Thoughts after 3 quarters, Northwestern, Michigan

- Pat Fitzgerald went to Northwestern and was a star linebacker. Chicago is a great town and Northwestern is a tremendous school and place. But it's difficult to win there in revenue sports such as football and basketball. It's just the way it has been for nearly a half a century.
But it's very difficult to watch this game and not come away impressed with just how well-coached the Wildcats are. You also can't help but wonder what Fitzgerald would do at a school where the deck isn't stacked against him like it is in Evanston.
- Finally, Michigan made a couple plays defensively. They needed to stretch the field vertically. That was more a good catch by Jeremy Gallon than throw by Devin Gardner on the long completion. The pass was underthown, or it would have gone for a touchdown. Gardner did make an excellent play-fake on the play.
- Fitzgerald Toussaint has made a couple big plays today. A 50-yard run in the first half was followed up by making a couple defenders miss in the open field on the Wolverines' third touchdown. It's about time he woke up. It has been rough season for him in comparison to 2011.
