Football Display Case
...talks about how UConn hasn't been in contact and how they're out. (HT: UMHoops)
Jalen, Burke, and Simmons.
Mike Hart the heavy favorite in the trolling competition
just what the Pistons need: a third string center. Joe Dumars was replaced by a mean ol' alien a few years back you guys.
this would be a close approximation of hypothetical graduation speech
no you guys they're just super pumped about COLLLLLLLLLLLLEGE
not a surprise
premature congrats. One thing we can be sure of: he'll take fewer asinine penalties than Abdelkader
Thanks to ugly transitions between Fulmer/Kiffin/Dooley/Davis, Tennessee is on the edge of APR penalties for football.
i approve of this message
strong indictment of AAU right heah
Glockner sides with justice
a good cause, and a good time
good job gents
And we are surprised at this because...
They also think matching nude colored socks and shoes is a good look, as well. Need I say anymore?

I was actually curious about this, so thanks for sharing the discovery. I think the shirts started appearing sometime around Thanksgiving but I was always curious as to where this came from. Both the slogan and the fusebox idea combine for a pretty cool way to instill team focus and get everyone working towards a common goal both in practice and in games. As we saw today in the polls and indeed throughout the season, the focus is obviously reaping rewards.

Is this just a Michigan thing or do other Adidas schools have these shirts also?
...sorry, just thought I'd share.
“True loyalty is that quality of service that grows under adversity and expands in defeat. Any street urchin can shout applause in victory, but it takes character to stand fast in defeat. One is noise — the other, loyalty.”
Won? Cool. Now I can relax and enjoy the play.
I was watching the game last night while listening to the audio on Mgoblue and Matt Shepard claimed that the WE stood for Wolverine Excellence (Integrity, Unity, Passion, Diligence, and Appreciation, which you can see on the poster at the 2:19 mark of the Bacari Alexander BTN The Journey video) and the On just meant On. So basically meaning if the team follows those five things they will be ON...

I really hope the people who are hating on this are not in any sort of leadership position of any kind. Most organizations, including sports teams, have sayings or acronyms they hold own to as a rallying point. This wasn't forced on them by Adidas, this was teamwork at its finest.
I'd love to know what each player's word is on the fuse box. Great idea.
I read in an article this week that Mitch's was "Enthusiasm"
Streaming UM games early Sunday morning from Korea, since 2007
What to do with the rest of the Big Ten....
We On and When Everyone Operates 'Nsync.
If We On wasn't part of the meaning, why wouldn't it just be WEOIS (when everybody operates in sync?)
Now with Rocket-arm passing action!
In the first half of the OSU game, it was WE OI.
Like in Kung Pow
So hot. Milk was a bad choice.
This kinda reminds me of when my friend's son was a Cub Scouts - the group was called 'Webelos' which (to my slight amusement) is supposed to mean 'We'll Be Loyal Scouts'
At any rate, I'm cool with our WE ON motto. Why tinker with what works, right? Even if it wasn't my cup of tea, there are *far* greater crimes we could hang Adidas for before this.

About this team is coach "cheese". His tweets and metaphors are like weak s---talk and painfully cheesy. I am hopeful its tongue jn cheek. As long as players like him I don't really care but recent exposure is kind of putting coach Bacari out front on btn etc. Rest is all good.
Because my 7 year old daughter asked me what it meant last night and I had no clue.
For my privacy, my new username is "non-Oriental non-Andrew"
Bacari Alexander's doing.

"Apparently the staff created a U-M fuse box in the locker room in which each player has a key word they focus on during the season."
I hope someone educated these kids on what a fuse box is. Fuse boxes were long gone long before all of them were born.
Maybe the staff created a U-M breaker panel instead.
A lifetime of happiness! No man alive could bear it; it would be hell on earth!

I thought ebonics, atleast at first, was a way to define African American Vernacular English without the negitive conentation of Nonstandard Negro English. To get recognized exceptence for the language that a great deal of people speak on a daily basis. But Hey, you know what they say: see a broad to get dat booty yak 'em...leg 'er down a smack 'em yak 'em
