I thought I would take a couple minutes to explain why I started posting on MgoBlog. Mostly, it was to just see how Michigan fans were reacting to the upcoming game with Bama. My other reason, was to follow recruiting from another view point. I'm a huge recruiting nerd, so I find those things interesting. My Dad went to grad school at Michigan, and he always wanted me to go at some point. I didn't, choosing instead to save my Dad a considerable amount of money, and going to UofA. I've always respected Michigan's program, and you guys have done nothing to refute that thought. And while I don't get into the hockey/softball/and kitten pictures, the site gets a great thumbs up from me.
I've despised Ohio State since I was a kid, since we went to the 95 citrus bowl between Bama and Ohio State. Their fans were really obnoxious, and these two grown men from Ohio made fun of my Derrick Thomas Bama shirt. (The most prized possession I own, is a jersey signed by Derrick himself, so he's a big deal to me.) My Dad and Uncle being your typical quick tempered southerners, quickly asked them if they wanted to "Continue the conversation outside the stadium".
I'm actually in Michigan until May right now for work as well, so it's cool to get fully involved in all things Michigan. I'm happy to talk about any questions y'all may have about Alabama, not that I'm an expert, but I'm happy to try.
Some important notes to know before you classify me as a fan.
-I'm not a fan of over signing
-I love Nick Saban, but I don't approve of the methods in which the SEC uses to succeed
-Yes, Bear Bryant is God in Alabama
-I graduated from the University of Alabama in 08
-Yes, I understand my fellow Bama fans are eccentric, but at their heart, they really love college football.
Thanks for having me, guys. If this is too off topic, please delete it. I just wanted to set the record straight about why I started posting here, because some were commenting on it.
