Not too long ago I saw a shirt that had a lined image of the state of Wisconsin. Inside the image it said "WERE COMING FOR YOUR CHEESE!" Color was maize outline on a navy background. I thought it was hilairious but if you are looking for some jokes then this season definitely hasn't been comic relief or comedy for all that goes. It's been a tough road for all of us both the fans and players as the season winds down to it's last few games. Wisconsin and of course Ohio State is all that remains and they are two uneasy games this year. This Saturday in Camp Randal and the other back in the Big House. We hoped that at this point Michigan would be 7-3. Unfortunatley speed bumps in East Lansing, Iowa at home against Penn State, on the road in Illinois and at home in Purdue have made it a difficult position at 5-5. 1-5 in conference play. The odds are obviously not in favor this weekend but that doesn't mean we can't beat the Badgers because we can. Wisconsin is a strange team either they come to play or fall apart. Being 20th ranked though and 4th in the big ten expect them to come out with cannons flying.
To start a good game Michigan needs a good drive up field lead of course by Minor and Forcier. Forcier needs to regain that sense of being comfortable in the pocket once again like he did against Notre Dame. Just drop back and throw don't try to make a massive play if your pressured. Run and pick up the three or four yards then work from there on 2nd down or 3rd down. Sometimes I think he tries to do too much. An opening drive for a TD would be awesome to see and a stop on all 3 downs for the Michigan defense would also spark momentum and give Michigan a good rythem on offense. Wisconsin's got a good offense and players like Grahmn, S. Brown and Van Bergen are really going to have to step up. Mouton is also going to have to put more pressure on that offensive line. If the Wolverines can start off hot and end hot they can win. This is a game where Michigan is going to have to play consistant, clean no turnover football to win. I'm looking forward to a very exciting and good game this Saturday. A win and a bowl game birth would be beautiful. But Michigan needs confidence when they play OSU in two weeks and a road win and knocking off 20th ranked Wisconsin would do just that!
