Mountaineers Down Delaware In Title Game

I'm sure they could have beaten many division 1-A teams, but beating "Little Michigan" in the title game is kinda funny. They finished the season 13-2.

Ann Arbor is a suburb of Detroit, that suburb is where Appalachian State beat U of M, so I think it is allowed here by default. :-)

Question: How come nobody wants to coach U of M football?

Michigan is getting b-slapped since the timing of their announcement/Lloyds's retirement/coaching search could not be worse. They (Bill Martin et al) claim to want to take the high road and not interfere with coaches that have a job to do but what coach would be worth hiring UNLESS he had a job to do right now? This announcement should have waited until after the bowl games but U of Arrogance thought people would come running once they threw open the doors.

Funny that they are looking at a coach running the spread offense. Running a spread in the Big Ten Worked really well in East Lansing didn't it John L?

what a joke and how sad

Actually, it did. Offense was never a problem for recent MSU teams.

I'm a huge UofM fan, alumni and basically raised on UofM football. I've been to more games at the Big House than I can remember, including the App State game. As much as it feels I should hate the Mountaineers, I just can't. Not only was I actually cheering for them to threepeat I wasn't angry when they beat us. I was more shocked and angry at my own team for letting it happen. App State beating Michigan was the All-American underdog story. They made the most of a chance of a lifetime and, I feel I should be ashamed for saying this, I am glad for them. I wish that team nothing but the best. However, that sentiment only extends to App State. Ohio State can burn in hell.

Maybe Michigan should seek out the head coach of Appalachian State. He's clearly a proven winner.

Royce,

He's an old guy. Great coach, though.
