Video: Welcome Back Paul
Great job gentlemen! Now let's go get that Big Ten Championship trophy!
Can anyone tell me what the story is with celebrating with the Paul Bunyan trophy? I was thinking it was weird that the trophy never made it out of the tunnel because I knew I'd seen it carried around on the field before, but then I googled Paul Bunyan Trophy and the only pictures of players parading it around the field were of MSU. Are they the only ones that do this for some reason?
This is Michigan fergodsake.
I don't really know, but that might be the reason.
Till there was 5 seconds left.
It's always been that way. I think the trophy itself has always been more important to Sparty than to us. There were times in the 50's and 60's where even after a victory, we left it behind on the field and MSU kept it and even painted their losing score on it to keep it going.
MSU parades it around the field like a Super Bowl trophy. MIchigan pulls it out only in the locker room (unlike the little brown jug). I never once heard Bo talk about the trophy even though he beat MSU 17 times. The only thing Lloyd ever said about the trophy was that it's the ugliest trophy in college football.
I'm happy to have the trophy because it means a win for us but it's really a dumb trophy and not really needed. All those made up trophies are just lame copycats of the little brown jug.
Put it back in the basement of Schembechler. I hope we never see that ugly thing ever again.
It's certainly ugly, but it's a sight for sore eyes after the last four years. There's been this sad empty space in the trophy room in Schembechler Hall since the '08 game.
May you never again have to journey to hell.
I believe the Op means Welcome Home Paul.
and some Michigan fan has already updated the page:
There is no trophy for the winner of Michigan - OSU. How can it be a rivalry?!?
Nice win, good game, amazing effort.
There once was a trophy for that game. It was called the Big Ten Championship trophy.
Ohio gives their players gold pants so they can sell them later or trade them for tats.
One of many ways those rats in the toilet state have found a way to bypass ncaa rules.
60 minutes. Now, beat Nebraska!
