This is not a woe is us thread, wahhhh we suck. No, I'm trying to get kind of a demographic view on the MGoCommunity. I don't need or want your age or whatever, just your experience. Because I think there's kind of a divide between the younger, college age set, and those a bit older in two ways: One, the younger are more patient, having seen only bad, so a bit more bad is no big deal, and older are more reactionary; and Two, related, younger fans are more impressed with lesser accomplishments, thinking minor achievements are big deals, where older fans know not only the heights achieved, but how overall good Michigan basketball was, historically.
A positive for both sides, really, and the contrary negative for each. And I'm just trying to get an idea where people are coming from. Because those in college now were toddlers when we were great and kids when we were good. Forgetting that before the whole Fab Five mess, we won Big Ten titles in the 80's, and were in National Championship games in the 70's, and the Cassie days before that....before a bad decade and vacated wins, we were a top ten national team (borderline, but definitely up there). And those that can remember that may not see that the kids they're recruiting are in the same age bracket...and don't really remember any of that. I mean, man, Juwan Howard's kid is going to college next year!
So, if you have a viewpoint, or what era you fall into, and how you think that relates to your perception, I'd love to hear it.
