To help fire up for the Zips here’s your sneak listen at TWIMFbH for Saturday. This time was step by 39 years to the 1974 season opener against Iowa.
Thanks to a nasty virus, senior star QB Dennis Franklin couldn’t play so Bo gave the ball to Bay City, Michigan legend Mark Elzinga (left, with coach Hanlon rocking the sabertooth maize coaches shirt).
Here’s a look at that game, after a brief look back at the conclusion of the 1973 season and a shout-out to my boys Crazy Legs and Spartan Bert..
MICHIGAN (4) * Don Canham (Michigan) * Bump Elliott (Iowa) * Bill Orwig (Indiana – former Michigan hoops and football player and assistant coach). * Paul Giel (Minnesota – said he voted for Michigan).
OHIO STATE (6) * Ed Weaver (Ohio) * Cecil Coleman (Illinois) * Tippy Dye (Northwestern) * George King (Purdue) * Elroy Hirsch (Wisconsin – played for Michigan via the V12 program from 1943-44) * Burt Smith (Michigan State – U-M graduate)
Thanks to Buddy for sending it over. I wonder what the Stunt3 guys are up to next?
