"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Didn't see a thread started yet, so here ya go:
Miami (YTM) @ Pitt on ESPN2
Marshall @ W Kentucky on FS1
#15 Navy @ Houston on ABC
WMU @ #24 Toledo on CBSSN
Happy Football everyone!
I think we've had this conversation, in one forum or another, previously, but it's the Friday before THE GAME and another potential candidate (#5) has an opportunity to add to his fledgling resume for consideration tomorrow.
I'm glad Desmond is finally receiving his much-deserved recognition, but if his number had been retired when originally planned, we wouldn't have been able to see Junior Hemingway rock the #21 in Maize and Blue.
The question: Should a MICHIGAN player's number be retired, or should there be an alternative form of recognition that would also allow future Michigan greats to add to the number's legacy? (Ring of Honor or other)
Bonus Question: Can you name other notable Wolverines that have worn a retired number previous to its retirement?
Sounds like Charles is one of Jabrills biggest fans. We are so lucky to have, and to have had these 2 athletes play for Michigan. Let's hope Peppers is given the chance to shine tomorrow in all 3 phases!
Sorry, didn't realize the link directed to a paywall, blue israel was gracious enough to forma good link a couple posts below.
This is an extremely mysterious article that I found when doing some google news archive searching for an expansion of my SuperGuide I'm working on.
I did some research and found an MVictors piece on it that has no explanation for why it didn't happen.
Check this out
That article was penned in the defunct Ann Arbor News back in October of 1997.
It was supposed to be retired in 1998. Approved and everything. If anyone on here remembers hearing anything on why this didn't happen, I'd love to hear it.
Regardless, #21 finally gets retired on Saturday.
