CHARITY DRIVE DAY 2 AFTERNOON: A NEW LEADER EMERGES

New, 455 comments

Welcome back!

I’ll make this brief: you’re all doing great, with — at the time of posting this, $4,320 raised to support the efforts of Personal Counseling Services to provide mental health services to underserved communities in Southern Indiana.

And we have a new leader!

Some intrepid Person of Michigan has donated $403 to the campaign. The fundraising website doesn’t display cents, unfortunately, but “Brady Hoke’s Revenge! Go Blue” makes me suspect it’s a donation of $403.40, in remembrance of that time it seemed like everything was changing:

Let’s appreciate just how special this was for Michigan. Not only did they break a 7-game losing streak to the Buckeyes here, they sent OSU to 6-6 and a trip to the Gator Bowl against Will Muschamp’s Florida. The Buckeyes lost, sealing their first losing season in decades.

If they’d just taken a bowl ban at the beginning of the season, they could’ve avoided the losing season, avoided the ugly trip to Jacksonville, and OH, RIGHT, they likely wouldn’t have been bowl-banned in 2012, when they went undefeated and would’ve pushed Alabama aside for a slot in the title game against Notre Dame.

And since Michigan’s being nice to us right now, we’ll say nothing more about Brady Hoke.

DONATE. SHARE. THANK YOU.
