Neither of those games appeal to me.

I humbly submit the Wolverine Devotee highlights of the Florida bowl game, available on YouTube:

EDIT: ... aaaaand the damn link isn't working...

Fuck it, I'll beat this dead horse again when I'm sure the topic is still on page 2 or 3.

These games suck and BTN is bad and should feel bad. Appreciate the reminders, but few want to watch this awfulness. Save the reminders for when it's Michigan day on BTN or they're at fall camp for the day. These 2 games have been aired over and over for years and many of us are trying our best to forget about them.

Like I said before...show any of the wins from last year before even thinking about airing one of these games. At least we'll see returning players and have that to get excited about.

are some losses that I would love to watch again at this point, with enough distance between them and me now, but there is no variety in the games that BTN or ESPN classic show. Like 2003 Oregon. Awful, horrific loss, but one hell of an entertaining game. Why do these networks insist on showing the same games over and over again. The lack of updated inventory is staggering.

I used to love when BTN would show old games once in awhile. Now it appears that they only show games that were broadcasted in high def originally, which happen to coincide with the worst years in UM history. No thanks

screamed so loud when they came back, waking a very grumpy and pregnant wife. Induced labor, and Abner was born the very next day. Ill always have fond memories of that game.

If BTN needs footage of more than a few crappy games from the RichRod and Hoke years, they are more than welcome to contact me for something different. Nothing wrong with a little variety.

Honestly, screw the BTN and their "Instant Classics".  I was looking through what games they were showing for other teams, and even though they were only showing ~3 games per team, EVERY team had a game where they beat us: Maryland 2014, Rutgers 2014, Purdue 2009...  Like, all shit shows between 2 bad teams.  I get showing OSU 2006 and 2016, but all the rest?  Then they come to us and they show 2013 NW and 2008 Wisky, in addition to 2016 Wisky.  Like really?  I didn't even bother to look to see any other teams/games once I got to us, as I'm sure the pattern continues.  Obiviously someone there hates us, and loves trolling us, but whatever.

I watched parts of both games.

But just so my lack of off-season standards is clear, Lockup Fairfax on MSNBC tonight also looks kind of promising.

Sept. 2, please.
