is there such a thing as an etsy genuis? if so, this is it.
Seriously... what has become of MGoBlog? I realize I've been away a lot (work was NOT okay with me coming back again. Yeah... that was a fun conversation.), but have we really fallen off so much? It has been MONTHS since I've seen a proper post on a most important subject! So here it is:
I heard from a reputable source today that Michigan will debut Maize jerseys against MSU in the bowl game on New Years Day. These will be worn with the Maize pants and will feature prominent display of various Adidas logo designs.
(now taking bets on number of Maize jersey threads to appear between now an NYD).
4 of 5 Rivals "college football staff" feel that the Big Ten has the most to prove - even over the Big East.
Damn - that's a slap in the face.
Your opinions please...
I say he goes over, the Patriots offense is unstoppable right now. It's been nice to see all the Michigan alum play today (no nfl sunday ticket so I'm limited.) Also, will Charles Woodson get thrown at very much? I doubt it! Not sure who to cheer for, so I'm just cheering for former Michigan players as I usually do. Go Blue!
With a lil video...

|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).

It looks as though the Georgia Athletic Department has started to look towards the midwest for a future home-and-home series, and Michigan is a school that they've preliminarily reached out to.
Preliminary discussions have taken place with Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Penn State about the prospect of one or more of them scheduling a home-and-home Georgia in the future, UGA athletics director Greg McGarity confirmed to Dawgs247.
None of those four possible opponents mentioned have ever played a game in Sanford Stadium, and only one of them – Michigan – has ever appeared on UGA’s regular season schedule. The Bulldogs have visited Ann Arbor twice in their history, losing 26-0 in 1957 and winning 15-7 in 1965.
