We can do this because people support us. You should support them too so they’ll want to do it again next year! The show is presented by UGP & The Bo Store, and if it wasn’t for Rishi and Ryan we’d be talking to ourselves.
Our other sponsors are also key to all of this: HomeSure Lending, Peak Wealth Management, Ann Arbor Elder Law, the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, the University of Michigan Alumni Association, Michigan Law Grad, Human Element, Lantana Hummus and Ecotelligent Homes
1. MSU After UFR: Pitch a Bitch
starts at 1:00
Ace lays out all the takes to pick out which ones are valuable and which are fire/stupid. One and four: dumb. Time for Peters? Might be. Fire Drevno? Right tackle was bad but the offensive line as a whole stepped forward. Long discussion on going to concerts.
2. Indiana Preview
starts at 32:15
They’ve benched their quarterback for a redshirt freshman—maybe he’ll throw the ball to unstoppable receiving god Simmie Cobbs. That’s not the end of Indiana’s receiving threats though they’re a bit banged up. That is the end of their offense. Their defense is Michigan-lite. They’re going to wreck us there.
3. Gimmicky Top Five: Favorite Play-by-Play Calls of All Time
starts at 46:00
Gus Johnson, Keith Jackson, Bill Raftery, Kenny Albert, Bob Ufer, and Rychialivyak Llissander Wolffsbaan Þormundur III (I think that’s his name) top our lists of favorite all-time announcer calls, a segment we came up with because we were all excited about…
4. People Doing Impressions of Bob Ufer
starts at 1:12:24
Steve “Dr. Sap” Sapardanis, Michigan historian and a man who knew more about Schembechler’s Michigan than Millie joins us to pay tribute the legendary Michigan broadcaster Bob Ufer. In the 40s and 50s, as America was still mired in its McCarthyism, Ufer was the color and enthusiasm in a black and white Pleasantville world. He conveyed to you through his broadcast style that it was ok to be who you are and not be someone else or someone that somebody else wanted you to be. At least that’s what Sap meant to say when Brian asked him for his thoughts and he kind of wistfully said “Yeah. Yeah.”
Also we have Ace try to perform some Ufer-isms, and Dennis from the OC calls in to show us what a real Ufer impressionist sounds like. Also Bo does a spot-on Ufer. Also Brian’s kid.
If you or a friend made some good tunes and don't have a label out scrubbing for them we'd be happy to feature you. This week our bumper music was provided by On The Line from their album Color Tour. The songs were “Road of Reoccurrence”, “Lydia”, and “Red Skies.” Plus “Across 110th Street”.
Ufer tracks are available at www.ufer.org
