10/27/2018 - 11:44pm #1 truly long form history…

#1 truly long form history podcast has to be The British History Podcast. For one 18.5 hour trip, Dan Carlin's 5 part series on WW1 will get you through it, and is the best short series of podcasts I've ever encountered.


Audiobooks is a little harder. Audible has a massive library and you will get 1 free book a month, so you will get more mileage from looking for a book you've wanted to read and listening to that.

03/03/2018 - 5:40pm It does kind of sound like that here...

It probably wasn't "Wagner" they were chanting here because he was taking FTs so it wasn't Michigan fans chanting. Can't say for sure though.

Sam gave a gut feeling on drevno this morning; he gone

02/02/2018 - 10:58pm Ypsi beer fest

is fantastic. Far too many beers to try, and enough tokens to get absolutely slobbered, especially if you wait to put in a token until the beer vendors ask for one.

11/27/2017 - 6:31pm I told off a couple people in

I told off a couple people in the student section for yelling messed up shit. By the end of the game I was angrier at some of our students than the four girls from Ohio State behind me who screamed for the whole game (other than the first quarter, naturally).

11/07/2017 - 1:55pm slight nitpick

Undefeated is a crap metric in week 10 for a team with a crap SOS. It is not a crap metric for a power 5 conference champion.

09/03/2017 - 12:39pm Even with the ball spinning

Even with the ball spinning bullshit, perry looked like our best receiver out there, so not too surprising to me we didn't see martin. I'm still expecting him to see significant garbage time minutes the next two games.

09/02/2017 - 1:03pm I would tend to agree

Most coaches (read: men not named Harbaugh) can't walk into a dumpster fire and turn it into a top 25 squad, and we haven't seen Herman do it at this level yet. Being preseason #23 is purely the hype machine.

09/02/2017 - 12:44pm Maryland's Defense

is looking real as fuck so far. Might just be this year's MSU/ND farce though.

09/01/2017 - 1:03pm if I could have just one wish

it'd be that you are wrong on your last prediction

08/31/2017 - 8:48pm With how often Barrett has

With how often Barrett has been going to Dobbins, he might have legitimately earned the starter spot, even to the point of becoming the comfort target.

Go Blue, baby!

08/25/2017 - 8:26am that

is one spicy take

08/24/2017 - 11:41am The ad bubble is what made it free

The (bursting) ad bubble. I see the future of good content as being split between more of the local sponsorships we see on sites like mgoblog, and very cheap paid memberships to defeat the click-count rat race everyone else is having to take part in to keep up ad revenues. I'm fine with contributing to the livelihood of people providing conent I enjoy to support a sustainable reporting ecosystem.

08/24/2017 - 11:38am Any time someone new joins their team

you can get it for 30% off, and there are links floating for up to 50% off sometimes. I pay less than 3$ a month to have a source of content that is always quality, which to me is well worth it.

08/24/2017 - 9:19am I subscribe

You get access to all of their content for just the one subscription price. They have the best content of the style that we always seem to pine for more of, in depth writing and no click bait or ads or videos. I would recommend that everyone here subscribe so they can keep pulling in more top tier writing talent and improve the quantity of an already quality product.

08/21/2017 - 11:25am 150 episodes in and just got the paid subscription

BHP cannot be beat. I owe you one for mentioning them a few months ago in a random post, would never have found them otherwise.

08/17/2017 - 10:09am If I hear

'corps' pronounced 'corpse' one more time... this guy is killing me. Otherwise good content, slightly lacking production value.

08/12/2017 - 4:25pm For me, 10GB is what i individually use for a month..

However, given your current usage habits, if you take the approach of continuing current internet use habits and slowly racheting up use until you get to within a comfortable range of the 10GB target, you should be just fine.

08/08/2017 - 5:04pm Did you really read the article?

He never complained about his lot - he said the system is broken because kids are getting pushed through classes and admission standards, given a sham education and often as not no degree, and committing years of their life to a game. A game that makes the men in charge of the system billions. And in exchange for the best years of their lives, forfeiting a shot at an actual education to keep their eligibility, and often as not their good health, 99% of these kids get left with nothing. They're getting taken advantage of just as much as the single parent taking a Payday loan to keep the heat on, and by some of the same people. Don't denegrate the situation many of these young men find themselves in with a fake comparison.

08/07/2017 - 8:12am good fucking call

making her decide between ransoming her brother lover or keeping the cash flow from the iron bank would put her and Jaime's relationship under possibly more stress than it can handle

07/28/2017 - 8:17am 5 more fridays until the long night ends

Shall we bang til morning?

07/27/2017 - 11:14am thanks for

putting all this info together in one place, good concise off-season content.

07/07/2017 - 10:01am hump day is a Friday?

sounds like a great day to bang!

*won't go to hell for just saying fuck.

I wouldn't be so quick to assume he won't be feeling a little warm in the hereafter with that kind of attitude.

06/16/2017 - 8:04am The first two

are definitely in the gameplan, but I'm not getting ahead of myself on the last one. Who knows what the world will look like in 2060...

06/16/2017 - 7:25am The last day

of my first week as a productive member of society. I think I can survive another 44 years of this.

05/12/2017 - 8:22am Up at 7am for an exam that starts in 39 minutes....

Wish me luck? (I go to a university with super late exams..)


All I need is one little, fresh piece of content when I get back, I hope that stops the worst withdrawl symptoms

03/19/2017 - 2:41pm Block too clean

From Moe to D.J., everyone stepped up today. Couldn't be happier with the game. Go Blue!

Is not gonna let any-fucking-body get between him and that dance

12/08/2016 - 9:23pm Muting tabs with chrome

For those of you who use chrome, this is my favorite chrome customization, bar none.  Just go to chrome://flags and use ctrl+f to search for "Tab audio muting" and choose to enable that option, and the little speaker symbol on your tabs will become clickable to mute the tab. No more searching for mute buttons, ever.


That being said, I do agree that some of the ads are shitty. Didn't expect moms to advertise with mostly naked women masquerading as t-shirt models.

11/11/2016 - 8:39pm Dragon's Milk tonight

Only takes about one and a half of those to put me on my ass, but they taste like a sweet summer's dream. Well worth the ridiculous price tag.

10/30/2016 - 11:06pm The first link only

For me at least. Have to have a twitter account and be signed in to see someone's likes. The other two came up just fine.

10/29/2016 - 9:57am Loading some boxes

into a truck for Lutheran World Relief. Not personally very religious, but maybe the big guy will look down, see me in maize and blue, and help us top 78. #beatstaee

10/28/2016 - 11:33am Beautifully written

JD's self awareness and eagerness to serve blow me away. Maintaining perspective from such a high perch takes an incredible man. Very proud to cheer for him on saturdays.

10/25/2016 - 5:16pm So, is WD showing up as two

So, is WD showing up as two different people other than himself in the same thread, or...

10/24/2016 - 11:39am Distributing playing time is a win-win-win

Reduces chance of injury to starters, rewards players performing in practice, and gets the future starters game snaps. If it does create some good feelings, to Harbaugh, I'd have to say it's a side benefit to him.

10/23/2016 - 2:35pm Was talking to a friend about

Was talking to a friend about it last night, so I looked up rankings at the time we played.

In 2011, we were ranked and they were unranked but I don't really count that, because, well - it was a dumb year.

In 1999, we were ~10 and they were unranked.

The last time both teams were ranked and we were higher was in 1997.


We back.

10/23/2016 - 2:18pm It was first

Moms bumped it back up because it was pushed almost off the front page by other posts

10/22/2016 - 8:03pm We will show up in EL

Focused on delivering obliteration, with an intensity unknown to mankind. The destruction will be cruel, no mercy will be shown, and the tears will be sweet.


Beat State.

10/22/2016 - 7:17pm Believe I heard

BTN sideline reporter say he was cleared in the locker room but held out for the day as a precaution and because he wasn't needed. Not sure how accurate it is, because that seems pretty detailed and not something likely to come from Harbaugh, but BTN aired it.

10/21/2016 - 6:22pm I believe at least one of

I believe at least one of them got arrested; unfortunately, there's no shortages of boys (in terms of maturity or actual age) with too much time on their hands who want to break things for fun and attention.

10/20/2016 - 9:42pm All the kids will know

is that you stepped up and are coaching them, so thank you for doing it - they'll appreciate it!

10/16/2016 - 2:10pm Up to #3 in the AP

Looks like pollsters are starting to devalue all these "signature wins" ACC teams have against each other and no one else...

10/12/2016 - 11:38pm Thank you & your daughter

for your sacrifices for us.

10/08/2016 - 8:48pm Considering the usual quality of talent

Herbstreit is really a cut above the typical ESPN talking head. Easy to hate on him for being a Buckeye, but you have to respect his work.
