On October 26, 1981, the radio voice of University of Michigan football, 61-year-old Bob Ufer, who enthusiastically and with no hint of impartiality broadcasted 364 University of Michigan football games, died of cancer.
In addition to announcing Michigan football, Ufer was also a notable Michigan athlete, setting a 1943 world record in the 440 as a student.
