this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Surprised this hasn't been posted yet. Barwis was on WTKA with Sam and Ira this morning, discussing his new venture. The podcast is up now-
07 - Mike Barwis in Studio 5/24/11
Also at the beginning of 8 they talk about him for a few good minutes.
(08 - Penn State Loses hoop coach).
Mainly they're talking about his new facility in Plymouth, and how they're going to cater to all types of people, from the high school to pro athlete, as well as mom's with kids. For more info there's his website:
Love his flaming balls. (You have to see it....)
As I'm sure most of you know, today is our last real day on earth. Anyone have anything interesting going on? I think I'll devote my day to spending all of my savings and killing all of my enemies, but I haven't really settled on that.
Mod Edit: Bumped to coordinate the MGoApocalypse 2.0. The earthquakes start in Tonga 1am EST EXACTLY!
So, essentially here's the story. Having read posts by both MGoShoe and Section 1 that related that Mr. Brandon was pushing Michigan toward the Block M as the primary logo mark for Michigan, I sent, over the course of six months, several emails to ESPN.com customer care telling them that they had the wrong logo for Michigan on their site. The first couple were ignored, but thanks to some help from the MGoTwitterati and some links to the official Michigan site, ESPN.com has finally switched the Michigan logo on the site to the Block M.
What had been is now..
This logo, while not the traditional Maize logo, does closely resemble the center court logo at Crisler. I know that the maize Block M, even with the blue border, would be very hard to see on a white background site, but this is a good luck. It will look very nice on ESPN.com
Now to make SI.com change their logo:
Okay, it's still the offseason, and we haven't had one of these in a long time. I'm in a bit of a rut when it comes to new music because my subscriptions to Magnet and Paste ran out.
My most recent purchases are:
Gorillaz - "Plastic Beach"
Nada Surf - "If I Had a Hi-Fi"
Neutral Milk Hotel - "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea"
She and Him - "Volume 2"
Frontier Ruckus - "The Orion Songbook"
What's in your CD player or iPod, and what should I be listening to?
Some early dynasty news for anyone interested. Can't wait to start out as the defensive coordinator at Michigan then work my way to Ball State, then San Diego State, then back to Michigan as the head coach ;)
"...EA and Tiburon have responded and given players the ability to create their own coaches from scratch. You can modify looks, set ages and even pick an alma mater. Save these changes, and you can share them with the world and every mode in your game.
That stuff might sound cosmetic, but it plays into the cool changes in Dynasty mode. When you start, you can choose to go be the head coach of whatever school you like, but the real challenge is taking on one of the new offensive or defensive coordinator slots and working your way up to running an entire team. Yes, this year you can be one of the assistant coaches and manage just one side of the ball for entire games. Do well, and the shot at a head coaching job might pop up. "
So, really off topic but hopefully the community at large won't mind and will allow me a moment...
I am about to be an MgoDad for the first time. I'm young, I was the youngest sibling to no experience with babies or child rearing. I know nothing about children and am a bit fearful. So, I ask you dear MgoReader any advice, suggestions, books/articles to read to help prepare me please share!
EDIT: Thanks everyone for the well wishes and great advice. This community surprises me time and time again with your willingness to help and sincere care for one another. Yet another reason why its great to be a Michigan Wolverine.
FTR: its a girl. Audrey Victoria (for Victors! Yes, I won that discussion)
