I came across this earlier tonight and it gave me a laugh. Michigan is #8 on the list. My first post so I hope the link works.
OT: EDSBS REDESIGNING CFB FIELDS
is unrealistic because it uses the old M logo.
And the Michigan Daily uses the LA Times crossword.
I wish Michigan would get blue endzones with Maize lettering. Pretty much every big boy program has colored endzones I've noticed.
Our endzones are just fine.
Mgoblog needs a score for posts higher than 5 for this comment.
"Everyone else has one" is literally the worst possible reason for Michigan football to do anything.
Sometimes I wonder if that reason was used for alternate unis and RAWK music.
It's the reasoning that keeps mascots in the conversation.
Get the hell off my lawn.
"Colored" endzones is a bit archaic. They prefer the term "Endzones of Color".
Bring back hash tags!
That's really funny. Tennessee's is also good and Illinois is the best.
As a fan of the old Oregon Trail game I really liked the Oregon one. Tennessee was probably my favorite. Either that or I was just hypnotized by the orange and white checkerboard.
No doubt, a true Michigan Man does the extra big Saturday crossword. And finishes before a noon kick-off.
As a student I feel that it will be difficult for me to complete the crossword before the game if I have to get there early to wait in line.
Pretty sure you can do the crossword while waiting in line. In fact, that sounds like a match made in heaven.
We did both the LA Time and NY Time Saturday crosswords while walking to the game, uphill both ways in a snowstorm! ...kids these days
Ole Miss's endzones look like nugs of dank to me.
The way they've been recruiting I suppose that would be acceptable too.
The stickiest of the icky.
Both teams' captains are issued pens (no pencils) to determine kick-off. We have all day, people.
Seriously who the fuck uses pencil?
Lesser men, that's who.
The thought of watching Tennessee and LSU playing on that field is just too good to pass up. Also, the Illinois one isn't a joke, they might be better off actually trying the new style.
On a serious note, I'm just glad Michigan Stadium has "Michigan" in the north and south endzones. Not a fan of splitting between the name and the mascot like Texas does.
So MSU's should look like a prison with cell bars in the end zone?
The other is that they just set the end zones on fire.
Florida's would definitely win for the most uneasing - I can only imagine having to play 60 minutes of regulation with the eyes of Will Muschamp fixed on you at all times. For some reason, I saw Oregon's and imagined a game call where they would describe Marcus Mariota, battling typhoid, as fording the line of scrimmage with 1000 pounds of offensive linemen in his wagon.
But we all know what would have been in the end zones.
Noticed someone earlier mentioned having painted end zones and then got 3 negs right away... Why would painted end zones be a bad thing?
It's actually something I've wanted for a while. The Michigan end zone always looks great at bowl games.
Because change is bad.
Actually, it's against tradition, and while new and modern (laaarge video scoreboards are good, RAWK is bad) has some benefits, part of the allure of the Michigan football program IS tradition, and dammit, we should be proud of it.
And...obligatory get the hell off my lawn.
It falls into the realm of "change for change's sake."
This makes me sad, because it brought a thought to mind:
Is my most hated fellow airplane customer, the person who has already filled out the mf'in crossword in my seat back magazine, also a fellow Michigan grad?
It just makes me sad ok?
I always like to do the magazine crossword, so no, not always a fellow Michigan grad.
Although occasionally I like to halfway fill it out, and mess up half the answers I put in, just for a little added challenge for the next guy. Can he fix it? Or will he chicken out and surreptitiously switch the magazines, hoping for an empty one? Or maybe he'll just suck it up and do the sudoku instead.
Not the best field I have ever seen, yet not the worst either.
