As a rival fan my hat's off to Michigan for an incredible accomplishment---wow, that's a lot of Hail Victors!
With all the changes in CFB, programs rise and fall: the Florida St's, Boise St's, and Oregons come and go. Winning NINE HUNDRED says: we've been really good in the past and present, and will always be really good. An occasional dip here and there, but over the long haul, excellence endures. That's what separates the men from the boys.
The most impressive thing about this milestone besides the wins is that Michigan runs a clean big time program. No Oklahoma or Alabama here.
Been a few posts here and around the web about "900", thought you guys would whoop it up more on this board, maybe the celebration on the field sufficed (whatever you were celebrating)--after all it's your victory and record so enjoy as you see fit.
This week's game against Nebraska will likely decide the Legends and maybe the B1G title. Cool fact, the game will also be the first conference game in college football history where both teams have won at least 850 games all-time.
As extra juice for the home crowd, Nebraska will also be commemorating 50 years of sellout crowds at Memorial Stadium,while playing all-timer leader Michigan in your first game ever at Memorial Stadium.
Preseason I figured this game for the divisional showdown, looking forward to a fantastic game. Your team and fans will be treated with respect, win or lose. We'll appreciate your team's history and accomplishments as much as any fan base you'll ever meet.
Picture shows Antelope Field, where Michigan played last time you visited Lincoln in..........1911. This will be your first visit to Memorial Stadium
