You can go hike at John Bryan state park. I like going there, although I admit that I only would go in the spring to look at wildflowers, so I don't know what it's like in the fall. They have some nice ladyslipper orchids (Cypripedium) there that bloom in the spring. But, jeah, definitely stop by Young's.

Mods have a nuke button...

You want to see real bitching? Nuke someone's post. Nothing pisses off people more than nuking a post they have literally spent minutes putting together. And if the MODs nuke something they felt should not have been nuked, then the site owners get emailed and we have to have discussions about what was nuked and why...even if it was justified. It can be a real pain in the ass, which is why some things stay that I personally should be nuked. It's an art, not a science.

I would also not tolerate some of the trolls so much, either. But it can be difficult to tell who actually wants to defend someone, and who is just trying to stir up shit for their own sick amusement. For instance, I can see some people actually wanting to defend Harbaugh or Peppers (a la the Peppers thread) and actually get mad that others are insulting them. But can I actually believe that there are people that would run a cyclist off the road or promote hitting cyclists to teach them a lesson (a la the Schiano thread)? I can't believe someone would be so evil. So, do we nuke those threads? Or just dumb comments? Or do we let the commentariat DV idiots them into oblivion, even though leaving their comments brings about 40 times the amount of arguing? My solution is to be respectful to others and not be a [Michigan Man]. And if some people did not make a new thread for every comment or thought they had, then this would clean up most issues.

[Ramzy, feel free to nuke these comments this wall of text to prevent me from taking over your AMA. I won't be hurt or offended in the least...well, maybe just a little.]

I'm not Ramzy, but I can help answer this.

The answer is not enough bourbon. When I have been around Ramzy, there was a situational bourbon. Without that, my brain goes haywire.

Plus, Peppers. Jabril Peppers. Peppers hit the site like a ton of Harbaugh. That would drive any man insane. I have not seen so much unnecessary commentary on the site since the days of Mecole Hardman. Plus the crazy crap about Schiano and bicycles. That thread was straight Mos Eisley Cantina. 

Comment 23 Sep 2016

Or, maybe he's a UM spy sent to look at our recruiting board when everyone else is on the road.

Are you saying that Schiano wasn't on the road? Did he hit the cyclist on the sidewalk? Plot twist! That would blow some people's minds.

Weird Al...I once saw him play the Newport Music Hall in the mid-1990s...

Ha, I was there as well. Don't you remember seeing me? I only have...nevermind...that's too many 'Weird Al' albums to admit.

We bought tix for the adults that are assigned. But we also bought two general admission tix for the non-adults with the plan to sit in the end zone or an area where the kids can "relax". This was all on suggestion of my buddy that has gone to the brew fest for a few years, and goes to a few games a year with his family.

Comment 21 Sep 2016

The four of us are going to the UCDavis game this weekend. There is a brew fest (at the stadium) that leads into game time, so we are good to go. Tix are a little cheaper than Buckeye games, too. All are welcome.

Comment 20 Sep 2016

Are you able to answer some questions about Jabril Peppers? I am really curious about this dude. I need MOAR coverage!

But seriously, my real question is:

How do you feel about individuals with a surname which is a fruit masquerading as a vegetable?

Comment 20 Sep 2016

He is starting to look more and more like Charlie Weis...and that is good for nobody.

Comment 20 Sep 2016

Then he probably would have been on offense and scored a TD...or maybe he would have replaced Mayfield and thrown a better ball. There is just nothing that this Peppers fella can't do. We certainly know he's great at catching stuff.
