Found September 23, 2013 on Maize & Blue Nation:
This guy... Thank you MVictors. Taking the high road I can be like everyone else and come on here to write about all of the short-comings of this team the last 2 weeks, but that's not what I'm going to do. It's easy to pile on the criticism of the O-line and Devin's struggles, but I don't see it the same way most folks do. What I've seen the last 2 weeks is a Michigan team that has won, albeit closer than it should've been, two games against what are probably two of the worst teams on the 2013 schedule. But in those wins, this young Michigan squad gained some perspective, and more importantly, some experience. For reasons passing understanding, I never for a second thought Michigan would lose to UConn. Even when the score was 21-7, I didn't think they would lose.

Act 2: Michigan Wolverines Survive @ Huskies

Last week in The Big House, Michigan was ambushed by a way overmatched and historically, well not that good, Akron Zips football team and Blue was very fortunate to have pulled out the 28-24 victory at home. Now, going on the road for the first time in 2013 to face a UConn Huskies team whom by many accounts was also considered to be not that good, left followers of the Maize and...

Michigan football survives another scare, this time at UConn

If you watched Michigan narrowly defeat Akron last week, then you saw more of the same on Saturday against UCONN. The Wolverines made it through their first road test of the season, beating the Huskies 24-21. Despite improving its record to 4-0, Michigan has a lot to work on after the past two performances.

Hokeamaniac.com Cover Shot Week 4: UConn Huskies

Yes the Michigan Wolverines are 4-0 in the young 2013 season and that is the good news. What many Maize and Blue supporters though might not consider such great news is exactly how they got those wins. After a very lopsided 59-9 home victory to start the season against Central Michigan and a convincing 41-30 victory at home over the Irish Under the Lights II (their last scheduled...

Michigan Football news, stats, stars from UConn win

Many people, myself included, expected Michigan would shake the dust off from last week’s closer than expected win and flex their muscle at the expense of the UConn Huskies. Instead the Wolverines turned ball over 4 times and had to scratch and claw their way to a 24-21 victory over Connecticut. The comedy of errors was reaching epic proportions early in the second half as the...

OH HAIL NO! NOT AGAIN.

Local Big Ten Review: To Win, Michigan Must Knock Off Turnovers for Touchdowns

For the Michigan Wolverines, everything looked and felt fine as the team was rolling in a 59-9 win over hapless Central Michigan in the season opener. That day, though, a frustrated trend quietly started. Turnovers, and lots of them, would follow. Despite the lopsided score, the Wolverines gave the ball away three times.
