I sat in row 26 and he was in 39 which I didn't realize until I reached my seat that the section was four or five sections away from the OSU supporters. Great I thought I have to put up with these clowns for the game. I was shocked to my stance on how many Buckeye fans attended that day. The enitre top section that was about eight sections away was all scarlet and grey. I shook my head in digust and looked to the person next me and said "what can you do right?" He nodded and the pregame started and ended then it was kickoff time. Osu of course chose to recieve (typical). I sung when "The Victors" played and cheered "Let's Go Blue" when the band started playing it. I loved my view of the field though and I got a perfect view of Pryor's interception and Smith's touchdown. The rest of game play wise was tough to watch. Hearing the mimics when Tate threw those pics lit my fire and soon I started to kind of mimic back. When OSU fans started chanting O-H-I-O I interupted by chanting O-R-E-G-O-N. I can tell you that a lot of people got a kick out of it and yelling "How are those Browns doing?" also caught some glares. I couldn't help it because I like to even the playing field when it comes to insults. At the end of the game I walked up to my friend's section and stayed for "The Victors" then left. I will admit that I really didn't see any of the causes of the fan ejections. I saw someone in my section leave escorted by and usher and officer. He looked drunk by the way he was walking and he was of course a Buckeye. Despite the loss I had a great time. It's always great going to Michigan Stadium and talking with new people about the game and team. It's a treat to go to the Big House anytime you have a chance to go and even if it ends in a loss you can still appreciate the fact your there. I hope to go to more games next year and I'm hoping that I also will have the grades to transfer to the campus and go to the game every Saturday next fall! Untill next year fellow Wolverines I look forward to yet another year of Michigan football! Here's to 2010!
The home opener is over and the Wolverines have won the first home opener since 2006 we've waited 3 years for this moment and it's finally here! 1-0! It's a huge win and great boost for coach Rodriguez and the Wolverines but it's always awesome winning the first game of the year. Michigan deffinetly looked MUCH different from the team we saw against Utah in last year's home opener and this win officially burries the fears and memories of last year's 3-9 season so it looks like 2009 could be an awesome year for Michigan football. Tate Forcier looked awesome in his debeut as a Wolverine and he did not dissapoint. 175 yards in the air two TDs and how about Denard D-ROB Robinson with some impressive carries and a TD for himself on his debeut also. Sheridan also stepped in and unfortunetly threw a pick (was dreading that) but in the end it didn't do any harm as the Michigan defense played like an iron curtain and shut down Hiller and the Broncos offense. I'm really amazed by the athleticism by Tate Forcier this guy is the real deal, he can run, throw, scramble and even throw and run under pressure in the pocket.
But now that the home opener is done it is officially ND week and it will be a tough one this coming saturday Michigan's defense is going to have to play just like they did in this game maybe even a little tighter. Clausen looked pretty damn good today against Nevada but screw the Irish's win this is a Michigan blog and the attention should remain on Michigan. One thing I saw that I didn't like against the Broncos was the penalties on Michigan. Warren has to be a little more careful when it comes to man to man coverage and make sure he is not holding on to the wide reciever. Way too many penalties in the second half on the Wolverines and they have to be much more disciplined against ND this Saturday. But the way they played today really opened my eyes and I truly believe if they can play as aggressive as they did today against Western they can beat ND and pull of the upset. On a lighter side I'm deffinetly more comfortable right now as Michigan fan than a suckeyes fan would! Ready for USC,OSU? They are going to get thrashed. Great game from our Wolverines and looking forward to another big win in the Big House this Saturday! GO BLUE!
BTW: HAPPY LABOR DAY The day when you can tell your boss KISS MY ASS!

You have been practicing for it all summer and you have all dreamed of running under that banner again and charging the field. Well boy's that time is back. That time is now. This is a new year with new chances and the opportunities are endless. We have a clean slate, 2008 is dead and burried 2009 is here and it's our chance to turn everything around and get back on the winning path once again. This program that was established in 1817, gave birth to the most winningest, most successful and most privileged university in the nation. Ledgend's were born here, great moment's were made here and history makers began here. This is our chance to send the world a message that Michigan football is back and ready then it has ever been.

Michigan. When they all scream GO BLUE they are screaming for one team. Michigan. This is our Saturday boys, this is our chance to give this season the start that we want, a home opening victory. Let's give all of these frehsmen, sophmores, juniors and seniors and fans alike a home opening they will never forget.
