Michigan to Paint #GOBLUE Hashtag on Field for Mott Spring Game http://mgob.lu/UMSpringGame 


Pretty cool idea, it ties in with a contest that the Michigan football twitter page is doing.

In retrospect, it would have been cool if they put #beatohio on the field for the ohio game.  Just as a special occasion though, kinda like the UTL uniform.  Nothing permanent though.

Alright, maybe "cool" isn't the right word.  But I mean #beatohio was trending nationally before the game; the crowd in Maui was chanting "Beat Ohio" when Michigan played; and it was obviously chanted throughout the ohio game.  That was the theme of the game and it irked the ohio fans being called ohio.  Seeing it on the field would have just irked them even more. Maybe "funny" is a better word than "cool".  It would have been fine for a one game experience  at ohio's expense.

The AD has already hansomely paid off your favorites, the Children of Yost in section 17, to run around the 2012 football games completely covered in PNC debit cards and hot slabs of Arby's Roast Beef. Best stadium ads EVER!!!

obviously /s, but didn't want to risk giving you a heart attack due to an aggrevated case of kids on your lawn.

our fearless leader Brian has said this before: give them an inch, they take a mile. 


As a poster above said, all this is slowly warming everyone up to ad's being plastered around the Big House and a little furry cartoon Wolverine running out onto the field during halftime pushing a shopping cart full of the other teams mascot and if he runs the 40 in under 10 seconds everyone in section 34 gets a free Domino's pizza!


eff that shit

I'm not totally against them doing things of this nature, I mean embrace technology (this isnt ND where the scoreboards are pre 90's tech fergodsakes) but at somepoint football is football and I dont need no more junk ad's in my life aka any pro/minor league game.

I'm fine with the GOBLUE, but if I see a Rotel logo come September, someone's getting a nasty letter. 


For the record, I spent 15 years of my life in advertising, selling my soul to the devil day in and day out. Advertising is the root of all evil. But I don't have to tell you all that.

Some real reactionaries.

Initially upon reading this I felt somewhat resistent, too. 

But... let's just consider for a moment that the powers that be for Blue might not be drawing these ideas out of a hat or elsewhere... This could represent yet another way that we are the Leaders.

Surely no one is surprised with our Fearless AD (tm) at the helm?

No biggie for the Motts / PNC Spring Game. But no thanks for the season.

Though if he gets tough and gives us a choice, that or the mascot...
