"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."

I'm watching the 2008 Capital One Bowl on New Year's Day so that I can transition directly from the Carr Era to the Harbaugh Era. I encourage others to do the same and hope Harbaugh has as much fun whipping Urban Meyer as Lloyd did.

Now can you guys put a Spike T-Shirt on the MGoStore so I can buy it?
The best design I can come up with is "SPIKE!!!" because that's what I end up yelling at least 3 times a game, but I'm sure the hive mind here can think of some other good ideas.

So Jimmy asked me what I thought was the most painful loss of the season, and I wasn't sure how to respond. My first thought was Purdue--I knew we should have won that game, and losing it was terrible. Thinking about it more, I decided it was Illinois--I really thought we had a chance to win that game--damn you Wisconsin for getting my hopes up--and of course it was an absolute disaster. Thinking about it more, I decided it was Toledo--I was at that game, and Jesus!, it was fucking Toledo. Thinking about it now, I'm sure it's OSU--losing to OSU always has to be the most painful loss.
I guess what I'm trying to say is this: I'm stupid. I can't intellectulize the team and I haven't been able to let go. I should have recognized early on that this team was done, that there was no point caring, but I kept talking myself into this team. Because of that, each subsequent loss was the Worst Loss Of The Season. As much as I tried to intellectualize the season and figure out which loss was most painful, I realized it just wasn't possible.
So congratulations on moving on, it sounds like you're happier for it. Me, I'm not there yet, and I'm not sure I want to be. Michigan is still Michigan to me, even though intellectually for the reasons you outlined above I know it's not. Denial isn't all bad, though, especially when it means I can spend the next 9 months talking myself into Michigan winning a bowl game next year.
