While the outcome of Saturday's contest might have been a shocker, the comment about the crowd noise by Appalachian State's Corey Lynch, who blocked Michigan's last second 37 yard FG attempt, unfortunately wasn't.
Knowing my frustration with the "key play" bullshit and noise level of the Big (Quiet) House, a number of you left comments or emailed about the usual "Don't wake the baby" attitude toward cheering last Saturday.
And while it seems every Michigan fan site, blog, newspaper and sports talk show is going crazy with talk of firing the entire U-M coaching staff, if that's the case, while we're at it, let's get rid of whoever is in charge of Michigan's cheerleaders, especially after seeing this picture that MZone reader EL took at last Saturday's game...
Now, if you're familiar with the stadium, as you can tell by the picture, these morons are standing in front of the studio section - typically the loudest section at other college stadiums - and basically telling them with their "key play" signs, "Don't be loud."
How 'bout signs that say "Make Noise!" or "Get Loud!"
Nope, Michigan cheerleaders hold up "Key Play" signs. Nice going. Way to really fire people up.
P.S. Check out the "key waver" in the lower right-hand corner of the pic, she even has her pinkie out, like she's at a fucking wine tasting event.
