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.
In 1973, Michigan played 11 games and didn't lose a single one.
The final game, however, was a tie against Ohio State. 10-10. The Big Ten athletic directors would vote Ohio State into the Rose Bowl that season.
That is still bullshit to this day.
