Jim Harbaugh spoke publically about Pipkins's medical per the above story in the Detroit News. The coach clears the air on this, underscoring that it's natural for a player to not want to hear that their playing career is over, but Harbaugh's primary responsibility is the safety of his players. It's good to hear him address this directly.
Three concussions (not two), the torn knee ligament, and a neck issue. I have tremendous sympathy for Pipkins, but it does indeed sound like it's time for him to move on and take full advantage of his educational opportunity.
An interesting development to happen at the exact time we are about to announce our apparel contract. Nike chair Phil Knight, of Pimp my Middling Athletic Department fame, is stepping down. There's absolutely no way this has anything to do with us, right? I'm guessing the answer is somewhere between no and audible laughter that I even suggested it... The guy is 76. This is just weird timing.
Tennessee just left adidas and will officially begin with Nike tomorrow.
Their alternate uniformz have leaked and uh....yikes
Hopefully this isn't in violation of the MGoUniformzOrdinance code. But since tomorrow is the day and Tennessee is back in Nike.....
The entire 1986 michigan replay is now up. Hard to believe that Michigan was 4 points away from going a perfect 12-0. Enjoy.
Received an email from the Alumni Association today regarding ticket and travel packages to the Utah game from Sept. 2-4. Pretty pricey at $2,289.00 for a single.
