Derek Jeter attended the University of Michigan in the fall of 1992. He took a couple classes and lived in Couzens hall. He attended several football games and sat in the student section. I know because I saw him there. He was a genuinely nice guy then when he was less famous. Most years he comes to the Ohio State game but I believe he was in St. Barts with Minka Kelly this year. A little harsh to call him a bandwagon fan.

I was willing to accept 7-5 last year and this year, which is two games below where Michigan has been historically, that's plenty of slack.
8-16(3-13 in the big ten) even with all the attrition and inexperience on defense isn't good enough and is underachieving. To recap RichRod has lost to Toledo at home and twice to below .500 Purdue and Illinois.
I'm not a fair weather fan, I literally sat through the Penn St. game this year,Northwestern game last year and the Purdue game in 1995. I've had season tickets for 25 years and plan to have them for 50 more, win or lose.
Jim Herrmann did very well his first year as defensive coordinator. One theory at the time was that he had an advantage because the other teams didn't know his tendencies.
If you want to find excuses it's not that hard to find them. Excuses are for losers.
The only explanation for not putting some, if not most, of the blame for the horrific defensive performance the last two seasons on the coaching the last two seasons is blind loyalty.

Attrition and inexperience are the excuses that apologists are making for the defense being terrible this year.

Franchione was 32-38 overall, 19-21 in conference at Texas A&M and he was fired. How is that not a flop?
