The Appalachian Effect in N.C.A.A. Football
Remember when the Michigan Wolverines kicked off their football season last year with a loss to Appalachian State University?
Some people called it the biggest upset in college football history.
Appalachian, meanwhile, is hoping to start the ’08 season even more outrageously than last year: against the defending national champs L.S.U. It should not be forgotten that Appalachian has won the past three national championships at its level.
