It was about 5:00 P.M on Saturday. Sitting in the Big House at half time, extremely disgruntled and slightly intoxicated (I’m 21 now so I can say that right…?), I pondered what has become of our football program. Still the winningest team in college football history, we have become the laughing-stock of the Big Ten. I and all of my friends proceeded to return home, unwilling to witness in person Minnesota, yes – the Minnesota Golden Gophers, storm across the field to take back the Little Brown Jug. I walked home to watch the rest of the game on television, screaming at the television as Brady Joke kept in sophomore quarterback Shane Morris who didn’t appear to know what planet he was on after getting crushed by a Minnesota lineman. To say the least – I was not happy. So, what was the first thing I did? I went to the blogosphere. I went to mgoblog.com to find out what other loyal wolverine fans had to say about the catastrophe occurring on the field. It made me feel better to an extent to know that so many others were feeling the same things I was. Most posts were about how it was time for Brady Joke and AD Dave Brandon to be fired; others were already making lists of potential replacements; and a fiercely loyal few were saying the coaching staff needs more time. After reading all the posts about essentially how much we suck, and just exactly why we suck, I finally arrived to the conclusion that, well, we suck.
Mgoblog.com is a safe haven for angry wolverine fans. It’s where I go to make some sense of my temptations to tear up all my remaining season tickets. It’s a place of despair after an embarrassing loss; it’s a place of hope after an uplifting win; it’s a place to almost pathetically follow which 17-year old teenagers will decide to attend Michigan; but, most of all, it’s simply a place to be a fan. So, if you ever find yourself tossing and turning at night about the coaching failures or offensive line struggles of the Michigan football team, or if you ever just want to feel a little more knowledgeable, give mgoblog a try. I can’t promise that you’ll feel better or more optimistic, but you’ll definitely be more informed about it.
