I don't care much for the fair weather fans, or the "fans" that pick the popular teams as their favorites (ie Yankees, Lakers, etc.), just to be another lemming. Unfortunately, Michigan has a number of people that claim to be fans, for that reason only. IMO, a true fan will watch every minute they can, of every game, win or lose. If it's your team, there's no excuse not to stick it out through the thick and the thin. I wish I could revoke the fan cards of those that turn away in hard times.

I agree about fairweather fans. I never missed a minute of any game thru the great depression of the RichRod era! THAT was painful!

I also don't like fans who only seem to have negative things to say about the team/coaches. All of the negative nancies that come out of the woodwork after tough losses like the loss to Alabama. I'm an optimist in life in general so naturally that carries over to my views on the teams I follow as well. And even the most optimistic I could get about last week's game, I couldn't convince myself that we had a chance in hell against Alabama. So, to hear all of these naysayers come out from under the rocks they live under as if they thought we should have actually won the game is a bit grinding to me?!

Air Force shouldn't have been that close, defense needs to step it up. And PLEASE, develop more of a strategy than Denard left, Denard right, Denard up the middle. Having a one dimensional, predictable offense, is gonna bite us in the ass against better teams.

I'm not too worried about the defense just yet. We were flat out over matched in that Alabama game. And that triple option is never easy to prepare for for any defense. I read on another forum that Georgia Southern runs the triple option and they ran for 300+ yards vs. Alabama LAST year!

Now, as far as the offense goes, it definitely concerns me that we couldn't get Fitz going. They can't count on Denard to do everything as the year goes on.

Lastly, I still think Michigan looks good as far as winning the B1G is concerned. I wasn't buying Taylor Martinez and Nebraska after their win over Southern Miss and they proved me right losing to UCLA. Same goes for Wisconsin and their unimpressive loss to Oregon State.

It would definitely make for a good win, with ND being (IMO) overly ranked right now. Surely get us closer to the top ten.

Yeah. ND is improved, but I was stunnded how much they jumped in the polls for beating an over-rated Sparty team?! Typical ND media bias. It seems like everyone just couldn't wait to declare ND as being back. Hopefully Michigan can put a dose of reality back in the ND hysteria!
