Farewell, Little Brown Jug...


My Michigan Wolverines lost to the Golden Gophers of Minnesota 23-20 on a last-second field goal to give up possession of The Little Brown Jug for the first time since 1986 (see this excellent Flickr photostream by Boston Fan in Michigan).  Geez. 

With 3 losses and a 3-3 record (2-2 Big Ten), the hopes of locking-down the conference title are bleak (although Ohio State did drop a game to a very impressive Penn State squad, and Northwestern shocked Wisconsin), and it's probably safe to say the Rose Bowl's out of the picture, too.  The best we can hope for now is to win out the remaining 5 games...including the Buckeyes at the Big House for the season finale.

Go Blue.
