I am abnormally confident for being a fan of a team that is 2-6. I guess that is what a home conference win will do. Once you get one you get greedy for more. I am in my usual seat in section 127, Jumboheroes is watching on TV, and Juan is likely on his way tot he Big House to watch Rutgers because that is something Michigan fans do. Let's go out and get one of those winning streak things.
