Good thing we're not playing Cal

Andrew is completely right when he says It should have been Cal, but in all honesty I’m glad we’re not playing Cal. They were a powerhouse team in the Pac-10. There only loss was to the #1 team in the country and as far as I’m concerned they are the #2 team in the country. As a Michigan fan since birth, I always have the utmost confidence that my Wolverines can’t lose, yet I don’t think we could beat Cal. For this reason, I’m happy we are playing Texas.

In response to Justin’s What took so long? I also agree. I’m excited to watch the inaugural game between this two football powerhouses. I just really hope that the Wolverines will have an auspicious beginning and beat the Longhorns.

Sizing up the Longhorns

After reading Andrew blog (which you can read if you click the title), I completely agree that Michigan's toughest task will be defending the Longhorns. I feel that our offense is good enough to score points on Texas, but if we aren't able to stop Cedric Benson we will be doomed. It is also important that we stop Vince Young (the Texas QB) from running the ball. If he is going to bear us he should have to beat us through the air.

Michigan Awards

One of the greatest benefits of being a student at the University is attending the home games. Sadly after next year I will no long have tickets as I will no long be a student at the University. For this reason, I'm glad to see many Wolverines winning awards. This way as I look back at the awards in the future, I can think to myself, "I was there when he won that". David Baas, Braylon Edwards, Marlin Jackson , and Ernest Shazor were among the players recognized. To get a complete list of the player recognized as of December 11 2004, click on the title.

Edwards earns Biletnikoff Award

Michigan's stand out receiver Braylon Edward received Biletnikoff Award on December 9. I'm happy that Edwards received this award, but I feel that he won it by default. That is to say that, Edwards is a good receiver and the best in the nation in my opinion, but he had weak competition. Nevertheless I'm happy to see a Michigan player receive an award.

Michigan gets another QB

Michigan recruits Jason forcer, he is a 6 foot 2, 205 pound CB from San Diego. Unlike our current start Chad hen, forcer is a dual threat. He is a great passer AND runner. This could add another element to misogynist great offense. If you watch pro football you can see that more and more dual threat cab's are in the NAVAL, and I think the trend is continuing at the collegiate level. For this reason I'm happy Michigan got a running CB. To view the MLIVE article click on the title of this article.

Michigan Football Player charged as Flasher

I’m very disappointed to hear about another Michigan football player getting in trouble with the law. On December 7, 2004 redshirt sophomore Larry Harrison was arrested for exposing himself. It is very frustrating to watch a University football get in legal trouble because it brings bad publicity to the entire University. I can only hope that these allegations are false, but either way the University has already received negative exposure (no pun intended). Harrison was a starter, but I feel his potential absence will have little effect on the outcome of the Rose Bowl.

Test Post

Since this is my first post it won't be that exciting. To compensate for my lack-luster post, I included a link to espn. That way you can entertain yourself.
