My problem: rabid Michigan co-worker. She has outfitted my office in Michigan crap after last 3 losses. My need: payback.

Suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Take the high road and do nothing visible. But find a dead wolverine and hide it behind her desk. In a few weeks will be hilarious.

I would do nothing the first part of the week, then by Thursday I would leave a Gopher themed message. That is my plan
This is what I have for my Michigan alumn co-worker that papered my picture with a "hail to the Victors" bumper sticker of me and Floyd and cube with Michigan crap last year.
I'm going to copy a picture of coach Kill and #2 from the Jugs reaction tweets thread, with this caption Nature boy Ric Flair "How about those Gophers" WHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

Many do not realize this but Nature boy Ric Flair actually played one season of offensive line for the Gophers, so when you hear the announcer play the WHOOOOO
now you might actually know. I'm going to not even say anything to her tomorrow just smile really big like that kid on Christmas morning type smile.

Thanks in advance.

A post-it note with the phrase:" Situation normal", or "The new reality" posted on her monitor would be a nice subtle touch.

Going big, A large banner saying Gold Country with a/ several large photo(s) of the team hoisting the jug would also be nice. Wish I was clever enough to tell you how to get the Rouser to play when she entered her work area, or how to hack her computer so that it would sleep early and scroll the score. The last one I actually did to a Badger/Packer fan.

Don't say a frikking word. Let her suffer while she is waiting for you to rib her. Silence is Golden. So are the Gophers.

Next time you greet her at work, say "Go Green".

If she doesn't respond, then say "Go White".

Depends what your long range plans with her are.

If she is a Michigan fan, she is probably as good looking as a Wolverine, and meaner than a Wolverine, so pass on future obligations.

Send her some maroon and gold flowers with a simple message expressing your sympathies. Then when all office hens run over to ask her about the flowers, she'll have to explain exactly what they are for.

Get a Michigan themed pen. Stick it up your ass and anonymously put it on your co-workers desk. Later, enter her office and ask "have you noticed the pens have an odd smell"; and let the fun begin!

Figure out a way to get screen shots of all the closeups of the crowd towards the end of the game with their blank stares and paper her cubicle with it.

In '86 when we won I was in grad school. Another student was from Michigan. On that Monday she told me that when she heard the score Saturday evening on the radio she assumed that it had to be from a Minnesota-Duluth / Northern Michigan game. The idea that we could beat Michigan did not occur to her. Their arrogance is pretty much unmatched. Any win vs. Michigan is to be enjoyed.

Blame it on the ink in the pen!!!

This. But instead of hanging them all up at once, just randomly put them up all week.

This might be even more fitting

You have time to think something up since your co-worker and most in the State of Michigan will be calling in sick tomorrow (I'm guessing the MI crisis call center is busy). If you ask me, a signed 8x12 glossy photo of Hoke might cheer her up.

I am not sure what the debate is, there is only one answer. Take a dump on her desk.
