Hate week is official. (Dont be fairweather)

We can sit here  and bitch about coaches, players, youth of the team, the fans who will be attending (THE GAME), or those who have already made a decision to not show up. The truth is life does continue. This is a week in which anything can happen. I have watched Ohio play every week this year. When I compare Michigan to Ohio I dont look at just stats, scores, I observe how they react to adversity. Last week vs Illinois on the road they let off the gas and allowed Illinois to climb back into the game. I watch there defense allow over 400 yards today and last week. This team has lacked in the defensive department since the beginning of the year. There secondary is suspect and if attacked correctly it can be exposed. 

Now i am not going to sit here and quit on the team, or sell my tickets because im pissed off at the staff, or players. I am going to go and support the team from beginning to end. Many of us will never know what it is like to be the players, and we will never feel what they feel after a defeat like today, but I can gurantee this week they will be alive and ready. I think we as fans owe it to watch the game and have faith that anything is possible and cheer on the team, rather it be from your couch, or in the stadium. Do your best to realize that these kids and the coaches will work hard to go out and win for the seniors and for Michigan. No matter how you feel remember that what you say on the web, or in public is usually recorded, or may be perceived as negative by the players, and recruits. So as you pass your judgement remember that these players can hear you and it does have an affect on them mentally no matter what anyone says. I think we as fans need to show as much support as we can this week as this team prepares for THE GAME.

disappointment this season. Also, it would solidify the present coaching staff for at least another year or two if not more. Beating OSU and ending their national championship hopes while ending their winning streak would bolster the fan base and Hoke and company.

Alas, this is but a dream. The disparity in talent level of coaching is too great. The Michigan kids are going into this game severly handicapped and we all should go out and support them regardless of the inevitable outcome.

His record was 5-4, with Bruce's players upsetting Michigan in Ann Arbor for the last game.  But I don't recall saying we had a winning record against Bruce.  Put another way, winning 4-5 of the last games would make this a better week for us in my mind.

Imagine the devastated OSU fans if Michigan somehow pulls this off next week.  There's a reason they play the games, so let's be good fans and support our team - you never know what will happen.

Its life. Sometimes you have peanut butter without jelly dude. Dont jump off the bridge. Everything will be ok. The silver lining this week is if we lose close we ruin Ohio's season and lessen their chance to play for a title. We just have to make them play ugly and work hard to stop their strengths.
