Over A Decade Of Annoying The Rich And Powerful Alumni of U of M

"The Spirit of Michigan:  It is based upon a deathless loyalty to Michigan and all her ways; an enthusiasm that makes it second nature for Michigan Men to spread the gospel of the university to the world's distant outposts; a conviction that nowhere is there a better university, in any way, than this Michigan of ours."  - Fielding H. Yost

"Now listen to me...I know this won't make any sense now...but I need you to throw this Rose Bowl against John Cooper.  Believe me, it will pay off for Michigan in the long run."

The Beginning Of A New Glorious Era

Marcus Ray said something during the coverage of Jim Harbaugh’s press conference that really made me think….and we all know how dangerous that can be.  He said “When things look like they’re falling apart, maybe it’s all just falling into place.”

Finally for Michigan Football…and for Jim Harbaugh…at least at first glance and no telling what the next 5-7 years will bring…things have finally fallen into place for Michigan Football and Wolverine Nation.

Maybe the last decade of turmoil and mediocrity and baby seal-clubbings at the hands of our rivals is exactly what we ended up needed for what could be the next great era of Michigan Football.  Maybe without the depths we’ve falling we wouldn’t have got to this place where the sky is the limit and expectations couldn’t be higher.  The stars were aligned…and we finally got the right guy in the right job at the right time.  Let’s face it…there’s a good shot that if Rich Rod had one more year, he might still be our coach.  Would he have been able to lead us to the same heights that Jim-Bo could be able to???  Doubt it.  Or maybe just doubtful. 

Let’s face it…this was a complete change needed not just at the level of the football coach…but by the Athletic Director…and the University President…and frankly the Regents, the Students, the Alumni, and Fans…  It took everything we’ve gone through, including the disaster that Dave Brandon ended up being, to have us all on the same page, pulling this strongly, pulling together…finally together...in the same direction.

My God my Wolverine brothers and sisters doesn’t it feel good???  Doesn’t it feel great???  In one fateful day in December of 2014 Michigan Football became a national player again!  From a football perspective, one hire and the team is relevant again.  Was Michigan still a huge job…or a sleeping giant?  You tell me based on the on news coverage from the Hoke firing on whether Michigan is in the national conscience or not.  National media…SportsCenter…does not cover our openings like they cover Wisconsin’s...or Florida’s….or most other schools.  Michigan is still football royalty…we just didn’t act like it for over a decade.  It’s been a long time since the King has had a crown…and we still don’t have one…but we know we have one hell of a field general to get us back to where we need to be.

Damn it feels great to be a Michigan Wolverine!  For the first time, maybe since Bo retired or certainly since 1997, we’ll all in and we’re all together.  No more questions.  No more differing opinions on how we should be coached or who should be coaching us…all together now.

No more of the questions Lloyd left us…and the debate over coordinators…or strength coaches...no more factions pulling for ‘their guy’ over the sake of the program….no more ‘not the right fit’…no more ‘not qualified’… 

That’s all done.  For the first time in our illustrious history, maybe we needed a rock star.  For the first time in our history, we have a rock star.  Michigan might have been part of making him a star…but we now have a national celebrity here to coach our program.

Wow.  Just wow.  It makes me happy to tears.  It was a dream that I refused to believe until we hit the press conference because I didn't know how I would deal with the disappointment if it didn't happen.

Imagine what the future brings!  Imagine the battles of two of the toughest SOBs in college football between Harbaugh and Dantonio.  Imagine the new Ten-Year War for this century with Uncle Urban.

Don’t expect miracles too quickly…but expect them!  How big is Harbaugh to Michigan?  Let's put it this way...Jim as the losing QB in the 87 Rose Bowl is what got John Cooper the job at Ohio State...that big.  That was the plan all along.

Go Blue...God Bless!  God Bless You Jim Harbaugh!  And I'll go ahead and say it...God Bless Ohio State, Michigan State, and Wisconsin for representing the Big Ten the way we should be represented!  I bet the Rose Bowl would like back that Big Ten/PAC Ten matchup huh?  Just warms my heart for the first playoff to be these two fine conferences...

My God...what the hell are we going to bitch about the next nine months???  A shortage of khakis in the state of Michigan???

 

Sorry Stu...you stay until we beat State!
