The AP has reported Michigan's football team will wear commemorative jerseys in its season opener against Alabama. The game is scheduled for September 1 in Arlington, Texas.

A blue block `M' will appear on the left and right sleeve of the jersey, and the player numbers are blue. Michigan will wear its traditional maize pants with the blue block `M' on the left hip.
Wolverine Recruit Starts a Fire With .... a Fire

It is not like he burned the American Flag but some Buckeye fans might get just as upset! A lot is being made about the class of 2013 Wolverine recruit that burned a letter from Ohio State.
Logan Tuley-Tillman insisted he didn't think it was a big deal when he posted a picture on his Twitter account of him burning an envelope from Ohio State. The Michigan football recruit found out otherwise.
The highly rated offensive tackle from Peoria, Ill., has committed to the Wolverines' 2013 recruiting class, and posted the photo Saturday. He said he only did it because he was tired of people asking him if he was going to flip to the Buckeyes.
NCAA rules prohibit Hoke commenting on recruits until they sign a letter of intent. Hoke has said he isn't a big fan of social media when it is used for sharing personal thoughts and pictures for all to see. He better learn to find a way to control it if he doesn't want unnecessary trouble.
Defensive Back Ready To Return To The Team
May 1, 2012 7:00 PM
Michigan safety Josh Furman, who was acquitted of three misdemeanor charges in Michigan's 15th District Court last week, has been reinstated to the football team, the school said in a release today. Furman was found not guilty of domestic violence, assault and illegal entry charges Thursday in front of judge Elizabeth Pollard Hines.
Furman, a redshirt sophomore, was a special teams contributor last season as one of Michigan's top gunners on punt coverage. He was expected to compete for a spot in the two-deep at safety this spring, but was suspended. He is expected to compete for a slot behind starting safeties Thomas Gordon and Jordan Kovacs this fall.
Here's To You Mr. Robinson

Every indication that Michigan has returned to the major college scene under Coach Brady Hoke is confirmed with the news that standout quarterback Denard Robinson will return for his senior season. Coming off a BCS bowl win over Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl, Robinson confirmed the news on Twitter this week which means he will get the opportunity to return to the 'Shoe' for the rubber match of his career against OSU. Buckeye fans know this will be their last game of the season as they face an NCAA post season ban in 2012. Should be a thriller.
