Here's another good omen. This Saturday is Willis Ward Day - the 84th anniversary of the Michigan-Georgia Tech game (Oct. 20, 1934), in which Ward was benched by Fielding H. Yost because Georgia Tech refused to play against an African-American. If you don't know the story, see the documentary "Black and Blue." Here's a USA Today story about it, too. LINK
The last time a Michigan game fell on Oct. 20 was back in 2012 - ironically enough, also against MSU. You'll remember that we won that game, 12-10.
I'll take all the good omens we can get. And happy Willis Ward Day, everyone. After learning his story, he's my all-time favorite Wolverine.
