The Michigan fight song and four other reasons to avoid Internet voting
I was hoping this would be a thing about why you shouldn't ever get taken in by a site that posts a fanpoll asking which school has the best fight song of all time, or the best helmet of all time, or the best rivalry of all time.
It's over. We win all of those things, as much as you can win something that's so subjective. No amount of clicking on an ESPN fan poll in favor of some unimaginitive rah rah words put to a protestent hymnal will trump the opinion of Sousa on the subject of best composition for a triumphural march; no CBS poll can make drawing horns on cooler than painting along the padding and stitches of the 1930s model; and no amount of new registrants on SI will make an intrastate rivarly in one of the poorest, least educated and least populous places in America something that more people care about than the two Midwest titans.
"one of the poorest, least educated and least populous places in America something that more people care about than the two Midwest titans."
Isn't the first part of your sentence describing one of those titans?
