I am sick, SICK and tired of hearing about Michigan's unbelievable downfall last year, or even how, eventually, they'll climb back out of it, etc. It's everywhere you look! You've even got State fans thinking maybe this is the time they can "take over the state", like... in perpetuity! What I wanna know is, why doesn't Michigan get a pass?
If any, and I do mean ANY other team in the country went through a similar experience (ND just DID, and it hardly phased their national perception), the fans, commentators, everybody, would talk about their down year, but that would be it. Why, for the love of God, do they all wonder if Michigan can "recover"?
What's to recover?!? Did the school burn down? Did we hire Gillespie as our football coach? Why the hell dont they just say, "Michigan is working hard and hoping to improve from last year's down year."? Why does it have to be, "Coach Rodriguez is desperate to wipe the memory of last year's catastrophy from fan's minds and rescue his job and the university and prove Michigan won't suck forever more!"
The worst thing is, it'll continue for at least another year! SHUT UP AND TALK ABOUT FOOTBALL, MEDIA AND OTHER TEAMS' FANS!
