I visited the Tom Harmon exhibit at the Bentley Historical Library today. It was a bit smaller than I had hoped but well worth the trip.
Make sure you read the old-timey newspaper articles about Tom Harmon. There is a scrapbook by Bill Koontz (in the display as you walk in) that has dozens of the articles. The article about Tom Harmon's 168 yard single running play is spectacular.
Here is a recap of one of the articles:
Seems Michigan had there very own clock fiasco at Franklin Field (Philadelphia) against Penn in 1939. Penn scored to get within 2 at 19-17 with 38 seconds left and then recovered the onside kick. Penn tried to call a time out (apparently the clock did not stop with change of possession) but was not granted one. The clock continued to run as the Penn coaches argued with the refs and finally ran out. Fans rushed the field and the refs had to be escorted out by the police.
This time they dump those awful ones from last year and return to the ones they wore in 2011-12. The only difference is the B1G patch.
Mr. Hand employs a unique technique to stop a ball carrier this past weekend. Rather than trying to embed for an hour in the OP I will just do it in the 2nd post. This is courtesy of Mlive.
Just typing that line is difficult. I have never seen this posted on this site, so apologies if it was up here long ago. Thanks to EDSBS for actually finding this video of a 1997 interview with GERG and some of his players about the beaver, it "being out" according to Romanowski and even one beaver hanging on a noose(!). You get about 30 seconds into this and the wheels will literally come off your brain because we hired this guy. I would suggest getting up and taking a short walk around to sort yourself out, it helped me.
Detroit News article on Under The Lights III in 2014. The opponent is TBA.
Brandon said it (obviously) won't be a November game or even a late October game. But it will be a B1G conference team that is a "big brand" and a sexy matchup.
2014 home schedule-

Not too many choices.
