Woody was one of the first college coaches to put names on the back of jerseys. The names debuted with the 1968 uniforms, which were a radical change from the previous uniforms. He even put leaves on the helmet (what the heck?). He put the names on the back because he thought it would help recruiting -- make the parents happy to see the name on the jersey. You can above that we have names on back and Sparty doesn't. I would guess that photo is from 1970.

I bet the traditionalists were hopping mad about the names on the back.

Anyone who's an Eagles fan would enjoy Don Felder's book. He's still mad a Henley and Frey, but that's just a very small portion of the book. The chapters about growing up in the Gainesville, Florida music scene are really cool -- for example, when Felder was in high school he taught guitar lessons and one of his students was Tom Petty! The chapter about the origins of the song "Hotel California" is great rock-and-roll history. 

Also, Felder was at Woodstock, as a fan.

Bravo for including his "Live From Daryl's House" performance. Really cool. I didn't know Hall was such a rocker til I found "Daryl's House."

Safe to say M*chigan has been exposed in their last two games. Total yards tonight: Minny 461, UM 296.

The kid who knocked Rudock out of the game is from the town in Minnesota where I live. Nice (and clean) hit Andrew Stelter!

Antonio Williams's running style reminds me of Maurice Clarett.
