The incredible thing about this story? This doofus Michigan fan was still able to get a drive going better than the anemic Wolverine offense.
I can only imagine there are tons of ways to cope with the soul-crushing feeling of watching your team lose to its rivals, year-in and year-out. Wouldn’t know. But the rage outlets for sure exist. You can burn pledges with cigars, for starters. Leaving bigger holes in drywall than the Kool Aid guy is another popular go-to move.

“My offensive coordinator made me do it.” Brilliant. It’s encouraging to see someone in Ann Arbor finally put up a gutsy defense.
