META - If you were Brian, the next MGoBlog banner would feature.....

Submitted by Butterfield on January 2nd, 2013 at 1:51 PM

The "Kneeling Denard" banner was an awesome choice for DRob's final season, especially when paired with the "This love's for gentlemen only" tagline.   Previously, the Hoke banner from last year was excellent although the "Your shoes sparkle in the moonlight fancy dancer" tagline was over my head and didn't turn up any google results. 

Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, assumes you are in the shoes of the esteemed proprietor of this here blog who is faced with an urgent need to redesign the banner ASAP.  What say you, MGoCommunity?  Who/what would be featured on the next banner and what does the tagline read?

If it were up to me, I'd go with a picture of Jake Ryan and his glorious coif coupled with a tagline along the lines of "Resting his head on a pillow made of concrete" - a lyric from Pearl Jam's "Even Flow". 

EDIT:  Wasn't even thinking along the lines of a basketball banner since it's never been done here before, but the posters who suggested it may be on to something.  A good one might be a picture of Trey Burke's (supposedly) vacated dorm room that caused panic last year with the tagline "Psych" or "Sike", however you youngsters spell it these days.

of our best/favorite/ect players either currently (ala, Jake Ryan-Trey Burke-Trouba (hockey love)- and maybe DG?) orrrrrr we go old school Mt. Rushmore with people along the likes of Des, CWood, Comrie, Turco, Barry Larkin, Brady, Cazzie, ETC.) Itd be nice to incorporate all 4 major sports.

How about a picture of a 'Good' Borges and a 'Bad/Evil' Borges with a tagline of, "It's a love/hate relationship".

I mean threads about him do dominate the board during the season.

I echo the basketball banner idea, for the first time I can remember it actually makes sense to have one (hooray!)

After that though, if we don't have a great one lined up for next football season I wouldn't have any problem going back to the Hoke banner, that one was 100% pure class, and really awesome work by blog banner standards. I'd much rather have that than any generic/poorly made banner.

I think basketball deserves solo placement.  That program has absolutely gone through the crapper and is now ranked #2 in the country . . . it's an incredible story and really satisfying for the long-suffering fans.  If you were a kid in the late '80s/early '90s, as I was, you probably followed Michigan football and basketball about equally.  Football didn't definitively become the #1 sport in my mind until the basketball program collapsed and it was downright painful to be a fan (I still followed them, but it was hard not to become disengaged after awhile).  It's an awesome feeling now to have them back where I feel they belong.

I want a montage or photoshopped image of the face of a  "Michigan Man".  He would have at least, Jake Ryan's hair, Mealer's beard, paired with Hardaway's facial reactions

Kate Upton....come on, given a choice between an afternoon with Kate, or a game against UConn and a DVR?

But if you had to put something Michigan, I'd have to go with Denard.
