“On the offense last year, they had great spacing. That’s what I remember. Great spacing, great shooters, like Nik Stauskas, who’s not there right now. But they always have someone to fill the roles. They have a cutting offense, kind of hard to guard.”
Well, with 8 days left until this season kicks off I feel like this would be a fun time to have everyone on the greatest UM site tell stories about their favorite Michigan football moment. This doesn't necessarily have to be an in-game moment, but can involve memories from tailgating, fant interactions etc.
I guess I'll start:
I actually have 2. My first was when I asked my dad why he was a Michigan fan and why he had raised me to be a Michigan fan. He told me he became a Michigan fan after a weekend in Columbus as a high school senior. He rode his bike from his brother's house to the Horseshoe and snuck onto the field and sat at the fifty yard line. He got caught and was subsequently fined by the University for trespassing. This pissed him off and thus be was henceforth a Michigan fan. Therefore, had my father not been busted that day, I would have probably been raised an OSU fan. Thank Christ that isn't the case.
The second is my first trip to the Big House. UM-Iowa in 1997. The game was amazing, but the first moment walking into the stadium will be with me for the rest of my life.
I have a recording of a parody of University of Ohio State's fight song from the 1970s (I think) that Michigan radio stations used to play. It is awesome. "Husband-hunting dames" is a wonderful insult. Enjoy:
If anyone has more info on this - origin, singers, year, etc., - it would be appreciated. Or if you have an original recording without the "Tressel" dub.
EDIT: I see Spawn of Mzone also posted this last year, but this is a better quality recording.
