2007 Game Footage: Michigan 33, Eastern Michigan 22
They always say "A win is a win!", but man, this one was fugly.
I don't think I have to remind people that this 2007 Michigan team was supposed to be one of Lloyd Carr's finest since 1997 with four, count 'em, four Heisman Trophy candidates on the roster, including Chad Henne, Mike Hart, Mario Manningham and even LT Jake Long. That Wolverine team beat the Eastern Michigan at home on October 6, by only 11 points and looked pretty unconvincing doing it.
This was a textbook example of a football game where Michigan had the power to score 60 points and possibly more at home against a way overmatched opponent.
Yet, why didn't they?
Here are some nice pics from that game.
