Excited but disappointed.
Michigan plans on honoring Tom Harmon, the 1940 Heisman winner before the game and giving his number to a player with the Legends patch (what happened with Desmond before the 2011 game).
Tom Harmon was the greatest player in Michigan Football history. Nobody should get to wear that number, ever again. He did everything. Passed, rushed, caught passes, played defense, kicked, punted, returned punts and kickoffs. He even received a standing ovation in columbus in 1940 after Michigan won 40-0 because of his outstanding performance in that game.
He later went into the military and fought in WWII. He was shot down by an enemy and walked to safety. When he came back, the doctors said he was too banged up to play offense ever again. So he played defense in the NFL. His son, Mark Harmon, most noted for being on the NCIS program on CBS played QB at UCLA. He didn't want to come to Michigan because he didn't want to keep being compared to his father and obviously the expectations would be higher than a skyscraper with his last name.

Thanks for the back story, I was not aware of any of that. The night game and pageantry will make for a great atmosphere in Ann Arbor for the Irish to come in and administer a beatdown. Reps.
