I should just be thrilled with the fact that we have a shot at 10 wins and a BCS bowl in the first year of a new coach after coming off the worst 3 year stretch in Michigan history, but I cannot tell you how much I want - no - need to beat Ohio.  Do us proud.

make this win even better. NU got there points off of our mistakes not them dominating for a drive or two.

1. Floyd biff etc. = TD

2. DRob screen yakety = FG. The following drives DRob tucked and ran, YEAH!

3. No catch on KO and botched punt= TD.

We basically played a perfect game less the 3 errors above.

Preemptive strike: Fitz was hurt during the MSU game, which is why he was hardly used.

Now that having been said: FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITZ!!!!!!!!! Is he great, or what? I havent seen a juke move that good out of a UM RB in a long time, and he has the patience of Mike Hart. Call me crazy, but we have a shot against Bama next year.

We're not back until we we perform well next year.  That's when Michigan Football will be back.  But in the meanwhile , Hoke and co. are doing a great job and I can't wait for the game next week.

 

p.s. I'm starting to wonder if the B1G is as down as we all thought it was.  Especially watching Okie State lose to Iowa State.  Bowl games will be interesting to watch

It's been a long time since we won on the week before the Ohio game.  IIRC the last time this happened we were ranked #2 in the country and had an 11-0 record.

How many of us said we'd be happy if Michigan's defense was even average? Today they were excellent against a ranked opponent except for one or two plays.

They showed discipline, they flowed to the ball, they showed passion and guts.

And the offense overcame its few mistakes and scored more than enough points to win.

That's Michigan football! Beat Ohio!

I know it would have been totally meaningless and it was against our second D, but I was so happy we didn't allow that TD at the end.  That was huge.  Holding Nebraska to 17 is a feat, but doing it with such a lead is even more impressive. 

Seeing how well even our second D played made me a lot more hopeful for next year.  QW and BWC looked solid on the line, as did a lot of the other back ups.  They allowed a good chunk of yards, but clamped down when they needed to.
