Northwestern Doth Be Slain!

MMMMmmmm! Very talented you are! Much to learn you have.

Phew! For a while I didn't think they would make it, but Michigan topped the Wildcats today. Because I am fighting a killer bout of seasonal allergies, I did not drink during the game, which made it that much harder to watch. I could have used a few brewskis during those field goal attempts!

Every able man, woman, and child must pile on Mike Hart!

Northwestern was ready for Hart. There wasn't just one man assigned to him. There weren't just two. At all times, there were no less than three defenders assigned to stop Mike Hart from doing his thang. Drive after drive he was attacked by a vicious mob of linebackers and defensive linemen. Sadly, their devious plan worked. Hart didn't carry the team today. Who did?

Chad Henne came back and showed us how a fourth-year starter is supposed to play. He made good reads, tossed a few beauties the entire width of the field, and gave the team a much-needed boost of confidence. Mallett did an admirable job, but until next year, there should be no doubt in anyone's mind that this is Chad's team.

Ahhhh. No matter how ugly the first three quarters were, watching that game felt good at the end.
