I have no problem with APP fans reliving the greatest upset of all time. The only one I think that may be been bigger was Buster Douglas over Mike Tyson.

JMUs win over Orange Bowl Champ Virginia Tech was probably more impressive, but you know, no one knows who the crew on the Apollo 12 was.

Pete Conrad, Alan Bean, and Richard Gordon.

Struck by lightning twice during launch. Thankfully the EECOM remembered something called "SCE to AUX" to save the telemetry and power. It was an obscure switch but Alan Bean remembered where it was from a training mission like a year before.

I watched the hell out of From the Earth to the Moon back in the day.

Is Apollo 12 a hip hop group?

Nah that's the guy who beat Rocky, but Rocky then beat him later, but then Mr. T beat him, and I think Mike Tyson beat him before getting beat by Buster Douglass.

This is all connected somehow.

Yea Michigan getting skull drug the following week at home by a mediocre Oregon Duck team isn't relevant I guess.
9-4 with a bowl win is mediocre? Give it up Yeller. You're making a fool of yourself.

Creating a thread touting a signature win from 10 years ago will likely get some spit balls particularly from GS fans. Would I trade GS's for Apps? No and I doubt ULM would trade the Bama win or others. Most of us are tempted to post nice articles written specifically about our schools but resist. The Michigan win we all agree may be worthy of it simply from the hype lavished all over the place. I tend to agree with the earlier post that the hype is over blown. My point is simple. If the 2007 Michigan team that eked out a win against the likes of Eastern Michigan and lost to App and curb stomped by the Ducks at home played the UF team that played for most of the 2013 season it would have been a close game. Never said one was better than the other. Just making the case using some numbers. Smiling a little at first but with all the smart folks bowing up about it I'll step aside.

As most App fans were cheering for the Eagles against the Gators. It was great pub for our schools, conference and division.

Lots of haters here. I think i've seen Doug Flutie's hail mary at least once or twice a season since 1984. You might be seeing or hearing about this game as frequently moving forward. That's what happens when you make history. So hate all you want, but this story will never die.
