Welcome Back!

October 11, 2014.

That was the day I officially gave up on College Football last year. I hinted at it when I started counting down to basketball, but it became official on the 11th.

I know this because my last post is dated October 9. I just checked. See it? Look down. There it is. Quick Buck Thursday.

Sigh.

Why is that date relevant you ask? Well, it was two weeks after Michigan went through the Shane Morris debacle. They had just lost to Rutgers the week before, and on that Saturday they squeaked by a decimated Penn State team that featured yet another classic Hoke clock mismanagement at the end of the half.

I just couldn't do it anymore.

I continued to watch college football, but my heart just wasn't in it. I gazed upon Michigan with more a morbid curiosity than anything else. The joy was no longer there. Finally, Ohio State ended the 2014 season for the Wolverines but I, like most fans, had already moved on to basketball.

Then came the off season. And on December 30th it became the season of Harbaugh, not only for Michigan fans but College Football as a whole (I mean after the whole championship game thing that happened). Spirits lifted. Fire reignited. And the long summer was lessened by satellite camps. Derailed interviews. Shirtless Puruball. Khaki's and more.

And so here we are. Merely a week away from the start of a new season and I am excited for football again. I'm ready to attack the game with the game and have scoured the interwebs for all morsels of information for both my and your benefit.

I'm writing today to let you know that we'll get this thing back on track. Back where we left it that warm October afternoon.

Quick Buck Thursday returns. Lazy Man's Michigan preview rears its ugly head. You may even hear from some of your old favorites from time to time - I'm really trying to get SEC Guy out of retirement, but we'll see.

There might also be some new faces pop up with subject matter geared to make us more well-rounded individuals. That's what the internet is for, right. The betterment of society?

Not only am I excited to breathe life back in to this dormant domain, I also look forward to hearing from you this season. Comments people. Comments. It's lonely down here in my parent's basement.

I'm ready. Are you?
