Tony Pape interview is great....

"that's right... it's all our own... we're stingy b.... we're stingy this year"  "Almost said something there, didn'tcha?"  That's great!

The link is blocked at work but based on the comments I'd guess this is a highlight reel from '03 OSU.

No bullshit, rushing the field that day was the greatest single event of my life.  Can't wait for more days like that.

Kind of makes me sad to see Chris Perry in his prime and now to think of some of the difficulties he's had since in his professional life and more recently in his personal life and the struggles his mother has gone through, health-wise.

I guess Lloyd didn't know that prior to 2003, the 97 championship team was NOT the only squad to go 7-0 at the big house during one season.  Blue accomplished that several times under Bo.

As soon as I uploaded this, I got depressed not only because this was the last time we beat OSU but because we have now gone 5 full seasons without winning a conference title.  The last time we went this long without winning a Big Ten championship was the 1960's.

That day was nothing short of AWESOME.  I was a senior so it was great to see them go out on top.  Plus that was such a great OSU team to beat; with Hawk, Carpenter, Holmes and Salley among others.  I HATED those Bucknuts more than any other OSU team ever. 

OSU had more talent but Michigan straight outplayed them.  That's why we haven't won since.  OSU  consistently has had more talent but they have also outplayed us almost every single year.  2003 was a near perfect game.  I'm proud of that team, particularly Perry who played his ass off that game. 

I'm pissed at my self for not appreciating Lloyd enough in his day.  I can't believe I'd be longing for the good ol days of LLoyd Carr Michigan football.  (I'm sorry but I'm kind of an RR hater and I just watched the replay of the 2003 game and I miss real Big Ten championship football.  I don't particularly like the Big East brand).

It is sad to hear that this Big Ten title draught is one of the longest ever.  But, after that 1960s dry spell do you know what happened?  Bo Schembechler happened.  Maybe we'll get lucky again soon.   Until then we'll just have to keep savoring the 2003 championship.  Woloverine Historian thanks again.  Go Blue!
