There Are 103 Days to Michigan Football

Waiting for the opening Saturday of college football is agonizing. All we want is 13 weeks of Brent Musberger "pardner" one-liners, the buzz of Michigan Stadium in late November, and jokes about the Bowl Championship Series. Fear not, bleary-eyed traveler. This is a continuing series intended to get through the long, hot summer and back to the glory of football season.

Team 103 has a distinct pleasure among their brethren. Not because of any one star player or classic game on the field. Though they did beat top-ranked Notre Dame the second week of the season. 1981 was play-by-play man Bob Ufer's last year at the mic for WPAG-AM, the tiny Ann Arbor-based station. It would seem insignificant to distinguish a radio announcer, but it's not if Ufer's poetic musings and hysterical homerism have been heard.
