20 Years Ago Today: The Miracle At Michigan



20 years ago today the hearts of Michigan faithful in the Big House were stomped in stunning fashion as Colorado's Kordell Stewart completed the improbably Hail Mary to Michael Westbrook as time expired.  I remember watching this game vividly.  I was 15 at the time and as a Notre Dame fan I always rooted for Michigan to lose no matter what.  When the Colorado Buffaloes traveled to Ann Arbor I thought they would win the game rather easily.  This was back when Colorado football was good and Kordell Stewart was a legit Heisman Trophy candidate.  They needed the miracle play and for them good fortune was there with the tip.  Still brings chills to my spine listening to legendary commentator Keith Jackson do the play by play.  "Only despair for the Maize and Blue!"
