The MZone Gift Giving Guide

As we move along in this holiday season, we thought it'd be a good idea to make a couple of suggestions to our readers on what to get that college football fan in your life. Or even better, what to suggest to your friends or family on what to get you.

First up we have the Vintage Leather "Old School" Collegiate Helmets. Though these wouldn't be adequate for playing Division I football, they'd be great to keep you warm for November games, as well as looking cool while playing that game of touch football when the family gets together. Unfortunately, they're only available for twelve schools, but if you're a fan of one of those, this would be a gift that keeps on giving.

Next up we have the College Logo BBQ Football Grills. Available for 26 schools, including Michigan, these football shaped grills - complete with laces on the lid - are 21 inches tall, 22 inches wide, and 15 inches deep.

Both items are available at Tailgating Supplies. The helmets are $95.95, and the grills are $69.95.

And if you're looking for some Michigan memorabilia, check out this eBay auction for a football signed by the '64-'65 U-M football team.

I don't get it, how did those 12 schools get picked for having their emblem on a leather throw-back era helmet? I mean, come on, don't you just think of Utah when you think of leather helmets duking it out on the gridiron?

I'm really disappointed that they have the gril for South Carolina. What sellouts. Next thing you know, will be that UofF is going to wear a Tostidos BCS patch on their jerseys.

UofF would never do that. That's just plain rediculous!!!

Man, better watch that Oregon grill. I hear the crown causes hotdogs to roll right off!

(thought I'd make the joke before some buckeye got to it)

those are the kind of helmets Michigan wore for 10 of their 11 national championships. (of course...some of those really early ones might have been before helmets all together)

Anon 10:26a. Good one. Now strap on your helmet, wipe off your drool and grab your backpack, 'cause the short bus is on the way.

I had the same thought about the leather helmets - what doesn't scream "old time gridiron" like Utah vs. Oregon State?

Jim said...

What's the deal for the UofM signed football for the 64-65 season that went to the Rose Bowl stuck at 199.00 all day. Is this going to get busy closer to the deadline, or is it suspected to be a fake?

If Nebraska did use those old leather style hemets they'd still look 1000 times better than those jokes the Blew wear.

Wow, not only are you bitter, you also don't get the joke. Congrats on consecutive 4-loss seasons!
