The Victors: Michigan 31-7 Western Michigan
1-0, Big Ten 0-0
A commanding victory by the valiant Wolverines over a M.A.C. opponent is not supposed to be cause for celebration—until last season we were undefeated against the Mid-American Conference, despite nearly yearly contests—but so traumatic was the '08 season that I joined all my fellow Wolverines in celebrating Saturday's 31-7 triumph like it was the Capital One Bowl win over Tim Tebow and the filthy Gators. 'Twas only one game, and there is yet much more work to be done to restore the glory that is University of Michigan football, but for the first time in a very long time there's more than just faith to backup the unwavering support many of us have had for Rich Rod: In Rod we trust.
Rich Rodriguez is a Michigan man, not by birth or education, but, like Bo before him, by choice. That's what the "reporters" behind the Detroit Free Press's hatchet job, themselves U. of M. grads, failed to see in their blind hatred.
I can't resist one dig at the hapless Nick Sheridan. Do you think Sheridan works for the Free Press? I only ask because it seem as if his goal in life is to destroy the valiant Wolverines.
