Now before I begin, let me just say this is not a critique of any poster on here. I understand the frustration just as well as anyone else here and can certainly sympathize with the way people have vented. I guess this is just my personal way of venting so if you need to ignore or neg, go ahead, but hopefully this helps at least one UM fan other than me feel a little better.
I have watched the boards the past two days sink into a depressive state. Brian on TWIS listed the board titles, we won the Tears of Unfathomable Sadness. There is a board post below trying to argue that we are becoming ND. But we’re not and we won’t ever be. We’re Michigan.
As my friends and I walked back up Hill St in a slightly depressed state after the Ioss to Iowa, an old guy driving by yelled the six words that this fan base needs to remember, “Keep your heads up, you’re Michigan”. I won’t pretend that problems aren’t there. There is a possibility that this coach won’t succeed at Michigan, that Brandon will choose to go in another direction. There is even the possibility that Brandon will keep RR and THAT will turn out to be the wrong decision. It doesn’t really matter. I encourage everyone on this board to look up the Illinois 2007 ABC intro (if one can stomach the look of douche Mallett in a Michigan uniform). “The past can be an anchor seeing you through hard times”. Now I can’t foresee the future, I can’t predict if and when we will get back to regularly competing for and winning Big Ten Titles, but what I can do is say that we’re still Michigan, we’re still the Leaders and Best, and I wouldn’t want to be a fan of any other University.
Beat the Illini!!
