The Big Reveal!

Worried about the new home jerseys? Fear not, for they have been revealed!This is similar to, but not the same as, Phil Callahan's description:
The home jerseys have a maize block "M" on the shoulder, the number is a little thicker and seems to be placed a little higher than on past jerseys. There's also a small (1/4 inch wide by 1-2 inch) vertical maize strip running down from the collar that has Michigan in blue.
The strip on the collar (later clarified by Callahan to have a Block M, rather than the word "Michigan") is there, the shoulder "M"s are not. No word yet on the away jerseys, described thusly by Callahan:
The away jerseys have a thin maize piping straight across the chest. There also have a small maize strip on the back of the collar that says Michigan in blue.
TV. The TV times for the first three weeks of the Big Ten Network schedule have been revealed as well, and Michigan isn't on The Network in this timeframe. This means that the home opener against Utah and the non-conference tilt against Miami are on the Disney networks (Notre Dame is away, and therefore on NBC).

Since the BTN is guaranteed at least 3 games per team (and at least 1 conference game), this means that Michigan's contest against Toledo will likely be relegated to a station that nearly everyone gets now. Two conference games (probably against "lesser" opponents like Northwestern (sorry, LTP) and Minnesota) will also have to end up on BTN to meet the minimum.

Grady. Through a friend-of-a-friend, I know one of the people he was "going out to get drunk with" (as described by the person in question's mother). He blew a .281, achieving his goal and then some. Rodriguez will handle discipline internally after meeting with Kevin.

    Jerseys looks just fine. I love the block M on the shoulders, kind of old-school. Can't wait to see what the road jerseys look like.

    Go Blue!

    I don't think it's a block M on the sleeve, just the number 1 gives it that illusion. Also, I think maybe blowing a .0281 is what you meant? At .281, according to wiki, you start to lose consciousness.

  4. Blogger Tim Says:

    That does indeed appear to be a #1, not an "m" (as I said in the post).

    Grady blew a .281 (more than three times the legal limit). If he blew a .0281, he would have been well below Michigan's limit of .08, and not been guilty of breaking any law. The reports say that he was so incoherent that he was unable to confirm to the judge that he understood the charges being brought against him, so I assume he was very, very drunk.

    Free scout access for the weekend. This doesn't really fit, but anyone who comes to the site often should hopefully see this.

    That;s not a block M, it's the number (1). Almost nothing changed from past years.
