I have a hard time stomaching these kinds of jokes

Come for the sports, stay for the Bhagavad Gita/Oppenheimer references.

06/07/2017 - 9:18am Psychologist here

Pretty sure talk therapy about PTSD doesn't explicitly make it worse. It brings up a lot of shit, which is why before any trauma work is done, there needs to be good grounding and coping skills in place before you dig into the trauma, which yes may in the short term increase PTSD symptoms, while also decreasing them in the long-term, you know. So to generally say talk therapy makes PTSD worse is missing the point.

08/22/2015 - 11:34am I'm not saying this doesn't

I'm not saying this doesn't fit as a diary, it does, but this would get way more eyeballs and feedback on the board.

07/16/2015 - 6:25pm I guess that's me

I was quite surprised it was available when I decided to stop lurking and join up.

07/16/2015 - 6:24pm you're right

An oversight on my part. Fixed.

07/09/2015 - 2:32pm Internationally-renowned

Internationally-renowned pizza in my backyard? Don't mind if I do!

07/02/2015 - 12:44am the bisque

Oh, you mentioned the bisque

06/28/2015 - 3:05pm It's not even the most

It's not even the most commented on diary this month.

06/27/2015 - 9:27pm Left Hand Milk Stout while

Left Hand Milk Stout while "studying" for summer grad school.

06/26/2015 - 7:16pm Working on some of my buddy's

Working on some of my buddy's homebrew. It's pretty good, kinda grapefruity, which is actually pretty perfect for a warm, sunny day.

05/13/2015 - 7:23pm Thanks for posting, Ace!

Thanks for posting, Ace!

03/17/2015 - 11:00pm Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout

I don't know of it's availability in Michigan (or outside of CO, for that matter), but Left Hand's Nitro Milk Stout is pretty darn solid, IMO.

11/06/2014 - 4:28pm Word Salad

09/12/2014 - 5:08pm Legitimately curious question:

Where would sugar fall on that chart? Is sugar psychoactive? 

08/22/2014 - 6:29pm Devin Lucien

Coaches turned away Devin Lucien in the transition class as well, IIRC.

05/03/2013 - 12:26am DOTW material?

While none of us like how the run ended, I enjoyed the write-up, thanks for sharing. DOTW material?

05/02/2013 - 1:18pm Who negs the Mathlete?

^This guy*

*Hoping this was accidental

05/01/2013 - 12:30am 1) Never, ever, trust a dude named "Morgan", eh?

Are you suggesting we not trust Jordan "MORGAN?"

04/29/2013 - 2:45pm If by "Mod" you mean a Rivals

If by "Mod" you mean a Rivals Mod who secretly has an MGoBlog account and is pissed because this seemingly paywalled article isn't (despite the barrier_noentry in the URL), then yes.

04/19/2013 - 10:30pm Scotch

The Balvenie Doublewood. Delicious.

04/05/2013 - 8:03pm If you like their Imperial Stout,

I'd also recommend their Milk Stout as well. I had it on tap (nitro) last night, and it was delicious.

03/28/2013 - 4:47pm I'm in a similar situation,

Insofar as I won't (potentially, yes, knock on wood) be able to watch Sunday's game (or Friday's game for that matter), as I will be out of the country. I do, however, have a DVR, and checked Sunday's lineup on CBS. It looks like there's one game at 2 pm (eastern), and one game at 4:55 pm (eastern). I'm taping them both, just in case.

03/28/2013 - 1:20am Wait a minute

We got Roy Williams? To be an assistant to Beilein or he switched to football or what?

01/18/2013 - 3:45pm You stay classy.

It's generally frowned upon around here to suggest we curb kick anyone, much less U of M players

12/07/2012 - 12:16pm i am engaging in sexual congress with foodstuffs

To my surprise, this was not the first time the tag  had been used.

11/30/2012 - 1:13pm Will Campbell

Didn't Will Campbell originally commit to Carr before he de-comitted and then re-commit to RR?

10/18/2012 - 12:21am satirical and geeky

That was amazingly satirical and geeky at the same time: somehow I thought those would be mutually exclusive. I was wrong.

Man I wish more people understood statistics...

09/26/2012 - 12:16am About that...

"Well, Notre Dame - a school with a proud of being independent in football (which makes absolutely no sense to me!)"

Funny, that made absolutely no sense to me either.

09/18/2012 - 8:37pm I-A/I-AA vs. FBS/FCS

Namely, because it's stupid. We had perfectly fine distinctions of I-A and I-AA, before they came around with the FBS and FCS designitions. I understand that one is the (B)owl, and one is the (C)hampionship, but it's stupid, arbitrary, and goes messing with something that didn't need messing with.

09/18/2012 - 6:31pm A sad day

I got to meet Steve once, as he not only was a fellow alumnus of Colorado College, but a member of my fraternity as well. A really cool, down-to-earth guy who did amazing things for the NFL. He will be missed. 

09/02/2012 - 11:21am also Darboh, Bolden, and Houma

In addition, Darboh took some snaps at WR, Bolden was in there at LB for a bit and special teams, and Houma played special teams as well. From mgoblue's player participation:

That's 12 true freshman taking game reps- granted most of those guys didn't play a big role, but still, that's a lot of freshman out there.

08/31/2012 - 5:53pm My bad

I googled the URL and thought I was safe when I didn't see anything. Sorry about that

08/28/2012 - 12:33pm Dileo

The chart also lists Drew Dileo as RS-JR


05/22/2012 - 10:19am Montana Tech FB Coach

I guess this is more a series of interviews than a press conference per se, but he definitley has some one-liners that make you ask: "did he just say that?"

My favorites:

"I really feel like our team, at this point, is ready to go hit individuals from another institution of higher learning." 

"I want these guys bouncing around today like a pogo stick on viagra."

"Like a homely girl on a honeymoon- busy. Busy. Busy."

04/28/2012 - 12:13am UF attrition

Here's a good Dr. Saturday article about the UF attrition. I have no idea how much attrition has occurred since the article was penned (which was Oct. 26th), but as of then, only 60 of the 85 players who signed LOI's since 2008 were still on the team.,wp8736

Edit: Also, Alabama lost two more players to attrition over that same time period (27 vs. 25), but they also (over)signed 24 more LOI's (109-85) in those four years... #stopoversigning

Side question: Matt Hinton left Dr. Saturday- does anyone know where he might have landed?

04/13/2012 - 12:08pm Sully has nothing on the Piston's mascot
04/03/2012 - 11:09am Don't forget BGSU

Meyer also won at BGSU- which itself is an accomplishment- with 8-3 and 9-3 records before bolting for Utah.

03/31/2012 - 11:27pm No I got it.

But that doesn't mean I shouldn't apologize for my mistake.

03/31/2012 - 11:11pm oops.

Definitely did not mean that. While I may have been influenced by the post I was responding to (which also mispells the word), that excuses not my mistake. Mea maxima culpa. 

03/31/2012 - 10:07pm It sounds weird,

but one of my favorite hot summer day beverages is negro modelo on the rocks with a good bit of lime, preferably served in a pint glass that has had some time to chill in the freezer. 

Tonight it's regular Jack on the rocks, only because I ran out of Bulleit and I found a pint of JD in my camping stuff (I find a pint is the perfect amount for a couple days in the wilderness w/out adding a ton of weight) as I was prepping for some summer hiking. All in all, a decent, if unexpected find. Like findng a $5 dollar bill in some old jeans.

03/21/2012 - 2:56pm Arizona b-ball

That Arizona basketball team will be a very dangerous team when we match up with them.  In addition to their crazy 2012 incoming class, also consider that their 2011 class had 4 top 100 recruits, 2 of whom were top 20 recruits.

03/13/2012 - 3:32pm Not Ace,

but I'll go out on a limb and and guess that it'll be sometime on Tuesday.

03/12/2012 - 10:43pm To be fair,

Fat tire is decent, but there are probably 4 or 5 different New Belgium beers that I'd take over it too.
