Props to Ron Simpkins

Been meaning to get this up but hadn't had a chance (and also wanted to make sure I had some good pictures to go in the post).

Last week, in our first ever legit MZone scoop (suck it, Detroit News), we broke the story (yeah, sounds weird just saying it) about the show of support by former players outside the Michigan Stadium tunnel before the ND game. Well, former U-M All-American linebacker Ron Simpkins was the Michigan Man who spearheaded the initiative and we just wanted to give him a shout out for a job well done.

I think what he did, and the enthusiastic response from former players, says a lot about the bond between players today and those who donned the winged helmet in years past. They didn't turn their backs on the 2007 Wolverines after their early struggles, but did whatever they could to help prove that Bo's well-known mantra "The Team! The Team! The Team!" lasts longer than just those four years a player is on campus.


Further props to all the maize and blue faithful who also were on hand to show their support as well. Every little bit helped. Because as bad as the Irish are (suckola), something like this never ceases to bring a smile...


Go Blue!
