Happy New Year!!! I LIVE for New years Day...back in the past it was for college football bowl games but I lost interest when they took this one day event and spread it out over weeks and added games seemingly whenever a new sponsor wanted one. THEN The NHL did something amazing! They took from the experiments in the past with outdoor exhibition games and the already first successful Canadian Heritage Classic in Edmonton, and started what would be called the Winter Classic. Today I look back at: 2008 - Ralph Wilson Stadium, Orchard Park, New York: Pittsburgh Penguins and Buffalo Sabres. 2009 - Wrigley Field, Chicago, Illinois: Chicago Black Hawks vs Detroit Red Wings 2011 - Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: Pittsburgh Penguins vs Washington Capitals 2012 - Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: Philadelphia Flyers vs New York Rangers 2014 - The Big House, Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor, Michigan: Detroit Red Wings vs Toronto Maple Leafs 2020 - Cotton Bowl, Dallas, Texas: Dallas Stars vs Predators Learn more about your ad choices.

Michigan football's Aidan Hutchinson misses out on Heisman TrophyThe momentum behind his candidacy stopped Saturday, when Hutchinson and the rest of the nation learned Alabama quarterback Bryce Young was the recipient of college football's greatest individual prize. The Michigan standout, meanwhile, finished a distant second in the final balloting. Still, the outcome couldn't dim a dazzling year for Hutchinson, who set a single-season school record with 14 sacks, led the Wolverines to their first College Football Playoff berth and began to stock his trophy case. Just in the last two weeks, Hutchinson was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year and won the Rotary Lombardi Award, given to the nation's best lineman or linebacker.After all, Hutchinson's trajectory was unclear heading into the Sept. 4 opener against Western Michigan. The potential was certainly there, and the NFL was intrigued enough by his natural ability that one prominent scouting service gave him a preliminary first-round grade. The second-generation Wolverine, whose father was an All-American, struggled to distinguish himself on the field for one reason or another. As his college career progressed, he was often overshadowed by the Wolverines' other top pass rushers, whether it was Chase Winovich, Josh Uche or Kwity Paye.Two weeks later, many began to agree with Gattis' opinion after watching Hutchinson terrorize Ohio State and lead Michigan to its first victory over the Buckeyes since 2011. The 6-foot-6, 265-pound dynamo generated a whopping 15 pressures and sacked C.J. Stroud three times in the 42-27 win.“There have been some awfully good players that have played for Michigan that haven't done what Aidan Hutchinson has done,” Harbaugh said.That was true. Hutchinson established a new single-season school record for sacks in the win over Ohio State. He then became Michigan's first Big Ten championship game MVP after the Wolverines secured their first conference title since 2004 in a 42-3 rout of Iowa last Saturday.How Michigan ended up building The Big House-Stuart Varney takes a closer look into how the University of Michigan built the largest football stadium on ‘American Built'.Michigan Stadium, nicknamed "The Big House,is the football stadium for the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It is the largest stadium in the United States and Western Hemisphere, outside of Asia, the third largest stadium in the world, and the 34th largest sports venue.Its official capacity is 107,601,but has hosted crowds in excess of 115,000.Michigan Stadium was built in 1927 at a cost of $950,000 (equivalent to $11.4 million in 2019 and had an original capacity of 72,000. Prior to the stadium's construction, the Wolverines played football at Ferry Field. Every home game since November 8, 1975 has drawn a crowd in excess of 100,000, an active streak of more than 300 contests. On September 7, 2013, the game between Michigan and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish attracted a crowd of 115,109, a record attendance for a college football game since 1948, and an NCAA single-game attendance record at the time, overtaking the previous record of 114,804 set two years previously for the same matchuphttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Mo3GiXBbMYPrior to playing at Michigan Stadium, Michigan played its games at Ferry Field, which at its peak could seat 40,000 people. Fielding Yost recognized the need for a larger stadium after original expansions to Ferry Field proved to be too small, and persuaded the regents to build a permanent stadium in 1926. Fashioned after the Yale Bowl, the original stadium was built with a capacity of 72,000. However, at Yost's urging, temporary bleachers were added at the top of the stadium, increasing capacity to 82,000.Formal dedication of the new Michigan Stadium, October 22, 1927, against Ohio StateOn October 1, 1927, Michigan played Ohio Wesleyan in the first game at Michigan Stadium, prevailing easily, 33–0. The new stadium was then formally dedicated three weeks later in a contest against Ohio State on October 22. Michigan had spoiled the formal dedication of Ohio Stadium in Columbus five years earlier and was victorious again, besting the Buckeyes 21–0 before a standing-room-only crowd of 84,401. In 1930, electronic scoreboards were installed, making the stadium the first in the United States to use them to keep the official game time.In 1956, the addition of a press box raised the stadium's official capacity to 101,001. The one "extra seat" in Michigan Stadium is said to be reserved for Fritz Crisler, athletic director at the time. Since then, all official Michigan Stadium capacity figures have ended in "-01", although the extra seat's location is not specifiedhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6V_sYJl3OsRANDOM FACT-PORTLAND CEMENThttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portland_cementPortland cement is the most common type of cement in general use around the world as a basic ingredient of concrete, mortar, stucco, and non-specialty grout. It was developed from other types of hydraulic lime in England in the early 19th century by Joseph Aspdin, and is usually made from limestone. It is a fine powder, produced by heating limestone and clay minerals in a kiln to form clinker, grinding the clinker, and adding 2 to 3 percent of gypsum. Several types of portland cement are available. The most common, called ordinary portland cement (OPC), is grey, but white portland cement is also available. Its name is derived from its resemblance to Portland stone which was quarried on the Isle of Portland in Dorset, England. It was named by Joseph Aspdin who obtained a patent for it in 1824. However, his son William Aspdin is regarded as the inventor of "modern" portland cement due to his developments in the 1840s.Portland cement is caustic, so it can cause chemical burns.The powder can cause irritation or, with severe exposure, lung cancer, and can contain a number of hazardous components, including crystalline silica and hexavalent chromium. Environmental concerns are the high energy consumption required to mine, manufacture, and transport the cement, and the related air pollution, including the release of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide, dioxin, NOx, SO2, and particulates. Production of Portland cement contributes about 10% of world carbon dioxide emissions. The International Energy Agency has estimated that cement production will increase by between 12 and 23% by 2050 to meet the needs of the world's growing population. There are several ongoing researches targeting a suitable replacement of portland cement by supplementary cementitious materials.The low cost and widespread availability of the limestone, shales, and other naturally-occurring materials used in portland cement make it one of the lowest-cost materials widely used over the last century. Concrete produced from Portland cement is one of the world's most versatile construction materials.

The Michigan–Ohio State football rivalry, referred to as The Game. The two Midwest state universities first met in 1897, and the rivalry had been played annually and uninterrupted from 1918 until 2020, when it was not held due to the coronavirus pandemic. The game has been played at the end of the regular season since 1935 (with the exceptions of 1942, 1986, 1998, and 2020). Since 1918, the game's site has alternated between Columbus, Ohio, and Ann Arbor, Michigan (Michigan hosts it in odd years and Ohio State in even years), and has been played in Ohio Stadium since 1922 and Michigan Stadium since 1927. Through 2010, Ohio State and Michigan have decided the Big Ten Conference championship between themselves on 22 different occasions, and have affected the determination of the conference title an additional 27 times.

After trailing by as many as 26 points, NIU had a potential program-record comeback denied in the last two minutes by the Wyoming Cowboys in a 50-43 loss. Thomas Hammock's team once again showed toughness and heart that won over fans at Huskie Stadium's first full-capacity game since before the COVID-19 pandemic. The toughness and heart of the Huskies will face it's hardest test yet this coming Saturday when NIU walks into Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor to face the 25th ranked Michigan Wolverines. Norther Star sports editor James Krause is joined by junior quarterback Rocky Lombardi and Michigan Daily senior sports editor Daniel Dash to preview NIU-Michigan, a game Hammock and company hopes will result in another "boneyard" victory.

The Maize Out provided an electric atmosphere at the Big House last weekend, helping the Michigan Wolverines blowout the Washington Huskies by a score of 31-10. The rush attack generated most of the offense on the night, while the defense locked in and shut down any possible threat posed by Washington's offense. Beating a team like Washington in front of that sort of crowd can go a long way in the realm of recruiting, and fortunately for Michigan, there were a ton of recruits at Michigan Stadium to witness it all on Saturday. On this week's Future Brew, Von and Stephen discuss some of the recruit's reactions and who the Wolverines may have taken a lead for.

The guys from Dawgman.com - Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Scott Eklund - found themselves on a call after Washington's 31-10 loss to Michigan Saturday night, trying to make sense of what they saw. And there wasn't much sense to it. Those UW fans hoping to see a much different team than the one that lost 13-7 to Montana were bound to be disappointed. The Huskies couldn't run the ball, and they couldn't stop the run. And that was really the tale of the tape. The Michigan Wolverines were bound and determine to stuff the ball down the Huskies' throat, and they did it in a resounding fashion. The offense was really poor for the second-straight week. There were no wrinkles in the run game to really speak of, putting the offense entirely on Dylan Morris's shoulders. Morris threw for nearly 300 yards and a score, but most of those numbers were piled up when the game was already out of reach. So the main question still remains; why? What has turned this offense, which wasn't incredible in 2020 but at least could score some points, into a total shambles? Where is the identity, the execution, the coaching? And is John Donovan the man that can deliver on Jimmy Lake's vision for a pro-style offense that starts with a power run game and includes an explosive passing element? Or is Lake's mandate simply beyond the reach of these players and coaches? And if that's the case, what does that say about Lake? Was there anything UW could hang their hat on? They didn't turn the ball over, so that was something. And they kept Michigan to 44 yards through the air, but that's because they only threw it 15 times. Grinolds, calling in from the sidelines at Michigan Stadium, offered up his take on the Michigan game day experience and how it compares to Pac-12 away days. Learn more about your ad choices.

On this edition of Buckeye ReTalkables, it's time to dive into the first Michigan game for head coach Earle Bruce, as the undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes go to Ann Arbor in 1979.Doug Lesmerises, Nathan Baird and Stephen Means watched the game and saw an OSU program in transition in the first season after Woody Hayes … and a program that nearly won a national title. The Buckeyes won this game in Michigan Stadium 18-15 thanks to defense and special teams, and a few big plays from sophomore quarterback Art Schlichter.Listen as the guys go through the ReTalkable categories, discussing the tackling and style of linebacker Al Washington, the father of current OSU linebackers coach Al Washington Jr.; the rising ability of freshman linebacker Marcus Marek; the speed and skill of Michigan receiver Anthony Carter; the several questionable coaching moves from Michigan's Bo Schembechler; and the win that would serve as the high point of the Bruce era as the Buckeyes stayed perfect and headed to the Rose Bowl, where they would lose a claim to a national title with a 17-16 loss to USC.But after losing three straight to Michigan to end the Hayes era, this was a huge win for Ohio State.

Previously: 1879, 1893, 1901, 1918, 1925, 1932, 1940, 1947, 1950, 1964, 1973, 1976, 1980, 1985 p.1& p.2, 1988, 1991, 1999, 2003, 2011 p.1 & p.2 [Writeup and player after THE JUMP] 1. Football in 1956 (starts at 1:00) F. Scott Fitzgerald was a super weird fan. Eisenhower vs. Stevenson. Platooning is out, T-formation passing and facemasks are in. Rose Bowl has a no-repeat rule. Ohio State is banned from the postseason. The Pac falls apart because every school is selling each other out. Everybody's playing each other. Racism: South is still segregated, North has an unofficial quota system so every team has one Black guy. At Michigan: Slippery Rock scores, a dog that makes a dashing goal line stand, and the Salk polio vaccine. 2. Fucking Kramer (starts at 31:34) courtesy Peg Canham-Keeley (left) Had a sweeter shooting stroke than Caleb Houstan. Created the modern tight end who's both offensive tackle and downfield receiving threat. “It was like having a license to play 12 guys” –Lombardi. At his funeral they asked the assembled “Who's ever been kissed on the mouth by Ron Kramer” and everyone raised their hand, including the media, and Don Canham's wife. Was to Michigan fans of his day as Denard is to modern fans. Never lifted a weight. “Big” scandal before 1956: his GPA is a 2.01 because Michigan just gives solid letter grades, but you need a C+ average, and Look Magazine reports Kramer shouldn't be eligible. 3. The Team Besides Kramer (starts at 00:00) The size of squads are just starting to balloon in this era, and Michigan is up to 60 players from 40 two years prior and 32 two years before that. Team was made of ends, I guess because they all wanted to play for Oosterbaan the way Juwan Howard has all the bigs. Tom Maentz is 6'3/210, Kramer is 6'3/216 and four guys they can play behind them. Jirm Orwing and Al Sigman are vets but they're hoping Willie Smith “who rocks the scales at 237” pushes Sigman. Agile and speedy guards in Dick Hill and Varv Nyren. Hill already a star. No depth--moved a guy from end. New center is Mike Rotunno who also switched from End. They get back Gene Snider who started in 1954 but was ineligible in 1955 and is a solid linebacker. Big backfield with Herrnsten (6'2) and Ptacek (6'1) coming up from freshman. Nobody's much of a passer they worry. Ptacek (“Tah-check”) is a “locomotive” type and their best passer. Pace is the better runner but not a great defender, gained 10 pounds in the offseason. 4. The Games, Part I (starts at 1:3259) 9/29: #7 Michigan 42, UCLA 13. UCLA finished #4 in the AP last year after losing a close Rose Bowl to MSU, but PCC sanctions came down and all of the 1955 starters were ineligible to play for half a season. Sanders staggered all of their suspensions. Stars were back Donnie Long, Guard Esker Harris, Center Jim Matheny, and back Bruce Ballard. They were a single-wing team as well but passed a lot, going 9/22. UCLA had four fumbles. Michigan just ran the ball for 234 yards. Went 4/9 passing including a 70-yard TD to Ron Kramer from Terry Barr. Kramer and Maddock each kicked three XPs. 10/6: #5 Michigan 0, #2 MSU 9. Duffy's 3rd season, coming off their 9-1 1955 “national championship year” when they only lost to Michigan and won a fantastic Rose Bowl that ended on a last-second field goal the kicker thought he missed and the ref had to convince him otherwise. Again game played in Ann Arbor--1953 was last time we went to EL but they had just added 9000 seats and were planning to add the 2nd decks in 1957. Coming off a 21-7 win over #12 Stanford, so this is a game of top 5s. Got over 100k in the stadium (101,001 is the listed and the capacity). State has Clarence Peaks, who went 7th overall in the draft. Michigan dominates statistically but can't punch it in, Herrnstein throws an awful INT setting up an MSU field goal. Herrnsten fumbled in the 4th Q and set State up at the 21, and they scored for the 9-0 score. Reel is on youtube. 10/13: #12 Michigan 48, #15 Army 14. Second year in a row playing at Michigan Stadium, shows how far Army's fallen? Big game that draws a national audience despite both teams falling to Tier #2 by now. 10/20: #8 Michigan 34, Northwestern 20. Ara Parseighian's first year, they used to yell “Rose Bowl!” if they got a first down. 10/27: #5 Michigan 7, Minnesota 20. WTF! Big upset on homecoming. Michigan scores quickly then Injuries: Lost Terry Barr (ankle) Kramer starts playing cornerback on defense for him. Pace, Orwig, and Hill went out. Time ran out at the end of the 1st half with Michigan on Minnesota's 4 yard line. Minnesota's “blitz offense” took over in the 4th Q after Michigan had a 7-0 lead at halftime and 7-6 lead at the end of the 3rd Q. Ran a hurry-up offense from the Wing-T and Michigan's “defensive timing was thrown off” by it. Two last-chance drives ended on downs to set up another Minnesota score, and the last drive ended on an INT in the endzone. Box score shows the yards and stats were close. #1 Michigan State was upset by 1-3 Illinois the same day, which meant Iowa and Ohio State were the only undefeated/untied B10 teams (Minnesota had a tie with NW) 11/3: #17 Michigan 17, at #7 Iowa 14. Check out the route to get there: Remember this the next time you're crying bored on I-94. Forest Evashevski's Iowa--only game they lost all year, second year in a row M was the only loss of the Rose Bowl winner, and 4th close game in a row he lost to his alma mater. No wonder the guy went nuts. Mike Shatusky, 3rd string RHB scored two second-half TDs to bring M back from down 14-3. Last one was at 1:06 in the game. Best UM played all year, coming up in big moments. 5. The Games, Part II (starts at 2:14:37) 11/10: #10 Michgian, Illinois 7. Wing-T team with a great backfield and one great guard. Revenge for the loss in 1955. This was a weird year for Illinois--two ties and lots of very close games, beat #1 MSU and Cal in a 2-5-2 season. Star cornerback/halfback Abe Woodson (who became one of the best kick returners of the 1960s in the NFL) had three second-half TDs and also set hurdles records. RB Dale Smith was good too, and UM was focused on stopping Bobby Mitchell and Larry Jefferson who'd torched them in ‘55. Smith scored on a left pitchout on their first drive--just a great individual play--but Michigan tightened up and ran all over them (328 yards, 120 from Pace). Took control on a Statue of Liberty play on 4th and 4 at the Illinois 12. Crowd cheered when Iowa beat Minnesota, which kept Michigan in the Big Ten title race (needing help from OSU to beat Iowa). Also we hate Minnesota. Would have been extremely unfair for M to go to the Rose Bowl--it was based on wins and Michigan had a 7th Big Ten game. 11/17: #10 Michigan 49, Indiana 26. Offense took over, but only 58,515 showed up (still a record for attendance, 566,093, breaking the 1949 record by 3k.) Kramer made one of his “miracle catches” and was all over the place, including a Woodsonesque interception and two more bat-downs in keeping IU's QB Steve Filipowski to one reception. Nobody mentioned the Heisman. Bittersweet win because Ohio State lost to Iowa, which gave Iowa the Big Ten championship. Michigan, with a win over Iowa and an extra Big Ten game, would have been able to go with a victory over Ohio State next week. 11/24: Michigan 19, at #12 Ohio State 0 Rivalry becoming #1 for Michigan? Blanking OSU isn't even above the fold in the Daily!!!! But 10k rooters went. Clearly the #1 for OSU: “For the almost fanatical Ohio crowd, the defeat meant “a poor season.” In Ohio, the Michigan-Ohio game often means the success or failure of a whole year. Also the Buckeyes “only” won six games this year. Woody Hayes in Year 6. OSU was playing for a 3rd straight Big Ten conf title. SCANDAL: OSU gets a slap on the wrist: Big Ten investigated Woody's loans to players, Woody refused to provide any accounting of his loans. Investigation also found “serious irregularity” in their off-campus work program. Probation for one year and ineligible for the Rose Bowl, which they weren't eligible for anyway. Tragically talented: Woody has a great line and backfield (11 guys drafted). One of those players is Jim Parker, the best G in the country. Outland winner. Went 8th overall and tackle Bill Michael went 16th overall. Woody is so confident he won the toss and chose the wind (that's not deferring--M got both kickoffs). Fumble luck favors Michigan: OSU lost all 4 of theirs, Michigan recovered all three of theirs. But Michigan's defense knew Woody was going to keep it to the ground and tightened up against the run, playing Kramer like a Viper. Kramer is outstanding in his final game. Literally flying through the air on some of his tackles. Delicious Woody tears: On Ohio State fans. Wrap: Heisman vote this year was LUDICROUS. Everyone but Tennessee fans and the worst Domers agrees who should have won. -------------------------------------------- MUSIC: "Green Door”—Jim Lowe "Why Do Fools Fall in Love”—Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers “I'm in Love Again”—Fats Domino “Long Tall Sally”—Little Richard “Across 110th Street”

Matt Charboneau and Tony Paul talk about Michigan State's 27-24 upset victory over Michigan at Michigan Stadium on Saturday in this week's special edition of the Green Room podcast, weekend recap edition.
Maybe not quite the same week 1 feeling, but on Saturday night the Wolverines will battle for the Little Brown Jug (knock on wood) and hopefully for three hours we can turn our attention to a simple game. On this episode, 16 Saturdays returns to preview the 2020 season. We debate whether the Joe Milton hype is real, decide how afraid we should be of the cornerbacks (pretty afraid), and prepare for Dax Hill's liftoff. We also suggest giving Chase Winovich permanent mic privileges at Michigan Stadium, preview the Minnesota game, and complain about oddsmakers who have us losing four games.

In addition to being more ethical, knowledgeable, hands-on, intelligent, and fun to work with, Matt's cool. Previously: 1879, 1901, 1918, 1925, 1932, 1947, 1950, 1964, 1973, 1976, 1980, 1985 p.1&p.2, 1988, 1991, 1999 Special Guest: Greg Dooley from MVictors [Writeup and player after THE JUMP] 1. Setup (starts at 1:00) Coming off the 1930s when the Yost Era peters out with a 1934 season with one win and another terrible 1936, with Michigan losing to all of the rivals in the late-'30s. Kipke's program is cheating AND losing, he gets removed, and Michigan goes with the John Beilein option, Fritz Crisler, in 1938, which is a major departure from Yost's SEC-ish era. What do you do with Kipke's recruits, including Harmon, who have these illicit promises? Chicago is gone: who's the new 10th? Nebraska wants in: played 3 Big Nine teams, losing by 1 score to Minnesota and beating IU and Iowa, also played in the Rose Bowl. Top rival is Minnesota. In 1939 Harmon finishes 2nd behind Nile Kinnick in the Heisman. 2. The Team (starts at 43:48) BACKFIELD RHB "Wee" David Nelson, future HoF coach who created the Wing-T offense, wrote the NCAA rulebook, and is the reason the Delaware Blue Hens look like washed out Michigan. FB “Bullet” Bob Westfall: AA, 5th overall in the 1942 draft. Grew up poor in the shadow of Michigan Stadium. Worst case of asthma they’d ever encountered; once crawled home after he couldn’t get into the health center, and PLAYED the next day. Started every game 1939-’41. His career 1864 yards was the fullback rushing record until Bo. Listed size is a lie: he was 5’6/180. “Chunky Fullback” --WIsconsin State Journal. After the war he was finishing his degree but the Lions wanted to sign him, and his plan was to do both, but everyone fainted at the idea. QB Forest “Evy” Evashevski: Played against Michigan for the Iowa Pre-Flight team in 1942. Was just 16 when he arrived after skipping 2 grades, wasn’t allowed to play in high school until he led the intramural team to an upset over the varsity team. Played LB on defense. Went on to be Iowa’s HC, and AD, caught cheating and was replaced by Bump Elliott. Evy came very close to getting the Michigan job after Bump. HB Tom Harmon: If you don't know. HB Paul Kromer: He and Harmon are the “Touchdown Twins” after combining for 9 of the 20 Michigan scored in 1938. Indeed in 1939 they combined for 17 TDs, though Harmon scored 14 of those. Injured all year, tried to play vs MSU but that didn’t work. Returned for OSU. LINE Guard Milo Sukup. Injured by Harvard, listens to the Minnesota game on the radio. Guard Ralph Fritz. Could move really well for a guard, also really small and boxy. Center Bob Ingalls. Good snapper but better on defense. End Ed Frutig: Favorite receiver. Best punt blocker in Michigan history: had eleven career, five in 1940. LT Albert “Ox” Wistert. Youngest brother, 2nd to play for Michigan. Number is retired by the Eagles. This one was a great offensive tackle. Tall and fast for a lineman. 3. The Nonconference Harmon Show (starts at 1:01:53) 41-0 @ CAL. What, no warmups? Weren’t alone: Illinois played USC, Minnesota went out to Washington, who’d finish #10. Indiana got a visit from Texas. The Harmon Show on his 21st birthday. Returns the opening kickoff 94 yards. Returns a punt in the 2nd quarter 72 yards, Cal newspaper claims he ran another 100 going back and forth across the field. Then he had an 85-yard run and a Cal fan tried to tackle him on the goal line; he too failed. Scored 4 TDs, kicked all the PATs, threw a TD pass to Nelson. Held Cal to 8 rushing yards, and let them past midfield only once Harmon sat for Cliff Wise. Also this happened: MICHIGAN STATE COLLEGE. Attendance: 69,951: this is 2x any other home game. Harmon scores all three TDs, outgains MSU 312 to 49 in rushing. MSU was a passing team but you can’t throw on Michigan. They man you up. Stop me if you’ve heard this before: MSU gets a new coach during Michigan’s down year, 1934, and finally beats UM. This gets their coach a long-term contract and 8 years later his team’s a bunch of flailing tryhards who are obsessed with beating Michigan and don’t show out for any other game. @HARVARD 26-0. Series: Michigan made three trips during the period that Seth & Craig Ross write about, and Yost went out there in 1914 during Michigan’s time in the wilderness. Then they scheduled home and home 1929 and 1930 that Michgian won. Now they agreed to another: Michigan goes out there first, with the return game in 1942. Harmon: 3 TDs and passed for a fourth, missed an XP. Outgained them 2014 to 61. M’s subs were out after 2 minutes in the 3rd Q. 4. The Conference Harmon Show (starts at 1:23:27) ILLINOIS 28-0. Avenging the upset in 1939. Harmon runs one and passes one to Frutig. Michigan outgained them 240 yards to 24. PENN 14-0: JUDGMENT DAY. George Munger’s Penn team is ranked #8 and undefeated. One of the first games to be nationally broadcast over radio. Harmon: 28 carries for 142 yards, 8/12 for 51 yards and a TD, also punted. Scored on a 19-yard outside run when he got the edge. Eastern football was old fashioned: if you were beating them up they would beat you up. After quite a bit of this Harmon’s shirt was already ripped half off his back. Finally Penn takes it out on Harmon’s teammates. Evy goes out and gets replaced by George Ceithaml. Milo Sukup with a vicious headshot late in the game. He’s hospitalized and his career is over. 5. The Three Contenders (starts at 1:33:29) Without Sukup. Starting Kolesar in his place. Halfback George Franck was the fastest player in the Big Ten, Tackle Urban Odson was also a consensus 1st team All-American, and guard Helge Pukema (hell-geh POKE-ehma). Junior halfback Bruce Smith had emerged as a breakout star while Franck redshirted in 1939. With sophomore Bill Daley prepped to break out as well, Minnesota had three outstanding runners, the former two of which would go on to make the College Football Hall of Fame. So would tackle Dick Wildung, another one of those important sophomores. Minnesota didn’t pass. Gophers soaked the field to slow down Harmon. He could still pass: 9/14 for a TD to Evashevski. Minnesota’s one score is an 80-yarder when two guys fall down in the mud getting to him. Harmon slipped on a 4th down on the Minnesota 1 that would have put them up 7-0. Later he missed the XP on the Evy TD. Another missed chance when Frutig blocked a punt. December 6 Milwaukee Sentinel: "It makes me sick to think of the chances we blew that day. We should have beaten them by four or five touchdowns. They're a good club, but we're better, and so is Northwestern." Michigan: 15 first downs to Minn’s 6, one of which a bogus penalty. Minnesota goes 0/3 passing. 20-13 NORTHWESTERN: Coach: Pappy Waldorf. #3 team in the Big Ten, finished #8 AP with a 1-point loss to Minnesota. Michigan had gone 0-3-1 the last four years against these guys. Frutig blocks a punt out of bonds inside the NWern 1, Harmon converts, 7-0. Next drive NW has to punt from their endzone again, Harold Lockard caught it on the 30 returned it 25 yards to the 5. Westfall TD, 14-0 MIchigan in 1st Q. 1st play of the 2nd Q DeCorrevont throws a 49-yard pass but they muff the XP. GAME ON. But Cats muff another punt, wind takes it OOB (Fitzgerald.gif) at the NW 26. Westfall scores, Harmon misses the PAT. 20-6 Michigan. NW scores a TD near the end of the game to make it a 1-score game but Michigan drives out the remaining clock. Tackle Alf Bauman was 1st team AA, Guard Joe Lokane and center Paul Hiemenz were consensus 1st team all-Big Ten. 40-0 @ OHIO STATE: Nov 23. Four guys on this team were drafted: 1st team All-Big Ten QB in Don Scott, also HB Jim Langhurst, center Claude White, and HB Jimmy Strausbaugh. OSU won four games from 1934 to 1937 but Michigan won the last two. OSU bulletin board material: Evy lit up a victory cigar with 30 seconds to play vs OSU in 1939. Teams traded possessions then Harmon had a long TD run. Paul Kromer returned from injury and returned a punt 80 yards. Harmon ran for three more TDs, threw two TDs (Evy and Frutig) kicked four PATs and averaged 50 yards on his three punts. Standing ovation for Harmon. 447 yards of offense to 125 for Ohio State (65 of which were on their last drive against the scrubs). Aftermath: Ohio State appointed a special committee to “Investigate the football situation” which recommended they fire the HC. They would hire Paul Brown. -------------------------------------------- MUSIC: "Vigilante Man"—Woody Guthrie "With Plenty of Money and You"—The Ink Spots "Sing, Sing, Sing"—Benny Goodman "Little Brown Jug"—Glenn Miller Orchestra “Across 110th Street” THE USUAL LINKS Helpful iTunes subscribe link General podcast feed link Download link.

We take an in-depth look at the issues surrounding the upcoming college football season after two of the game's major conferences - the Pac-12 and Big Ten - announced they won’t play this Autumn due to concerns around the Covid-19 pandemic. Super Bowl winner and former University of Notre Dame player Rocky Boiman believes the season should go ahead, telling us “If anybody is looking for a 100% safe environment in this world, anywhere, you’re not going to get it. It does not exist”. He also believes a lack of football could cost some players a shot at the NFL draft and adds he’s now resigned to all college football being cancelled in the coming weeks. Hunter Reynolds plays for the University of Michigan and is part of the #BigTenUnited movement. He won’t be playing following the postponement of the Big Ten. He tells us some players he’s spoken to are worried their coaches may be prepared to risk putting winning above safety. Broadcaster Mike Carlson also joins us and he believes the stand-off around the college football season could become an issue in the US Presidential campaign. “It’s an elite, unique, group to be in” - Marcel Eckardt joins us ahead of taking charge of the World Snooker Championship final. At thirty years of age, Eckardt will be the youngest person ever to referee the most prestigious match in the sport. He’s also the first German to do it. He tells us what the occasion means to him, how he got into the sport, his love of Pool and why he turned down the chance to have his family at The Crucible Theatre for his big moment. Broadcaster Rikki Swannell joins us with the latest from New Zealand after the final round of the regular season in Netball’s ANZ Premiership was cancelled due to concerns around Covid-19. All of this week’s games have been declared a draw. Swannell tells us how likely it is that next weekend’s finals series will be played. This week’s Sporting Witness takes us back to the Beijing Olympics of 2008, when weightlifter Matthias Steiner created one of the most emotional moments of the games. His wife was killed in a car accident shortly before the games began and he dedicated his gold medal to her.

The Wolverines might give the Buckeyes similar issues, and nothing would please Harbaugh and UM seniors more than snapping losing streak to archrival OSU. Buckeyes are 14-1 SU in the series, but Michigan has covered 4 of L6 of those, and hot UM QB Patterson capable of keeping this one exciting. (analysis provided by The Gold Sheet)

You probably don’t remember the Al Franken (edit out the politics, I’m making a joke here) character Stuart Smalley from “Saturday Night Live.” The character was a self-help softie whose famous line was “I’m good enough, I’m smart enough and, doggone it, people like me!” That’s Iowa this week. The Hawkeyes are good enough, talented enough, veteran enough and, doggone it, who wouldn’t want to see the championship portion of Jim Harbaugh’s season end on the first week of October at the hands of a second Big Ten West old school program? Leave the Michigan out of it and just make it Harbaugh. Everyone college football is nodding. Fact of the matter is Michigan is trying to find its footing with a new offense. So far, give Harbaugh credit for not taking the keys away from new offensive coordinator Josh Gattis, but this is Michigan and if the first quarter is anything like the Wisconsin game, Michigan Stadium is going to come crashing down on Jim Harbaugh’s head. Of course, Iowa has to make that happen. Iowa playing at Michigan in football is like Iowa playing at Indiana in basketball. It’s never going to be easy. Iowa is never going to be expected to win. This is Iowa and Kirk Ferentz’s chance to punch that in the face. And they should. We take your Twitter questions. We talk a little about the Cy-Hawk series (it needs a break before something dangerous happens). We do picks against the spread from elitesportsbook.com. I love picking against the spread. It doesn’t love me, but it’s fun and a challenge. This week, I went with the big favorites; Scott went against the spread. One of us will be right. Ohio State and Michigan State is a line in the sand here. I did flip flop with Northwestern and Nebraska. The picks part is our chance to talk about the Big Ten. I enjoy that part. Hope you do, too. Thanks for listening! Enjoy Ann Arbor.

Michigan historian Dr. Sap and I have started a new podcast on the lore of Michigan football. For this one we invited in author and 3,000-year-old Druid Craig Ross, who wrote about this team in HTTV 2015. We also did a segment with Bennie Oosterbaan's godson, Bennie McCready. Previously: 1980, 1999, 1901, 1964, 1976 THE SPONSOR: It is sponsored by HomeSure Lending. If you're buying or refinancing your home, this is the guy to talk to. He'll work on your loan directly and walk you through a process that can get really confusing really fast. I used him. Brian used him. Everyone else who used him is glad they did. -------------------------------------------- 1. BENNY, BENNIE AND BENNIE (starts at 1:00) We introduce this team by talking to Bennie McCready, whose mom grew up next door to the Oosterbaans and grew up immersed in the lore of the team Fielding Yost called his best. 2. FOOTBALL IN THE 1920s (starts at 16:42) Meet single-wing football, when players played both ways, when the rivals were Minnesota and Chicago, when Michigan's 47,000-seat stadium wasn't half of what they could fill, what with boom town Detroit churning out cars and the middle class fans who could drive them to a game. Meanwhile most of the country was lucky to draw 10,000. The history of forward passes, and the rules and ball shape that governed it. Yost's fallout with Notre Dame legend Knute Rockne over a 1923 track meet, and Yost's incredible building projects: recently completed Yost Field House, and his new dream, Michigan Stadium. We also get into Fielding Yost's first retirement in 1924, what happened with George Little and Benny Friedman, and why Yost came back with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind. 3. THE TEAM (starts at 55:19) Single-Wing football, playing both ways (click for big): Michigan's a spread team (after one year under a Brady Hoke offense) that's running what we call "Bash" today which Yost invented back in 1909 and called "Old 83". We'll get to Benny and Bennie last because there are some more dudes to get to. Center/MLB Bob Brown was thick-built and tough as hell. RG/Nose Tom Edwards was their "big" lineman at 5'11"/180 but was a stalwart in the middle of the line. RT/SDE Harry Hawkins is probably the next-best player after the Bens, the guy at the point of attack on most plays. Great backfield that's very scat-backlike. FB/SAM Bo Molenda is a natural runner. TB/CB Louis Gilbert is the running back-ish scatback, WB/CB Bruce Gregory the H-receiver-ish scatback. TE/WDE William Flora was a great blocker and really big for his era. And then you have Oosterbaan, a freak athlete who wouldn't be out of place on any team today. And a lot of Friedman, the game's first passing quarterback, and a good pick for greatest football player in the history of the game. He was the Babe Ruth of football, except instead of home runs he was transforming offense (and was a vastly underrated defensive player early in his career). Look at his motion: …now think about how guys back then often threw the ball end over end. 4. THE GAMES (starts at 1:29:02) Start with a MAC cupcake. Really realize they're good against Indiana, who thought they were going to have a great season. Wisconsin versus former HC George Little is billed as the best game in the country that year: Benny scores on the second play from scrimmage, Wisconsin decides to kick off (you can still do this) and Friedman returns that for a TD. Friedman's kickoff return [UM Bentley Library] Illinois game is payback against #77, Red Grange, and Michigan shuts him down, thanks Old 83, Benny Friedman's defense, and Michigan going to a "Diamond" defense that uses Benny as a box safety still responsible for deep balls (we forgot to mention this but this defense ultimately inspired the 46 Bear defense). Benny vs Illinois [Bentley] Defenestration of Navy proves the East's football isn't actually that good—Michigan's players are just faster. And then there's the BS: Northwestern should cancel for weather but instead takes the opportunity to play in five-foot-deep mud and cold and wind because it's the only way they ever beat Michigan. The 3 points Northwestern got from a turnover on M's three are the only scores on Michigan all year, and Michigan's 2 points from Northwestern's safety got the rule changed because back then if you took a safety you got the ball on your own 30 with a fresh set of downs, and run out the clock. Two rules (safeties and weather cancellations) are changed because of it. Ohio State is a stiffer test of football, shutting down the passing game but still losing 10-0. Big Minnesota rivalry game proves we need a Big House as half of the people who showed up were turned away. 5. WRAP (starts at 2:23:23) Yost gives out Big Ten Champions charms and Northwestern's captain writes to Michigan to disavow any claim to a tie to the championship. Northwestern fans riot, burn down a fraternity house, cut the firemen's firehoses, beat up the cops, then try to burn down their stadium. Benny Friedman goes on to prove the NFL is better than college (this was under debate) but has a sad later life. The Washington-Alabama Rose Bowl that puts Southern football on the map. Yost's legacy, and a little discussion on whether he was racist. The 1925 team in front of Ferry Field [UM Bentley Library] -------------------------------------------- MUSIC "Yes, Sir!

On today’s episode, we check in with soccer journalist and The Outer Drive podcast co-host Fletcher Sharpe, who covers Detroit City FC. With five games remaining in the NPSL regular season, Le Rouge are now unbeaten in seven games and have held opponents scoreless in each of those matches. But City has also notched scoreless draws during that stretch with their top divisional rivals in the NPSL Great Lakes Conference — AFC Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids FC. Le Rouge will have rematches with both teams during their final five games, and as Sharpe says, not all three teams are likely to make the NPSL playoffs. What else do we cover on the show, you ask? Federal officials are reviewing the Motor City Match program, which is meant to encourage small business entrepreneurship in the city, over its record-keeping and spending. [Detroit News] Jer talks to us about Ford’s new information and community center as part of Michigan Center, the company’s new name for its big investment in Corktown. Buddy’s Pizza is giving out $7.30 discounts in celebration of its 73rd year in business. And in more soccer news, soccer superstar Lionel Messi and FC Barcelona will highlight a friendly match Aug. 10 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor.

In a league uniquely rich in comic misadventures and financial disasters, perhaps no one franchise from the World Football League’s inaugural 1974 season stood out more for its own brand of woeful ineptitude than the Detroit Wheels. Saddled from inception by an unwieldy ownership group of 33 different founding investors – including Motown Records superstar Marvin Gaye and
