s all I fucking ask at this point. If he can hit the guys that are open and some of the ones that are sort of open but covered, it’s going to be a very welcome change to what we have seen aside from a random Iowa transfer.

05/07/2018 - 11:59am Yep

Basically did the impossible twice. Played a bit for the Royals.

05/07/2018 - 10:07am .

I am currently devouring The Phenomenon. It is about Rick Ankiel who was on the list of “going to be the best pitcher ever” as a prospect. For those that don’t know his story, he flew through the minors, had a great rookie season, but during a playoff game that year he came out for the 5th or 6th inning with a large lead and threw 5 or so wild pitches. Out of nowhere, he got “the yips” and never recovered.

It’s a terrific read (at least half way through). He also had a horrible childhood which I never knew about. He is really a remarkable guy.

05/04/2018 - 12:42pm .

Yep, everyone around here knows that you have to be at least a RS sophomore to be good. All good O linemen are the exception and need to be seniors.

05/04/2018 - 10:08am .

Need posbangs. Leaving for the beach tomorrow and one kid was projectile vomiting for 2 days this week and now the other said he didn’t feel good last night.....going to be a fun flight tomorrow.
