In the sport where games are played by college kids using an oval laced ball filled with gas, before large partisan crowds in somewhat ovate stadiums, Michigan has done better than the rest over time. Better than all the rest. Over all the time that college football has been played.
As satisfying as that fact is, it does not help them win one more game. Any game. They have to fight for each win, tradition or no tradition. They have to do the preparation and work. And according to Coach Hoke, they have to have the teamwork. He says this team has it.
Saturday, the slightly new coaching regime of Brady Hoke and Company gave it another try, and again contributed to the University’s total win column and lore by dispatching the Aztecs of San Diego State University in Michigan Stadium before some 110,000 fans.
