App State makes themselves at home in the BIG HOUSE!

It's now being called the greatest upset in sports history, not college history, sports history. Even over the Miracle on Ice, USA over Russia in Olympic hockey. And rightfully so. I mean this is Michigan, they have the most wins in the history of Division 1A football, err FBS and they were playing at home in front of 100,000 or so fans. True life David vs Goliath. If this were college basketball it would be the likes of a 16 seed beating a 1 seed, something that has never happened.

This was the greatest upset in sports history, plain and simple. Never in the history of college football has a division 1AA school (FCS) beat a ranked 1A school (FBS). And this wasn't like Michigan was a top 20 or top 15 school, they were ranked #5 in the nation. Had the likes of a lower tiered Big 10 school beat them it would've been considered an upset but this takes on an even greater meaning.

I awoke on Sunday morning expecting to turn on ESPN's Sports Center and finding the following headline, 'Michigan fires Lloyd Carr', alas but nothing. I likened it to my high school days when Citadel beat Arkansas and the very next day they fired the head coach. So I figured the situation and record in big games coupled with this disaster of epic proportions was enough for Michigan nation to say enough is enough.

Well he has so far escaped being fired but I'm sure he's on a short leash now. I would say unless he beats OSU (something he can't do) or wins out the remaining games he's out as head coach. There's no coming back from a meltdown like this.

The following coaches would like to say thanks to Lloyd Carr; Charlie Weis, Bobby papa Bowden and Al Groh.

Oh by the way: Michigan also becomes the first team to drop from the Top 5 to completely out of the Top 25 in one week.

they shouldnt be calling it the "greatest upset in sports history." We will only be able to finalize that statement until the end of the season. Then we can go back and look at this game and be like .... "okay, michigan ended up 11-1, this was a huge upset for app state." But what if michigan loses like 5 more ball games, maybe they just weren't that good and it wasnt that big of an upset ya know?
