Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.

- More MMB, less (or no) rawk
- More earlier games if possible (even living on the west coast right now, let's be honest, some of the games would be fine if they're not in the 3:30 or a prime time spot). Plus then folks can actually pay attention to other important games that day.
- Actual maize, not neon yellow (and MVictors always has good ideas to get the away jerseys right)
- Kill the "you suck" - not sure if this has been tried, but what about just replacing with "Go Blue" - I HATE that they tried to cover it up by adding notes to the song - douse that with fire, please.

Headed to Vancouver for the first time for a buddy's bachelor weekend. En route right now.
Any recommendations / suggestions while there?

Personally, prefer Michigan, but the example in the OP is awful. Obviously needs to be centered and in our font. Has a classic look to it.
I do agree that if the Block M weren't raised, it would be much better.
This does seem like an interesting topic for an actual poll vs. 100 one to two word responses.

Harbaugh / Stanford went for 2 up 48-21 late in the game. The try failed, and they ended up winning 55-21.
Much Bo. Yes, please.

|1 week 1 day ago||In LA||
I was at a bar called South in LA, which has unfortunately since closed. It was definitely the best Michigan bar in town and there were several hundred people in there just going crazy with the comeback. Probably as with most places, it was more disbelief than anything as once we were down big most people had just transitioned over to drinking heavily...
Almost felt sorry for the Kansas fans at the bar... but then again why were they there?
|2 weeks 1 day ago||They should know better...||
They should know better... check the official school logo guidelines. Guessing they just dug into their 90's files to print this up?
Also, the use of "those who stay.." doesn't really make sense in the context of wooing us to switch apparel providers.
Personally, I want a Nike deal, but this is not a good start for them.

Had to find the track and rip it specifically to make it iPhone friendly but I've been using it basically since the ad came out.
Great minds think alike.

The timing would seem to make sense about now with the closing of the academic year.
If true, best of luck. Hopefully he lands on his feet somewhere.

The season was pushed back a week due to 9/11 so this game was the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
Out-of-state students obviously had no way of knowing this would be the case before showing up on campus that fall, and a good 30-40% of the student section was filled with Buckeye fans. The Gonzales safety at the end of the first half made it clear that it just wasn't our day.
Man I wish they would move The Game to a week that is friendly to all students. Obviously not as big of a deal for OSU. To me, not being able to easily attend the biggest home game of your collegiate life is disenfranchising for people who attend Michigan from afar and want to spend Thanksgiving with their families. (A 2-day trip is nonsensical for a lot of people.) At this point, I think the solution is to push it back another week after Thanksgiving.

Don't love the Jordan aspect, but otherwise, good stuff. Get people wearing the right gear for your campus.
Of course Georgetown is going to pull people from all over the country / world with different sports & school allegiances, but college is the time to cement the team you're going to support for the rest of your life.
Not that a shirt will change things much, but might as well give it a shot...

But good luck!
Hopefully the talent on next year's team will send Red out with more of a bang than a whimper.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Update...||
There's a link (below) from their programming schedule that says it should be on WatchESPN, but when you click the link it just takes you to the Watch ESPN home page... which doesn't have the game available right now. Fail.
EDIT: It is up now on Watch ESPN - sorry for the alarm.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Is there a Stream?||
I can't find the game on Watch ESPN for some reason. Is there something I'm missing / some reason they're not broadcasting online?

Sort of unreal that people are so hesitant - frightened even - to post anything, including high quality content, on the MGoBoard for fear of negative community feedback. That should change...

I just want Jim's jacket. Same one he was wearing this weekend in Pittsburgh before swapping to the Baltimore coat.

Originally, as far as I can remember, people actually didn't say anything and it was just a tomahawk chop.
Then, folks started to push for "the claw" which always seemed to have a mixed response. Personally, I always advocated the hammer (a fist) as in the defense putting the hammer down on the opposing offense, but that obviously didn't ever pick up.
Then folks started yelling "You Suck" at the end (Yost is a decent bet though most of those cheers end in "You just suck..." which is the culmination of generally more creative cheers there so I'm okay with it. Anyhow, that evolved to the weird singing of "You Suck" which should just go away. Yelling "you suck" on its own just isn't creative and we can do better, in my opinion.

I guess most recently, it was actually Craig Barker, but MVictors RT'd and I'm pretty sure has had something to say about this topic in the past - here's a link to the uniform timeline which highlights what's being discussed:

Seconded. I chuckled every time.
|19 weeks 5 days ago||META: Hot Take (Request for Official Survey)||
Obviously there's a ton of passion related to this topic amongst folks on the board (and likely even among lurkers). Literally thousands of opinions.
My suggesion is this: given that we're in the offseason (despite basketball, hockey, recruiting, etc. things will still be relatively slow - and there's still plenty of time to impact the upcoming season) and have a potentially receptive Athletic Dept / head coach, I think Brian & co. could / should organize a formal survey on this topic to somewhat seriously see what the most passionate fans really want.
If it were curated properly and answers like (too expen$ive!!!) were not the focus, I think there could be some solid insight around what types of things are truly missed by fans - and at the minimum someone in the AD would take notice of the existence of the data set.
My personal hot takes:

They didn't hurt... just gave them a little weight to make it more likely they'd make it to the field from further back.
I assume that's what the freezing reference was too, but not familiar with that one.

I would be supportive...
But only if they're used in an EXTREMELY limited capacity. I think some schools have regular stickers and "special" ones - like Georgia has a large number of white bones, but then they award black ones for superior efforts.
If they were awarded very few and far between only for great plays (and were relatively smaller - I actually thing Georgia does a good job with theirs), I'd be in favor.
|20 weeks 1 day ago||Awesome as ever!||
Thanks for putting this together.
My only tweak would be to dump Harbaugh's hand as it looks a little wonky, but otherwise excellent!

Apparenty can't upvote over here... but I hadn't even thought of this and it would be a great idea for Iowa - especially in light of coaching transitions at Wisconsin and Nebraska the next few years. They should absolutely do this. Too bad they're Iowa, so they won't...
