I will start.
In JFK museum line UM fan says once Robinson burns our LBs he will run crazy against our secondary.
I laughed and ignored him.
When I went to the 2000 Orange Bowl, I was shocked at what little knowledge Michigan fans had about football. I guess things have not changed.
How was the museum? One of my very good friends was going to tour it today.

I had one tell me we had the worst championship offense in history last year, and there was no chance we'd score 24 points tomorrow.
Needless to say there was silence when I told him we averaged 35 pts/game last year.
This comment was emailed to me from a sadly uninformed coworker/Michigan fan after we discussed the upcoming game and I politely and tactfully told him Michigan doesn't have a chance. -His exact words, copied and pasted from the email:
"It's going to boil down to if our offense can move the ball & if Denard Robinson doesn't turn it over. On your side of the ball, you guys have NO wide receivers this year. If you can run the ball efficiently, it'll set up play action all day for you guys. Our defense is suspect, so it'll come down to our QB play. But it's game 1 of the season, noones going to be 100% ready for game speed, so it's kind of a toss up to see who's ready & who's not."
He actually seem's like one of the more sane Blue fans. He's got a lot of misinformation and comes to some bad conclusions, but at least he seems reasonable.
Tell him that with our defense we won't need many points. I'd say about 10 is all we'll need.
I personally love it when fans of a team that's a 2 touchdown underdog say a game is a "toss up". No, really.......it's not at all.
And then there is this guy who was with a bunch of UM fans wearing a tigers hat. So folks we don't have all the horrible dressers.
with jorts nonetheless
I was at the 2000 Orange Bowl as well. I know every fanbase has crazies, but man they were arrogant. I was also only 12 so maybe that's just how I saw it
