|9 hours 41 min ago||So what do you do with #21?||
It's not a retired number but it IS a Legends number, so where does it fit in?
|1 day 12 hours ago||I believe it was posted yesterday||
Unless there's another Notre Dame center looking to transfer to Michigan. I didn't keep track of the name.
|1 day 13 hours ago||I love watching dynasties in action.||
Patriots, Bama, LeBron, whatever. I'm all for them.
2012 vs Bama was not pleasant, I have to admit, but I was cackling happily while they were demolishing Notre Dame later that year, and I've been okay with them ever since.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Michigan State also has these||
They complement the helmet pretty nicely.
Honestly, I'd have to go with Ohio State. Their plain helmet design was just made to have helmet stickers on it.
|2 days 12 hours ago||Don't know who did it, but this is the picture||
|3 days 25 min ago||I'm glad you mentioned Tony Pape||
As a young 'un in 2002 my dad took me to my first ever game in the Big House (vs. Central Michigan), and I kept the program from that game. I took a look at the team picture and said to myself "Okay, there are a bunch of names here that I know, but I'm gonna choose a face at random and follow his career." Picked out Tony Pape. Dude turned out to be an All-American.
I think this event among others is why I didn't understand for a very long time that not every Michigan player was an All-American and not every Michigan player would eventually play in the NFL. I mean if one guy I chose at random was an All American and Matt Guiterrez got signed for the Patriots despite never starting a game at Michigan, then surely everyone else did that too, right?

Who's Mama G?
|4 days 1 hour ago||Quite.|
|4 days 8 hours ago||Heh.||
It took me a very, very long time to notice the dude falling over in the background.
|4 days 8 hours ago||I would've said Pete Carroll when he was still in college||
Dude pulled hijinks on the regular and seemed like a fun guy. Plus, you know, the winning.
I hated USC when they kept beating us in Rose Bowls, but Pete's cool in my book now.
|4 days 9 hours ago||He had something like 750 total yards last year||
If only he weren't on the Jaguars.
|4 days 9 hours ago||Nah.||
I thought I would, but I don't. They did a damn fine job on the luxury boxes, and from the outside especially the brick looks beautiful and very Ann Arbor-esque.
|5 days 1 hour ago||In fairness||
That's a pretty easy mistake to make. Before I got glasses I couldn't tell that I was nearly blind.
|5 days 7 hours ago||I laughed at first||
then I re-read it and now I'm somewhat confused.
|5 days 7 hours ago||Not quite, but close enough.||
The German word for fox is Fuchs.
|5 days 13 hours ago||Well, I'm sad now.||
I got into Top Gear about two months ago and he was definitely a highlight.
|5 days 13 hours ago||As to that||
There's a difference between saying, "Oh, a guy's hurt" and "He fucking tore ligaments in his foot?!" And over the second half of the season it didn't get so much attention.
|6 days 11 hours ago||I liked the idea of legends jerseys||
Legends jerseys were a great idea and what they represented was cool. When Desmond Howard was on the field before UTL being honored with his Legends jersey, the stadium was just going crazy and it was a special moment.
I don't think it panned out very well, and I think the idea could have been executed somewhat better, but I loved the way it started out.
|6 days 12 hours ago||This is my favorite road uniform.||
I mean, damn, look at how good it looks.
|6 days 12 hours ago||Always loved the trim.||
Stylish without being completely over the top.
|1 week 1 hour ago||Foxes go floof|
|1 week 1 hour ago||Still got it||
|1 week 2 hours ago||That would open up a whole new era of instant replay headaches||
"He wasn't at the 10, you blind moron, he was at the 11! It counts!"
|1 week 2 hours ago||This is what I remember about Fred Russell in the 2003 Iowa game||
Little fucker hid behind his mammoth O-line, went crazy in the second half and ran for 200-some yards. I think he was the only one of Iowa's backs to escape the notice of AIRBHG, probably because he was so small.
|1 week 2 hours ago||Or even Boston College or something.||
The Flutie Effect is still a thing, right?
|1 week 2 hours ago||Apparently||
Apparently you can buy a fox as a pet in Russia. I found this out a year ago and I've made it a life goal.
|1 week 10 hours ago||I hope they don't.||
I hate the idea of doing away with something just because somebody got too good at it. Kickers have to make a living too, y'know.
|1 week 10 hours ago||Sporting attitude you've got there, WD.||
|1 week 10 hours ago||Shit. Well...||
The idea behind helmet stickers is cool (reward, incentive, all that fun stuff) but as so many others have said, it looks terrible combined with Michigan's helmet. Clutter all over the place.
The stickers will definitely be smaller (everything equipment-related in this day and age is), so that'll help. If they can make them look good, I'll be all for it.
