Smart Tweets From Rational Michigan Fans!

Well it happened, Michigan got hammered by Ohio State!  It really should shock Michigan fans, there was always a chance they could lose on the road to a top ten Urban Meyer coached team.  Call me crazy but I did think they could lose.  Most Michigan fans were lulled into a false sense of security because the Buckeyes had played so poorly against lesser Big Ten opponents.  We all fell victim to the Urban Meyer “rope a dope.”

Yep, it certainly sucks to lose a game like that will everything on the line, but the embarrassing showing by the Michigan fan base is worse than the team’s performance.  There are people who actually think Jim Harbaugh should be fired for winning 10 games and losing to two of the best teams in the country.  Fired!!  Not to mention the media member who think the problem is systemic when it isn’t.  The whole state of Michigan has lost its damn mind.

Start with the premise that losing to Ohio State AGAIN, sucks.  Losing to Ohio State shouldn’t send the collective fans base into an anti-Michigan tizzy.  I laugh because every time Jim Harbaugh loses a games not only does the National media take gratuitous shots at him, his own fans base joins the party.  Are we really living in a world where 10-2 and a trip to a New Years 6 Bowl aren’t good enough?  The college football playoff has reduced college fans to nothing more than an hysterical mob.  Get over it, only one team ends its season with a W.

I thought this might be a good time to point out that there is a small, rational faction in the Michigan fan base that understands the process and realizes that 2018 was a great year for the program following last season’s nightmare.  Here are some samples of the smart tweets from people who think for themselves, have perspective and understand the process.

 

 

 

 

Michigan fans need to grow up and realize that Michigan isn’t in the same class as OSU, yet!  Until Harbaugh arrived they weren’t getting near the caliber of athlete as Ohio State, they are now.  The cycle will adjust itself, just like it did after Michigan dominated John Cooper.  It’s also a good time to point out, Ohio State is much more passionate about the rivalry, it is their self worth, winning is EVERYTHING in Columbus.  Additionally, Ohio State made the switch to the SEC model under Jim Tressel, Michigan didn’t start operating in the SEC mold until four years ago.  Ohio State has also been riddled with scandal since taking the leap.

I will tell you this and do not doubt me on it, if Harbaugh wins 10 games a year at Michigan, he will stay as long as he wants to stay.




Fire Jim Harbaugh

I’m still waiting for the media dolts who screamed to fire Harbaugh to admit they were wrong and repent.

These critics are in hiding because they are low rent “hot take” artists.  Harbaugh’s return to Michigan was always going to be a process.  The program was in shambles when Harbaugh came to town and needed a talent infusion.

From the day he was hired, those of you who listen to me and follow this blog ALWAYS knew I said 2018 would be the year Michigan would return to prominence.  I actually bought into the fact that 2017 could see Michigan arrive early, but I was overzealous. They simply didn’t have enough experience or a QB to make 2017 a banner year.

I think I am a very realistic person, I knew Michigan was in bad shape under Brady Hoke, but I think I looked the other way when his later recruiting classes dropped off the map.  Michigan simply didn’t have enough upper class men to sustain the program, missing on a couple of QB’s and Offensive linemen hurt as well (Isiah Wilson and Devry Hamilton).

It’s on now, Michigan is in stride and the sky is the limit.  NEVER question Harbaugh again or you will end up hiding like his current critics.

Jim Harbaugh is the real deal and perfect for Michigan and he isn’t going anywhere, EVER.

Where Are The “Fire” Harbaugh Clowns Now?

I’ve taken plenty of heat for my continued belief that Jim Harbaugh would turn around Michigan, but those who called me names and questioned my sanity and knowledge of football are now nowhere to be found.  Why?  Where my spartan dawgs at?

For one, I’ve never turned on Harbaugh, I’ve always believed he was Michigan’s best hope for a resurgence and haven’t wavered, but boy did my enemies have a field day with my belief that Harbaugh was the man for the job in Ann Arbor.  Check out this thread from some Sparties.

I’ve long said 2018 (ask Jim and Drew) was the year Harbaugh would turn it around.  I had high hopes for them to do it a year early in 2017, but that didn’t materialize because Michigan didn’t have a competent QB and the offensive line wasn’t ready.

We are now seeing the fruits of Harbaugh’s labor.  Face it, the program was in awful shape and needed a massive infusion of talent before even a phenomenal coach like Jim Harbaugh could turn it around and compete.  The program was so off the rails before Harbaugh arrived in Ann Arbor that it was obvious he would need some time to massage the roster and return Michigan to prominence.

Michigan’s dominant wins over Wisky and Sparty are a sure fire sign that Harbaugh has Michigan rolling, they aren’t ready to win a National Title yet, but they are certainly ready to be in the conversation and as of last weeks destruction of Sparty, they are right in the middle of the national conversation.

However, I’m perplexed that many national experts are leaving Ohio State for dead, I’m confident they will win out until they play Michigan, but I think Michigan is in the drivers seat heading toward the showdown with the buckeyes.  This game will be great if both teams are 11-1.  I expect Michigan will win, but this is still Ohio State and they are still a great program.  As we all know, anything can and will happen in Columbus.

As of today, Michigan is back, the rivalry with MSU is secure as Harbaugh has now won two of the last three.  Michigan State will no longer be an issue, the worm has turned, Sparty is dead.  Michigan State simply cannot recruit with Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State.  It was fun while is lasted for sparty, but now it is over.

Harbaugh has created and remained steadfast in his belief that outstanding defense and solid offense would win titles, he is being proven correct. He will be at Michigan for years and he will compete and win titles at Michigan.

The Harbaugh critics have fallen silent; most of it was wishful thinking.  Harbaugh was never going to fail at Michigan and everybody is FINALLY figuring that out.
