Looking back

Well, the 2005 season was, by almost any measure, a disappointment for Michigan. Starting the season with hopes of a repeat Rose Bowl appearance, and ending with an Alamo Bowl bid is not the most pleasant experience to exist. Let’s quickly go back and take a look at the season in review.

9-3: W 33-17 Northern Illinois. WR Adrian Arrington breaks ankle, out for season
9-10: L 17-10 Notre Dame. HB Mike Hart sprains ankle, limited time remainder of season
9-17: W 55-0 Eastern Michigan. Best offensive and defensive showing of the year
9-24: L 23-20 @Wisconsin. Stocco QB draw give Wisc the lead, Henne falls down on Hail Mary attempt.
10-1: W 34-31 @Michigan State. 2nd best win of the season, only victory vs rival
10-8: L 23-20 Minnesota. Devastating 4th quarter run by Gary Russell
10-15: W 27-25 Penn State. Best win of the year, highest ranked team to beat
10-22: W 23-20 @Iowa. Resurgence of Jerome Jackson
10-29: W 33-17 @Northwestern. Shuts down Big10’s leading offense
11-12: W 41-14 Indiana. Allows early TD, then shuts down IU until junk time
11-19: L 25-21 Ohio State. 4th quarter comeback spoils Big10 title hopes

Those are only a few of the highlights from each game, but you probably saw the rest of the important stuff.
