Glad you liked the series! It's been a lot of work putting all these together, but a lot of fun as well!

|10/26/2017 - 7:41pm||Here's what I have from the last time Ufer was in the stadium|
|10/23/2017 - 7:37am||Re-evaluation by coaches is always being done.||
One of Michigan's greatest defensive coordinators, Bill McCartney, told me that he re-evaluated everything on defense after Warren Moon picked apart his zone, bend-but-don't-break, defense in the 1978 Rose Bowl. That re-assessment started from the top and went all the way down to how players & positions were evaluated. That re-evaluation spawned the 1980 defense, the use of more blitzes and more offensively talented players moving to the defense. Marion Body QB & Tony Jackson WR are two that come to mind.
|10/16/2017 - 7:43pm||I thought the same thing on the Tuman TD||
So I checked the play again, because I too thought it was the PA Waggle. It was not. Probably why Tuman was so wide open in the end zone! LOL! Thanks man - glad you enjoyed the write up!
|09/10/2017 - 9:28pm||The Stripes Are Not (Historically) Supposed||
To go all the way down. That happened in 1982 en mass for the entire team. A couple of the helmets had that look in 1981, but the next year in '82 this was the new look. Kind of like whenever the auto companies change the look of one of their iconic cars - not cool & not necessary. Most recently Ford changed the grill on the Mustang to match what the rest of their cars had. Oh really? I bought a Mustang that has the same grill as a Taurus? Stupid! NOT a better idea, Ford!!

What you are laying down, Markus! Rest assured, Dr. Sap is already on it... ;)
|08/14/2017 - 7:22pm||Here's the video of the tackle||
Brutus, and the rest of the Buckeye fans, we're so f-Ing cocky & confident they would be victorious in 1983 that the Hairless Nut was taunting the north endzone crowd & waving his flag. To think that there would be no repercussions of being an asshat in your rival's stadium only speaks to the Neanderthal mentality of that mascot. He went down hard & good! There's a longer clip out there on YouTube from some Buckeye fan that shows Brutus getting up and continuing to taunt the crowd as he runs to the south endzone.
This year, like the song says, "It's going down for real!!!!"

Now if I can just figure out how to embed! Thanks Rob F!
|01/26/2017 - 12:23pm||The Video||
was an instructional film made by Bo and Jerry Hanlon that they actually sold to schools to help teach others the basics of fundamental Offensive Line Play. I will see if I can add a few more clips. Intended for schools at any level, I know of at least one Big Ten school that had a copy of the tape/film in their possession...The panelling? That's what the Head Coach's (Bo's) office used to look like. It's a 70's thing. Not as much panelling nowadays...

|10/27/2016 - 12:14pm||From John Kryk's article in HTTV 2015:||
""On Jan. 2, AP and UPI voters awarded 11-1 Oklahoma the national championship. Michigan finished No. 2 in both polls. One AP voter even put the Wolverines No. 1. In its next issue, based on some formula devised by Allen Barra and George Ignatin, Inside Sport magazine raised Michigan to No. 1 over Oklahoma in its final rankings, in part because the Wolverines’ “average opponent was a full touchdown a game tougher” than the Sooners’. Jeff Sagarin’s computer rankings in USA Today also placed Michigan and Oklahoma 1-2.
|10/26/2016 - 9:05pm||The #2 Ranking the 1985 Team ended up with was the highest||
for any Schembechler-coached Team. One news service even voted Michigan #1 at the end of year based on their strength of schedule.

Carhartt - the original Work Wear Company - has been around since 1889 and is and has always been headquartered right here in Michigan. If you are a fan of Michigan - the Leaders and Best - then Carhartt is the brand for you. The premier and premium brand that is built to last. GO BLUE, GO CARHARTT!!
|06/09/2016 - 9:31am||What was he thinking?||
Kryk never guessed I would go with Six DB's at the Goalline. He was sooo wrong! ;)
|06/09/2016 - 8:13am||Harbaugh INT||
Actually, I was Brian Carpenter and the 1980 Team while author John Kryk was Harbaugh and the 1985 Team. Yes, Kryk should have run the ball, but once again that 1980 Defense was underestimated by their competition. There was a reason Ufer called them McCartney's Monsters! Wrap your collective heads around this: the Michigan Defense was the #1 defensive unit for the ENTIRE DECADE OF THE 1970s for the following: Points Allowed Per Game (8.04), Yards Rushing Per Game (106.6) and Total Yards Per Game (226.3). THAT is amazing! I expound on Mac's Six-Penny Defense in this year's Hail To The Victors magazine if you want to know the rest of the story...

Enjoy this rarity!
|02/21/2016 - 10:15pm||Local Telecast||
A lot of the games in the late 70's & early 80's were aired on a tape-delay basis after the 11 o'clock news Saturday nights. They were edited to fit a 2 hour time slot. Brandy and Ray Lane did a lot of the games back then. If you listen closely in this 1981 UM-MSU Game, you can hear over the P.A. System: "Tackle made by Tom Gores." Yup - THAT Tom Gores!
|02/12/2016 - 9:11pm||My pleasure, man!||
Glad you enjoy them! There's a whole new generation of fans who have no idea about all this stuff that happened in the 70's and 80's...
|02/12/2016 - 9:07pm||AC told me||
He was 155 pounds when he played at Michigan! I don't think they list players that light on EA's NCAA Football title!
|02/12/2016 - 2:15pm||Anthony Carter||
Rated 3rd WR that year. WoW! Rated behind Tony Hunter (ND) and Mitchell Bennett (SMU)???

The video was taken from an old Michigan Replay segment from the early '80's.
