ATLANTA (AP) -- There were plenty of signs popping up all around the Georgia Dome for the national championship.

Some of them witty. Some of them cruel. Most of them funny.

One sign helped up by a Michigan fan featured a picture of Glenn Robinson III, whose father was a star player at Purdue. It was accompanied by the words, "Daddy never did that!" -- as in, the "Big Dog" never played for a national championship with the Boilermakers.

A few sections over, a Louisville fan held up a similar looking sign -- it was on yellow cardstock, too -- with a picture of former Wolverines star Chris Webber. But the words pasted onto it carried a much different tone: "Timeouts left: -1."

Don't get the joke? Ask a Michigan fan.
