Michigan ran riot all over second-tier Delaware State in Ann Arbor 63-6 on a record day
for the Wolverines. Michigan, now 5-2 set team recordswith 442 yards in the first half
and 727 total. They matched a school record with a 28-point first quarter and led 49-3
with their second-highest score by halftime. QB Tate Forcier started, a week after
having a concussion, and led the Wolverines to a TD on his only drive and left the
game healthy. Denard Robinson threw two touchdown passes on just four attempts
and fumbled (again). Michigan also used its 3rd, 4th and 5th string QBs.
The Wolverines rested their top two running backs – Carlos Brown because of a
concussion and Brandon Minor who has an ankle injury – and some inexperienced
players took advantage. Vincent Smith ran for a career-high 166 yards and a TD.
Michael Cox had 82 yards rushing and two scores. Michael Shaw ran for 73 yards
and a TD.
The game wasn't a complete loss for the Hornets as Michigan shelled out $550,000
to Delaware State to forfeit a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference game at North Carolina
A&T to let Michigan slap them around for a little bit.
Next up for the Wolverines is No.13 Penn State in Ann Arbor at 3:30pm.
No idea where the game is going to be televised.
I'm All In for Michigan Football!
ps. Ohio State lost to Purdue 28-16. At this point, I sure am glad that Terrel Pryor
chose to be a Buckeye and not a Wolverine. This is from the Columbus Dispatch,
"The first half was a crime against football. Purdue committed two turnovers,
had an 18-yard punt and missed a field-goal attempt but still led 9-7,
thanks to Ohio State's ineptitude." O-H-I-Oh... LOL.
