Post-game, post-mortem: Hawaii (Or, “A luOW instead of a luau, AMIRITE”)

Posted on Posted in Michigan Football
Note: Sincere apologies that I am not posting this until now, when everyone has already moved on from the Hawaii game. Three-day weekends are very hard on my soul and my liver.

To recap, since it’s four days later and no one cares or remembers: Michigan played Hawaii. If you’re Hawaii, that went kind of like this.

Even for me, the ever-wary Michigan fan with zero expectations, Saturday went well. My prevailing feeling was boredom, and I don’t mean that as a negative – just that it was an early-season blow-out against a cupcake team that we were supposed to beat, and that’s what we did, and there was no drama, and I am not used to any of that. Succinctly: Boredom, my sweet overlord. I welcome you with open arms.

Because of this, I have only two thoughts to share.

My biggest disappointment: Hawaii has a mascot named Vili the Warrior and they inexplicably did not bring him to Michigan.

WHY.

WHY WOULD YOU DEPRIVE US OF THIS?!

And my happiest moment: Football is back, y’all.
