I don't think they changed Les at all actually

stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser

so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
I have a first edition of Fielding H. Yost's book on football. It's full of play diagrams, pretty cool.
I also have a football autographed by Rob Lytle, One of my all time favorite players.
Don't judge me for judging you.
My Dad was born in Flint. He and his mother moved to Tennessee when he was 12. His dad lived in Detroit for a while though. My dad has a hat he bought from old Tiger Stadium (I dont know what it was called), the last day he lived in Michigan with his dad. Its not signed by anyone but my dad will treat it like it is to this day.

I have a signed authentic 1989 Glen Rice jersey that I got from a family friend. I hear the jersey itself is very rare so having a signed one makes it that much better!
My Dad ran into Bo Schembechler several years ago at the Detroit airport. He didn't have anything with him except for a piece of paper to get him to sign, but he got him to sign it to me. I remember when my Dad got home and gave it to me (I was probably about 10). Even then, I was the biggest Michigan fan and I knew all about Bo, but I couldn't believe it. I have that piece of paper framed and wouldn't give it up for anything.
Also, my uncle has a baseball with about 10-15 players' signatures from the '68 Tigers on it. He's still working on collecting more of the players' signatures when they do public signings, etc.

at Ypsi Normal Teacher's College. He was such a stern, even angry guy when we were kids but he has this crazy look of pleasure on his face in the photo, convinced me that he must have been fun at some point in his life. He volunteered for WWI and became famous for his ferocity (they called him Killer K. . .), came back utterly changed. Very determined and successful guy, but not always so fun to be around.
For a long time I also dragged around the punching bag my father bought me when I got beaten up once at school. He taught me how to hold my fists, and although I didn't become any good at it, it helped me imagine standing up for myself--showing I was willing to fight. I never got beat up again.
My father isn't much of a sports collector, but I have one of Shawn Hunwick's goalie sticks, which he signed for me before the team left for the Frozen Four. I wanted to get my hockey flag signed by the team in St. Paul, but stupid AT&T wouldn't let them sign anything besides the posters with the FF logo.
I also have a 50s-era Michigan pennant. No signatures, but my grandfather had it while he was in school and gave it to me when I was little. I've kept it with me wherever I've lived since, and it's hanging in my cubicle right now.

Still waiting on backup.
I have stubs from the division clincher, the pennant clincher and the series winner from "84. My going to those 3 games was remarkably lucky. Also a Bo autograph on the 1980 football bust program and a Rick Leach autographed photo (B and W) from his Soph or Jr. year.
We're gonna play with toughness, we're gonna be responsible and we're gonna play with toughness. This is Michigan.
My favorite is a mini soccer ball my son (5 yrs old) had signed by Sergio Garcia, Alvaro Quiros & Padrig Harrington at a soccer game they all played/attended before the TPC this year. it was great seeing the intereaction with the players and my son. Mine would be a series of autographs I got on a spring training tour i took witha friend when I was in 7th grade. Having most of the Reds, Red Sox, Astros, Yankees sign my autograph book & game programs were great.

3)Autographed pictures of Tim Hardaway and David Robinson
4) Autographed Domingo Ayala Domingo Beisbol Academy shirt. 4 time rookie of the year.
I have Mike Hart's mouth guard from the 2007 Spring Game. It's the most awesome (but kinda gross) thing I have. I also have a shirt signed by him. I also got a football signed by Tony Dungy at the Colts' preseason camp a couple years back.
I have an official UM game ball that several years later I got Desmond Howard to sign.
I also have one of the gloves Derrick Alexander wore in the 1993 Rose Bowl win over Washington.
Also, a Chris Webber autographed basketball. (It was cooler when I got it...)
