  • Rivalry Trophy features a must-have with their Little Brown Jug replicas.  Since it is home in Ann Arbor for while now you must have one in your M shrine or certainly, minimum, on your Christmas tree.  That’s coming straight from the universe’s leading Jugologist.  Available in ornament/dashboard, mid-size (around a foot) and full size.   They also have bundles with ugly Paul Bunyan.   Dig it:

  • There a several books that came out this year that must be on the shelf of serious Michigan fans.  Most reading this site already have John U. Bacon’s ENDZONE which is fantastic.  I highly recommend John Kryk’s STAGG vs. YOST – you will not regret it.  If you appreciate history of college football and in particular, Michigan football history, there’s no one who tells the story, reveals fascinating historical nuggets and makes the whole ride entertaining like Kryk:

Other books include:  Jon Falk’s excellent Forty Years in the Big House’, Ken Magee and Jon Stevens’ well done, The Game: The Michigan Ohio State Rivalry’.  And this is New!  Wolverine – A Photographic History of Michigan Football.  I haven’t read this yet but I saw some early images they used for the project and it looks fantastic.
