As we wait for our bowl game selection in the midst of all these negative posts regarding recruits or coaches, I think it prudent to remember what it truly means to be a Michigan fan.
First an foremost, its bigger than any one man or recruit. Its being part of the biggest alumni association in the world. It's watching a home football game with more fans than any team in the country. It's being part of a program and University that's about integrity. I'm proud to know that when people talk about my school, I don't have to worry about what potentially is going on behind the scenes. The running of a clean program. We asked for more six years ago and the impact was significant. Now, however, I can honestly say I feel like things are being done the right way. No I don't like the record but I respect my school and my team and will support the leaders that our university has hired to right the ship.
I have no better memory than singing the fight song with the likes of Bo, Dierdorf, and many other Michigan alums in the hotel bar after the Rose Bowl win in 1998. That is the glory we will return to.
Once you become a Michigan Man you don instant credibility and respect throughout the country, not just as a football player, but as man. Doors are opened because you are from Michigan. Go Blue!
