Go Blue

After two consecutive years of what have amounted to complete and utter debacles of a football season(s), it was a bit harder than usual to get excited for college football season this year. For maybe the first time in my life as a Michigan fan, I feared the worst.

And so, it was with some measure of trepidation - but also, as usual, excitement, that I watched the kickoff of our 2010 season. And man, what a kickoff it was. I was trying hard not to get too excited because it's one game and we went through this drill last year. But wow -- we had a new look to us and our quarterback was beyond description. That might be the best Michigan QB performance I have ever seen, and e've had a few decent QB's (read Tom Brady, Jim Harbaugh, Elvis Grbac, Chad Henne) come through the program.

Notre Dame should be an even better test, so I will try to remain calm. But let's just say that I speak for a lot of people when I say that let's hope Saturday is a harbinger of things to come.

I woke up and watched the game on line at 330 am. Certainly worth it.
