During the Michigan-Nebraska football game on Saturday, Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman was honored for her work before she retires during the Summer of 2014.  Coleman was presented with a #12 jersey for her 12 years of work.  Coleman took the microphone from Athletic Director Dave Brandon and gave an impromptu speech, where she appeared to be drunk.  I was at the game and the first thing I thought was “holy crap, she is hammered.”  Listening to her speech, she was slurring her words and emphasizing syllables that had no need to be emphasized.  I don’t blame her for being drunk, it’s the only way to watch a Michigan football game right now.

Just Fix It; That’s All We Ask

Where do I begin?  I don’t even know what to say. Watching the Michigan – Nebraska game was one of the most painful experiences I’ve had in a while.  That says something considering what happened in East Lansing a week ago.  The most painful thing to watch was our team’s lack of spirit.  It was like they were dead inside.  The Michigan State experience was obviously...

The Michigan Struggles: What’s Wrong with the Devin Gardner, Taylor Lewan Led Offense?

Despite a 5-0 start to the season, the Michigan offense didn’t seem to be taking the next step that many expected based off the flashes in 2012.
