Mike Lantry, 1972
While this article may not add much to the conversation for us mgoblog addicts, it sure makes me proud to be a Wolverine...
I have to say, Brandon may be just what we need to bring the fan base and football program back together.
Who is the big loser during the Conference Expansion process? The SEC is.
No, it's not because of what schools they pick up or don't pick up.
It's because of the merciless coast-to-coast holy-ass beating the SEC's academic reputation is taking during the Expansion process.
Article after article, post after post inevitably points out that the SEC is not even under consideration for big fish like Texas because of its deplorable academics.
I get that the SEC Coaches and Athletic Directors don't seem to care, but man if I'm an SEC university president, I gotta be cringing every time I open a newspaper or click on a link.
Meanwhile, the Big 10 is constantly referenced as the top of the academic food chain for major conferences. So much so that schools are weeded out based on academics before any conversations even start . . . the now famous "Tech problem".
No wonder the SEC hates the Big 10.
So next time an SEC slappy tells you that the Big 10 can't keep up with their speed, remind them that when it really counted, the SEC couldn't keep up with the Big 10's smarts.
The verdict is in: The Big 10 may be slow, but the SEC is STUPID.
Nothing I hate more than Sunday evenings, even on a beautiful night like this. Boring as hell getting mentally ready for the week ahead. Anyway, to kill some type, I thought I'd ask this question:
What are your favorite college football uniform sets (other than Michigan:)
Florida State for me.
The helmets with the stickers are awesome. The colors, and several possible uniform combos (Maroon, Black, Gold and White), make it for me. I also like the seminole logo on the pants.
They have the sickest uniforms in college football other than Michigan.
If you could own any Michigan throwback jersey (regardless of sport), what would you choose? For the sake of originality, it's tough to pass on 95' home jersey of Biakabutuka.

I'm sure that most of us who have been out of college for a little while have some amount of money saved for retirement--or you're blowing it on hard drugs. Seriously though, anyone with stock in Fed Ex may want to reconsider.
I'm all for random super rich dudes blowing their cash, but this article is talking about using 10 million a year from Fed Ex to sponsor Memphis's inclusion in a BCS AQ conference. I'd be beyond livid if I were a shareholder. It's one thing to pay for a company name on the Orange Bowl, but I don't know that any team is worth 10 million a year to a company that doesn't make sporting goods. To contrast, Michigan signed their Adidas contract for about 7.5 million.
