    I just recently had a chilling revelation: Almost every player on CU's squad this year, and almost all of CU's undergrad student population in general ... WEREN'T EVEN BORN when this happened, or at the very least were still in diapers. :eek:

    Very sobering ... and just reminds me how ****ing old I am. :(

    /and not all that far removed from being in diapers again myself

    Neuheisel was on college xm this morning recapping the whole sequence, it was pretty sweet. No audio that I can find unfortunately right now. This might be all common knowledge for a lot of you, but:
    --Lot of strategery and talk went into the timeout they took on Michigan's 2nd down on their previous possession in order to make sure CU'd have some time left when they got the ball back. Were they gonna throw it on 3rd down or not I think was the debate.
    --On the play before the play, they had to use 4 wides(no time to change personnel), but the only play they had for 4 wides was the hail mary. So they had to come up with a 20 yard in route play for Westbrook in a hurry, with some options to Kidd and Anderson on digs to the outside. But it was really Westbrook or bust for 20 yards just so they could get to the 35 or whatever. And they told him he had to dive/get down if he caught it, which he did.
    --They ran the same rocket hail mary play before halftime, and both westbrook and carruth were jammed at the line, and couldn't really release. During halftime, they fixed it, so if they ran it again, they'd change their release(I believe he had them cross, or go opposite ways at least to throw off the db's.) The play may have been screwed if they hadn't learned that lesson from before half.
    --He went into detail how every receiver had a position to be in around jumper or tipper(Andersen?)--left, right and top, they weren't just randomly positioned around him.
    --He made sure Kordell knew not to throw it too early and beat everybody down the field, which happens a lot.
    --Salaam made an awesome block to give Kordell more time.
    The rest is obvious. 73 yards in the air.

    If you mean the spread, we were +5.

    I hope it doesn't come down to a Hail Mary / "Miracle" but, I would take that win also.

    I'm a law student at CU... I was just shy of my 2nd birthday when this happened.

    Another sobering time realization- High Schoolers are now being taught 9/11 as a historical event, as they weren't alive when it happened.

    i think it would be awesome if we won again via a miracle play. talk about the psychic pain that would inflict on michigan. i would enjoy watching harbooger lose his ****.

    alas, it is pretty unlikely.

    Michigan fans did not initially realize they had lost because they waited to change the scoreboard for a couple of minutes. The scoreboard showed 26-21 with no time on the clock.

    I'll tell you what - I just watched the 1994 game in its entirety.

    We played like ****.

    4 turnovers, tons of costly drive-stopping penalties, and some really dumb plays.

    That game could have been over in the first half if we had brought our A game that day.

    If we play that way tomorrow, it'll be a long day.

    Nice article ... except for this glaring error:

    "Colorado beat Notre Dame 10-9 in the Orange Bowl to wrap up an undefeated season and a national championship."

    But definitely brings back memories of Ann Arbor for me. Jerry Hanlon and I used to hang at the same bar/restaurant ... he had some great stories while we bent elbows together at the bar. Bob Ufer (radio announcer) was how we got most of the games back when there was usually only one nationally telecast game on any given Saturday. He was epic.

    And I really liked this part:

    I've always thought of the two programs in just that way ... like it or not, CU and UM are inextricably linked for all time for that reason, as well as the '94 game. It's why, although I want to beat them tomorrow, I'll be rooting for them for the rest of the season.
