Did you watch the Michigan-Notre Dame game on TV growing up as a child? I did, because it was played pretty consistently from 1978 to now, and I grew up in the 90s. If you're older than me, you might not have. Especially if you are Mark May's age. But wait:
Something seems off about this statement. Let's let our trust friend "basic mathematics" help us out.
Mark May just said he watched Notre Dame-Michigan growing up. May was born in 1959. ND and UM did not play between 1943 and 1978.— Sandlapper Spike (@SandlapperSpike) September 3, 2013
So Mark May's childhood either lasted well into his 20s — when he was playing football at Pittsburgh and wouldn't be in upstate New York, which seems like a fairly trivial factual inaccuracy next to the fact that Mark May is claiming to have watched games that never happened — or he doesn't do any research before going on television in front of millions of people.
