Burst of Impetus
* The burst of impetus occurred in the 2nd quarter when Michigan called two timeouts on the same drive to set up a go-ahead touchdown. I thought this was a key moment in the game because in prior weeks, Michigan had not been able to capitalize on opponents' turnovers. Unfortunately, you can't call a timeout before every offensive play. The game is moving too fast for Borges and the offense. Nine days ago, BiSB reminded us of the legal concept called "itsa gonna speek" (or something like that, I never took Latin.) He wrote, "There are some times when the thing that happens is so obviously wrong that the blame speaks for itself." That's where I'm at today.

I think I'll stop now.
