UM: Little Brown Jug

It’s the 100th anniversary of the first football game between rivals Michigan and Minnesota in which the Little Brown Jug was awarded to the winner, and Greg Dooley of MVictors does some sleuthing about the authenticity of that trophy: “One of the critical questions I asked when I started research was this: Is the jug that Michigan equipment manager Jon Falk has tucked away the same crock that was purchased by U-M student manager Tommy Roberts in Minneapolis back in 1903 and returned to Fielding Yost in 1909?” To answer that question, Dooley enlists the aid of Ryan Forrey, master potter at The Henry Ford Museum/Greenfield Village, to inspect the jug in person.
