I know similar posts have been posted already and I don't care...I am disgusted.
You see it all the time. A team is on top and fans come out of friggin cracks in the road and then they disappear as soon as the team drops off. I didn't think Michigan was like that. We have had hard times as we all know but we have seemed to stick together through those bad times. Until Saturday that is.
I can honestly say that I have never been so disgusted in my life as I was on Saturday to see that much red in The Big House. I live in Florida and I had to watch this disgusting sight on TV and I was actually embarassed of our fans. How in the hell do we let that happen in our stadium? We looked as bad as Notre Dame when Nebraska came to town. It was sickening to see.
We are down right now there is no question about it but we will be back. There is absolutely no excuse for our fans to abandon the team like they did on Saturday especially during the biggest recruiting week of the year for us. Would you come to Michigan after you saw how their fans left them when they needed them the most? Are you kidding me?
I see other posts on here trying to say that it is an optical illusion or some shit like that and you know damn well that isn't true. It was an embarassing amount of Red in our House because our fans abandoned the team and gave up hope for our players who actually played pretty well against a far better team.
I don't care if you like the coach or not you don't do that to a team that you supposedly love. What kind of character does that show? You are no better than any other fan out there acting like that. This is when the team needs its fans more than ever man they need our support and instead we sell our tickets to the enemy and allow them to pack in there and create noise levels equal to what we could muster. When you can hear their ohio chant on TV in Florida at our house then there is something seriously wrong.
This is not the fan base that I grew up with but then I guess that is because we were always winning. This is bullshit and anyone that sold their tickets and sold out the team should be ashamed and should sell their tickets moving forward because we don't need you. How are we supposed to turn it around with this kind of support.
Sorry to those that are faithful fans...this doesn't apply but I am just shocked at what I saw on Saturday.
