Yesterday was the 108th meeting between Michigan and Ohio State. Since I started college in 2004, Michigan had not beaten Ohio State either in Ann Arbor or Columbus. The game yesterday changed all of that though.
After being down at the half, Michigan came back to win the game 40-34 and hold a 10-2 record in Brady Hoke’s first year as head coach (not bad!). Denard Robinson combined for 337 yards and 5 touchdowns! I thought I’d post a few videos I took from yesterday. The first is a rushing touchdown in the first half by Mr. Fitzgerald Toussaint.
After the game, all the students rushed the field. Here’s a couple videos, one before I got down and one from on the field (with a nice rendition of Sweet Caroline). It was a pretty crazy post-game celebration!
Now the only questions are which bowl game Michigan will be going to and whether I will attending.
Enjoy! GO BLUE!!!
Before I continue with posts about Costa Rica, I have to show a few pics and video from this past Saturday at the Michigan vs. Notre Dame football game. It was the first game in Michigan history to be played at night under the newly added lights around the top of the stadium. There was a historic 114,804 people in a stadium that has a capacity of 109,901!
My day started off pretty early at ESPN’s College Gameday. It was madness. All of the ESPN crew were there, including Desmond Howard (GO BLUE!), Lee Corso, Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, and Erin Andrews. It was funny that whenever Kirk Herbstreit started to talk, the entire crowd started to boo him. He did go to that school down in Columbus, so that’s his fault.
There were a lot of good signs out there as well, including one that I think was hand-painted.
And one of my favorites. This had to take a long time to make. It was made of wood and a whole bunch of other stuff.
Now on to the game!
It was by far the best Maize Out I’ve seen at a Michigan game. Not only were all of the students wearing yellow and have pom pons, but the rest of the stadium did as well! The energy in the stadium was incredible and I could barely talk after the game was done with.
