Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
Anybody else at the game thoroughly enjoy the halftime show? For those who weren't there, it consisted of a Michigan themed wizard of oz type deal where Dorothy had Denard's untied shoes and was trying to get back to Ann Arbor to get them to him before the second half. A guy disguised as Brutus the Buckeye was also tackled by a guy dressed up as the Bobcat mascot. There was also a "little brother" reference. I hope it gets posted somewhere because I would love to watch it again.
Oh yeah....the actual game was pretty sweet too.
Edit: Only video I have found of it. Crappy quality, but hey, its something.
The guy that Tate slammed into on the sideline apparently works at ABC 7 Detroit news. He interviewed Tate after the game, and Tate's reaction was priceless. Watch the Video on the linked page. I would embed if I wasn't an idiot. Great, great, amazing game.
This is the day an embattled program finally turned a corner and became bowl eligible.
This is the day an embattled coach gained the time, in career longevity, to see his players and his system grow into a perennial powerhouse.
This is the day an embattled defense showed that, when the game was on the line, they could deliver Michigan a victory.
In 2020, when we are looking back on the Decade of RR, a decade in which championships and trophies will return to Michigan, we will remember that this is the day that made it possible.
Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said he put his arm around Rodriguez as they walked to the embattled coach’s news conference.
“I said, ‘You had a good week, coach,’ and he did,” Brandon recalled. “It’s been a month since we had a win and the (NCAA) situation is over, and I think Rich was to a degree was vindicated. Now, we’re going to a bowl and if we can find ways to win it’ll improve the picture.”

To those who realize that we will be going in a different direction at Head Coach in 15 years after RichRod is done winning all his National Titles and rides off into the sunset, who do you think we should hire?
To the rest of you, I'm sorry that your impending negs failed to deter me from posting this question. Hopefully you guys will come around before too long and see what the rest of us see.
Boldin was back today. He got yanked in the first half after not being able to get anything going and the score at 21-0 Northwestern. McGloin came in and it's 28-21 PSU, with McGloin making some seriously good throws.
