I could see Lewis or Peppers being offered the #2 jersey next season. But while Lewis had started to prove himself to be an amazing cover corner last season, neither plaer had really stepped forward and made a decisive case for it until this year (in all fairness though, Peppers was injured for effectively all of last season), and I doubt the staff would offer a kid a new number midway through the season.
|4 days 35 min ago||At any rate, I don't think the patch was necessary||
If there were no patches the legends jerseys wouldn't be specifically tied to one player, so, for example if UM were to have an amazing QB who wore the #11 jersey, that legends jersey wouldn't merely symbolize the Wistert bros, but that QB as well, thus allowing future players to "build their own legends" albeit in the jersey of a former player.
Alternatively if the jerseys included patches which said "Michigan Legend" or something like that It would accomplish the same goal. I am not a fan of retiring jerseys or putting Michigan players names on the stadium, and I wasn't a fan of the names being on the patches. Michigan is not about individuals, no matter how great, it's about the team. The Team, The Team, The Team.
|4 days 46 min ago||Yeah, started about the same time as the legend jerseys||
I think it was Hoke's idea, but I could be wrong. Basically they said, Vincent Smith would be the last non-DB to wear #2, and then it would go to a really really good DB. Which is why they gave it to Countess after his best season.
|4 days 49 min ago||But then what happens if we get another Tom Harmon||
or Wistert brothers? You still run into the issue that at some point someone's accomplishments may merit having their jersey retired but they don't get that honor because they were born too late.

except for a defensive back
|4 days 54 min ago||Were they forced into it?||
I was under the impression they were offered the legends jerseys
|4 days 1 hour ago||I actually really liked the legends jerseys||
I actually really liked the legends jerseys, I've never been a fan of retiring a players jersey, and thought that this was a creative way to honor former players. That is the one thing Brandon initiated that I wish had stuck around. Unfortunately I think it was a victim of its creator, in that since it was something started under Brandon, it was doomed to be taken out back and shot once he was ousted.

1. Peppers scores a TD
2. OSU has clear targeting penalty against UM that gets called then reversed
3. Harbaugh has two GIF moments (one freakout, one post-game celebration)
4. OSU comes out hot, UM punches them in the mouth, motivation is lost.
5. OSU scores early in 4th Quarter looks like they're going to rally, UM hits back. Game, Blouses
6. Box score:
Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4
UM 7 3 7 7
OSU 7 0 0 7

but with the number of QBs on the roster, and the reports from pactice I'd say our depth chart looks roughly like this:
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Yeah... so... that just means||
they're all rivals. That Rutgers-OSU rivalry sure is intense, same with the Rutgers-Wisconsin rivalry; Rutgers-MSU; Rutgers-PSU; Rutgers-Nebraska; and of course Rutgers-Michigan... All the top teams in the B1G want a piece of Rutgers!
/s... in case it wasn't obvious

At what point do they get added to the Freep/ChatSports/BR list of disreputrable sources?
|3 weeks 4 days ago||I have one||
I got a 2-year subscription to ESPN mag for $8, occasionally theres something interesting in the magazine. Anyway it comes with Insider, which I only use for fantasy football. So there is a reason for it... though I wouldn't pay full price for it by any means.

This isn't funny! Comment criticizing your maturity based solely on this post as it relates to the whole situation as I have misinterpreted it.
Original rant then continues irrespective of specific relevance to this comment. "Factually incorrect quote from obscure social justice blog misapplied". Sentence comparing original poster to American President I don't like!

I'm going to reply, taking your comment completely seriously, and rant about how offensive it was! I'll throw in clichéd phrases like "seriously, it's 2015" and "that's just ignorant!" All while leaving huge holes and leaps in logic.

Two of the most laughable posts I saw last week on UMD's 247 board were about the Harbaughs. One suggested that they could've tried to outbid UM for Jim Harbaugh, the other suggested that John Harbaugh will be their coach next year (actually there have been several suggesting the latter).
It feels nice to be the less dilusional of two fanbases for once when the other fanbase isn't ND.

Randy Edsal Movie Reviews:
The Prestige: I really liked the message of this movie; two rivals at the top of their field duking it out! I often showit to the team to help motivate them to be the best they can be, though I usually skip the end, I just can't keep track of how many brothers Hugh Jackmon has... his poor mother! 4 Stars
The Village: I loved this movie! At first I thought the monsters in the woods were gonna come in and kill everybody, but it fast forwards a couple houndred years to show you everything turned out ok... I still would like to know how they killed the monsters though. 4.5 Stars
Good Will Hunting: Worst Robin Williams movie since the Dead Poet Society... I didn't get any of the jokes! 1 Star

Reading this is roughly where I lost my composure.
|17 weeks 5 days ago||I agree that we need more than 4||
I think the ideal number is either 6 (with two teams on a bye the first round) or 8 teams. I don't see them expanding it any further that that. 64 teams is just plain insane.
