Appalachian St. Wallpaper

Submitted by Blue Indy on August 18th, 2014 at 3:34 PM

For those of you who enjoy rotating wallpapers during the season to mock highlight our weekly opponents, I thought I'd submit one for Appalachian State. I hope to have a new one each Monday (yeah, I know this one is early), similar to what momuMental has done in seasons past. In my opinion, his work is second to none (if you haven't yet had the privilege, check it out) but I believe he only does wallpapers for marquee opponents now. If that's still the case, I'll continue to offer a wallpaper on Mondays. If not, I'll kindly cease and desist :-).

For the Appalachian State game, I struggled with whether to dub it "the Horror II" or not. On the one hand, it's awefully catchy and reminds us why Dave Brandon even thought this game would be mildly interesting. On the other, it seems to suggest the possibility that this year's game could have a similar outcome which... [insert curse word]. In the end, like Brandon, I went with brand recognition. Without further ado, I give you:

Um, no.

But since you have skills, perhaps you can modify this to make the tank maize and blue with a block M, and the remains of the car whatever it is App State looks like:


"Putting App State in our fucking rearview mirrors for good"

I would put that on my screen.

"I'm no art critic, but I know what I hate."

(I think the graphic is well-done, but the concept is not suited to Michigan fans.  I'd expect to see this from an MSU website, except the spelling on your wallpaper is correct.)

I really do think it's very well done, and hope you stay in the wallpaper game.  Maybe my aversion to the wallpaper is I'm still in denial that Michigan ever played (and ever would play) Appalachian State.  You see, your wallpaper perpetuates a rumor about a game that never happened and never will.

I might actually use that just because the picture looks so damn good and I'm incredibly pumped for football to be back. I've also been using the MBB bench reaction to the infamous Burke 3 against Kansas. I love that background and all, but I think it might be time to move on.

This is probably one of the best done things that I want absolutely nothing to do with...

For the life of me I'll never understand why DB decided to schedule a Kobayashi Maru just as the collective memory of The Horror was just starting to fade at least on campus... then again there was the giant noodle...
