A gentle reminder that what you say on the internet will be used against you (and for massive LULZ). Luckily, Cook took it easy on the commentariat* this week because there were metric tons of gold if he wanted to use them.

* Enter my standard rant about how he has MGoBlog locked down tighter than Lubyanka (or Evin, whatever you prefer), but whatevs, it's a funny feature.

Atleast it was a gray box without suspensions.

Word.

 

The gray box did scare me at first though.

I half expected to see "Ohio State Freshman QB Braxton Miller aquired 5 police stars in Columbus during a real life game of Grand Theft Auto. Miller was spotted on High Street walking in the middle of the road with an M16 shooting into buildings and large groups of people who were booing him"

 

Obviously that wouldn't happen though. Once he got that oh so hard to obtain fifth star, Jim Bollman would have made him look like he only had 1....

Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would more obvious.

For the sake of my employment I ask that we use the Grey Box sparingly. I almost struck my computer screen just as it appeared. I see grey box's in my sleep and stumble at every corner as I run for my life.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Yeah, damn you using the gray box. I agree this was a front page worthy promotion, cuz it was funny and pertains to OSU and 11W (unlike, say Rachel Uchitel getting married, just off the top of my head), but gray (or is it grey) boxes, scare the shit out of me.

Use a scarlet box instead. It's much cheerier and can brighten even the most dire suspension news.

I wish Brian would write more like a regular writer and less like blog-guy.  Sometimes all of the inside jokes make my head hurt.  If you have ever heard Brian on the radio, he's nothing like a hippie blog-guy.  He talks about college football like it was particle physics.  In fact, he talks about it like best prof you ever had in particle physics, who made otherwise-incomprehensible stuff fun and interesting.

Oh, and this:  If you click on the screen-cap of the black-shirted Nebraska fans in Camp Randall, it expands the picture.  Really excellent.  I recommend it.  I am hoping that all seven of those guys can repeat that performance this Saturday for you guys.

Sorry, guys. Never in a millioin years did we think the gray box would end up being a scary device. We promise you that in normal times, it won't have this effect.

I recommend color coding the box. The gray box is used for both good and bad (mostly bad) news. Whatever the case, my nuts usually shrivel a bit once I see the box, as if I were preparing for a swift kick to the groin. Use black or red for bad news so that we don't have to actually process what we're reading to determine how bad the news will be. Go ahead and keep gray for any other news, but I would recommend changing that as well because there is still going to be the panicked reaction to seeing anything gray.
