I don't get the spoiled fans complaint... Tuesday, December 24, 2013 11:13 AM (permalink)

Posted by a lot of the pro-Hoke fan base. The same fan base that ridiculed the Rodriguez staff 24/7. Ask yourself, when was Michigan Football last elite? IMO it's been pretty ordinary since around 2000. 3-5 loss seasons have been the norm for years and years. Spoiled? Because we've won what? Ohio State and now Michigan State are so far ahead of us it's not even funny. We play in the worst conference in D-1 FBS football. We recruit top 15 classes every year, and have virtually eliminated Mark Dantonio's instate recruiting efforts for going on 4 years now. Yet, we're the program that can't win. I don't understand the spoiled sentiment shared by a large portion of this fan base. It's been 10 years since we've won a conference title, 10 years. With all these high profile recruits, biggest stadium, top notch facilities, etc.. I just don't get it anymore.
 
It feels to me as if the AD really isn't all that concerned here, why? Because Brandon is a marketing guy, as long as he can market this program he's won. Don't say nobody will go to the games because we ALWAYS go to the games. Same reason Lions fans, Cubs fans, Bears fans, Browns fans, etc.. do, because we love our team. Brandon has the perfect coach in place. A "yes man" that is loved by the former players that forced Rodriguez out, he's a coach good enough because of his ties to the program great past. I feel as if we don't have much of a chance against a bad KSU team, blast me if you will.. I just don't see much of a light at the end of the tunnel Saturday night. Gardner or not...
 
But as far as the spoiled fan diatribe goes, ask yourself, when was the last time Michigan was elite? As far as "Notre Dame status" goes I think we're already there. How else can you explain it?

If Gardner was healthy we would blast KSU. With Shane, who knows what will happen. Either way, do we really need another thread about this type of thing? Not trying to moderate, just curious as to why we need a new thread for the same topic just looked at a little differently.

What's the score? 21-6. 10 rushes for 10 yards? Morris is the ONLY bright spot. Total team collapse so far....

Michigan succumbed to Notre Dame status when Bill Martin hired Rich Rodriguez.  You can't beat the spread?  Hire a coach that will destroy your football program and it's rich history & tradition for a scheme that didn't work.  Brandon is going more of the same with an overpaid MAC coach.  This program is 20 years behind of anything it could have been if Martin had just gone out and brought Les home.  Lloyd needs to keep his nose out of this program and Brandon needs to hire a winner.

Jesus H. Christ, it wasn't the system that didn't work. ^

Exactly. RR might have failed here, but it wasn't because of the spread offense.
