Mgoblue put up a video showing pictures of players in their Halloween costumes. It is fun to watch the players reactions and trying to guess who they are of.
During the Purdue game at some point apparently Michigan had to make a wholesale change to the foot gear being worn by many players. Who is the equipment Maven who can explain how many configurations are available to the team on the sidelines. Any details as to the pattern or shape or length of the cleats in question would be appreciated. Is there a difference between what is routinely worn between the Fieldhouse & the Big House. Finally, how is it that after being on the field for warm-ups we are not appropriately outfitted for a Home game ?
Freep but so what...
Michigan, "We are owning your space bases"
For those not wanting to click..."U-M put two satellites into space this morning – M-Cubed and RAX. They hitched a ride on a NASA rocket and satellite. U-M was one of three universities across the nation to send satellites into space on this rocket"
Per a sport site alert I just recieved on my phone. Fitz officially named the No 1. tailback. I know, shocker!

In Brian's Purdue game column, he says:
I sort of had the Kovacs information but it was only one unconfirmed source so I held it and hoped it was not true. Now that it is obviously true I can tell you a couple things about it: It is supposed to be an MCL sprain, which means he can barely move his leg at the moment and will be out a few weeks. When the coaches say he's "questionable" for Iowa they're in all likelihood… …lying their boo-boos off. Kovacs did not practice Tuesday but no one noticed this because they threw Matt Cavanaugh out there in #32.
But in today's Detroit News, there's this article:
As for Michigan's injuries, safety Jordan Kovacs, who missed the Purdue game with a knee injury, is "day-to-day," Hoke said. But the junior did run around a bit in practice Sunday. "I know he'll be back this week," said senior defensive lineman Ryan Van Bergen. "He was running around looking pretty good (on Sunday). The doctor said he wasn't going to play (against Purdue), but if you asked Jordan, he was going to play. We'll have him back."
This sounds considerably more promising. Hopefully his injury isn't as bad as Brian's information.
After the game as the players were celebrating on the wall with the students, I got a chance to talk to Koger, during which he told me he was going to be Mr. T for Halloween (great choice). This got me thinking: what could you see other players dressing up as for Halloween?
Obviously Gallon could be Snoop from The Wire, and Martin could go as the Hulk in I'm-Pissed-Off-And-Going-To-Sack-You-For-A-Safety Mode. What do you guys think? Any other ideas for the rest of the team?
