and looks cool on Rashan.  I never had a problem with the idea of the legends Jersey, just in the execution.  A patch is fine, but it just needs to be a special R (retired) or L (legend) and Jersey's need to be handed out freshman year. I hated when Gallon moved from 10 to 21.  It's hard enough keeping track of who's who without the constant number switching.

If it's more than him simply wanting to switch #s maybe it's to clear the way for some ST snaps or little role at TE or FB or whatever

This has to be the year we see him take it to another level. He started to pop a little more on the field his last few games hopefully he carry’s that into this year

he was starting to BEAT double teams and blatant holding. I think at some point he went from manchild to budding superhero. Kid is an understandable #1 overall monster. I honestly would rather he kept the #3 that was his identity from the first snap, but if 98 motivates him...more power to him.

If he were back, there would be a sash diagonally across the uniform indicating that it was a "Michigan Legend" jersey, with Kraft macaroni noodle images on each shoulder (which would at least color match well), and with the words "the cheesiest" written across the backside.

The more I think about what he & the exec team did to Toys R Us the more disgusted I get. They had to have known that the prospects were bleak for it to continue and yet they didn't think twice about taking millions in bonuses before shutting it down soon thereafter.  

All those people out of work but glory be that Brandon got his platinum parachute.  Fuck him.

End Rant.  Love to see R Gary in 98.

I liked Devin Gardner wearing 98. I think it’d be a cool tradition if the best player on a team could be rewarded with wearing 98 or something like that. You just can’t go overboard where have 20 different players on the team wearing Legends jerseys...

But, I think that is a number that should have stayed retired.  Some of the things Tom Harmon did were so ridiculous that he deserves that honor.

Happy for Rashan thouugh.  I'm sure he is excited to have the honor of wearing that number.  

Hope this means he will also get a standing ovation in the Horseshoe after THE GAME as Tom Harmon did after he almost singlehandedly destroyed them.

So does this mean Shea is happening? I know he is scheduled to wear #2 this year and maybe Michigan doesn’t want their two best players wearing the same number.

Image result for tom harmon michigan football

that picture hung in my room in college.  and yeah, i can imagine gary running the football with his freak athleticism.  side note, i'm guessing the opposing team is sparty in this pic.  they had a wing on their helmet for a time, but with only one stripe going back.  i always thought their helmet looked like a spermatzoa....
