From Portage Northern.
So yesterday I was walking around Ann Arbor looking specifically for a "Even LeBron Thinks Ohio Sucks" t-shirt for my brother for Christmas. Not a single UP had one! I even checked Moe's. What's the deal?
Also, since that alone probably doesn't deserve its own thread, how did everyone else utilize the MGoStore in the holiday shopping?
While currently only based upon results in CC and Soccer, the run that the men's soccer team made may have a significant effect on Michigan having a shot at winning the Capital One Cup with solid showings from the hockey team and a bowl win atop a basketball tournament appearance (we can dream!) and strong performances from wrestling, etc. Though it may be an award "in name only," it does come with a $200,000 scholarship for graduate studies and... well, whatever. We're ranked #5 currently.
The outcry possibly worked!
Says they will possibly reconsider division names after first of the year. I applaud him if he does. If you screw up, acknowledge it and try to fix it. Hopefully they will take a mulligan on the logo too.
My baby sitter was displeased that she got a deferment from UofM, she said there was a spike in applications this year b/c of some new admissions process. Her # was 10k more than usual, I have no idea if that is true.
From what I gathered from a 17 year old girl who was visibly upset about her situation...Basically, you can fill a common form online pick the schools you want to apply to and then answer UofM specific questions.
Does anyone know about this? I was able to get an early decision for the fall of 97, how does this new process compare?
So I took Brian's suggestion a bit too seriously and decide to make my own B10 logo. Let me know what you think, and let's use this thread for any logo submissions.
A couple of things: The "i" is divided into 12 pieces. The piece that looks like it has a raging inferiority complex represents michigan state. The arrogant one is us. The gradient at the bottom was included to represent the rich past, steadily moving into an exciting, wide-open future. The "Ten" is intentionally in a somewhat more elegant font than you'll see on any other conference logo -- it's intended to represent a collective focus on academics that is largely unique to the Big Ten. The lightish blue, sadly, is there out of neccessity. The other options were pink, teal and brown.
Yes, I know this was a bit of a waste of time.
Just off the wire: Favre is inactive for first ever.
With the chaos that was the ticket giveaway at Ford Field, coupled with the Vikings poor performance as of late, Giants/Vikes may get ugly quickly. True attention should be paid to the Texans/Ravens game as Baltimore's defense has been quite short of intimidating while Houston hasn't moved the ball as effectively as they want. Huge playoff (for those from Michigan, those are the things after game 16) implications in both games, though...
In honor of Favre, though... play him away Piano Cat!
