Without giving too much boring information, I live in South Carolina and my parents are big Clemson fans. I miraculously became a Michigan fan after seeing Desmond strike the pose in 1991. I was 6. I've been obsessed ever since.
I've seen the 1979 highlights countless times but growing up in SC and not being able to attend my first Michigan game until 2006, I don't get to talk Michigan football history with many people, aside from MGoBlog, forums, etc.
Was there anything significant about the Indiana game of 1979? I realize how ridiculously awesome Wangler to Carter is by itself but is there any storyline behind that game? I've just always wondered if that game had more context or if it was simply a great moment in Michigan football history. Can anyone help?
