I wish you could all see the smile on my face right now. I’m literally watching “Friday Night Lights,” drinking a Busch Light and grinning.
An extension through 20205? Music to my ears. I wish they’d signed him to a decade long extension.
Seriously, what the hell is Michigan doing? It’s almost like they don’t even care anymore. It’s almost like the Wolverines are content being a 9-3 or 10-2 team every season, losing to Ohio State and splitting every other year with elite B1G teams.
It’s glorious. It’s truly glorious!
