Instant Classic


If you ever wondered why college football is so incredibly popular and you saw last night’s Michigan-Notre Dame game, now you know why.

If you saw the game and you weren’t wowed, check  your pulse.  You may be dead.

Playing their first night game in the Big House in front of 114,000 fans, the two teams played a fairly ordinary game for three quarters.  That said, the fourth quarter was phenomenal and the final 1:12 was almost unbelievable.

In the final 72 seconds, the two teams scored 21 points with the Wolverines striking last with 2 seconds remaining to claim a 35-31 victory.

Michigan QB Denard Robinson was wildly inconsistent but crazy productive when it counted.  He completed just  11 of 24 passes, but averaged almost 31 yards per completion.  He threw for four touchdowns and rushed for 94 yards and another TD.

Notre Dame’s quarterback Tommy Rees, who appears to be 16, was good as well.  He threw for 315 yards and two scores.  QB ratings were 152.2 Rees and 194.1 for Robinson.
