is just a rumor.
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
is just a rumor.
The starting QB should always be #69. QB recruits would love that! We would sign any QB we want.
jersey numbers. Who gets 77 next year?
remember everyone said he's fat and slow so were moving him to tackle.
The main problem I have with legends jerseys is not that it is a novel idea or a potential honor for the players but what happens when a player wants to stick with his number? We have at least four of these jerseys now? You keep swapping numbers to legends long enough and eventually you will have a player that wants to turn it down.
We all can thank Braylon Edwards and the saga centered around the #1 jersey for giving the athletic department the idea for the legends jerseys.
One final point, the legends jersey is a gimmick to push Michigan jersey sales. Few people will buy a jersey that has Tom Harmon with the #98. Millions will buy a Devon Garner jersey with #98 on the back and lets charge a little bit more because its a "legends jersey."
I would buy a Harmon jersey.
I have a #10 Tom Brady jersey I got in 1999. To me THAT'S a legends jersey. Not a gimmicky new #98 with a special 'uniformz' styling and being sold for $150.
Devon Garner. Lulz.
Thanks for being a douche.
Yes, I could see this jersey selling with a modern Michigan players name on it.
I know a lot of the mgoblog posters would buy a Harmon jersey with Harmon's name on it but we are a small percentage of the total fanbase.
I see two post critiquing my spelling Devon Gardner and my hyperbole regarding the sale of jersies but ignoring the main points.
Ohio is a populous state.
I hate the legends jersey numbers thing, it makes no sense to me. But, for one game, I think this is pretty awesome.
Lets just play football and win.
Who is the player on this team that is most like "ole 98"???
I can't think of anybody that'd be a better pick than Devin Gardner.
Are we still rehashing this topic?
YYAAAAYYY!!! I am really excited to see him run out of the tunnel wearing 98. I only see this is a definite positive. (Including added Heisman attention)
Just wanted to add that I've been saying it would be him in about every thread about the topic.
Why would this add to any Heisman hype? Very few people outside Ann Arbor even know who Tom Harmon was.
...had Harmon #16 on their list of greatest college football players ever, just behind John Elway and just ahead of Bronko Nagurski, Jim Brown and Dick Butkus. Those are names that people know.
I don't live in Ann Arbor and I honestly don't know a single college football fan that doesn't know who Tom Harmon was. Maybe my friends and I are just old....
I said attention not hype. It wont make him have better numbers but itll add to the media attention about the number, thus DG. And media attention is half the battle . Everyone is going to remember the QB that wears 98 even if they don't remember his name. Nomsayin'?
I can see the College GameDay special about it now ... especially in a big win tonight.
if we are doing #98 (we are) then there is no other player Id rather see wearing it than Devin. He is electric, charasmstic, a team playker, leader, and a Michigan Man. AND it would be FUCKING AWESOME to see a QB with that #. The only one in the country for sure.
This will totally confuse Notre Dame for the whole game.
you people care too much about jerseys. get a life and have another beer.
You'd post this more often. You've been silent on the topic
Devin is NOT wearing 98....Espn just showed him coming down tunnel in his #12 jersey
disregard last post lol
