Michigan Actually Wins a Bowl Game

The Michigan Seniors were 0-3 in Bowl games, and 0-4 against Ohio State in their careers. Lloyd Carr was coaching his last game in the Capital One Bowl against the Florida Gators. So...Michigan comes out with a fast paced offense and blitzing defense against Florida and hangs 41 on the defending champs. Instead of us falling a sleep in our platform beds during the game we actually got to see some excitement. Michigan played better than they had in maybe 2 years. It begs the question though: Where was this all year? Carr needed to retire. This game showed why. It was real apparent that they have the talent to win, and the speed in that game. Too bad it took until that game to see it really used. Welcome Rich Rodriguez.
