The curse has been lifted and all is as it should be in the world…Michigan is “Michigan” once again.
Though, things got a bit tight at the end there, Michigan managed to prevail and the Wolverines vanquished the once might — and now quite might-less- Ohio State Buckeyes 40-34 in Ann Arbor on Saturday.
Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson was quite efficient managing the Wolverine offense by completed 14 of 17 passes for 167 yards and three touchdowns. He also accounted for two rushing touchdowns on the ground to go with his 170 yards in 20 carries.
Yet, Denard was not alone running the ball as the Michigan offense benefited from another 100+ yard (120) game from the primary back Fitzgerald Toussaint.
Overall the game was quite competitive with both teams making runs and answering scores by their opponents.
In the grand scheme, the victory was a huge, huge win for the Michigan program and Brady Hoke. Winning 10 games and beating the most hated of rivals was first priority when the season started and in his first opportunity, Brady Hoke has truly endeared himself to the fanbase like nothing else could.
The best thing about the Michigan 2011 season is that, although as successful as it was, not every check-box has been marked. Next year, Brady Hoke and Michigan will be able to end another bad streak…the losing to MSU streak. Something forward to look forward to.
Sounds great to me!
