27-25 Yeah Baby......

It was the Big Ten season opener,
for the Wolverines that day.
The Badgers beat them last year,
there was retribution to pay!
The first half started poorly,
Wisconsin was very rude.
Behind 19 to zip at half-time,
the team was loudly boo'ed.
The Red and White grew complacent,
they thought the game was won.
Thats when the Mighty Maize and Blue,
began it's historic run...
Slowly the Wolverines took the lead,
It ELECTRIFIED the crowd.
The Big House went from silent,
to deafeningly LOUD!!!
The Badgers showed their spirit,
A touchdown put them within two.
But the Football Gods were smiling that day..
And it was the Red, that went home Blue!!!
This was the 500th game at storied Michigan Stadium.
This was the largest 'come from behind' victory at the Big House.
This was Glorious..
This was College Football..
This was MICHIGAN!!!!!!!

I do not know what happened in that locker room but neither Wisconsin or Michigan deserved to win the game the way they played the first half. Luckily something sparked Michigan at half time and they played much better, much more like the Michigan I love.

I sure hope we see more of the second half the rest of the season, especially November 22! GO BLUE!
