Mike Lantry, 1972
So, I'm innocently fast forwarding through most of the Michigan-Michigan State hockey game, trying to assign blame and credit. When I stop right before the second State goal, the play-by-play guy says this, verbatim:
When we got done [talking to Jack Johnson, Sr.] he said "my son will be here for at least two years at Michigan, you can be sure of that."
I've heard that from a second source who also had talked with Johnson, Sr., though the timeframe was not expressed so explicitly. Now I know we've been burned before, but I'm just saying. Just sayin'. Tentative yay!
By the way, the two-minute crosschecking penalty was definitely a hit from behind into the boards and should have been five and a game. But y'all probably knew that.
