08/11/2018 - 8:14pm There was a cover picture on…

There was a cover picture on a 1969 Michigan home program featuring Bo, Bump, Benny, Fritz and Kipke.  I have now collected the autographs of each, but I need to have them framed. That will be cool, but there are lots of great posts.

05/23/2018 - 4:39pm Sonic commercials

The 2 idiots sitting in the car at the Sonic restaurant, especially the one on the left.  If there was a Sonic located near me, I'd boycott it.  As it is, I immediately switch channels at the beginning of each commercial.

Justify over Audible, or Audible over Justify

04/29/2018 - 10:57pm 5 Rose Bowls

1969 -  USC 10-3

1972 -  Stanford 13-12

1978 -  Washington 27-20

1984 -  UCLA 24-14

1998 -  Michigan 21-16

 

Best game, after 4 hearbreaks, 1998 of course.  

I would love to go again.  Can't wait.

 

03/30/2018 - 4:07pm U of M vs. Loyola

About a dozen years ago, one of my sons applied to U of M.  He was a 3.9 student at a well regarded Michigan public high school with a good ACT.  He waited 4 months to get in and only after he agreed to take an extra academic class in his last semester.  While his application was being considered, one of his best friends decided to apply to Loyola.  They both applied, on-line, during lunch one day. There were no essays required by Loyola.  My son was accepted in 10 days and for more than a month he received calls from Loyola admissions offering him scholarships to attend.  Loyola may be a fine school, but it is nowhere near the academic institution that Michigan (and many other Big 10 schools) are. 

12/11/2017 - 7:50pm Peters will win the job

I think that Patterson will be a nice addition, but won't beat out Peters.  And McCaffery won't be far behind.  Coach will never be caught without qualified, ready back-ups again.

 

10/07/2017 - 12:01pm 50th Consecutive UM/MSU game

Leaving E. Lansing soon to go to Ann Arbor to attend my 50th consecutive UM/MSU game.  Another Wolverine victory on the way!!!

08/29/2017 - 10:06pm I will miss a great teammate, friend, man

Steve epitomized being a Michigan Man, in the field events, on campus and in life.

08/23/2017 - 10:06pm More than a thousand laps

I have run on the track at Ferry Field.  More importantly, Jesse Owens and scores of other legends ran on the track.  And the legacy of Michigan football was born there.  I cannot thank AD Manual  enough for considering those facts.  I look forward to us finding a suitable use to save those memories in the future.

04/29/2017 - 1:53pm Jake is a long-term project

Jake may be ready to practice by mid-season, but it is overly-optimistic if he would be contribute as a pro in 2017.  Somebody will take him if they can wait a year to produce.  The Lions obviously need someone who can contribute from day one.

03/28/2017 - 6:32pm Jordan is here

My son is a friend.  Jordan has been working for 2 weeks.

02/21/2017 - 2:22pm Live in EL

There is too much drinking at an MSU game in the daytime.  It would be worse at night, and then we would have to drive home with drunken Spartans behind the wheels of 100s of cars.  Yikes!

01/18/2017 - 12:15pm Coach Burton was a good man and coach

I knew Tirrel when we alumni could help recruit and he was assigned to the schools in my home area.  He was not only a good coach, but a fine man and cared about even the recruits who weren't quite good enough to earn a scholarship.  He was a Michigan Man in all the right ways.  RIP, Tirrel.

01/12/2017 - 7:46pm A Better Place for Tyrone

First, I am very glad to have Tyrone back.  He is a great asset to our program.

Second, he will go soon and when he soes it will be better than WMU.

12/31/2016 - 6:02pm Buy-in

The complete buy-in of the players to Harbaugh's vision for returning us to the top.

11/27/2016 - 8:01pm 1973 OSU, USC Rose Bowl 1977

Harry Banks did cross the goal line on third down against OSU in 1973,  The officials ruled that he didn't score and Michigan lost 14-11.

Charles White fumbled the ball at the 2, the ball never crossed the goal line, Michigan recovered, and the officials ruled that White scored a touchdown.  USC won 14-6.

Saturday's officiating was worse.

 

 

 

11/22/2016 - 9:24am Jerry Zuver

I was at the 1976 game in Columbus and Jerry Zuver, not Mike Jolley, was the holder on PATs. After the second Michigan touchdown, Zuver took the snap and ran around the end to make it 15-0.  Later we added another touchdown to make it 22-0.  Zuver also had an interception in the game, his 6th of the year.

10/26/2016 - 3:34pm Tyler O'Connor

The rumor here in EL is O'Connor based on experience against OSU last year and Luwertka's happy feet versus the rush.

09/26/2016 - 10:46pm Spartan Stadium

I have been at 48 straight UM-MSU games

 

Michigan will have about 15,000 fans out of 75,000.

 

 

06/10/2016 - 9:41pm Like Camden Yards, how about

Like Camden Yards, how about "Gordie Howe Arena at Little Caesar's Place or Plaza

05/14/2016 - 10:56pm Second date, to Ann Arbor

We met in Ann Arbor.  Our second date we went to the Cottage Inn in Ann Arbor, and walked around campus.  We both went to U of M, and all 3 of our sons have too.

04/28/2016 - 7:49pm It is hard to decide, but

I have a photograph of 5 Michigan coaches (Bo, Bump, Benny, Fritz and Kipke) with all of their autographs.

 

I also have the 1927 program from the first game at Michigan Stadium.

 

03/20/2016 - 1:30pm 2003 Semi-Finals OT loss to Minnesota

Came back to score goal with a few minutes to go to take the lead 4-3.  After a long delay the refs say that they lost sight of the puck and the whistled the play dead.  Marlarkey!  Gophers score in OT and win the title that should have been ours.

03/05/2016 - 10:14pm It looked like we played

It looked like we played several managers this evening.

03/05/2016 - 10:10pm Defense

Injuries I understand, but the failure to teach these players defense is not defensible.  I think a look at the staff is in justified.

 

02/20/2016 - 12:05am Attended the 40th anniversary celebration of Owen's 4-record

day at FerryField.  Canham made it a big deal  and Owens was truly honored. ONe of my great memories of Michigan.  As a high schooler who ran in the State Championships and a letterman on the track team, I will always remember that track no matter how much concrete they poor over it.  When I first saw it, the old football stands on the south side were still standing, though they were crumbling.  

01/19/2016 - 8:46am Hallmark movies

My wife makes me watch them, and some are not bad even though the plots are all the same.  I do like Guardians of the Galaxy,too.

01/14/2016 - 8:31pm Was talking this past weekend about how much I missed the P-Bell

The last time I was there, Jim Brandstatter was signing "I left my heart in San Francisco", and he was pretty good, too.

12/25/2015 - 10:21pm Replica of the Little Brown

Replica of the Little Brown Jug, t-shirt "Keep Calm and Wear Khakis", U-M half-zip fleece, Bartelstein's "We On" book, "Michigan Law: An Informal History at 150". 2 tickets to U of M-OSU hockey game on 1/17/16.  Santa and my family were very, very good to me.

12/17/2015 - 6:13pm MSU fans say it was deliberate

I live in East Lansing.   The State fans say that SI deliberately did this and that it is yet another sign of disrespect for MSU.  If it rains for one of their games and hinders their passing, State fans claim that Mother Nature disrespects them.  Yikes!

11/29/2015 - 12:16pm Harbaugh's 1st year

Even considering yesterday, this year was a substantial upgrade from pre-Harbaugh.  The hardest thing to change is attitude and Coach has done that.  The only things to do now are recruit better and get back to work. And, not to long in the future we will have the Paul Bunyan back and the buckeyes wondering what hit them.

11/21/2015 - 10:32pm Not the 1st time Urban has choked

Meyer's strengths are recruiting and preparation--not coaching on the sidelines.  MSU deserves credit, but there is no way OSU should have lost that one.

09/03/2015 - 6:08pm 1960 vs NW

My first game was in 1960 against Northwestern coached by Ara.  There was a downpour the entire game.  UM won 14-7.  I've been hooked on UM football ever since.
