Don't know if this is Board worthy, but it really pissed me off, especially since it was coming from the Redneck Riviera.
Just read the "What it takes to be consistently successful in College Football" post
A quote from the article:
" Michigan is similar to Notre Dame in the fact that they have tough admission standards and were basically run by a coach who hasn’t surprisingly found work since being fired. I don’t see Michigan rising to elite status again and that seems to be fine by Michigan fans since the only thing they care about is one game a year (OSU). "
Is this wrong on so many levels?
1. While our admission standards are probably tougher than some lower schools, like, say, Florida State...I don't think that they've gotten in the way of our program like they would at somewhere like, say, Stanford. Exhibit A - We admitted Carson Butler, Cissoko etc.
2. Lloyd Carr was fired? Didn't know that. And it's a damn shame he hasn't found work again yet...hahaha
3. We're not returning to elite status again? Would've said the same thing about Bama a few years ago, or Florida during the Zook area. Or OSU during the Cooper era. Miami before Coker. USC before Caroll. Or Florida State during Bowden era!
4. The only thing we care about is OSU? While it's the biggest game, no doubt, there are higher aspirations in Ann Arbor than the Buckeyes.
