Unfortunately for me, I have only known MGoBlog since roughly 2008ish. I've often wondered how fun it would be to have been involved with the blog during truly awesome times.
Actually, i don't even know how far back this blog goes. I've heard references from at least as far back as 2004, so i know it was up and kickin' for the 2006 season.
Assuming going into THE GAME in '06 11-0 was a very high point for this blog (i'd have to assume the greatest ever???), and that the last 2+ years have given us all plenty of low points...
What actually generates more traffic to MGoBlog? INDESCRIBABLE BLISS or INFINITE PAIN??
At first thought i assume BLISS, but then i think of some of the meltdowns i've witnessed (and been a part of)during PAIN lately and man, i'd like to see some stats for the Turner and Twolf fiascos. Basically, does the blog "blow up" more from National Championship-type seasons featuring epic matchups, or, well, 08-09?
I'm not sure if some sort of stats exist for this. Also I'm guessing there's no way you can quantify it because inevitably, good or bad, the blog has certainly grown with time, and continues to grow daily i would think.
Maybe this would be some kind of internet/blog/mob mentality psychological study or something.
For those of you who were here before me, I can only imagine the absolute highs of The New Math; and going into OSU week in '06. I most likely can't even imagine the blog during news of Bo's death and the emotional outpouring that must have taken place. The loss to OSU, and then the next 3 years up til now.
Well, despite my appreciation for the cathartic healing MGoBlog has offered me during the last 2 years of PAIN, I can't wait for BLISS on these here boards so I can experience it first hand for myself. September 4th is so close, yet so far away! Tic, toc, tic, toc...
For those of you thinking... who cares?!?!? Well, i totally don't blame you... I've wondered since the Turner-Gate fiasco went down, and wanted to post it before the season starts and less OT type posts are allowed. Also, as hard as i try, i just can't find a unique way to start another Tate/Denard/Devin, SwitchThisPlayerToDB, or OHMYGODTHESEASONSTARTSSOONIAMSOFREAKINJACKED thread, though i love participating in all of them!
Thanks for any info you have on site statistics and web traffic as affiliated to good times/bad times, and also thanks to anyone who wants to share "favorite" times throughout the history of the most awesome blog we are all so blissfully addicted to.
