"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.
I just turned on Game Day on The Ocho and saw a sign that was invented on the boards. After reading so many ideas for clever signs in a few different threads, seeing one in the wild is pretty funny. The one I saw in particular was a Brian Kelly flaming headshot with the caption "You Mad Bro". Just wondering if we can keep a running tally of signs conceived in these forums that make it on TV and maybe a few pictures and screenshots if at all possible. Maybe I'm just overly excited, but the day has finally come so I've lost control of rational thought. Go Blue!
September 10, 2011. Notre Dame at Michigan. 8:00 pm EST.
We've all had this game circled for months, ever since Brandon's announcement or perhaps the soft unveil of the mash jerseys thanks to 'You're Turning Violet Violet' Brian Kelly's not-so-subtle slip during their own press conference.
Either way, this game is a spectacle, and we're essentially the top story of the college football weekend. Gameday, primetime crew, etc. Been a long time since we've heard Musberger, right?
I spent parts of yesterday watching BTN's replay of the '97 and '99 ND games, and I admit I kind of forgot how enjoyable the late 90's Wolverines were. And not because I knew the outcomes. It was about pride. Swarming defenses. Chuck's intimidating ownership of, well, the entire field. An arrogant confidence in the offense's will to win. A-Train.
It was about pride.
It's been some journey since those days, and not necessarily the best journey. But here we are, back in the spotlight of college football and in an opportunity to announce the close of the misery that has hung over Ann Arbor since, well, the horror.
Let it be about pride tonight. GO BLUE.
The artwork above was created by yours truly this summer in hopes of being granted that most magical of things, an official license by the university and ultimately a t-shirt available for sale. Unfortunately, Adidas (technically, it's adidas) basically swallowed the entire night game and stamped it with the 'Under the Lights' moniker. I really wanted this one to see the light of day, but ah well-- hope you enjoy the glimpse of it. Wear the MGoShirts tonight!!!
I apologize in advance if this is old news but I couldn't find anything on it. My friend has class with Troy and was talking to him today. Apparently Troy is in an arm cast and will be wearing a club. This is my first ever post so again, sorry if it sucks.

A thread for all the hype and excitement for tomorrows game.
I just caught an episode of Recruiting Nation on ESPNU, and it looks like TomVH is getting some good publicity/opportunities. They had some field reporters at a few universities talking about the impact of retro/creative uniforms, and TomVH reported from in front of the Big House.
He said that the ND retro jerseys are a hit, specifically mentioning Darius Powe's reaction as, "Oh, the uniforms definitely give them the same advantage as an Oregon-type of school" (This was paraphrased, not an exact quote).
It appeared to be a piece pushed onto TomVH by ESPN because I don't think he would have otherwise ever mentioned jerseys. Nonetheless, it's good seeing him get some TV time, and he definitely had the best AV equipment of all the reporters.
