Premieres Tues Jan 14th at 10pm EST.
Still remember staying up late on a school night as a kid, watching the game w my grandpa, on my knees praying when Rumeal went to the line.
1997 Michigan team being profiled tonight on Big Ten Network at 8 PM EST
I just wanted to put this in a post that all of us could agree in.
We got dominated. Literally. I am the biggest Michigan hockey fan on this site probably. I know the game, but we were not the better team. Damn!
The unfortunate thing about tonight was the disallowed goal that should have counted, and the shitty refs. We literally got screwed on numerous calls, or non-calls.
I feel like shit, but I never expected our team to make the Frozen Four, let alone the championship in overtime. These kids played harder than I have seen a team (thats across all sports I have watched) in a long time (professionally and collegiately).
There are not any moral victories in sports (even if coaches say so), but I was proud of this team.
ps. I'm so mad we lost but tried to keep my self together.
While reading this (WARNING: Freep) article I noticed in one of the photos (#11 of 13, in case anyone wants to take a look) that Sparty claims six (!) national championships in football:
Indeed, the Wikipedia page on the program says the same thing:
Of note, I see "AP" in there only once. Is that why Sparty doesn't brag about those? Or, do they just not know their history?
SIAP, even if it was a couple of years ago. As some of you may know, the Bentley Library has a page devoted to Michigan's eleven national titles:
As noted there, "Determining a college football cational [sic] champion has never been an exact science."
