Long-time lurker, here. I think it's as bad of an idea as the rest of you, but I don't think it's a good look to launch a mob attack on the kid that came up with the idea. Did we really need to get a mob together and play smear-the-student to protect The Victors? I think the personal attacks are akin to the "Stop drinking and go to bed." It's just not somewhere we should be going if we hold ourselves higher than most other reprenhensible actions.

The UM Club of Cleveland will meet up to watch a lot of games, but in general you'll get your fair share of hate in any bars that you don't have numbers / friends in. Nothing worse than hearing "O-H" yelled out constantly while you're trying to watch a game.
Wear it proud regardless. Go Blue!

I've been waiting on getting this. Glad I can get it for a deal. Thanks for the info.

I also took this class and found it to be easily the most enjoyable undergrad course I ever took. From well-known speakers, to getting a ton of knowledge about the origins of collegiate athletics, it was hands down one of the most interesting, but complete courses I've ever taken.
John U. Bacon won the Golden Apple for this class and it was the most popular/hardest class to get into when I was in school.

Gosh, I love those muppets. When Douglass hit that three I went absolutely insane. My roommate (a non-Wolverine) was taken by surprise. Happy screaming at TV is so much better than angry screaming at TV.

Haha, I was thinking the same thing.
More interesting article title: "When will Brandon expose himself to the media?"

I think I like the old school appeal of them, but I do agree that after all this time that it may shock me how much the helmet looks cluttered. The idea of the block "M" instead of the wolverine might make it look a lot cleaner (especially if the M's did not have such a large football-shaped background).
Despite the "look" - I know that Lloyd got rid of them because he wanted more of a "team" element. Do you think that the lack of stickers really changed the team dynamic that much? I think it could be a nice reinforcement of solid on-field play or efforts, but I agree that you could reinforce this in another way. However, it may still give players something to aspire for.
If I remember correctly, my uncle's helmet from when he played (best show-and-tell thing ever as a kid -- especially in Ohio) and pictures from when he played display the stickers on them so I think I also have a bit of a personal bias / connection with them.
Here's a good article about them: http://www.usatoday.com/sports/college/football/2006-10-26-helmet-stickers_x.htm (states that Bo started up helmet stickers after seeing medals for military recognition).
If done the right way, I'd be all for it.
