"Little Brother" gets thrown around a lot, but this is why it will never die. It's about so much more than what happens on the field. They have a major superiority complex.
Reaching to make yourself look highly ranked by using a poll no one cares about, and then bragging about winning a game against a bad team.
If that's not "Little Brother" I don't know what is.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||As the story goes, my Dad was||
As the story goes, my Dad was an MSU fan and worked at Spartan Stadium for a while. He saw them lose to Michigan enough times that he switched sides. He became a die hard during the Bo era. There are pictures of me in Michigan appareal all the way back to my birth. I can remember my Dad reading the The Wolverine back when it was a newspaper. My first memory of a Michigan sporting event is when my Dad had a big party for the 97 Rose Bowl.
tl;dr: my Dad is a Michigan fan

I love the history of the helmet stickers, but I just hope those particular ones remain in the the past. Please let the new helmet stickers look better.

Either way. You would think asking Webber to be in it would be priority #1.

I sincerely doubt that ESPN was like "oh shit there is only a week left and we forgot to ask the most important person in this documentary to be a part of it."
|10 weeks 1 day ago||lol||
I'm very interested to see if any college coaches from major programs take advantage of this.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Yes I do. There is nothing||
Yes I do. There is nothing wrong with those uniforms.
I wouldn't worry about Michigan's font being messed up. MSU didn't have a custom font when Nike did a school-wide redesign back in 2009. Michigan already has its own custom font.

Ugh. I hate waiting all day for a night game.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Came here to say exactly||
Came here to say exactly this. As someone who played basketball and baseball in high school it rubs me the wrong way when someone says football is the only way to learn those values. I hate to break it to the Harbaughs, but football is just another sport. It's fun as hell to watch, but there are plenty of ways to learn the value of hard work without getting a concussion.

My bad. I did a Google search to see if there was anything from the event online, and limited the results to the last week. Somehow that video was in the results.

It seems that they use the bright shade for stuff targeted to the young whippersnappers, while they use the classic shade for the older folks. I have no issue with that as long as the color is consistent on jerseys. No more of this three shades between the helmet, numbers, and pants.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||That was what I tried first.||
That was what I tried first. I didn't like the way it looked. That block M is so thick that when you stack a bunch of them next to each other it looks like a wall of maize.
|14 weeks 3 days ago||The stickers on Desmond's||
The stickers on Desmond's helmet are really big. They look even bigger than the buckeye stickers, and those are the iconic part of OSU's helmets. The iconic part of Michigan's helmet is the wings.
I hate to use MSU as an example, but their stickers are nicely sized. You can see them when the camera is up close on a player, but from a distance it doesn't take away from the main logo. Small Block M's would work nicely.
EDIT: I made my own.
|14 weeks 4 days ago||Was not a fan of legends||
I was not a fan of legends jerseys. Puts pressure on the kids, and prevents them from making their own numbers "legendary."
Helmet stickers can be cool if done right. The stickers from Jim's era are big and ugly. You've already got the most iconic football helmet design. If you're going to add stickers they should be small and subtle.
|14 weeks 5 days ago||I hope they don't look like||
I hope they don't look like the ones from Jim's era. Something smaller and more subtle would be better. The stickers shouldn't take anything away from the winged helmet. Maybe little Block M's or something.

I'm not sure it would have made a difference in the outcome, but that was a piss poor job by the refs.

These refs are not very good at being refs.

I completely agree. I was more talking about his in-game coaching flaws.
|17 weeks 3 days ago||I've gotten used to losing||
I've gotten used to losing this year. For the most part it's just fun to watch a bunch of young weird guys try real hard and get better. But man, games like this are absolutely soul crushing and maddening. Beilein is one hell of a coach, but this team is making his flaws show.

This makes about as much sense as trying to tell everyone in the world to stop tweeting about Game of Thrones instead of you just signing off for the night.
This is your problem. You fix it.

When Maryland can't score we can't score. When we hit a shot they hit a shot. Hard to comeback like that.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||All the elements are there||
All the elements are there for a good jersey, but Adidas has still managed to make it ugly. Remove the color blocking and make the stripes more consistent and you've got a pretty nice uniform.
|18 weeks 2 days ago||Maybe we should decline the||
Maybe we should decline the invite...
EDIT: The more I look at these the more I like the individual elements. Big block M is cool, wolverine logo is awesome, and the retro stripes are nice. If they would remove the color blocking and make the striping more cinsistent you have an awesome jersey.
In other words, I'm asking Adidas to show restraint, which we all know will never happen.

That's a pretty shitty thing to tell a 12 year old.
"Hey bud it's all down hill from here! Don't bother trying the rest of your life!"
|25 weeks 1 day ago||I am rooting for Oregon, but||
I am rooting for Oregon, but not just to root against OSU. I actually like Oregon. I would have rooted for OSU if they played FSU.

You don't still need cable. A cable company is selling the package, but you don't need a cable subscription to get it. It would be the same as paying for Netflix every month.

Has been confirmed by a UM spokesperson, but we won't know for sure until he says something about khakis.
