Your opinions about such things matter, at least to me.
the next noodle will parachute into the stadium itself.
Two things dude. A Michigan Man doesn't make sexist remarks like that and a Michigan Man prefers tortiglioni over that "Yellow #5 and #6" macaroni.
A Michigan Man wouldn't get his panties all in a bunch over a noodle either.
Don't you ever tell me where my panties should be.
Where did the Dude go?!
^^^ The internet has been won, and we can all go home now.
as if there was this great bipartisan split between those who absolutely adored the great noodle of Michigan Stadium and those who loathed it. I'm fairly certain this was more of a case of complete apathy on the one hand and utter abhorrence on the other.
+ 1 to you. You nailed it.
When I got my syphilis treated, Doc said, "love it or hate it, but I'm still going to have to prescribe penicillin."
I may have updated the thread title.
There has to be some way you can incorporate the victory over noodle into your avatar.
I have a feeling the athletic department has this site bookmarked and monitored and is doing this stuff just to anger everyone on here. That tweet by them is kind of a troll.
Serve you all right for thinking the AD wanted to make like $5,000 for a stupid noodle. Who do you think he is johny football?
Was it an ad, artwork, or something else?
on a college campus is like offering water to someone who has been lost in a desert for days. From the wide shot of it posted yesterday, the noodle is positioned on the north concourse. With the new rule requiring students to enter at Gate 10, EVERY student will have to pass by it.
EDIT: It is stated above that this was only inside the stadium for the WOW Friday tours and may not be there for the game. Even so, look at the marketing tests DB is doing. Everyone who was at Fan Day this year saw the Good Hands logo on the north upright nets INSIDE Michigan Stadium. It was later reported that the nets will not be adorned with the ad for the football season to keep the policy of no ads inside Michigan Stadium (at least for the football season proper). With these two not-so-subtle examples, there may be a 180-degree shift in that longstanding policy MUCH sooner rather than we think!
MGoShoe's reaction is almost as enjoyable as getting that goddamn noodle off of the grounds.
Since I'm going to relentlessly attempt to gain employment with the Athletic Dept. upon graduating in April, I'll volunteer to be an MGoIlluminati and infiltrate the department to express the majority views of MGoBlog
Next, they'll be installing noodles in the Carillon.
Basically this is how Athletics does things now. It's completely predictable:
1. Push the envelope just a liiiiittle bit in an innocuous way that is both noticeable and a non-competition event. (Allstate goal post nets, giant noodle, etc.)
2. Wait until it inevitably gets noticed and disseminated on the internet
3. Let simmer for 18 to no more than 24 hours
4. Let it slip on Facebook, Twitter, etc. that it was all some kind of misunderstanding, or a one-off, when it obviously wasn't anything of the sort.
They're testing us. And even when we push back, they're going to come back with a bigger mountain of "new traditions" and "revenue streams" to the extent that there will come a point where we won't be able to push back anymore. The future is coming. And it's going to be even tackier than a giant yellow noodle flanked by Marathon and StubHub ads on the stadium concourse.
The maize Field turf with #THICKE on it? 2017 or thereabouts?
This is three times in under a month. I agree with Bando.
I am not sure one should count the seat cushion thing, I know seat cushions are being banned at Candlestick for 49er games, at least. If the NFL is banning seat cushions, there may be some credibility to the AD's story...but I doubt it.
always smiling, sorta like a serial killer or a gassy baby
I found this thread the most entertaining of the week... Or at least day. See, the noodle brings joy.
As of 7pm, the noodle is still at Michigan Stadium. And in person, it is ginormous.
A noodle that big, if it doesn't want to move... how are you going to make it move?
I'm thinking Brandon didn't think of this when he agreed to allow The Noodle to come in.
And unfortunately, that makes us Troy.
