I did not make this headline up
I have heard so many people try and squash the enthusiasm of the Michigan faithful in the wake of their 3 consecutive victories. These are the same analysts who tout the greatness of Notre Dame, and are quick to make excuses when they lose. They still give them the benefit of the doubt, and they refuse to acknowledge the fact that they are mediocre.
Michigan fans, however, are told to hold back their enthusiasm until they beat a good team. Don't get to excited that your offense has taken a step because Tate will fail at some point and we will all have to come to grips with his inexperience. RichRod is desperate for a win, and he will do what is best for him rather than the players.
Winning three games out of three is a milestone when you go 3-9 one year ago. Piss off, haters. We love our team, and we stood by and cheered them on when times were tough. What makes you think we aren't going to do that after each game? Each game puts us that much farther away from last season, and we can finally look ahead now that the season is under way. Win or lose we love this team. Go Blue.
After last year's growing pains, lack of good 'holy crap' moments, and the daily defense of Rich Rod and his offense to nearly every non-Michigan fan I have ever known, I will never tire of seeing Michigan highlights on TMZ -er- ESPN.
Flashes of Tate's shredding of Notre Dame's D was just highlighted during the GT/Miami game tonight. It was great seeing something other than Tim Tebow, Brett Favre, and how much fun Pete Carroll is having. It's no secret that ESPN is like a kid with ADHD, and anything that is shiny and new seems to get put on high-rotation right away. With the high paced nature of the new offense, and emergence of Tate as a potential human highlight reel, I hope we will be there many more times this season.
It sure is nice not having to defend this team with my words, their play has stated my case better than I ever could. Way to go, guys.
