College football fans know that U-M Football is down right now, but they will rise again! At least the M-Den store in Ann Arbor believes that... they are currently showcasing this piece in their brand new flagship store steps from The Big House. Created entirely from a box of discarded Michigan license plates from 1967... They just so happened to be maize and blue and from thence, this design was born!
