For the amusement of the young people who've grown up with internet pornography, here's the moral doomsday scenario they imagined coming to pass, due to smut mags and salacious books, back in the 60s. Starring our own Tom Harmon.
And a news story on the film and its history http://registerguard.com/rg/news/local/33950843-75/story.csp
Mike Murphy, Michigan's first head coach
Got word from The Bentley Library today that they'll be offering extended hours on November 8 (Friday before the Nebraska game), staying open from 5pm to 8 pm. Greg Kinney and Brian Williams will be giving a presentation on some of Michigan's football firsts showing some of the unique photos and documents available at the Bentley.
They'll also offer extending viewing hours for the "Harmon of Michigan" exhibit and at least one showing of the 1965 TV program "One Saturday Afternoon" celebrating the 25th anniversary of Harmon's extraordinary 1940 season featuring game footage and interviews with Harmon, Crisler and Forest Evashevski. They'll also show Yost's 1st contract, the original team #1 photo and other gems to highlight some unique aspects of Michigan's football history.
I'm in the market for my first ever Michigan football jersey. Ever since I was a kid I wanted a #1 jersey (because of David Terrell). Now they don't really use that number, or even sell that jersey (except for a few places).
I'm wondering if the #98 jersey will become the new #1. Each year it will be given to the best player. Potentially you could always have the jersey of the best player. I guess it's hard to say how often they will give it out. If all else fails it's still a Tom Harmon jersey.
EDIT: ONE OF the best players. Better?
Each costs $125.
OK, so he means Tom Herman, not Harmon.
Well, he might have said it......I mean it's right there in black and white.
"Tom Harmon has one of the bright young minds in college football," Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said of his coach who is, indeed, intellectual enough to be a member of the national high-IQ society, MENSA. "His philosophies are very similar to those of my own."
Tom Harmon at Ohio State 1940:
Since today is Veteran's Day, I got to thinking of Michigan football players who were veterans. I remember watching Mike Lantry, the Vietnam Vet and FG kicker, on TV as a kid. I know Tom Harmon also served following his career at Michigan. Are there other veterans you can think of who played Michigan football (or other sports, for that matter)?
