How about it, Science?
Basketball Banner Now?
Probably should have already happened, but better late than never. Lets do it!
I bet you Brian and Seth would consider these repeated requests more carefully if people would take the extra step of actually designing something rather than just demanding that someone else do it. People generally don't enjoy being told what to do.
I'd be willing to throw my hat in the ring for that. I even have a good idea. I'll work on it this weekend. What are the banner dimensions? I want to create something that fits exactly and I'm at work/lazy and don't want to right-click to find the image properties myself.
The spring game is on Saturday. Denard is gonna be awesome.
for the team opposite Devin in a winner gets steaks, loser gets hot dogs matchup tomorrow. Denard and Devin get to pick the teams. No contact on the QB's.
I thought this was a safe place now...
I mean...I guess Brian could do that. But I really hope he doesn't. Without diminishing Michigan's recent basketball success and how spectacular it was to see, football>>>basketball for me. And that's without yet mentioning footballas Michigan's athletic flagship and the same for this here blog.
Well, basketball >>>> football for me, so by your logic, the banner should be basketball.
I love football too, but yeah...
I think a lot of us who came of age as sports fans during the Fab Five years regard the two sports as pretty close to equal in importance. And yeah, we definitely should have had Trey on the banner. He's the basketball equivalent of a Heisman winner.
I thought this had to do with a Fab Five banner.
I wouldn't mind seeing a co-sport banner.
Why would we put up a basketball now? It's football season now.
Because our basketball team just had its best season in 20 years and deserves a little praise.
Guess this further supports my view that mgoblog = football and UMHoops= basketball.
They get the interview footage and transcripts up amazingly quick. It's always the first stop when you want to re-live the game the morning after. And his previews are very very analytical...You will get your full dose of Pomeroy and advanced statistics to be sure...
But let's face it...the writing has improved drastically, but it's still dry and devoid of style. If Dylan had hired Ace instead of Brian, umhoops would be everyone's go-to...But he didn't, and it isn't.
I think we missed the boat on this. I don't see an issue with changing it at the end of football next year though.
Lets celebrate the Bball team...make them the banner...it isn't football season till late August anyways
Spring game is Saturday, therefore football season has already started.
I'm all for celebrating the Basketball Team, but thinking that Football season ends is just crazy talk.
will always be football. The slogan is "subs," though, and basketball should be happy with that. That is a pretty lofty spot.
It is technically baseball season.
I'm for the co-sport banner. Basketball earned it until at least August.
Let's have them a banner even if it's only till football season starts (No. The spring game does not count as the start of football seaon)
What's wrong with hotdogs? I'd east hotdogs everyday if it wasn't exceedingly bad for your health
So good I had to write it twice. Darn laggy internets. Clean out those tubes!
that you should never, ever look up on urban dictionary? I get worried by that bit you wrote about how it's exceedingly bad your your health.
although that would be green, so never mind
Will the banner say NCAA Final Four or NCAA Runner-Up?
The Fab Five banner said:
Though it was taken down, I believe our 3013 banner will read the same, showing we made the championship game.
So much fail today...
The_Knowledge, is that you?
Those were the old style of banners, whch were replaced in the Amaker years and then again this past season.
The current ones just say "FINAL FOUR" on them, regardless of whether we lost in the semis (as in 1964) or made the championship game (as in 1965, 1976 and 1989). So it will almost certainly just say "2013 FINAL FOUR."
Burke AND Denard share the banner.
I'd feature Lewan and each of the starters who return to the basketball team, hopefully riding a foursie with McGary trailing behind on a unicycle.
Edit: You've almost got to put Spike in the basket too...with Kate Upton? Would that be too busy?
What do you think Six Zero, can you make it happen?
...that is all.
We just won a National Championship in Swimming & Diving.
Dribbling picture is boring. Burke is on his way out, so use McGary dunk. Jinx?
That banner works well.
YES PLEASE. LET LOGIC PREVAIL. Basketball deserves to be the banner Vanna White. It was an incredible season with ups and (relative) downs that engrossed us all.
Oh man I love football and enjoy the spring game but just now realized thanks to you that I have a hollow life for doing so. Crud, guess ill start drinking to fill the void in my life....until the spring game of course.
Try filling it with self importance like I do. Super cheap and super fun
I want Lewan on the Twosie with Spike photoshopped on the backseat and Mitch riding on his unicycle in the oppsite direction and coach Hoke pointing at all of them for the banner. It is the only possible way for both sides to be happy.
We should have had one during the season, certainly during the stretch run/tournament. We had a team ranked in the top 5 virtually all season and the NPOY front-runner (who went on to win those awards).
Football may attract the most interest over the course of the year, but I'm not sure if that was the case over the past six weeks or so. I'd be curious to know how many pageviews the handful of spring football articles got in comparison to the various March Madness articles. Personally, I found myself consumed by the basketball and not really thinking too much about football during the tourney run.
Since the "Trey Burke Block", on Siva, will never be shown again, due to it being called a flippin' foul, making that image apart of the Banner could be an idea. It'd be a great way to celebrate Trey (and the team), and that should be immortalized play, in our own blog loving way.
I've no skills at this type of computer stuff, otherwise I'd give it a whirl.
In 2008, we had a banner contest and some of the submissions were amazing. They were truly the glory years of MGoBlog.
