Okay. The jury is back on our D, hence our team. Three straight teams have deliberated and have come back in unison. WE WERE A FRAUD THE FIRST 5 GAMES. Exposed. Is that a bad thing? Not entirely. Maybe not at al.
Let's say we had pulled out a couple of those games.Suppose we ended up the year at 9-3. Our defense still sucks. Would DB or RR be forced to make a change from what we all suspected- that GERG is not a very good DC- to bring in a championship calibre DC who can run his own show? No. And if RR doesn't jump on board with that way of thinking he will be gone I would think.
One thing we aren't gonna do is muddle along and be a fraud. We suck bigtime on D and the fact that even our great offense can't overcoime that is good in the long run I believe. Losing makes it unacceptable. Winning some 45-41 games would just cloud the picture. We have clarity. Winning those games would just delude RR to the fact that the status quo will get it done. GERG has accomplished here precisely what he accomplished at Syracuse and I'd wager precisely what he'll accomplish if he stays any longer. No way can his defense win a Big 10 title. He doesn't bring out the best in his players.
Fire GERG now or after the season- looks like the latter is the only likely scenario based on presser comments- and Michigan can be a championship calibre team under RR if he learns from this If he doesn't learn from this then he doesn't deserve to be the coach of a Michigan football team.
Don't get me wrong, this losing shit is getting old. Games are torturous to watch. I'm just trying to see some light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe losing now will be better in the long haul. I will pull for us to win every game the rest of the way, but if we lose all or most of them it changes nothing. If we win most of them while giving up massive points it changes nothing. GERG has got to go.
