Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez was apparently as impressed with UMass' play as the rest of us were. The Wolverines' coach visited the Minutemen's locker room after the game and offered his personal congratulations, via Lisa Byington:
Rodriguez went into umass lockerroom afterward to congratulate them. "I don't do that very often"
UMass gashed his Michigan defense for 439 yards and 37 points, almost pulling another epic upset. But Michigan was able to hold on behind Michael Shaw's three touchdown day, 42-37.
