Blues the ONE

Rule or not, the fumbling out of bound didn't need to happen.  We still had a timeout left!

For years I have watched replays of that final drive thinking we got away with something with the toss out of bounds. Only today did I notice that Michigan had one timeout left. 

There were 4 seconds left on the clock. Plenty of time to call that last timeout

My Father and Grandfather were at this game.  I grew up hearing about most of their section had left but they stayed to the very end.  It was the greatest comeback they saw live and one of their favorite Michigan moments.  My Dad had an audio cassette tape of Ufer's call of that game and would play it before big games.  I probably heard the call a dozen times before I ever actually saw the play.

I felt the same sense of pride having stayed to see entire comeback against Virginia in '95 when a lot of students and fans had given up and left.  That said, I tapped out and left the Perdue/Michigan game in '95 late in the 3rd quarter.  My devotion is strong but not that strong.

I was at the game, on a date with my wife-to-be.  When the ball got lateraled out of bounds by the RB, the whole stadium went quiet - none of us had seen that before.  Good times.

The 2 women sitting in front of us in section 19 (husbands sitting elsewhere that day) left as Indiana scored.  When we ran into them as we were leaving the stadium, they asked us not to tell their hubands the next week.  We promised.  Squealed on them immediately at the next game.  Did not hear Ufer's PBP until back at the car.  Great day.

I have a lot of respect and great memories for Frank Beckman- but it has been long enough.

The rightful heir to Bob Ufer's place in the broadcast booth is out there. The media department needs to find him (or her!) now!  A complete Michigan Man.  Completely eccentric.  No one gives a crap about fair and biased pbp for our beloved football team!  Turn on the TV to listen to lifeless boring calls of a game.  Find an unabashed homer.  It will be glorious.

Just as Bo had Ufer leading the propaganda machine- Harbaugh needs the same!

I was 22 in my Senior year and sitting way up around 30 yard line. That remains my most endearing football memory. I do not remember much of that evening as my roommates and I with many friends consumed mass quantities of various adult beverages as did many thousands roaming the streets and bars of the city.
