We'd love to have you!!!
We waited more than seven months for the first whistle, for all the heart-stopping and sometimes heartbreaking moments that go with the start of a new season.
Nothing about Week 1 disappointed: Eye-popping plays, superstar players and careless mistakes were made -- a tantalizing appetizer for all the football yet to come.
Shall we start in Ann Arbor? No coach went into the season with more on the line than Michigan's Rich Rodriguez. Uncertainty has engulfed a once-proud football program, and Rodriguez made sure it stayed that way until just before the start of the Connecticut game. He refused to name a starting quarterback, hinting only with a mysterious smile that he had a pretty good idea of who would give his team the best chance to win.
Pretty good turned into magnificent, as quarterback Denard Robinson proved to be a one-man unstoppable force, gouging the Huskies' defense for 197 yards rushing in a 30-10 victory. Robinson's play gave Wolverines fans everywhere the hope that has been so desperately missing from a program reeling from two straight losing seasons.
