WOW!! I have not written a post in quite some time. I look back at the last post and just laugh how wrong I was with some of my predictions/analysis. Oh well, still turned out to be a great year for the Michigan Wolverines football team! Team 132 congrats on a great 2011 season! Now onto 2012. Before I write a blog on my thoughts on Team 133, I wanted to address something that has been really tiresome to read and hear.
Lately I have been reading some mailbag questions for ESPN Blog writers Adam Rittenberg and Brian Bennett. Questions and complaints coming from Michigan St. fans. Every time I read one of your whiny questions, it’s always about trying to prove to every one that Michigan St. is on the up and not coming down. How Michigan is lame and nobody should be giving them any respect. Just stop while you’re ahead, ok? Why bother? I have to give you all some credit. Because ever since Coach D’Antonio has come on board, he has turned that program around. Luckily enough, he had Rich Rod at Michigan for 3 years paving that road for him, but regardless still did a great job. Now ever since Coach Hoke has arrived to Michigan, I feel like D’Antonio is now back peddling and so are you Michigan St. fans. Have some respect for yourselves and have a little pride. You’re going to compete! You might have some bump in the roads, but don’t belittle yourselves. I’m tired of it!
We all know things are going to change with the Paul Bunyan rivalry. Michigan is back and you’re scared. It’s going to be ok. You want to know why? Because, expectations at MSU are not to win National Championships like they are at Michigan. You need to grind it out every single week. Be happy with what you have right now and where the program is going. Until Coach D’Antonio loses 4-5 straight games to Michigan.
