Michigan Dominates Rutgers

From start to finish, there was no denying Jim Harbaugh’s troops at home against the Scarlet Knights.

For one, and we still don’t know why, the fat-black coach from the MSU game was replaced with a slightly less-fat white hedgehog. Our defense held strong all game, only allowing a touchdown on a kickoff.

After taking the opening drive down and missing a field goal (wind: left), the D quickly returned us the ball. The Wolverines marched down for the touchdown. From there, consistent stops (including keeping red zone opps out of the end zone) provided ample offensive possessions that we utilized with an array of clever plays. By halftime, despite some lame calls, we led 35-16.

There would be no more Scarlet Fever in Harbaugh’s second half. Determined from some gay calls, we took our first possession to the house, even converting a two-point conversion to seemingly run up the score. Gulp. Let’s hope this doesn’t come back to haunt us.

Nope, it did not. Harbaugh checked his ego enough to not allow any second half points. Credit CB Jabrill Peppers, who played offense and special teams, too.

Michigan’s backup relieved Jake Rudock in the 4th, signaling the end of reality. A 49-16 final score helped make up for last year’s loss.

Maybe someday, they’ll re-do the Big”GrabBag” and give every team a chance to compete for the Big Ten Championship.

  • Glasses or No? I watched Jim Harbaugh furiously pace the sidelines with every insane delayed false start penalty right before the second quarter closed, and he made the same adjustment at halftime I did: he threw on the glasses.

  • Wolverines Hold Strong to Defeat Colorado I slept in quite late, yet it was only halftime. I quickly learned Michigan led 24-21 despite trailing 14-0 to begin the game.
