Michigan Marching Band Curse Lives On
GREATEST UPSET IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL HISTORY LINKED TO VIOLATION OF “NO STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN” COMMANDMENT
FITSNews – September 2, 2007 – Yesterday, Division I-AA Appalachian State pulled off the greatest upset in college football history by defeating the fifth-ranked Michigan Wolverines 34-32 at the “Big House” in Ann Arbor. The Mountaineers’ win – the first ever by a Division I-AA team against a nationally-ranked Division I-A opponent – may have shocked the world, but not us.
As FITSNews first reported back in January, Michigan suffered a complete and total collapse in the second half of the 2007 Rose Bowl against Southern California just moments after its marching band broke the sacred “No Stairway to Heaven” commandment during the game’s halftime show.
Clearly, the Guitar Gods have not finished extracting their revenge on Big Blue. Appalachian State may indeed have a “championship culture” (the school has won consecutive I-AA national titles) and the spread offense may be the “great equalizer” in college football, but you just can’t play “Stairway to Heaven” and expect to get away with it, people.
Michigan needs to find a live chicken or something … and fast.
