Michigan First up on SiriusXM College Sports Nation

Submitted by nyc_wolverines on October 21st, 2012 at 4:32 PM

Garvie Craw's son was the first caller to Sirius' College Sports Nation show this AM. He mentioned "My dad would be smiling down from heaven now, a great win for Michigan yesterday." The announcers were generally positive re Michigan's win over MSU, but for whatever reason they still picked OSU over the Wolverines in November. Our men will shock the media on Urban's turf.

Touching to see how Craw instilled in his son a passion for Michigan and our beloved Wolverines.  GO BLUE!

For those interested, the Bentley Library summary of Michigan's epic 1969 win and Craw's two TDs. Never gets old.

Going into the season, I gave OSU homefield advantage and picked them to beat us this year. I change my pick now with the way our defense is playing, and the way theirs is playing. I think it could be another high-scoring game similar to last year, but I think Braxton and OSU will have a much tougher time moving the ball against us than we will against them.

1969 like it was yesterday.  It was a nice day as November's go.  My Dad was not a huge Michigan fan but he hated ohio.  We were watching it on a 19" Black and White TV.  My Dad said, "There is no way this young kid can beat those rednecks".

When we finally pulled it off, Dad screamed with excitement; "that sonsah bitch did it.  He beat those Redneck bastards"  I was hooked.  I never missed watching an ohio game in my life.

This brings back some wonderful memories.  We will prevail in November and beat those rednecks.

I sincerely doubt it. It may make a loss a tiny bit more bearable, especially if we win the B1G title game, but the way Hoke has been putting an emphasis on The Game for the past two years I would be shocked if we didn't try just as hard as we did last year.

People are insane that see that Ohio team beating us. Their defense is terrible. I don't care where we play, the horseshoe, the freaking moon. I think penn state beats them this week. I think we can put forty on them in late November.
