OFFENSIVE CHAMPION

FITZGERALD TOUSSAINT – Fitz gutted out a huge effort when it was needed. Sure he scored two TD’s but I was more impressed with the way he battled through the pain and protected the football all game long.

DEFENSIVE CHAMPION

DESMOND MORGAN – His one-handed INT swung momentum hugely for the Maize and Blue. Maybe he should wear Legends #8 jersey next game for going all Jason Avant-like with his one-handed snag?

SPECIAL TEAMS CHAMPION

JEHU CHESSON II – Not one, but two smackdowns on the UConn punt returners. Gotta love those hits!

HUSTLER /
SPARKPLUG

FRANK CLARK – He made a ton a big plays from the beginning to the end of the game. A solid and consistent effort from #57 all night.

UNIFORM CHAMP

WHITE M TOWEL – Michigan has worn these before, but the UConn game was the first time I could remember so many players sporting the same towel.

ROBERT FROST UFER MAIZE & BLUE
FEDORA FAN

FOREHEAD HELMET TATOO-GUY – I’ve seen a ton of UM tats, but never have I seen one front and center on someone’s melon:
Head Tat
NICE

EDITOR’S PICK

JEREMY GALLON – Whenever #21 had the ball in his hands you entered a safe place..a quiet space where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the sky is not cloudy all day. Until the play was over.

Ed. A very special Sap addendum:
A few years ago, I came up with the Michigan Fandom Endurance Badge after the nightmare that was the 2008 UM-Northwestern game:
FanEndurancebadge
Recent games this year against Akron and now UConn prompted Greg Dooley to ask me if I could come up with another type of UM Fandom Badge.
After all, when I emailed a few of my peeps just before kickoff proclaiming a BIG MEECHEEGAN victory, I never imagined that the Wolverines would struggle against the Huskies. So confident was I that I even titled my email, “UConn Massacre.”   By the end of the night, the massacre turned out to be more like a masquerade.
That was it!
By the end of the night I had to hide my eyes – I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing.  So instead of another badge, I thought of a brown paper bag for all Michigan fans to wear at the next home game:
Michigan Bag
But the more I thought about it, the more I realized this was not Michigan – not bourgeoisie enough.   Can you imagine the Blue-Hairs at Michigan Stadium wearing a brown paper bag? Never!  Remember, This Is Michigan!   So what would be bourgeoisie AND Michigan?  See below:

Now this is something worthy and classy enough for all Michigan fans – a masquerade mask!  When things get scary on the field, just hold this in front of your eyes and act like no one sees you or knows who you are.  Once DB gets a hold of this, he could slap a block M on it and sell thousands:

There is no truth to the rumor that Greg was wearing this Saturday night:

Of course, in Canada, John Kryk, author of Natural Enemies, was taking selfies of himself wearing this:

Me? I was still trying to keep the faith, but in the 2nd half, I couldn’t watch it anymore:

When the 4th quarter started, I believe Brian could no longer resist – he finally caved and put this one on:

So don’t fret Wolverine Nation, next time Michigan plays like Eastern Michigan, just reach for your nearest mask and cover your eyes!
