And very classy! Good job Brian, it looks great!
landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
Drinks on me!
Where should we meet you? What time?
Seriously though, awesome banner.
Also, seriously, where should we meet you?
First, we'd have to get Brian to tag along. He needs to relax and get hammered...
Second, We must bring Lloyd Brady...
Third, We will meet up at TomVH's house and decide which bar we're going to from there...
want some more of it
I just checked the site for the 7th time today, noticed the banner, and purposely pooped my pants I was so excited over the new banner.
No sarcasm and 100% true.
I love the enthusiasm. But I think you may need professional help.
And I LOVE the new banner.
Well that makes two of us.
The "Come On" thread actually worked?!
Also, I think the new banner is SUPERB! Well done whoever made it.
They say that 60% of the time the "Come On" thread will work everytime.
It's morning again at MGoBlog.
Love it. Great job to whomever is responsible.
Great banner that actually seems to mean something. Much better work than the B1G logo that's for sure.
Now back to blogging and not banner griping!
All this really means is the griping swaps over to decommits and transfers
I agree, looks pretty nice. BTW whatever happened to that banner contest awhile back? I seem to recall something but maybe I'm completely off.
Brian forgot about it for a while and then when it was going on the T-shirt cease and desist order came through and the copyright nazi's were out in full force. Brian said almost every one of the banners had a Michigan logo or a player on it, so those weren't legal, and I think he scrapped the whole thing as there were other, more pressing issues to worry about.....
Gotcha, I figured that was the case with what happened during the season, that other stuff took precedence.
Looks very nice and thank God we won't have to see any more threads on it.
long live the King ! and the promise of a new tomorrow !
Go Blue !
That's outstanding. Thanks for listening to the non-enebriated masses.
Props to the designer!
Looks very sophisticated. Maybe we can all go back to being sophisticated ourselves and quit making all these whiny posts about this and that. It looks like Brian has turned over a new leaf and it is time for the rest of us to do so as well.
Anyways, love the banner, love Michigan, Go Blue!
Real nice Clark! Real nice!
Nice! I like it.
yes, yes, a thousand times yes
Very nice new banner.
I like it....wish it said "Hoke Floats" though....reminds me of that photoshop lol
The "Hoke Springs Eternal" kind of fits with the offseason - the connection with spring practices, etc.
It's definitely the correct phrase.....that was just the funniest photoshop I can remember and wish it could have been incorporated somehow. This is definitely smooth, classy and inspiring though.
and then actually realized that he's saying we have a new banner, not begging for one.
I like this banner, not the best we've seen here but I do approve of the message.
Brian, this is the first step to your RECOVERY! I commend you!
Simple, yet inspiring. How about churning out some MGoStore Hoke-A-Mania T-shirts since we are on a roll?
They need to be pre-torn so they can be ripped off everytime we score a TD. Of course, that could get expensive too...
Maybe built with velcro on the inside of the shirt for multiple uses. Also goose feathered boa stitched into the collar. Sunglasses and handkerchief sold seperately.
Excellent idea. I'm sold.
It's morning again
in America on MGoBlog, posbangs for all.
Banner or no banner, hold me TomVH! (no homo)
Love it. Love the style, simple yet right to the point. Very classic.
Still would be interesting to know who won the banner contest in August.
Nice. It'd be cool if we had a guy that, like Six-Zero does during the season, would make one (or two) banner changes a month reflecting whats going on during the offseason. I like this one. Good work.
Wait, I just noticed that it says "your shoes sparkle in the moonlight, fancy dancer"... hmmm.... could do without. Just an observation...
But what will the complainers complain about now?
Oh wait, nevermind. They'll find something, I'm sure.
haters gonna hate
whiners gonna whine
douchers gonna douche
Thanks, Brian, for putting the good of the board ahead of your personal frustration. You are a good dude.
slope what's next bucky neck id womens on the side bars? or some cheese suggestive american apperal ads? If you make a bunch of threads about it Brian just might oblige
They are sparkling extra hard because now I don't have to read 80 posts about changing the banner.
The new banner looks awesome!
Thanks for making the change Brian, and many thanks to whoever designed it. It seriously looks great!
Seeing a new banner is like the end of Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain" when dawn breaks--everything is lighter, the sun comes up and what seemed like eight minutes of doom turns out pretty freakin' beautiful.
We've turned a corner!
the end of "BC" (Banner Change) threads. Almost as nice as the end of "CC" threads.
Simple and well done.
Got a little nervous when it wasn't up this a.m. - was it going on for another week?
Well done Brian
Love the new banner but will the suits issue a C&D due to the helmet? I thought they were not happy with the old(er) banner because of the wings?
And can someone explain the tagline?
Thumbs up, Brian. Great work!
I will miss Chucky staring holes through my soul, but this is a good choice.
I believe you meant, 'Moran', no?
No need to apologize- I certainly wasn't intending to make you feel like you don't already 'know the ropes'.
It was just my attempt at adding a smidge more mockery to your already accurate post.
+1 to you.
Also, I have a feeling this will not end well for you.
Edit: Also negged for being unoriginal and lame.
Now that Fumanblue has left I hear bolivia is looking for a new resident.
bevel - check
gradient - check
drop shadow - check
transparency - check
you have fulfilled the adobe graphic quota. for extra credit please explain clipping masks.
you missed the pattern fill!
But I can assure you, there were no clipping masks used, or livestock harmed, in the creation of this banner.
Great job Brian. Super retro.
Super Retro = bushy?
Thanks for the new banner Brian, though I miss my TomVH kitten.
Suggestion for the banner from June through September - "Summer of Hoke"
Job well done....much more appealing to the eyes.
Very nice. The chucky pic was creeping me out, but at least he has a better haricut than Gruden.
Coach Hoke: FYI: Looks like Brette Faaaavvrrree is officially retiring (for now) by turning in his papers to NFL. Any coaching spots for him and his Wranglers?
He might do a good job of coaching the return team.
Love the new banner! Hoke!
Rivalry Games! Let's win em' brother!
We have a banner?
Ron: ....there's only one thing a man can do when he's suffering from a spiritual and existential funk...
Champ Kind: ....go to the zoo? Flip off the monkeys?
Ron: ....no, put up a new mgoblog banner!
It makes it smell like rich mahogany in here. Now we need some leather bound books.
Check out banner, Mgoblog!
Brian's no longer being a little bitch.
for actually thinking that Brian loses any sleep for what you might think about him....
oh yeah.... and for calling someone a "whiny bitch" for expressing his opinion on his blog, of which he affords you the priviledge to be a member of.
I like it; it has a great design. Though, I do miss the cat lol
The carousel was over a while ago.
Didn't we have a banner contest?
It was time.
for "The Great White Hoke", but this'll do.
*Ctrl+Fs for 'tremendous'*
No matches found.
Nice banner! I'm Hokeful 2011 will be better.
I like it, but I kinda miss the cat screaming "Hold me TomVH!"
What is that on the left? Is that a gorilla? The Grim Reaper? I SEE CONSPIRACIES!!!!!!!!!!!
its an arm, its attached to a shoulder, which is attached to the body which is wearing a jacket and tie. it is hard to discern exactly who is wearing the tie, but i would guess that based on the barrel-shapedness of it, it is Hoke.
Ok so it's just an arm.
I was kind of hoping for:
Episode IV: A New Hoke
with some sort of montage with the Star Wars movie poster cover. But I still like what Brian's got going.
Playing on the Star Wars theme, I also like Episode III: Revenge of the SEC. Where Les Miles willingly or not spurns Michigan.
Even the site seemed happy to see me today. Nice and fast.
like the new banner.....very stylish yet simple. Whoever designed it, fantastic job!
Brandon officially passing the HC torch to Brady.
It was time to move forward.
Does anyone know where I can find an image or wallpaper of the background for press conferences?
Like the one used here:
