That's Right -- HAIL to the Victors!

"It doesn't matter where we go,'' Larry Stevens said before walking into Michigan's boisterous locker room. "We beat Ohio State!''

It does matter where we go, and it'd be nice if LSU and USC lose, and the other 2 loss teams wind up with less strength of schedule/rankings history. But yes, the Rose Bowl is a nice consolation, even though either an Iowa or Oregon win would have assured us of Sugar.

Hi Chet --

Thanks for stopping by! Like all true Michigan football fans -- especially those who had their expectations forever set artificially high, due to Michigan winning a national championship during their senior year -- I agree with you. That said, when Michigan beats Ohio State, all is again right with the world.

For at least a little while.

All I can say is that, having been fortunate enough to have been present for the great victory, is that the Big House was the happiest place on Earth that day.
