I appreciate the reminder that I'm spending time here when I could be doing anything else with my time. I thank you for that.
Taking a couple weeks off was fantastic. There are a few posters here I keep up with apart from these forums, so eventually I came back. We all make mistakes, and one of my recent mistakes was thinking the Michigan threads could simmer down to a cordial level.
As for Michigan this year, their lack of a playmaker to step up in Black's absence has really hurt the offense. Speight going down in Purdue, on an obvious penalty that wasn't called, was too much for the team to absorb--maybe just for the fact that Harbaugh insisted on playing JOK instead of Peters. Great teams have guys to step up and fill these voids, along with coaches who aren't afraid to burn redshirts to try and win football games. Maybe all of that comes together next year--who knows? The starting lineup of this year's Michigan team in game-one was a tough team, and a team that wins more football games than this one. But that's not how football is measured out, obviously.
If you think all of Michigan's games have been called fairly since OSU last year, then fantastic--I know your POV and we don't need to discuss it past this.
If how you want to be a fan consists of making fun of other fans of the same team you root for (if you even do?), then have a great time. Do your thing. Those broad and sweeping statements are never in short supply.
