The PSU game is on right now.
Lost in the football action of today was two BIG wins by the Michigan Field Hockey and Volleyball Teams.
First, in its first game of the NCAA Field Hockey tournament, #10 Michigan beat #7 Wake Forest in Chapel Hill, N.C. Michigan lost to Wake Forest earlier in the year 3-0 in Ann Arbor, so this is a big win. Michigan advances to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2010 and will face #2 seed North Carolina. Michigan lost to NC 2-1 in Ann Arbor earlier in the year, but that was the same weekend as the Wake Forest game, so the result certainly could flip. The semifinal and NCG are in Ann Arbor this year as well, so that certainly could be cool to see.
The Michigan volleyball team also ended a 4-game losing streak with a sweep at #14 Ohio State. Michigan had lost 6 of 7 coming in, including very close losses to OSU and Penn State at home, so this win can hopefully provide some momentum going into the final weeks and (hopefully) the NCAA tournament.
Lastly, Michigan Women's Basketball team scored a 90-62 win over Binghamton.
Harbaugh Effect knows no bounds
OK, been on the fence about heading up to Minneapolis, but after sitting in Michigan Stadium for about 30 minutes in stunned silence I now realize that I will need to be there for the Minnesota game. I have never attended a game in Minnesota so I would appreciate some help / tips from anyone who knows.
Planning to drive up on Saturday morning then stay maybe in Eau Claire, WI after the game (shorten the return trip). Are there "public" tailgating areas close to the stadium ? What sections are some of the MGoUsers sitting in ? Any other tips are welcome. Since this is to restore my mental status, I'll probably turn the cost in for medical reimbursement !
Thanks and Go Blue!
Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen. I went into this wallpaper week with two main ideas (one to come later if I can get it done tonight). This one is pretty obvious - Michigan State loves them some "chip on the shoulder." Grumpy Mark always seems to find a way to feel disrespected and this wallpaper celebrates the Spartans' favorite snack. As always, I welcome constructive criticism and/or wallpaper ideas. Let me know what you think. I hope you all like this one. I'll finish the mobile version tonight and edit the post. Go Blue! Beat State!
EDIT: Fixed to EDT from EST, added iPhone/Mobile version.
EDIT II: This was my second idea. It's so perfectly set up. With the official "future" date only 4 days removed from the game, I went with this. Additionally, Oct. 12, 1985 was a 31 - 0 shutout of MSU with Harbaugh at the helm. Those dates are reflected in the time-circuits details. I'm happy with how it turned out. I first had this idea a while back and made the following:
That was just the beginning...I knew I wanted to do more. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED CLEANED UP FILES FOR GAMEDAY POSTERS. I WILL OBLIGE.
