After two huge back to back wins Michigan after suffering that dreaded 3-9 2008 campaign, Michigan is ranked in the Top 25 for the first time since 2007. Feels like forever for Michigan fans after last season but it's finally great to see a winning Wolverine team emerging early on in the year. With a 2-0 record so far under Rodriguez's belt the Wolverines are deffinetly pumped with pride, emotion and of course momentum. This weekend at 12 noon the Wolverines will play host to the Eastern Michigan Eagles who last year also had a miserable record of 2-10 much worse than that of Michigan in 2008. But after a close loss to Northwestern on Saturday the Eagles might be showing some improvement or just exploited the Wildcats weak spots. Anyway you slice it Michigan will have to play just as good as they did against Notre Dame two days ago to keep both their non-conference streak alive and their overall record so far undefeated.
Now that Michigan is in the Top 25, expectations will have now heightened for the Wolverines as many are expecting a blow out game for Michigan this Saturday in the Big House which will be Michigan's 3rd home game. With the Wolverines being favored to win it could be very bad karma prematuring victory 6 days before the game. Upsets can happen and in the case of 20th ranked BYU against 3rd Oklahoma a week ago we are all aware of what can happen in a college football game. But in my opinion seeing Michigan ranked is a great thing. We have waited so long to see Michigan in the top 25, getting awesome positive media attention from ESPN and having a better future in the recruiting process for 2010. In my opinion being ranked 25th feels awesome and hopefully that number will continue to climb as the season moves along!
