"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
Ok, ladies and gentlemen - mostly gentlemen, let's be honest - here is my newest creation. I saw the Butkus/Lombardi nomination picture of Jake and immediately thought it looked like a Captain America style shot. So that's what I did. Behold, Jake Ryan, "The Autumn Soldier." I hope you all like it. 27 days until JMFR hits the field in glory. As always, constructive criticism and/or suggestions for future work is appreciated. Mobile and assorted other formats to come as they are finished. Enjoy!
First in a series I'm working on. I'm on vacation starting Saturday, so nothing new for a bit. Hope ya'll like this. As always, constructive criticism and/or suggestions for new wallpapers are welcome. I will diligently try to make content that the MGoBlog community wants. I'm adding two versions of this wallpaper (one with "Redemption" under the M, and one without) and a mobile version will follow shortly. It's getting closer...
Earlier today this came across my Twitter feed:

I'm sorry if this brought back dark memories. We can also make this a drinking thread if you feel that was the case.
Not the greatest news coming from Phil Brabbs today: It looks like his Multiple Myeloma levels are creeping back up. He wrote that he underwent "maintenance chemo" a while ago but it didn't prevent the levels from slightly increasing.
His next checkup is in four weeks. Hoping and praying for the best that he can kick those levels back down.
