I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
On Saturday, Michigan's football season will start the Saturday after the next one. I think it will be hard for me to get through Thursday and Friday of that first week. It's also hard to get through the days leading up to Thursday and Friday.
The other day in response to the film "Nick Saban: Gamechanger," someone on this site wondered whether Alabama fans really have anything better to do in their lives but watch Alabama football. "True enough," I thought. "They have no pro teams down there. Poor Alabamians."
But then I paused a little, because I sort of obsess about Michigan football every day, and worry that if we have a bad season my quality of life will be diminished significantly. I think if we have a great season, I'll want to beatify Rich Rod, much like Alabama fans reverence Nick Saban. I also look forward to Michigan games just about as much as I look forward to anything (at least on tv). So in a way, I don't have anything in my life MORE exciting than Michigan football either. I like MGOBLOG, but I think that's also Michigan football.
Wait -- I have a large tomato gard. . nah.
So how am I better than an Alabama fan?
Can you believe the commissioner of the the WAC pointed to Texas-San Antonio as a potential replacement of Nevada and Fresno State? Not only is UTSA an FCS team, but they've never even played a game — 2010 is their inaugural season.
What a mess. I feel bad for teams like Idaho and New Mexico State. If the WAC folds, it's hard to imagine that they'll be able to continue to play.
Obviously wouldn't help us this year... but would be nice to have him next year.
Stonum had a ham sandwich at lunch today, and a side of baked beans, which have given him what the team is calling, "A Corner Repellent Field". Expect big things out of him for the next 8-12 hours, followed by one very big thing.
What have you heard from a reliable source lately?
Mostly just a fluff piece with the same old stuff. Generally not a big fan of Mandel (he calls us Big Blue in the title) as he's just another national writer who knows less about our team than anyone on this board with 1000+ points. At least he's not bashing us or saying someone is transferring or hurt or some other crap we don't need.
