I wish I had the cash to take out a billboard in Columbus that read “Wins until .500 with UM 14”. Very petty but I’m an angry person with an Ax to grind. I’m sick of seeing that days counter over there. Hail Baby!
The upper left corner of the page is what he GunnersApe is complaining about.
I've been lurking here for years and am not that Computer savy.
Useful when someone provides a pointer to what they are referencing.
Seeing that counter does piss me off, but I have respect for the the local Columbus newspaper actually doing things to promote the local team. All of our local papers (Ann Arbor News included) are more interested in tearing down local teams.
I would settle for objectivity from the press in Michigan. I have often wondered which is worse: a sycophant press or an iconoclastic one. I would settle for Columbus-style sycophants over the gross bias that the Michigan media have shown toward MSU the last few years, but I really do prefer objectivity from the press.
I miss the days when newspapers reported news instead of trying to create it.
+1 to you for acknowledging that you are "very petty, but I'm an angry person with an ax to grind."
That made me audibly laugh at my desk.
Don't click if you're using the debugger version of Flash (if you're not sure, you're not using it). That page has an impressive load of "features."
And I spell and have the Grammer of a Chimp.
2236 days? Thats all? Gosh it feels like an eternity...
The question is: when we beat them in 2010 will they keep these banners up with a big bagel on them?
Or does it start counting into the negative? Or does it just come down entirely because, lets face it, it's a pretty juvenile taunt.
I left newspapers, had two children, went back to school for my masters and and have been teaching for the better part of three years. When I think of it that way, It's a long frickin' time.
and that is sad... since we had their number for so long under Coop.
I think we are on our way to becoming good again but my god is this painful and having to sit there and take smack talk from fans from OSU, PSU and Lil Bro is getting pretty old.
Since i'm in my Twenty's and have only known success from my school I guess I can deal with a couple down years, but for the older generation I can't image what this must feel like for them. So I understand when the old school fan and Alumni are calling for Rich Rod to be fired.
I also understand that college football has changed and we(Michigan) didn't get the message until the App St game and if this what it takes to win again I can deal with it ...but not for much longer!
...is something that teams and fans learn when they are down, but only need when they are up.
