Ok. Now do realize the following is meant to be all in good fun. I was kind of sad to see Michigan lose, being Big 10 and all. It kind of further lessons the Buckeye win too. Beating a 10-0 Michigan team is much better than beating a 7-5 team. But anyways, you all will be back next year and hopefully much better. Here's a good laugh:

"Bud Light presents Real Men of Genius

(Reaaaaal Men Of Genius)

Today we salute you, Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan (Mr. Delusional Michigan Faaaaaan!)

Season after season, year after year, you try to justify your absurdly high preseason ranking (clutching at straws!)

Season after season, year after year, you scramble to make futile attempts at damage control when the Wolverines lose to a grossly inferior opponent (How'd Northwestern score fifty fouuuuuur?)

Inevitably, you'll bring up the past, and boast of National Championships won 40 years before you born (those were the daaaaaays!)

You will point out that you have more wins than any other program as though that is relevant to the current season (been playing since the 1870s!)

Go on, ignore that home loss to your arch rivals in the regular season finale and continue to believe that you'll defeat your bowl opponent with striking ease (we'll win by thirteeeeeeey!)

So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, oh Emperor of Excuses, and take comfort knowing that when you finish ranked number twenty, you'll be back to number three when the preseason polls come out next year (Mr. Delusional Michigan Fan!)"

Ok, DB, I have to admit...that made me laugh. LOL.

Yeah, as Michigan fans, right about now, we live for those pre-season rankings. Hell, I wish the season ended in August!

And I agree with you re: beating 10-0 Michigan vs. beating a 7-5 Michigan. Always felt the same way in reverse (although I must say that has been severely tested by my recent experiences in Columbus).
