After an impressive 187 yard outing, Carlos Brown now leads the Wolverines in rushing with 247 yards on 27 carries. "It feels good to be healthy," Brown said. "I didn't know how much work I'd get, but I worked hard every day in practice to prepare. I feel like I played OK. I could have done better. I give a lot of credit to the offensive line. They created big holes."

Brown wasn't always a lock to stay a Wolverine, waiting for two years behind Mike Hart and battling through injuries last year as well. "Going into my sophomore year I thought about transferring," Brown said. "Coach Carr and I had a series of conversations. We chatted every day. Coach Carr said 'patience is a virtue' and my heart was here."

Rich Rodriguez is glad he stayed. "I feel good for Carlos," Coach Rodriguez said. "He's not been healthy his first three years and now he's healthy. He's running well, blocking and he's one of the best guys out of the backfield catching the ball."
