Pain In South Bend

Jake PotterContributor ISeptember 13, 2008

Coach Weis may be feeling the pain of an injured knee, but at least his pain is somewhat lessened by a win. Coach Rodriguez is feeling the pain of six turnovers and a 35-17 loss to Notre Dame. Consecutive turnovers on Michigan's first two possessions led to 14 Notre Dame points and set the tone for the rest of the game. Sam McGuffie led UofM in an attempt to come back with 131 yards rushing and 47 yards receiving including a splendid TD run in which he almost went down after running into one of his teammates. Turnovers in the Red Zone ended any hope of a come back. ND was able to run the ball and recover some fumbles of their own as they ended the game in the victory formation on offense.  Michigan opens their Big Ten schedule next week at the Big House against Wisconsin.
