I live in Columbus.. it gets pretty brutal sometimes depending on where you are. The most popular question I get when I wear any kind of Michigan gear is "Don't you know you live in Ohio?" Apparently, I'm only allowed to like Ohio State here. Most people will just joke around about it to me but I do every once in awhile get cussed out, people have even thrown shit at my car. I really really can't wait to get out of this town.. one day.
|5 years 26 weeks ago||I couldn't really believe it||
I couldn't really believe it either. I drive from Columbus and every week I see a good amount of Michigan fans driving up with me but today it seemed I didn't see many UM fans till I hit Michigan.. I knew early on in the day that I was going to be surrounded by OSU fans, it's bad enough I have to live in this damn city and deal with them daily..
|5 years 29 weeks ago||We could go 0-12 for 8 years||
We could go 0-12 for 8 years in a row and I would still support this team (please don't let that happen) but it doesn't mean I'm not going to get bummed out when losses like this happen.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||Positive: I now kinda have a||
I now kinda have a better excuse as to why I will be getting fucked up on vodka tonight.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||I don't want RR fired.. I||
I don't want RR fired.. I still like the guy he just needs to figure out what the hell happened to our team from the beginning of the season to now. We're playing like a different team altogether and it's getting pretty hard to watch. I really wasn't worried about losing to ILL today even after they took the lead back from us, but now I'm starting to wonder what other games we can win this year after this loss today. Definitely not looking good, but maybe things will come together for us (preferably right before OSU).
|5 years 29 weeks ago||I'm just going to say this||
I'm just going to say this and get it out of the way.
It's been harder losing these games this year than it has last year. At least last year I knew we shouldn't have been good, but this year I feel there's not as big of an excuse. This team has started to go downhill and it's a pretty big bummer. I know we're better than this so what the hell? I guess it doesn't help working in C-bus this year where last year I didn't, so going into work on Mondays have been brutal. Hopefully we can get Purdue next week. Just really looking for that bowl bid at this point.
|5 years 29 weeks ago||Well I've been pretty bad at||
Well I've been pretty bad at this all year but here goes anyway
|5 years 29 weeks ago||I'm really disappointed with||
I'm really disappointed with yesterday as well, but at this point I'm really just looking to make it to a bowl game. If we can get it together to win a couple more games that would be great. We're already better than last year but yesterdays game brought back memories of what we used to look like. I'm not too worried though, we shouldn't look that bad for the rest of the year (just hoping anyway).
|5 years 30 weeks ago||I like Cincy as well.. Texas||
I like Cincy as well.. Texas really hasn't done anything for me this year to prove they're the number 1 team in the country. I think yesterday was really their first impressive win all year. Bama and Florida haven't done much for me either, but I do like Bama still to be at the top. I would love to see a Bama/Cincy match up for the National Title, but that unfortunately won't happen.
|5 years 30 weeks ago||I feel great about this game.||
I feel great about this game. I've been ready for this game since the second the Del St game ended. I really think we have this game. I don't doubt that PSU is a good team, but I still think they are a bit overrated. I see UM winning by 10-13 points (that's what I'm wishing for anyway) with a 34-24 victory.
|5 years 30 weeks ago||Brady is insane right now.||
Brady is insane right now. The fact that 5 TD's have never been thrown before in a quarter and Brady did is excellent, but with him doing this in the snow is just fucking crazy. Go Brady Go..
|5 years 30 weeks ago||I just got done looking at||
I just got done looking at the BCS rankings and I couldn't believe the Wisconsin ranking. They just lost at home by 10 and lost to OSU by a good amount the week before, am I missing something here? I'm enjoying Cincy at 5, it's nice to see a different Ohio team in the top 5 other than OSU.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||I sat in the endzone next to||
I sat in the endzone next to the band in row A and heard them the whole game. Usually I hate listening to the opposing teams band and would prefer listening to our band, but I have to say I really enjoyed listening to Del St yesterday. They were not only entertaining but they really seemed to be having a good time. When they walked past us after the halftime show you could tell they really appreciated the applause they were getting from the crowd. I became a fan of the Del St band yesterday.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||I'm in C-bus too, and the||
I'm in C-bus too, and the atmosphere here for a Michigan fan is great. Everywhere I go people are pissed and I hear the cries of how bad their offense is looking and even though they won't admit it yet, the fear of the rest of the year including the Michigan game. Damn, I love C-bus right now.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||I'm absolutely loving this.||
I'm absolutely loving this. After I got back in Ohio last night after the Michigan game everyone I talked to seems to be having a buckeye meltdown. Last week, buckeye fans were saying it didn't matter if Pryor struggled because their defense is apparently so damn good that they could win every game for them, but this week it's a different case. I just can't wait to get to work tomorrow in C-bus so I can hear more crying. What a good weekend.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||I imagine I'll be freezing||
I imagine I'll be freezing before, during, and after the game, I hear the hot chocolate calling my name already.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||I'm really excited about the||
I'm really excited about basketball as well this year. I have always been a football girl before anything, but last year I went to my first ever basketball game for UM/Duke, and damnit I am hooked. I can't wait to catch a couple games again this year.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||I'm with most people here and||
I'm with most people here and would go with either PSU or Minny.. but if I absolutely had to pick between the two of them, I think I would go with Minny.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||I say 9-3, I think we will||
I say 9-3, I think we will end up losing @ Wisconsin, but I think we win all home games this year and away @ Illinois.
|5 years 31 weeks ago||If anything I'm feeling||
If anything I'm feeling better about a win against PSU more than ever since our Iowa loss. I'm not too impressed with Penn State yet, and until they prove me wrong I really just can't see Michigan losing to them.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||I'll be there as well and I||
I'll be there as well and I can't wait to see this game. Especially after barely losing last night to an undefeated Iowa, if anything, I feel we have an excellent shot of taking down Penn State.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Someone posted on here last||
Someone posted on here last night that he was suspended for violation of team rules, but I assumed it was a one game suspension. This would be news to me that he could be missing more games. I'm wondering what he did.. even so we were okay without him but it would be nice to still have him as an option in case any kind of inuries occur.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||I agree, Michigan will be||
I agree, Michigan will be tough to beat in the upcoming years when our team are no longer full freshmen but full of juniors and seniors. If we look like this now, I have high hopes for our future.. and if not, well it can't be as bad as last year, right?
|5 years 32 weeks ago||I hate people that are pissed||
I hate people that are pissed about being 4-2 after going 3-9 last year. We weren't going to win the National Championship this year, we're still really young. It sucks to lose, yes, but damn calm down. We lost by 2pts to a good Iowa team, we'll be alright.
Hate people who can only win with their team and who don't know how to support their team when they lose.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Definitely exciting.. I||
Definitely exciting.. I promise I'll be even more excited after I get over the Iowa loss. Go USA!
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Graham is an animal. And||
Graham is an animal. And Zoltan? I feel like I really don't have to say anything, it's Zoltan.
We're alright, tough loss, but considering it's an away game against a ranked big ten opponent, I don't feel horrible about this loss.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Living in Ohio I see how much||
Living in Ohio I see how much everyone hates Michigan and considers us as a rival. Even the teams you don't really think about still put a target on our back.. it's definitely a compliment. People hate us because we are the best and beating us is pretty far and in between.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||I've also looked ahead and||
I've also looked ahead and will be going bowling with the boys this year.. looking ahead as fans is alright. The team will do what they need to take care of D. State and then they can take care of PSU like I think they will.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Well it's that or hang out in||
Well it's that or hang out in corn fields all night, I understand, I'm from Ohio. Why not.
|5 years 32 weeks ago||Yeah, turnovers were brutal||
Yeah, turnovers were brutal tonight. BUT, we just barely lost to a 12th ranked Iowa, at night, on the road. Looking ahead at Penn State in a couple weeks, we should be more comfortable at home and if we can get in control of the ball we should be alright in these big games still to come.
Tonight was a huge bummer, but we'll be alright.
