Actually, it's a painting by Ivan Makarov, from 1861, of General Nikolai G. Kazankov. You can see the original here.
I mainly chose it for the decent quality and it fit what I wanted to do.

Didn't get to watch the game live. After watching, Maryland dropped easily 5 first down type yardage passes. Part was pressure/hearing footsteps, I'm sure, but this was a less dominant defensive performance than against BYU, IMHO. Also, delayed handoffs seem to work against us. Their best yards on the ground seemed to come from those where we over-pursued and didn't stay in gaps.

Anyone who has seen him perform live knows how amazing he is. Personally, I think his guitar skills are up there with Stevie Ray Vaughn. His live version of "Covered in Rain" is epic.

Two consecutive weeks with shutouts and only 105 yards allowed each outing. That's nasty.

Also, FYI, the tassel did not originally do that. I used "Puppet Warp" in Photoshop to change how it was laying so that it would cover it up. I'd already rasterized the game detail text and applied blur to it, so I didn't want to have to redo it. You have no idea how much I love that someone noticed the change. Haha.

That was actually not a sun, but supposed to be a gold-foil'ish medallion for the book cover a la The Newbery or Caldecott awards. I'd planned on having some of the game details inside it embossed, but I liked how it looked only partially there. It filled the empty corner space perfectly. All-in-all, it did end up kind of looking like a sun, so here's hoping!

I don't expect them to, but that would be badass if they worked things around my schedule. My point was that I had a well-planned out day that involves things I cannot back out of and thus I will miss the whole game if it's moved to noon. That's it. However, I upvoted you anyway...

This sucks because I volunteered to do an audit at work knowing that I could get a full 8-hours of overtime in and still have time to eat dinner and put the kids to bed before the game started. If they do move it to noon, it will mess with my whole day. Someone better be on their A-game at tenyardtorrents and get this up quick...Stupid hurricane.

You're fucking 20 years old. Get a grip on reality, man. People can have a different opinion about night games and not be wrong. I like night games for the hype, but I like noon games for te practicality and the fact that I don't sit anxiously all day waiting for a game I have no control over. I love your passion for UM, but you don't even have a lawn to get off of, so don't act like you do...respectfully, my ass.

Ah, good ol' Carol Stream, the billing address capital of the world. As a banker, I probably helped hundreds of people set up online billpays that were heading to Carol Stream.

I live in the heart of Ohio, Columbus. Don't get me wrong, most of the year I enjoy living here. The economy is great compared to lots of other places and I like my neighborhood. However, during football season when I'm constantly rocking my UM gear, I get non-stop "you got something on your shirt..." jokes and "Michigan?" It's annoying as shit. I couldn't even go to the 4th of July Parade without people IN THE PARADE making comments. What the hell? Anyway, all that to say that I'm out next weekend due to parental duties (my wife is working, so I have the kids all day). I'm hoping to get up there for Rutgers, though. I appreciate the offer and maybe we can make it work in November?
|1 week 1 day ago||I like this idea simply||
I like this idea simply because there have been times I've been available to go to a game, but no one else is around me, so I end up staying home to watch the game. If I had an MGoConnection that would have tickets available (even for $$$), I'd love the chance to chat with peope I know are just as crazy about Michigan as I am.
Also, as a non-alum, but life-long fan (family is all from Michigan), I'd love to set up an MGoWatchlist for those of us residing in Buckeye country who would like to get together and watch games with other Wolverines.

Sorry about the lack of wallpapers. I've been working lots of overtime and so it's cut into my creative downtime. I will try to have a good one ready for this week.

Definitely the 1993 clobbering of OSU. They had nothing on us that day and half of my friends who'd come to watch the game (OSU fans) left at half without any hope of seeing their team come back.

WMU had this game in good shape and blew it. Wow. I guess it would have reverted back to normal anyway, but it's frustrating that teams self-destruct when they have a chance against OSU.

Man, I hate Ohio State. WMU should be up 14-7 right now. Marching down the field with ease twice in a row and then their freaking center kills them twice!
