This start is something we all somewhat expected, but damn this team is doing it with flair. The players are buying in more than ever and like any elite team they are taking on the identity of their coach. From Wilton Speight, to Jordan Lewis, to Jake Butt, to even the holder Garrett Moores — they're loving the game and showing it in everything they do. With it appearing as if we're going in undefeated versus OSU at the end of the year, it appears that some players are already thinking about it just a little bit, in a good way. This team has not forgot about last year. They WILL BE ready for the test. Karan Higdon has really stood out, and taken leaps I think few expected. His game is at a new level, thanks to the extra work put in with Tyrone Wheatley and that'll continue to show as he sees carries each game. He hits the hole harder than anybody in a winged helmet I've seen in quite a while. Ty Isaac has continued to see more time as I mentioned in my last post and his progression is encouraging. De'Veon Smith is still the guy, in my opinion, but they will ride the hot hand. The guys know that and although they are competing fiercely, the group is incred- ibly tight knit. KGillGoBlue   FROM OUR READERS Jim Harbaugh's crew has the Michigan fanbase confident heading into the second half of the season at 6-0 with an average margin of victory of 39.7 points per game.
