The guy wrote a severely emo piece about his own unrealistic expectations and social shortcomings, but he focused too much of it on Michigan. I don't know why he took the shot at Michigan at the end of the article; he even notes that he had the same problems at his second college and has no enduring friendships from either school. That wasn't a worthwhile read -- it was both depressing and annoying.
In other words, it fits Deadspin. This helped me remember why I normally ignore links to Deadspin.
