Wallpaper Wednesday - The GAME 2010

Last year on the Spawn of MZone I posted three wallpapers celebrating big Michigan wins over Ohio State. It didn't help change the outcome, but it made me feel better. So I decided to keep the tradition alive


The first one is in honor of former Michigan All American Rob Lytle. He led the 1976 Wolverines to a 22-0 victory over the Buckeyes in Columbus (breaking a four game win-less streak in the series)



The second one is a simple graphical representation of the rivalry. There are 106 helmets. Moving left to right from the first game in 1897, the winner is displayed (a black helmet indicates a tie). The purpose of this is to present a long term perspective for this rivalry.


This one needs no explanation.

These are fantastic. Especially the Rob Lytle wallpaper which captures what he was all about on the field and is a thing of beauty.

Whets... Bo may have been from Ohio but he would be the dictionary picture of a Michigan Man. No doubt Woody would be that picture for tosu.

GBB,

"There are guys there that are really close friends of mine," Schembechler said. "I never brought it up when I coached, but I have close ties at Ohio State. Unfortunately, I even have a graduate degree from there. They made me go to school while I was a graduate assistant. … There's no other team I would rather play, no other coach I would rather go against than the old man."

Just sayin'. Love the irony. No disrespect meant.

Whets... No disrespect taken. It is obvious they both respected each other and were good friends. If Bo had not come to Michigan I am sure he would have become the ultimate Ohio man. Here's to the new combination of Harbaugh versus Tresell, opening in 2011.
