    Wrong Foot

    The University of Michigan failed to start the season off with a bang by losing to UConn 49-44. The Michigan defense was unable to stop the Connecticut offense all day. Uconn QB Zach Frazer disected the young Michigan secondary by going 25-39 for 363 yards, 4 TDs, and 1 INT. The UConn rushing attack was brilliant as well, running for over 7.5 yards per carry. There is major work to be done by the Michigan D if they intend of turning around last years 5-7 season.

    The Michigan offense, while looking dangerous at times, turned the ball over 3 times, adding to their difficulty in making a comeback. Soph QB Denard Robinson powered the Wolverine attack with 253 yards passing and 115 yards rushing and 2 total TDs. U of M had plenty of opportunity to win this game, but shot themselves in the foot each time. With about 1:30 to play, in an attempt to move the chains and keep the clock moving, Frazier threw a sideline pattern that went thre the hands of Michigan DB JT Floyd. Had Floyd made the interception, the game would have been over.

    Next Week Michigan travels to Notre Dame.

    Did Denard get hurt or did you just decide to put Forcier in for a play for whatever reason?

    Denard Hurt, Christ Near Perfect

    Denard Robinson was injured for the 2nd straight week in the 1st Quarter. This was only the beginning of the pain for Michigan vs Notre Dame. Dayne Christ made the Michigan defense look foolish by going 31-40 for 486 yards, 5 TDs and 0 INTs. The Notre Dame defense was also stiff in intercepting Tate Forcier 4 times, two in the end zone. Michigan will need to go back to the drawing board as the running game again was non-existant and Denard was injured trying to move the chains.

    Michigan Finally Wins, Lose Shoelace for 10 Weeks

    Denard goes down in the third quarter after rolling up 250 yards passing and 103 yards rushing with 2 TDs and 1 INT. Tate Forcier came in to finish off the Hoosiers with a clean 7-11 for 146 and 4 Total TDs. The game was much close than the score would indicate as the Hoosiers bombed the Michigan secondary for 430 yards and 2 TDs.

    "Ok, guys. We've won two games in a row. If we win tonight, its called a winning streak. IT HAS HAPPENED BEFORE." -Lou Brown

    Michigan wins big vs the 4-1 Spartans. Jumping out 24-0 at halftime was a unique situation for this year's Wolverines. Although the Michigan offense was not highly efficient, they won the turnover battle vs Michigan St 4-0. JB Fitzgerald was awarded the game ball for forcing two fumbles on the day.

    Next Week vs Iowa

    Season in Jeopardy

    Michigan drops another to fall to 2-4 on the season and with a tough road ahead, a bowl game is in doubt. The defense again was destroyed in giving up 627 total yards. Iowa QB Ricky Stanzi went 25-38 for 382 yards and 4 TDs and 1 INT. Michigan missed two field goals in OT to leave the door open for Iowa to finish off a comeback after being down 24-14 at halftime.

    Next Week vs Florida.

    Michigan Holds On

    Michigan tops Florida 24-21 and does it with defense and running the ball. Michigan RB Michael Shaw led the charge with 115 yards and a TD on 26 carries. The defense held Florida QB John Brantley and dangerous RB Jeff Demps in check most of the day. Both Brantlley and Demps left the game due to injury. This brings Michigan to 3-4 on the season and bowl hopes are still alive.

    Next Week vs #3 Penn St.

    Doom and Gloom.

    Tate Forcier goes down after a perfect 4-4 and a TD opening drive and leaves Michigan with Freshman CB(!) Courtney Avery as the best passer on the roster. Devin Gardner has been redshirted and this is the situation that Michigan was hoping wouldn't happen. Denard down, Tate down, Devin redshirted. The gamble to keep Gardener a 5th year may result in Michigan missing out on the bowl season for the third straight year. Coach Rich is under fire from the boosters and the media. The wolverines will need to win out to be Bowl eligible, and that includes games vs Wisconsin and #1 Ohio State on the horizon.

    Not Good.
