These are three of the most absurd overreactions from Michigan’s grilling of Indiana in its return to the Big House.
It’s getting harder and harder to obsess over any overreactions to a Michigan football win these days. They are practically doing everything right while making little to no mistakes. Even casual fans cannot nitpick about something that happened in Saturday’s win, but there is always someone or something to complain about no matter what happens.
Here are three of the overreactions.
1. These weekly blowouts are becoming boring
If a Michigan football diehard ever says this then they are either an Ohio State or Michigan State fanatic in disguise. This one is a defiant overreaction that holds no merit. The Wolverines are simply doing what ought to be done against inferior competition. If they were undefeated and winning close games then everyone would be freaking out.
I texted my friend during the Minnesota victory and we both agreed that this has been fun to watch. We all had to live through the Rich Rodriguez and Brady Hoke years and that was difficult, to say the least. Michigan football hasn’t experienced this type of overachieving success since the 90s. They had their moments in the Lloyd Carr era, but not like this.
If you want to watch a boring school, then watch Iowa. They win with no offense and a rugged defense. After Saturday’s victory in Madison, the Hawkeyes are the favorite to win the Big Ten West and could meet the winner of the East in the Big Ten championship game they will surely be overmatched in.
