As you probably know, the spartys love to cite the fact that our fan base contains a lot of non-alumni. Somehow, they view this as a negative, and view "Wal-Mart Wolverines" as below them.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Michigan fans out there that did not attend UM. Whether its the way you grew up, or your time at UM hospital, your support of and contribution to Michigan athletics is invaluable. The fact that you did not attend UM does not detract whatsoever from your knowledge of the game, loyalty, dedication, or passion. Our ability to function as a football power is based on your support.
Once again, thank you. And +1 for all non-alumni Wolverines.
