10/25/2017 - 7:53pm Not quite right on the Sports Junkies

I was friends with 2 of them in high school and played soccer together at Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt. Met one of the guys from DeMatha that’s their friend and also on the Sports Junkies. Can’t imagine they’re football experts but if they’re excited about Doyle, that’s probably better than the alternative. Obviously, trust in Harbaugh.

Any thought about bringing him back into the QB fold? I have to think this has crossed one of the coaches minds?

02/27/2016 - 8:40pm OT: won't load on iPhone

I've been unable to load the website on my iPhone (iOS Safari) over the past several days.  It'll load halfway then stop.  This'll only happen with this website. The app works fine. Every other page/website I navigate to loads correctly. Interestingly it'll load when the page is private in Safari.  I'm on 9.2.1 and tried resetting the iPhone connected to my Mac.  I'm at a loss as to what to do.  I don't know if the administrators changed the hosting service but I can't go my favorite website.  I don't have enough points to start a new thread and I can't contact anyone on the website. Any thoughts?

01/15/2016 - 9:45pm Sorry to hear that

It can be awful, especially in the head and neck when it recurs.  Thoughts are with you and others whose family members have to go through this.

01/15/2016 - 9:40pm Oral cancer

Tongue, floor of mouth, buccal, alveolar cancer.  Big issue in baseball.  Tony Gwynn, Curt Schilling among others are ones that have been affected.  Tobacco is the biggest risk factor and is synergistic with alcohol.  

More commonly now as there is less tobacco use (depending on the socioeconomic class), HPV is the big cause.  (As someone had mentioned above, from licking and stuff...).  Always a little uncomfortable when discussing this part of why they got the cancer.  Hopefully this'll get better as people are vaccinated for HPV.

01/15/2016 - 7:11pm Depends on the subsite

I'm in the field (head and neck surgeon). It depends on where it is. Base of tongue/tonsil is different and much better than larynx/ piriform sinus for quality of life and prognosis. Quality of life is definitely affected. I tell my pts that the treatment is generally awful. However many develop a different outlook on life and are happy to be alive. Salivation is dependent on the rad onc planning to save the salivary glands but this can be difficult. Stage IV is dependent on many factors. Not necessarily a death sentence anymore.

10/03/2015 - 3:35pm How long will Durkin stay?

I was wondering this after the last game and while this was Maryland, the whole unit looks like it'll be pretty good this year. You've got to imagine he'll get some inquiries to take a HC position.

09/19/2015 - 3:12pm Green?

Anything happened to him? Couldn't watch the game and didn't see his name on the ESPN box score.

09/15/2015 - 8:50pm Too funny

This is exactly the vibe I got when I spent a weekend there in high school trying to decide between UM and Chicago.  I arguably had a better party time at Chicago but boy, everyone was a Debbie Downer there.  Compared to Chicago, UM was the better party school...

09/14/2015 - 11:20am Past performance = Indicator of future results

Looking at this again, I now remember that Patterson was President of the Trailblazers in the mid 2000's.  "Broken economic model" with the Rose Garden arena, poor team performance, temporary "For Sale" sign for the team during his tenure.  A lot of fan disenchantment in Oregon during his reign.  Same results, different town...  (Obviously, UT is not for sale, but you get my point..)

08/28/2015 - 10:20pm Not that bad

The first time one of my friends that moved out the the west coast told me about it, it sounded awful. However having a beer with breakfast isn't all that bad.

08/28/2015 - 8:48pm Team 9am

For us on the West Coast. Have the rest of the day to do stuff.

08/06/2015 - 3:23pm So true!

I wholly agree with Brian's take on Hoke.  That all being said, I think that Harbaugh in 2015 is a very different Harbaugh from 2011.  We might all be twiddling our thumbs here looking for a new coach if JH came in 2011 and is now in SF or Oakland.  He's done his time (we hope) in the NFL and has come home.  

Our emotional investment in our team and institution is probably that much deeper because of the adversity seen on (and off) the field.  For all of us that have stuck with this, I'd argue that I have never been as excited for UM football as I have in almost 30 yrs.  Unfortunately, it's sometimes good to realize had bad we can be before things get better again.

08/02/2015 - 4:19pm Welcome!

From another guy who grew up in Upper Marlboro as well! Congrats and Go Blue!

04/05/2014 - 5:47pm Bought

Love it. My wife was surprised I didn't download something like this in the past.

12/01/2013 - 4:34pm Borges vs. GERG?

They mention UT as a possible opponent. Borges vs. GERG? 2 of our most esteemed coordinators pitted against each other assuming that Al makes it that long.

08/04/2013 - 2:02pm Still a problem with iOS

I'm glad someone posted this as I thought that the whole site had gone down.  That being said, I'm still seeing the "nginx" screen despite resetting my iPhone 5.  Desktop browsing is fine with Safari.  Guess I'll have to use the mobile app instead for a while...
