2005 Rose Bowl Full Broadcast 720p

I understand why, as the anti-ESPN Classic, WolverineHistorian doesn't do Michigan losses. But sometimes the difference between winning and losing is so small that I feel like it's almost inconsequential when judging the overall greatness of a game. I can promise you that's not how I felt on January 1, 2005 (or January 1, 2000). I'm not sure if it's just the passing of time or what Vince Young did to the college football world the next season or both, but I definitely feel now that this is a great Michigan football game. 

This was the first time the Rose Bowl was in HD. Does anyone know if there were other Michigan games that year in HD? If not, this would be the first HD Michigan game too. Quarters 2-4 are untouched streams from a blu-ray rip. I had to re-encode the pregame/1st  quarter to get it in under YouTube's 2GB limit. OK yeah tl;dr, commence seeking for shots of GERG.

Regardless of the score, it was an amazing game.  To see Texas and Michigan finally get to play was awesome.  We had a true freshman running back and quarter back and still almost pulled this one off.  If Stevie doesn't get horse collared on the opening kickoff or Baas with that god aweful holding call on the 1st drive, I think we win this game.

Thanks again Boyz, watching this one on the HD at home today!

I was in the band. I saw the kick get deflected and thought it was short. I still have bad dreams about the overthrown flea flicker and Massey's lost sack. It should have been over when Burgess picked off Young late in the game.
