‘They Came To Bury Michigan…’ [Video]
'...all dressed in maize and blue. The words were said, the prayers were read and everybody cried.'
'but when they closed the coffin, there was someone else inside.'
True Blue Michigan fans will remember that poem, read by the emotional radio announcer, the late Bob Ufer, on November 22, 1969, after Michigan stunned the college football world by stunning the top ranked Buckeyes in Michigan Stadium, long before it was called 'The Big House'.
Once again, the Buckeyes are riding a long winning streak.
Once again, the Wolverines are heavy underdogs.
Will it happen like it did 50 years ago?
We'll find out Saturday, my friends.
