Michigan Wolverines Football News: Oct. 20, 2008

Even as a big Michigan fan, I've been finding it hard to blog/write about anything concerning Michigan football lately.  I will say though that I enjoyed watching last Saturday's game though. 

After personally watching in the Big House the loss to Illinois (I had high hopes because I was there) and then following a heartbreaking loss to TOLEDO!...I wasn't expecting much against Penn State. 

But watching us hang on for three quarters, I think it was our best game yet, even though we lost and they had 39 unanswered points.  I think it certainly perked up some ears around the Big Ten. 

Hopefully we can get that kind of momentum up and running and maintain it against MSU this coming weekend.
