Just a little Friday morning meandering

Submitted by Blazefire on September 24th, 2010 at 9:32 AM

Here we are, 1/4 of the way into the football season, on the doorstep of Big 10 play, 3-0, on a beautiful Friday morning, staring the weekend right in the mouth, and my mind is wandering to all of the beautiful reasons it's great to be a Michigan fan. This thread has no purpose whatsoever except to make you feel good and reminisce about the best things in Michigan football.

It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine because:

Morgan Trent was faster than the SEC.

Denard Robinson is faster than Morgan Trent.

of Laser Rocket Arms.

of 313 yards.

of Touchdown Meeeeeechigan.

Because of The Game, and The War.

It may be my final win, but you guys are still the stars, so put me down already!

We're Mad Magicians, baby!

but we're also just bigger and stronger and better.

of First Games,

And all those after.

It brought a smile to my face, a slight tear to my eye, and joy to my heart...

Man, I love being a Michigan fan.

I did think you needed one arrogant, comment/picture in there. Maybe Griese and Woodson holding the 1997 Rose Bowl trophy and the comment being like "because we're better than you and we know it."

I too found myself thoughtful and contemplative of the maize and blue and all the goodness it brings today.  Seriously, take a time-out for one minute, and forget the job, or the bills, or whatever the heck is worrying you right now, and consider this:

IT IS THE LAST WEEK OF SEPTEMBER, not early June, not February, not the last weekend in April.  We are gloriously in the middle of the most perfect time of year, otherwise known as football season.  And WE ARE 3-0, and on the cusp of a fourth.  AND, well, DENARD.

Life is never perfect, but it's always good.  Go Blue.

I've mentioned several times on the board before... my grandfather works at the stadium (65 years now) and I was born on campus.  As much as I love cheering for any team that wears the Maize and Blue, it always makes me more proud to think of the "family" attitude of this fine institution.

What other school has the most winningest football program and academics that are in the Top-25 in the country every year?  (Answer is none because there is only one most winningest football program, obviously).  Michigan is a one-stop shop!
