It's Time

Another year has passed and here we are again in a familiar situation. Last game of the regular season, Big Ten Championship on the line as well as a trip to the Rose Bowl. Coming into this season we had very high hopes. Thoughts of a trip to New Orleans crossed our minds at times. That was all dashed away in week 1 and then buried deep into the ground after week 2. But now we stand 10 weeks later playing for almost everything this senior class came back to play for. Beat Ohio State. Win the Bowl Game.

Jake, Chad and Mike could have left last season for the NFL but they didn't. These guys know, as well as you and I do, that this class' legacy rests on these last two games. No matter what records Henne and Hart break, if they do not get the job done on Saturday, there will always be that asterisk by them in the minds of many of the Michigan faithful because they never beat Ohio State. Not only for them, but for Coach Carr who will be retiring who has come under fire recently as well for his inability to beat Tressel and bowl games.

So here we are 3 days and 1 game away from cementing a legacy, a legacy for the Mike Hart, Chad Henne and Jake Long, a legacy for Coach Carr and another legend to add to the folklore of this program. Go Blue!
