To quote Ufer: “I just ache, in every ounce of my body!!”

























































OFFENSIVE CHAMPION



DEVIN GARDNER – New 98 has the Heart of a Champion and the way he gutted through the second half on Saturday was very inspiring to say the least. He left it all on the field against the Bucks – much like Old 98 did in 1940.

1 98 Touch

By the way, did you happen to notice how eerily similar his option TD run in the northwest endzone corner was to Ricky Leach’s option TD against OSU in 1977?  Nice!



DEFENSIVE CHAMPION



BEN GEDEON – His play in the first half helped stymie OSU’s over-confident offense and helped make the Buckeyes realize what kind of a dog fight they were in. All of a sudden, Michigan has decent quality depth at linebacker – finally!



SPECIAL TEAMS CHAMPION



ENTIRE KICK TEAM UNIT – Let me tell you right now – when somebody bitch-slaps you in your own house, like OSU did in the second quarter, you BETTER punch back! I don’t condone fighting at all, but once the gloves come off, BRING IT! Kudos for the entire kick team for sending a message to the Buckeyes that the days of UM rolling over are DONE!

1 Hoke Regulates

To me, those ejections were as team galvanizing as scoring 21 points on OSU in the first half. I think Michigan turned a corner with that skirmish and hopefully it continues through to the bowl game next month.

SPARKPLUG



JEREMY GALLON – You do realize that Michigan will have to replace their all-time leader in receptions next year, don’t you?   Did you ever guess that was going to happen when #10, I mean, #21, er, Jeremy Gallon graduates this year? Big plays and big shoes to fill for sure.

2 Gallon snag

Hats off to you, Jeremy 10-Gallon-Hat!



UNIFORM CHAMP



NEW ADIDAS MAIZE & BLUE CLEATS – Adidas has come out with some odd ideas for UM’s uniforms over the past few years – funky socks as well as a particular white bumble-bee jersey that I hope never returns certainly come to mind. But this time they got it right with the new shoes that everyone was wearing on Saturday. They harken back to Billy Taylor’s tricked out Pumas he wore some 40+ years ago. I dig the look!

1 Block M shoes



UFER MAIZE & BLUE

FEDORA FAN



TUNNEL-AREA FANS – I normally frown on those fans who shout down at the bench or at opposing players…but to those fans who got in Hall’s craw..

HALL BIRD …I salute you !
