I mostly agree with you on this one. As infuriating as all of this may be, we have to come to the realization that it is completely out of our hands. In reality, it is out of everyone's hands. What's done is done. I believe that all of these allegations are truly BS and that nothing major will come out of it. But that will not stop this from being an issue that is brought up both by the media and opposing fans for the foreseeable future. Just like we have had to deal with the fallout of losing to App State over that past couple of years, we will too have to deal with all of this.
One of the most unfortunate things I have seen over the past couple of days is Michigan "fans" on ESPN and other mass media sites who have begun to turn on RR and the program as a whole. That hurts me the most out of all of this, and those are the individuals (more than anyone else) that I wish I could unleash my fury on. As a fan base we need to rally together at a time like this, not the opposite. As Michigan fans we hold ourselves to a higher standard and we need to continue that trend now. Nothing we can say or do will change what happens as a result of this over the next couple of years. But I for one know that nothing will change how I feel about the Maize and Blue.
After two days of near depression, I woke up this morning with a renewed excitement for the upcoming season. I am anxious to see the boys out there on the field and to begin putting some of this behind us. No more speculation or retaliation. Lets just play a game. And for those of you out there looking for a release for all the anger over this fiasco, use it to make you root harder than ever for the team we all love so much!
