Devin Gardner had some rust with his arm.

But his legs, and his shake, were just fine.

Gardner danced for two first-half touchdowns on the ground Saturday, and finished 10 of 15 for 162 yards through the air -- to go along with a pair of interceptions -- as No. 17 Michigan demolished visiting Central Michigan 59-9 in the 2013 season-opener at Michigan Stadium.

Michigan disposed of Central Michigan quite easily, and the countdown to the matchup under the lights with Notre Dame has officially begun. But before moving on to the Irish, let's look at what happened on Saturday against Central Michigan.

Big deal. U of M cracks me up. So what if you win big over a crummy little school team. What a joke. Play some real teams and win like that or win at all. Then you'd have something to be proud of. Give me a break....
