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.

They took the second half possession and soon scored on a deep pass, leading 28-24. That would be the last time we allowed them to score.

Game MVP Jabrill Peppers returned the ensuing kick past midfield. A sideline run gave us the lead back for good. Peppers continued to shine on both defense and special teams. We knocked their QB out of the game and decimated the incumbent.

Peppers took a punt 54-yards to the house to put us up 45-28 for the final score. Our QB was struggling since that initial hit to his shoulder, and the running game plus the defense and special teams equaled a close win against a Colorado team Michigan fans were all too familiar with having upset them…

It’s the tune up you want though before Big Ten play. It’s four quarters of blocking and tackling, best team wins. Any given Saturday/Sunday, right?

  • Extremely Proud of You, Blue Down 20-6 at halftime, and 17-3 early on, it’d have been pretty easy to lay down and let Florida State seize the Orange Bowl for good. Instead, #6 ranked Michigan gave the audience an all-time game, falling one-point short after the referees missed an obvious call to end the game. Michigan gave up several uncharacteristic [...]
  • Michigan Shines in Unfortunate Loss The Wolverines truly outplayed Ohio State in every faze of the game – but some untimely penalties plus turnovers equaled an unfortunate loss. In their 2nd season under Jim Harbaugh, Michigan was ranked in the upper echelon all season. I can’t imagine that either Penn State or Wisconsin, two teams we beat, will hoist the [...]
  • THANK GOD THAT’S OVER OF COURSE it couldn’t be easy. Despite leading 27-10 at halftime, the Spartans came within a score of 2nd ranked Michigan before Heisman Trophy-Candidate Jabrill Peppers returned the 2-point conversion try for the insurmountable lead. Luckily, Mark Dantonio’s ego prevented his team from putting the pressure back on the Wolverines, who were all too familiar [...]
  • 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. At first, they seem so perfect. You can filter life’s choices a little faster, literally see more… but is [...]
