"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

I feel a lot better about Hart committing to UM. Thanks Tom.

Those QB designed runs also help set up those WIDE OPEN receivers like Roy Roundtree's TD in the ND game. I think as the season moves on, the RBs will get more carries because that will be the correct read for DRob as defenses put a real emphasis on taking him away. The problem for the future defenses we play, is that Denard will get better and better with more experience running this offense. (Scary huh?) It's really "Pick Your Poison" with Denard because of his improvement in the passing game and the game slowing down for him. We also have to give the o-line tons of credit. They've done a great job so far this year.
As far as a QB like Denard taking too many hits and risking injury - I remember a QB very similar to Denard, playing in the Big10 with far less talent around him, who ran the ball a lot too. I believe he started all 4 years at Indiana. Remember Antwan Randle El? The thing is, Antwan wasn't as fast as Denard. To all my fellow Michigan fans: Enjoy the journey with Denard at QB for the Maize and Blue. We will look back at these games very fondly! Go Blue!

This is such a great story. I'm so happy for Kellen and his entire family. Informing coach of your commitment and then breaking out into the "Victors" sounds like another new tradition in the Michigan family. GO BLUE!
