Bob Ufer called Michigan football games from 1945-1981. He was an unabashed homer openly rooting for “Meechigan” every cotton pickin’ Saturday afternoon. Anthony Carter arrived in 1979. He was a transformational player, a threat to score every time he touched the football. 1979 was also the 100th season of Michigan football as the Maize n Blue faced Indiana on homecoming weekend. The Hoosiers were poised to spoil the party tying the game with under one minute left. Michigan would advance to the Indiana 45 yard line with time for one final play. What happened next would be the signature call of Ufer’s career as Carter caught a pass over the middle and scampered into the end zone leaving the Hoosiers stunned as Ufer “went out of his mind” rambling for almost two minutes about “Anthony Carter, the human torpedo” and “a gift from football’s Valhalla.”
This ridiculously comfortable tee is a 50% polyester/25% cotton/25% rayon tri-blend.
It is truly a moment that will live for another 100 years of Michigan football even though our tees may not last quite that long.
