With no further delay, here is the real-time recap of Michigan's 34-10 win over Indiana on homecoming at Michigan Stadium.

Hey gang, this is Eugene Evans again coming to you from Ann Arbor today for Indiana at Michigan.

You can argue that the game is secondary today compared to the off-the-field issues with Michigan.

As most of you know, AD Dave Brandon resigned yesterday and the search is on for a permanent replacement.

For the time being, we will focus on the action on the gridiron today so I hope you guys enjoy today's thread.

Current Weather Conditions at 2:48 pm ET: 39 degrees, mostly cloudy.

Michigan TE Jake Butt has been suspended for one game due to a violation of team rules.

Yay, we will have two windows open in the press box for today's game. The reason is to create a better atmosphere for reporters.

The student section appears to be 75 percent full at kickoff.

Michigan wins the toss and defers to the second half.

Indiana was forced to punt on its opening drive.

Michigan strikes first as Matt Wile makes a 35-yd FG to go up 3-0 with 8:20 left in the opening quarter.

U-M forced fumble as it recovers at the IU 27.

As he was falling to the ground, Gardner Favres the ball to TE Keith Heitzman for a 7-yd TD pass.Ind 0 Mich 10, 5:22 1st.

This is the Devin Gardner that Michigan fans have been craving all season long.

UM is slowly reverting back to the team we have been accustomed of seeing all season.

QB Comparison So Far: Diamont (IND) 2-4 8 yds, Gardner (MICH) 8-10 89 yds and a TD.

Wash, rinse and repeat as IU goes and three and out.

I'm thinking that IU's Tevin Coleman was benched for the first quarter fumble. I would expect him back in the lineup before halftime.

Gardner being Gardner as he forced the ball to Funchess with two defenders draped on him.

Gardner finds Darboh on the slant for a 12-yd TD pass. XP is good as U-M goes up 17-0 on IU with 7:18 left in the first half.

Diamont fumbles as he started to scramble and Ryan Glasgow recovers for UM.

Michigan has needed others to step up all season and today they are getting that with Darboh and Johnson.
