First script ohio in history by the MMB
Evolution of the Block M
|4 days 5 hours ago||Story behind this photo is||
Story behind this photo is interesting-
In 1958, Michigan was slumping through in their longest Big Ten Championship drought in history. Michigan wound up finishing the year 2-6-1 with both of their wins coming by 1-point. The year included a 55-24 loss to Northwestern.
Head coach Bennie Oosterbaan finally decided to call it a career after a rough tenure as head coach. It was a great start to his career going 9-0-0 and becoming the first first year head coach to win an AP National Championship, but he won it with Crisler's players.
His recruiting strategy was that players who want to come to Michigan, will come to Michigan because it's Michigan and there's no reason to go anywhere else. He did get some greats like Rom Kramer and Jim Pace, but never put together a whole team by himself that won a Big Ten title.
His decision to retire was made public sometime during that 1958 season. Possibly after that loss to Northwestern.
Michigan went down to play Ohio in their final game of the season. ohio was a heavy favorite and ranked #11. Michigan outplayed them, led them at one point 14-0 but wound up losing the game 20-14.
Despite not winning the game, Michigan players carried their head coach off the field. It was Oosterbaan's final ride after a 34 year career at Michigan as a player, an assistant coach and a head coach.

Head Coaches from 1929-1989.
Harry Kipke, Fritz Crisler, Bennie Oosterbaan, Bump Elliott and Bo (as you mentioned).
They did another photo like this with Bump, Bo, Moe and Lloyd but I can't seem to find it right now. A damn shame that they won't be able to do another one of these kinds of photos without a coach missing.
That photo was on the cover of the program from The Game in 1969.

You're in denial about Nike. They put out horrific-looking things with their idiotic little sayings on them. Also: pro combat. I don't think I need to post photos of those infamous disasters.
You can be superstitious about an outfitter. That doesn't change the fact that 2007, Michigan Football's last year in Nike, they still had an awful year.
Basketball went to zero Final Fours, zero Elite Eights, zero Sweet Sixteens and won no B1G Championships with Nike as the outfitter (1995-96 was the first year of the deal). Their final year in Nike, Michigan had their worst season in program history going 10-22.
A Final Four, two Elite Eight appearances, two Sweet Sixteen appearances and two B1G Championships with adidas.
Michigan also won ONE NCAA Tournament game in TWO appearances with Nike (that win doesn't officially count). Let that sink in for a moment.
Football being in the shape they're in is the fault of the administration and coaching regimes. Not the outfitter.

I'd understand their reasoning behind doing it. Doesn't mean I'd agree with it or like it.
The current price for the "biggest game on the schedule" is $100/$200. I can see that bumping up for next year. Rivalry games have always been expensive.

When I hit rock bottom in spring of that year, the instant turnaround that took place after I started getting help was incredible.

The Sugar Bowl win was amazing but it didn't feel like beating ohio did.

I'm going to sit back and laugh at how season ticket demand will be back up when the team starts winning again. Similar to Basketball. "Gee, where did all these people come from?"
Not a prayer of selling out a game against a directional school 10 years ago, and then Michigan sells out all three games against them in 2012-13. Winning cures everything.

The last time Michigan had a live Wolverine was 1937.
Bennie & Biff in 1927 were returned a year later to the zoo after one of them bit through the cage. They actually were going to have one of the Wolverines meet Navy's goat mascot at midfield.....I'm serious.
In 1937, Chevrolet donated another Wolverine named Intrepidus. It's unclear how long that lasted.
Michigan later went on to have a two dogs as mascots. A couple smuggled their dog into the game and let him loose at halftime onto the field. At first the University officials didn't like it but the dog was cheered and the owners were requested by the University in a Daily article to call and arrange more halftime performances for Whiskey, the dog (and later Brandy). This went from the 1960s to the early 70s.
And finally, in the 80s some students tried to create a costumed mascot, Willy the Wolverine. They already had the mascot trademarked and were ready to sell the mascot to the University after the students supported it similar to Whiskey......except that never happened, and the University put out a cease-and-desist ending Willy the Wolverine.

Also, U-M Soccer Stadium just got their HD scoreboard as well. The scoreboards have been improved all across the athletic campus to HD technology.
I'll say it again, DB has done so much good for Michigan Athletics as a whole. Field Hockey desperately needed a fix. What they got was essentially a new stadium. Also, the old South Ferry facility has been completely redone and is now a Field Hockey team facility.
Women's soccer used to play where South Ferry was back in the 90s to mid-2000s. That was their varsity field. And if they had conflicting games with the Men's team that was added in 2000, the Men's team was forced to play at Elbel Field or Pioneer.
By the end of the decade when this massive renovation adventure is over, Michigan is going to have the top overall facilities in college athletics.

I'm all for a mascot on one condition: it has to look good.
It's an added extra for sideline antics and silliness. All it essentially is is a costumed cheerleader. If that seriously ruins your gameday experience or prevents you from going to games.......wow.
Even if it looks great, people are still going to whine and complain about it like they do with every single move the athletic department makes. Except, they'll adapt over time and like Don said, by the time 2025 rolls around, it will have already around at Michigan for a decade.
That said, maybe model it off of this-
Or maybe this
It just can't be some gooft looking smiling mascot because that's not a Wolverine.

I kept buying only on Sundays after a win because I've been saving the Michigan frontpage after wins since 2006 as one of my first little traditions. I was 11 when I started doing that.
I let the BS from 2009 slide. Now I'm done.
DetNews might not have a sexy frontpage, but they're better by default due to them not trying to hurt the University.

I didn't like the helmet thing at first when it came out in 2012. But they've figured out that Michigan's helmet has wings over time.
The foil is just something I've never seen done on a Michigan shirt. And I like it. The only thing I wish they did was color in the white on the helmet to Blue.
But yeah, I don't know why adidas can't just be normal and do shirt designs like they did for 2011-12 - 2012-13. Below was the Michigan Football shirt for that time period and it was simple and not dumb looking. Except for the person wearing the shirt. (me)

Only custom designs for the schools that let their players model are in there. KU and Louisville.
The shirt you're talking about was worn as a special in 2011 vs state.
Since then, Michigan has had a home and road undershirt in 2012 and a standard one last year since everyone loved the 2011 shirts.

adidas/M-Den also did release new fan gear today.
I love the printed foil visor on this shirt even though Hoke doesn't seem to allow visors.
And here is the official t-shirt/hoodie design for all sports at Michigan in 2014-15. Very little changed and I'm not very happy about it because I hated last year's design.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||A little more equipment||
Michigan is already wearing the Shockweb TechFit jerseys in practice. I highly doubt they are ever worn in a game because people would lose their minds. Not pictured in the Funchess photo, but the adidas logo above the jersey number is white on the home jerseys for all adidas schools who decide to go with these.
What has a decent chance of happening is the team wearing Shockwave undershirts (for lack of a better term). We've seen Michigan have graphics on the biceps of their 'shirts the past two years.
I put a the box around the Navy color we could see. There are less crazy options when it comes to these like a solid Navy which seems more realistc.
I get I'm a nerd with the equipment and whatnot. But the evolution of Michigan's uniforms is kind of interesting to me.

You're thinking of 2006. That was our final farewell to John L. Smith. 31-13.
Weird 4:30pm kickoff but Michigan just streamrolled them. That was the year beating Minnesota was higher on the totem pole due to Mission Jug Rescue.
My earliest memory of Michigan Football was the 2000 Orange Bowl. Considering I was 4, it's incredible. The celebration in my house when their kicker blew that PAT in OT is what I remember.

I don't mean to go all statz here but just something interesting....
The longest winless streak in the opponent's city is 14 years.
ohio was winless in Ann Arbor for 14 years, until they won in 2001. After that season, well, I think we know what they did with their run through the 2000s.
Michigan's current winless streak in Columbus is.......14 years.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||Also||
It's always beat ohio.
I've seen Michigan beat ohio three times in my life. I was 5 and 8 for 2000 and 2003. I remember nothing from 2000 and three things from 2003.
Michigan beating them in 2011 was the greatest I have EVER felt in my life. I don't care if I get any crap for it, it's the absolute truth. That day was just.......liberating.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||That game against ND is worth||
That game against ND is worth nothing more than a "who won the last game?" type thing. Michigan has already won the series.
They aren't rivals to me. Rivals don't bitch out and run away to play Wake Forest and Duke. Michigan has won the series record-wise and has owned them winning 6 of the last 8. Michigan has scored 38 points or more in four of those games, winning by double digits three times.
That game against them is the least of my concerns. I don't care. If they win, good. If not, oh well, this team isn't going to win the national title anyways so it's not a big deal.
The game I'm most concerned with in the non-conf is the first game.

|3 weeks 3 days ago||Compared to last year's, this||
Compared to last year's, this batch is MUCH better. Last year really made me question adidas.
Perhaps I'm so defensive of adidas because of how much I've invested in their gear. Not just the Michigan gear, but every pair of shoes/socks/boxers/shorts/athletic wear since the change I have bought has been adidas. More days of the week than not, every article of clothing on my body is adidas-made. No days go by where I don't wear something made by them. Zero. Hell, even when I played football in junior high when the change happened, I made sure to get adidas cleats & helmet visor.
The last Nike thing I bought of any kind was a #86 jersey that was on sale before the switch to adidas became official in 2008 with the first day of fall camp.
Although, I do genuinely like the stuff this year like the polos and the white pullover. The second hat I like, the others not so much. Hell, I didn't even notice until now that I'm wearing the Maize shorts.
