...which makes the App State loss even worse. It just showed that the team had the talent to beat the best of them, they just couldn't get it done.
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
florida was a 4 loss team that year - not exactly the best of them.
I mean that would be true of any UM win that season, considering there's no other team that has ever been top 5 preseason and lost to a FCS school..
IE- UM's the only team to lose to a FSC team and then beat Eastern Michigan
And, while I get that Florida was still "technically" the defending champs- they were champs for one more week and that team was not even as close to the NT team (9 players drafted, 2 1st rounders)
That UF team finished 3rd in the SEC East and ended up with 4 losses..
So while you are "technically" correct UF were the defending champs- seems like you're just trying to highlight that to make the W over a 4 loss UF team seem that much better
Good point, and I knew you had played Vandy regularly, I guess I tossed out "extra" because we didn't play them. We played pretty much the same schedule (Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Miss State, LSU, each other), and then we played Ole Miss while you played Kentucky and Vanderbilt.
And Georgia wasn't an annual game, but you had played them 51 times right up to 1965, and then played them four times in the 70s. So it wasn't too out of the blue.
I guess Kentucky was more of an "extra", as you hadn't played them since the 1940's, played them in 72 and 73, but then not again until 80 and then only 10 more times up to now. That was actually more of the "extra" I guess.
And really, playing Vanderbilt wasn't a joke a long time ago. Up to 1950 Vanderbilt had the 8th best record in football (ahead of Ohio State, Nebraska, USC, Oklahoma, etc). Even through 1960 they still were 11th best overall (3rd in the SEC).
Michigan in 05' 1 point loss on last play with a second remaining. Only loss that season and to this day only college football game played at 60 minutes and 2 extra seconds.

2003 FSU aka The Swindle In The Swamp
I'll go with "the miracle at michigan" game. Kordel stewart threw a 64 yard hail marry pass to win colorodo won 27-26. Pissed me off!
1991 loss to Illinois our only loss of the year (38-31) we recovered on onside kick and got for the first ever excessive celebration (the miami rule) and it was enforced wrong. We faced a 1st and 25 when it should've been 15 yards and 1st and 10. It deflated the team and we lost. Thanks Big 10 officails!!!!
2010 Liberty Bowl, we worry rolling over Arky and 2 picks got them back in the game and lost in OT 17-20
Soccer is Cool!
The 2 losses to Clemson last year. One of the worst defenses in the entire country and we only score 10 points on them in 2 games. Awful. I'm guessing most VT fans will say JMU but you can't even get upset at that, it was just hilarious.
Boise was a worse loss than JMU.
Gators will talk about that game for years even though we had bad calls against us too in that, and it is not our fault your defense could not stop our offense in the last seconds.
Auburn last year. Thanks Garcia.
Most definitely. "Henne to Manningham" still makes me mad every time I hear it.
Agreed. The Boise loss sucked too. I was so hyped for that game.
don't know how i missed kentucky, but going back and looking at it, they are definitely the unusual game.
uf was the only one close to uk in terms of games played to that point (vs bama), but both au and bama played uf, so it doesn't matter in that sense.
02 Oklahoma, 94 & 08 Florida, 07 LSU, and 97 Iron Bowl.
