For this edition of This Week in Michigan Football history we head back four and a half decades to the home finale of the 1968 season, Bump Elliottís final year at the helm of the Wolverines.
On November 16, 1968 the Big House was barely half full. Those who didnít bother to show certainly regret it as Michigan, Big Ten and heck, NCAA history was made by Bumpís badass back Mr. Ron Johnson.
347 yards on the ground. One man. Barely more than 3 quarters. Ponder that here in 2013. Today, Friday November 15, we are as far from that type of performance as weíve been since that day 45 years ago.
Johnson, along with Elliott and Old 98, graced the program cover (above) for this game and this was fitting. Johnsonís big day knocked out a couple of Harmonís records, and of course it was Bumpís final home game. (P.S. I want one of those vintage Ď68 coaches shirts).
You can catch all of the This Week in Michigan Football History clips hereÖ.sponsored in 2013 by Ziebart of Yspilanti. And donít forget to catch it live Saturday on the KeyBank Countdown to kick-off on WTKA 1050AM starting at 11:30AM Saturday.
