Lloyd Carr, Military To Be Recognized At Michigan-Nebraska Game

Before Saturday's game between Michigan and Nebraska kicks off, two special events are set to take place. One of them is part "Military Appreciation Day," which will involve the military being honored by fans and there being a pregame card stunt. The other special event will see former Michigan head coach Lloyd Carr be honored.

Additionally, a pregame ceremony will be held to honor retired Michigan head football coach Lloyd Carr (1995-2007), who will be inducted into the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame on Dec. 6.

It will be interesting to see what kind of reception Carr gets because of what was written in Three and Out, the book about the Rich Rodriguez era written by John U. Bacon. In the book, there are a number of things written about Carr's actions before and after Rich Rodriguez was hired, and some of the things he allegedly did (or didn't do, in some cases) make it seem like he played a hand in trying to sabotage Rodriguez's tenure as coach. (Carr declined multiple requests to be interviewed for the book, so his side of the story wasn't shared.)

I would imagine Carr will be cheered, but it wouldn't surprise me if there are some boos as well given what was written in the book. Personally, I am not going to cheer or boo Carr on Saturday. He has done too much for Michigan to be booed, but it's impossible for me to cheer him after reading Three and Out.
