"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
I posted this over on my blog Ann Arbor Machinations but I don't think anyone actually reads it so I figured I'd put it up here too.
Coach Rodriguez certainly has brought an openness that certainly did not exist in the Wolverine football program under Coach Carr. There has been media access to practices. We held a televised practice on BTN. The problem with all of this access is that it only has brought us more questions and concerns. The Wolverine fan community (at least the blaggers and readers of blags) have never been so uneasy and divided over a season. We have no real clue as to who are starting quarterback will be against Utah, let alone what our offense is going to look like. I’m scared as hell, yet… DAMN I’M PUMPED. We’re down to 8 days left. Mysteries will be solved.
Or so we think.
The glasnost of Comrade Rodriguez’s regime may not be all it seems. I don’t think we will truly see what we are in for this year until conference ball starts. I wish I knew what we were going to be running this fall. I wish I knew who the quarterback was. It is kind of like a kid at Christmas, wishing he could open his gifts early.
Woah! Just what I always wanted!
Threet is starting quarterback and should have been given a fifth star as a recruit!
Then comes the time when the toy breaks and it’s not really what you expected anyway.
That is ok though, that’s what birthdays are for.
I would rather not know what I’m getting for Christmas. The excitement is worth the wait.
Discovery Channel recently created an excellent commercial.
I also stumbled across a recent XKCD comic which parodies this commercial. Here is my take on how the world is awesome.
In Michigan Stadium, two blue hairs look down at the field. "If never gets old, huh." "Nope." "It kinda makes you wanna..." "HEY, DOWN IN FRONT!"
