Last Saturday's game stung us all after seeing our Wolverines fall to Sparty again for the second time. I went crazy after Tate forced in an overtime TD to tie it up. But after the interception that marked it over. It was difficult seeing Michigan loose its streak and it's rank and it hurt but not as bad as I expected it. I know it's our second major rival and I know it's a huge game but somehow I saw this problem coming. It's very difficult for a true freshman quarterback to bring a team into a hostile enviornment like Forcier had to do last Saturday in East Lansing. But I was not impressed with our offensive line and wide recievers. Way too many dropped passes and bad blocks. Plus our coverage on Cousins wasn't good either. After the game I thought to myself "can we beat Iowa?" After Iowa's close and loose preformance with Arkansas State only winning 24-21 I saw some holes and gaps in the Iowa defense that if Forcier and the offense can put big points up on we will have a good chance to win. BUT it's an away night game and Tate and the gang with have to play much harder and much more focused if they are going to upset Iowa. So far I'm very impressed with Michigan's season going into the 6th week. 4-1 1-1 not bad. We dropped from the top 25 but a win against Iowa would do wonders and give our guys a huge boost in confidence. Nothing helps better then beating teams in the top 10 or 25 and if Michigan works hard in practice fixing those defensive and offensive line errors then we deffinetly can leave their field 5-1 2-1 GO BLUE
