A visit to the Greenbush brewery in Sawyer with Grimalkin Belgian Ale and Contempt Stout. Now at home with a 3Floyd's Zombie Dust chaser

I listened to the Ufer call live (no TV) - I hit my head on the ceiling listening to the call - obviously not the highest ceiling, but still, what a great memory

I have the Stetson Derby that my grandfather wore to the first game played in the Big House. It is proudly displayed in an enclosure in my Michigan man cave.

Ufer was absolutely the best If you were a Michigan fan. Back in the day, you could not get all the games on tv. Ufer was our conduit to Michigan football. He is at least partially responsible for a very passionate fan base. His influence on the program obviously continues to run deep, up to the top of the program.

|1 year 12 weeks ago||First Ohio State game||
This was my first time at a Michigan vs. Ohio State game. I was living in West Virginia and planning to come back to Michigan the next week for Thanksgiving when I get a call about Thursday that my aunt had 2 tickets for me. No way I was not coming back for that game. Great memory and have not missed a home Ohio State game from that time forward.

I moved from Ann Arbor to southwest Michigan in the early 70's. No Internet. No ESPN. All you heard about was ND and Chicago sports. It was nearly impossible to get any info on Michigan, Tigers, Lions, etc. As such I hated ND almost as much as OSU (which came natural by birth).
In 1988 I had the opportunity to attend the game in South Bend by way of a mutual aquaintance knowing I would want to go to the game and him knowing someone who had two tickets. So the woman I sat next to I ended up marrying. Tomorrow our son and I will sit in the very same seats as my wife and I sat in that day in 1988. By the way, I say Gillette's field goal was good that day and will never watch a replay of it as I would not like to have fact get in the way of my superior opinion on that kick.
So my wife is an ND fan (though slowly through the years has migrated to Michigan, just need to get her over that final hurdle of this game). When our son was about 10 she asked him, "Why do you hate ND so much?". His response was priceless. "Because it is what Dad taught me to do". Gotta love that kid.
So I have been fortunate enough to be at evey Michigan-ND game since 1988 (home and away). So many great memories. UTL I was unbelievable, especially an hour after the game and so many people still in the stands.
I will miss this great game. Is it The Game, absolutely not. But it is a game that by ending the series is a loss for college football.

4 year starter and a 3 time captain. That is HoF worthy.
|4 years 49 weeks ago||38 - 0 Tradition||
It became tradition for the last two ND coaches to lose 38 - 0 to Michigan in their 2nd year (Willingham and Weiss). Kelly could not even get that right. But now he can make up for it this year and hang his own 38 - 0 loss on the wall. May the new ND tradition continue.

I would rather be Co than No.
Great job all season by the team and coaches.
Remember 4 years ago when we sat on the edge of our seats just to see if we were in. What a great progression for this program over the last few years.

|5 years 12 weeks ago||Be Loud Tomorrow||
I have been to evey home version of The Game since '85 and seen some amazing games. I will be so ready tomorrow (already am and have been). I was thinking about should or should not the field be stormed. These current UM students have never experienced a victory over Ohio. So that swayed me. I say yes and will enjoy watching them pour over the wall and onto the field tomorrow. I hope security is instructed to just let's it happen.

All week all I have been thinking abuot is beating Ohio. No that will not help the team on Saturday, so yes it is ok to think ahead and post your thoughts to the blog. But your voice, your voice needs to come with you on Saturday (for those of us at the game). Your voice will not make a tackle, a catch, a great cut back or a coaching adjustment. We will leave those things to Martin, Koger, Fitz, Hoke (and Staff) and the rest of the TEAM that is running under the banner on Saturday. But your voice can and should create an atmosphere that disrupts Ohio's thoughts and causes them to make mistake after mistake.
Go Blue! Beat Ohio and see you in New Orleans, Miami, Glendale, Tampa, Orlando or wherever we need to go to follow our beloved Wolverines.

My wife works for Notre Dame and comes from a family that roots for Notre Dame. When my son was born she kept telling me that I had to let him choose, Michigan or Notre Dame. Well when I returned from the 1994 Colorado game my brother-in-law was there having my 4 year old son saying "Michigan stinks". It was at that moment that the gloves came off and his destiny was set to be a Michigan fan. He learned about Fielding Yost, Willie Heston, Germany Schultz, Bennie Oosterbaan, Fritz Crisler, Tommy Harmon, Ron Kramer, Bo Schembechler, Bob Ufer, etc, etc. He learned to call the Big House home. 17 years later he will be in the student section one last time and is on target to walk into the Big House this spring a student and walk out a graduate.
When he was about 10 or 11 he was asked at a family gathering why he hated Notre Dame so much. His response, "that is what Dad taught me to do". Brought a tear to my eye. And his dislike for Ohio runs much deeper as it should.

2nd bad call against Morgan in the last couple minutes. At worst, that should be a no call. If a call, Morgan looked set.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||1 down||
Announcers are right. We need to take it inside. Get an advantage by getting the 4 foul guys out of the game. Got a break on the D end getting the first one out of the game
