# 166: Thanksgiving Show V: H4IL to the Victors Valiant

The DJBC Happy Hour is a weekly radio show on WCRS-FM, hosted by the DJBC himself. The show changes themes from week to week, keeping the show fresh, and the listeners on their toes.

59:48 minutes (54.75 MB)

Tonight on the show,

#TheGame: # 8-ranked Ohio State B*ckeyes (10-1, 6-1) travel to Ann Arbor to play # 12-ranked Michigan (9-2, 6-1) in the 112th edition of "The Rivalry". For the first time in 28 years, two coaches who know and deeply understand the importance of the rivalry take center stage.


Can Michigan beat Ohio, or will the B*cks make it 13 out of 15? Michigan is coming off a lackluster 28-16 win at Penn State, while Ohio's 23-game winning streak was snapped in a 17-14 loss to Michigan State.


- Since 1930, first-year Michigan coaches are 7-1 in "The Game": 2011 (40-34 win; Brady Hoke); 2008 (the one skidmark: a 42-7 Ohio thumping; R*ch R*dr*g**z); 1995 (31-23 win; Lloyd Carr, after Ohio receiver Terry Glenn talked smack); 1990 (16-13 win in Columbus; Gary Moeller); 1969 (24-12 - snapping Ohio's 22-game winning streak; "The Greatest College Football Team Ever Assembled" was Ohio in '69; Bo Schembechler); 1959 (23-14 win; Bump Elliott); 1948 (13-3 win; Bennie Oosterbaan; last outright UM National Championship); 1938 (18-0 win; Fritz Crisler).

- This is the first meeting where both teams are ranked in the AP Poll since 2012 (a 26-21 Ohio win in Columbus), and the Coaches' Poll since 2007 (a 14-3 Ohio win in Ann Arbor). The last Michigan win when both teams were ranked was 2003 (35-21 win; since then Ohio has gone 10-1).

- Jim Harbaugh was 2-0 as a starting quarterback (1985: a 27-17 win in Ann Arbor; 1986: "The Guarantee", a 26-24 win in Columbus) at Michigan, the latter game, Ohio Head Coach Urban Meyer was a graduate assistant under Earle Bruce.

- First game in "The Game" since 1987 (Earle Bruce & Bo Schembechler) with two coaches that understand the importance of this game.

- Since 1951, first-year Michigan coaches are 0-7 against Michigan State, but 5-1 against the B*ckeyes.

- No first-year Michigan coach has lost to the B*cks in Ann Arbor since 1929 (a 7-0 Ohio win).

# 124: The News of the Day (DJBC Happy Hour Classic)


59:31 minutes (54.5 MB)

Tonight is a re-broadcast of # 124: "The News of the Day" (originally broadcast on October 6, 2014).

In tonight's show...
What the hell is going on in Ann Arbor with the Michigan football program? What can be the remedy to this problem?

Plus, other headlines of the week (from Early October)...

It's only 18 Days until A New Era Begins in Ann Arbor (but on the road in Salt Lake City), and only 22 Days until the Champs go down shorthanded (no pun intended) in Blacksburg!

# 29: I've Got Plenty To Be Thankful For....


58:49 minutes (53.84 MB)

Tonight, a re-broadcast of Show # 29, "I've Got Plenty To Be Thankful For...." (Originally Broadcast: November 21, 2011), which started a new tradition on WCRS, shaming the Ohio B*ckeyes. 2011 was a down year for Ohio, having lost their quarterback and head coach to a cash and memorabilia for tattoos scandal, and saw big players suspended for several games, including their star receiver, who sat out TEN games, for their roles in Tattoogate. Michigan was returning to its former glory under first-year coach Brady Hoke, and favored to beat Ohio for the first time since 2004. Michigan would go on to hold off Ohio with a Courtney Avery interception with 39 seconds left, as Michigan beat Ohio for the first time since 2003, 40-34.

Tonight's show previews that glorious moment in all of college sports, with a Scooby Doo-type spoof, plus celebrity chefs sharing their own Game Day recipes for the B*ckeyes.

SONG LIST:
"I've Got Plenty To Be Thankful For" - Bing Crosby
"The Thing" - Phil Harris
"Hang on Sloopy" - The McCoys
"Hawaiian War Chant" - The Muppets
