There Are 114 Days to Michigan Football

Leon Halip

Waiting for the opening Saturday of college football is agonizing. All we want is 13 weeks of Brent Musberger "pardner" one-liners, the buzz of Michigan Stadium in late November, and jokes about the Bowl Championship Series. Fear not, bleary-eyed traveler. This is a continuing series intended to get through the long, hot summer and back to the glory of football season.

Michigan's 114th team had a curious season. Three of their games ended in ties. One that didn't, however, was the 1993 Rose Bowl. It's on Big Ten Network regularly because Michigan stopped a juggernaut of a Washington team that was going for three straight Rose Bowl wins. Tyrone Wheatley set a Rose Bowl record for rushing, but most importantly, he got help from this man on his longest touchdown run:

That's Steve Everitt, and he made a glorious block to get Michigan the lead. Forget about three ties, that Rose Bowl is still one of the greats.
