In response to Don's comment, my best friend also a Mich Alum had a very provocative thought:
With all the fanfare of the RR hire, when does this flavor begin to wear bland? Certainly, one can’t be hasty and measure his success after a couple of years. But what after 5 years, he gives us Carr-like numbers (i.e. 9-3 seasons). We brought – and bought out his contract – for a reason, taking us from good to elite.
I know those riding the RR bandwagon preach patience, rightly so. I’m no fool; I know we won’t be able to see things grow into fruition until at least year three. But as crass as this may seem, if he doesn’t lead us to a BCS contention (in my opinion beating OSU is more important to me than a BCS-berth) after this “so-called leeway period” it’s like we traded/got rid of one reliable coach for one with a bunch of fancy useless options. Then we have to ask, "was it really worth it?" Don't get me wrong RR has a lot of upside, but at some point he will have to produce, and "produce what is the key question."
I’m a true BLUE fan, (class of 04 and 08), and I support our team. I respect RR, but I’m just not sold on him, and sorry if I haven’t drank to Kool-aid yet.

the only difference was, for the most part, last year TP wasn't asked to win games (except maybe in the PSU game), he was asked to MANAGE games. this year it is a little different, the offense will be run through him, and its success will depend on his play at QB
|5 years 14 weeks ago||OSU's dominance?||
I feel like top to bottom, this year's OSU's team has more upside at most of the positions (other than at RB and LB). The talent level is always going to be there, no matter how you slice-it-'n-dice it.
However, I could care less how talented they are or how phenomenal/sick TP is. What I do care about is how and/or when this team will be able to compete with those bastards down south.
I feel the true measuring stick of the RR era will begin with this dilemma. I'm not expecting dominance over the series, but I feel like we hired RR for this very purpose - to get us over this hump. I respect the sweater vest, don't mean I have to like him or the institution he represents.

|5 years 14 weeks ago||I have to drop||
I'm super sorry Rizzo, but I have to drop b/c my friend who wasn't sure he was going to buy the game, decided too and he wants me to join his league with his co-workers. I don't wanna do more than two b/c I'm already in one with my old umich buddies. Sorry again, I wish everyone a fun time. :D

It absolutely pains me to play USC... I always play Mich and will have to get used to playing a pro-style offense, plus I hate the idea of not being able rep the Wolverines. When will be able to start?
|5 years 14 weeks ago||Too many in Big 12||
It seems like we have way too many people in the Big 12, I will volunteer myself to move to another conference if needed. I can take USC - if thats unfair - let me know. I just hate seeing too many people in one conference.
