ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- After a closely-contested first half, the No. 25-ranked University of Michigan football team posted a 21-0 second-half scoring advantage to defeat Eastern Michigan, 45-17, on Saturday (Sept. 19) at Michigan Stadium. Michigan's strong running game paved the way in the victory, U-M's 875th all-time, with a total of 380 yards on the ground.

Dick said we couldn't lose either way because we each have degrees from both schools (BA from Uof M, MA+ from EMU), but you know he didn't really mean it!

We came, we saw, we enjoyed.

Justin and Emily came and used our two extra tickets.

Justin bought this cap for his baby Braylon, who is now 5 weeks old.

Just an ordinary Saturday:
The number of people who were arrested on charges of being a minor in possession of alcohol or who needed medical assistance during Saturday's University of Michigan and Eastern Michigan University football game was on par with other games, despite the cross-county rivalry, University of Michigan police said.

The announced attendance at Michigan Stadium was 107,903.

According to Diane Brown, public information officer for University of Michigan police:
# Seven people were arrested on charges of being a minor in possession of alcohol.

# Ten people received citations, nine for alcohol in the stadium and one for illegal sales of tickets.

# Twenty-three people were ejected from the game, 20 for violating stadium rules and three for disorderly conduct.

# Emergency medical treatment was required for 61 people, 13 of whom were transported to the hospital.

For some reaon we were exhausted afterwards - more so than the last 2 games. Maybe sitting in the noonday sun takes more out of you than sitting in the 3:30 sun.

We collapsed at home and watched the fantastic State game, which was fantastic right up until the final score - a good game with an unfortunate outcome.

We had pizza, did some laundry, got 5 achievements on WoW and went to bed - yawn!
