lived at 3 different addresses ... however the last home was 308 Arbana, and I was told that the title search contained the previous owners names .... which included a Michigan Legend ... Benny Oosterbahn.  

Go Blue!

Not an athlete but the original owners of my current house on Stadium were the Castors who also owned the Pretzel Bell. 

Old timers on this site will know that the Pretzel Place was THE place to drink in the 50's, 60's and 70's in Ann Arbor.

We're attempting to live up to their  high standards of party hosting.

Yeah, the Pretzel Bell was the place to go after games back then.

I went once in the early '80's and apparently it was a shadow of its former self. It had already been shut down for health code violations and was struggling. The food was bad and, like a lot of others, I never returned.

I could give you a driving tour and point out Bo's first Ann Arbor house on Arlington, Canham's house on Newcastle and Bob Ufer's house on Glenwood.  Ufer drove a maize and blue Buick I think.

I lived in South Quad - Fred House during my freshman year, but can't remember the number. I really hope it was 1814 (thats where Desmond lived).

Does anybody have a floor plan that lists the dorm numbers? Google wasn't helpful. Or maybe somebody remembers the numbers? I was 1st floor Fred, at the very end of the hallway that goes east/west, on the south side of the hall.

Landlord's fix-it guy told us that Gabe Watson's girlfriend lived there. As one story goes, they were trying to get a metal pole out of the ground and after not succeeding with a truck, Gabe volunteered with a three point stance and took it right out of the ground. Dunno how true it is but I'll buy it!

One of my friends lived in a house on the corner of South U. and Oxford (don't remember the exact address, 588 Oxford, maybe?), that was nicknamed Heisman house well before Nissan's commercial series of the same name.  The purported former resident?  Desmond Howard.

Some guy came to visit us on football Saturdays and said he used to hang out there and one tenant used to date Jane Fonda back in the day, possibly before/after or during the Tom Hayden courtship. It may have been Hayden he never said. But Jane used to hang out there all the time.  I'm not really sure on the whole timeline so I can't narrow it down.
