World Premiere: Football’s Valhalla, The Bob Ufer Story

Plays Friday, October 5, 2018 at 7:00 PM.

For many Michigan Football fans, nothing can describe the force of nature that was Bob Ufer. Considered the original “Voice” of Michigan Football, Bob Ufer is a University of Michigan icon. Far from being an impartial reporter, Ufer released endless kilocycles of unbridled maize and blue favoritism. For nearly four decades, Bob Ufer was beloved by a wide range of listeners for his enthusiastic, articulate and engaging style. His high-octane broadcasts had an impact on many local kids, including one who became the head football coach at Michigan, Jim Harbaugh. Recordings of Ufer’s game broadcasts have delighted Michigan fans for decades and are routinely heard at tailgate gatherings today.
