This is a reassuring bit from Tom Lemming about recruiting. It almost sounds as if he's deliberately dissing on O-State: "Numbers mean absolutely nothing," Lemming said. "Only the ignorant recruiting fans think that's a big deal. A lot of the great players won't even make their commitments until December and January.The race in recruiting almost always goes to the tortoise, not the hare. People who know recruiting, know what's going on. Michigan, for instance, is having a good year and they could have a great year. People need to be patient."

I thought the same thing, that Lemming was taking a shot at Buckeye fans. But then I remembered that Lemming is a Domer-lover, and almost every Irish fan I know HATES the Bucks a WHOLE bunch.

..err... and I heard Lemming prefers Minor's banner. So you see, your honor, my comment was relevant to this post!

Yvgeni is the feel-good, Cinderella story of the year. He is George Mason with a laptop, Boise St in pajamas. But is the clock about to strike midnight on this one? Stay tuned.

Is it too late to propose a banner with that picture of Braylon holding a machine gun, preferrably pointed straight at Charlie Weis? Yes, I am too lame and inept to even spell Photoshop, let alone use it.

Why do people like the Minor banner? The letters don't even line up and it looks like M^(GOBLOG).

i would love to have a larger version (1920x1080?) of Yvgeni's 'evil wolverine' as a desktop. if he replaced the 'mgoblog' (no offense) with 'michigan' or something to that effect. i currently have a shot of the big house @ night as my desktop @ work and even the non-college football fans love it. i think this would scare the crap out of everyone who made fun of me after 'the horror' last year. of course, if/when you can, kind sir.

The contest ends here for me. It was a lot of fun and I think the 10,000 pound banner-eating gorilla that is Jason Minor definitely deserves to win it all. Awesome job Jason. As for all of you that have said nice things about my banners, thanks a lot. Regarding the requests for higher resolution and meaner versions of the scary Michigan guy, I have brought my old wallpapers and stuff out of retirement and am trying to figure out the best way to put them out there. Thanks for all the support and motivation to get my photoshop chops working again.

 I love the yvgeni pic and would LOVE to have as my wallpaper on my desktop. I hope he releases it for such........but as a banner for MGOBLOG, Minor's is best. It shows exactly what we need it to show.

I love the yvgeni picture and would LOVE to have it as my desktop wallpaper. I hope he releases it for such. However, for the new MGOBLOG banner, I think Minor's fits the bill. It shows Michigan football. Period. >>>>>>>>>> crawling back into my hole now..........

Any chance we can see Minor's banner fixed up before we vote on the finals? Wasn't it supposed to have the "M" and "goblog" made more even?

The best two are in the bottom bracket. I want Minor's to win, but I'm still not sure it was his best banner in the competition. Anyways, can we see the M GoBlog evened out? Go Blue
