MGoShirt Alert - Day 10
“Not the New Math, but the New New Math”
This is the tenth entry of the 2009 MGoShirt Alert, a design project that will enable MgoBlog readers to vote for upcoming designs in the brand spankin’ new MGoBlogStore.
It's no secret that, like many of you, one of my favorite players to don the maize and blue was LaMarr Woodley. Watching him wreck opposing quarterbacks was like watching Picasso paint, Gretzky pass, or Anna Kournikova, well, lay on a beach. I've always had a thing for the defensive end position, and Woodley was clearly one of the best in recent memory. Even if you hate the Steelers, you had to feel proud of our boy at the end of this year's Super Bowl if you're a true Michigan man.
And now we have this new guy. Kinda goofy off the field, apparently likes doing interviews without shoes. But when he gets out there he's all bid'ness, and is a threat to any offense we play. Brandon Lee Graham. Last year's Bo Shembechler Team MVP winner. Already tied for 8th on the all-time sacks chart, he has the chance to be something we haven't seen since, well, Woodley. Is it an unfair comparison? I don't think so-- if Graham is productive this year he'll be a force that can change games, and a surefire first round pick. There's even talk of him breaking the single-season sack record... discuss amongst yourselves.
Time to vote. What do you guys think?

|Five Stars Four Stars Three Stars Two Stars One Star|
***** Five Stars: Graham gets 25 sacks, breaking Terrell Suggs NCAA record.
**** Four Stars: Turns in 15 sacks, breaking the UM single-season record.
*** Three Stars: A respectable but disappointing 9 1/2 sacks.
** Two Stars: Turns in a Gabe Watson-esque senior season, drafted on 2nd day.
* One Star: Graham gets h-- no, I can't even put it in print.
For the weekend, I need your collective help. Once again in the spirit of interactive democracy, I'm opening up a design for ideas from the MGoCommunity. I wanted to do a retro graphic shirt, and we settled on this design featuring a very Ozzie and Harriet-esque 50's couple who have received some troubling news:
Brian and I have been going back on this design for awhile now with varying degrees of success. So, why not LET YOU WRITE THE JOKE???!!
Yes, here's your chance to leave your mark on Monday's shirt design. We need a response (punch-line) from the dad, to go in the "A" area above. You may also choose to include some sort of tagline, to go in the "B" area below the graphic. I don't have to remind you that vulgarity, while sure to make this shirt pure win, may preclude your idea from becoming a mass production apparel piece.
For every entry submitted, please include an A. _____________ line, and a B. _____________ line if you'd like as well.
We'll leave this open for comments over the course of the weekend, and if a clear-cut winner emerges from the fog then you can expect it on Monday's shirt design. Otherwise I'll take a look at a few of the best and we'll make a decision from there. Until then, see you next time for another exciting edition of-- MGoShirt Alert!

B. Good Parenting
A: Swell! Brutus will be delighted.
B: Ohio State: Turning humans into circus freaks since 1870.
The OSU shirt, while potentially funny (some of the responses here have made me chuckle), still makes me cringe a little. It reinforces the point that we can't talk trash to them about anything that's happened on the field lately. We have to play the Northwestern card on them. Ugh.
We've got to end that losing streak ASAP.
A: I'll get the shovel, you get the bleach.
B: How Buckeye trees are really planted.

A: The sky's the limit for our boy!

man I can't believe the negative points being passed out, must be some under cover osu fans or some really uptight Michigan people...well anyway.
