I am hereby recommending a change in the MGoBanner at the top of this page to reflect the success of the Men's Basketball Program and I present this proposal based on the following...
1) Hoke Springs Eternal was perfect for last year, as he was hired in January and the Spring marked the period that he galvanized the fan base as well as started building his program. As long as we all agree that Hoke (or hope) springs eternal, there is no need for it to spring further since eternity is forever.
2) The football program went through a 4 year period of turbulence (starting with "The Horror" and ending with Josh Groban), followed by a return to glory in 2011. We are simply past the whole "New Hope" thing.
3) John Beilein has just done 3 amazing things tonight... A) Kept UM in contention for a B16 title. B) Snapped a 13 game, 17 year losing streak at Illinois. C) Ended Bruce Webber's career.
4) Football season is many months away, let's celebrate some Hoops and pay tribute with a new banner. The resurrection of this program under Beilein deserves a banner... at least... if not a medal.
Please support this petition and call upon fellow MGoArtists to come up with the next graphic to celebrate Michigan Athletics.
