Can Taylor Martinez be judged as one of the Cornhuskers' all-time great quarterbacks if he doesn't win a championship of some kind?
For about 25 minutes on Saturday, Michigan remained in prime position to sieze control of the Big Ten Legends division. The Wolverine defense had held Nebraska’s high-powered offense to just seven points and 113 total yards of offense and was marching down the field to take the lead with time running short in the first half. On 2nd-and-7 from the Nebraska 15, Denard Robinson rushed...
Wilbert the Wolverine here—sorry I am late with this—I’ve been out wandering around the U of M Campus today. I can count the students wearing Michigan sweatshirts on one paw.

Under Brady Hoke, Michigan is 15-0 when it scores more than 17 points. That’s all the defense needs to stand its ground and hold off its opponent. This weekend, however, Michigan came up well short and suffered its third loss of the season. All three have been away from the Big House.
