Inspired by this thread. So what do you think are the best nicknames in U-M sports history? What are some of the ones you grew up with? What were the worst/lamest? Any and all sports, of course.
Obviously, we have nicknames like Shoelace (awesome), Tractor (RIP), and the Butterfly (ugh). Graham Brown was known as Moose. I remember whenever Jerod Ward scored, they'd put up the "Hot Rod" graphic in Crisler.
This is also an education in Michigan sports history for me, as I was pretty much clueless about it until I started attending U-M in the mid-90s. Before that, I was all about the Georgia Bulldogs and Atlanta pro sports, having been born and raised in the ATL.
The local paper in Iowa City is reporting an offer by the Hawkeyes to Brian Allen, a freshman(!) offensive lineman(!). I have never heard of offering an offensive lineman that early, I am sure it sets a new benchmark. However, Kirk loves wrestlers on his oline, which this kid is a good one, and has enough street cred with oline prospects so what the hell. I think Lane offered a scholly to a seventh grade QB so I guess nothing should surprise me at this point.
Columbus Dispatch reporting vehicle sold for $13k. Still excessively low for the vehicle but the conflicting reports, and questions regarding why it was submitted as $0 a year later, still keeps the pressure on the dealership and the salesman to disclose all the facts and cooperate with any federal investigations that reveal facts...
Former Ohio State linebacker Thaddeus Gibson didn't understand why his purchase of a used Chrysler 300C was listed at $0 in documents disclosed in a media report, since he was still making payments on the vehicle.
Now, newly uncovered documents appear to back up Gibson -- to the tune of $13,700.
In an initial report on Ohio State's investigation of car sales to athletes and their families, the Dispatch cited documents showing a purchase price of $0 for Gibson's car.
But on Wednesday, the newspaper reported it obtained a previous title on the vehicle listing the purchase price as $13,700 for a sale dated June 27, 2007 and financed through Huntington National Bank.
The title listing the purchase price as $0 was dated March 6, 2008 and listed the same bank as the lender, according to the report.
Important to note: car salesman was receiving tickets to sporting events from OSU/players. This would qualify him as a booster, meaning any impropriety, however slight, would take this to Ed Martin town.
says there's more stuff coming out.

Rivals released it's list today of 58 recruits that didn't make the Rivals 250 but were still awarded a 4* ranking. I thought there was no way Wormley would be left off this list but he was. Pharaoh Brown did receive a 4* ranking however as did Jarrod Wilson, safety prospect from Akron Buchtel that M is recruiting.
