this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
It's Notre Dame week. More specifically, it's the last Notre Dame week. I wanted to make a few different wallpapers for this game, but only had time finish one. I figure one is still better than none, right?
Anyway. The photo I used is from the 2012 game (I believe it was taken by ESPN). I chose this one because Michigan will be wearing away jerseys this week. It's also just a really cool photo. I used a color pop effect to really bring out the maize and blues. I think it looks pretty cool. Kinda neon-ish.
Anyway, here it is. Hope you like it. Go Blue! (click for full size)
Final wallpaper until Notre Dame and probably the last "schedule"-themed wallpaper I will do until basketball season. I was working on honing some skills creating "embroidered" logos and decided to give the ol' vintage wolverine logo a go. I like how it turned out (it actually kind of looks embroidered!) and I think it may fit the taste of MGoBlog a bit more than my previous schedule wallpaper.

The season is just a few days away, which means it's time to deck out every inch of your life in Maize and Blue. Every year I like to make a few wallpapers for myself. Why should I keep them all to myself?
I'm a fan of minimal design, which I have used in all of these wallpapers. The first one is a 2D long shadow effect on the glorious Block M we all love. The second is sort of my thoughts right now. I'm sick of the analysis, the crying about App State, and all the predictions and rankings. Just win. The last one is a slight alteration to a student t-shirt design submission that didn't win last year.

Update: What the heck, here is one more
I have always been a fan of traditional, simple, and clean schedule wallpapers that can be updated with score info as the season progresses. Since I didn't run across one that fit that profile this year, I decided I'd have a go at it....
Admittedly, I'm at a toddler skill level when compared to expert designers (e.g. jonvalk) that have already posted wallpapers, but if you like a very simple look, you may have use for this.
FWIW, it is designed for my work monitors (1080x1920 vertical orientation), but if there is a size you'd like, I can try to make it for you if you let me know. Since I live in Arizona, all game times are noted in Pacific time (pre11/2) and Mountain time (post 11/2) in the first link, second link is Eastern time for all you folks closer to Ann Arbor.
Can't seem to embed the file in the message, so you can access it here:
Version with games in eastern time:
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.
