The past few weeks have been both interesting and somewhat astonishing in that there is so much anger and personal STFU type of comments on the website. I never realized how many "Michigan Fans?" find their reason for existence and the daily energy needed to go in life on based upon the progress or lack of success of the football team. This web site has turned into a food fight much like political talk shows and just being exposed to it wears me out! It is not fun, anymore, to read the comments. So, I wish all of you well and hope you survive the remaiinder of the season and find meaning in your life.

Everyone needs to take a very deep breath and walk back from the ledge. Keep an open mind and judge the "program" by how it finishes. In 2007, the team got undressed in its first two games, but finished strong, despite injuries to key players, and put a beat down on Florida and "the world's greatest coach." Let's see how the team and the coaches respond to the ND tire fire. If they improve and win, keep everything in place. If not, make big changes. Regardless of what anyone thinks, the team will only go as far as Devin's head take them.

Is this the end of the NCAA as we know it? Perhaps. Is that a good thing because it is using young men to generate piles of money for the few? Perhaps. If players can be paid, is this a taxable event? It probably is. Then is their scholarship also a taxable event? For me the answer is yes.It is compensation and as such is a taxable event. In the final analysis, does the NCAA and major colleges deserve this outcome because they have "used and abused" the young folks? Probably! Will this ultimately usher in the concept of "play for pay?" Probably. Does this have the potential of making a stupid system a profoundly more corrupt system. YES!!!!!!! Do non-revenue sports, and especially women's sports need to be included. That would be a just, not fair, outcome. If it really all about money, I will begin looking for a Div III team to cheer for because these athletes need to finance their own way and then get a day job after graduation!!!! Just like it should be and just like I did!!! In summary, I am sick of kids complaining that they are being used and abused by the "system." Everyone is abused by some system and can cry about it. Here is a great idea: let us return to the pre-WW II period where only the well off could afford higer education and everyone else got a job or joined the military!

There are a lot of "ifs" and more "ifs" in this conversation. Remember, If your aunt was a man, she would be your uncle! Michigan made one or two more plays than Ohio and that made the difference. Our "D" could have rolled over at the end and most everyone would have said we gave it a good try. But, in big games big plays are made by big players...and we made enough on offense and a just enough on defense to win. Ohio has talent, but we had a better defense and a more polished QB!
