I too thought that the jerseys were going to be auctioned off for charity.

The Michigan Daily reported that as a fact, when the uniforms were unveiled:

(Although the Daily writer also reported that the unveiling took place in "one of the luxury boxes" when in fact it was the Jack Roth Stadium Club.)  And Ryan Van Bergen is also quoted as recently as this week, saying that he and his teammates previously thought that the jerseys would be auctioned off.

There are NCAA rules that determine what players can and cannot keep. Based on the presser, it sounded like Brandon needed special permission from the NCAA to allow the players to keep the UTL jerseys.

Not that I wouldn't trust the players, but to negate any possibility of them committing violations, it might be wise to hand out the jerseys after their senior year.

<blockquote>Wolverines defensive end Ryan Van Bergen, one of the captains, said he's not worried about any of his teammates selling or trading their jerseys.

"I think some school has probably made that a point that you're not supposed to do that," Van Bergen said Monday. "So, I think it's pretty clear that you're supposed to just hold onto them. I don't see anybody trying to get rid of those any time soon."</blockquote>

WHY WHOEVER COULD YOU BE REFERRING TO ARRVEEBEE?  I HAVE NO IDEA!

I'm confused about the Legend patch.  I thought the patch would permanently be affixed to the #21 jersey.  But in this article, it makes it sound like the patch was only for this one game.

"I walked out of the locker room, checked with compliance and got the go ahead. The reason they're getting the jerseys is they really want them and NCAA rules allow us to do it because it was a special event and the cost was under a threshold."
