    2012 Wolverine Report

    #2 Florida State: 31
    #6 Michigan: 10

    The Wolverines welcomed Coach Drunken and his Seminoles to Ann Arbor to kick off the 2012 campaign. It was not a night to remember for UM fans. FSU jumped out to an early lead but UM fought back, making it 14-10 in the 3rd quarter. It was all downhill from there. Florida State went back up by two scores and then the interception monster showed up. Tate Forcier threw 3 picks, including 1 that was returned for a pick six. The Wolverines just could not get the Noles offense off the field all day and a slew of stupid penalties proved costly. It was just another case of the slow start syndrome for Michigan. We need to get our act together in a hurry or this season will be lost with consecutive road games against Nebraska and NC State.

    AWFUL

    Michigan @ Nebraska

    #13 Michigan: 31
    #14 Nebraska: 28

    Two perennial powerhouses came together yesterday in Lincoln for what turned out to be quite the battle. The visiting Wolverines came into this 0-1 after a 31-10 drubbing by FSU last week, while the Cornhuskers narrowly escaped Southern Miss's upset bid in week 1.

    Nebraska got the ball first and marched right down the field for an easy score. Forcier and the Wolverines countered that with a very impressive TD drive of their own. The two teams would continue to go back and forth throughout the 1st half. UM took its first lead late in the half but Nebraska came right back 20 seconds later with a quick strike 54 yd TD pass to make it 21 all at the half.

    Michigan came out and took care of business in the second half. The Forcier-led offense was effective and the D really stepped up and did a great job of stopping Nebraska. UM was up 31-21 when a late TD pulled the Cornhuskers to within three, but they never got the ball back as UM held on for the hard fought victory.

    Up next Coach Hood and the Wolverines take their show to the east coast to take on Coach TRude and his NC State Wolfpack.

    Michigan vs. NC State

    #10 Michigan: 27
    NC State: 3

    The Wolverines took on the Wolfpack late last night and came away victorious. Coach TRude doesn't have the most talent but he is doing as best he can with the talent he has, the Pack will be back. Sorry for no highlites, I went to bed right after the end of the game.

    Michigan needed to come out and take control from the start, and that's exactly what they did. Forcier was on all night and started off the scoring with a 16 yard TD scamper, which Michigan then followed up with a FG to go up 10-0. NC State would add a FG late in the first but that would be their only score of the night as the Wolverine Defense was stout. They got plenty of pressure on the NC State QB and forced some bad passes. It was a very encouraging night for a unit that had struggled in the year's first two games.

    The offense did not leave Coach Hood nearly as pleased as the defense. Yes they put up 27 points but we stalled inside the 30 on a number of occasions and just did not play close to our potential as a unit. The o-line really needed to move more bodies around. The biggest bright spot for the unit was the play of the QB's. Forcier was very effective all night on the ground and thru the air, and when he was knocked out for a play, Denard Robinson came in and caught the NCST D off guard with a 38 yard fly TD pass to JeRon Stokes.

    The Wolverines are now 2-1 and appear set to get on a big winning streak. Everyone is healthy and is preparing to take on the Redhawks of Miami of Ohio.

    Top Performers
    MICH QB T.Forcier: 10-14 161 yds 1 TD 1 INT, 19 att 105 yds 1 TD
    MICH WR R.Roundtree: 4 rec 70 yds

    Miami University vs. Michigan

    Miami(OH): 13
    #9 Michigan: 45

    Michigan took on Miami(OH) earlier today and took care of business handily for the second straight week. The Wolverines never let the Redhawks have any hope of winning. Tate Forcier had a 69 yd TD rush on the first play from scrimmage and the rout was on. UM would add a FG on their next possession. The defense did not allow a first down in the first quarter, and on the second punt Terrence Robinson made a few guys miss and took it 87 yards to the house. The Wolverines would not let up at all, the ground game was working wonders. The defense remained stout throughout, one of Miami's scores came against the reserves.

    It was a good game for the Wolverines, who had some recruits in the stands. The passing game was non-existent but it was not necessary, the defense made some real nice plays and it was an overall good way to enter conference play. Up next my boys take on Indiana.

    This game unfortunately had to be simmed since my PS3 was malfunctioning. Luckily for me my players took care of the Hoosiers without me and only 1 player, DE Craig Roh, was lost to injury, and that's only for 1 week. Tate Forcier and Vincent Smith shined in the SIM. Up next for UM is the Iowa Hawkeyes.

    Michigan vs. Iowa

    #5 Michigan: 24
    Iowa: 17

    The Iowa Hawkeyes are 1 of the better CPU teams in this OD and they always play me tough. Eariler today was nothing new.

    The Wolverines went into Iowa City looking to keep their title hopes alive and that’s would they would accomplish. UM received and went right down the field for the game’s first TD. Iowa came right back with a TD drive of their own. Both defenses got a tad stingy after that as only UM was able to score the remainder of the half, a 7 yd TD scamper by Teric Jones.

    The Hawkeyes did not go away. They stuck around in the second half and had a chance to pull even late. UM was running down the clock while up 7 but Teric Jones coughed up the ball and it was scooped up by a Hawkeye defender. Iowa picked up two first downs but eventually the Wolverines put the clamps on and sealed the victory.

    Tate Forcier had another effective game and all of the running backs played well. One thing to be concerned about after this one was our tackling. We missed tons of tackles, It was just sloppy by our D. Up next we head north for our first ever venture into Minnesota’s new stadium.

    Michigan vs. Minnesota

    I got caught up in some family stuff and was not home to post a summary for my game against the Gophers. Unfortunately we had to go back a few weeks once again so all the stats were lost. What I can say about this game is this...

    Michigan came out and kicked the living shit out of the Gophers. Up and down the field we pounced on them and embarrassed their school. We scored on our first 2 plays from scrimmage and never ever looked back. Forcier was over 100 yds rushing three minutes into the 1st quarter. It was one of the most dominant and most encouraging performances my team has had in the history of this OD. The Wolverines are now clicking on all cylinders as we head home to take on the Fighting Illini, a school that has given us trouble in the past.

    Notre Dame vs. Michigan

    #2 Notre Dame: 30
    #5 Michigan: 33

    FINAL IN OT

    Another Michigan-Notre Dame game, another epic OT thriller. The 2nd ranked Irish entered Ann Arbor hoping to keep their undefeated title hopes alive, but the Wolverines had title aspirations of their own to keep intact.

    Michigan started the game off with a 3 n out, followed by a TD drive by Notre Dame, it looked like it could be a repeat of last year’s 31-3 drubbing. However the Wolverines had a bit more bite on this day than in their last game against the Irish. UM got on the board with a FG early on in the second quarter and scored again a minute later after an INT. A big pass play by ND set up Jonas Gray for a TD less than a minute after that. Teric Jones would score his 2nd TD of the day with a minute left in the half, 17-14 Mich at the break.

    Notre Dame would receive to start the 2nd half but the Wolverine D stepped up to the plate and shut them down. Teric Jones took a pitch 59 yards to the house for his 3rd TD of the day on UM’s ensuing possession. The Irish answered right back and had the game tied heading into the final quarter.

    It was a nerve-wracking 4th qtr for all involved. ND took the league with 3 minutes left on a 48 yard FG. Coach Hood got his Wolverines down the field and then went conservative with his play-calling, a move that almost cost them the game. A 45 yard FG by Justin Jackson tied it up and sent the game into OT. 27-27

    ND went on offense first, and it looked like they would put up a touchdown until a timely sack on 3rd and 4 by NT Will Campbell forced a field goal. Michigan then took the ball and worked it down to the 4. Tate Forcier then took off to the right on a quick option play and went into the endzone untouched for the winning score.

    Another classic between these 2 rivals, and quite possibly the game of the year. The Wolverines now head to East Lansing to take on the rival MSU Spartans.

    The Wolverines whooped some Wildcat booty in this one. The offense methodically torched the NU defense. Tate Forcier had another very effective game to add to hi salready illustrious career. Strong running by Vincent Smith and Teric Jones also added to the ground attack. The defense was phenomenal, as the scoreboard would suggest. NU could not get either a passing game or a ground game going, thanks in part to the efforts of the UM linebacking corps. The group of Hawthorne, Pearson, Gilmore, and Wesley has been great all year and this was perhaps their best performance

    Ohio State vs. Michigan

    #13 Ohio State: 28
    #3 Michigan: 31

    The Wolverines and Buckeyes met once again yesterday in the most recent chapter in sport’s greatest rivalry. The Wolverines would wrap up an outright Big 10 title and keep their BCS title hopes alive with a win, whereas the Buckeyes would get a share of the conference title with a W. It was a hard fought battle but in the end Coach Hood and his Maize n Blue would prevail.

    The Wolverines got the ball to start, and after recovering 2 of their own fumbles were able to punch it in for a score. OSU came right back with a TD of their own. The next few possessions belonged to the defenses as neither offense did much. OSU missed a FG with 2 mi left in the half, but UM gave them the ball right back after a poor pitch from Tate Forcier. OSU scored a TD, but there was enough time left on the board for Michigan to go down the field, setting up a FG by Justin Jackson to make it 14-13 OSU at the half.

    The OSU backfield was the story of the 2nd half. RB Carlos Hyde was phenomenal most of the game, but struggled when both the 1st and 2nd string QB’s went down with injuries. Hyde had been bashing the UM D all day, but he made the pivotal play of the game late in the 3rd. OSU was up 21-13 and driving to go up 2 scores, but Hyde coughed it up and senior AA SS Brandon Smith scooped and took it 54 yards for the score. A converted 2-point attempt tied it up heading into the 4th.

    Both teams exchanged TD’s on their first drives of the final quarter. The Wolverine D then stopped the Bucks, and a 12 yard punt set up Michigan at their own 43 with around 2:30 remaining. Forcier then lad a methodical drive which set up the game winning 43 yard FG with 25 seconds remaining.

    The Buckeyes had UM on the ropes twice in this one, but Forcier n Co. found a way to eake this one out. The win sealed Coach Hood’s first conference title and was just another example of Tate Forcier’s ability to step up when needed. There’s no other way to put it, the kid is just as clutch as anyone.

    Rose Bowl

    #4 Michigan: 35
    #9 Arizona: 10

    Tate Forcier has had an illustrious career at UM, but one thing he had yet to accomplish was win a Rose Bowl. He came just short of doing that his freshmen year as USC prevailed in OT, but things were a bit different this time around.

    Terrence Robinson set the tone right away as he took the opening kickoff to the ARZ 25. Forcier and Co. would punch it in for a quick score to take the early lead. The Wildcats put up a fight, WR Adam Hall made some nice grabs during the game, and his efforts on the opening drive led to a FG. The Wolverines would take over from that point on. Forcier, Vincent Smith, and Teric Jones ran effectively, and their play along with a stout defense had UM up 21-3 at the half.

    Arizona received to start the 2nd half but disaster struck on their first play. Senior NT Will Campbell forced a fumble which was recovered by senior and 4 year starting SS Brandon Smith. Forcier would score his final career TD on the ensuing drive. From that point on it was a ball control game for UM, as they would prevail 35-10.

    It was a bittersweet moment for Coach Hood. The Wolverines had just won their 12th straight game in a season in which they won the Big Ten and the Rose Bowl. However, UM is losing many key players who have made an impact all 4 years of this OD. Forcier has started every game in this OD for me and Brandon Smith also started all 4 years. Will Campbell, Pat Omameh, and Terrence Robinson also all made impacts all 4 years. It was a fun ride with these guys, but it’s time for new stars to step up and lead the program. On a side note, Forcier finished his career with a record of 42-10, a mark that likely will never be broken at UM.

    Thats the toughest part of NCAA dynasties, losing your star players, especially QBs. Always hard finding a replacement. Do you still have Denard Robinson? or did he transfer out.
