At one crucial point late in the 4th quarter (can't remember exactly what drive), when the whole stadium was chanting to '7 Nation Army' and pumping the maize pom-poms in unison, my brother turned to face the crowd (we were 3rd row endzone). He looked up, looked to both sides, then looked forward again. He said, "this is what college football is about", then opened his arms and closed his eyes to just take in and embrace the moment. I'll never forget it.
"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
