He already did though. Way before 24 hours ago.

02/13/2019 - 6:05pm Maybe when he put his…

Maybe when he put his fingers up it looked like a middle finger, or maybe the ref was British and the two finger gesture is the same as the finger. Otherwise fuck that guy.

02/13/2019 - 2:25pm Maybe they put everyone bad…

Maybe they put everyone bad in this game figuring they couldn't possibly screw it up badly enough to have the 1st place team lose to the 14th place team? Then the refs said, "Challenge accepted."

02/12/2019 - 10:33pm They're getting so lucky in…

They're getting so lucky in every facet of the game. Fuck this sport.

Beilein is under the stands pulling a Snape, muttering incantations.

02/09/2019 - 7:10pm I dunno man, I would say it…

I dunno man, I would say it may have happened here. I didn't see the fouls away from the ball but there were at least 2 that seemed really cheap and essentially made the foul counts even.

02/09/2019 - 4:46pm The postgame posts and…

The postgame posts and threads go to show what a difference winning makes; even though we won I'm still a bit surprised nobody has brought up the refs (save for Seth's cheeky comment at the bottom of the Muppets post). I dunno how I feel in hindsight but there was some definite garbage today. So glad they made Davison upset on that flop AND got him for a flagrant; honestly makes up for the rest, IMO.

02/09/2019 - 1:52pm Good point, I like it…

Good point, I like it. Beilein would never.

02/09/2019 - 1:51pm Can they please miss? Can we…

Can they please miss? Can we please not?

02/09/2019 - 1:47pm Oh my god this is the…

Oh my god this is the luckiest team of all goddamn time. I'm so furious at the last several minutes. If Charles were shooting his normal percentage we would be down 10 and we should be UP by 10.

02/09/2019 - 1:23pm Why are we playing this…

Why are we playing this rushed soloball crap when we need to pull away.

02/09/2019 - 1:18pm Justice for Davison? I am…

Justice for Davison? I am actually shocked.

02/09/2019 - 12:53pm Is clutching one's purse an…

Is clutching one's purse an expression in basketball or just spontaneous?

02/09/2019 - 12:32pm These refs are absolute…

These refs are absolute straight up trash on fire.

02/09/2019 - 1:30am As always, FYS

As always, FYS

02/08/2019 - 5:26pm Fields' family was so…

Fields' family was so horrified that they enrolled his sister at the school just to keep an eye on the guy that yelled the racial slur.

02/08/2019 - 5:23pm I'm sure either not a peep…

I'm sure either not a peep will come of it or he'll be suspended for a game against Penn State. Or their next one, MSU, because that's just our luck that they'd take a while to "review it."

02/02/2019 - 2:31am Not enough butthurt about…

Not enough butthurt about refs in the content and I want some! :)

02/01/2019 - 7:58pm Metellus is pretty good and…

Metellus is pretty good and his issue is athleticism. Matthews on the other hand is a very good athlete but inconsistent. They're pretty much opposites my dude.

02/01/2019 - 7:55pm You need to take a timeout…

You need to take a timeout and think about what you just said.

02/01/2019 - 7:39pm This is like the reverse of…

This is like the reverse of the Wisconsin game. They just have to drive to draw a foul.

01/29/2019 - 1:01am No reason he still couldn't.

No reason he still couldn't.

01/26/2019 - 3:02pm When elite players choose…

When elite players choose college, colleges will choose to pay elite players. That wouldn't solve a whole lot.

01/24/2019 - 6:30pm Before anyone else goes for…

Before anyone else goes for it, this one's all me: Steve Holtz!

01/24/2019 - 3:42pm Meaning he sits with…

Meaning he sits with Wisconsin? Wtf, source?

01/24/2019 - 3:36pm I didn't even know he had a…

I didn't even know he had a football coach brother. How have I never heard of him?

01/22/2019 - 8:23am I did, and enjoyed it!

I did, and enjoyed it!

01/19/2019 - 1:21pm Dakich absolutely crying…

Dakich absolutely crying about the call against Wisconsin, hmm let's put it up on the Bullshit Board and the tally will be about 1 to 1000

01/17/2019 - 1:25pm John, you're missing the…

John, you're missing the entire point. You could have tore down and rebuilt the entire goddamn university with your bare hands, you could have been singlehandedly responsible for making such radical changes that transformed MSU into a beacon of change for all schools, you could even have tried to look like you gave a shit.

None of that would matter if you act as you did. You've listed your accomplishments at MSU but you haven't listed the times you shat on rape survivors repeatedly. The latter is why you were fired, not the failure to achieve the former. (Note: the accomplishments themselves are questionable; I'm just assuming for the sake of argument that he actually did accomplish enough positive change to fill 10-ish pages).

John, you were a perfect fit for MSU. That's precisely why you were a horrible fit to fix MSU.

01/10/2019 - 4:09pm Yeah, I mean I'm not black…

Yeah, I mean I'm not black but it seems like many black players in the south have probably faced at least one racist incident in their time at school right? Hell, Devin Gardner said he faced several at our own school and in this day and age. If Fields's waiver goes through then couldn't many black players point to at least one racial incident and claim immediate eligibility?

01/07/2019 - 2:39pm I'm just using the SEC…

I'm just using the SEC naming convention, sir. Not my fault those are his initials.

01/07/2019 - 2:34pm Oh god

Oh god

Bizarro world: upvotes are downvotes and downvotes are upvotes

01/07/2019 - 1:50pm How did he ever fuck us over…

How did he ever fuck us over before?

01/06/2019 - 6:27pm Apparently not

Apparently not

Maybe they'll review it for 3 minutes

Just realized there's only 4 min left and we're up 12, so why am I so stressed haha

What's with this ref crew and calling fouls out of position

01/06/2019 - 6:12pm He tries so hard to defend…

He tries so hard to defend the awful calls against us.

01/06/2019 - 6:10pm Oh, now I remember what I…

Oh, now I remember what I hate about basketball.

01/06/2019 - 5:58pm Refs: Don't you know it's…

Refs: Don't you know it's supposed to be hard to play on the road in the big ten?

Beilein: WE'RE AT HOME!

12/26/2018 - 5:23pm My name: my name (stupid I…

My name: my name (stupid I know but I didn't think when I signed up for mgoblog, around 10 years ago, that I was making a username I'd use for life. Oops.)

My avatar: Well, when enough people reply "Steve Holt!" anyway...

12/21/2018 - 10:16pm That's the IRS's problem,…

That's the IRS's problem, not the NCAA's. That's all the more reason to bring it above the table, if they care about that.

12/15/2018 - 3:03pm My first thought was "is the…

My first thought was "is the title supposed to say Ike Danielson?" I guess when your last name is a first name and your first name is a last name, you must get a lot of that.

12/12/2018 - 3:15pm Unless they changed how…

Unless they changed how Crystal Balls work, you don't lose points for switching to a flip after someone commits (and don't gain/keep points for keeping your pick on the eventual school). In other words there's no point penalty for flipping a crystal ball and it makes sense if your goal is points (which it shouldn't be but for some people it is a goal). If that's changed then it may be significant, otherwise it's nothing.

12/12/2018 - 2:46pm Unless he pled guilty, I…

Unless he pled guilty, I actually would hope we wait to know for sure (on the other hand he could be let back on if it turned out to be untrue). It's a fine line because I also don't think you can wait for the legal process and give second and third chances based on sentences altered by plea deals, or else you're Dantonio before you know it. But we should all remember that Jourdan Lewis was accused of domestic violence as well, and our reaction was markedly different. That also took a while to get resolved in court.

12/06/2018 - 1:32am To be fair your colleague…

To be fair your colleague should have acted like he'd been there before. You're thinking anout be on Carter's team and therefore his level but you ask for an autograph like a fan. Kinda weird. But yeah he could just sign it or say no thanks.

12/06/2018 - 1:15am In that case you would never…

In that case you would never get to step two because every team plays their whole division ergo the head to head would resolve all ties.

12/06/2018 - 1:00am Should've wore scarlet…

Should've wore scarlet gloves.

12/06/2018 - 12:52am Yeah he's absolutely not…

Yeah he's absolutely not considering the downsides and I presume he's being a little facetious. But I guess it could work if you also brought back the two-line pass rule which would be dumber and less accessible to new/casual fans. If you eliminate offsides then the team with the fastest skater/finisher wins, provided they have decent passers to set him up.

Come to think of it maybe I do wish that were the case, since when I played hockey my entire skillset was based on being faster than everyone (otherwise was too skinny/weak and couldn't really shoot at all). I would be a total star in that case...

Also I don't even know what Brian's problem is with offsides. Reviewing for it after goals is dumb but that's a different rule. Having random stoppages can suck for flow of the game but that's how the sport works and it only penalizes the offending team and the short-attention-span fan. Maybe make a rule that you can't have TV timeouts triggered by offsides.
