HEY MATT MILLEN: ARE YOU "DISCOUNTING" THAT MICHIGAN "WIN" OVER MINNESOTA?
Talk about lucky endings to football games, did you see what happened in Minneapolis on Saturday night? The Michigan football team won a game that they really lost, according to the wisdom of Matt Millen.
Millen claimed that Michigan State didn't "really win" against UM two weeks ago, stating that the Spartan victory was "an anomaly", and that MSU actually "had a loss" on their record afterwards. Well, I guess the guy should know, just look at his record with the Detroit Lions, eh?
The Wolverines first "lost" on a touchdown pass with 19 seconds left that was (correctly) overturned after an official review. The ball was placed on the one-foot-line, where any team in America should be able to score with a timeout in hand. A field-goal would have forced overtime, but Minnesota had three or four plays to win the game outright if they just didn't burn up all of the time standing around.
We detailed the end-game in this story earlier today.
Will Matt Millen also describe the Michigan "victory"
over Minnesota as a "loss", or perhaps, "an anomaly"?
Or is it considered okay for UM to GET LUCKY in their wins,
but not okay for MSU to GET FORTUNATE in their victories?
