WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.  That's all I have to say about that.  This looked to be a mirror image of 2004, where Michigan scored two late touchdowns and pulled out a win in OT.  The same event was about to occur here, except for one crucial third down play:  Danny Fortener jumped a route and Chris L. Rucker plucked the ball out of thin air.  From there, it was one heart-rending missed pitch, one decent pass, and one awe-inspiring Larry Caper run to victory.

Forget all of this team's flaws tonight.  It's time to party.  We'll go more in depth later, but for now get off the internet, AND CELEBRATE!
