So I'm not usually one to tailgate, but this week for Colorado my brother-in-law has decided to change up the usual schedule. Thus, we're going to the driving range (not the golf course) to do some tailgating. I'm looking for any advice that people have for the driving range - specifically when we'd actually need to arrive in order to ensure ourselves a decent spot.
It opens at 7:00 but I don't know when people will actually start arriving considering it's a 3:30 game.
I'm used to walking around the areas east of the stadium so I'm not even sure how filled up the driving range gets or what the atmosphere is like. We'll have the grill going along with a TV for the noon games but other than that it'll be fairly low-key for us. So, even if you've got no advice, feel free to tell me what the driving range either sucks or is awesome.
Thanks for the input.
It's time for another wallpaper!
The opponent this week is well known in the Michigan fanbase (we won't talk about why). The Buffaloes from Colorado come into the Big House this week. Before the season, this seemed like another cupcake game. It could still end up being a cupcake game, but Colorado does seem to be a little better than Hawaii and UCF.
It's time for 'ol Harbaugh and the boys to wrangle up some buffs.
This wallpaper is an edit of an old John Mix Stanley painting. He was an artist in the mid-1800's that painted a lot of of landscapes and Native Americans. This specific painting can be found in the Smithsonian.
This is one of the more difficult wallpapers I've created. I cobbled together a few photos from the MGoBlog Flickr to get Harbaugh in the right pose. Hope you enjoy it.
John Harbaugh has finally weighed in on #boogergate. You might expect an older brother to jump on the idea that his younger brother eats boogers, but not John.

Like Jim's statement, that's pretty definitive. I think this serious situation warrants a new banner.
Okay, "like" might be too strong a word. But who do you want to win? I'm kinda hoping they both crap the bed en route to a Sparty squeaker, setting up our game--between two unbeatens--on the national stage.
My stance on helmet stickers has been for the idea, but against the execution. None of the stickers from Bo's era were particularly great, and we're not even using the best design from that era (which would be 75-82).
There are a couple of problems with the current stickers.
- They are too big (even though they appear to be smaller this year).
- A football on a football helmet is redundant.
The easy fix to both problems would be removing the football shape altogether. Viola.
Just for fun, Craig Barker from the Hoover Street Rag asked me to do a mock-up with the Wolverbear.
Obviously, Harbaugh likes the Bo stickers, so I'm not holding my breath for a change any time soon. It's fun to see what different designs look like.
