Lloyd Carr is the 3rd winniest coach in Michigan history. He has brought a National Title. And now, he is done. To me, his tenure at Michigan is over. This university is the winniest university in all of college football. Losing to Appalachain State was terrible. Losing immediately after that is worse. And to top it off, both games were in front of 107,000+ fans in the Big House.
After losing the opener to Appalachain State, the Wolverines still had hopes of a Big 10 Title, and possibly a Rose Bowl berth. After losing to Oregon, who came in unranked, those hopes are all but gone. Chad Henne, who has started every game since his freshman season, has to be crushed. Heisman candidate Mike Hart, might not be a candidate anymore. In both games combined this season, Hart has rushed for 314 Yards, and 3 TD's all on 48 carries. He has definately done his part. And it's a damn shame that he is being left out to dry by his defense.
What is happening to college football? For the first time since 1967, Notre Dame, Michigan, Florida State, and Miami are all outside of the Top 25. (Correct me if Im missing a team) Those are some of most prestigous universities in college football history. This is obviously time for the USC's and LSU's to shine. This is a break in the norm that might not last too long. Those universities will bounce back, undoubtedly. There might not ever be another time in history, when some of winniest universities are no where near BCS contention.
And finally, give me your thoughts on Lloyd Carr. Should he stay or should he go?
