It's time to bring the mustache back. We had great success and prosperity under the careful and awesome guidance of our mustaches. Michigan shot out of the canon with a 2-0 start and began a giddy September. But oh since the mustaches have been shaved... our fortunes haven't faired well without our collective follicular fortitude.
He we sit, sirs, smooth faced and 5-3. Our euphoric start has deflated, the echoes of 2008 calling out, beckoning us to its shadowy recesses.
We will not lose hope so easily. For we have a plan to combat the lurking evil ahead -- a simple, three step plan of action:
Step One: Grow a beard in November
Step Two: Shave it down to a mustache on Nov. 21st
Step Three: Wear that mustache proudly.
This time we call upon the powers of the 'stache to bring down the dark forces of the Vest. This year, with the help of our mustaches, we will snap the streak against OSU. It's the Mustache vs. the Buckstache, bitches! Come November 21st, it's so f'ing on.
And maybe the facial hair you're cultivating along the way will lend some good will in the weeks leading up to the showdown...
