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

IT'S FRICKIN' TIME FOR MICHIGAN FOOTBALL!

I loved the comparison of Michigan Football to that of the submarine...and our new Admiral about to start a new mission with his team... locked in Fort Schembechler with none of the distractions of the waves and turmoil of the world going on outside those doors.  Because for the first time since the end of December, it's about football.  It's all about football.  Not coming out of nowhere like a superhero to help some stranded motorist...not about trips to Europe...not about pissing off the SEC...just football baby....sweet, sweet football!  The best game on Earth. I've been lucky enough to tour the USS Michigan...one of the finest subs in our fleet...and just like that sub, when Michigan Football comes to the surface, somebody's about to get that ass kicked.

Not necessarily a week from now...a month from now...or maybe even this year...but the expectations for Michigan Football have never been higher...the hope has never lifted me like this...and for the first time in probably twenty years I've remembered how much I love Michigan Football...and how much for the first time in over a decade I'm truly....truly...looking forward to the start of the football season. 

I believe my Spirit of Michigan Cup Runneth Over for two huge reasons.  First and foremost, for the first time since Bo walked out those doors, I know my beloved Wolverines are coached by one of the finest coaches in the United States of America.  Not the best in the state...or in the Big Ten...or in college football...but one of the finest coaches period at any level.  I think it's been so long around here since we've had a game changing coach that many will be shocked at the change.  For all of those laughing and thinking we'll still be lucky to go to a bowl game, I'll just say that I'd be much more shocked by only winning 6-7 games than I would be us winning over ten games.  A lot will depend on that first big game against Utah...and you know...I think we're ready.  Damn ready.  Maybe I'm crazy...but based on what I've seen and heard...I think Jimmy boy might just be pretty damn confident in his team.  Just a hunch.  Maybe it just comes from him bringing back the classic Block M Bo hat.

Next, since the first time since Coach Moe was let go, the Michigan family is all in...all together...and all fighting for the same thing.  All of us.  One goal.  Getting Michigan Football back to where it's supposed to be.  Leaders and Best.  Champions of the West.  No camps.  No factions.  Hell let's try to not even hash out what the hell happened since the turn of the century....just focus on the forward.  Just focus on the future...and what it takes to get to where Ohio State is right now....what it takes to knock Michigan State off of that "State Champ" pedestal.

You have this promise from me...  We'll continue to talk about the games but you will not hear a word from me about wanting any coach out for three years...  I know that's the case with our head coach...but also our coordinators...our assistants...our strength and conditioning staff...our medical staff...or the cheer team for that matter.  You know why?  Because I know that nobody...NOOOOOOBODY...is more competitive than Jim Harbaugh.  I know nobody wants to win more than Jim Harbaugh.  I know nobody will hate to lose like Jim Harbaugh. 

I'm more damn excited than I've been in twenty years.  This is the love...this is the naive spirit...that created the SuperFan in the first place and thousands like me.  Now I need Jim Harbaugh and Michigan Football to nurture and feed the seeds of fanaticism that I planted in my two young sons since birth.

Please Coach...give them the Michigan Football that made me what I am, that was the front door for me to the greatest university in the world, and that taught me many of the lessons it takes to be about being a man.

I know you will. 

And I know that my maize and blue spirit is soaring right now and it's a week away and I'm foaming at the mouth of seeing a Wolverine team that I recognize battle out west in Utah.

Go Blue, God Bless You All, AND GOD BLESS MICHIGAN FOOTBALL AND OUR NEW COACH!

Who's got it better than us???  Noooooooooooooooooobody!

 

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