Thanks for the insight. Cool.

You're 100% sure that before today there was zero chance he could have a shot at coming back?

02/07/2019 - 11:33pm He officially posted that he…

He officially posted that he was transferring back in December? Do you have a link?

My read is that he was holding out hope that he could get back onto the team, but with today's ruling it became clear that wasn't an option, so he announced officially on his own.

Cool avatar BTW. Cumong man.

RIP. Lost a great man and heck of a great twitter follow.

Best quote I've seen from around the time they expanded the character count was something along the line of: "99% of you don't even deserve 140 characters"

Understood the platform more than most young folks.

Update - found old posts indicating he was dismissed/booted... this doesn’t sound like that. But either way, I suppose it is now official. 

Mods - feel free to edit or delete the OP.

Something is up - there was a post of a "Iggy Pick & Pop" (or something along those lines) article on the Mgo-Twitter Feed this morning with a link that takes you to the "access denied" page and hasn't yet shown up on the homepage.

I'm sure Brian and Seth are working on it...

Weird look for Long... glad he didn't wind up as UM's AD...

Garbage product, garbage ratings.

What a bummer. I had high hopes coming into this season... hopefully they'll get things turned around soon.

01/01/2019 - 11:27pm There is beauty to a simple…

There is beauty to a simple Old Fashioned, all ingredients to the individual's taste, stirred together first, then with ice or over a large cube.

Bourbon - has to be from Kentucky. Otherwise, I'm not that picky - even Jim Beam can make a solid drink, but Buffalo Trace is generally an excellent value and Bookers or Bakers if you want to make it special.

Bitters - I like a good amount. Sometimes depends on the bottle how much comes out per "dash" so have to eyeball it but at least a solid 5 drops. Angostura is classic but there are so many out there and "old fashioned" bitters do tend to have a different type of spice flavor to them. Suit yourself.

Sweetener - I prefer a bit of agave since it is just easy to mix in, but sugar works too if you're willing to stir a bit more - superfine is easier, just make sure to mix before adding any ice.

Optional Fruit - Bit of orange peel pinched to get a bit of the oil to top the drink and/or a luxardo cherry (pull back on agave if adding). Personally not a big fan of an orange wedge or topping with soda.

And for a delicious mint julep, just take your bourbon, muddle with some mint and sugar, top with soda and crushed ice. Boom.

Something tells me this was part of the joke from the OP....

Woo! About time to take a break. Personally very ready for it.

We could use that jersey as an auction item at the UM Club of Greater Chicago Go Blue Gala this winter - all proceeds go toward scholarships for area students if that's the type of cause you're looking for!

Nice - welcome to the fold, Trevor!!

12/06/2018 - 10:26pm Yes, though it is easier…

Yes, though it is easier later in the season when more games are on TV or outcomes seem Moreno critical, and probably more difficult when basketball is better in general just due to time / mental capacity available. I got a BTN+ subscription specifically for hockey but don’t use it as much as I thought I would mostly since the quality is unreliable.

I was a season ticket holder in school and happened to have front row seats / man the cowbell sometimes so probably not the norm. 

12/06/2018 - 10:35am This would be fun but…

This would be fun but unfortunately the SEC will never go for it.

Heard an OSU fan argue the other day that adding an extra conference game hurts the B1G because it adds 7 extra losses to the conference vs. creampuffs. (He also claimed that their 9th conference games last year and this year were Iowa and Purdue respectively...... cumong man.)

If everyone did it, that would be great - and I'm supportive of ANYTHING that takes the game off of the Saturday after Thanksgiving since the effect of that timing mostly just hurts our students' ability to be there to support the team & encourages OSU fan infiltration.

Why would you just copy exactly what Dakich said and make it an OP without even mentioning where it came from?

Most ironic bit is that I saw an ad inserted in-line into your comment here.

Good analysis - thanks for taking the time to compile these numbers as I had been wondering just how stark the difference would be.

Yardage would also be an interesting indicator as you mentioned - particularly for the 3rd quarter...

There's also 50/50 in Wicker Park - pretty cool spot that just became an official sponsor bar this year.

Not a fan of Duffy's as they use M marks and pretend to be an official sponsor bar but refuse to donate to the scholarship fund like Diag, Rockit, 50/50, West End and Celtic Crown do.

Tennessee... what a joke these days. And they're not coming back anytime soon.

Best of luck to him personally if that's where he ends up, but Tennessee can keep crapping it up forever as a team.

All the best to Drew. Wish we had gotten to see him contribute but hopefully he finds success wherever he lands.

This was a great read - thanks much for pulling it together! 

Even if these teams aren't likely to make much noise this year, it is good to have a solid take on what is going on, state of the respective programs, etc. heading into the year.

Hard to believe that bball season is just around the corner, but I suppose both hockey and bball sneak up on me every year due to the amount of attention on football in the fall.

DId anyone else just hear the USF / Tulsa announcer say that Michigan is getting Tarik Black back? Does he know something the rest of the world doesn’t?

Yess!! So glad MGoBBQ is back!

Can't even overstate how happy I was when I refreshed the page and saw this at the top.

Sounds like I'll be making tacos this weekend...

09/25/2018 - 9:33am That's a fair interpretation…

That's a fair interpretation, but they can still point to an alum who is one of the best players in the NBA.

Of course that's going to appeal to a HS kid more than most schools - even if M is sending lots of players recently, we have no examples of that caliber, maybe Chris Webber if you really want to stretch, and he was in and out of college well before these kids were born.

09/24/2018 - 12:34pm Feel bad for the kid. Could…

Feel bad for the kid. Sounds like something he can live with, and at least it was diagnosed before something worse happened.

09/24/2018 - 12:05pm I would also recommend…

I would also recommend removing the "$" and "(lol)" from the dropdown driving to support. If someone is interested in supporting, I would guess that the sarcastic tone there probably isn't the most helpful.

I'd also love if the Amazon referral link were back on the homepage to avoid the extra scrolling around and clicks but know that it must be a low-priority revenue stream. I try to use it whenever I remember but was definitely more religious when it was right on the homepage. Maybe put it next to / under Beveled Guilt?

09/24/2018 - 9:59am I also wonder if this is a…

I also wonder if this is a google issue with what is being served on the site. Complaints about the types of ads that we're getting are tiring as I know there is a methodology to it, but some of the themes seem downright ridiculous and everyone seems to be having similar issues (and I don't have the same problems on other sites).

Beyond that, I'm seeing the same ads literally hundreds of times - even if I click them and tell AdChoices not to show me the ad again - which, working in marketing, I know for sure is a worst practice for an advertiser...

No way!! Woo!!!

SMU isn't too far behind Troy in some of the advanced stats rankings... and Troy didn't have much trouble beating Nebraska at home.

Nebraska going on the road regardless of the QB does not seem like it will end well for them.

Definitely looks like it was cropped from another picture / headshot where he was wearing a tie rather than a polo...

09/13/2018 - 10:58am Correct

Correct, but you can obviously just ride the L, Metra or Uber up there as well and just get the base tickets vs. paying the $30 transportation premium.

09/13/2018 - 10:48am The UM Club of Chicago is…

Sad that the YT pop-ups don't work anymore on the main charting :(

Also, on the below play (copy/pasted the charting as I didn't have a better way to grab), looked to me like Long got shoved back by the WR as he made his cut in, not necessarily that he was overplaying the fade.

Maybe he was a bit off balance but I'm not sure what else he could really do about it. Even if he's trying to stop there he's still getting shoved and would be tough to cover. Know they can't call OPI because there's hand fighting from both sides but hate to see him get the -2 for that.

Someone correct me if I'm seeing it wrong.

O 37 3 5 Shotgun 3-wide 3-3-5 Nickel split Press two high Pass 6 Dig Long 13

Long(-2, cover -2) gets dusted here as he way overplays a potential fade and is nowhere in the area code when it turns into an in route. Winovich(+2, pressure +2) around at eight to hit just after the throw.

I think a statistician would tell you that it isn't a significant enough sample set to draw any definitive conclusions.

This is actually what I thought the post was going to be about when I first saw it.

Hopefully the coaches have an answer!

I'm in favor. Reflects how we're all feeling right now. 

Let's turn it into something more confident in the coming weeks!
