ive noticed over the last 3 years that during player intros on tv the Michigan players never say Michigan or go blue but rather the high school they went to. All others say their college schools. What a shame

No, they most certainly do not. Plenty of them say their high school, or their hometown. You just don't notice because they're not "snubbing" Michigan.
 
And Avant has said Michigan plenty of times. Woodley says Michigan. This perceived snubbing is just Michigan fans having rabbit ears and believing everything is a mess.

The only real snub I remember (which is a semi snub) was when Braylon said "Lloyd Carr's University of Michigan". I have had no respect for the dude since that day.

Yeah, I caught Avant last night. I was excited because I actually was going to hear Michigan on a national stage, and he said his HS. Oh well, there certainly wasnt any other HS mentioned last night during player intros that I recall. So out of 44, 1 said HS, thats a snub in my book.

I know Vontae Davis of the Colts said his high school as well. It happens quite a bit.

I don't consider it a snub.  It's just punks being punks, which is all the NFL really is.  Anything to be different, anything to get noticed.  Of course, getting noticed on the field for your play, where it actually counts, becomes secondary.  The real irony in the whole thing is listening to these guys mumble their way through these things while trying to mention the HS they supposedly attended.  Apparently they were sick the day they taught English.

Gotta tip your hat to Jared Allen.  Guy wears number 69, sports a mullet ironically and he was in one of the Jackass movies.  He gives zero fvcks about a tidy public image.

You would think the outcome would be different coming from Michigan and being a "Michigan man"
