BY JOHN BORTON T his time around, even The Big House cried. Michigan's turnover-filled, weath- er-elongated, 26-10 loss to Utah saw rivers of water running down the empty aisles of Michigan Stadium, even with the clock suspended at 7:51 of the fourth quarter. By that time, the Wolverines — or at least most onlookers — had been reduced to hoping they called it off. That didn't happen, and the teams slogged through the final moments, Utah moving to 3-0 and Michigan to a bracing 2-2. Head coach Brady Hoke, not surpris- ingly, sounded a defiant note afterward. "I remind them of the 1998 team, which was a team that lost to Notre Dame," Hoke said. "I was part of that team. We lost, lost at home to Syracuse and then went off and won part of the Big Ten championship. Those goals, our goals, are all out there." After failing to score a touchdown on offense for the second time in a loss, the Wolverines appeared to face a long, long road toward competing for that prize. With four more turnovers sinking Mich- igan's offensive effort, Utah methodically pulled away. The visitors opened the second half up 13-10 and took all of 1:27 to do what it couldn't accomplish in 30 minutes of Redshirt sophomore wideout Jehu Chesson and the U-M offense could not muster a touchdown in a game that was delayed for more than two hours.
