this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
What 5 teams would you most like to see Michigan face in OOC play?
My List (In No Particular Order):
An ongoing project I'm putting together, this is a compilation of mainstream media articles in which Michigan is baselessly and inexplicably classified as a team in ruins. I don't expect the Wolverines to be in anyone's Top 10, don't get me wrong. But if you're going to make a point of writing that Michigan is "in the 40s and falling" in your Spring Top 25, at least one line of textual support would seem appropriate.

http://www.sportingnews.com/yourturn/viewtopic.php?t=405647 Michigan one of 5 teams “in reverse.”
http://cfn.scout.com/2/744200.html Ohio State a “likely loss,” no “almost certain wins.”

I hear fans form opposing schools all the time (mainly the sparty grads.) that fans of U of M that did not go to school at Michigan can not be fans. You have to go to or have graduated from Michigan to support or be a huge fan of them. This really pisses me off because I LOVE Mich. Football (and all sports). Not that I care because it has not changed the way I feel... I played football in High School and was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend football camp at Michigan (won the tug of war contest in '95 - i know sweet huh?). Anyway, I fell in love with the Michigan Football program. I was able to hear Bo speak, meet players, learn the tradition, etc... Unfortunately, I was not good enough to earn a "ride" to U of M (I played D3), and to lazy to get good enough grades to get accepted. Since then I have been a HUGE fan of the program...
Anyway, I wondered what some of you graduates of Michigan thought about this?

Thanks everyone for commenting on my post! Well, I have to get to Wal-Mart.. need to get my t-shirts and such for the fall... but while I am there I will double check to see if they sell MSU stuff as well... they do it was right next to the t-shirts that my Little brother wears!
Go Blue! Maybe I will see you at the Big House this Fall!
To all my fellow Wolverines here is a copy of this years bowl game. You will have to download this websites video player in order to watch or save. This is the same video that has been posted on the Rivals, Scout, and Hail Victors message boards.
