That's because you've never seen a team with the OL depth/talent/experience issues that Team 134 has. These seeds were sown several years ago, and Michigan is having to reap what was sown, no matter how bitter. Thankfully, however, new seeds (and a lot of them) were sown in Hoke's first real class, and in the 2013 class. Those seeds are going to take some time to flower, but we're already seeing some fruits with a true freshman and a RS freshmen starting on the OL. That is so exceedingly rare that when someone calls it "bullshit" or an "excuse" it shows just how little they actually understand about the game of football, and what it takes to build a winning program.
"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
