Well, its my last day of teaching before thanksgiving break and thusly, before The Game. A tradition in my american history class is to show the documentary The Rivalry which goes back through the history of this rivalry. I'm watching this, and I'm looking at the young Michigan fans here in my NW ohio classrooms who still, despite the jeers and ridiculue, still wear their maize and blue while I too have my Nike number 7 maize and blue jersey on. I like watching this documentary because it reminds me of the greatness of this game. How even on bad years our boys can still pull one out to play spoiler to the enemy.
This is a downturn for Michigan. But this isn't the first in our storied history. Anything is possible this Saturday. So let's cut the woe is me crap and rally behind our team and our coach one last time.
I hate Ohio State. But more importanly I love michigan
