Edition number 3 of #WPW gets emotional:
111261912277 Homecoming Ill stew
Maybe this is why Illini fans really hate us?  From 1948, a homecoming display on campus featuring the recipe for a little Illinois Stew.  Well done.  Bennie Oosterbaan’s #1 ranked Wolverines got a battle from the unranked Illini on October 30, 1948 but prevailed 28-20.
Yost Coach and Storm Damage

Above you’ve got Michigan head hoops coach Bill Perigo checking out the damage in Yost Field House from the storm that ripped through the athletic campus back in 1959.   The damage amounted to $100,000 according to the wire caption which, coincidentally, is exactly the revenue from Twizzler sales at the Wisconsin game on Friday night.  2412 

Below, from a 2010 post, a great shot above Yost from the same storm:




350976004725 - Strack not happy

That’s head hoops coach Dave Strack, who succeeded Perigo, a bit distraught on the sidelines.  Strack, the man who coached the great hoops teams of the mid-1960s, passed away in January at age 90
