I like this game, but the BTN airs it too often.  Ditto for the 2000 Orange Bowl.  The BTN needs a bigger library of games.

I never tire of watching Tebow pick grass out of his facemask. The hicks who say that Michigan is a thing of the past forget that this was only three years ago. It took only a few months to go from this team to Disaster. Hopefully it doesn't take more than a few months to go from a 7 win team with no defense to 9 wins.

Ridiculous comment.

You're right, it doesn't take three years to install your basic offense with the tweaks of running more shotgun, a couple surprise runs out of shotgun, and more posts and flys with less hitches and screens.

The spread option took longer to implement because a) Michigan was truly ill-prepared for a transition given quarterback personnel and b) The pace of a no-huddle offense as well as the play-calling system is completely different in terms of tempo/rhythm.

At work right now, love getting my Michigan fix in whenever I can. I was just complaining to my housemates before the 2000 Orange Bowl showing yesterday, that I hadn't seen any good Michigan games on BTN in forever now I have to miss it... Damn you work, damn you...

depressing listening to RichRod in the broadcast booth, so full of hope and a twinkle in his eye. Oh, 2008 RichRod, there is so much I want to warn you about. In particular this guy named "Sheridan," and repeated explanations of the word "compliance." Things went so horribly wrong from that point onward. *Tear*

Agree with a lot of the comments.  This game is absolutely fantastic in so many ways. Awesome way for Lloyd to go out on top, awesome to see Tebow go down, and great to see Michigan perform in a bowl game

However, yes, this game is aired pretty often.  The Big Ten Network could use more variety in their replay games.  I'd like to see some more dedication to past "big games" of late.  Maybe Michigan and ND?
