Nothing sells more papers like smacking the home team when they are down.
In keeping with the long held MZone tradition -- I want to rant about Drew Sharp. When things are bad for the Wolverines, you can always depend on The Detroit Free Press and Drew Sharp to make them look worse.
I decided to read his column for the first time all season because I needed a good kick in the balls after watching Juice Williams set a Michigan Stadium record for 431 total yards. I needed to feel more pain about the most points the Illini have ever scored against the Wolverines. I needed to give up all hope for 6 wins and a cold weather/tuesday night bowl game.
Rest assured, Drew delivered in his typical middle school journalism style:
The booing returned to the Big House.
It’s become the newest Michigan tradition.
They haven’t turned the corner.
They can’t even find the street.
Juice was in the Big House.
And I’m not talking about O.J. Simpson’s new residence.
The only thing defensive for Michigan Saturday was its coach.
The sad thing is, the only thing wrong with what he wrote is the fact that he took such great joy in doing so. We have made it too easy for this assclown to be happy, and that pisses me off.
