    Baby Wolverines Lead the Way
    In front of an anxious crowd at the Big House the Michigan Wolverines kicked off the 2009 season with a 52 - 17 victory against Western Michigan. The first touchdown of the season was scored on a16 yard INT return by Sophmore CB Boubacar Cissoko wtih 1:58 remaining in 1st quarter. Michigan dominated the second quarter scoring on three of its four possessions in the quarter. True Freshman Tate Forcier showed that some of the spring game hype was warranted as he connect on a 7 yard pass with SR RB Brandon Minor on the first scoring drive of the 2nd quarter then finished off the quarter with a 62 yard on a QB option play. Sandwiched in between the Forcier highlights was a well orchestrated drive by fellow true freshman Denard Robinson which concluded in a 23 pass to SO WR Martavious Odoms.
    Forcier was forced from the game temporarily during the first drive of the scond half. Robinson took the field and raced through Western Michigan defenders for an 8 yard TD score. When Forcier returned for one drive in the third quarter he threw a perfect play action pass to WR Greg Mathews for a 58 yard touchdown. Forcier finished the game with 119 passing yards on 7 for 10 passing, 8 carries for 171 rushing yards and three total TDs garnering Player of the Game honors. Denard Robinson finished with 85 total yards for two total touchdowns.

    Game Summary

    Irish Silence The Big House

    After a solid all around performance the Michigan Wolverines played host to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Irish wasted no time in wearing out their welcome in front of a shocked Michigan Stadium crowd. The annual rivalry game proved to be more tradition and pageantry, for the Michigan faithful, than competitive football game as Michigan suffered its first loss of the year 38 - 17.

    Notre Dame drove down their possession and scored on a pass on third and goal Clausen to Allen. The key play of the drive was a fake punt on fourth and four and placed the Irish just past midfield into Michigan territory. Clausen the once heralded "savior" of the Notre Dame program was near perfect and dicated the flow of the game in guiding the Irish offense. Clausen finished with four touchdowns and 334 passing yards connecting on 21 of his 29 passes. Inexperience reared its head as true freshman Tate Forcier was sacked twice on the first Wolverine possession of the game. Forcier showed that despite his terrific performance in the season opener against Western Michigan, he still has a lot to learn at the college level. Forcier threw two interceptions completing 51 percent of his passes totaling 258 passing yards and 3 rushing yards.​
    After a tongue lashing on the sidelines the Michigan defense came out for its second series determined to make plays. JR CB Donovan Warren broke a throw into the endzone on third down to set up fourth down on the Michigan 45 yard line. Junior LB Jonas Mouton made a leaping interception to get the ball back for his offensive teammates. But the Irish defense stood strong on third down forcing a second straight punt by All American punter Zultan Mesko. The defense played at a very inconsistent level throughout the entire game.​
    "We have to dominate the line of scrimmage, not be dominated," Coach Knight responded in his post game press conference. "You either impose your will on others or they impose theirs on you. I'm sure you which was the case in the game today. It is a long season and we will put the pieces in place to win games, there are only a few guaranteed jobs on this team." Speculation will intensify over the next few days as to whether Denard Robinson, also a true freshman, will become the starting quarterback or if Forcier will remain the in the role. As Coach Knight stated it is a long season, but only time will tell if it is made to feel longer with more days like this. The Wolverines play host to Central Michigan on September 19th at 12pm in Michigan Stadium.​

    Game Summary

    ASU Turns Up the Heat on Forcier, Wolverines

    The Arizona State defense looked their cross state rivals famed Desert Swarm defense from the Bruschi hey days on route to a home victory against Michigan. The Michigan offense could not muster any consistency and often times appeared to be standing still as the ASU defense applied hit after hit on both Michigan QBs.

    Game Summary

    Wolverines Even Record at 2 - 2

    The Michigan Wolverines can once again call themselves Victors as they shake off two poor performances to defeat the University of Indiana 34 - 10. Michigan QB Tate Forcier looked like the much hyped freshman from the spring game and the opening game win over Western Michigan. "I am still a freshman despite the fact that I enrolled early," Forcier explained to the media after the game. "I am going to make mistakes, I realize that but I cannot let those mistakes put us in a position that makes it near impossible to win." Forcier entered the game facing not only the Indiana defense but countrywide speculation that fellow freshman could take the helm as starting QB if he did not rebound and perform. Coach Big SUge Knight in his post game talk with the media stated, "Tate is our QB, he will continue to develop and be a leader for our offense, he has not performed well in the previous two games but neither has anyone associated with our program. That list starts with and ends with me. We will get better and put the best players on the field for our program not whats the best for your headlines." Coach Knight shook up a few starters for this game, moving Patrick Omameh from right tackle to left tackle and his backup Mark Hyuge to starting right tackle. Dan Ortmann is now listed as the primary backup for both tackle positions. Omameh played well but allowed two sacks to Indiana DE Greg Middleton who had two sacks and five tackles for a loss.

    A Game of Inches
    The saying "a game of inches" could not be any truer on saturday evening in Ann Arbor. The Michigan Wolverines battled back from 27 - 15 defecit late in the fourth quarter to defeat Big Ten foe Purdue. The Boilermaker defense applied constant pressure on Freshman QB Denard Robinson, sacking him seven times and knocking him out of the game in the second quarter. But the Michigan QB came back into the game and showed poise leading the Wolverines tot he game winning touchdown drive on 21 of 35 passing for 335 yards passing and 3 total TDs. Robinson was intercepted in the third quarter as he was hit while attempting a pass.
    While Robinson was impressive it was the spectacular play of Michigan CB Boubacar Cissoko late in the game that sparked the fire and put them in position to mount the comeback. Cissoko intercepted a pass at the Michigan twenty five yard line in the fourth quarter but the Wolverines were unable to put any points on the board. After a Michigan punt, Purdue began to drive the ball and looked as if they were going to put the game away. Cissoko had plans of his own as he picked off Purdue QB J Elliott at the Michigan 6 yard line and raced pass the Boilermakers for a 94 yard pick six. Purdue then went three and out on its next possession. Michigan marched down the field behind the fine passing of Robinson scoring a touchdown on a 1 yard pass to WR Hemingway before getting stopped on the two point conversion attempt. The Michigan faithful sat in stunned silence as the Purdue then took the ball and got down tot he michigan 21 yard line as Purdue kicker C Wiggs lined up for the game winning 38 yard field goal. The crowd erupted as Wigg's kick sliced through the driving snow only to clank off the upright and fall back into the endzone. Coach Suge Knight stated after the game he could not have asked for a better effort from his team in the fourth quarter and also admitted that the Wolverines need to shore up its offensive line play. Coach Knight did not rule a shake up along the line but cautioned the such a move this late in the season would be tricky. The Michigan Wolverines travel to Madison, Wisconsin next week to take on the Badgers before returning home to take on Ohio State in one of the the most bitter rivalries in sports.

    A Game of Inches
    The Michigan Wolverines had hopes of pulling out their second come from behind victory in as many weeks. The Wisconsin Badgers had victorious visions of their own Saturday evening in Madison. The Badgers were twice up by 11 and 12 point margins in the fourth quarter before closing out the Wolverines 35 - 31. For Michigan Freshman Denard Robinson continued rolling up stats setting the Michigan single game record for most passing yards in a game with 432 and three touchdowns also adding a score on the ground.

    Promise Not Enough to Lead Wolverines to Victory
    The Michigan defense was true to the promise it made in the days leading to the Motor City Bowl. Heisman trophy winner Dan LeFevour was knocked around all night by the Michigan pass rush. LeFevour was even knocked out of the game for a few series early in the second half. Despite this pressure the Chippewas were able to leave Detroit as the 2010 Motor City Bowl champions byt he final score of 41 - 36. MVP of the game was Central Michigan RB Bryan Schroeder who tallied 181 total yards and 3 touchdowns. Michigan QB Denard Robinson threw two touchdowns and once again eclipsed the 300 yard mark through the air. Despite the loss Michigan coach Big Suge Knight stated he was proud of the progress his team made in many areas throughout the ups and downs of the season.
