Like many of you, I wasn't terribly excited by the Team's performance yesterday. I was relieved Michigan won the game, but it was in a less convincing fashion than we've become accustomed to lately.
Did we expect too much? Do we now suffer from a different game day expectation affliction? An affliction based on the expectation that the Offense moves the ball easily and puts up 42 points? One where the Defense imposes a Rutger on the opposition offense and only gives up one garbage-time drive?
Are we now outside the realm of BPONE, and susceptible to the Bright Pinnacle of Positive Expectations (BPOPE)?
After all, the Offense moved the ball well, gained 500+ yards, had 8 scoring drives, and only punted once, I believe. The Defense ceded more yards than normal, but only gave up 3 second half points.
With "The Game" looming large next Saturday, will we fall back into the depths of BPONE, or are we now afflicted with this newly discovered strain of BPOPE?
Go Blue, Beat Ohio!
