New Official Poster for 2014/15 Football

Submitted by GoBlueOval on July 16th, 2014 at 10:40 AM

UM (and other B1G) teams have released the offical posters for the upcoming seasons. I'm a big fan of Michigan's. Between this and the cool weather in SE Michigan, I can't wait for football season. Go Blue!

1) Most likely: Hoke is sucking up to Shane to keep him happy for next year

2) Next most likely: Hoke is going to great lengths to keep Devin thinking there's a QB competition

3) Least likely: Hoke actually believes in the QB competition and is willing to risk his job on Shane.  If Hoke chooses Shane over Devin and it doesn't work out, he gone.

My best guess...

They're having trouble selling tickets for Miami (OH) this year (evidence: fireworks).  Signaling to people that is the most likely game to see the QB of the future, since Miami is probably the worst team on our schedule (0-12 last year), could be a move to sell a few tickets.  

Obviously we should hope that the team itself won't take that game for granted.  Lately we've had way too many awful experiences with supposedly bad - or actually bad - teams.

I love that they had to indicate which games are considered B1G games.  I guess all this expansion has really confused people and they can't assume everyone knows who's in the conference anymore.

Compared to some of the other B1G school posters, Michigan's is not bad.

 

My votes for most ridiculous:

Indiana: Oh god no.

 

Iowa: Only Iowa would feature a lineman dripping with sweat.

 

Maryland: Is this a Maryland poster or an Under Armour ad? 7 strategically placed Under Armour logos on this poster.

 

Purdue: LOL

Yeah, seeing these posters definitely puts ours in perspective, I would think. I actually don't mind ours at all, but then I look at Indiana's and for some reason expect to see "A Film By Jerry Bruckheimer" somewhere in the text lines above the schedule, and as for Purdue, I was thinking more "Catch Boilermaker Fever....Then Tell Precisely Where You Caught It"

Does anyone like how we have two bye weeks? They're obviously good for the players, but suck for fans. The only good thing about bye weeks is that we can just chill those days and watch football without worrying what Michigan will do.

of the B1G expansion and changing of the B1G schedule.  Teams had already scheduled their OOC opponents so the B1G schedulers had to work around that, hence the second bye week for everyone.  

Michigan's open dates work out very well I believe.  First they have an uninterupted schedule of seven games to get things rolling.  Then a break between PSU and MSU.  The second open date is in the middle of November to give them a chance to catch their breath for the last two games.  Contrast that with OSU who has both of their open dates before Michigan has their first.  We'll be rolling into Columbus relatively fresh while the Game will be their seventh straight contest since their last open date.

see laterally much better than vertically.  We see the world in wide vision while scanning horizontally...it's why we have Wide Screen TVs and not Tall Screen TVs.  That said, the horizontal can become too stretched, and I agree that the Michigan poster is quite wide.  I think the Indiana poster is a very good H:W ratio for viewing.  Wider than it is tall, the viewer can still see the entire poster without having to move his eyes.

Yeah, I started a thread a while back... But this is a good topic to re-visit and nice now that a full-res version has been released.

As a friendly reminder to all, myself included, remember there's a search option that let's you pretty easily check if a forum thread has been created  already on a given topic.
