I just realized that 5+16=21 --> Blackjack!
I will give you the credit of course...I may use it on facebook or something...LOL
No...yes! Gets 'em every time.
21 = Desmond = Heisman!
Great design - great.
Lose the red, bro and you've got something.
Hopefully Tressel at the end of the season:
"He tasks me. He tasks me, and I shall have him. I'll chase him 'round the Big Ten Conference, 'round the Big House and Horseshoe, and 'round perdition's flames before I give him up!"
here it is on a shirt
two colors, maize and brown on navy blue. would be pretty cheap to print if someone wanted to.
I'd buy it if it said "Rodriguez Revenge Tour" Probably because that's a family name and it would be glorious to wear at a reunion.
In all seriousness, this needs to be available for purchase. Soon.
I have some friends in the screen printing business. I'll see what I can do.
Yes. That is awesome. That would have taken me an entire day probably.
Though I do agree with the person that said rich rod needs to look more fierce, as if he is about to take the head off of somebody.
The problem is that you need a picture with really good contrast in order to get it down to only a few colors/layers for printing. I looked for a while and couldn't really find anything that worked well.
This is seriously awesome.
You should put this up for sale on Cafepress (does t shirt printing on demand)
I'd probably buy one.
I suspect many would, this is really good design.
You could donate the proceeds to Mott hospital (which would likely make more people buy it) if you're in a charitable mood, or just pocket the money yourself. (Nothing wrong with profiting from a good idea.)
If you're the enterprising type, order a small print run of 500 shirts. You could definitely sell 500 of these, esp. on the net.
If you're the lazy type, just put it on cafepress. Profit margins aren't as high as printing them but it's low maintenence.
iowa game is 10/16/10. looks great tho +1
It would be kinda embarrassing to print 500 of these with a wrong date. Great looking shirt though. Goes from concept to rough draft to almost finished project within a day. Love mgoblog.
You should print up a bunch of them and sell them on Hoover St. on game days for $10 a pop.
You could probably make a pretty penny as most people would be happy to have something different than the usual "Rudy Sucks" and "Muck Finnesota" designs that they've been peddaling since at least 2000.
Tate and Denard, and bring them up on either side of the schedule? That would draw back a bit on the length of the line, and I don't think reducing the lettering size would hurt the image
And you need a slogan. May I suggest a simple "Get the Fuck on, or Get Out of the Way". You may have to edit that before it goes in the M Den, though
EDIT: sarcasm on the slogan; but you do need something that evokes Rock
to have a meaner picture of RR, like one when he's taking a player's head off on the sidelines, or to go with the revenge them, one of him flipping off the masses.
The finishing touch would be to have RR in Bo glasses!
Make the tuos game in bigger font.
I am not skilled in any way with photoshop. This took me much longer than it should have. If anyone else wants to fix it up and put their own spin on it, be my guest.
What the hell am I going to do on October 23rd......
Wipe the blood off of your sword.
(sorry, posting tipsy here...)
What are we going to do on the 16th?
On the 16th I'll be at the Big House watching us demolish Iowa so bad that Ricky Stanzi will be asking the Feds to investigate Rich Rodriguez's immigration status.
What about you?
enjoy a saturday where you aren't totally on edge for 3-4 hours, or is that just me?
I've got a kid due that day. Talk about good timing!
Well planned, sir. When my wife and I started talking about to have a child, I counted backwards by nine months to make sure that the kid wouldn't be due anywhere near college fb season. The result - a May 23 birthday.
Yep, that happened!
I've waited for years to have my bday on a football weekend so of course this year it's a bye week
Does nobody else find the idea of a "Revenge Tour" beneath Michigan? I know that we've been down on our luck recently but, honestly, it sounds like something MSU would say (every year).
Maybe I'm just being overly sensitive.
As for the poster itself, I don't think it looks good to just suddenly have pictures of Tate and Denard out of nowhere. What I mean is, it looks like you used MS Paint to cut out section of a picture then make it black and white. It would look a lot better if the picture faded to black (or even better, change the background color to a Michigan blue and have the pictures fade to blue) so that they slowly blend into the background. The same thing could be said of the RichRod picture.
And, as others have already said, a pro-Michigan poster cannot have red and white as the 2 most important colors.
It appears as though you got the logo from the WWE (see here). Changing the name to "Rich Rod's" is very obvious and thus looks poor.
I know this will inevitably offend you (probably because it's offensive) but, I think this is pretty bad. But, that's just one man's opinion.
Simply addressing your "revenge tour" thing here. I think its a funny idea and a good summary of how most of us are hoping this season turns out. Everytime I read it, it sounds a bit tongue-in-cheek in my head, like when youre amped up for something but not 100% serious (example: when non-guidos are at a party and its time for "JAGERBOMBS!" and everybody yells about it and does one but nobody actually thinks jagerbombs are cool).
In summary: Michigan Revenge Tour = 1 season event that is said tongue-in-cheek
MSU version of Revenge Tour = real guidos doing "JAGERBOMBS!" every year because they actually think they're going to the Rose Bowl thanks to Fiutak.
Bleedin, Your opinion is respected, but dude make your own poster. You put a lot of thought into critiqing the OP's poster just make a better one. IIRC he did kind of hand it off to see if anyone could or would improve on it.
I agree, it does look pretty bad and it's incredibly obvious that I ripped it off of the WWE revenge tour.
However, I'm not that great at photoshop and that's why I asked if others wanted to throw their own touches on it.
I simply had an idea, created a rough version of it, and invited others to improve upon it.

Thanks for sharing! I thought it was really cool. Whatever the final product is, please mark me down for a Large! I'll definitely be purchasing one...
what does piss in Cheerios taste like?
Change the red to blue and I think we're on to something here.
We are not below revenge, however. Too many have taken advantage of our vulnerability the last two years, and these grievances cannot be ignored. It is not the revenge of a scorned lover, but a giant harassed by flies in its slumber. These flies must be hunted and destroyed.
College football is almost ENTIRELY about revenge.
I have no problem saying that 2010 is a revenge season. 2006 was a revenge season for the 2005 misery, and that turned out alright.
Totally disagree with your comments on the poster itself. The OP said that he wasn't all that good with photoshop and opened it up to this board for improvements. I am impressed with the shirt's style, especially as modified by some of the poster's this morning (like the color changes).
I sort of hear what your are saying about the whole revenge tour. Traditionally, we are a powerhouse, so a revenge tour sounds sort of MSU / FSU / Miami ish. But, the fact is, the last two years were pretty tough for us. Bottom feaders like Purdue and MSU have been taking pot shots at us (and specifically RR) with regularity, and the media has certainly been all too happy to pile on RR. For RR - a man with a ton of pride and a huge competitive streak - whether he will admit it or not, this season is about giving a big F-U to all of those that have been trashing him.
Based on this, I see no problem to being straight out and calling this season what it (hopefully) is - a revenge tour.
I'm not sure about the critics, but I would be willing to get one as is (as long as it stayed under $20). I think the blue and yellow looks phenomenal!
Brian, did you catch this.
I'll take an XL for me and a 2X for my brother.
On the revenge part, I think it's cool as Rod pointed out revenge is sweet and he doesn't ever forget.
RR: "Crom(fb Gods), I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, or why we died. All that matters is that eighty-five stood against many. That's what's important! Valor pleases you, Crom(fb Gods)... so grant me one request. Grant me revenge! And if you do not listen, then to HELL with you(and ND)! "
Q: What is best in life?
A: To crush your enemies and see them driven off the ball, and to hear the lamentations of their cheerleaders.
sick and I would buy ASAP.
I'd like to see Dilithium (or the symbol for it) somewhere on the shirt.
(If you have to ask, you wouldn't understand).
with a hard ass shoulder bump to Dicktonio next week at the Big Ten meetings.
I would think the "revenge tour" would be the Big Ten season only... seeing as we have nothing to get revenge on UConn, UMass and Bowling Green for. A Big Ten-only shirt would be something I'd purchase ASAP.
I'm sure this will get me negbanged--and I'd probably deserve it--but I have to say I'm reluctant to buy any shirt that makes bold claims I might have to eat crow for later.
I hope more than anyone here that this is the year RR proves every naysayer wrong. But my pessimistic side would be afraid I'd have to toss the shirt at some point in the season.
So, for me: Clever but generic pro-Michigan shirts, awesome. Pro-Michigan shirts centered around a glowing prediction for a specific future game or season, less awesome.
