THE BIG CHILL:

Michigan should be ashamed by stunning loss: Big Ten also is red-faced after Appalachian State's incredible 34-32 win (Steve Silverman, 9/2/07, MSNBC)

@#$% Appalachian State!

From now on the tiny school from western North Carolina will be known as @#$% Appalachian State whenever the subject of the Mountaineers comes up in Ann Arbor.

This team did the near-impossible in walking into Michigan Stadium and coming out with the 34-32 upset of a team that was ranked No. 5 in the nation, the Big Ten favorite and had national championship aspirations. [...]

Never before had a team from college football’s lower division beaten a ranked team. To think that it could have happened against perhaps the most storied program in the Big Ten is mind-boggling.

Not to mention humiliating. This is beyond embarrassment, not only for the Wolverines but for the entire Big Ten conference. When the preseason favorite loses at home to Division 1-AA team (now known as the Football Championship Subdivision), there is going to be egg on the faces of every conference member.


Not to mention soon to be ex-Michigan coach Lloyd Carr, whose positive accomplishments will always be overshadowed by being on the losing side of the greatest upset in college football history. And considering that Big Ten teams win so many games with late field goals, it's just poetic justice that their last two attempts got blocked.
