it's a major award
Hahhahahha that is AWESOME. He is definitely staying.
As a professional in the design field, I have often been told (aka thrown in my face) that my team has no true logo, only a block M and a really REALLY cool helmet.
This has happened on more than one occasion, and I am quick to point out the various 'alternate' graphics we've seen over the years, including the crouching wolverine on the block M, the new helmet wing logo we've seen the athletic department use, and even the old sailor hat-wearing wolverine from the days of Bump Elliot.
SO... without further ado this is my first attempt at a new UofM WOLVERINE alternate logo. This was actually conceived from an actual photograph of said vicious mammal, though of course I took certain freedoms with aesthetic license and of course adding the wings. I'm looking for criticism, feedback, what the collective MGOBLOG community might like to see, etc. in this little pet freelance project. I'll likely continue with this idea as free time permits, so look for more in the conceivable future.
I found an image of what they plan on doing! So they will put GIANT "MICHIGAN STADIUM" letters on top of the west structure that will house the press box and then put a GIANT eagle on top of the south end of that structure to scare away giant birds. I guess they are really doing everything to scale, so instead of $226 million, it will probably cost about $230 million. (The extra $4 million being for the giant bird and the lettering, I am assuming they don't make giant 50 foot eagle statues and letters, so they will have to be custom made.) Hahahahhaa...enjoy. Go Blue!
