Michigan Ends Season With Loss at No. 10 Ohio State

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The University of Michigan football team contained No. 10 Ohio State for 30 minutes of football, helping the underdog Wolverines enter the locker room with a manageable 14-7 deficit, but the Buckeyes awoke in the second half, scoring 28 unanswered points in a 42-7 victory Saturday afternoon (Nov. 22) at Ohio Stadium.

Michigan ended the season with 30 turnovers, the most in the Big Ten.
The current coach is quoted as saying that fans who are unhappy should get a life.
Another record broken this year - Michigan lost 5 games at home.

The coach was born and bred in West Virginia. He attended West Virginia University and married a WVU cheerleader. He has coached hither and yon, notably at Tulane, Clemson and WVU. One would think that having the head coaching position at West Virginia would be his dream job. But after coaching there for 7 seasons he was willing to walk away from his alma mater to come to Michigan. That seems odd to me. It tells me that he is a gypsy coach with no true loyalties and will go wherever the grass looks greener.

This coach is saying that since he doesn't have to do bowl game practices, he will have more time to recruit. He may have to have super powers to recruit any young, enthusiastic, hopeful football player to come to Michigan after this most miserable, deplorable and wretched season.
