"Jim's a tough guy and you can see his personality is all over this football team," Fitzgerald said.
Well, it's that time again, ladies and gentlemen - it's wallpaper season. For this season's schedule wallpaper, I went with a design based on (ok, copied from) a vintage schedule card from 1969.
I like how it turned out, but I do wish I could find an image of Harbaugh in the exact same profile as Bo from the '69 card. If you know of one (I looked around to no avail), I would be very grateful to the person who pointed me to it. I ended up choosing a picture that embodies how I hope to see Jim on the sidelines during our games - enjoying some Michigan domination. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this wallpaper. As always, I welcome constructive criticism and/or suggestions for new wallpapers. Let me know what you think. GO BLUE!
EDIT: Fixed the font with a font more like what is in the original per numerous suggestions. Thanks for the input, it looks a lot better, guys.
EDIT 2: Added mobile (iPhone 5) variation.

It's that time again. Wow. It's already that time again. That glorious time of year when Saturday afternoons bring bliss and heartache, elation and dismay, victory and defeat. It's time to cheer for the Champions of the West (ironically in the B1G East) and sing Hail To The Victors until our voice is gone. When do we play and to whom do we send defeat? All that and more are answered in the following wallpaper gluttony. In case you missed some of the earlier wallpapers I made in the off-season, I've included those. I hope you enjoy these as they are a labor of love for my MGoBrothers and MGoSisters. We may not always agree on everything (Is Art Deco cool? Is Hoke the man for the job?), but one thing we all can agree on is that we support our Wolverines and to hell with Ohio State.
UM (and other B1G) teams have released the offical posters for the upcoming seasons. I'm a big fan of Michigan's. Between this and the cool weather in SE Michigan, I can't wait for football season. Go Blue!

WELL...now that football is essentially done, it's time for us to focus on the basketball team (yes, I know, and HOCKEY). We play someone good Tuesday, I think, so that should be quite the exciting game. We also get another somewhat good team in two weeks. Man, this December schedule is BRUTAL. Anyway, if you're curious as to HOW BRUTAL or who I'm referring to, FEAR NOT! I have produced a schedule wallpaper for your information delight!

I know we still have our bowl game, but was looking at next years schedule for the potential night game. Brandon did say he wanted one a year.
To me the only reasonable option is October 20! What a great atmosphere to end the spartie streak at 4.
Any other options?
so, this developed out of trying to solve a few problems common to attending a game at the stadium (or watching at home) and grew into a sort of cheat sheet / mini program. i am looking for input about this, such as layout, content, info, ways to improve it, etc. i am willing to put these up each week if there is interest.
problem 1: in response to the larger, non-wallet friendly, ticket sizes, i have taken to using a clear press pass envelope on a lanyard to carry tickets into the game. sometimes these comes with ticket packages or bowl tickets(?). you can wear it around your neck, i choose to tie it around my belt loop and put it in my pocket.
problem 2: university programs are expensive, hard to handle in a tight stadium and get ruined laying on the ground, therefore, especially early in the season, i am often lacking some piece of information that would be really important just then; jersey number, eligibility, opponent info, etc. they used to give out those free ones, but i don't see them anymore.
solution: all vital info about michigan football printed on one sheet that can be folded to fit into the clear press pass or back pocket that is free.
