Oregon 32
Michigan 7

and that's the score at halftime. Halftime!

I'm speechless. I'm 24 years old and have been a Michigan fan all my life. I've never seen the wolverines play this bad. I've never heard the wolverines booed off the field at halftime. I've never heard them booed at home period.

I'm thinking this Michigan team really is as bad as they looked last week, and that makes no sense at all. I can see the defense being shaky, but this? No one envisioned this.

And our offense I think was assumed by everyone to be a top 5 caliber offense with seniors at QB, RB, RT, and 2 star receivers. We have 7 points today against a weak Oregon defense.

Henne has regressed, and that is absurd. I'm pretty sure we'll see Mallet start the 2nd half, and sadly, that is the only good decision that Carr will have made this game, if it happens.

The sky is falling! ahhhh

EDIT:
Final: Oregon 39 | Michigan 7

How is it that the defense got completely owned in the first half of both games, but actually played well in the 2nd half of both games? Why the hell can't they play that well in the first half of games?

Ryan Mallet has not had very much practice time and it definitely showed. He looked like he barely knew the playbook. All we really know about him is that he's got a cannon for an arm. Manningham really screwed up a perfectly thrown pass to him that was tipped and resulted in an interception. Nice job Mario, way to instill some confidence in our true freshman QB.

Mallet finished just 6/14 passing for 49 yards and an interception. *groan*

Hart further injured himself, Henne may or may not be injured. My friend and I think it might have been an excuse to bench him. Jake Long hobbled around for a bit, who knows with him.

Its very possible that the 3 seniors on offense are all injured though. It can get worse. It can always get worse.

If the maize and blue can't pull out a win against Notre Dame next week, Its safe to say that Lloyd Carr has lost this team, and if that's the case, it will all but assure that Michigan finishes with a losing record for the first time in over 40 years.

We've already lost 4 games in a row for the first time since 1967. In fact, [and this is just downright spooky] Michigan has not won since Bo passed away.

This season's on its way to what could be the worst season ever in my entire life... and so waht if we win at ND next week. ND is a shitty team who's got a 0-2 record as well. Enxt weekend's matchup should've been the game of the giants but now it looks nothing more than a pillow fight...

I plan on watching the Notre Dame game and just trying to enjoy it. I'm going to ignore the fact that Notre Dame and Michigan are both 0-2 and are both coming off embarrassing efforts. After the Notre Dame game, depending on how we play, I'll either tune out Michigan football for the rest of the season [to spare myself more pain] or continue watching, hoping we've reached a turning point.

At the very least, we'll get to see Mallet vs Clausen round 1. [unless Notre Dame morphs to a spread offense/mobile QB next week]

I'm just worried that this team will do something like beat Notre Dame, and beat Penn State only to lose to Purdue, Illinois, Michigan State, etc...
