SAE dominated FIJI 30-12 in balmy conditions down on the corner of South University and Washtenaw on Saturday morning. When they announced the game was moved to November naturally I assumed it would be frigid and it turned out to be one of the nicest mornings for a Mud Bowl in memory.
The event once again benefitted Mott Children’s Hospital and no doubt raised quite a bit of money based on the crowd and the sponsors.
Thanks to Geoff Voss for providing these, more later.
Holding? Loosely enforced in the Mud Bowl
Glad they added a scoreboard. The most common question at previous Mud Bowls: “When do the girls play?” The second most common question, “What’s the score?”
Flop around in some frigid mud? No problemo. But, “Ewww, keep that damp dirty towel away!”

Ed. Steve Sapardanis aka “Dr. Sap” is back with his decals. This week I added the Editor’s Pick & added a bit to the Fan Award. Here are the picks from Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, Week 5, Week 6 and Week 7 and Week 8 and Week 9.
||ROY ROUNDTREE – I’m sure most of you had the same reaction I did with Roundtree’s performance on Saturday – IT’S ABOUT TIME!! We knew he had it in him, it was just a matter of WHEN he would have his breakout game. Not only was he targeted more times against Northwestern than he was all year, he drew THREE pass interference calls – I don’t even know if Desmond had as many in one game. Welcome back, Treezy!
||KENNY DEMENS – He didn’t play a perfect game but he did make the tackle of his life – TWICE! It’s a play and situation you dream of as a kid growing up playing Pop Warner Football. Demens not only made the big stop to win the game on 4th Down, but he also made the stop the play before on 3rd Down! OUTSTANDING!
||BRENDAN GIBBONS – We’ve called him, “Gibby” and “Lefty” but I think we should just call him “MONEY!” Eleven field goals in a row? That’s GOTTA be a Michigan record!
|DEVIN GARDNER – DG was doing whatever it took to win the game yesterday. He laid out for his first score and even after Coach Hoke reminded him that the 35th President of the United States was his backup, he still kept plays and drives alive with his feet – to say nothing of the throws he was making with his right arm!
||CHEERLEADERS – I guess I’ve been paying too much attention to the action on the field to realize that the U-M Cheerleaders have TWO sets of unis. The predominantly blue scheme caught my eye, but then I really liked the white outfits! I think it’s because the long white sleeves look very USC-ish, and I’m SOOOOO okay with that!
|UFER MAIZE & BLUE
|Maize & Blue Bib Overall Guys – The weather was unseasonably warm yesterday, so I can’t fault the guys below for their get-up.
I just have one question: where did they get the maize & blue striped bib overalls? I know the M-Den doesn’t sell them. Might have to ask the folks at Carhartt if they carry this style! [Ed. Come on Sap! Always go to Moe’s, MVictors #1 sponsor—they’ve got them]
[Ed. Runner up: YOU – all those in an attendance for the roar you gave The Ox when he was announced before the game. I got the chills.]
