Wolverine Warriors

Michigan played Eastern Michigan today, and we invited Heather and Justin, the Wolverine Warriors, to sit with us. It turned out to be a great day weatherwise, and they are always good company.

Eastern played way too well at first, and made our team look a little silly at times, but then the sleeping giant woke up, and our team took control of the rest of the game.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Junior quarterback Denard Robinson (Deerfield Beach, Fla./Deerfield Beach) and junior running back Vincent Smith (Pahokee, Fla./Pahokee) each eclipsed 100 yards rushing as the University of Michigan football team ran over Eastern Michigan, 31-3, on Saturday (Sept. 17) at Michigan Stadium. Robinson neared his career high in rushing attempts with 26, amassing 198 yards and a touchdown, while Smith ran the ball nine times for 118 yards.

You might say that this was the perfect football day.
