to play football, not to play trumpet
Maize and Blue Canadian flag.
also, blame Canada
A basketball player. Keep the Denard one for a couple more weeks, but then go with a hoops player. We have a possible Final Four (national champion?) team on our hands here.
I think it would be nice to have a basketball themed banner for the 1st time
I'll leave the tagline up to Brian
Why use Jake Ryan's mad flow when you have the chance to enshrine Mitch McGary and Jordan Morgan's magnificent manes?
Staying with the music theme...
"... on a bicycle built for two."
The coaches until a standout for 2013 arises.
of our best/favorite/ect players either currently (ala, Jake Ryan-Trey Burke-Trouba (hockey love)- and maybe DG?) orrrrrr we go old school Mt. Rushmore with people along the likes of Des, CWood, Comrie, Turco, Barry Larkin, Brady, Cazzie, ETC.) Itd be nice to incorporate all 4 major sports.
anyone have any idea about the status of the MGoHallofFame?
Naked guy. Always the mgoblog naked guy
We should at least have Naked Guy banner day each year, where the banner reverts back to its most glorious form for 24 hours. January 2 would fit nicely AND IT"S TODAY!
Most people's eyes simply can't comprehend that beauty.
because "this love's for gentlemen only"
Seriously though I am always a sucker for the naked guy. Love that guy.
It's not that often you have possibly the best player in the country to cheer for.
How about a picture of a 'Good' Borges and a 'Bad/Evil' Borges with a tagline of, "It's a love/hate relationship".
I mean threads about him do dominate the board during the season.
how about a picture of our new offensive coordinator?
Being on the banner should be like wearing the #1 jersey. It has to be earned. For now I would say no one should be on it.
it doesn't show a single solitary pixel of uniformz.
I echo the basketball banner idea, for the first time I can remember it actually makes sense to have one (hooray!)
After that though, if we don't have a great one lined up for next football season I wouldn't have any problem going back to the Hoke banner, that one was 100% pure class, and really awesome work by blog banner standards. I'd much rather have that than any generic/poorly made banner.
A whale named secondary beaching himself with Ace Sanders shoving bananas down the blowhole.
A basketball one would bee nice. Or it could be dual themed, basketball and football.
I think basketball deserves solo placement. That program has absolutely gone through the crapper and is now ranked #2 in the country . . . it's an incredible story and really satisfying for the long-suffering fans. If you were a kid in the late '80s/early '90s, as I was, you probably followed Michigan football and basketball about equally. Football didn't definitively become the #1 sport in my mind until the basketball program collapsed and it was downright painful to be a fan (I still followed them, but it was hard not to become disengaged after awhile). It's an awesome feeling now to have them back where I feel they belong.
His record-setting, multiple NBA 3-point contest trophies.
I'd say Devin Gardner. He's pretty much going to be the face of team 134.
Brendan Gibbons with a bevy of brunettes.
Denard statue. Chiseled in stone.
How about text from a UFR, so we all remember what it looks like?
when sand gets in there....
It's been said already, but I would love to see Trey Burke
I want a montage or photoshopped image of the face of a "Michigan Man". He would have at least, Jake Ryan's hair, Mealer's beard, paired with Hardaway's facial reactions
Kate Upton....come on, given a choice between an afternoon with Kate, or a game against UConn and a DVR?
But if you had to put something Michigan, I'd have to go with Denard.
Use your imagination...
Imagination not necessary, we saw 50 shades of maize on the uniformz yesterday.
Muppets meet mr ryan
Bring back the Hoke banner. We did quite well when that was up.
Dave with a wad of cash and all of team 134's "special" uniformz hanging behind him. Maybe a sponsored by Dominos logo in the corner. Dolla, dolla bills y'all.
How 'bout a GIF banner with rotating images of Dave Brandon and Honey Boo Boo saying "A dolla makes holla honey boo boo!"
I'll confess I'm partial to football ... always have been, always will be.
That said, if a banner based on a football photo is in order, then my vote would go for a shot of Michigan offensive linemen standing in a line, a look of grim determination on their faces, preferably with banged-up helmets and grass stains on their uniforms.
If not that, then Kate Upton.
I think there can be more banners, and more banner changes. Possibilities:
The look of MGoBlog is well enough known that a picture and tagline change periodically would be fine with me.
How about a football player, basketball player & hockey player of Brian's choosing with mgoblog across it?
Photobomb Brian Cook should be the banner.
Why not both?
I like this one, simple, pays tribute to the original blogspot banner. Plus, the flow.
JMFR, Devin, or Gallon
gif of Norfleet, doing... that thing he was doing at the Outback Bowl.
Words cannot describe
Gallon and Dileo
I've got no tag line
How about a "Mount Rushmore" with Hoke, Belein, and Berenson?
I like the Mount Rushmore idea, but using actual Michigan greats. Berenson, Schembechler, Yost, Crisler, Cliff Keen, Carol Hutchins
Because it's timeless, as classic as Michigan
late Saturday morning.
How about a pic of the MAIZE Rage!!
Jacob Trouba with his gold medal and Defenseman of the Tournament award for his role in Team USA's victory at the 2012/13 World Junior Championship tourney (or IIHF U-20 Championship, if you prefer).
