How addicted are you?
What's the first step? Admitting you have a problem? Can someone publish a how to not be so crazily addicted to Michigan football in twelve easy steps?
just accept the addiction. it's worked well for me and my family.
Sorry it was the tic
it's real bad
I haven't showered since RR was fired.
I now call Vodka Tonics F5's and my lady knows what Im talking about...sad but true.
You're slowly getting out of Bolivian. I'll help you a little, +1
If I didn't have that dumb error, I would totally +1 you and help the OoB (Out of Bolivian) fund.
I'm also not past the denial stage
There is no rehab or twelve-step program in the world that can cure sports and/or mgoblog addiction. You might as well just decide to live with it.
I'm going to finally go to work. This is so bad.
Try following this story 14 hours ahead of eastern time. I slept 3 hours last night.
And I haven't been more than ten steps away from my computer in over 60 hours. If it weren't for my at-home job, I would have been fired a long time ago.
I've been on here in the past week more than I have ever before combined. I'm also a frequent visitor to TigerDroppings to see what the word at LSU is. Don't know where else I can go to get information, but this is bad.
I still haven't blown a guy in exchange for 50 mgopoints so I'm guessing there is still hope. Brandon better make a decision fast though.
I have a feeling things are going to be slow until the coach is picked and or after Miles meets with Brandon...unless a new candidate is leaked out.
I just sat here and watched the Patrick Peterson / LSU news conference to see if there was anything noteworthy. I also participated in the livechat so that I could gauge LSU fans' reactions.
I have a meeting in an hour where I have to present ideas for improving our social media marketing plan.
Didn't watch, Peterson staying or leaving?
Announced he's headed to the NFL.
Media was respectful of keeping it focused on Peterson until a reporter asked him where he thought Miles was going to be coaching next year. He said he's not in a position to answer but hopes it's at LSU. It was the last question before they cut off the Q & A.
thanks for the info.
Forrester social technographics profiles are your friend wrt social marketing.
and I am addicted to coach crack!
So THAT'S what "CC" stands for!
I don't have a problem!
to the punch
If DB stretches this out too much longer I may be out of a job with my level of addiction.
My kids have taken a back seat to this. I don't even hear their requests anymore. And I'm not going to even talk about work. What's work? Plus, my husband - who is a football fan - thinks I'm crazy. My brother understands, though, because he went to Michigan, too, so he calls me regularly to see if I've heard anything. At least I have him for support.
is much better than my Tyrone Biggums.
Kudos to you, sir
I can quit whenever I want. If I wanted to. If I could. Dear Lord please help me.
Very locked into this site. Yet, I somehow manage to back out of threads once pix of cats and facepalms start appearing.
This whole thing should be exhibit A in how today's media is completely failing from a true journalistic perspective. But . . .
I CAN"T GET ENOUGH OF IT!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!! MORE RUMORS! MORE FLIGHT PATHS!!!
I enjoy such things.
This has been my lfe for the last week...thanks for reminding me
My wife just looks at me with disgust and says "oh you're on that Blog thing again".
I think she was happier when I wasted my time on internet porn instead of looking for updates on a coach selection. At least that I could shut off.....
Well, I got the shakes when Patterson signed an extension at TCU. That's probably bad, isn't it?
I cannot stop!
bad , bad, not functioning well . bad
Amy Winehouse and crack
facebook has felt a dropoff since the RR firing
The past few months on here have been like a really bad boozey bender. The kind where I'm crashing cars, throwing bricks through pre-schools, praying to the false porcelain god, waking up in a hospital bed with restraints on and hitting on women who are either A) old enough to be my mother, or B) as attractive as left over haggus. But I can't stop now. No way. No how.
I can't stop because when life is sweet on this board, man, life is sweet. 3 days of good news is worth sifting through all the filth. So until you see me on A&E pouring my heart out on a TV show, MGoBlog is my crutch. That's just the way it is.
I spend way too much time following this fiasco. I just want a coach that can win, control the pressers and send Drew Sharp, Rosendouche and Snyder to Bolivian.
I haven't slept well since thursday night. Thursday night all seemed well and JH was a strong lean. Since he accepted the SF job, I have been in semi-panic mode. LM is the best choice available. Hoke seems like a nice guy and probably is a good coach, ut I just can't see him commanding this big ship.
He's too small of a rudder for this boat.
Sign and introduce LM and recruit the hell out of the last two weeks.
On a scale of 1 to "Average Foaming at the Mouth Buckeye Fan", I currently reside at "Brett Favre on morphine." Another 2 days though and I'll likely just swallow my cellphone whole in an attempt to avoid the impending DOOOOOOOOOOOOOM
I was actually looking forward to work today, and then Atlanta Winter Storm 2011 happened and work shutdown. So here I am, waiting.
I'm addicted enough to know that this exact post was made less than a week ago.
That's a good thing though... I think this post should pop up from time to time so we can discuss the addiction. MGoBlogAnonymous.
I found my way past the work computer security program. My wife will be proud when I am unemployed but the first on the block with an answer to who our new coach is!

Syllabus week = mgoblog week
thinks I have lost my mind, but until I know who the coach is going to be I really can't think of anything else.
By noon I had cracked. I drove around all morning listening to Sirius sports channels and taking the LONG WAY between offices just so I wouldn't miss anything.
... I'm in the hospital now.

I came home to get away from all the distractions at school so I could write my dissertation which is due in a week... and all I'm doing is aimlessly refreshing mgoblog. Should probably get some more done if I want to sleep at any point this week...
Um...yeah, I just had to get a new keyboard because my F5 key stopped working.
I have been caught at work multiple times for being on mgoblog. Now I have the screen minimized to about a quarter of the screen. I also found this feature in my video card at work where I can press down on the scroll wheel and it automatically switches to another application. I have a whole system worked out which screen I use on my dual monitor depending on if my boss is in or not.
We must all be hitting F5 or all be on MGoBlog too much, considering the site is crashing half the time and its still hard to log in at times. Still nothing better than it though........I literally dream about it at night and wake up in the morning needing to see if I missed anything.
I've re-read that "Straight from the old coaching staff!" post about a dozen times in search of hidden clues. Then I re-read Brandon's blog post to reassure myself that the search is on the right track!
refused sex with a reasonably attractive female because I cant stop looking at the train wreck.
note: I considered calling said woman, smoking hot, but I knew no one would believe that. Pleeeze hire a coach soon, my willy hates me.
Too much. Can't stop. Don't care either.
All I know is when Michigan gets it new coach I'm "popping bottle in the ice....like a blizzard" whats the 12 step for that?
Edit: I am also a first year Psy.D. student, but we haven't covered 12 step programs yet. Also I am totally obsessed with Michigan football as well. It sounds to me that you are likely suffering from Obsessive-Compulsive disorder, Not to be confused with obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. Diagnostic criteria is as follows:
For compulsions i.e. repeated actions (often resulting from uncontrollable intrusive thoughts) such as constantly pressing the refresh button.
(1) recurrent and persistent thoughts, impulses, or images that are experienced, at some time during the disturbance, as intrusive and inappropriate and that cause marked anxiety or distress
(2) the thoughts, impulses, or images are not simply excessive worries about real-life problems
(3) the person attempts to ignore or suppress such thoughts, impulses, or images, or to neutralize them with some other thought or action
(4) the person recognizes that the obsessional thoughts, impulses, or images are a product of his or her own mind
if these are true to you, consult with a psychologist, I'll be ready in 4 years
