chance of bowl: 13.6%
So not too long ago I requested the expertise of some of our finest MGoPainters and MGoPhotoshoppers to alter an image that I thought had potential for this week. Well, after no takers, I took the task on myself. I hope you enjoy my first attempt a photoshop:
I'm sure we all know how this match-up will end.
Also, If anyone wants to add a little Lloyd Brady in there, feel free. Go Blue!
EDIT: So looks like my previous request was met after all. Props to jonvalk and PaulVB for taking up the challenge as well! Their's can be found here: http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/request-paintphotoshop-talent
Woodson is gonna be on Jim Rome at 2. Not sure if he'll be talking any Michigan Football but you would think that he will. I'm listening to rome on 1130 am
Per Rivals and RR:
Shaw has been limited in practice this week but he should be able to play Saturday; Fitz is still day-to-day, but what else is new.
Brandon Herron is good to go, according to RR.
Phil likes a 38-31 victory for the Maize and Blue. He's been surgically accurate going 14-1 last week and 90-11 on the year picking top 25 teams' games. "...the Wolverines are playing at home and desperately need to regain the upper hand in the series." Sounds good to me.
I just wrote an article for U Recruit on 2012 LB Reggie Ragland, and thought I would share the Michigan news with you here.
Ragland currently has offers from Alabama, Auburn, and Kentucky. He's a 6-foot-4, 245-pound linebacker from Alabama that also plays wide receiver for his high school. He's a monster, and he's also hoping to hear from Michigan.
Of course Michigan is one of my top schools. I always loved to watch them play.
I also asked him about how Denard Robinson's success might help Michigan with recruiting:
He might win the Heisman this year. If we think the school isn't going to have players we might not look at them, so he helps them a lot.
Just a name to keep an eye on for the future. Most schools are recruiting him for linebacker or tight end.
I'm bored and the following is a concern of mine. I'm sure some here will share these concerns so I figured I'd throw it out there...
Would it be cool/useful for there to be some global location (i.e. a section on the Michigan Athletics wiki page) devoted to the various M student sections?
I'm a grad student now and this year one of the weird things that occured to me was that current UM juniors have not had the pleasure of a winning season. As such, we've had the wave started in a 2 score game. We've had people try to start the wave on the wrong side of the section, do it in the wrong order, etc.
Worst of all (to me) we've had people chant "It's Great to be..." in games that it shouldn't be chanted in. I don't know about others, but to me in my Maize Rage days that cheer was always reserved as a victory celebration of a big game. We should not be chanting it while walking out of a UMass victory.
But yeah, would the wiki page be a good idea? I'm not a regular of hockey games and I know hockey isn't as organized as the Maize Rage, so maybe this would be a usefull tool for them? Maybe a way to get sections like the Zone (volleyball) and the Ultras (soccer) some recognition.
Are there other traditions/cheers that have been struggling lately?
Or if you just don't care and think I'm yelling at people to get off my lawn, what's your favorite Mich cheer/tradition?
So, The Zone has a wiki page. Pretty cool, seems to have been made by members of the '04 pep band. Oddly, there's no page for the Maize Rage.
Also, I put together a userpage to work on a page for all student sections and have gotten it started. Please, feel free to edit it and get it rolling! I think something cool that this could do is serve as a bit of historical record for old traditions gone by the wayside (marshmellows!) so the more contibutors, the better!
