Do any of you feel like that is a fake and hollow " slogan" due to the fact that UM football has not as much as won its division in the over 10 years ?
It just seems like a pretty stupid thing to say at this point in history. To a objective person there are many, many programs that have it better, and have the trophies to prove it.
I find it sort of shameful and embarrassing that crazy Jim pretends like UM's football program is something that it's not. No matter how hard we all might wish it to be so, it's just not. The facts bare it out.

I don't think he means it literally.

In the Players Tribune piece he recently wrote he spoke about his dad asking him and his brother that question as kids. They had to share a bedroom and were middle class, so clearly other people had It better than them. It was more like an pump up affirmation that served to make them appreciate what they had and made them feel lucky.
