Lookingback at highlights and reading everything i can that says were gonna be sweet next year made me realize that the duke game mirrored our season remarkable well. The game started off pretty well with duke just edgin us out before halftime. Then shit got real. Duke stormed out the gate maintaining a double digit lead until we switched to the 1-3-1 and decided we weren't going away. Playing scrappy D with gritmonster's diving for balls and morris and THJ putting fear into the hearts of the blue devils everytime they touched the ball, we got the double digit lead down to two. Unfortunately, like all good things, it had end, with our dreams bouncing off the back iron.
The season started off as well as anyone expected. Beating the teams we were supposed to even culminating in an overtime loss to kansas (Vogrich's missed three at the end of the first half. Then we sucked. We got rocked to start the big ten schedule, starting 1-6 with a complete collapse against indiana. Then we played MSU. Morris and THJ decided they were going to dominate then rest of the team followed suit. Finishing the season 8-3 michingan played their way into the tournament. Then after a dominant effort agianst tennessee we saw the toughest michigan in my lifetime fall to a great duke team.
With our cinderella story gone we can look forward to not sneaking up on anyone next year. After showing the country that we are for real, they know who we are and they know we are coming.
