MLive spoke with Don Canham's widow and it's obvious she's not happy with what's happening at Michigan.
Recently, the widow of the “father of modern college athletics directors” has begun to add her voice to the chorus expressing concern that the powerhouse built by Canham is in jeopardy of losing its luster.
“I’m just devastated that his lifetime at the school—he was there for 50 years as a student, a coach and an athletic director—to see that his legacy is going down the drain, that’s what I’m angry about,” Margaret Canham-Keeley said.
It's worth a read to see that even Canham, who was an innovator his time, got some pushback but obviously ended up being a pioneer as an athletic director.
MSU loses soundly; OSU losing soundly; we are trounced. Elsewhere, B1G teams lose or sneak past weak small-conference squads. The onslaught from the critics is going to be merciless tomorrow. I'm not sure there's been a weekend this humiliating that I can remember.
I can't believe I am rooting for an OSU miracle at this late hour to salvage the conference's reputation.
Final wallpaper until Notre Dame and probably the last "schedule"-themed wallpaper I will do until basketball season. I was working on honing some skills creating "embroidered" logos and decided to give the ol' vintage wolverine logo a go. I like how it turned out (it actually kind of looks embroidered!) and I think it may fit the taste of MGoBlog a bit more than my previous schedule wallpaper.

I know this should be a diary, but I don't want to create another diary for a new wallpaper. I'll eventually consolidate all the wallpapers into a big diary post so I'm not taking up a bunch of space, but right now I'm exhausted (got on a creative binge and couldn't stop), so I'll do that later. In the meantime, enjoy the latest fruits of my labor. I'm extremely proud of this work (all done in illustrator/photoshop - except the UM logo). I love the art deco feel and so I decided to do a cool "Metropolis"-looking wallpaper for Michigan Stadium. Let me know what you think. Constructive criticism is welcome - I know this style isn't everyone's cup of tea. Enjoy!
Ok, ladies and gentlemen - mostly gentlemen, let's be honest - here is my newest creation. I saw the Butkus/Lombardi nomination picture of Jake and immediately thought it looked like a Captain America style shot. So that's what I did. Behold, Jake Ryan, "The Autumn Soldier." I hope you all like it. 27 days until JMFR hits the field in glory. As always, constructive criticism and/or suggestions for future work is appreciated. Mobile and assorted other formats to come as they are finished. Enjoy!
