Colorado V. Michigan 1994- How Far We Have Fallen



Happen to stumble across an ESPN Classic showing of "The Catch" and watching this makes me cringe at how far we (and Michigan too) have fallen since those glory years.  Names like Kordell, Salaam, Westbrook, Johnson (Ted), Lepsis, Fauria, and even Carruth  bring back memories of better football days.  Even had the legendary Keith Jackson calling the game!

Hopefully we will one day get back to this level of play and national prominence.

At the risk of dating myself, I remember the game well watching it from a sports bar near Sea-Tac airport in Seattle, WA with my brother who was visiting for the weekend.  About 10 of us went absolutely nuts at the end and I vividly remember the loud mouth MI fan who couldn't shut up the entire game, just sitting there staring at the big screen with his mount open (and nothing coming out)

For those of you old enough, what was your story?
