"It was a privilege," Gardner said Monday night at the Ufer Quarterback Club Banquet in Ann Arbor. "I don't think people understand how much of a privilege it was to not only be a quarterback at Michigan, but just to be a part of this university whether you're a student-athlete or not," "And I knew that as a sophomore in high school. I knew this was a special place."

Idea that isn't very well thought out:
Give permanent patches to #21, #1 and #2 and select players to wear those by whatever the current process is. In addition each season allow X number of players (more than 1 but less than 4) as chosen by the coaches and senior leadership to pick a number and a corresponding patch for their use for that season.
For example: Going into 2012 the senior leadership picks Fitz to have a patch for this season and his favorite player was Mike Hart. Fitz could switch his jersey to #20 with a Mike Hart patch for that season.
Then the next season you start the process over again and maybe Fitz gets picked again and continues honoring Mike Hart or maybe he doesn't get picked and the Mike Hart patch goes away until someone picks it down the road.
The only issue I would see with this is that most of the people being honored would have likely played within the lifetime of that player making it harder to honor guys who played 30 to 100 years ago.
Typed out it sounds kind of dumb but I think rotating patches each season allows the program to limit the number of players wearing patches in any given season to a reasonable amount and you give more current and former players a chance to be part of a fun little tradition.

Is this what we can expect for the rest of the year from the kicking game or was Saturday just an abberration because of weather/being on the road/whatever?

but I find it hard to fathom that this announcement would be made 2 days before his team plays for a conference championship, a BCS birth and a possible shot at a national title. Just sayin.

In the few e-mails I exchanged with him yesterday I got the impression that he isn't a fan of UofM or MGoBlog. However, he seemed like a nice guy and was very forthcoming and open so I don't really hold it against him. Not everyone can be a fan.
In terms of his post today, I agree that he made some good points.

I actually use MySpace - I feel it is a better avenue to pick up strange chicks.

My "sources" say that he was thinking about transfering to Florida State (I know somebody already said this but I'm just trying to add some verification) but decided over break to stick it out at Michigan. Take that for whatever it is worth.
I also started hearing rumors about Stonum transfering around the weekend of the Minnesota game, but those have dried up.
