I know there are a lot of people opposed to having FCS teams on our schedule. I was one of them until today. This was the most fun I have ever had watching Michigan. Don't get me wrong, there have been lots of exciting games, but this one was like playing Madden football with the All-Star team vs. the Lions.
I, for one, would love to have an FCS team on our schedule midseason every year. Get a 21 point lead and then let your 5th-string RS Freshman running back get a 50 yard TD run. I think the guys on the radio said that there were 6 Michigan players who scored their first touchdowns of their careers today. I think it is the best thing in the world for those players and their families to have that.
On top of that, Tate threw two passes today and then sat, so he should be ready to go next week. Minor and Brown sat, they should be ready to go. Denard showed he can hit a receiver downfield when there are no safeties. We showed that we have 6 running backs today who are all capable of breaking big plays for TDs at any point this season.
Overall, I think this game was exactly what this team needed. It pulled the team even closer together than what they were and gave the starters some much needed rest midway through the season. I can only hope that we can have a game like this every year.
