Come on now, don't downgrade the U. We are a factory for most positions. It would be way too much work, but I think it would be interesting to see which university has produced the most pro-bowlers. I think Michigan would be way up there. I can't think of anyone who is LB/DL, but M could come pretty close to fielding a pro-bowler at each position.

I'm sure the Freep uses every other word in your post, too. Doesn't make it wrong.

Love it or hate it, people from Michigan are Michiganders. When I hear someone say "Michiganian" it makes me think they don't know much about my state.

Michiganite sounds like a type of rock or an icicle-like rock formation on the floor of a cave.

has yet mentioned "Michigines." Maybe it was defiance, but I only ever heard the term "Michiganders" growing up; I never knew (until now) there was an alternative. BTW, if UP folk get to be "Yoopers" (per Wiki), can Ann Arborealists call ourselves "Elpers?"

-- Pretty cool that Henne, Long, Woodley, Edwards, Hall, Breaston, and Harris are all productive starters in the NFL. I know there are even more from that four year span, but those guys are the ones who stick out in my mind... Anyhoo, it is great to see them doing so well at the next level. Here's to starting a whole new NFL train that produces ninjas instead of giants.
