This is in no way an attempt to minimize our situation, which is serious. It does however help to keep it in perspective. The loss of Troy Woolfolk is is something we will recover from as a team, and he will be back next year even better.
With UConn coming in, interesting how things seem to parallel at times. While the situations are far from comparable, last year mid-season their top defensive back was killed in an on-campus shooting incident which obviously rocked the team and community (I am an M alum and all-blue but live in CT). They had a rough patch and lost some games after that but rallied toward the end of the season. We have a few weeks to do the same and I think we will.
I think if you were to ask Randy Edsall if Michigan could come back from this he would have to say..."yeah, they can", and without bitterness.
Let's be thankful for what we have and get everything back on the positive. Regardless of where I live (I in fact have one child currently in each University - yes we will all be there), I think Michigan comes out strong Sept 4 with a big win.
