So much for being a superfan.
SuperFan = SuperDick?
a couple years ago and i've never stopped loathing that kevin smith looking douche.
super fan is all about being THE SUPER FAN. it's all about his costume, his cowbell, his enthusiasm, blah blah blah. Michigan football exists to make him feel good. it's ridiculous, self-centered, annoying behavior. his whining is as pathetic as Valenti's MAKE PLAYS rant where he compares his "effort" to "get people on their feet" to what the guys on the field do.
You don't even know the guy, yet you felt compelled to post multiple times now about how much you hate him. Including the always hilariously pathetic internet fight challenge.
but not for the reasons you think
I wasn't all that upset by the loss, knowing one would come eventually and that losing to MSU would (hopefully) light a fire under our asses.
This sentiment generally seemed to be echoed by the MGoNation...
This guy is like our version of the crazy Sooner Brian posted at TSB...
he didn't break his ankle jumping off of the bandwagon...
His bandwagon rides low and slow for easy egress and ingress. Just give it a week.
I agree, I hope he didn't break his ankle, just his effing neck. What an ass.
"All they did was go out and lay an egg. I expect better. I demand better!" Hey fat ass, this is a really young team. They are not going to be consistent. Crap happens. Get over yourself. And ditch the damn costume, you're a grown man.
the name "Superfan" is very hypocritical. Besides, everyone knew Brian was the real Superfan anyways.
thank god. maybe he'll finally disappear
guy is a tool
I think he should change his name to "Super Bandwagon-jumper."
Superfan epitomizes everything that is wrong about so-called "fans" who jump ship at the first sign of adversity. Superfan has proven that he doesn't have as much courage in his entire mind, body, and soul as Tate Forcier does in his little finger.
typing all in CAPS and peppering in a few $ signs.
There's not much air between his position and the loser poole1dan.
why would he put a $ over the 'i' in BS. it doesn't even make sense
Starts off with "The Spirit of Michigan: It is based upon a deathless loyalty to Michigan ..." and then launches into "The honeymoon is over ...".
Dude should wait 24 hours before posting.
That guy is a complete douche bag. Wow.
There's only three people I've run into on the Internet that I'll risk being embarrassed by and actually, honestly, swear on my life meeting in the parking lot for a throw down.
1. GSimms. I'm coming for you
2. Poole1Dan, because I have no problem fighting the mentally handicapped.
3. Superfan. I've hated you and your kind since I was a small child.
I used to think you were a huge douche, but I can see now that you're basically just a dickier version of me. I'd be honored to throw down with you every day. Also, you hit my thoughts exactly on Poole1Dan. If I ever got the chance to meet that guy, I'd have no problem kicking him in the face. Hell, that might actually increase his brain power!
i'm only a douche to people who deserve it. like super fan.
What about Lisa Horne?
Or was that situation just sexual tension?
Don't those three guys have to wait behind Ellipses Man?
I do think he was first to issue you that particular challenge.
Anyone got some spare valium to calm this "fan" down.
Michigan "fans" get a bad image of being arrogant when we win, and whiners when we lose. If he wants to be a super fan, he shouldn't be perpetuating this image.
Another armchair QB/coach. I didn't hear any suggestions from him how it should have been done differently.
Keep ringing your cowbell, and wearing your mask. Useless.
For the last month, I've had ND fans whining to me about the officiating in our game against them, rather than just sucking it up and admitting that if Evans turns around & catches the ball, the game ends. Great game of football, we won, eat it. Their constant whining is a disgrace to the school & the fanbase. Please, let's not be like that.
I can smell what he's steppin in, he just went too far. He's rolling around in it, smearing it all over his face and styling his hair with it. I can understand being upset over a perceived lack of focus or intensity, but too say it in all caps is uncalled for.
The team is young. Young players are notoriously inconsistent. Don't confuse it for a lack of intensity.
a few thousand clicks by posting that link here. Was that really necessary?
I don't thinking he's getting paid from the site.
well then, if he were, I'd say Poole1Dan is actually a millionaire.
Hey, Superfan, UM hasn't won a consensus NC in football since 1948 - 61 years ago. How about a few paragraphs on that for our enjoyment?
SuperFan is just a less intellectual Johnny Spirit.
And to think that a mere month ago he was trying to lead the way to show support for Rodriguez.
I suppose the chant after the National Anthem should have been:
Rich-Rod-Ri-Guez! (clap! clap! clapclapclap!)
(but if you lose, I'll whine like the jelly-spined supporter that I am)
I thought Ohio State was our biggest rival.
disagreement and douchery for noobs here. People always wonder about getting negged, and here it is: you can generally criticize the staff for a specific move or game as long as you have rationale, but if you stoop to "UNFORGIVEABLE" and this guys' schtick, the negs will flow.
I heard from a reliable source close to the program that Superfan has links to Al-Qaeda.
He's dumping on Rodriguez, not Michigan. He's jumping off of the coach's bandwagon, not the team's. There's a huge difference. I don't agree with him, but let's not deny that there are some pretty troubling signs from the last couple of games that don't bode well for the future of the program. (although the "RAWWRRR! FIRE RODRIGUEZ NOW" business is definitely over the top.)
Please elaborate on these "troubling signs" for the "future of the program". Are they any of the following?
Sign 1. We have not played well on defense? This is debatable given our talent level (which can be traced back to Carr), and one could argue we've coached around our deficiencies on D.
Sign 2. Our offense sputtered (in one game only)? There will be growing pains and our offense will progress in fits and starts. The other games demonstrate the efficacy of the offense.
Sign 3. An article of dubious credibility was written by a known Rodriguez detractor? This subject has been beaten down enough.
Sign 4. ?????
You suggest that the program is going in the wrong direction when the evidence seems to suggest otherwise.
Sign 1 -- Our defensive talent is still at least average or above average on defense. Boubacar Cissoko was the #1 ranked player in the state of Michigan in 2008 and he had offers from other big time recruiteres like LSU and Tennessee. There are numerous four-star players that are either showing mediocrity or not even getting on the field. Guys like Smith, Mouton, Patterson, Fitzgerald, Williams, and Demens. There are also lots of three star guys look Woolfok and Ezeh, who weren't as highly recruited, but aren't chopped liver either. And then, of course, Carr left behind studs like Warren and Graham. This is not bad recruiting. You want to see some really shitty recruiting? Look at Iowa's recent lists of commits. They would kill to have our recruiting. So would Northwestern and probably five or four dozen other teams in the country who have inferior recruiting to us but a much better defense. Robinson looks like a good hire, but the fact that he has no tools with which to do anything besides manage bleeding is pretty unsettling. By the way, if you didn't like Carr's last few years of defensive recruiting, then you must really hate Rodriguez's 2010 class. But I'll give Rodriguez a pass for this year's class since it's probably directly related to 3-9. Even if he gets a pass for it though, it's one more year before the defense gets some help.
Sign 2 -- Our offense definitely "sputtered". Now that's an understatement. How does "completely blown to smithereens for 54 minutes" sound? Keep in mind that we have yet to face an even above average defense. Our offense has shown improvement beyond the unimaginably bad levels of 2008, but it hasn't proven anything other than that yet. In the meantime, Western Michigan has proven to be much more terrible than anyone thought. They are a bottom feeding MAC team. So is Eastern Michigan. Those are the only two teams that we have outplayed. We got outplayed by Notre Dame and Indiana at home, and then we got dominated by Michigan State.
I've said my piece. And just to reiterate, I'm not a "fire RichRod" guy. Long term, I think we're in good hands, but I'm still pretty nervous about it, and I'm going to be until we get a couple of signature wins and maybe a nine-win season.
1. The fact that we are playing three walk-ons completely refutes your point vis-a-vis our prior recruiting and talent level. That is a proof positive that we did not recruit adequately. There was also already a post that MichiganDan did regarding our recruiting versus Iowa. At best, we have similar talent, and we have had three coordinators in three years. Why am I sill arguing this point?
2. We were outplayed by Notre Dame? Really? And let's not forget that both the Indiana and MSU game were after Molk's injury.
I guess it's all about perspective and looking at the team and taking into account certain qualifiers and nuances, but I just think that you are extrapolating inaccurately.
"The fact that we are playing three walk-ons completely refutes your point vis-a-vis our prior recruiting and talent level. "
What? No it doesn't. Good recruiting means beating other big time programs for big time recruits and Carr DID do this in his past few years. At the very least, Carr's level of recruiting doesn't remotely explain how bad the defense is. As I explained earlier, lots of teams that play better defense than Michigan would have killed to get the likes of Boubacar Cissoko. JT Floyd had at least decent competing offers from the likes of Miami, Tennessee, and South Carolina. Blaming our abysmal cornerback situation (and the bad defense, in general) on Carr's recruiting is just absurd.
One example does not a trend make. Cissoko was highly recruited, I grant you. But getting one good recruit does not mean that we recruited well for the defense as a whole, as evidenced by the fact that we are now playing three walk-ons. Also, the two players you are citing as evidence of our recruiting prowess are a sophomore and redshirt freshman, respectively. If we had recruited appropriately during Carr's tenure, we would have upper classmen manning these positions. There is no debate on this point.
which is that going by recruiting rankings, if you assume for the sake of argument that they are predictive of results, we--so far-- are not playing to that level, So far, Mouton has to be labelled a mild disappointment, along with Cissoko and Floyd. It's also true that other B!0 teams with lower recruiting rankings than us are better statistically than us. I do agree that recruiting slipped with Carr from where it used to be--hard to argue with that IMO-- but that doesn't necessarily = cupboard is bare. The cupboard was neglected and in need to catch-up shopping.
wouldn't you go with Lloyd? Rodriguez has never had significant talent advantage in his coaching career. The only way to have success in those circumstances is to significantly out-coach and out-teach.
Yes recruiting rankings should be predictive -- in the long run. But here we are talking about young players not yet performing up to their potential, which like yeah, that's par for the course. Further, those with lower recruiting rankings probably have more upper classmen and therefore more experienced players. So I would expect them to play better than us right now.
playing time. Defensive recruiting at Michigan has not been good for a long time and it's evident when we have tons of younger guys pushing for playing time. That just shouldn't happen.
I don't see how anyone can not look at RR's resume compare it to resumes of previous Michigan fires and not realize "Oh wow so this is what a competent application looks like".
To put it another way Michigan since Bo had not gone out and really recruited for the best coach they just hired family/close friends who knew the business sure, but didn't have the resumes of other applicants. Now we get a guy who has a great resume, has been a winner everywhere and you're afraid?
I don't know how he didn't stroke out after last season.
Learn from the loss and move on.
He offered to paint my face; I politely declined.
He later went off to talk about how the people he had hooked a ride with to State College had ditched him at an Ohio Turnpike rest area but he managed to find a new group of people to ride with to the game.
In light of what a pest he was coming off as, I thought to myself, "I can't blame them, really; but it was kind of a dick move to ditch him." Seriously though, how much of a pest do you have to be to get ditched my classmates/fellow fans?
Everytime I see him on TV, I think of that encounter and what a tool he was. Thanks to this link, I can upgrade him to full-on douche.
oh come on it's a joke.
Wasn't this a given?
Damn. And just a few days too late for TWIS.
Looks like he overreacted. I'm sure he'll change tack soon.
I've seen that guy on TV multiple times and every time I cringe.
his arms folded the times you saw him?
It's either him standing with his arm folded like people actually care that he's there or banging the cow bell.
I have Phila. Eagles season tickets and there are plenty of fans that get dressed up for the game that are way more douchey than he is.
For some reason he just really irks me.
YES. There are like 15 guys wearing capes here!
Let me preface (total neg-dodge) this with yes, I agree with Dex, Brodie, et al., that Superfan's post-MSU post-mortem post was over the top.
It was, after all, a genuine rant.*
Parents, help me out here: when a child goes off on a rant, do you:
- Listen carefully to the argument your child is making
- Pay no attention to the actual words, and focus on what could be making the child overreact
My guess - and this is just from remembrance of childhood - is that it's (2). By ranting, the point the ranter is trying to make is not the laundry list of complaints actually being uttered, but that some impetus has driven the child to spew forth in shouting tones (or caps-locked blogging).
What was the impetus here? Losing to Michigan State.
Is losing to Michigan State a rant-worthy impetus?
If you live here, then yes, I think it's worth a rant. I would recommend conducting said rant among friends, or better yet, in a personal diary. But it's not like sharing it with the public is useless. Mr. Superfan is irate. He wants it to be known that he is irate. That is ALL that should be taken from his rant.
And I hope it is taken. I hope that Rich Rodriguez realizes that this is a rivalry bigger for us in-staters than any on the schedule but the rivalry-that-is-as-important-as-the-rest-of-the-schedule-combined.
Bo had to learn this, too. In some interview or other** that I first saw in the late '90s and has since been repeated on several M-centric BTN specials, he made mention of the fact that he lost to Michigan State his first year, and boy did he hear it from the Michigan faithful, and that made him respect that rivalry.
If you consider last year a free pass, as Superfan notes he does in his blog, then consider this loss as Rich Rod's wake-up call to the importance of the Michigan State rivalry, at least to in-staters like me (and Superfan).
That doesn't make ranting okay, by the way, or at least not on this forum. MGoBlog is no more the place for a rant than an open-house for your buddy's little brother where lots of your buddy's friends and family and family friends and buddy's fiance's friends are standing around trying to watch the Tigers and Lions (not to point any fingers) and converse about things like how sucky the rabbi is at temple.***
I don't have an opinion that much on Superfan, except I think a guy who wears batman mask and carries a cowbell and gets fans excited during Michigan games for 15 years or whatever -- even if only for self-serving reasons -- has earned the right to spout off on his own blog without everyone jumping on him. I wouldn't echo his sentiment, but his salient point, which is that RR probably needs to adjust how seriously he takes this game, is one that I think has some merit.
* This 2006 column by William Safire is recommended reading for anyone using this term.
** It's the one where he's got a wide-brimmed hat on, and I think a yellow sweater and a beat-up leather jacket, and the inside of Michigan Stadium is in the background.
*** I know you read this blog, asshole, and yes, I'm still pissed.
"I don't have an opinion that much on Superfan, except I think a guy who wears batman mask and carries a cowbell and gets fans excited during Michigan games for 15 years or whatever -- even if only for self-serving reasons -- has earned the right to spout off on his own blog without everyone jumping on him."
These are just the actions of a self-serving piece of crap. Its not about cheering for the team (he's usually standing silently with his arms crossed, like he observing an execution), it's about getting his obese mug on TV. Nothing more. Nothing less. It's all about Superfan.
And doing something asinine for a long period of time doesn't give one greater degree of credibility.
"I don't have an opinion that much on Superfan, except I think a guy who wears batman mask and carries a cowbell and gets fans excited during Michigan games for 15 years or whatever -- even if only for self-serving reasons -- has earned the right to spout off on his own blog without everyone jumping on him."
See -- I agree with this. The guy shouldn't be criticized for not being a true fan because he rants about the coach. He obvoiusly is passionate about Michigan sports and he shows his support in every game. He has at least earned the benefit of the doubt, kinda long a long time winning coach who has one bad season.
What I have seen is a guy who dresses up and then leads the popular cowbell-based "Go Blue" cheer or tries to start the wave and pretty much does it no matter how good or bad the team is. Is that self-serving? As far as I can tell, he doesn't make any money off of what he does and few if any of us could identify the guy if we walked past him in the street. So what does he get out of it besides bragging that he's "Superfan"? It's just bravado and it looks like his act is somewhat tongue-in-cheek. Big deal. Did the guy keep coming to basketball games through the dark years and did he show up for all the games last year? If so then I don't think that the guy deserves all of this vitriol. I have never met the guy so I can't comment on anything else that has been said.
Over the last few years he's been at a few MBball games, but not all. Though, once you graduate and leave the Maize Rage and move on to the real world, attending all basketball games is not exactly an easy feat.
Every Michigan game I go to I attend Superfan's tailgate and he is very accommodating and fun to be around. He's intense and this website shows that intensity. I know his rant was over the top and I do not agree with it; as my brother said: "It's a bit melodramatic". But he's still a good guy.
Following on Hemlock's train, I also have attended a number of tailgates with Superfan, and while I dont know him personally he has always came off as a good guy. Yes the rant was a bit much, maybe he was a having a bad day. Sadly he took his feelings on the net probably a bit too quickly, but these things do happen. I would caution everyone to remember that sometimes emotion gets out of hand and you write stuff you wish you could take back. I have made it a rule in my life never to write a nasty email to someone for just that reason. I figure I can usually give it time and things will often take care of themselves...
Anyway, just remember most if not all of us have written things we sometimes regret on the net. Cut the guy some slack and try to chill out just a bit about the rantings of someone who loves Michigan football just like you...
and I was extremely mad at the loss, but I know enough about football to realize that the loss is not solely on RR and I won't write him off because of it. There were numerous errors that happened during the game, errors by players who normally do not make these kinds of errors, as well as some of the "youth" showing up on our team. There were many very catchable balls dropped, even by guys like Koger who usually has excellent hands and concentration. There were also fumbles and running lanes missed by a few players. A lot of these things were just random things that can be explained by either a lack of concentration or a player just trying to do too much and be a "hero." An example of this is Stonum's fumble. You can't blame the kid's effort for trying to get the extra few yards near the goal line, but in doing so he fumbled the ball away. That was a huge play for State. But he made up for it with his long TD a bit later.
As for the defense, we know there isn't much depth and some talent is missing at key positions. I think that guys get frustrated when things aren't going well and they try to play outside of their abilities and overrun plays or make a big hit, but forget to wrap up. These things happen when you're losing and you're trying to make a big play. I think we should realize that a lot of players were trying too hard, especially once MSU had a lead and time was winding down, and you tend to forget some of the basic fundamentals of the game. It was also the first road game of the season and we were missing key players forcing that depth issue to be a concern (i.e. Molk, Williams, Cissoko--benched.)
Again, I was as mad as anyone at the loss, but to write off the coach after one loss is utterly ridiculous.
I hate the idea of a self-proclaimed "super fan" anyways. Though "not all fans are created equal," there most definitely shouldn't be such a self-admiring position like "super fan."
he's never seen a Michigan team go into East Lansing and play relatively poor before, and Michigan State play about 3 notches above themselves.........that never happens.
Was that he said that MSU was the most important game to win this year? Really? I think I'd rather beat Iowa, Wisconsin, PSU, Ohio State and ND over MSU. Beating MSU does nothing for Michigan's reputation (losing to them sucks and makes us look stupid).
All streaks have to come to an end and the MSU streak since the 60's was another one that would eventually fall. It's absurd to think that a streak like that will never be broken or that when it is that said coach "doesn't get it".
There is one game that I want to win more than any other every year and it is the Ohio State University.
Beating MSU does not preclude winning against OSU. I sort of see what that superfan dude was trying to say. Our guys simply did not have the intensity and part of that responsibility is the HC's.
I didn't see a single play (trickeration or scheming wise) that we didn't see before.
He went way overboard and sounded melodramatic, but I don't think you can absolve the HC of all responsibility for the loss.
The fact that he had put it on his "superfan" site is what makes him a dick.
All streaks have to come to an end
this sounds eerily similar to what that police officer who stopped me during the naked mile 2004 said.
that ALL the streaks came in an end in a year's time... RIMSHOT!
But seriously, I think, at least with the most important game point I see what he's saying. Yes, OSU would be a bigger win...but not very likely to happen. I was really looking at MSU as the key game of the season. Go 5-0, take no flax, have no "decline streak" or anything if you lose to Iowa...then the Hawkeyes are probably the least cried about loss in recent memory. Beat Del St 6-1, mostly in a bowl, with Ill, Purdue, and maybe Wiskey to boost the record to 7, 8 or 9, and the option of possibly pulling the upset on PSU or OSU. Overachieving, beat 2 out of 3 major rivals, go to a decent Bowl, take back control of the State.
I get what you're saying that a win over Iowa, PSU or Wisconsin does more for you...but you can't "not win" without that being a loss. And a loss to MSU this year is bad. As anyone in the State of Michigan can attest too. There's so much crap that has to be put up with currently, that I won't list hear because you know all too well yourself, that it elevated this game, at least temporarily. You don't want to 0-2 vs. any major rivals. And Dantonio...? Ugh. People were expecting a split these two games. But just expecting (and hoping) it was beat MSU and lose understandably to Iowa on the road at night.
There was only one other time I can think MSU was more important than Notre Dame (and that one year it WAS more important than OSU even) - 2002. And that beat down was everything we needed and wanted. And while not manned to the level to smoke anybody, I think people were looking at least wanting to WIN the game to those near levels.
(And yes, the rest is over the top, but then I might have spouted off the same dumb stuff if I had posted something somewhere immediately after the game...of course, I was smart enough not to for 24 hours...)
Scroll down a bit and check out ten paragraphs of completely unhinged ranting about Lloyd Carr.
BONUS FEATURE: The stuff right above the Carr post where he talks about "people recognize him" and therefore he has to "be careful" with what he says.
Because when I think powerful, objective, rational thinking I think 400 jelly filled pounds of mid-30s man child dressed in a cape and batman mask banging a cowbell at a college football game. VOTE THIS MAN TO CONGRESS!
Too many caps clicking on that link...my eyes hurt. Damn you, Dex. Or better yet, DAMN YOU DEX!!!!!
Man oh man, perusing that literary godsend was like unearthing a fossilized skeleton of Homo eroticus:
"GOD THERE IS NOTHING THAT I LOVE BETTER THAN A HARD... DOM...!"
"HOLY CRAP! THAT WAS SUCH A GREAT DAMN HIT THAT I WENT NUTS AND STOPPED PAYING ATTENTION TO BREAST[s]...!"
"THAT WAS AN OUTSTANDING[,] SLOBBER[y] ... C ... OCK!!!"
"YOU BETTER STRAP IT UP AND COME HARD!"
"I'M SICK OF ... BUSH"
"I'M ... GOING CRAZY ...BLOW[ing] A ... COACH...!"
Well, I just couldn't resist. Honestly I've got nothing against this guy. So he's a bit hyper? Big deal. Those who take serious offense... how do you really distinguish yourselves? Certainly not by zeal, but by prejudice.
Doesn't mean we can't have a good laugh at his expense.
Didn't really take the Yost quote to heart, did he?
wasn't enough of a reason to bag on him look at his facebook profile pic:
someone has been working out in Imagination Land.
When I type "lol", usually it means I find something funny. But I have zero shame in admitting that when I read your comment, I actually legitimately laughed out loud.
Two points I would like to make.
2.The website is like a time travel back to 1996 when the internet sucked.
This guy is an extreme d-bag. I would expect an unnecessary rant from a 10 year but from a man in his 40's? who probably can't walk to his mailbox without getting winded is just really annoying. These kids work their asses off to become better players everyday and it's definitely not because they are worried about pleasing this cock head. Yeah, I get mad at games too sometimes, it sucks to lose always will, but calm down. This whole superfan title is really stupid as well.
But on a positive note, it was pretty funny reading all the comments on here.
hes a douche....that is all
This guy makes the Unibomber and Chucky Manson seem like rational human beings.Its not like we lost to a shitty Toledo team, damn. State was supposed to be a pretty good team. We had our chances. Could have gone our way even with the negs.
The D only let up 20 in regulation.
The fucked up fake punt on the 15.
The fumble in the redzone in the 4th.
The 459 yard drive in the 1st quarter in which we gave up 3rd and 15+ several times where Sparty had 12 minutes of possession.
If you told me M would be 4-1 after 5 last December I would have given my left nut. Coach Rod is doing a great job, look out Big 10 here we come.
More like $uperfan.
The guy is a big, fat, fraud.
How do you totally trash a team that you have supposedly "loved" for so long after this loss? This man-boy is not a fan, he's an obsessive compulsive weirdo. Wipe your ass tears squirt, we'll be ok.
Anybody else want to make a lame attempt to play on the guy's nickname? These all appeared in this thread:
Superfan = Superdick
Superfan? More like $uperfan
Superfan? More like Super bandwagon-jumper
I mean, come on, people...many of us went to Michigan. I thought we'd be better than that. Perhaps something like...
Superfan? More like Super Mr. Suxalot
Superfan? More like Super Pooper Scooper
Superfan? More like SuperFAG
is still better than Buck-I-Guy.
and this guy came out.
I'm never on the Boards, but my friends and I have been laughing about this one...they emailed it to me when they saw it...so I broke down and signed up.
Ok, first of all I admit that I posted a little too early after the loss and the cut was still a little too raw. I don't regret anything I said...but I should have prefaced it a little more.
Rich Rod was, bar none, the best candidate even discussed. I was thrilled with the hire...I'm still thrilled with the hire. There is no doubt the program is heading in the right direction and the future is bright. I thought after the game and I'm still convinced that we were outcoached. It happens. Bo was a god to me, but he was still outcoached from time to time as well.
I'm a lot of things...as you can clearly read in this thread...but fair weather or bandwagon fan I am not. I do have to say that the story about me being left on the Ohio Turnpike made us all laugh out loud though. Unless that guy was a student with me in '97, I never asked him if he wanted his face painted or anything else. That would be the last time I painted faces...and that was only at The Big House. Although it sounds like a great tale, unfortunately I have to debunk that one.
If folks want to think I'm an ass, douchebag, fat arse, idiot in a costume, whatever, well I'm fine with that. I'm not going to change any opinions here.
The future in Ann Arbor is bright, and I know Rich Rod will be the one leading the way.
1st year season ticket holder Sec 18. We appreciate the lift that you give the fans. Keep it up, we will continue to help spark up the crowd with you.
I was surprised to see SuperFan's mug at the 0:45 second mark of the U-M hype video that was played prior to yesterday's game.
Obviously the U-M marketing department did not catch the memo that SuperFan was no longer "all in".
