I don't know what the deal was, but the Wolverines couldn't figure out the running QB all season. They were getting destroyed by MSU's Stanton, before he got hurt, and then OSU's Smith wiped them out, so they shouldn't even have been in the Rose Bowl in the first place. However, having got there, they didn't embarrass themselves a bit...except for that one small item. I think Vince played a fine game, he's an incredible athlete and all, but there was lOUSY tackling on his last two TD runs. Just grab an ankle, guys.
All in all, the Big Ten shut the critics up this year. They were in, or won, every bowl game I saw. I think UM has a good shot to get back to the Rose Bowl next year, if not the national championship game. Sky's the limit, with Hart-Henne. The defense needs to be examined, find out what's up with allowing the long runs.
