#6 Michigan survives scare from Akron, wins 34-28 "Not sure if I can find many excuses for this one. Yeah we had the game in control throughout but this one was too close for comfort. With tough games versus VT, ND, and an improved Ohio team this was our only "tune up" game. If we play like this versus better talent, we'll be in trouble."
Acceleration: B+ First recruit of the Knight era in the Bluegrass, Sanders looks good with his first step and we need to get him stronger to shed some blockers and then wrap up and make tackles. All in all for the first guy of the first class, good get.
Welcome to 3 star city -- enjoy your stay!
#6 Michigan blanks #23 Virginia Tech 27-0 "This is Michigan football! We put together some very long drives and our defense handled their business. Coach Easy will have his talent in there shortly but right I'm still proud of this win. When you shut out another top tier opponent, it tells a lot about your football team. Right now, we should feel as though we're chasing a title."

UNC loses to a great Northwestern team 35-28 The two plays that lost the game for UNC 1. Down 35-28 with 6 secs left in the 4th quarter, this 4th down play dooms UNC
The play setup was perfect. I saw NT leaving his zone while playing LB alot..i had the perfect setup play... 2. With a few seconds left in the first half this happens..
Might be time for a new controller

Great Game bigtubb_, what a classic finish! I still dont know how I didnt step out of bounds on that botched pitch recovery. I almost stopped running because I thought he stepped out.

Upset?!#6 Michigan trounces #1 Notre Dame 52-35 "Wow! I'm really at a lost of words. I think the only people that thought we would come in here and win were us and our fans. Nobody else gave us much of a chance. We played TEAM BALL and won. Guitterez continues to set records, I'm proud of him. Everyone knows him from his feet but he's leading us through the air. Very proud of this team. Super proud..."
Thin Win!#3 Michigan Holds Off Ohio 34-28 "Another solid win. This win, despite Ohio not being in a AQ conference, is a very solid victory. This win will give us some confidence going into our bye week as we prepare for #1 Penn State. We have some things to correct but I like where we're at at this point in the year."
Michigan Lands Early Commits Jordan doesn't jump out at anyone but his possession ability will be on front street in the slot position -- a place where I think he'll play his entire career. With some other big name WRs rumored to be coming to Ann Arbor, Jordan should benefit the most in an aerial attack.
As I continue to build my 3-4 defense, kids like Williams are who I focus on. Very balanced LB that will open up my blitz packages a little more as I won't be too worried about leaving him one on one as much. Not good enough to do it every down but I think he'll make enough plays to ensure teams don't try him as often as he develops.

BIG ROAD WIN FOR MISS ST 49-26
#1 Penn State knocks off #2 Michigan In OT, 37-34
And I find it complete BS that I fall all the way to #9 after losing to the #1 team by 3. That makes no sense at all -- I can see if I lost by double digits or something.
