Forgive me for the embedding failure I lost my note on how to do that. This video by our good friend WolverineHistorian has me seriously even more psyched for September 1st. LETS GET THIS SEASON GOING!!!
100 Michigan Touchdowns. It doesnt get any better than this!
I loved it!!!!! Thanks for sharing the Best of Times (no I'm not going to introduce Styx to the youngsters!)
It had me at #1
# 27 is so random by the way.
If I cried a little does that make me less of a man, or more of a Michigan fan?
I seriously can not wait for fall.
That was 22 minutes of my life well spent.
Liked, would recommend to a friend.
I think the announcer really overdid it for #79.
Was that the anouncing convention in the 40s?
This video is a little bundle of joy sent from heaven. Sadly though, the entire 20 minutes all i could think about is how undeniably shitty game announcers are these days. Even just ten years ago they were exponentially better. Its like they think theyre too cool to get excited or something. Joe Buck syndrome I think it's called. Ive never cared enough to do the radio audio with the tv thing but I think Im gonna have to this year, assuming I can make it work in Ohio. I just need an announcer who understands why I sometimes need to sprint a lap atound my house after a Wolverine touchdown.
these guys seem excited:
Awesome. I spent 22 minutes and did not regret it.
I have to say, I was hoping for a little more Steve Breaston, but I guess that's what the rest of youtube is for.
The third one gets me a little pissed because of how nice and plain the away jerseys once were way back in 2006...
One: i had almost forgotten how often we broke Psu hearts
two: denards first TD was missing.
Posts like that are why I come here!
All I could think about the whole time was how boring the jerseys were...
I get goosebumps every time Anthony Carter breaks that last tackle against Indiana.
tip of the cap to you, good sir
Wait a second,100 Michigan touchdowns and no John Navarre Buffalo Stampede? I call shenanigans.
Awesome video. So jacked for Fall.
If I had to pick a favorite it'd probably be the Ty Wheatley run. Not because of imporatance, but just the display of athleticism. Perfect combination of speed and power.
is "the catch" - 4th down vs. ND at The Big House, Grbac to Desmond. The video crapped out on me, so maybe it's in there but I couldn't see it.
Great call by Musberger in his heyday too.
"Grbac to fire for it. He went for it all! A diving catch for a touchdown! Holy cow! Would you believe this!"
The 91 ND game may have my greatest football moment as a Michigan student. Ended 4 years of frustration against Holtz and the Irish. I just remember sitting in the stadium with a contented grin on my face for like a half hour after the game ended. Glorious.
Double post fail, but yes I liked it this much.
Great vid. A lot of memories. I'm surprised there wasn't a single Ricky Powers TD. He was one of my favorites despite some of his fumbling problems.
That was darn-tootin!
Wolverine Historian is the shit! It's amazing how much old film and memories he has to share.
This is the awesomest! Must watch on infinite loop. This is why I hate my job - it keeps me from basking in pure Columbian awesome 24/7.
This is glorious.
I feel stupid, but I didn't know Marlin Jackson wore #20.
So many memories. Thank you
But how the heck did you leave out the Navarre-era Transcontinental?
and THANK YOU for making that.
What a wonderful trip down memory lane.
now i have to watch it again because i can not stop grinning.
I LOVE hearing those words...TOUCHDOWN MICHIGAN!! I cannot wait for the season to start...Thanks for posting...AWESOME video
Can someone explain to me what's going on in #27? I'm colorblind and confused.
I woke up and watched this first thing, and I am officially more pumped than the coffee could ever make me.
A few standouts (really, they all are):
#24 - I sort of miss MSU making more Michigan touchdowns possible. Getting tackled into your own end zone after a blocked punt? Yes, thanks.
#31 - I'll never get tired of watching that return by Woodson.
#56 - Harbaugh-to-Kolesar...almost forgot how well that combination worked.
I will watch this again later, I think.
#27 is one of the seven TDs we scored in the 49-0 bitch-slapping, curb stomping beat-down of USC in the Jan. 1, 1948 Rose Bowl. Although ranked second in the AP at the end of the regular season, the Wolverines were selected as the nation's No. 1 team over Notre Dame in a special AP Poll taken after the bowl games.
Aside from the age of the film, another thing that makes it look weird is that both Michigan and USC wore their home jerseys in the game.

My guess is that it's film rather than a TV broadcast, and that the fakey crowd noise was added many years ago.

Bless your heart!
Every time I see Charles Woodson return that punt agaist osu I get goosebumps. I remember that day, one of my last as a student at UM. It was just beautiful.
Wow, I didn't expect this kind of feedback. Thanks, guys. When I was saving the file, I kept asking myself if this was a dumb idea for a video (the same thing I thought for the Bo yelling at officials vid.) Maybe I should trust my gut more.
I knew once I finished it, there would be several TD's I should have included but forgot. I tried to include 30 TD's from each of the last 3 decades and the remaining 10 be pre-1980.
Also, I feel sad that I only got to see 3 of these 100 in person. I need to start going to bigger games.
You've provided an incredible service to Michigan fans everywhere. I can't imagine there's an equal archive of game videos and highlights that's been compiled for any other school.
Dumb idea? Not at all. The only thing that would've made this better would be if the title of your post was 150 Michigan touchdowns. More please!
You could probably make a highlight video of greatest wins over MAC opponents and we'd all watch it
Not only I thank you, but my father thanks you, my brother thanks you and even my sister thanks you!
Best part was the announcer for the Snow Bowl vs. OSU. It could have just been from a recap show or something like that, but his monotone description of the event made it that much more exhilarating.
This video, along with the Denard speech, made my day. Nothing like some UM highlights to brighten what has been a very somber week for me after losing my mother. Thank you WH!
Wasn't it fabulous!? I played them over & over &.....
Great video. Sorry you only got to see 3 live. You deserve honorary tickets for all the work you do for M fans enjoyment on youtube. I was there for 7.
Will always be my all-time favorite since that was my first Michigan football game.
That was ...TREMENDOUS
The only two that I epexted to see were Denard's very first and off course Tate's keeper up the middle on ND where the defender's jock was found on about the 40 yard line.
Am I supposed to seek medical help if goosebumps from this video last >4hours?
MY GOD, I love this sport, and this team.
This made my day. Watched it once, grabbed another drink, watched it again. Wolverine Historian is my hero.
I wonder what watching the 100 most painful Michigan football moments would be like.
Assuming we could even compile 100.
If we're thinking about spinoff vids a top 25 field goals would be a great one.
OR, 100 best defensive stops/tackles.
ESPN Classic featured those moments 365 days a year, from 1997 to 2007. That was one of the main reasons I started my account.
Really, really awesome! I miss the toilet paper streamers after touchdowns.
