Happy Thanksgiving from the MZone

Because it's Michigan-Ohio State week and our team's not taking the day off, we're not (totally) taking the day off.  Below are a couple appetizers to tide you over before your big meal today.

Have a safe and Happy Turkey Day and we'll see you Friday with another full slate here on the site!

As always, thanks for reading!

The M Zone Crew

*  For the second year in a row, the Ohio State Sell-Outs Buckeyes are once again wearing Nike promotional uniforms for the Michigan-Ohio State game.  Seriously, guys.  That's shit your do for your Youngstown State game, not The Game.

In any event, this year's look features scarlet helmets, scarlet jerseys, gray pants and gray socks.  The Tosu unis are throwbacks intended to honor the '42 Buckeye National Championship team.  "1942" will be written on their gloves (gloves?) and they will have a bronze star on the back of each helmet to honor that team's captain, who was recognized for heroism during the Battle of the Bulge, and others from that team who went off to World War II.

Not to be outdone, and in keeping the theme from this year's defense, some have suggested a decal on Michigan's helmets as well.

* Our buddy Mikoyan has this excellent panoramic shot of the Big House on his photography-themed blog, Michigan Exposures.  Simply awesome!

* Speaking of Michigan Exposures, Mik also went to the Detroit Zoo and snapped the pictures below of the wolverines there.  But as Mikoyan said on his site, "I really wanted to see the wolverines but both of them were sleeping."

Gee, who knew Greg Robinson also worked part-time at the zoo?

* Lou Holtz really was a 'Cock

The Wiz put up this clip of Lou Holtz being a complete a-hole during his days South Carolina head coach.  In it, an intern for a local TV station - mind you, not the person making the decisions - makes Holtz wait - gasp! - an extra couple minutes for the interview to start.  What a 'Cock.

* A Michigan-Ohio State themed video from PMSports.

* By popular request from our readers, here again are Tosu's Sleepy Rappers

* Finally, say it with me Buckeye fans...


Yes, sometimes those four letter words are the hardest ones to spell.

Happy Turkey Day to you and yours too - too bad there is an extra turkey moonlighting as your DC...

** Note the timestamp. Sometimes there is not enough Ambien to get me through the nights before a big Auburn game, especially THIS game THIS year...

Here's hoping Michigan pulls off an early Festivus miracle, and that Auburn stomps bammer into a very large mudhole in the turf at Bryant-Denny Memorial Outhouse and Food Stamp Redemption Center.

War Eagle!!

Go Blue!!

Death to all things in any shade of red!!!!

Go to sleep, Jen! Do you know what time it is? Shit, what the hell am I doing up?

You meant "Liberal, tree-hugging, socialist, anti-anything-holy academics," I'm sure.

Well, it can't be said that you aren't good sports. Pretty funny stuff. Thanks for leaving the door open so we, your weird neighbors, can drop in.

Uh, Jen...WAR EAGLE! Baby!

I KNEW you were a no-good two- timer whet. NEVER trust a buckeye!

TitleIX said...

ps--sleeping wolverines are adorably cute.

But, could somebody WAKE OURS UP??

Andy said...

Awesome resting/sleeping wolverine shots Mik.

Unless there is a miracle performed on saturday in the 'shoe by the guys in the winged helmets, I think I have found the basis for our next wallpaper wednesday.

It's not what you think. Really.

Go Blue!?

(I feel so dirty.)

Mikoyan said...

The Panoramic shot took a few tries to get it right. I had to do something modifying in GimpShot to get it to this point.

the sleeping wolverines were annoying but I figured it was a metaphor for something.

The four letter words are sometimes the hardest, just ask Gerg Robinson.

Happy Thanksgiving, and go Bucks!

Todd not Boeckman said...

For what its worth, I agree that the Nike procombats should be done during some crap game (Like OUR little brother....wait for it....PENN STATE muwahahahaaha)

THE Game should never be profaned by anyting like special marketing shit, games played after it on the regular season schedule; or even a separate division. I for one, wanted the game to determine the division championship directly.

Yost said...

Totally agree with you, Todd.
