Fun Stuff at 4-0 So Far

Yes, the season is only 4 games old and things will change and get tougher. But before they do, let's review some of the unexpected good stuff. 5 weeks ago who would have thought:

-UM would be 4-0
-UM would be 8th in the country in rushing and 16th in scoring
-UM would be 1st in the Big Ten in rushing and scoring
-Forcier would be getting more good lovin' than Terrelle Pryor and Matt Barkley
-A Michigan team would be 1-3 having lost to the MAC and to ND...and it's not us
-Sweater vest would be getting more heat than Rich Rod
-Our leading rusher is a guy not named Minor
-Carlos Brown would have more yards rushing than Evan Royster
-Our quarterbacks would have more rushing TDs than games played
-We would go 4 games without fumbling a kick/punt
-Forcier would only have 2 pics - 1 arguably not his fault and would be leading the Big Ten in "points responsible for"

I think some of us would have predicted some of these things but hard to imagine all these things falling our way just a mere 5 weeks ago. So...for the moment...I'm just soaking it in and basking in the glow (and trying not to think about defense).

Life is good, the smell of autumn leaves hangs in the windy September air, and Michigan football is, once again, Michigan football.

Although it's still early in the schedule, last year has made this year so enjoyable.

4 weeks from now we are going to be shocked, saying, "I can believe we have only give up 16pts per game the last 4 weeks" It may be far fetched, but so was the above summary. One can hope...

Suffering through a season like last year makes me enjoy this year a lot more. I never thought I'd celebrate a victory over a MAC team or Indiana.

Victories over MSU and OSU would guarantee that it was a successful season, no matter what the record turns out to be.
