UM’S EARLY SEASON WIPEOUT NOW FORGOTTEN? UH … NO: The hard working folks over at COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS, bless their hearts, confirmed today why we don’t visit their site
ever much. In a breakdown of the best college coaching jobs this season, Michigan’s Lloyd Carr was ranked #3:
“Yes, that Lloyd Carr. Think of where this team was on September 8th. The defense was supposedly too slow. The team was about to be in for the season Notre Dame is dealing with. There was no hope in sight, and Carr was as good as canned. And then the wins started coming, winning eight in a row going into the Wisconsin showdown, and Carr and his staff have done it with QB Chad Henne and Heisman-caliber RB Mike Hart getting hurt.”
When I think of the word “showdown”, the Price Is Right’s thrilling finale comes more to mind than Michigan v. Wisconsin.
And after Henne’s graceful postgame exit at Michigan State last Saturday, we’re not so sure he isn’t back on the shelf.
