With a streak of 33 straight Bowl appearances on the line and Motor City Bowl officials on hand, Michigan goes out and looks like shit against Toledo. Yes Michigan lost Jake Long, Chad Henne, and Mike Hart but with a new coach this is not what Michigan had in mind. This is not the debut Rich Rodriguez had pictured in his head when he signed a 5 million dollar per year contract. Yes they were playing Toledo, but it was a must win for Michigan and in front of the home crowd they choke 13-10.
Michigan does not have it easy if they want to keep their bowl streak alive. With games against Penn State, Michigan St and Ohio St, I would say they are done for the year. The other games are against Northwestern, Purdue, Minnesota, which compared to Toledo are much better football teams. So the future is not looking too bright. Rich better hope he has a great recruiting class coming in. I also bet he cries at night wishing Travelle Pryor had signed with Michigan.
But no matter what happens Michigan fans will always be Michigan fans.
