Final Thoughts

Listen, I understand fans are sick of losing to ranked road teams, and not being able to get over the hump, but every season is different. I’m sure the players feel 1,000 times worse.

As Aidan Hutchinson said, the season isn’t over yet. Like I said earlier, Michigan has no more margin for error. They still (for now) have everything to play for.

There have been numerous one-loss teams that have still made the college football playoff throughout the years (Clemson, Oklahoma, OSU, Alabama). The fans need to band together and lift up the football players.

Personally, I was very upset that the team lost, but I got over it a lot faster than last year because at least we know that Michigan State was a great team. We didn’t lose to some scrub MSU team.

Obviously, Michigan will need some help down the stretch to reach its ultimate goals, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility.

Michigan played a solid game against MSU’s receivers Reed and Nailor. They made Thorne uncomfortable throughout the afternoon and he threw two interceptions.

Next. 3 overreactions to loss to MSU. dark

Michigan will need to root for MSU to lose to PSU and OSU and Michigan needs to win out the rest of the way, but again, crazier things have happened. The discussion about Harbaugh and the hot seat can be another day. We need to see what the rest of the season entails first.
