A good finish in an otherwise no-so-typical Michigan season...
I had been getting a lot of messages to make another TEAM134 video so I made a trailer to get you pumped up for the season.. I cant embedd tried the old embedd and switched to plain text and did not work.. Here is the link
I haven't made a video since January, when ZFR flipped me the bird and had YouTube block 2/3 of my account. Apparently, compilation videos are fair game as all of them are still up. With that said, I'd like to make one. Ace's Keith Jackson thread made me nostalgic and since he broadcasted more Michigan games than any other school for nearly 3 decades, I thought I would make a vid dedicated to his most memorable quotes during Michigan football games.
To help me out here, I want you all to list your favorite Keith Jackson quotes. Whether they are pregame speak, calls of plays or random funny quotes like the time he said, "Clarence Williams grandmother could have scored that one," when we played Notre Dame in 97. Stuff like that.
And since I'm anti-misery, painful moments are not allowed.
So, list away if you can and I'll go find them.
Anyone have a good one that I can use for my comp backround?
Since the latest upgrades to Michigan Stadium, I continue to hunt and peck around the ‘net for tidbits regarding some of the processes that went into the $226 million “facelift” and came across this interesting piece on who and how the new signs and wayfinding were made, including the shields that outline the lower concourse.
I found enjoyable that the name of the company used to produce the graphics was 'Harmon Sign.' How apropos.
Good article from Rittenberg on the slower pace of Nebraska recruiting due to their geographic isolation and consequent need to rely on official (university-paid) visits rather than unofficial (prospect-paid) visits. I don't know about you guys, but I've always wondered why Nebraska - despite consistently ranking among the top 25 recruiting classes nationally and in the top 3 recruiting classes in the conference - always seems to have such a sluggish start in receiving verbals.
Of course, it will be interesting to see if Nebraska is able to sustain their recruiting success with now even elite prospects feeling tremendous pressure to commit before their senior year of high school.
