Will we be happy going back to "the way things used to be?"
Let's say the bottom falls out, RR is gone, and we bring in a new coach who promptly proclaims that the last 3 years have been a failed experiment and we are returning to "Michigan football". We transition back to a pro-style offense with rocket armed QBs, massive O-Lines, feature RBs, big WRs and a traditional tough, physical Big 10 defense. We are 9-4 or 10-3 on most years, usually a top 15 team who finishes in the top 3 in the conference. Is that now good enough for our fans? It wasn't a few years ago. Has our perspective changed? This thought crossed my mind when I heard someone talking about how traditional Big 10 teams have struggled in some of the bigger bowl games.
