Henne returns to form, leads Wolverines to victory
The plan was for Chad Henne to play the Wolverines' first offensive series of each half of the Northwestern game. However, sometimes the best laid plans go awry. Northwestern jumped out to a 16-7 halftime lead and the Wolverines' offense was ineffective in the first half other than on the first drive. Thus, Henne was pressed into duty for the entire second half. His knee held up. (I was reminded of the old Bob Ufer line about John Wangler's knee- "The only thing as fragile as Wangler's knee is sending cookies through the mail.") Henne was impressive as he completed 18 of 27 passes for 193 yards and 3 touchdowns while leading Michigan to 21 second half points to key a comeback victory. It was good to have Henne back at the helm. Go Blue!
