Poise in the face of NOISE!

Michigan QB Chad Henne did a remarkable job running the offense in "white out" conditions at Beaver Stadium on Saturday. At the Monday press conference Coach Carr stated, "That's where I think Chad Henne was just unbelievable, in the way that he was able to keep us in our offense, get us in the right play, because there's a lot of teams that go into those situations and just decide they're not going to check the play, they're just going to call a play and run it. And when you do that, you make it easier, but once the ball is snapped, it's not easier."

The Penn State game was Henne's 31st consecutive start at QB at Michigan and his experience showed. He handled the pressure like he was playing a home game rather than playing in front of 110,000 hostile fans who wished he had signed with their school. Henne made his usual laser like throws especially on the TD pass to Adrian Arrington that put Michigan on the board. Hopefully, this performance will silence once and for all the maize and blue critics who questioned his ability to lead. Go Blue!
