The Snowflake Thread: The fans

Submitted by ThadMattasagoblin on November 30th, 2013 at 5:46 PM

Shame on the 35000 so called "fans" who sold their tickets to Buckeye fans. The fans that were there were loud and the big house was rocking. We should have a program where if you miss more than one home game you lose your season ticket priviliges.

We had our backup kicker who missed a field goal that luckily didn't count, and almost shanked two extra points. We had a QB who was playing on some sort of injury. We had not stopped their offense, or even forced them to pass, in over a quarter. It was definitely a reasonable call. It gave us the opportunity to win against their defense, which we had shredded, without having to see the offense again.

Agreed. Way too much red in the stands today. I am one of the biggest pessimists on the board and have lost all faith in the direction of the program, but I still dragged my ass to the game today.

And in front of me that sold their tickets to buckeyes can fucking eat my ass. Good thing it is going to be a few months before I see them for the opener because I would kick their ass right now. Bottom line is if you can afford to have season tickets you could afford to throw them in the trash before selling to a buckeye. I fucking hate everyone and everything right now. But a special FUCK YOU to all you bandwagon fucks that sold your to tickets!!!!!

 We have seen that today on MGoboard. Lack of perspective, uncontrolled ANGAR, incessant calls for firings after every loss...it's ridiculous.* People act like Michigan are the Lions.  They aren't. Save for the bleak years of RR UM always seems to find a way to achieve a winning season.  Most schools would kill for UM's consistency.

 

Is 7-5 good enough? Absolutely not. Back-to-back 5 loss seasons is clearly not acceptable. This program has the resources to be a consistent top 10 program. It's fair to expect better than 5 losses which is why 2014 is a critical year for Hoke. 10 wins is a must or 2015 shapes up as a must win situation for Hoke.

 

*I realize that do many of the same things when it comes to the Lions. No need to point out my assholery.

If you think Michigan has awful fans you need to broaden your views of awful fanbases. Michigan's is pretty tame compared to OSU and Bama. 

But disregarding the assholes that sold their tickets, the people that showed up....holy fuck. That was probably the most consistently loud I've ever heard Michigan Stadium. And i stood the ENTIRE GAME! We might have lost, but god damn that was an amazing atmosphere.

as a fan.

Try being a Lions or EMU fan. You'll then know real fan misery. This isn't misery, but disappointment and frustration.  UM knows how to win football games and will so again. Crying and carrying on like UM has it so bad ignores the decades of success this program has had. UM is in the wild right now just as Bama once was. UM will be great again.  It has too much going on for it for the program to continue to struggle.

requiring attendance, we could charge a shit ton of money for tickets.  No way that doesn't work.  My buddy and I cheered our balls off today and then had the discussion afterwards of whether we want to pay for season tickets next year.....

It's the right call to go for 2.  There's no way we win in OT with their offense. However, we should have ran a bootleg. The only thing we can do now is win the bowl game, get Malik McDowell, and get ready for next year.

If you were actually in the stadium, you'd know there were nowhere near 35,000 Buckeye fans in the building. Honestly, I've sat in the same section, same row for seven OSU games now, and today there were pretty much exactly how many OSU fans as there always are.

For the most part, they were polite, good-natured, and not assholes, too. It was actually kind of impressive, and unexpected. A bit of the OH-IO shit, but a fan has a right to cheer for their team when they score in my book. It's when you become an asshole about it that it becomes a problem. And no one, aside from a fistfight after the game was over, crossed that line.

So after an entire week of the blog ripping into fans based on some irrational fear of a repeat of 2009, your suspicions ended up being pretty much unfounded, at least in my corner of the stadium.

Have to disagree. Sat in section 12 in the south endzone (my season tix). Took a photo of the east side of the stadium (haven't figured out how to post it here, yet ) but it was a sea of Scarlett from 35 to 35. Looked like the Horseshoe north. The west side was mostly Blue, but honestly it looked like a neutral site bowl game. Not to say the M fans that were there weren't vocal with the band, piped in music, etc; but it was sad to see. In my 30 yrs of season tix I have never seen anything like it.

Hmmm . . . I sit on the east side and it definitely wasn't a sea of red.  There would be the occasional pair of Buckeyes here and there, and that was about it.    I think the fact that they overwhelmingly wore red (whereas Michigan fans wore a variety of colors) made them stand out more.  In any event they couldn't make any noise to affect the game.
