The Law of the Jungle

For so many reasons that I can not explain, Michigan's win against Florida yesterday was maybe the most rewarding Michigan football game I've ever seen. I'm no good with words...images exemplify it far beyond my power to write. Let me simply say that I am just so damn happy.

Every night before a Michigan game, the defensive starters gather together in a room all by themselves, no coaches, just players...they dim the lights and recite the following poem by Rudyard Kipling...
Now this is the Law of the Jungle -- as old and as true as the sky;
And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree-trunk the Law runneth forward and back --
For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
