There Are 113 Days to Michigan Football

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.

The 1991 Michigan team that only lost two games (one of those being a nightmare loss to Florida State that I look disdainfully upon to this day) may be most commonly known for one image.



Desmond Howard still holds the Michigan record for single-season receiving touchdowns (19), but his crowning achievement was locking up the Heisman vote with his kick return. Team 113 had the talent to be the best in college football that year, and came close. At least we'll always have the Heisman pose as our own.
