If anyone is watching. Something to talk about other than the game.

I actually want to watch i was pretty young then , but I remember it.  BUT...... When they put Denny Green and Dave Brandon up in the god damn booth during the game, I wanted to rip my fuckin eyes out.   Promote the goddamn show, but that was ridiculous.

Ha! Dennis Franklin talking about what would seem to be the hitherto unknown gesture of putting the ball in the air with one hand to celebrate a TD was pretty amusing. 

"Ladies and gentleman, can you imagine....this?"

Burt Smith just seemed like your typical Sparty piece of shit (and yes, I know, he went to Michigan).


Bob Ufer, as expected, was awesome.


Also, '73 OSU QB Cornelius Greene seems like a class-act.


Interesting to hear Lantry's perspective on that game.  You can tell that 40 years later, that game still affects his life and is unfortunutely he knows that he's known as the guy who missed the kick at the end to win the game.

I would have been high up in the corner of the end zone.

I vaguely remember snow flurries that game but that could have just as easily been 75. I also remember most or even all of those game from 72 to 75 coming down to late field goals, either missed or made, and mostly not in M's favor.

I was 10 and thought Michigan was going to pull it out with a FG. The were the better team during the second half. Hard to believe it was so long ago!

and had to witness the criminal idiocy of Big Ten rules keeping our '70, '72, '73, and '74 teams home for the holidays, watching this program would be like sticking a rusty spike in my temple. No thanks.

I watched it after the game and really liked it. I had no idea so many ADs had UM ties. Makes it even more sad. I think it's hilarious that the B1G wouldn't let the attorney talk about it on camera, 40 years later. And, the individual ADs' recollections of how the vote went down is such a great example of how imperfect memory is!
