Thoughts after 3rd quarter Notre Dame, Michigan

- It wasn't long ago Jeremy Gallon seemed undersized and underwhelming, but it wouldn't surprise me if he is an All-Big Ten receiver. He had a big game against ND two years ago, but this is turning into one for the ages. He has really taken off since Devin Gardner became Michigan's primary QB.
- These are two well-drilled football teams. It's been an impressive game so far considering it is early in the season. It's been very hard hitting. When Notre Dame tried running up the middle a few times in a row during the third quarter, the pads really started cracking. It's college football at its best in every way.
- Notre Dame's scoring drive was impressive. Ninety yards, 12 plays, five-plus minutes mixing both the run and pass effectively. The Fighting Irish remain formidable. They were not going to fold at the first sign of pressure. A bright side for Michigan has been preventing the big play and pretty much staying ahead of the curve. The Wolverines did respond with an impressive drive of their own.
