Texas Beats Michigan - Again

First it was the 2005 Rose Bowl. Now, Texas has topped Michigan again by breaking the Wolverines record for the most merchandising royalties in a single year.

Thanks to their national football title, the Longhorns led the nation with $8.2 million in royalties, knocking North Carolina from the top spot after a five-year run. The total also eclipsed Michigan's previous record revenue of $6.2 million set during the Fab Five's second trip to the Final Four in 1993-94 when the football team went 8-4 and won the Hall of Fame Bowl.

Hey now, don't strike out the Fab Five years. Personally, I don't think 'ol Mary Sue should have stripped the records, etc from the media guide. Everyone knows what happened during that time. It's like telling a jury to disregard what was heard. Well, we can't unplay the games, etc.

Just my 2 cents.

Go Blue!
