This is how I imagine they got that information:
Hackett: Greg Schiano, my man, are you interested in the Michigan job?
Schiano: Hell yes, I am! I was hoping you'd call!
Hackett: Too bad, we already found our man. *click*
Hackett: Les, are you finally ready to stop lolly-gagging around and come home to Michigan?
Miles: You know, I think I finally am...I think I...
Hackett: Too bad, we already found our man. *click*
See? These potential candidates did not receive the news well. Here's to laughing at all of the idiots from ESPN/NFL Network who said Jim wasn't interested. I'm looking forward to seeing Jim scream at the refs while rocking the maize and blue - up by 28 points. In the 4th quarter.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this conversation has never happened. Ever. The other way around? Maybe. No one confuses going to State with going to UM. You're really working hard to have horrible posts today, I'll give you that, though.

The_Knowledge, who will soar on wings like a Wolverine with sweet-ass wings (like a dragon-wolverine), will review the season results before the season starts for us mortals, I'm sure.

Thank God, you're back! As always, great job on the wallpaper. Here's hoping that you do lots more wallpapers this season. My only wish is that the blue background wasn't so 'Bruins' blue (I would prefer darker blue or white - which would probably require the straw change color), but I'll take what I can get, and I know the color was more to help the others pop. Either way, I'm ecstatic to add another wallpaper to my rotation for the week. Go Blue!

So you're saying we go to the NCG? Because 11-1 and beating USC out there likely means playoff bid. I had the same except a narrow loss to USC.

Obviously, the 11-1 record is only reg season, so 12-2 final record.

Michigan beats MSU and OSU, finishing 11-1 with a tough loss on the road to Minny. They meet again in the B1G championship game and get revenge, winning the first B1G title since 2004. Go to playoffs, but lose to USC in a close game. OSU loses its opener to VT, rebounds to win every other game until the UM game, then we break their heart.

I love how uneasy reporters are asking questions of Jim. He doesn't suffer stupid questions and requires clarification on vague questions. I love the whole "do you really want to know this answer?" look he gives when answering. He's definitely odd, but he's our odd coach, and so he's awesome.

Since my team is the New England Patriots, I've not been held wanting in the Super Bowl department, so I'd say UM football, easily.

To be fair, my parents' old Performa booted up and ran great (comparatively, still slow as shit) the last time I tried it and that's 20 years old. Although, that was when Apple made all of their own hardware including processors.

I can't bring myself to switch fully to Linux. I have one machine running it, but my main pc I use for gaming and I don't want to lose all of the games I have right now. Any suggestions? I would love to make the switch and never look back, but gaming is what holds me back each time.

Except that they're not anymore. The OS may be superior (only because both MS and Apple do everything they can to squash Linux), but my family all own Macs outside of me. I still run a 2006 laptop without issues on Win7, never had a HDD failure or any other issues. My brother and sister have both fought multiple hardware issues including 3 crashed HDDs, 2 logic boards, and my sister's recently overheated so badly that it WARPED the keyboard and will not close. All I ever hear from my Mac family and friends is how happy they are they bought Apple Care Protection Plans. Funny, that.

If imagine it's the same as FaceTime or any other video chat. I'm sure periscope just uploads the video to a server and people access is through that. I highly doubt you're providing each connection live video directly. In fact, it might be less than FaceTime because you're not receiving video, just sending.

This. Good lord I'm sick of fucking apparel threads. We get it, it's the off-season, but come on. There was a thread just yesterday on white away jerseys. Do we really need ANOTHER just because WD needs to prove he has better info and pad his points? Just fucking post an update to the other 17 threads in the past week or so.

First of all, great work. You did a great job cutting Harbaugh out from what appears to be a very nice quality image. I love the raw emotion portrayed by the image. I can see what people are saying about the yellow tint to Harbaugh's face, but I get that you were toning the overall image to give it a consistent color grouping, so no big deal to me. I also get the splash in the background, as it's quite popular in design. Great choice in font - very clean and crisp.
I love that you're branching out and posting your work. I know that it's very intimidating to share your work for the first time, especially with a fanbase as "involved" as ours. I took the leap after being mesmerized by MonuMental's fantastic work. I always loved how beautiful his work was. Specifically, his Sugar Bowl fireflies wallpaper made me nearly weep at its beauty. I would love to see him back in the game here, as well. The more awesome wallpapers to choose from, the better, especially for those of us who live in Columbus amongst Buckeyes. It gives me great joy to see the look of disgust on their faces when they walk up to talk during work and see my dual-monitors in all their maize and blue glory. You have just helped contribute to Buckeye fans wanting to vomit. Congrats!
Keep up the good work and we should work on a collaborative wallpaper project. I've had some good ideas in the past, but I am only one man and couldn't get it done. Perhaps, if you're up for it, we can tag-team some wallpaper goodness. Let me know. Thanks for the shout-out, by the way. I always enjoye some encouraging words and would also welcome some constructive criticism (seeing as you are a designer).

If it wasn't for fear of being attacked by the trademark police, I'd make this a magnet for sure, as that is an amazing idea.

Thanks for the thoughts. I didn't attempt to copy fonts because I wanted it to be slightly different, but I could attempt a thinner font as an alternate version. As for it being cluttered, I'll look at reducing the font size a bit and see if that helps. Thanks for the photo suggestion, but I tried to go for photos of Jim that are actually him as the coach, not photoshopped. There will be a lot more available after the season for sure.

Speaking of marching bands, did anyone else hear about OSU's band getting in more trouble? Apparently, they found a "special" songbook with lots of songs making fun of the Holocaust, etc. They said on the radio that they'd updated the songs as recently as 2012 and it's been around since the early 90s. Absolute garbage that just goes to show that their band culture is just as bad as everyone thought.
