On Saturday night, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III was awarded the 77th annual Heisman Trophy. Griffin’s win was an historical anomaly, and there were a number of unique factors which led to Griffin being the ultimate winner of the award.
My purpose is not to say whether or not Griffin was the most deserving player. I am attempting to show why Griffin’s win was a once in a generation type of event.
Michigan fans should be proud that the maize and blue won this afternoon, but Ohio State took this game to the wire. I think the way Ohio State battled throughout today’s game is commendable. It was a good, hard fought football game.
At times during today’s game, Michigan seemed on the verge of pulling ahead and taking total control of this game. At other points, the two offenses slugged it out like two heavyweight boxers.
Michigan had scored. I thought that was all she wrote, as it was late in the fourth quarter, and the Wolverines had just capped off an impressive drive. But the call would end up being reversed. The Michigan runner just shy of the goal line.
Michigan fans are chomping at the bit for tomorrow’s home game against Ohio State. The time seems right for Michigan to finally take the archival Buckeyes down for the first time since 2003.
2003! Facebook didn’t exist yet and George W. Bush was still in his first term as president.
