"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
2008 Capital One Bowl on BTN now
one of the few fond bowl memories of my young life.
Everytime I watch it I think about how that was only 4 years ago, and yet when you consider what happened in those 4 years, it seems like an eternity.
And was surrounded by Florida fans beside myself and two buddies. It was a glorious event once that final second ran off. What a way to send off Lloyd. Also, Arringtons catch is one of the best catches I've seen in Michigan history.
Greg Mathews with a nice right uppercut to the jaw.
The Florida game of 2008 on tv right before the Sugar Bowl is a good omen.
I won't lie. I thought we were going to get killed in that game. I was living in Miami and thought very hard about making the trip. I ended up deciding not to and it has haunted me since. I was hoping they would come for the Orange Bowl, but they'll be back in Florida soon enough.
the fanbase the finger. "See all these weapons? Imagine if I'd used them properly in the past! Oh the championships we could have won!" Had he run that offense a year ago with Manningham, Arrington and Breaston, maybe we play for a national championship.
It's kind of silly to bash the only coach to win a national title here in the last 60 years for not winning championships.
It's funny now...but I was pissed when Mike Hart fumbled that ball and was laughing about it.
I don't want to start another thread, but here is an article about Toussaint over on wolverinenation.com
Lot of insight into how he plays and his background. Fitz is tough.
I was there with my brother and I had a great time. Even if we had lost a close game I still would have had a good time.
That said, that team was loaded that year. App St killed their mojo early but they rallied to have a good year. I think Lloyd coached way too conservatively te entire year until that game. If he and Debord had unleashed that aerial attack throughout the year, might have been a different story. I know D wasn't great but it was serviceable.
games I have seen ever......Awesome ..
