This topic may be too weak to be considered Board worthy. I felt like I needed to get a consenus from masses here at MGoBlog. So, instead of posting comment after comment on separate posts I wanted to centralize my confusion into my own post.
My question I am proposing is this: What the heck happened this week? How did it turn into hate Ohio State week to bash on Rich Rodriguez and speculate on whether or not jokes like Lynn Henning are right in their assumptions week?
I just do not get it. For those who are mad that we lost to Wisconsin by 20, why are you mad? The vast majority of Michigan fans expected Michigan to lose. We lost. Yet the day after, people are mad we lost? Why? Wisconsin is a good team. They have three RB's who could be a starter on any team and be productive. They went up against Michigan's defense who we already knew was going to get ran over and they did not surprise us. They got ran over.
If you take a look at Wisconsin's worst rushing performance this season it was against Iowa (142 yards on 38 carries, averaging 3.7 YPC). Wisconsin's ground game put up over 200 yards three times and had 300+ yards three separate games. They are a brutal team.
Can't we focus on the positives? Michigan is bowl eligble for the first time since 2007, guaranteed a winning record, and they have the first QB in NCAA history to rush for over 1,500 yards and throw for over 2,000. Yet people are mad?
