Rodriguez's Economy Message Resonating

Sad, really.

You've witnessed the transfers. You've seen a recruiting class fall apart with a wave of defections. You held out hope before Toledo did the unthinkable. You suffered through four hours of bad weather and shoddy play last weekend before watching the Northwestern Wildcats walk out of the Big House with a victory -- after expecting one coming in.

You have watched your favorite program pile up eight losses on the year -- something that's never happened before in the long and illustrious history that is Michigan football -- and you fully expect #9 to come this Saturday.

So what's a reasonable Wolverine fan to do?

You take up the advice of your head coach and focus on the economy. Specifically, making a little cheddar to spur the recovery by selling your sad loyalty on eBay.

That's right, things are so bad up North that fans of the program are selling their allegiances to the highest bidder:

I was born and raised in the heart of Michigan. My first word was "Hail." I could whistle "The Victors" by the age of three. But, all things must come to an end - and for me, the end is near. You can decide my fate.

And what's the going rate for the loyalty of a Wolverine fan? About eighty bucks.
