Savoring The Streak Over "That Team Up North": A Look Back At 2008

The first year of the Rich Rodriguez era at Michigan was coming to a painful close, as I had predicted that previous summer. What I recall most about the 2008 contest was not the game, but the morning of the game I ran in a 5K in downtown Cleveland with my friend Tim. To be a little more precise, Tim ran - I ran, but embarrassingly strained my lower right calf muscle to the point that I was unable to finish the race. For someone who used to run cross country and Linktrack in high school, it was truly humbling. At least my injury did not impede my beer consumption during the game...

Another thing I recall from the 2008 game? Let's just say that Sam McGuffie probably remembers it in painful detail...

Anyway, below is a link to how I predicted the game would turn out...
