Student Chant

Submitted by jmcwannab on November 19th, 2009 at 12:10 PM

Where are the students that organized the Rich Rod chant during the WMU game? I would love to see that done again. You should also lead the "Family Values" chant that was mentioned yesterday. Maybe after we bust up a play in the backfield?

I know there some stragglers but the support for the team has been better than expected this week and seems to be gaining even more steam. Keep it up!

Go Blue!

Irrespective of any scoring, every time Martin, Graham Van Bergen or one of our linebackers makes a play by beating Boren, I am starting the {Bo-ren, clap-clap, Bo-ren, clap-clap} cheer.

I love the idea of a chant to show support for RR before/during the game.

If I can nitpick...can it be changed to "Coach Rodriguez"...seems a little more personal, which i know seems like backwards logic by using his title and not his first name...but to me, the tone of calling him Coach, i don't know what i'm getting at?

while i personally dont think richrod should go ... i can tell you that (we) students are fed up ... i doubt that chant will happen ... the truth is we only have 4 years to wait for a winner ... we really dont have the time to be patient ... as a sophomore, I can say I am facing the harsh reality that my class may finish with an overall losing record (has that ever happened before?)... it tough cause I came to this school to watch this team

Seemed like only yesterday (or two years ago) when people were predicting 10 wins in year 2 and posting RR's overall records from every coaching stop he's ever had.

I have a feeling we're going to be hearing "but wait until 2 years from now when we're slaying everyone!" for a couple years to come.

You will get to watch them win the Rose Bowl your senior year. The warm southern california air will feel a little warmer, the grass on the field will look a little greener and the roses will smell that much sweeter than it has to any other class to come through UM because of what we are going through right now. In case we don't talk before then, have fun in Pasadena in January of 2012, it's going to be a hell of a way to celebrate your time at Michigan.

One way to impact the program as it will exist in your final years as a student is by showing a supportive and enthusiastic environment. The more fun the recruits have, the more energy and support they feel, the more likely they may be to want to be a part of it.

I sincerely hope the action on the field will do that, but if not, the crowd has to provide it.

Go Blue!

I'm a senior

Saturday is my last game in Michigan Stadium

I'm 0-3 against Ohio State

We don't have a very good chance of winning

But I can tell you with absolute certainty that I will never be more proud to stand in Michigan Stadium than I will be this Saturday. It has been a fucking honor to watch this team play and sweat and bleed for our entertainment for four years

So you and your entitlement can just suck my dick

I can't image telling my parents, "Sorry your spent 100 grand on my education. It wasn't worth it since we sucked in football." I'm glad I went to UM and had the chance to intern at WTKA before it turned into the shithole that a lot of people have said it is now.

All's not lost. I suffered through the first two years of the Lloyd Carr experiment, but my last two years featured a national title and the launching of Tom Brady's career.

And when did it turn around? 1996 -- 14-9 UM over OSU as Brian Griese hit a streaking Tai Streets for a sweet TD.
