The road to redemption starts at Stadium & Main

The Wolverines suffered last Saturday what is being termed "the worst loss in college football history". The loss resulted in Michigan suffering an unprecedented precipitous drop out of the Top 25 polls. The Wolverines have fallen (temporarily) off the mountain of college football's elite programs. There is only one route back to the top of the mountain: the road to redemption. The road to redemption is a difficult path and it is an arduous journey. It takes some schools years (e.g., Nebraska) to make the trip. Others get lost on the way (e.g., Notre Dame) and never seem to quite make it back to the top of the college football mountain. Michigan's road back begins tomorrow at Stadium and Main with a game against Oregon. A victory over the Ducks would instill the Wolverines with confidence as they make the steep ascent back up the mountain. However, a loss would be devastating to the Wolverines and might derail all hope of making any meaningful headway on the road to redemption for the remainder of the 2007 season. The trip back to the top of the college football mountain begins tomorrow. Hopefully, the Wolverines can head in the right direction. Go Blue!

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhh, first things first. They have played ONE game and couldn't beat a I-AA and you are talking redemption against Oregon, a solid Division I program?

Karma is a #itch. You guys that were whining last January about the BCS rankings should have accepted the spot with no complaints.You were over-rated then, over-rated at the beginning of the year, and NOT ranked now. The big 11 are old and slow,just like their coaches. Time to wake up. You guys have been living in the past too long. What has gone around is coming back...GO Mountaineers and Ducks!

Stop with the weird "football is life" mentality that fosters this stripe of rhetoric. Concentrate on fundamentals, like the secondary not crossing their damn feet.
