Michigan Football: Tidbits from Higbe –My Take

First thing, the O-line, change it, fix it, do something before Devin gets hurt. Move Michael to LG. We have to do something every team we play loads the box and goes after our young kids in the middle and play kill the QB. Its no shock or surprise. Guess what Nebraska is going to do? Sorry I do not expect the O-line to all of a sudden play a lot better. We need birthdays, experience, we need to better use what we have. We lost Joey B and Bryant not 100%. Not much left at this time of the year.

Second thing, (first I like this site, we have logical conversations with professional input. Its extremely rare (if ever) a comment gets through where a personal attack on a player happens. Since last night on so called Michigan Fan sites I have read over and over players being call xxxx ups, they suck, they a certain player played like xxit, and these sites allow it and sometimes the Mods actual play into it.

As a player parent you need a tough skin to have a son play at Michigan people will toss out comments with no expertise. Its part of being a football parent. We got through the RR years, this was a really hard time on the players. Not many understood how the attacks on the coach and staff affected the players. When RR was fired, the players found out about it on T.V. no team meeting, no texts, though most knew it could happen, the players again I feel took a back seat.

Now we are a team struggling, not sure the O could get any better, but we can still win games. The attacks on the team is rough and constant. Good fans are fans during the dark days. The bad years as well as the good years. We can hate to lose, and call out the team, and the coaches, but personal attacks on kids who truly play hard is just rotten. Not one kid came here to Michigan to lose. Not every kid has a good game and calling someone out saying they had a terrible game is fine, calling a kid out by name and saying he xxcks is a little over the edge.

I love Michigan … Michael will always remember these years … Winning the Sugar Bowl … Denard come backs … Beating Ohio … beating MSU … and playing through some dark times without giving up. Anyone can support and cheer a winning team, its when your struggle you need the fan base the most. You need people cheer us on next week as Nebraska comes in, not talking about getting beat.

This staff will be held accountable after the season is over. Until then lets support this team, this staff and win games.
