Don’t Give It Up….

brown jugThis Saturday Michigan will play Minnesota for I believe the 114th time, or near about anyway.  They play annually for the Little Brown Jug, college football’s oldest trophy game.  The story of the Little Brown Jug goes back all the way to 1903 and is quite an interesting tale.  Look it up.  This quote from Michigan Head Coach Brady Hoke really hits the heart.  Can you imagine losing and then have the other team come to your sideline and ask for their trophy, and you having to give it up.  Not only would it be dishearting but embarrassing as well.  If this doesn’t light a fire under the team nothing will.
