The season of random summer conversation starters is winding down, but not quite over. Today I wanted to pose the question of what games from Michigan history people have an irrational fondness for. No obvious choices like 1997 Ohio State or the Syracuse game in the Final Four. I'm looking for random blow-outs, unimpressive wins, or any other form of game that is generally unmemorable, but that you go back and watch the highlights of (or replay them mentally) again and again. Might be because of a favorite player or a weird play, could be because of a friend or family member you went to the game with - your reason is up to you.
For me, the Air Force game a couple years ago ranks high. Denard was absolutely fantastic at points, ending up with 101% of Michigan's total yardage. Also, I love watching the triple option, so getting to see Air Force was nice, if frustrating. Thankfully we did manage to slow them down just enough that I can remember it fondly.
