Q: Why did Michigan change their field from grass to artificial turf?
A: To keep the Michigan cheerleaders from grazing at half time.

One day in an elementary school in Ann Arbor Michigan, a teacher asks her class if the Michigan Wolverines are their favorite football team. The whole class says yes except for Little Jimmy.
The teacher asks, “What’s your favorite football team Jimmy?”
Little Jimmy says, “The Ohio State Buckeyes.”
The teacher asks, “Well, why is that?”
Little Jimmy says, “Well, my dad is a Buckeye fan, my mom is a Buckeye fan, I guess that makes me a Buckeye fan.”
The teacher angered by his reply says, “If your dad was a moron and your mom was an idiot what would that make you?”
Little Jimmy says, “Well, I guess that would make me a Michigan fan.”

One foggy night, a Buckeye fan was heading north from Columbus and a Michigan fan was driving south from Ann Arbor. While crossing a narrow bridge, they hit each other head-on, mangling both cars.
The Michigan fan manages to climb out of his car and survey the damage. He looks at his twisted car and says, “Man, I’m lucky to be alive!”
Likewise, the Buckeye fan gets out of his car uninjured, he too feeling fortunate to have survived.
The Wolverine fan walks over to the Buckeye fan and says, “Hey, man, I think this is a sign that we should put away our petty differences and live as friends instead of being rivals.”
The Buckeye fan thinks for a moment and says, “You know, you’re absolutely right! We should be friends. In fact, I’m going to see if something else survived the wreck.”
The Buckeye fan then pops open his trunk and removes a full, undamaged bottle of Jack Daniel’s. He says to the Wolverine, “I think this is another sign–we should toast to our newfound friendship.” The Wolverine fan agrees and grabs the bottle. After sucking down half of the bottle, the Wolverine fan hands it back to the Buckeye fan and says, “Your turn!”
The Buckeye fan calmly twists the cap back on the bottle, throws the rest of the bottle over the bridge into the river and says, “Nah, I think I’ll just wait for the cops to show up.”

General Schwarzkopf was walking through the desert during the Gulf War when he found a lamp on the ground. He picked it up, rubbed, and out came a genie.
The genie said to the General, “I will grant you one wish.” The General replied, “I wish that we will win this war. Here is a map of the desert and all the war parties. Please make us win the war.”
The genie responded, “I’m not that powerful of a genie. I cannot grant you that wish.”

Ann Arbor News Report: Football practice in Ann Arbor was delayed on Monday for nearly two hours. One of the offensive players, while on his way to the locker room, happened to look down and notice a suspicious looking, unknown, white powdery substance on the practice field.
The head coach, Lloyd Carr, immediately suspended practice while the FBI was called in to investigate. After a complete field analysis, the FBI determined that the white substance unknown to the players was the goal line.
Practice was resumed when the FBI decided that the team would not be likely to encounter the substance again.

Four college alumni were climbing a mountain one day: an Ohio State grad, a Michigan grad, a Penn State grad, and a Notre Dame grad. Each proclaimed to be the most loyal of all fans at their alma mater.
As they climbed higher, they argued as to which one of them was the most loyal of all. They continued to argue all the way up the mountain, and finally as they reached the top, the Notre Dame grad hurled himself off the mountain, shouting “This is for the Fighting Irish!” as he fell to his doom.
Not wanting to be out done, the Penn State grad threw himself off the mountain proclaiming, “This is for the Nittany Lions!”
Seeing this the OSU grad walked over and shouted “This is for the Buckeyes!” and pushed the Wolverine off the side of the mountain.

When Bo died last year, he went up to heaven (yeah, he got in) to find St. Peter waiting for him. St. Pete greeted him and said, “Bo, come on in, we’ve been expecting you. Let me take you to your new place.”

St. Pete lead Bo down the road until they got to this cozy little cabin, a little worn for wear, with a little Michigan flag waving in the front yard.

Bo moved in and made himself at home.

That evening, Bo thought he’d go out for a walk and see the neighborhood. He walked about a block when he got to this giant mansion built out of scarlet and gray colored bricks. The driveway formed a Block O and the Ohio State Marching Band could be seen performing Script Ohio in the back yard.

Bo didn’t know what to think. On his way home, he stopped by to see St. Peter.

“I’m not one to complain,” Bo told St. Peter. “But why does Woody have such an amazing house and I just have that little cabin.”

“I’m not sure what you’re talking about,” St. Peter replied.

“That house, about a block from my house. Why does Woody get a mansion and I only get this little cabin,” Bo said.

St. Peter took one look at where Bo was pointing and said, “Oh, I’m sorry. That’s not Woody’s house. That house belongs to God.”

It’s 4th and goal, with Michigan having the ball at the Ohio State 3. OSU leads 17-13 with 2 seconds to play. Rich Rodriguez calls his last time out.

Rodriguez looks towards the Heavens and says, “God, it’s been a rough year. I understand you letting Notre Dame beat us, but making us lose to Toledo was just mean. I know I’ve used your name in vain too often this season, but I really need this win. What play should I call?”

And all of a sudden, Rodriguez, and only him, hears a bellowing voice, “Pro, king, 48 toss.”

Rodriguez’s eyes light up. He looks up, sees the face of God. “Yes, that’s it,” he exclaims, “Thanks God.”

So he sends in the play. Nick Sheridan tosses the ball to Brandon Minor around the right end. Minor sees a hole, cuts inside, and looks like he will score. Rodriguez throws his arms up in the air in triumph.

Then, all of a sudden, James Laurinaitis comes out of nowhere, and tackles Minor just short of the goal line. Ohio Stadium erupts, as Rodriguez falls to his knees, stunned.

He looks up, and sees God’s face again. Sorrowfully, he asks, “God, why did you tell me to call that play?”

God hesitates, looks to his left, and says, “Hey Woody, why did we call that play?”

Little Rhett was in his 5th grade class when the teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living. All the typical answers came up— fireman, policeman, salesman, etc.

Little Rhett was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked him about his father. ‘My father’s an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret and takes off all his clothes in front of other men. Sometimes, if the offer’s really good, he’ll go out to the alley with some guy and make love with him for money.’

The teacher, obviously shaken by this statement, hurriedly set the other children to work on some coloring, and took little Rhett aside to ask him, ‘Is that really true about your father?’

‘No,’ said little Rhett, ‘He coaches Michigan football, but I was too embarrassed to say that in front of the other kids.’

    A man walked into an Ann Arbor bar with a dachshund under his arm. The dog was wearing a Michigan jersey and helmet, and was festooned with Michigan pom-poms.

    The bartender said, “Hey! No pets are allowed in here! You’ll have to leave!”

    The guy begged him, “Look, I’m desperate. We’re both big fans, my TV is broken, and this is the only place around where we can see the game!”

    After securing a promise that the dog will behave, and warning him that he and the dog will both be thrown out if there’s any trouble, the bartender relented and allowed them to stay in the bar and watch the game.

    The big game began with the Wolverines receiving the kickoff. They marched down the field, got stopped at about the 30, and kicked a field goal.

    With that the dog jumped up on the bar, and began walking up and down the bar giving high-fives to everyone.

    The bartender said, “Wow, that is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen! What does the dog do when the Wolverines score a touchdown?”

    The owner replied, “I don’t know, I’ve only had him for 4 years.”

  3. says

    There is now a team from Michigan,

    To beat OSU is their wish again,

    But losing six straight,

    In Ann Arbor is Rodriguez, Rich,

    Too bad he can’t find his niche,

    Screams night and day,

    When things don’t go his way,

    Not beating the Bucks is a bitch.

    Michigan Cheerleaders are just like real Wolverines. They can only find some one to breed them once a year.

    Real wolverines have bad eyesight, is slow, and clumsy. The Michigan Wolverines are the same which explains the high reports male date rape crimes each school year.

    The wolverine is related to the weasel, they are known to be very shy and like most weasels the wolverine is scarcely seen in BCS games.

  10. Rick Moore says

    At Michigan University, there were four sophomore football players taking chemistry and all of them had an ‘A’ so far. These four teammates were so confident that the weekend before finals, they decided to visit some friends and have a big party.

    They had a great time but, after all the hearty partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn’t make it back to Michigan until early Monday morning. Rather than taking the final then, they decided that after the final they would explain to their professor why they missed it. They said that they visited friends, but on the way back they had a flat tire. As a result, they missed the final.
    The professor agreed they could make up the final the next day. The guys were excited and relieved. They studied that night for the exam. The next day the professor placed them in separate rooms and gave them a test booklet. They quickly answered the first problem worth 5 points. Cool, they thought! Each one in separate rooms, thinking this was going to be easy. .

    Then they turned the page. On the second page was written. . .
    For 95 points: Which tire? _________

  11. Greg says

    What’s the difference between a University of Michigan cheerleader and a washing machine? The washing machine won’t call you a week later after you drop a load in it…..

    Q: Why won’t the AKC recognize the only dog breed a Michigan fan will own?
    A: They’re not purebreds…every one of them is a Shihtz-blue.

  13. Watza Buckeye says

    Those are great jokes. Surely the Buckeyes have won more games than Michigan and I am positive that they have beaten Michigan more times than Michigan has beaten them by the tone of the Buckeyes comments on this page.

    • Stantmann says

      They have in the modern football age. Since the 50’s, OSU leads the series easily. Don’t forget the first 13 games (all UM wins) were when OSU was Div II.
      Now go get your box wine and string cheese and do some wine tasting…

  14. says

    Really Watza? Classic Meatchicken. Needs to pull out wins from the early 1900s to justify his team. You’ve got an entire generation of Michigan kids who don’t know what it means to beat Ohio State.

  15. Mark says

    Breaking News: A highly touted Detroit High School Reciever who was on the list of Michigan’s top recruits was sentenced today on a felony charge. It carried a maximum 4 year prison term. The Judge, a back up tight end under Bo in 1968 who is infamous for his no holds barred approach told the young man “Son, after much consideration, I am sending you to the ‘Big House’. Dick Rod will be provide you with the boost in the ass you need to turn your life around.” The recruit cried out…. “Judge Please! Please tell me you mean Prison!”

  16. Allan Morris says

    A contest was being held between three NCAA football players, one from Penn State, one from MSU and one from Wisconsin to see who could endure the stench of losing to OSU the longest. So it was decided that the one who could stay in a pig pen the longest would be the winner. After 20 minutes the PSU player came out complaining about the smell. Then 45 minutes later out ran the Wisconsin player screaming its too much! Three and one half hours later the pigs came out.

  17. Abdulrahman Salah says

    This is the funniest joke ever, and it is only three words.

    The University of Michigan

  18. says

    Buckeye fan was riding along in a car when he falls alseep. The driver takes a wrong turn. When the buckeye fan wakes up he looks around and says are we in hell? I can’t be dead I just can’t be dead then he sees a sign and says oh were just in Ann Arbor.
