NOVEMBER 2018 THE WOLVERINE 11   INSIDE MICHIGAN ATHLETICS Fifth-year senior defensive end Chase Winovich, when asked if he's played his best football of the season yet "I want to be a shark in a game full of guppies. I'm working toward that." "Everybody can see [junior quarterback] Shea [Patterson] is playing very well. My seven-year-old daughter, Katie, plays no sports and doesn't want to be involved in them, and is doing Girl Scouts. Even she says the quar- terback is playing well. I'll go with Katie." — Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh, when asked what his response would be to criticisms of junior quarterback Shea Patterson "I wanted more than a regular physical and actually almost missed my stress test because I had to go recruiting. I left to catch a plane, and came back afterward and my doctor reminded me to get the stress test. They told me soon after they found blockage near my heart, and next thing I know I'm on the operating table at 5:30 in the morning." — Michigan head basketball coach John Beilein on the Harbaugh "Attack Each Day" podcast, discussing the events that led to his double-bypass surgery "He's a 6-3, 250-pound jackhammer. If you're a defensive player and you're going up against him, you better have your helmet strapped on tight be- cause it's going to be a violent collision." — Former Michigan All-Big Ten of- fensive lineman Doug Skene, discussing sophomore fullback Ben Mason "Harbaugh preached to us to stay loose, and I think we've done that. We've done it these last few weeks — football is a fun game, and it's fun to win, so do it with a smile on your face. We weren't too tight, but when you're having fun, you make more plays. For us, it's about playing hard and being emotional — cheer and go celebrate with your teammates after a score. Sometimes you just smile and run off, but it's important to remember it's a game and you should have fun." — Junior left guard Ben Bredeson on the keys to the offense's continued improvement THEY SAID IT 1969 MICHIGAN vs OHIO STATE GAME Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor, Michigan NOW ON DVD!!

Some sportswriters were calling the Buckeyes the greatest college team of all time and had installed Ohio State as 17-point favorites –— at Michigan Stadium! But, by the end of the day, a sky-high Michigan team led by first year head coach Bo Schembechler, had totally outplayed Ohio State in front of an all-time NCAA record crowd of 103,588, had tied for the Big Ten Title and was heading to the Rose Bowl!
