Slippery Rock 49 OSU 0 T-Shirt


The long, somewhat odd relationship between Michigan and Slippery Rock began in 1959, when Michigan Stadium's public address announcer, Steve Filipiak, perusing through the national scores on the wire services ticker, came across one team name he thought sounded funny. In an effort to excite the quiet crowd during a slow game, he decided to announce the score of Slippery Rock University's game, and was surprised to hear the fans cheer louder for it than they did for any other score.

The announcement of the score of the small western Pennsylvania school's games quickly became a tradition that continues today, and still produces the loudest cheer of any score announced. One can only dream of the sound in The Big House if Slippery Rock ever played OSU.
