I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
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.

a safety, a running back and a tight end
's forced "fumble" was even, ostensibly, the "game-winning" play
Eh...let's give credit where credit is due. The game-winning play was made by a Buckeye and a RedHawk.
It was still a great play by Woodley, but even without that play, there was a very miniscule chance that Arizona would have been able to travel 60 or 70 yards with less than 10 seconds on the clock.
i think his right foot might not have hit the turf. just saying.
he did, however, have an OSU booster touch it for him and thus won a RMNC* in addition to the Super Bowl. replay officials were silent on the matter, patiently waiting for clarett to lower his piece.
(really mythological national championship)
