Meta: New Banner

Submitted by seegoblu on August 26th, 2013 at 11:27 AM
While it's nice to see a new banner (and sad to move on from Denard) I don't love the generic banner for 2013. It's not an iconic pix and sort of contra to the caption, no? Is a (bobbled?) catch "Manball"?

I'm typically very critical of myself as a photographer, but I was really proud of this photo. Here is the original for anybody that cares.

Too many people bitching and negging fellow UM fans here about everything.  Hopefully a fresh dose of college football starting in 3 days will be the remedy.

I don't like change.  Tradition and Manball.    Cool that Gallon gets a turn, but I'd like to see a Brady Hoke double point up there for the next 15-20 years.  Turning to Brady Hoke seems to be working out for us so far.

I like the Iowa connection, or any connection to the teams in the West Division whom we will be playing sporadically in exchange for yearly showdowns with Rutgers and fucking Maryland.

and since I am sitting at the beach with my feet in the sand and some beers in the cooler next to me, I'm not sure what more I could do to chill further.

What about my original post was not chill? I just expressed minimal disappointment in the banner, that's all.

Can't wait for Saturday.

to agree with the OP.  It is a good picture, but the banner as a whole does look just kind of off the shelf from Banners R Us.  And what about Gallon in particular would make him the face of the season?  I don't know, seems a little shaky.

I will count myself in as among those who like the new banner, primarily because the photo rather fits with the "Manball Is +EV" slogan, in my opinion. It seems fairly relevant considering how this team should look moving forward.

lulz I didn't even notice it until 15 minutes of Blog reading (clicked this post to see what the IDEAS were going to be for a new banner).  However, +EV...that's like a grading for Vinyl reconds on Ebay, correct?
