In a lot of ways this year feels like some sort of exorcism. Everyone is flat out broke down, rambling, and overly accusative. And I mean that from the fan's, coaches, media, and players perspectives. There are certain players who are not on par however. And NO amount of coaching will change that. Some of these players, of all nationalities, have shown bad learned habits that they are not changing. It's been an awkward dating process. Rich and staff have been made to feel like some guy who is trying to date your mom and the kids are all confused and bitching. Not only does Rich deserve a break, so does McGee, Smith, AND YES SHAFER. Ask anyone who coaches football about the hell they get week to week from parents who know everything. I'm tired of Michigan fans overly fixating on just ONE place for all the blame and anger. It's never one thing or one person or one offensive formation. NEVER. It's kind of sad to think that of 110,000 people in those stands, of all the haters that inhabit the place. I just looked up the right and theres a post on MGOBOARD here entitled,"Texas should fire Muschamp." What a joke. Maybe it's because Michigan has been bogged down in a 50 month like recession and Michigan football is their only escape. Who knows, who cares. I hear your words EZMIKE but give it time. You at least phrased your concern in the form of a question. But give it time. I at first thought like you but now see this all as good medicine for all of Michigan Football.
