the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
Michigan Wins a Super Bowl
As has been advertised pretty much everywhere within a 40 mile radius of the borders of Michigan (and we're a peninsula so that's pissing a whooooooole lotta people off), UofM had seven players representing the Wolverines in the Super Bowl.
Those seven include:
Pittsburgh's linebackers Larry Foote and LaMarr Woodley and, from the Arizona Cardinals, defensive tackles Alan Branch and Gabe Watson, wide receiver and punt returner Steve Breaston, linebacker Victor Hobson and tight end Jerame Tuman.
Several different message boards have seen the disclaimer "Why bring them up? None of them won a NC or BCS bowl!" First off: shut up. Second of all: your mom just yelled down the steps, your Hot Pockets are ready. Tuman was on the '97 team and is, according to the UM haters, still looking for a Nebraska player to merge his NC ring with so that he, in fact, will not have a .5 Championship.
Michigan's seven players topped all other football programs represented in the Super Bowl. Other programs with three or more players included:
Florida State (5), Texas (4), Alabama (4), Illinois (4), UCLA (3!), BYU (3), Arizona State (3), USC (3), Virginia (3), PSU (3), LSU (3), N Carolina (3), Minnesota (3), Miami (3),
Ohio State had 1. Supposedly he did something important, I dunno. I missed it because I was too busy going upstairs to get my Hot Pockets.
