New Season, New Banner

Why yes, that is a new banner gracing the pages of Maize & Blue Nation! After many various versions, I have finally landed on one that I like enough to take us into the 2008 season. I like to keep the design simple. And I wasn't going to go with an image, but after finding this one of the sky above the 2005 UM-Penn State game, I had no choice but to go with it.

What a great image. This shot means a lot to me, not only as a Michigan fan, but as one who was at that game, and got to witness one of the most amazing moments in Michigan Football history.

Ok, you asked for it...

However, the shot was not taken by me. I had to get permission from the man behind the camera...a member of that year's Michigan Marching Band. Luckily, he was more than gracious to allow me to use it. So, if you have a moment, head on over to his Flickr page to view some more great shots.

Also, just announced, LB Shawn Crable has signed with the New England Patriots. No details have been released.

And for those looking to catch a lesser home game or travel to Happy Valley or Minneapolis this season to catch the Maize & Blue, individual game tickets for certain contests go on sale Wednesday at 8:30AM.

Home games, Utah (8/30), Miami OH (9/6), Toledo (10/11) go up for $50 & Northwestern (11/15) for $55. While road games at Penn State (10/18) and at Minnesota (11/8) go for $61 and $45 respectively.
