The University of Michigan Wolverines Claw Their Way Through Their Season

The+University+of+Michigan+Wolverines+Claw+Their+Way+Through+Their+Season

As the 2023-2024 University of Michigan football season got underway, the Wolverines started and finished the season strong, undefeated.

The Wolverines emerged victorious against East Carolina 30-3, UNLV 35-7, Bowling Green 31-6, Rutgers 31-7, Nebraska 45-7, Minnesota 52-10, Indiana 52-7, Michigan State 49-0, Purdue 41-13, Penn State 24-15, Maryland 31-24, Ohio State 30-24, Iowa 26-0, Alabama 27-20, and Washington 34-13.

Over the season, the Wolverines were hungry for a national championship. They did just that in the 2024 CFP National Championship. There were many highlights during the game. An article from SportingNews.com elaborates on this by going quarter by quarter. A graphic from the article shows that in quarters one, two, three, and four respectively, the U of M Wolverines scored 14, three, three, and 14 points, leading to a final score of 34 for the Wolverines. Their opponents Washington, managed to score three, seven, and three points, leading to a final score of thirteen.

The game lasted from the first touchdown at 7:52 P.M. by Michigan Wolverines running back Donovan Edwards. Eventually, after a 3-hour and 6-minute game, at 10:58 P.M., the Michigan Wolverines running back Blake Corum caught the ball and ran his hardest to the end zone, leading to a 7-yard touchdown. This 7-point touchdown was the final one in the game, leading to a final score of 34-13.

Julie Roda, LSHS Mathematics teacher, and department head said, “I’m pleased about it. In the 2024 CFP National Championship, both the U of M Wolverines and their opponents the Washington Huskies were undefeated, as the Huskies went 14-1 during their season, and the Wolverines went 15-0. So, from the beginning, I knew this matchup would be one for the record books.”

This reaction shows that people will support their local sports teams.

Andrew Creson, senior, said, “I’m a Michigan State fan, but I’m happy for any Michigan team’s success.”

Even though some people aren’t U of M Football fans, Michigan citizens will still support their home teams.

Let’s wish the U of M football the best of luck in the next season and hope that they can defend their CFP Championship title.

About the Contributor
Michael Roda, Staff Writer
Hello, My name is Michael Roda, I’m 18 years old, and in my senior year at Lake Shore High School. My top 2 hobbies are the following, #1, making music on my 2 acoustic guitars, and my ukulele, and writing stories. In fact, in the 83 days that elapsed from Friday, June 16th, 2023, to the 1st day of school, Tuesday, September 5th, 2023, I wrote 8 different novels. These novels include The Bowling Bonanza, The Secluded Species, Velocity: Unleashing The Jet-Powered Revolution, Mental Madness, Bowling For The Ages, The Scarring Story, The Sneaky Swordsmith, and The Gruesome Game. All of these novels differ in length. The Bowling Bonanza was 19 pages long, The Secluded Species was 12 pages long, Velocity: Unleashing The Jet-Powered Revolution was 15 pages long, Mental Madness was 16 pages long, Bowling For The Ages was 17 pages long, The Scarring Scar was 12 pages long, The Stealthy Swordsmith was 13 pages long, and The Gruesome Game was 14 pages long. This is my second Summer break in a row, where I’ve been writing novels. In fact, during the 83 days that elapsed during Summer break 2022, which spanned from Friday, June 17th, 2022, to the 1st day of school of the 2022-2023 school year, Tuesday, September 6th, 2022, I wrote 10 different novels, Ice Age #2, The Deep Freeze, Late, Natural Disasters, The Dream Decimator, Police Pandemonium, The 30th Anniversary, The Dramatic Drift (which I worked on with fellow senior Nathan Smith), The Great Fire, The Mythical Music Festival, The Supercar Showdown, YouTuber Edition, and The Zombie Apocalypse, Mankind's Final Frontier. Like the novels I mentioned earlier, all 10 of these novels varied in length. Ice Age #2, The Deep Freeze was 12 pages long, Late was 15 pages long, Natural Disasters, The Dream Decimator was 17 pages long, Police Pandemonium was 14 pages long, The 30th Anniversary was 9 pages long, The Dramatic Drift was 70 pages long, The Great Fire was 36 pages long, The Mythical Music Festival was 16 pages long, The Supercar Showdown, YouTuber Edition was 14 pages long, and The Zombie Apocalypse, Mankind's Final Frontier was 13 pages long. All of this novel writing, sparked when I was in the Writers’ Club in my 7th and 8th grade years, the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 LSPS school years, where I wrote 6 different novels. These novels include An Alarming Automotive Accident, Discovery (which was a 2-parter), The Supercar Showdown, and Speed, (which like Discovery was a 2-parter). All 6 of these novels, like the 17 novels mentioned earlier, differed in length. An Alarming Automotive Accident was 4 pages long, Discovery (which was a 2-parter), was in total, 8 pages long, with part 1 being 3 pages long, and part 2 being 5 pages long, The Supercar Showdown was 7 pages long, and Speed, (which like Discovery was a 2-parter), was in total, 8 pages long, with part 1 being 3 pages long, and part 2 being 6 pages long. All of these activities, however, were during my free time. In the intervening time between writing novels, and making music, during the 3 years of middle school, I didn’t have anything going on, until I got into my high school years, where I had 2 other activities occurring. The 1st came 1 week after school got out, on Thursday, June 22nd, and spanned to Sunday, June 25th, 2023. It was a leadership conference at Michigan State University in East Lansing, known as MYLead, which is an acronym for Michigan Youth Leadership. It was at this conference that I was working behind the scenes, as a Logistics Intern (LI). This was my 2nd year at Michigan State University, as I also attended last year from Friday, June 24th, 2022, to Sunday, June 26th, 2022, as a Young Leader (YL). Then, 15 days after the 2023 MYLead conference, on Monday, July 10th, 2023, I began working as a store worker at Great Lakes ACE Hardware, which spanned over 24 days, 4 days a week, for 6 weeks. This spanned from Monday, July 10th, 2023, to Thursday, August 17th, 2023, where I was working from 9:30 A.M. to 2:30 P.M. This is my 2nd year working, as I worked at Big Lots last year, from Monday, July 11th, 2022, to Thursday, August 18th, 2022. After the 2023 program concluded, I earned $1,045.35. This is $68.11 more than I earned last year, as when I worked at Big Lots, I was working during the same timeframe, from 9:30 A.M. to 2:30 P.M, and I managed to earn $977.24. However, this work wasn’t the traditional job, where you go in for an interview. This was through Michigan Rehabilitation Services (MRS) (Gesher Human Services), which is a non-profit organization, which is headquartered in Southfield, Michigan. These totals were because while I was in this program over the last two Summers, I was getting paid minimum wage, which was $9.87/hour in 2022, and this increased to $10.10/hour in 2023. My goals after high school are to build up enough money, buy a 1.1-acre piece of land, and build my 3-story, 38,383ft2 dream house. After I pay off that house, I would then travel to my local Lexus dealer, and then purchase my dream car, a 2022 Lexus LS.
