This Is Why Michigan Has The Best Cardiology Center in the Nation

I would think that after week four of college football, I would be ecstatic to report that Michigan is among the teams that are still undefeated with a 4-0 record. A win is a win is a win, but the last two weeks have been incredibly painful to be a Michigan fan.

First, there was Akron. I had the opportunity to go to the Akron game and let me just tell you how glad I am that I didn't make the trip to Ann Arbor that fateful Saturday. I was watching the game, wondering if this could possibly be the same team that destroyed Central Michigan 59-9 and took down Notre Dame under the lights for the second time in a row. The game could not have gotten any closer than it did, with Michigan stopping Akron on the final (and fourth) down of the game and preventing them from scoring a winning touchdown from the redzone. This conversation with Pat Forde could not have been more painful:

Michigan offensive lineman Taylor Lewan was quoted as saying that the team "wouldn't come out like that again", and I truly believed it. I didn't think it was possible for Michigan to look worse against a no-name team. And then we played Connecticut.

Not only was the game against UConn arguably worse than the game against Akron, it was for the second week in a row that we played like absolute garbage. I expected that the scare against Akron would light a fire under the players, but it seemed to do whatever the opposite of that is. We barely scraped by for the second week in a row, and I couldn't be more relieved that we have a bye week this weekend.

All I know is that if we don't get it together before Minnesota on October 5th and still win, we will probably be the only undefeated team that is also unranked.
