Not sure how many saw it, but Wright Thompson's piece on his season tickets at Ole Miss in section 0 touched a cord with me and offered me a little perspective on the current situation. If you haven't seen it, I really recommend it.
For all the bad surrounding the program lately, and the traditions they are altering or flat out taking away from us, there's still our own personal traditions to hold on to. Sure, the team might lose against Rutgers today, and they'll probably lose a few more times this season. And I had planned on not watching the game at all. But you know what? I've watched every game for the better part of the last 20 years -- good times and bad -- and I'm not going to let the recent events change my own personal traditions.
So with that said, I'm still drinking from my Michigan coffee mug this morning, I'm wearing the same shitty worn out Michigan shirt that should have been retired 8 years ago, and I'm going to watch the game with my 2-yr old son with the hopes that some day he'll have the same traditions. And there's no one that can take that away from me.
