There is a palpable energy in the air during the football
season, the students are back and the vigor they bring breathes new life back
into the city.
This year brings hope.
It is more than the pride, the traditions, and history of
our storied athletic program. Its about
honor and doing things right. Having something to rally around.
Its about something bigger then ourselves.
So we could have played a fluff team for out opener, but a challenging
win means much more. So Hoke could have let Toussaint play in what might arguably
be the biggest game of the season, but instead he did what was right and
suspended him for his actions. Now a win will mean more.
Michigan has played Alabama before, but
never in the regular season. They do hold the advantage in the series 2-1 but these
stats mean next to nothing.
Tonight under the lights in Cowboy Stadium we will take the field
as the underdogs. We will walk in heads high, and our expectation will be
nothing less than a win.
We carry the hopes of
the Big 10 with us, and well do so with honor and integrity.
We will succeed… as we always have.
Good Luck Boys, you have already won in my book.
