Back For Seconds: The Game

I have a few additional thoughts about Saturday’s win in The Game that I want to touch upon today. My immediate post-game recap tends to be a stream-of-consciousness game flow effort. This has a bit more thought put to it. If you need a quick refresher on Saturday’s win over Michigan 42-28, go here, then breathe a […]
