- 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.

But good luck!
Hopefully the talent on next year's team will send Red out with more of a bang than a whimper.

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.
|1 week 6 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.
|11 weeks 2 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:
|11 weeks 2 days ago||They didn't hurt... just gave||
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.
|11 weeks 3 days ago||Hmm. Interesting.||
Sounds good to me.

Good job. Good effort.

Nice work as usual.

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.
|11 weeks 6 days 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...

Late to the game on this particular thread... but the hockey open thread was a fun one to be a part of for once. Go Blue and lets keep things going tomorrow with bball vs the Illini
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Boom!||
Nice win boys.

So many chances to make it 3-1. Let's put it away boys!
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Wow||
That Hyman goal was just dirty.
Really seems like this team might be turning the corner, even with some great players at wold juniors. Or else I'm just Harbaughing them to goodness... I'll stick with the former.

Not as bad as Raiola, but he knew he was about to step on him and lifted his whole weight back onto Rodgers' leg. Cumong man. Be smarter.

Anyone else feeling a superb sense of relief (is that happiness??) after the general craziness of the last month?
Time to exhale.

Let it ride!
Just thought I'd point it out since there's plenty of fun / positive MGoFeedback in the other thread too.

He said Tuesday because he has Wednesdays off.... Depending on timing of the official announcement I'm thinking this Tuesday would be appropriate.
