Coming Back Strong

After Michigan started their season with two embarrassing losses to Appalachian State and Oregon, most people wrote them off as they fell out of the rankings. Since those first two weeks the Wolverines have won five straight games and are now ranked 24th in the nation. Michigan still has a very good shot of winning the Big Ten title as they are the only team, besides Ohio State, that has not lost yet in Big Ten play. The Big Ten title could very well come down to another classic Michigan vs number one ranked Ohio State match up.

Michigan has stayed in contention largely due to efforts of running back Mike Hart. Hart has carried this team through the mud and has brought them back to respectability this season. He has ran for 1078 yards and twelve touchdowns. Hart has also ran for over 100 yards in every single game and has scored at least one touchdown in every game but one. He is in contention for the Heisman Trophy and rightfully so. He leads the nation in rushing and is third in rushing touchdowns. This Michigan would not have anything to play for right now without their number one back, and his recognition is clearly deserved.
