Michigan's back as a ranked team!

"Michigan is No. 25 in The Associated Press poll released Sunday, earning a spot
after beating then-No. 18 Notre Dame 38-34 in a closely contested game decided
in the final seconds.

With a 2-0 start, a lot of maize-and-blue clad fans suddenly are having fun at
Michigan Stadium after enduring five losses at home last year, when Rich Rodriguez’s
debut season with the Wolverines got off to an awful start. Michigan’s miserable
season, complete with a school-record nine losses, is fading from memory thanks in
large part to QB freshman Tate Forcier. Rodriguez didn’t have a QB who fit his spread
system last season, but he does now. Forcier has completed 68 percent of his passes in
two games for 419 yards, five TDs and one interception. He has run for a team-high 107
yards, a score and has been sacked just twice.

The last time Michigan was ranked they beat the Tim Tebow-led Florida Gators
in the 2008 Capital One Bowl. The Wolverines were No. 18 in the final poll
that season.

In the ESPN College Football Power Rankings for Week 2, they have Michigan at No.22.
It's nice to see Michigan back where they belong in the Top 25. Other teams of note
include the Cincinnati Bearcats, who are No.17 up from No.22 after hanging 70
on Southeast Missouri State.

Also it's rumored that Michigan will wear all white for the upcoming night game at Iowa
on October 10th instead of their normal maize colored pants. How cool would that be?

I'm All In for Michigan Football!

GO Blue!
