They say not to blog angry, but this has nothing to do with the outcome of the game, and I feel it needs to be said: The alumni turnout for the game was nothing short of embarrassing. There must have been close to 40,000 Ohio State fans at Michigan Stadium today, and only a few of those were in the student section. By the second half, the fans dressed in scarlet and gray had practically taken over our own home field. I will never be able to shake off the image of Ohio State fans chanting “O-H I-O” in all four corners of our stadium.
If you sold your ticket to an Ohio State fan, for any reason other than necessity, I hope you strongly consider giving up your season tickets to some real Michigan fans. Today’s showing, on Senior Day, when the team needed us most, was pathetic. The student section did their job, showing up and making noise like we always do. I can’t say the same about the rest of the people who held tickets to the game. I’ll stop writing before this becomes an even more bitter rant than it already is, but I truly hope this never happens again.
