Appalachian St Mountaineers (0-0, 0-0 Sun Belt) @ Michigan Wolverines (0-0, 0-0 B1G)
Saturday, 8/30 Noon pm ET, Michigan Stadium, ESPN2
Welp, I guess it’s happening.
The last time this game was played, this blog didn’t exist. And I’m glad for that. Because had that been my first foray into blogdom, I’m not sure I would have made it to week 2.
The good news is: this isn't 2007. Appy State isn't lining up Armanti Edwards and rattling of FCS National Championships. In fact, they only won four games last year. And at least this time, the game actually counts being that Appy State has moved on up and is a proud member of the Sun Belt Conference.
Moreover, this isn't 2007 Michigan. At least I hope it’s not. If it is, basketball is only a few months away.
Gardner is back, healthy, a senior and pretty good. Nussmeier has had really great success with quarterbacks. So if the line can hold up, at all, we should see good things from him.
