"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Great Video about THE BANNER
Thanks for the post. Is this your first good one?
Thanks for that. It's about time to contributed something "positive" around here.
Nice video. That Zoltan footage still makes me LOL.
Oh, poor Zoltan
Now, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to remember they hauled out some ancient banner from the 70's for that 1998 Syracuse game, but there was some stipulation the players couldn't touch it because it was falling apart. For some reason that sticks out in my mind.
Also, I remember seeing the banner get hauled out for basketball games in the early-to-mid 90's.
thanks, i gave you a point for this and now you are only at -269
tUOS ripping down the banner pisses me off every time I see it...talk about classless.
I didnt know about the 98 incident with Syracuse. It makes sense, and now we know why they lost that game.
It makes me want to scalp those buckeyes.
I was at that game and can't remember the banner incident either. I do remember having a killer nose bleed that left a fairly good sized puddle of blood in section 19 row 92.
btw...I like that announcers maize and blue striped tie
This is a pretty amazing post!
A) Found a loophole in the system allowing you to post a new topic with negative points, or,
B) Got negbanged close to 300 points in less than 2 hours.
Either one is pretty impressive!
Also, this is a good video... saw it on BTN before the game this past Saturday!
I like how Tate said his mom told him to go slow so she could get a picture. Gotta love mom's, they ruin everything.
DId u see the video of Tate talking about his mom and his conversation on him starting?
Thanks for this.
the Buckeyes smash up the banner made me super pissed at 4:46am.
yeah, Im so fired up for this years game...those arrogant truck driving fuckers are due a big time ass whipping... our offense has a good shot at getting it done.
Thanks a lot I needed that to start my day....I'm so grateful to be able to say that I'm a fan of MICHIGAN FOOTBALL.
the "Maize and Blue Faithful singing a rousing chorus of The Victors" and the team coming out under the banner are the great spectacles in sports.
I get fired up and chills up the spine just thinking about it. If I ever get rid of my tickets, that will be the part I miss the most.
Just don't get rid of your tickets. Then you won't miss the greatest spectacle in all of college football! Period.
Is this the same video that was played about 30 minutes before the EMU @ Michigan game on Saturday?
I just want to know who knows the secret location for the banner.
All this time I thought it was because Brady played such an awful game and McNabb was so good.
That Bob Ufer radio segment during the OSU section is awesome. With all due respect to Beckmann, Brandstatter, and Karsch, Ufer is the man when it comes to Michigan Football.
A reason why Michigan Football is what it is today is due to who was a part of Michigan Football then.
Imagine for a minute the names like Canham, the Athletic Director who knew how to market Michigan Football, brought in Schembechler; Schembechler, the greatest coach Michigan ever had, brought in the fans; and Ufer, the greatest broadcaster Michigan ever had, led the cheers. Still to this day the greatest trio of names in Michigan Football history.
Clever ruse to subject my eyes to another ROTEL commercial.
Oh, by the way, I hope you've signed up for the Bowl Bound Sweepstakes!
There was outrage over the OSU team's behavior. Back then, however, it was hoped that by having the other team come out first, and stand around, watching Michigan pour into the Stadium under the banner, was what we wanted. No more.
Arguably, that 1973 game might be the best football game I ever saw in Michigan Stadium (I was not at the 1969 game). Personally, I think the 1971 (Woody Hayes-meets-the-down-marker) game was better.
