- Celebrate the Legend numbers on a ring of honor monument or on the empty canvas of the luxury boxes (in a tasteful manner - no halo plz, k thx bye)
- Make the legend numbers available in rotation just like any other number - if a player wants to choose #21 for their number and keep it all four years instead of a number that is not yet "legendary", then so be it. We've had more than one guy have success in #77 (etc.) without any problems. In fact, as we've seen, the opportunity to wear these historic numbers can sometimes be used as a recruiting tool.

Not sure what it says immediately under the swoosh, but in the white border, I believe it says "The University of Michigan - Just Do It"
Please let me know once you have your finished product.

If this is the case, I really hope the NCAA decides to drug test them like they did McGary.

We have the most recognizable and iconic helmet in football. It is perfect just as it is. Perfection cannot be improved.
Please don't clutter it with stickerz to make it resemble a preschool art project, or worse yet - more similar to a buckeye helmet.

I enjoyed seeing the Legends numbers on the field. I can see how managing the old system could have turned into a distraction for coaches & players, but feel there could have been a middle ground reached instead of throwing out the baby with the bath water. My suggestion:
It seems that this would solve for most of the complaints of the Legends program while still honoring said legends and not reducing the availability of jersey numbers in a sport with 85 scholarship athletes plus walk-ons.
I thought it was great that the announcers of the games would often discuss the history of the numbers and the Michigan players who made them famous. It always gave the media something positive to talk about between plays which was: generally enjoyable for nostalgic reasons, a breath of fresh air with a lot of negativity around the program, and effectively free unscripted advertising to viewers/recruits about what a great and storied program we have.

Post-college backpacking trip. Bought a flight into Paris and a flight out of Athens with a month in between and nothing else booked. Came back engaged after proposing on the fly with no ring. Still married 14 years later.

Best part about cable is the DVR. If you use Sling, how do you record so you can watch on your schedule and skip commercials?
From what I understand even using a TiVo box requires some sort of subscription fee and I don't have a computer near my TV so I can't use that.

Agreed that Redcoat makes a fine burger.
I'm now in West Michigan though and would vote Turk's burgers the best (located in Nunica - right off of I-96 on your way to Grand Haven).

If you decide to go the minimum payment route in hopes of forgiveness in 10 years, my advice would be to keep budgeting for whatever full payment you're currently making. Each month make your minimum payment and deposit/invest the rest. This way if policy changes or you fail to dot an i along the way you're not screwed; and if all goes as planned you've built up a nice savings as a bonus.

My family stayed in an awesome waterfront house last summer on Houghton Lake. Beautiful as described, but we found out the hard way that this lake has a serious problem with Swimmer's Itch. It will basically ruin your entire week. Such a shame to have a great lake and not be able to use it.
