Boo-Hoo Big Blue

Don't say that I didn't sort of call it...(Proof). After possibly the largest upset in college football history what else did you expect me to write about?

First off, hats off to the Appalachian State University Mountaineers! You should be very proud and you are part of a great, great program that I think will become 3-peat D1-AA (FCS) National Champions this season, and you probably belong in the D1-A (BCS).

Next, Wolverine players, coaches and fans you should be ashamed. No D1-AA (FCS) team has ever beaten a top 25 AP ranked team. Now they've beaten a top 5 AP ranked team! Not only was the game just embarrassing for the Wolverines, but I want to know who the hell thought it would be smart to play Appalachian State for a season opener? Did they think it would be a warm-up game like many other top-ranked teams had? That was a HUGE and catastrophic scheduling mistake. There are a lot of BCS teams that they would have been better off playing, rather than just another one of those FCS "push overs".

In my opening paragraph I posed this as the biggest upset in college football history. I'm sure some of you readers cringed there, but I want you to really dig deep into your sports minds and find me a bigger upset. Without being illogical or retarded, you can't. Like I said, a D1-AA team had never beaten a ranked I-A team! There aren't many teams in the Big Ten who can go into "The Big House" and take one from Michigan. I'm calling it the biggest upset in college football history and if you disagree drop it as a comment.

As for Michigan....your season is over before it even began. Chad Henne and Mike Hart must be stoked to have come back for the 2007 season right now, and Lloyd Carr has made a complete fool of himself. This was a huge scheduling mistake and a huge coaching mockery. Carr is lucky to have such a history at Michigan and such a good relationship with his AD, because I think he deserves to lose his job. I've never fancied him as the upper-tier coach many have him thought out to be. I've always found him to be a sub-par coach, but this has sealed the deal for me. Considering that it made no sense to schedule this game, especially as their opener. That along with the actual coaching that went on during the game, and cap it off with the stunning post game conference, where Carr literally didn't know what to say (I looked on YouTube but it's not up yet. I'm sure it's a matter of hours) and I really can comfortably tell you that I don't think Lloyd Carr is a good coach. He is a sub-par coach at best who greatly benefits from having the great, blue-chip, talented prospects that the U. of Michigan draws. Even today, they couldn't save him.

After the upset here is what I know for sure: Michigan won't be ranked next week (or shouldn't anyways), Lloyd Carr is going to face some potent fan dissatisfaction, Michigan's only hope for a BCS bowl is to run the table and win the Big Ten, and you can expect to see a lot of Appalachian State Mountaineers apparel around the Big Ten this year, I was rooting for the Mountaineers all along, I loved every minute of Michigan going down today and took an intensely gratifying and sick pleasure from Michigan's misery.

I don't even watch college football and barely ever follow it before December, but I even raised my eyebrows very high when I saw this...
Incredible upset.

Lloyd Carr should probably start updating his resume.

Also, shame on Bryan for not following college football. But I suppose when you are a Lions fan the thought of football is pretty depressing.

It is Jon... it really is.

Understandable.

you should probably repent bryan....I talked to Fr. Eberle while I was in town and he told me that your repentence is that you much watch atleast 6 hours of college football a weekend for 6 weeks and bring him corn on the cob when you come back for christmas.

Don't shoot the messenger...that's just what he told me.

Bryan said...

i'll kill the messenger joe, not shoot, because there are other ways to kill people.

and although i have follow OU for the past few years, i really can't say that i have a specific team to follow. i'm just a fan, and college football usually takes a backseat to NFL (the lions) this time of year. so i do follow it, just not closely enough to have predictions and whatnot.

"i hope they have corn on the cob, i looove corn on the cob. i like cereals, i like kix, trix, i love um all"

for the record, Golden Grahams is my favorite. Honey Bunches of Oats is also up there.

Nice call on the upset. I think you would have been laughed out of the room a few days ago.
