    The trip to Ann Arbor was my 50th birthday present from my wife. I'll never forget it. As the announcer says, "ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!"

    Appsolutely the best credit card debt I've ever invested in!!! Did anyone else notice how fast AE got down the field on DJ's first TD catch and run? He had to start running as soon as he threw it!

    The high's and low's of that game were unbelievable. From having the lead at half to losing it in the 2nd half. AE throwing his last INT after their go-ahead TD…only to have BQuick block their 1st FG attempt. The drive down the field to the 5 yard line with 30 seconds to go. Rauch hitting the go-ahead FG with to much time. Giving up the big play to Manningham (single coverage???) only to have Lynch bust through the line and block the winning FG to forever brand the block 'A' into the minds of college football fans everywhere.

    IMO the unsung hero of the game was KR who rushed for 88 yards on the ground which kept their D honest. He had some good runs making people miss and bouncing off tackles. I only wish he could have found paydirt in that game.

    I was lucky enough to witness the greatest upset in sports history, in person, along with my Dad and brother. What was great after the game was the way all the App faithful that attended the game took over downtown Ann Arbor that night.

    Go App!

    I was there! I saw grown men cry. I kissed my buddy, on the lips. I danced with a lady I didn't know. I stayed in the stadium until it was almost empty.

    What a great day!

    Greatest road trip ever! We didn't sit in the ASU section – I got tix from a Michigan alum who didn't want to go. We were surrounded by Wolverines, but were treated fanatstic by everyone we met! That made it even more fun.

    Never will forget playing hi hi yikas way to fast with the band, grabbing Kevin Richardson at the of the game and hugging him. Marching through the tunnel ready to see my Apps win.

    Def. Best day ever!

    My wife and I were having a wedding shower or we would have been there! … LOVE YOU HONEY! Ya we were sitting in Chilhowie, VA and listening to the game on Sirius Radio. Everyone was kinda upset that we were not attentive to the shower but later that night and when they woke up the next morning they realized just what had happened! 😉

    I was laughed at when I went to a bar in Wilmington to ask if there was any chance they could get the game on tv.

    Went home and listened to it on the radio, until the 4th quarter and a few stations were then carrying it.

    Ranks as one of the greatest days in my life.

    One of the greatest and proudest days of my life. Thankfully I picked up the DVD set that has this game and the Under The Lights special on it, it will be playing throughout the day.

    Oh, I still can't believe that happened… I don't care what anyone says… That WAS a good Michigan team until we beat them… Thanks AppFan… Don't ever let us forget (unless we beat Florida)…

    Can't believe it has been 3 years since I sat on the sidelines with the band and watched my Mountaineers beat Michigan. The whole day was just amazing. Marching through the tunnel was amazing by itself, let along actually beating them!

    GO APP!!!!

    Was in Ann Arbor that day for the game with two friends. Sat on the Michigan side surrounded by their "old money" fans. I do have to say we were treated very well. After the game we walked into town and had a great meal. Took a cab back to the hotel and sat in the bar until 2am watching the highlights being played over and over. Man – it will never get any better than that day.

    OK, big whoop. It's over. Now put on your game faces–it's all about Saturday in Chattanooga now.

    I'll echo what many of you have said… just still chilling to this day. It's amazing that we won that game considering we turned the ball over with around 4 minutes to go and somehow had enough time to stop them, drive down the field, kick a FG, and then hold them from winning it in the end.

    I was there live and it is one emotional roller coaster ride I will never forget as long as I live.

    In Raleigh, at a bar, Ohio State Fan Club meeting place. Started on a small TV in the corner, ended on all the projection screens, with me yelling and not knowing what to do but start calling folks. Lost a car flag peeling out of parking lot.

    I have a co-worker whose brother played at Michigan and is now a starting NFL player. 3 years ago I sent him as many emails about this game as possible rubbing it in and as fate would have it, 3 years later we're at a meeting together for the anniversary. It was great being able to remind him once again about the "All Time Upset"!

    ….and don't forget that Michigan upset FLORIDA (Urban Meyer) in Orlando later that season in the Citrus/Capital One Bowl – Lloyd Carr's last game as coach and the last time Big Blue went to a Bowl game. I really believe that the '07 ASU team was at least one of the top 20 in the nation – any level.

    I never really noticed until tim pointed it out above, but on our first score, it sure does look like AE throws about a 10 yard pass, DJ sprints across the field and scores, and AE is waiting for him in the end zone…that's really cool!

    Best Days Ever (not necessarily in order, just kidding)
    Wedding Day.
    Son being born.
    Sept. 1, 2007.

    The festivities (drinking and sausage biscuits) began early for us in Colorado because of the time difference (pregame with David Jackson then the game stated at 10am). The wife and a couple of best buds who all went to App were in attendance.

    The first half was unbelievable and the second was an emotional roller coaster. Following Superman's block, we all ran around hollering and slapping hands. At one point, I drifted out into the front yard and started waving around Old Glory (our App flag).

    Shortly after the win, we drunkenly walked to a bar in town and sang Hi Hi Yikas as we entered. You can imagine the looks on people's faces. Went straight to the bar and lined a celebratory shot of bourbon followed by Colorado microbrews.

    Later, we went up to Copper Mountain for some music festival. Everyone was asking us about our shirts and APP State. I slapped some big Michigan St. fan on the rear. He directed us to a bar close by where the bar keep was a Michigan grad. He congratulated us and bought us a round.

    We finally made it back to house and I passed out on the couch around 8:30pm. What a day, and what an experience. Go NEERS!!!!!
