Tougher than you

Yes, that's Woody riding on top of a van during a snowstorm.

You guys killed it last week, so hopefully we'll be able to entertain each other again. Truly exceptional captions might even earn t-shirt rewards.

The conqueror rode in a triumphal chariot, the dazed Wolverines walking in chains before him. Sometimes his children, robed in scarlet and gray, stood with him in the chariot, or rode the trace horses. A slave stood behind the conqueror, holding a golden pair of pantaloons, and whispering in his ear a warning: that all glory is fleeting.

Despite being made of steel, Woody Hayes did not make a great antenna for the 610 AM Radio Van.

"So this is what it feels like to actually wear a coat and gloves in a snow storm!"

That's quite alright ma'am. I'm wearing a coat so I can't expect you to go without one, much less completely topless.

As Coach Hayes greeted the cheers of addoring Buckeye fans lined up along High Street, the Univerisity of Michigan's lame attempt at a Death Star lurked just beyond his line of sight. When asked about the failed sneak attack later, Hayes snorted, "It'll take a whole lot more than a space ball conjured up by hippies and longbeards to take this old bastard down!"

Because we couldn't go for three.

This van better not have been made in Michigan.  If so I am going to drop 'em and take a dump right here.

Because a float is too "White Collar".

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

Riding in his command vehicle through the streets of Ann Arbor, greeted as a hero by the newly liberated citizens, Woody is handed a cable from the commissioner "Do not pass Toledo.  Let Sparty wipe out the Maize and Blue."  Woody, scoffing, tells his aide to cable back "Already taken AA.  Should I give it back?".
