Maize and Blue on the way to Jacksonville

Hail to the Victors!

The Michigan Wolverines, who finished the regular season with a 7-5 record, are headed to the city of Jacksonville, Florida, and the Gator Bowl Game on New Years Day.

I saw the Wolverines 20 years ago when they played Ole Miss and beat the Rebels, 35-3.

The Wolverines ran all over Mississippi, collecting over 700 yards of total offense.

The entire Michigan offensive line was named MVP, a first in Gator Bowl history.

Sitting behind the Michigan bench in the old Gator Bowl Stadium was great.

Desmond Howard, Derrick Alexander, Elvis Grbac, and company ran up and down the field, and the Michigan defense stopped the Rebels all day long, led by defensive coordinator Lloyd Carr.

Michigan returns to the Gator bowl to fave the other Magnolia State school, , the Bulldogs of Mississippi State, who beat the Gators in their last trip to Florida earlier this year.

The Wolverines will be led by Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, and the Chicago Tribune's Silver Football winner as the Big Ten's MVP.

Robinson broke the NCAA record for most rushing yards in a season, by a QB, with 1.643.

Robinson was also the 1st player in NCAA history to run and pass for 1,500 yards+ in a single season.

I will be in the stands, rooting for my Wolverines, and I'll take in as many activities as possible, including practice, if possible.

Go Blue!
