“You say Goodbye, and I say Hello”
This is the ninth entry of the 2009 MGoShirt Alert, a design project that will enable MgoBlog readers to vote for upcoming designs in the brand spankin’ new MGoBlogStore.
As I discussed earlier this week, I sat down on Saturday morning and watched a DVR of the Friday night BTN UM practice, and fired up the laptop at the same time in case an idea or two came to me. It was clear that above all other topics, you all collectively wanted an MGoBlog insider shirt to feature Tacopants, and I had just asked all of you for Tacopants ideas on the previous day. It's a tricky concept, because Tacopants is very much a Henne/Coach Carr regime thing, and how could we possibly tie it together with the new and improved Rodriguez-era Wolverines?
Amidst the nasal inflections of Dave Resvine I came up with this design-- acknowledging the new, and signing off on the old. I've tried to avoid doing front-and-back designs, but this one pretty much demands it and might affect the final price. Naturally, this shirt is a bit dependent on the fact premise that Forcier will not suck and/or throw the ball like a 19-yr. old Chad Henne. It does put a certain amount of pressure on the young Californian as well-- which pretty much sums up this entire offseason nicely, if I do say so. Ha.
Now, in the event that Forcier loses the job to Denard Robinson, I've prepared this similar alternate version.
And... in the (gulp) scenario that neither are competent and the #8 returns under center, I give you this.
So, 2009 is here... thanks for the memories Tacopants. Now hit the road.
So, time to vote-- on the Forcier shirt, of course. What do you guys think?

***** Five Stars: Tate The Forcier starts day one and never looks back.
**** Four Stars: Tate can't hold off the speed&talent of Denard Robinson.
*** Three Stars: Nick Sheridan is asked to again drop the clipboard and not suck.
** Two Stars: A very nervous Nader Furrha is handed the keys to the offense.
* One Star: Some guy named Kennedy takes the field. And we don't wake up.
Yesterday saw the last of any canine biology. I will say that the eee... Barwis shirt just looked pretty gay, and I even made a SuperGay version for all of the man-crushers out there, but on the sheer basis of defaming the entire Michigan fan base, I refused to use it. So that's your Barwis-- sorry. Besides, we already have Barwis's Gym. Tomorrow we'll be going with something nice and basic, and I have another Friday fun activity for all of you to take part in before the milk and cookies. So I'll see you then for another exciting edition of-- MGoShirt Alert!
