Took me a few seconds to regonize what, out of the corner of my eye, was "different". I dig it. It's simple and subtle; which are underestimated attributes. Nicely done.
Oh snap New Banner
I don't get "this love's for gentlemen only". Help?
Edit: it's talking about love for Denard or Michigan in general?
Like me some Phoenix. "Song" of the season picked for me; nicely done blog proprietor. I knew I should know that line but it definitely didn't ring right while just "reading" it; thanks for the heads up.
First time hearing the song. Not too bad on the first listen.
That may be where it's from but it could also be a reference to the demographics of the site. Besides me and a few other lunatics, most people here seem to be well-written men.
so I'm sure it does have several meanings. I feel like the tagline is always a private joke for him, even if the origin is easy enough to find.
The song title is Lisztomania. It's not rocket science.
that tag line would go really well with the MGoNudeGuy banner from years past...
That banner almost got me in trouble at work.
Sounds like a line from the anthem of key west...
...not that theres anything wrong with that.
Because I for sure thought that title meant the football team got a new banner and they weren't going to use the "go blue m club supports you" this season. Crisis adverted but just to be safe, you all better stay off my lawn.
That is exactly what I understood when I first read it. I'm guessing you all are talking about the top of the website, which I like. My heart skipped a few beats, thinking that the Athletic Department would institute some sort of "hip" banner.
That was my initial reaction to the thread title, also. Then I was all like, "OOOOH, BLOG banner, is new that's cool glad it's not the M Club banner that would've sucked you suck dave brandon and your stupid new marketing pizza!!!"
I really like the tag line as well.
I've told girls that I love Denard. They can't begin to comprehend what I mean by that.
perfectly simple... love it
When I saw the title, I momentarily thought the "Go Blue, M Club Supports You" Banner had changed.
I got worried.
My thoughts exactly. Though the fonts have changed over the years, I got a little scared at the title...
I thought the same thing.
About time. Looks great. I would like to see a new one every year if possible.
It means no more OT threads. It means competition and sacrifice.
I am using the MGoApp. What does the new banner look like?
Denard kneeling doing his routine TD celebration, but all you can see is his helmet and right shoulder. It also looks like someone had an accident on his right shoulder.
That's no accident. Those are battle scars.
Close mgoapp, open your browser, click on the mgoblog bookmark, look at the screen.
I don't know how to do all that.
May you never be forgotten. I'm way looking forward to shane. But nobody can do it like you can.
I kind of miss the Hoke pun*, though. And I can never understand the tag line! lol
*HOKE IS JUST PLAIN AWESOME. That is all.
where's the fucking helmet numbers though?
I woke up to the new banner as many others undoubtedly will today - I liked it. Very simple and direct. I must say, however, it makes me think about how much I will miss #16 after this year as well, so it has a poignant quality too, but I imagine we would like to see the depicted celebration a fair number of times all the same. Good work!
nice. thats nice.
where are the wallpapers?
Only five days left and I have no wallpaper!
Of course I could make it myself, but that would require effort...
It was time, I was thinking that would be the only banner for my son's lifetime.
Love it. Simple. Uses the most inspiring and dynamic player we've had in years. Denard's pose represents what we all do on the eve of a season: pray to Santa that he delivers us all a 10 win season.
also, this is meta
2d favorite after 'Minor'.
less is more (except when more is more).
Absolutely love it.
Great banner. Here's to seeing Denard do that. A lot.
Thank you o Benevolent Banner-Changing God!
on Eric Upchurch, who took an absolutely brilliant picture of Denard doing his signature kneel after a score. May we see it often this year.
I have already forgotten what the old banner looked like.
I still trust him. For that matter, I trust him and Denard, the coaches whose names I know, and John Beilein. Beilein should get more credit for being a great guy. I see him at lots of sporting events. A few years ago, I couldn't have imagined saying that about a WVU guy. My opinion for RR never changed. However, RR did find one great person in Denard.
It's pretty sweet that you can see the big house and one of the scoreboards reflected in Denard's helmet too
related to Denardening for sure
Great banner indeed. Wouldn't mind seeing it go back to the wonderful Hoke banner once Denard graduates, if we can't find another equally good one to replace this.
... but the "MGOBLOG" font and gradient coloring has always reminded me of the cheesy MS Word WordArt. I'd prefer something a little more clean, but hey it's not my blog and I come here for the content and not the graphics.
...but my love is only for the ladies.
With that said, love the new banner. Well done.
This needs to be the banner forever.
