Very cool The Game project (even if it was done by a buckeye)

I just wanted to pass along a very cool link to a project an Ohio fan did about The Game and Big Ten history seen through the rivalry:

http://www.uni-watch.com/2011/11/26/michigan-ohio-state-like-youve-never-seen-them-before/

The article is very long, but basically what the guy did is make a little cherub figurine for each year of Michigan/Ohio football history (back to the first game in 1879) and paint it to reflect the winner of The Game each year. He made many tiny details, including symbols to represent who won the Rose Bowl, whether it was the end for a coach involved, etc. Pretty cool, especially to those of you who appreciate obsessive projects and minutiae like this.

This guy has been a periodic UniWatch feature for a while, and he does some incredibly cool stuff.  I've been waiting for them to finally show this entire thing after the little teaser months and months ago.

One thing I can't figure out is his rationale for how he painted the 1973 figure.  Based on his criteria, as I read it, it should be a split figure.  The AD vote only determined the Rose Bowl representative from the two Big 10 co-champions, who were just about as tied as you can get...

This is an absolutely amazing project. It is a ton of time and work. Im very impressed with all the little details to make each season different (with the eyes and colors, ect). To bad he isnt selling these because they would make for an awesome show piece.
