19 is my fave #. Now Funch has a boring regular TE #.
Gallon (21), Avery (11), Funchess (87) get Legends Jerseys
Pointless? Tom Brady's number is pointless?
Serious? I like Gallon and all but people aren't going to think of Gallon when they see #10, they're going to think of Brady.
Did anyone throw a fit when we deprived Braylon Edwards and Mario Manningham from making #17 and #86 "legendary"?
Is pretty fuckin legendary.
I am completely fine with this the same as I was last year. Raises awareness of the past players and I think players are excited at the chance to wear them. Hoke has clearly shown a willingness to give it to a wide range of players from seniors who've worked hard (Avery, Moore) to seniors who've produced well on the field (Kovacs, Gallon, Roundtree) to younger players that show great potential (Ryan and Funchess) and Morgan got one who is a solid contributor but not quite the hype of the other guys.
The hand wringing over this is pretty funny at this point. Your number 10 jersey can still be your Gallon jersey. He did wear that number when you bought the damn thing.
Who will get the 98 jersey when it is rolled out at UTL 2?
I am guessing Beyer.
That would be...legendary!
Ok these are lame now. Last year it was okay for some reason (except it wasn't, Kovacs to 11 was, weird) but now it's getting old. Gallon is No. 10 dammit.
Bitch, bitch, bitch is all that goes on here. At least on Saturday you'll have football to bitch about.
You're not just now realizing this?! Heh. It's gotta be a passion thing, right? Football, though, is near and thank the Lord for that; I think we can all agree, we need some football to bitch about.
Of people that don't like it. I don't like the way the patches look and I don't like switching numbers. There has to be a better way to honor these past players.
Put me down for hating how the patches look. The idea is cool and there's nothing bad about it, but the idea of new numbers becoming just as lengendary as the current crop of offically sanctioned legend numbers is one reason we all watch Michigan football. This program doesn't mean that won't happen, but it does seem to make it a little less likely.
I don't like it, I don't understand it, and it's really put a damper on my Tuesday.
"They stank, and I hate em"
If I were these young men I would be honored to be chosen to wear a MICHIGAN legends jersey. Congratulations to all 3 of them!!! I love the fact they honor the former players by honoring the current players.
If I were a current player who had had a good career like Gallon or Kovacs, I wouldn't want a legends number. I know they're trying to play off of the #1 mystique, but it is not the same. It's just not. I didn't get it when it started, and I sure don't get it now. Actually, come to think of it, Gallon should have said, "I'll switch, but only if its #1."
Yeah screw that number worn by the smaller wide receiver who won a Heisman and later a Super Bowl MVP. No way Gallon should think that's cool.
This sucks. I absolutely HATE the legends thing at this point. Let's do the right thing and limit their use to the homecoming game. The patches are distracting and now I'm gonna have to remind myself that #10 is NOT Jeremy Gallon & #19 is NOT Funchess.
I really feel like this takes away these current players' ability to leave their own fingerprint on the program.
Between this & uniformz, I'm starting to develop a strong dislike for David Brandon.
Maybe opponents will also forget that #10 is NOT Jeremy Gallon & #19 is NOT Funchess.
