Like most Michigan fans, I was really upset following our loss yesterday. Losing to your little brother sucks. And what sucks worse is we have to wait another year to play again. However, in reading some posts on this board and others related to Michigan sports, some of you guys are completely losing it! Lets bring it back. The season is far from over!
We are through the first 6 games of our schedule at 5-1, something that most fans would have taken in a heartbeat prior to the season. Our defense has been exposed in a horrible way, but our offense, despite their lack of execution today, still is going to put up a lot of points. We turned our our worse performance today. Thats the case with any offense. Sometimes you just don't click. It sucks it came today, but in all honesty we stopped ourselves.
Looking at the remaining schedule, Illinois, Purdue, and Penn State look like very win-able games. Thats 8 wins! And who wouldn't have taken 8-4 before the season began. If we take care of business, Iowa and Wisconsin will be tough, but both teams are beatable and both games are at home. Our ceiling is still 9-3.
Far too many people are jumping off the band wagon. Fine. Just leave. You probably weren't on board to start the season anyways. Its easy to be a fan when your QB goes for 200 and 200, but I highly doubt that this team has thrown the towel in, so why are we? It's a little harder to be a Michigan fan today, but at the end of the day, I'd rather be a disappointed Michigan fan than a Sparty any day. The season is not over, fellow Wolverines. This team will not implode like last year, so as fans, lets hold it together as well. Show your true colors. Mine are going to be maize and blue.
