Getting Back Up

My apologies, I started a new job this week and its been just nutty trying to get time to post. But rest assured, its business as usual here at Scot Loeffler Inc.

Not a lot of time to post today, but some brief thoughts on last Saturday.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know how bad Michigan sucked the last two weeks. Unfortunately I was in attendance for both occasions. However, maybe the tide will turn this week when I tune into ABC at 3:30 to watch the game from my comfy couch in my suburban Detroit home.

It will actually be a nice relief from the booing jackasses who are calling for Lloyd's head. My wife and I had to leave the Oregon game at the end of the 3rd quarter, not because we couldn't watch Michigan struggle, but because we couldn't stand the idiots around us who paid good money to show up and boo Carr, the offense, and the defense. In these guy's minds, there was no room for error. I felt like I was at a Lions game.

I went on record last week stating that I do not blame the coach for this mess. And I will stand by that. Why? Because its just 2 games. And its just football. Why should a guy get fired because he lost 2 games? We've been 0-2 before, and we will be again. In my humble opinion, a true Michigan man should not be so fickle. Winning against a spread offense is not easy...obviously.

Maybe I'm just too forgiving. I don't know. Maybe when I signed up to be a Michigan fan many years ago, I realized that I was going to be a fan win or lose. If you can't handle when times are rough, then obviously, you aren't much of a sports fan. Every team struggles. Every team loses. Get over it, move on. Its like they say, when you're down, you find out who your real friends are. So true, so true.

But what I do know is Carr and the boys have another game in 3 days. And even though Notre Dame is struggling as well, I don't believe there could be a bigger game in the storied rivalry than this year's game. Its the battle of cellar-dwellers. Its the battle of little giants. Its the lesser of "who cares?". But to Michigan and Notre Dame players, its the game they've been waiting for. Someone has to win. Who wants it more?
