Myrna Irons wasn't surprised that her son, Jarrett, didn't head for the NFL as fast as he could get there. And that could have been pretty fast. He had a degree in sports management from Michigan, had been an all-Big Ten linebacker and had nothing to prove in one more season in Ann Arbor. He was expected to be drafted in the middle of the first round and probably knew as much about what it takes to play in the NFL as anyone available in college football.

When push came to shove Friday night, Michigan was a powerful force in the Thrifty Car Rental Holiday Bowl. The Wolverines pushed and shoved Colorado State across the field and probably out of the top 10 with a 24-14 victory before 59,453 at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium. No. 20 Michigan (8-4) finished third in the Big Ten but on top of the No. 10 Rams with a strong-arm defense led by linebackers Matt Dyson and Jarrett Irons and a bruising defensive line that held like a steel curtain.

MICHIGAN (1-0) at COLORADO (2-0) * KICKOFF: Saturday, 12:30 p.m., pay-per-view. * STORY LINE: It was Sept. 24, 1994, at Ann Arbor, Mich. The play was called "Jets formation, rocket left." With his team trailing, 26-21, Colorado quarterback Kordell Stewart heaved a desperation pass as the clock struck 0:00. The pass traveled 74 yards in the air and, somehow, landed in the arms of Michael Westbrook for a touchdown that gave the Buffaloes a 27-26 victory.

Joe Paterno's glasses are almost as thick as the distance that separated his Penn State team from a go-ahead touchdown against Michigan on Saturday. All the Nittany Lions had to do was pinch an inch out of the Wolverine defense and a fourth-quarter lead would have been theirs. An inch, maybe two. Any closer and the nub of the ball would have kissed the end zone. It didn't happen.

Danny Wuerffel might end up being the first player to lose the Heisman Trophy in the off-season. The Florida quarterback left the Downtown Athletic Club last December as the third-leading vote-getter behind winner Eddie George of Ohio State and runner-up Tommie Frazier of Nebraska. Considering George and Frazier were seniors, you figure Wuerffel returns as the man to beat. Didn't happen.
