OK, somebody at Wikipedia definitely went to Michigan

so we've all noticed that there has been a more than normal amount of michigan-related information on wikipedia. well, here's another:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980_Michigan_Wolverines_football_team

it's on the front page. my guess is that lloyd carr has too much time on his hands now that he's retired and when he isn't getting our old assistant coaches jobs, he hits the internet highway spreading the maize and blue gospel. good for him. go blue.

No article on John Wangler! How the hell can you have an article on the 1980 Michigan team without John Wangler? Rich Hewlett, fine, I can see that. Rich was more of a footnote. But Wangler? Come on.

This was obviously the work of a fan, or the ghost of Bo Schembechler. I mean, I think Lloyd would be expanding the article for the 1997 team, which is frankly little more than a stub.

someone from michigan also works for PTI. when lloyd was coach, his face was in the background and he was wearing a michigan hat. now rich rod is in the background wearing a michigan hat. its one of the few logos you see in the background

There are a lot of Michigan ties at ESPN. Mike Tirico, Dana Jacobson, Rich Eisen used to work there, Desmond Howard... Any others? Now Cris Carter, Kirk Herbstreit, and Chris Spielman work there, and I think Jay Crawford had something to do with OSU, too.

There might be others, but I can't think of any off the top of my head. That's a lot of talking heads to come from just a couple schools.

... that 1949 Michigan football MVP Dick Kempthorn later flew more than 100 missions as a jet fighter pilot in the Korean War and received the Distinguished Flying Cross?
