Judging by people's reactions to this thread, I feel like I should clarify a couple things:
1) I believe that Michigan fans are by and large less moronic than other fans (I'm a relatively recent convert and, from my experience, we have one of the better fan bases).
2) This isn't about wanting Weber. I think he's a fine athlete, but I am very happy with Higdon...especially after reading MichiganMan14's wonderful post.
3) Weber's Mom is probably overreacting, though at the same time this is her kid and no parent wants their kid attacked -- online or otherwise.
Let me preface this by saying that this critique is not directed toward MGoBlog users. During my time on this Board, I have gotten the distinct impression that the people who post here are by and large intelligent, reasonable fans.
That said, just like any other fan base, we have our complete MORANS. Don't let this be you!
The upshot of the article is that Michigan fans have been attacking Weber, leading his mother to have a very negative opinion of the Michigan fanbase. If the LOI wasn't the final blow to the chances of Weber wearing the Maize and Blue, then everything that seems to have happened since then was.
DO NOT ATTACK 17 AND 18 YEAR OLD KIDS!!!!
