Frustrated ... but don't jump yet
First off I want to rant ... There should be a law banning weddings on football Saturday. I had to go to a wedding this Saturday and I have a wedding on the Saturday of the MSU game. UNREAL!!!!
I caught the tail end of the game at the bar while we were waiting for the reception to start. I started thinking to myself a couple things. First off, the need for a different breed of player doesn't just apply to the offense. The defense has long needed an overhaul from the traditional 6-2 250 lb linebackers that run a 4.6 40 and the corners that can't stop a double move. Secondly, I started thinking back to giant reformations of quarterbacks and how they went and how long it took for that team to come back to dominance.j
I remembered USC started 2-5 in Carroll's first year, with that 5th loss being a sheer domination at the hands of an awful Notre Dame team. I remember watching that game and thinking USC might never be good again, and of course the next year they were a BCS team and the year after they started their incredible run of success.
I also remember thinking Michigan would never lose to Ohio State more than a couple times every 10 years. They always seemed "soft", and then of course they knocked John Navarre in the mouth and I don't really care to recall the rest. But that first Tressel team lost a lot of early games including a game to Illinois, I think, dont quote me on that.
I also think that this team will get better each and every game, and back at the beginning of the season I thought "Michigan will need some luck to start 3-2" and to be honest if their was a reset button Michigan could have just as easily won those games against Notre Dame and Utah. I also think that Threet will probably be next year's starter as well, so its important to rally behind him, and in a wierd way he kind of reminds me of a young Tom Brady (maybe I am being way to glass half full, but that's how I see it)
Sorry for the rambling ... more just venting ... the best is yet to come and Michigan will be dominant once again! GO BLUE
