Wallpaper Season (Basketball) - January Schedule

Submitted by jonvalk on December 28th, 2012 at 10:50 PM

Hello, again, MGoBloggers!  It's been an interesting December, full of highs and pitfalls - cliffs, if you will.  One thing has been steady and true - the basketball team continues to win.  To help aid in the process of defining one's life's worth through wins and losses, I've created another "calendar" wallpaper.  This one is for, as the title suggests, the January slate of Michigan basketball.  Before a bunch of curmudgeons (you know who you are) point it out, this is obviously not the whole team being featured.  This is who I believe should be the starting crew the rest of the way.  If you don't like it, well that's, like, your opinion, man.  Anyway, I hope you like it.  As always, constructive criticism and/or requests are welcome, as I'm always looking for new ideas to continue to hone my relatively primitive Adobe skills.

NOTE: Mobile version will come as I get time.  Maybe tonight if I get a bout of insomnia - who knows?

EDIT: I took the easy way out for the mobile version for now.  I'll ask forgiveness later, but it'll do until I can put some real effort into an alternative mobile version.

Thanks, I love it and it's my phone background. But...

*Ohio State

Am I the only one who has grown tired of this meme? I know fearless leader has eschewed the shortened version, but the MGoDenizens seem to keep it alive, unfortunately.

....but I fear that we are in the minority. 

I am embarassed that it is used so loosely now.  It's not clever.  It's not trendy.  It's childish and asinine and our fan base comes across as either too ignorant or too stubborn to let it die. 

It may have started out as an innoncent alternative to vocalizing "Ohio State" (which is silly in istelf), but it has festered into something out of control.  It has reached the level of scUM, O$U, Moo U, etc....

For you jonvalk. After watching the Iowa game, I had the idea of a wallpaper of a Maize and Blue Canadian flag with Stauskas shooting that pretty jumper in front of it. I don't have the skills to pull of a quality look for it, but I thought maybe you would like to take the idea and run with it. Provided you have time to do so. Just an idea and hopefully it's one you like and can do something with. Keep up the stellar work sir!
