Another week of entertaining games, including a wake-up call in Ann Arbor. There were definitely some solid finishes with ND-GA and the battle for all the corn and blonde maidens in Iowa the most entertaining. With that…
Non-Michigan: though in a loss, I came away VERY impressed with Phillips (#4) of Western, he of the fumble return and KO return for all of their points. He nearly added a pick to his day. Watching OSU get dismantled for the second time in three games was very enjoyable. The 4th quarter and OT of Iowa – Iowa St. was great theater. However…the one-handed TD catch by GA was the best thing I saw today. Incredible effort.
Michigan: funny how 18- and 19-year olds don’t always bring the same emotion and energy week-to-week. Up 14 early, M looked like it let off the gas because ‘this gonna be easy’. Best thing I saw here was a coachable moment – all within a win – that could prove the difference in keeping this young team’s attention as the games get tougher.
What say you?
