    I don't think that is accurate, at all. Tell that to Bo Schembechler and Michigan fans.

    As a big time college football fan, I have absolutely zero idea how many Rose Bowls Bo won. The one thing I do know is that he never won a national championship.

    If Michigan claimed national titles the way MSU does, Bo would have won 1973 and 1985.

    Dantonio is turning into the new Bo, at least as far as the bowl records go.

    Not surprising. Odd day for a meaningless game. Last I checked last week the UM hadn't even sold out their Sugar Bowl allotment.

    Why do they keep throwing it short of the marker on 4th down?

    So frustrating

    Game is going horribly and now we're starting to talk about Michigan in the game thread. KILL ME NOW.

    Roushar is shockingly coaching like a numbnuts today.

    Personally, I'd like to see some Maxwell for fun. He'll probably be dominated by this defense though.

    Yeah, not exactly sure why the Bo reference was necessary earlier...

    Nonetheless, how about three pick sixes!

    His record in bowl games and the Rose Bowl was a significant part of his legacy and he was consistently questioned about his record in those games throughout his career and after his career was over. He was 2-8 in the Rose Bowl. The idea that bowl games are meaningless is a new one to me.

    I meant on 3rd down, leading to 4th down, but yea the playcalling has been bad.

    Huge turnover maybe will get state some momentum

    I think that proves my point. I had absolutely no idea what Bo's record was...therefore it's not part of his "legacy" in my mind.

    playcalling has been much better this drive. I like the draw against the blitz and they actually ran a 3rd down play past the sticks.

    I dont get UGA playcalling now, they have been passing well most of the game, and then they call two straight run plays to go into 3rd and real long.

    No, quite the opposite of remarkable. He has never beaten a team in the post season that was ranked higher than his team. Wiki better check its data. Beamer is 8-10 in bowl games.

    Second half has been a beauty so far. Hope they keep up with the second half offensive style.

    They have done a good job of exploiting the safeties with the tight ends.
