I just noticed that in the aftermath of the game on Saturday there wasn't an appreciation thread for Brendan Gibbons. Despite his one shaky game at Penn State, Gibbons has been solid for the past two years. Gibbons drilled a 44 yarder on Saturday to extend the game and also made another field goal in 2OT to extend the game, in addition to his two other field goals on the day. Gibbons holds the record at Michigan for the most consecutive Field Goals and PATs made. Gibbons has drastically improved over his four years of playing and is now one of the best kickers in the Big Ten. Brendan Gibbons has improved the happiness of all of us with his many clutch kicks, including on Saturday. Brendan Gibbons, we appreciate you. Go Blue!
At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
