Mustaches4Michigan is still kicking around, reading MGoBlog, but lurking. FWIW, we do have ironic coffee mugs from Urban Outfitters with mustaches on them (and a matching pint glass, too).
We do suppose that if ever there was an Opener that could benefit from the power of the 'Stache, it would be Alabama. Mustaches4Michigan has a 100% success rate -- with recorded wins against WMU and UConn. So chew on that, ya'll, as you consider bearding up in August and shaving down to a glorious mustache come September 1st... Ironic coffee mugs from Urban Outfitters are not a substitute, for the record.

And you thought mustaches only helped win season Openers...

Makes our heart swell, our eyes well up, and our breads ravenous for Huskie meat.
+1's all around.
Don't forget to snap some photos of those glorious Mustaches for Michigan and send them our way on Game Day: mailto:email@example.com.
For those that think their wives don't want them to grow mustaches, just a reminder from your friend and ours, the Old Spice Commercial Guy:

Misopogon killed it with his post! It is everything you've come to love and expect from one of MGoBlog's favorite diarists: a heavily research laden post with data that suggests awesomeness.

Clearly that's why you're a touch cranky, David. We like to feed ours shots of wheat grass and babies of a Spartan genealogy. Oh, the wheat shots have a vitamin c immunity boost.
For half of the originating members of M4M, the dreams have already begun. This, we figured since it is an annual occurrence, must be a widespread phenomenon among fans. Our beards are truly happy to see this topic presented as it's always nice to know were not alone.
So dream on, MGoCommunity. May your beards in August and that Stache on Sept 4th make those dreams come true.
|4 years 29 weeks ago||Uh, yeah, what he said.||
Totally what we were going for...
Sadly, it appears that we aren't better than that. Looks like the beard took a snooze and let our normal moron brain pilot the ship... Hey, the 'r' is next to the 'l' right? No? Shitballs. Damn you moron brain!

that's the plan. grow the beard, feed it small children that will grow up to be State fans. and come time for kickoff, shave it down to that beautifully bristled mustache.
this system of beard growing to cultivate a mustache on the sly was adopted to not get fired or look like a child molester in supermarkets. but if you feel like you can rock a stache full time, man, we salute you.
the huskies can put as many helmets in their weight room as they like, nothing though, can stop the unstoppable force of mustaches grown for michigan.
also: danny hope. total douche.

Does it look like I have too much time on my hands? Ha, I'm happy to report that I am gainfully employed, in the television industry in L.A. (I was a film major, actually)
Thanks to everyone for all the great comments. Get those beards started, and make sure to check out www.mustachesformichigan.com for daily posts in the month of August.

And he's killin' it. That's a beard we should all aspire to. Grow Blue indeed.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||Lack of Mustaches||
UConn doesn't stack up well against the sheer number of mustaches that will be grown for Michigan. Don't have the exact stats but it's pretty heavily skewed in our favor.
|4 years 31 weeks ago||on a scale of 1 to mustache||
we are growing mustaches as a testament to our fandom. so there's that.
feel free to join us.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||This, in terms of story and||
This, in terms of story and character arc, is a great point when thinking about the ending:
we have followed this character for two and half hours who needs to reconcile his wife's death. this is Cobb's internal goal (story). regardless of the outcome of the external goal (plot) -- he needs to do this one last job so he can return home -- we feel satisfied because his journey has an ending. the character's arc is now complete, he's lets go and recognizes he needs to move on, forgives himself for being responsible for her death. so, whether the top stops spinning or not, Cobb has completed his goal and his story ends.
however, if there's one ding on Inception it's that, with all the beautiful swiss-watch-like crafting of the plotting and construction of the world, special effects, and all-out-badassery, it's that this moment of realization is not emotionally satisfying. Cobb explains to her: i can't imagine you like you are with all your complexities, you are only a figment of my imagination and i've done the best i can. in a way, its that swiss-watch precision -- it makes logical sense for an emotional resolution, but its written in a sterile, clinical fashion with all the warmth of Ikea instructions.
but again, that's just how my beard feels about it.
|4 years 33 weeks ago||if they let the sedative run||
if they let the sedative run its course, then they'd be in level 3 for a decade. that's why it was imperative that they didn't miss the kicks. or at least that's how my beard understood it.

And only 18 days until the bearding begins... For those who like to break up the time into smaller, more manageable, mustaching units.
|4 years 34 weeks ago||T-Shirts||
Interesting idea, Ryan. Last year we four founding members had custom t-shirts made up for WMU... If there's enough interest, t-shirts are something that we can explore. Perhaps we'll work up a design and set up a poll/voting system on the website... Check www.mustachesformichigan.com in the coming weeks as we get things put together.

There's a clip out there (somewhere) of a bodybuilding contest where a contestant's shoulder springs a leak and starts gushing synthol on stage. Nasty stuff.
|4 years 41 weeks ago||Gittleson's Background||
Gittleson's school of thought (old school 1970's HIT from Art Jones, Dr. Darden, Dr. Ken Leistner, MSU's Ken Mannie, et al) has always emphasized neck training in football:
A little surprised that the article mentions most schools don't emphasize this.
Good to see though, nevertheless!
PS. Mustaches For Michigan starts up in August!

It'd be awesome if we could work the 6 degrees of separation and convince our entire secondary to grow mustaches. Some one with "insider ties" to the team get on this immediately.
Their mustaches will make the pick-six and then run it back too.

We at mustachesformichigan.com started compiling a list of alumni bars before the season started. If anyone is so inclined, feel free to email us your game-watch locations to email@example.com and we can keep the list mostly current.
