chance of bowl: 13.6%
I understand why, as the anti-ESPN Classic, WolverineHistorian doesn't do Michigan losses. But sometimes the difference between winning and losing is so small that I feel like it's almost inconsequential when judging the overall greatness of a game. I can promise you that's not how I felt on January 1, 2005 (or January 1, 2000). I'm not sure if it's just the passing of time or what Vince Young did to the college football world the next season or both, but I definitely feel now that this is a great Michigan football game.
This was the first time the Rose Bowl was in HD. Does anyone know if there were other Michigan games that year in HD? If not, this would be the first HD Michigan game too. Quarters 2-4 are untouched streams from a blu-ray rip. I had to re-encode the pregame/1st quarter to get it in under YouTube's 2GB limit. OK yeah tl;dr, commence seeking for shots of GERG.
Yay for Michigan, Hart, Henne, Long, Manningham, Arrington, Carr, but Mattison got BOOM DEBORD'D. I'll add the second half to this post when it finishes processing.
I found this article while I was at work and thought it was pretty cool. The article basically quotes Hart saying that his dream job is to coach at Michigan one day. Here is the link: Enjoy
This picture is from the BYU - Utah St. basketball game last night. It looks like the Cougars have been taking a page from the Mike Hart book of brotherhood.
Looking forward to seeing some Mike Hart carries and touchdowns today. I'm keeping my eyes on him so I can (EDIT: see) his pass blocking as well.
This came up on the sidebar for my fantasy football website:
"Indianapolis Colts RB Mike Hart could be asked to carry the load in Week 8 against the Houston Texans if RBs Joseph Addai (shoulder) and Donald Brown (hamstring) are unable to play, according to The Indianapolis Star's Phillip B. Wilson. 'It's kind of a day-to-day situation. If he doesn't go, obviously Mike Hart has to be the guy to step it up a little bit, and Javarris James will have to carry a few duties as well,' head coach Jim Caldwell said."
I hope he has 100+ yards and a couple of TDs.
