The email did start off talking about a shirt

Did everyone see Coach Harbaugh wearing our official UMCGC HAIL shirt around Chicago last week? If you don’t already own one, or if you just need more HAIL gear, be sure to order from our online sale today! See below for more details. And as always, we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event.

Also Adam Rittenberg and Todd Howard. And MC'd by yours truly.

Somebody please remember to ask Todd in the Q&A how many kickoff return touchdowns he'd have had if he got to return kicks all four years. Remember:

  • Desmond Howard has the school record, which is 2.
  • Todd had a broken wrist for all of 1999
