Michigan Football: Tidbits from Higbe -- Are We Tough Enough

Michigan Football: Tidbits from Higbe — Are We Tough Enough

So are we tough enough, seems to be the question?

First let me start with a story, last week, Taylor, Michael and Russ were in their house playing a video game when they heard a boom and the power went out. They went outside and saw traffic stopping and people running towards a house a few doors down. They ran over there and found a car into a house, an athletic trainer from Eastern Michigan was already there checking on the driver. Who was having a medical issue, there was live power lines popping on the ground and the gas line to the house was ruptured. These kids picked up the driver and carried him several doors down until fire and EMS arrived. Not bad for a bunch of softies.

One of the worst things you can say to a Michigan lineman D or O is you guys are soft. MSU is going to bully you again, well I can tell you this, it will not be the case. These kids are ready physically and mentally. As far as new kids on the line, back in 2011 at MSU Michael was playing guard, he only had a few games at that position. He played his best game of the year and graded out the top offensive lineman, point being Bosch/Mags are ready for this, new does not mean soft.

Michigan is ready, the team is ready. We beat ourselves at Penn State and played without our All-American LT, and scored TD’s. Look for Jake Ryan to start and play, they have taken their time with his play time, that should change, the D is totally different when he is in.

We have all the parts to win. We have not put them all together at once. Either the O played well or the D played well. This week I expect all parts to step up for a big win.

I hope the media keeps saying we are not tough enough, we play soft, we are not physical, we will get bullied, because it has become a huge motivator.
