Michigan - another year, another losing season

This weekend I attended the Michigan-Ohio State game in Ann Arbor...I went solo because my 78-year-old father had an inner ear infection and could not go...and once again I came home pissed and disappointed...here are my thoughts about the game...

- Before the game I met NFL Pro Football Hall of Famer and Michigan great Dan Dierdorf in the tailgate lot (photo, above)...Dierdorf's legs are shot - the dude is basically crippled...he uses a cane and can barely walk...his hands are as big and thick as a catcher's mitt...

- Got the see Ohio State get off the team buses...ever the "gentleman" that he is, Jim Tressel made sure his wife, Ellen, was the first person off the bus...

- During pre-game I got to yell some obscenities to former Michigan, now Ohio State offensive lineman Justin Boren...I hardly ever yell crap at opposing players, but I could not resist with this fat pig...I still cannot comprehend how he spent two years wearing the Michigan uniform then transferred to Ohio State...I could understand if this was professional sports because it is a business and money dictates where a player plays...but this prick could have transferred to any other school in the nation, but he chose Michigan's hated rival...to me, Justin Boren has no soul...

- Michigan had opportunities to win the game, but stupid decisions by quarterback Tate Forcier killed any hope...Forcier was trying his best to imitate Brett Favre with his knuckleheaded passes in which he was picked off four times...Forcier has regressed since the Iowa game, when Rich Rodriguez benched him late in the game...

- I hate when people keep defending Forcier by saying, "he's only a freshman"...I know that, but why do other freshman quarterbacks not make stupid decisions and lead their team to a winning record...Terrelle Pryor was a freshman and led Ohio State to the Fiesta Bowl...Colt McCoy started as a freshman and led Texas to a winning season that first year...I'm sorry for being hard on Forcier, but he did not progress nor mature throughout the season...

- Michigan lacks a quality big running back who can run between the tackles and pick up chunks of yards...Brandon Minor was supposed to be that hammer of a back but he was injury prone all year and never lived up to his potential as a senior...

- Pryor is a good quarterback, but he is not the All-American, Heisman caliber quarterback that he was billed to be when coming out of high school...he is over-rated...

- The Michigan defense played well...it was probably their best game of the season...

- Saw ABC sideline reporter Holly Rowe...she is a bit chunky...

- I could have punched one Michigan fan when I was leaving the game...this sorry case of a person wearing Maize and Blue said to his friend, "at least Michigan played well and we didn't embarrass ourselves"...WHAT!!!...WE LOST!!!!...WE HAVE LOST SIX IN A ROW TO OHIO STATE!!!!...I don't care if we lost by 1 stinking point, the fact remains that Ohio State has beaten us six straight times --- that my friend is an embarrassment...people with that type of losing mentality should never even bother to attend a game of this magnitude...

- I was disappointed in many of the Michigan fans who sold their tickets to Ohio State fans...sure these are hard times economically, but if you own season tickets to Michigan football, you are more than likely not economically disadvantaged...there were Ohio State fans around me who ran their mouth and were arrogant - but not one Michigan fan said anything to them...this would never happen at Ohio Stadium...if a Michigan fan ran his/her mouth in Columbus, they would be stabbed...I am proud that I attended the game and cheered on Michigan...my loyalty to the Maize and Blue runs deep...even though I did not graduate from Michigan, I can say that I am a Michigan Man...

- Michigan will not fire Rodriguez this season...but rest assure, he better go 8-4 next year and beat Ohio State...2010 will be his third year as the head coach...his "system" should be in place...and the players he recruited will be juniors and sophomores...Michigan better show marked improvement and beat Ohio State...if not, Rodriguez should be fired immediately after the game in Columbus...

Geez, Rick aren't you being a little hard on your felow Michigan fans? Especially those who are season ticket holders? I would be willing to bet that more than a few of these season ticket holders were victims of downsizing, company closures, bankruptcies, and other assorted hardships. These are perilous financial times for many people. If the difference between eating for a few weeks off the price of selling season tickets, or attending a game; I think most fans will sadly sell the tickets. Get off your high horse, you are a single guy who is only responsible for himself and his father. There are season ticket holders with families whose faith in the maize and blue run deep, but dedication to family comes first. You were selfish and hurtful to say something of this nature. I used to respect and appreciate your point of view on all sports, but today you hit a very low point. You should give up the maize and blue and support your school's former coach, since you are an Ohioan. I am pretty sure Michigan could stand to do without a fan like you who would put down those who may be down on their luck. Good work jerk!

Sounds like a case of sour grapes and sore loserdom to me. Justin Boren was smart to jump from the sinking ship that is Michigan. He realized his talents would be put to better use on the winning side. I dare you to make your punk comments to his face. He can break you over his knee without breaking a sweat. I highly doubt you would say a word to him if you were ever face to face. You are a coward hiding behind this blog saying what you have said here today. Your Michigan vs. Ohio State game blog entry was very low brow coming from a guy who claims to love everything about sports. You accused fans who were season ticket holders of not being true fans because they sold their tickets for the game. How dare you? You have no idea for many of their reasons for doing so. Yes, some of them sold them simply out of greed, but these are bad times for many. Some are desperate to keep a roof over their family, feed them, and just make it to the next month. You are an inconsiderate and hurtful jerk. I am guessing you don't know what it is like in the world because you have your head parked up your butt. Won't be reading your blog again. Michigan would be better off if you became a fan of another schoool. Fans as cutthroat as you toward other Michigan fans is poison.

It is hard to gauge Pryor's talent against such a lackluster team as Michigan. Would you like Ohio State to bring you back a dozen roses from California to soothe your chapped hide? I do agree Tate Forcier and his back up quarterback "Shoelace" leave quite a bit to be desired as players. As an Ohio State fan, I appreciate that golden egg Forcier laid in the first quarter that led to a score for Ohio State. His follow-up errors were great too. I am guessing you wouldn't be too much of a tough guy to tell Boren he is a pig to his face would you? No, you would crap your pants and cry like the punk you are. Can't wait to see your cowardly butt in Columbus next year. Don't forget to bring your crying towel. Doesn't Boren look so much better in Scarlet and Gray instead of that sad, drab Maize and Blue?

GO BUCKS!!
