"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

First game of 1978 (unusually, they opened with a Big Ten opponent - Illinois), the band played Beatles "Birthday", and the students roared "sh$%", at every break. They have never played it again. What good is the "Sh&%" Band if you can't participate in the appropriate manner? Bring it back, for Bo's sake!

Washington State is a good choice if we dare go back to the West Coast for the return game. It would be at Qwest Field in Seattle, where Wazzu is playing approx one game a year now in Sept.

THE Modern offensive player for Michigan was A.C.
Before A.C., Michigan was 3 yards and a cloud of dust.
During his career, we never had an All American quarterback or any other receiver to offer the defense, so you knew the ball was going from Smith/Hewlett/Wangler to a triple teamed A.C., and it still didn't matter. The Indiana game is still our Hail Mary, and it doesn't happen if spindly legs A.C. doesn't deke the corner and outrun the safety, effectively sending Corso to the broadcast booth. He beat Notre Dame and OSU and lit Bo's cigar against Washington.
After A.C., stud receivers for sure, including several who have worn his number. But any who the opposing defense would purposely tear his tear-away jersey so he'd have to sit a play? Any who ran punts back like A.C.? One could argue that Harbaugh and Grbac led the offensive changes at Michigan in the 80's that became the pro passing offense and undefeated seasons in the 90's, but I say none of this happens if Bo doesn't take a flier on a skinny and shy Florida kid.
Argue all you want about the other positions, but receiver is Anthony Carter and some other guy, period.

2 plays in that game. The first half Michigan punt where our punter puts his knee down fielding a low snap, and the last 2nd Rick Leach drive that ends when the ball rolls over our running back's back (Huckleby?, Davis?) and into the hands of Michael Jackson for the Huskies. If we win, we're National Champs, no?
