|1 day 19 hours ago||In re 1997||
Michigan Football, Michigan Hockey, Hockeytown at fever pitch, Stanley Cup. It was a hell of a year. But it set a standard that would forever leave me disappointed in the future.

Woah. Has anyone ever listened to the Florida State seminole chants while stoned?

If we are going to continue to allow some personal vendetta that dates back 25 years ago to once again prevent our own success, then we fully deserve the shambles we have become as a program.

After a surprisingly exciting game, this was a bit of a downer.

Being of a similar disposition, I naturally thought the same thing but was afraid to say it. One day at a time, my friend.
I was at the Northwestern game this year and witnessed police arresting a college-aged Michigan fan for supposedly hitting a woman in the stands. He was visibly inebriated and immediately (overtly) remorseful. I couldn't help but cringe because I know firsthand how alcohol can turn a man into a different man entirely. Speculative of course - but if either that Michigan fan from the NW game or Frank have an issue with alcohol then I can sympathize even moreso, because it can be very difficult to recognize an alcohol problem at that age; it took me at least a couple years out of college before I could even recognize the idea that I had a problem with alcohol.

I consider myself a huge Red Wings and Tigers fan. That said, a Michigan football championship is the only thing I think would bring me to shameless tears. 1997 is more than just a year to me, it's like a critical junction of my life.
It's not even close.

Yep, this isn't any huge revelation. Smith has been a regular if not frequent poster on this blog for a couple years.

Was seated right above the student section, and it was COLD in that corner. Importantly, that side of the stadium was under shadows and not under the sun, which would have made the weather bearable. I dressed appropriately for the game (literally six layers), and I was still freezing.

If these athletes (Mealer, Cleary, et al.) believe that the program is going in the right direction right now, they really must believe this is Hogwarts for real.

After being kicked out of my fraternity, I lived in a tent in the basement of 933 S. State Street (then BOX house) for an entire semester, winter of my sophomore year. Even managed to have a girlfriend who regularly slept in the tent with me.

East Lansing bound!!! Go Blue!!!

I will say that it is pretty gratifying to respond with "Yes I did go there as a matter of fact" when I get asked that question. It's like they think no one actually goes to school at Michigan.
|7 weeks 6 days ago||At this point, the non-alums||
At this point, the non-alums still supporting the team are far better fans than at least half of the alums I know. In my book, it's not whether you went to school there or not, it's whether you stick with the team through hell (where were all these Sparty fans a decade ago, by the way?).
|8 weeks 2 days ago||Was thinking the same thing -||
Was thinking the same thing - the best teams haven't been winning the championship of late. Heck, the Giants have won 2 out of the last 4, and I certainly don't think they've had the types of seasons that would suggest they've been worthy of that feat (not to take anything away from them). But how do you even fix that? It's not like the baseball playoffs are any different than the other major sports'.

Looks like you're right, he's MGoCooper now -- not that he posts much of anything these days. I only looked back because that thread fascinated me. I'll never understand what would possess someone to go to such lengths.

legitimately LOL'd. probably for the wrong reasons.

I am admittedly one of those people who cares relatively little about anything other than our win-loss record. My question is: even if the boycotts are entirely about the shitty product on the field, what's wrong with that? Michigan football is historically bad, again, and no one has been fired yet. Why can't we protest that?

My opinion of Michigan as a moral highground has already been destroyed, so oh well. And honestly, if selling my soul to the devil is what it takes to win at this point, count me in.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||Subjective analysis is, in my||
Subjective analysis is, in my opinion, what makes Mgoblog great. Objective analysis is widely available at Mgoblue.com or ESPN, but if you're looking for a source with a positive spin on Michigan right now - well, good luck.

It feels like bottom now, but I know that a 30+ point embarassment of a beatdown is awaiting us 2 weeks down the road in East Lansing, which will be a new low for me and will be our program's 2002 Bobby Williams moment.

My strongs feelings about his job status aside, it is getting really sad when they pan to Brady Hoke at the end of the game. Just put everyone out of their misery, already.

I have a feeling we catapult well into first place once this season is over.

Cleary: 'I love Coach Hoke and Dave Brandon'. Exactly. You love them because that is the Michigan program that you've known. We fans love the program more than any individuals, because our fandom extends well beyond your 2 year experience with this program.

It is terrifying to me that this many people believe Hoke should get another year regardless of record. Terrifying.
