FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
An idea was sparked in the minds of the marketing gurus at Omaha Steaks when Peyton Manning barked "Omaha" over 40 times in the Bronco victory over the Chargers.
Apparently, the gurus may be willing to pay to hear "Omaha Steaks" instead.
Personally, I'm hoping Hooters can fill the ad space.

Hoo would you like to see Peyton endorse?
So, someone planned a homepage takeover on ESPN, spent a lot of timing building a very cool piece of creative, and just had some really bad timing.

Just thought I'd share this little nugget. They couldn't have picked a better mascot for this spot.
Because for some reason, it won't let me embed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35chMctbg54
I was searching around MGoBlue.com today when the ad at the top caught my eye. At first glimpse, I thought the sign read "GO BIG BLUE." I feel like this ad is somehow the subliminal cause to the "Big Blue" craze and not Lee Corso. I would suggest a boycott of Arby's for creating the ad, but I think the Simpsons has already created that with the "I'm so hungry I could eat at Arby's" line that will live forever.
Or perhaps I should just avoid the field hockey page.
It seems strange to me that there are no ads in the Big House, but Yost has quite a few. As a southerner, and a hockey-novice (only really interested in it since I came to Michigan), would it simply be impractical to get rid of them? Why did they come in the first place? Are we really that dependent on outside advertising for revenues?
