This board is an entertaining read when Michigan isn't doing so well with all kinds of personal meltdowns.  The game isn't over yet.  Also, the season isn't over yet.  Most people thought we would go 2-2 in the last 4 games and we might end up going 1-3 instead.  OMG the world is ending!

At least GR3 isn't in.  He should sit the rest of the game.  The team has already given up, so Coach B. should at least send a message.  I hope they are running sprints in practice instead of sitting in a circle sharing their feelings tomorrow.
