Alamo Bowl Sets Record

Turns out the Alamo Bowl was the most-watched college football game in ESPN history. That "most-watched" title gives the 2005 Alamo Bowl its second accolade of the bowl season as it was also the worst officiated game in the history of college football as well.

Nice to know that when Michigan lays an egg, the whole nation is watching.

It's all part of the Michigan spirit of giving, numerous individuals with the opposing team have career days while millions watch.

Even non-Michigan fans are talking about the horrible officiating. Tuesday Morning Quarterback, Gregg Easterbrook--who holds college football in low esteem--felt the last play was a display of "spectacular officiating ineptitude." Citing the "unfair acts" clause, he even goes so far as suggesting: "You can make a case the referee should have awarded Michigan a touchdown."

His recommended equitable resolution: "The ball should have been placed at the Nebraska 13, the point the runner reached, and Michigan given one untimed down."

That game is probably going to hurt our recruiting more than Woody Hayes ever did.
