An Open Letter To The Football Gods
Dear Football Gods,
All right, we get it. We give up. Uncle! You win. We were wrong all these years. It is not enough for us to simply ?be Michigan? and everything will go our way. We admit it. We were arrogant. We believed that just because we had been so successful for so long, we would always be that successful, no matter what we did. We got (very) spoiled. We complained when Bo went 6-6. We groused when Lloyd had a couple 4-loss seasons. Hah! We would be very grateful for a 4-loss season these days. We have seen the worst case (2008), and the next-worst case (2009). We?ve been punished enough. We?ve learned our lesson, twice. We will no longer take ANY win for granted. We will no longer take ANY opponent lightly, except maybe Delaware State. We will no longer assume that OF COURSE we can score a touchdown if we get a first-and-goal on the 1-yard line. We will no longer assume that we can stop a team from going 99.75 yards after we fail to score on four straight blasts on the goal line. We will no longer assume that we are unbeatable if we can just get to overtime. We will turn over a new leaf. Just give us our program back. We?ll be good. We?ll be humble. We promise not to gloat excessively when we start winning again. We promise that we?ll remember all that you have taught us these last two years (and the Appalachian State Disaster as well).
Go Blue (please?)
