Michigan vs Baylor 1997 (Video, WH-style editing)

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on February 24th, 2012 at 2:07 PM

With this game I have uploaded, all 12 of Michigan's wins in the 1997 National Championship Season are online. I edited my video very similar to WolverineHistorian.

I have seen a lot of requests on his channel for this game, so I figure I would upload it. This is my first time uploading highlights and editing, so let me know how I did. In the coming days, I will be uploading some classic Michigan Basketball and Michigan Hockey games.

I was at that game, when I was just a kid. My mother went to Baylor, so I was rooting for the Bears at the time...as much good as it did them. Funny how things change.

That's why I put these up.

I would love to see WH put up Michigan-san diego state 2004, or even for myself to come across a copy of it online. I hold that game very close to my heart even though it was an ugly win, because it was Mike Hart's coming out party.

Right now I am currently working on Michigan-miami university 2004. It was the first game of the year when true freshman Chad Henne was unexpectedly thrown into the starting QB spot the morning of the game. It was his first game and he did pretty well.

Ernest Shazor taking the INT to the house for 80-some yards still makes me feel like I'm out of breath just how fast he got down there.

I've been in reupload mode for a couple months now, making better versions of games I did years ago because all videos from 2007 and 2008 have HORRIBLE picture quality now, not to mention horrible editing by yours truly who didn't really know what he was doing at the time. 

Starting March 7th, YouTube is going to automatically update all channels to it's crappy new format which looks awful - shorter profile, bigger thumbnails, no feature video, no bulletin board and it's harder to navigate.  So anyone who wants to give me a request will probably have to send me a private message. 

I've gotten a ton of requests for that ugly game against Syracuse at the Carrier Dome from 99.  That's in the to do pile.

Thanks for the work you put in. - just a few suggestions.  I would leave out the PAT's, maybe less crowd shots, and cut the time coming out of the huddle so that it is mostly all action.  Also, show more of the dirves, not just the plays down by the goal line - it will give the game more continuity.   Good first effort and I look forward to more in the future.

I was pretty young though. All I really remember is that we absolutely destroyed them, and that by the end of the game there were marshmellows everywhere
