Some Michigan Fans are still in shock after the loss to 7th ranked MSU two weeks ago. But the Wolverines just need to move forward and play the next game. That seems to be the message all through the locker room from Jim Harbaugh and his team.
After two weeks of seeing the endless highlights that potentially saved the Spartans season, the Wolverine’s agony will soon be over. Michigan held three practices during their bye week, giving the team enough time to get passed the disappointment, and focus on the next challenge ahead. Most players feel the same way, in the Press Conference wide receiver Amara Darboh said “Every time you lose a game, you come back to the next game with more motivation, more energy and try to do everything so you don’t have that feeling again”.
The players understands that there are five games remaining this season, still there is some unfinished business. For starters the team still has Ohio State and Minnesota, two rivalry opponents that beat them last season. If they can rebound from that devastating loss and win –out the remaining of their schedule they will be in the hunt for the Big Ten title game. But in order for that to happen this team must show some resilience in their next game.
Michigan must understand the loss to the Spartans did not wreck their season, it was just a detour to get the program moving in the right direction.
Harbaugh has his team focused on winning,”It’s kind of like a book,” he said. “The prologue has been written and now, if it’s going to be a great book, it’s got to have one heck of a conclusion. So that’s what we look for from our team”.
