Maybe I am being homer and letting my emotions play into this a little too much but, after the Illinois loss, I was having a difficult time finding another victory on the schedule before this weeks game against the suckeyes. I know I might sound dumb considering we should have been able to beat Purdue, but for some reason I just felt it wasn't going to happen until now.
Now, I am a storybook kind of guy and believe (for the most part), in happy endings. After my dream last night I just had to write about it and share it with you all. I believe that this week will be the week where the program rights the ship.
The past 2 seasons minus the ND victory (which feels so long ago) have been the most trying seasons any Michigan fans or teams should have to endure. I am assuming you all feel as I do in that, this is Michigan, 3-9 followed by a potential 5-7 are utterly and completely not acceptable. (These records BTW, IMO are okay with the situation and roster at hand.)
Rich Rodriguez (hate him or love him), has endured as much bad Karma and unfair treatment then any coach I can remember off the top of my head. I think this Saturday will be the day where he finally gains that acceptance from the fan base and the majority of the media (excluding the FREEP because they blow anyways).
In my dream last night we played an instant classic coming down to the wire. The team was playing in its most collectively well played game we've seen in the past 2 years. Late in the fourth quarter Minor plows one in to put us up for good. In waning moments of the game as OSU desperately tries to win the outright Big Ten title, BG blows past Boren putting Pryor on his back causing the fumble, which is recovered by BG as well. He gets up holding the ball to the sky running off the field. Tate and the offense come out to take the victory formation, while RR gets a well deserved cooler shower on the sidelines.
In the aftermath we will receive commits from all the top guys on our board, go dominate a MAC team in the bowl game and head into next season ready to bust open and show that Michigan football is back!!!
Sorry for the rambling but I am just so damn psyched for Saturday, GO BLUE!!!
