2007 Michigan schedule

Str ySe e br52go hMcia Di
2007 Michigan roster
Starting quarterback Chad Henne is out for at least this week. Ryan Mallett will step into the starting role, and David Cone reaches the
depth chart. The core group of Henne, Mike Hart and Mario Manningham haven't been able to click yet this season, but maybe Mallett
has just enough confidence to make something happen.

Why is Michigan 0-2? Why are the Wolverines the butt of every
ESPN joke? Find out six reasons for the horrid start here.
Maybe Michigan coach Lloyd Carr was being condescending
when he told the media to check out a book investigating the
rivalry. Kevin Wright took him literally. Here's what he found.
Take a look at the Michigan roster and see how this weekend's
game played out in our game of Procrastination Station.
" "" """""""""""""""""'"""""'""""""""'"""""'"""""""'"""'"""'""""""""""""""'"""""""""""""""""'"""""""""""""""""""""""'""""""'"" UIIIIIIIIIIIIII!IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII,~fIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII~lllll

Appalachian St. (Sept. 1), L 32-34: Imagine opening the door to your dorm
room and someone just punching you in the face. That's what happened
at the Big House. So much for a National Championship.
Oregon (Sept. 8), L 7-39: Then the person that punched you in the face added
insult to injury by stepping on your crotch and spitting in your ear. Then they walk
out your front door with your girlfriend and steal your laptop. And your pillow.
Notre Dame (Sept.15): If the Wolverines have one thing going for
them, it's that Notre Dame might actually be worse than they are. Get
hyped for Mallett-Clausen I - or at least try your best to.
Penn State (Sept. 22): Last time the Nittany Lions visited the Big House, they
were 8-0 and contending for a spot in the National Championship game. Then
Chad Henne found Mario Manningham on a slant in the end zone with one
second remaining, rudely awakening Penn State from its dream season.
at Northwestern (Sept. 29): Michigan's first road test will most likely resemble a quiz. The
Wolverines haven't lost to Northwestern since 2000. Then again, Michigan wasn't supposed
to lose to Appalachian State. Not that we'll still be bitter about that game late in September.
Eastern Michigan (Oct. 6): Although it's not a bye week, Michigan will likely get
some much-needed rest when itfaces its Huron River rivals. The Wolverines are
7-0 against the Eagles all-time, including a 55-0 steamroller in 2005.
Purdue (Oct.13): Purdue coach Joe Tiller sits on the hot seat after his team failed twice to capitalize
on a Michigan-/Ohio State-less schedule. But his team returns nine defensive starters. Too bad
they made up one of the nation's worst run defenses last year. Somewhere, Mike Hart smiles.
at Illinois (Oct. 20): Michigan has not lost a game at Memorial Stadium since
1983. But this year the game starts late, and you never know what can happen
under the lights. Then again, Juice Williams is still the Illini quarterback.
Minnesota (Oct. 27): Two years ago, the Gophers captured the Little Brown Jug for the
first time since 1986 thanks to - surprise - a late-game, long run. First-year head coach
Tim Brewster seemed excited about this game at Big Media day, but we'll see how he feels
after Michigan extends Minnesota a not-so-kind welcome back to the Big House.
at Michigan State (Nov.3): No longer will the Big Ten have John L. Smith to kick around.
The oft-criticized coach was fired after a disappointing 4-8 season. New coach Mark
Dantonio is known as a defensive guru, but have you seen what he has to work with?
at Wisconsin (Nov.10): Of all the times and places to play Wisconsin, Michigan probably prefers
not to do soat Camp Randall on a Saturday night. But that's probably when the two teams will
lock horns in a game that no longer seems destined to have Big Ten title implications.
Ohio State (Nov.17): With the loss of Troy Smith and many of his merry men, Ohio State will be
vulnerable when it comes tothe Big House in November. That's good news for Chad Henne, Mike
Hart and the rest of the seniors, who don't want to be remembered for one record: 0-4.

Michigan 27 Procrastination
Notre Dame 17 station
Before every football game this season, two the finishing touch on the critical stand when he
of the Daily's football writers will take the week- sacked Notre Dame QB #13 (after injuring QB
end's matchup to the PlayStation 2 and then let # 7 earlier in the game) on fourth-and-goal from
you know what happened. the 3-yard line and forced a fumble.
" Player of the game - Michigan RB #20 guar-
* Play of the game - Take your pick from any anteed a win and delivered. He rushed for 190
of the four stops Michigan coach Kevin Wright yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries. Three
made on his own 3-yard line with 1:45 left in the Notre Dame defenders were injured after RB
game and holding a four-point lead. DE #55 put #20 broke through their tackles.

WRIGHT
From page 6B
and the Wolverines were always
the one at a distance. Schem-
bechler even said he won't put the
Golden Domers on the schedule
"if they got down on their hands
and knees and begged ... to hell
with Notre Dame."
The controversy is still strong.
The latest episode developed this
summer. Notre Dame athletic
director Kevin White said the
FightingIrish would play Oklaho-
ma in place of Michigan when the
Fighting Irish's contract with the
Wolverines expired after 2011.
The two teams quieted the
media storm. The historical
rivalry is supposed to go through
2031, but who really knows what
will happen.
So maybe Carr wasn't just jok-
ing when he told the media to
read the book. It just might take
298 pages to explain the rivalry.
