    That just goes to show you how ignorant he is. The two helmets have nothing in common. Those aren't wings on the Wolverines helmets. They look more like tire tracks or skid marks. Probably from Spartan cleats. :lol:

    I'm not saying this because I'm not a Michigan fan. I used to follow them more than Sparty growing up but their helmet I always thought was ugly. Plus I thought the design was senseless. I still do. I never cared that much for the jersey either. Spartys stuff was even uglier. Now I like Spartys stuff. Michigan's jersey is mediocre but I still think the helmet is ugly and stupid.

    Funny. I went to an appointment Wednesday and wore my "2013 Division Champions" hat to a Denny's afterward. The manager stopped at our table and said he was Michigan fan and showed us he was wearing their colors on his wrist. So we had fun talking a little trash. Unfortunately he had my sunny side up eggs scrambled instead! :bs::icon evil::ballchain::boink::rofl::goodstuff:

    When Bo was hired he made the comment "and maybe now we can make a change to the helmet" after seeing many baleful stares he said "or not" .

    Yeah, Foles is on that rookie contract where you can't get it adjusted until after three years.

    Who in the world is crazy enough to pay Carson Palmer near the very top of the scale $9 million? Way more than most of the best quarterbacks?

    He was one of those can't miss candidates. Grad of Southern Cal and a Heisman winner. Also the 1st chosen in the 2003 draft.

    That draft was over ten years ago. They've known he's sucked long before he signed that big contract.

    $9M is only the half way point. Still way too much.
