We're talking about a school that fancies itself as the "Harvard of the Midwest", They really, really think highly of themselves. But with being pwned by a rival, to resorting to whatever this was yet still losing middling bowl games, to HAAAAA, to embarassing coaching searches, they've lost some of that luster.
But the one thing they could hang their winged helmet on was the fact that they could brush a program of our caliber aside as if we were Minnesota or Purdue. They could look down their noses and still hold onto some of that arrogance. They could belittle us and mock us and make fun of our white receivers and use our cheers against us (we own penn state) and Mike Hart could run his mouth and it made them feel really, really good. We couldn't say a damn thing to them, and it seemed like it would never end. That changed the last two years. And it's so clearly killing them. They are even blaming the refs. What else can they hang on to? Maybe we'll see some humility from them? Doubt it. But I don't care.
And, no this isn't some "enjoy it while you can because Michigan will be back" kind of thing. We'll lose to Michigan again. But we'll also beat them again. And they finally have to acknowledge that. It feels damn good too.
