Look, I will stop hating when we start beating MSU and OSU. The fcat that we are 0 for against both those hated foes with 2 embarrassing beat downs at the Big House against MSU is one of the biggest reasons I am so upset with Rich Rod. That in addition to a horrible record so far, record setting bad defenses, a team that is soft and dominated by more physical teams and etc...
Winning 7 games against mediocre to downright horrible teams at best after going 3-9 and 5-7 is not acceptable after an embarrassing beatdown at the Big House on the hands of hated Dantonio. And another probable losing record in the Big Ten is beyond unacceptable.
What will be acceptable next year. IMHO winning 8-9 games while losing to both MSU and OSU is a disaster. Winning 8-9 games while beating both MSU and OSU would be good.
When we start at least winning our fair share against MSU and OSU, I will stop complaining. However, I do not see any light at the end of the tunnel that Michigan will have even close to their fair share of success against those 2 hated foes with Rich Rod here.

In the last 30 years, how many times was Michigan the favorite in the game? 25 times. Let me repeat that. 25 times. Michigan St. has been the favorite the past 3 years and we have lost the past 3 years. No surprise. However, look how many times we have been the favorite and LOST with WAY more on the line. So, you can complain about us losing to Michigan St. when we are suppose to lose all you want. Fact is, they were NOT suppose to win in the past and they did and they WERE suppose to win the past 3 years and they did.
