On paper both 95 and 96 should have been comfortable wins.

95 being on the road was at least within the realm of the possible, but the 96 GAME was a mere formality. Should have been a laugher. To this day, that one is THEE most inexplicable loss in my personal fan history. I just turned 2 in 1969, so I wasn't really into that one, but 1996??? That one STILL... sometimes I think it was just a bad dream. And to be clear, UM earned that win with good old heart and grit. That was no fluke. Out-toughed and out-fought us in the 2nd half. When you should be up 21-0 and it's only 9-0? In a rivalry GAME? That should have spelled trouble, but I figured we would bang at least a couple into the endzone in the 2nd half. Wow. Just wow.
