Last Week at The Wolverine Den

Michigan 14 - Kansas State 31

Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl

Sun Devil Stadium

December 28, 2013 - 10:15 pm ET

In front of the 3rd largest crowd in the history of the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, the Michigan Wolverines finished the season with a 31-14 loss to the Kansas State Wildcats. The game was a disappointment and a microcosm of a season filled with disappointment. QB Devin Gardner did not play after injuring his foot against Ohio in the final Big Ten game. Freshman Shane Morris made his first start as a Wolverine. Morris was a heralded prep quarterback and he showed signs of a bright future. He completed 24-38 passes for 196 yards and also rushed for 43 yards. The big lefty is talented but inexperienced. His time will come.

The Wolverine Den Trivia

How many Michigan Wolverines are in the Rose Bowl Hall of Fame?

The only real bright spot in the game (and in the season) was the play of Jeremy Gallon. With 9 catches for 89 yards, Gallon set a new school record for most receiving yards in a season (1373) passing Braylon Edwards. Gallon also set a Michigan record with receptions in 39 consecutive games. Combined with Devin Funchess, the pair set a school record for receiving yards (2121) passing the tandem of Mario Manningham and Adrian Arrington in 2007. It was quite a year for Jeremy Gallon and he was rewarded with the Bo Schembechler Award as the team MVP.

The setting was great, the weather was great, the tailgate was great, but the game was not great. There is much work to do. We saw glimpses in 2013 (the win over Notre Dame, the performance against Ohio). But there is much work to do.
