While the Detroit Lions are having a horrible season, the Michigan Wolverines are kicking ass. They’re 7-2 so far this season. Many of their victories were big wins and only a couple were close.
I wish it was a perfect season, but it’s a season I’m happy with. I admit, I was disappointed when they lost their first game to Utah and my faith dropped some. But then they had a solid streak of big wins.
Until the Michigan-Michigan State game.
For several years in a roll, the Spartans have beaten the Wolverines. I had high hopes that this year we would see a Wolverine victory over the Spartans. We have Jim Harbaugh now and he certainly has turned things around since Hoke’s reign ended. I had hoped he would bring us a victory in the Michigan-Michigan State game.
Oh, the Wolverines were ahead by a few points, with just a few seconds left on the clock, and then something went terribly wrong. A field goal attempt went bad, a Spartan defense man got the ball and ran all the way down the field for a touchdown.
It was painful to watch and my spirit died a little. Out of all the games they play, there are two games that I really want to see them win. That’s the game against Michigan State and the game against Ohio State.
I’m not completely over the loss to Michigan State, but I’ll consider this a great season if they win the rest of their games. The last game will be against Ohio State, who are currently undefeated. If the Wolverines can beat the Buckeyes this year, I’ll be very, very happy.
