I was wondering about that...was the first 1:12 being shown live on ESPN/2 at the time? do any of the upcoming scheduled replays have the game in its entirety?

Not a huge deal, but 100 years from now when the historians are trading rare copies of games, would be nice to have the whole broadcast. 


(for those of you who were at the game - ABC didn't start broadcasting until after the Auburn vs. MSU game was finished)

I just went to watch the beginning again on ESPN3.com's replay, and first the picture (of their pre-game hype video) came on without sound, then when the commentators were talking on screen the audio was of the 2nd quarter of the Temple game.  I rebooted and got the same thing.  Eventually the correct sound took over, well before the beginning of the game, but the video quality was not great. 

My reason for re-watching the beginning was to see if I could make out the names of the Michigan alumni who died on 9/11.  Perhaps I should make this a separate post, but in listening to the names read here in NYC in this morning's memorial, two young boys (separately) ended their tributes to their dads with "Go Blue" and a smile.  Also saw a young boy looking over the names engraved in the new memorial wearing a Michigan hat.  Anyone know if there is some video of the full jumbotron list?  Only 7 of the 18 names were shown on the broadcast.
