That's the proper ending.  It stands for "peace be upon him."  As you all probably know, Muslims put it after Muhammad's name.  For instance, "Man, that Muhammad pbuh really gives great stock advice, since he's, like, a prophet and all. Praise Allah!"

Another option is to use the suffix Shlitah.  It's a Hebrew abbreviation that is usually used for names of great rabbis. I don't know what it means.

"Rabbi Rosenstein shlitah wrote a book on Maimonidean philosophical thought represented in the Knight Rider series, all while perfecting his golf swing." 

I am sorry if I offended any Muslims or Jews in this post. I can at least assure you that this post is 100% pork-free.

is have a ballot every so often where people can write down names like in a baseball HOF ballot. Then we can elect Michigan figures to the list of BBHN. Of course, Yost and Bo would be in without being elected.

Actually, when referencing Bob Ufer, it should always be followed with 'God Bless His Cotton Pickin' Maize and Blue Heart.'  It was his signature line. Lets keep that alive!

Otherwise, I'm on board with all the others. I'd like to throw in Rob Renes. Best Nose Tackle I've seen pay at UM in my lifetime! Like Hutchinson, TFL was his middle name.

From wikipedia..."Francis Powers who, upon witnessing him play for the Badgers against the Great Lakes Naval Station in 1942, wrote "His crazy legs were gyrating in six different directions, all at the same time; he looked like a demented duck."

BBHN...and his demented duck legs.

Yes, he went 0-4 against OSU.  (Damn you MHG.)  But he has the qualities that people have in mind when they think "Michigan Man."  He is smart, he worked really hard and overcame adversity to become Michigan's all-time rusher, he always gave 100%, and he and Jake Long served as the team's public voice.
