Show all series level scope and content notes
The Michigan Replay collection consists of videotape recordings of broadcasts of weekly (in season) coach's show for University of Michigan football and men's basketball. The football Michigan Replay Show went on the air in 1975 with twelve to sixteen programs per year. Larry Adler was the host from 1975 to 1979 when Jim Brandstatter took over. In 2008 the title was changed to Inside Michigan Football. The basketball coach's show was first broadcast in 1990 under the title Michigan Basketball Preview and became Michigan Replay in 1999/2000.
The format of the half-hour show was a host and the head coach in a studio setting reviewing the previous weeks games and previewing the upcoming games. Typically there would be one or more guests and often a short topical story. The shows were recorded on 3/4-inch videotape through 1993 and then on BetaSp tape. There are 1-inch tapes for some programs. Tapes for some programs are missing. The football Michigan Replay shows 1975-1992 (those recorded on 3/4-inch tape) have bee digitized.
