Tim and Susie came around noon for burgers at the apartment. Dick cooked on the grill, Susie brought tasty blondie brownies, and everything was yummy. We had a great time talking about everything from geo-caching to bathroom hardware! Left for the game around 2 p.m., not really knowing what to expect, but ready for anything! Literally!
The game turned out to be as perfect as the day. Michigan won easily, and I had forgotten how much fun it is to win! The colors seemed so vivid today - everything stood out - especially the student section. It was "maize out" day, and they were all wearing yellow, and had yellow shakos, and it was a brilliant sight. I hope that Tim and Susie enjoyed it all as much as we did!
Defense Dominates as Football Crushes Notre Dame
Powered by Shawn Crable's five tackles for loss Saturday, Sept. 15, the U-M football team blanked Notre Dame, 38-0, in Michigan Stadium. Crable and the defense dominated early, forcing three first-half Irish turnovers to give freshman QB Ryan Mallett -- in his first collegiate start -- and the U-M offense good field position all afternoon. Mallett capitalized, leading Michigan to four first-half touchdowns, including two by Michael Hart -- who racked up 187 rushing yards -- and TD grabs by Adrian Arrington and Greg Mathews.
Afterwards we had pizza back at the apt., and had an afterglow review of the game. It was a fine, fine day.
