This video is a little bundle of joy sent from heaven. Sadly though, the entire 20 minutes all i could think about is how undeniably shitty game announcers are these days. Even just ten years ago they were exponentially better. Its like they think theyre too cool to get excited or something. Joe Buck syndrome I think it's called. Ive never cared enough to do the radio audio with the tv thing but I think Im gonna have to this year, assuming I can make it work in Ohio. I just need an announcer who understands why I sometimes need to sprint a lap atound my house after a Wolverine touchdown.

Awesome.  I spent 22 minutes and did not regret it.

I have to say, I was hoping for a little more Steve Breaston, but I guess that's what the rest of youtube is for.

Awesome video.  So jacked for Fall.

If I had to pick a favorite it'd probably be the Ty Wheatley run.  Not because of imporatance, but just the display of athleticism.  Perfect combination of speed and power.

is "the catch" - 4th down vs. ND at The Big House, Grbac to Desmond.  The video crapped out on me, so maybe it's in there but I couldn't see it.

I woke up and watched this first thing, and I am officially more pumped than the coffee could ever make me.

A few standouts (really, they all are):

#24 - I sort of miss MSU making more Michigan touchdowns possible. Getting tackled into your own end zone after a blocked punt? Yes, thanks.

#31 - I'll never get tired of watching that return by Woodson.

#56 - Harbaugh-to-Kolesar...almost  forgot how well that  combination worked.

I will watch this again later, I think.

#27 is one of the seven TDs we scored in the 49-0 bitch-slapping, curb stomping beat-down of USC in the Jan. 1, 1948 Rose Bowl. Although ranked second in the AP at the end of the regular season, the Wolverines were selected as the nation's No. 1 team over Notre Dame in a special AP Poll taken after the bowl games.

Aside from the age of the film, another thing that makes it look weird is that both Michigan and USC wore their home jerseys in the game.

Wolverine Historian has the full game highlights here:

My guess is that it's film rather than a TV broadcast, and that the fakey crowd noise was added many years ago.
