Look, I don't care if I'm being fucking Little Orphan Annie, Pollyanna, whatever, but this team is so fucking close to getting over the hump and I really think one decent goddamn win against a decent Big Ten team - not Indiana, not Bowling Green, not these goddamn doormats - one friggin' win is all it'll take to push this team over the hump.
They keep getting so close and having it taken away by the football gods. Oh, you think you're going to have a decent cornerback this year? Nah, let's fuck up Woolfolk's ankle. Oh, you think you get to go against a crappy quarterback for once in your life? Nah, let's send Sparty to fuck up Martin's leg so they can just hand the ball off to Royster 10,000 times. Hey, that's cute, Rich Rod laid into the defense and got them fired up and they made a stop and now you're back in the game with a touchdown. Let's just have the kick returner not have the ball so there's no way for your coverage man to see that when he hits him. FFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU
I'm pissed the fuck off and it's not at RR or GERG or Mouton even though he likes to cover the receiver that's already covered by the cornerback instead of the one in his zone. I'm pissed the fuck off because I watch other football games every week and the only goddamn one in which a team never, ever makes a mistake is the one we're playing in. And the only goddamn team where the only guy to get hurt is the one guy we need is Michigan. One game where a single fucking break goes our way would be all it takes for the ball to roll the other way. Don't care if I sound like the blind optimist.
