Oh it's still a shocker, but the way everything played out Michigan proved to be HIGHLY overrated that season (there's a reason I detest pre-season polls), while ASU probably deserved to be ranked in the FBS top 25 by seasons end. They were just that much better then the rest of FCS that season... and frankly were that much better then most of FBS as well.

JMU, a team that was barely .500 in FCS last year? Beating a BCS-bound VT? That's more of a miracle.

And I'm not trying to take anything away from that ASU win, that ASU team was just THAT good that year.
