"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
Packers-Bears on right now, Jets-Steelers on at 6:30.
Aaron Rogers just threw an epic goal-line interception, returned by Bears D to mid-field.
This is my first MGoBoard thread discussion - type thing, and I just want to start off with GO BLUE!
But as I'm watching the Packers / Bears right meow, I just think back to how amazing (a-MAIZE-ing?) Charles Woodson was when he played for Michigan. Not to take anything away from his pro career, but what he did in college was pretty epic.
Which brings me to my question. I haven't heard anything about it, but when will #2 be retired for Michigan Football? We have #11, #47, #48, #87, and #98 retired already, all of which are great players, but Woodson could arguably be better than any of them (except perhaps Harmon).
Are we waiting for his pro career to finish before we can honor him? And that being said, what about Desmond Howard? I have no idea who would make these kind of decisions, but it sure seems like Woodson definitely deserves to have #2 retired.
Your thoughts on #2 or #21 being retired? Also, is #48 retired purely because Ford was president, or did he actually deserve to have the number retired?

|Big Ten+ Recruiting Class Rankings|
|Rank||School||# Commits||Rivals Avg||Scout Avg||ESPN Avg|
Rivals rankings are on the "RR" scale, which is on a scale from about 5 to about 6.1. Unrated prospects are given a 5.1 rating, on par with the worst of any Big Ten commit last year. Scout is on the 5-star system (unranked players earn 1 star), and ESPN uses grades out of 100 (unranked is 40 or 45, except JuCo players, who aren't included in the average).

I don't think this has been mentioned but I have a question for any of the recruiting insiders (TomVH, DG Destroys, etc.) about a possible recruit. I have heard a rumor that Brady Hoke and Co. may be recruiting Boston College QB commit Christian Suntrup. Is there any legitimacy behind that?
