I encourage the flair, and am only waiting with baited breath until a Michigan recruit can pull the same. I saw no malicious disrespect in the young man's actions, and certainly can't blame him for embracing the best rivalry in sports. I personally think the blue socks are an indication that he could flip his commitment. Whoa!
We'll take the positivity (any positivity!), but unless a starting OL wants to transfer in, the Michigan offense will be still less-than-best no matter who has the rock. Hey, I think that kid from Alabama was heading north... wha? DOH!!
Despite the loss of "tradition", I personally applauded the Big Ten expansion. Even if Rutgers and MD won't be competitive in football from the start, they bring strong academics and should eventually build their programs with a better, more fulfilling conference.
I'm a little late to the party, but as you can imagine, I had to go through some roadblocks to get here.
The jersey is vintage. My mother bought me a Jarrett Irons #37 the day I was accepted into UofM in the Fall of 1994. I haven't found the need to upgrade, even though I'll be the first to admit that it fits a little tighter these days.
The irony is that this advertisement was also lambasted on MGoBlog, where the criticism was more vicious and personally directed at my personal appearance. Who would have thought that Buckeye Nation would have less trolls??
Regardless, I find the attention amusing. God Bless The Rivalry.
