A sobering perspective on how far UM football has fallen in the rivalry (and national relevance). It's been so long since we've had any success in this game, at least in the win column. There have been some good games and some bad. There has been bad luck and injuries. But, the consistent factor is being on the losing side of the win/loss column.
Even though we're a little frustrated with the last season, the finish to the 2018 class, and some questional assistant hires or lack of fires, this article illuminated for me that coaching consistency is the best thing for us. We probably aren't getting any better coach than JH, and although we want it quicker than we're getting it, keeping him around for as long as he wants to be around seems like what's best for UM. We all knew last year was a rebuilding year and I get the feeling that a good 2018 on the field with a few key wins will give the program the energy it needs to regain it's recruiting momentum and take us into the future with a better shot in this rivalry than we've had in quite some time, even if it doesn't return to what it was in the 90s.
