Michigan's program is a class act. The players never quit fighting. Denard Robinson was impressive as well. Good luck to you guys for the rest of the season! It was an honor to play Michigan!
Thanks. Even though we lost, I'm glad we played the game. We clearly have some work to do to catch up to you, but don't forget about us. We'll be back.

Will be as civil as possible when saying this. The fact that Bama people are posting things like "great game blue!" and "hope to see you down the line, good luck with your season!" should infuriate you Wolverine fans more than any trash talking from outsiders.
Patronize: To treat with an apparent kindness that portrays a feeling of superiority.

I definitely see what you're saying, but I honestly think they are being genuine.
Thanks y'all have a great program and your fans were all class acts as well. I enjoyed talking to them before and after the game. Keep rolling this year.
Ok how about this? Enjoyed watching Bama kick the ever loving crap outta the Blue. But good luck the rest of the way, and if we ever play again, I hope for a repeat of the bashing we gave UM. Learn to lose with class.. you should get plenty of pratice this year!
At bama, we respect tradition and enjoy playing fellow blue bloods. We want nothing more than to see you guys succeed (but less than us).
So we aren't being condescending or arrogant at all. We would expect the same class from you if we had loss.
Plus we just came off a horrible decade and we know how quickly things can change. We respect the journey. We took names on how people acted when we were bad. We will forever love oklahoma for graciously kicking our a$$. We wouldn't piss on auburn our tennessee if they were on fire.
Even more, it benefits us none if your team drops it's head bc it got smashed. So rub dirt on it and get back in the gym.

We got our ass handed to us, so I expect to get harassed and patronized by other fan bases.
It sucks, but it's what happens when you are trying to get to the top and obviously aren't there yet.
What does bother me, though, are rival players talking crap on Twitter. Especially guys like Nick Hill from MSU who practically begged for a Michigan offer and now feels the need to point out how bad Denard is? That's obnoxious.
I understand your reluctance to believe that I am sincere.
However, If you go to page 3 of your board, you will see a post that I made BEFORE the game. It was entitled, "Derrick Green Committing?" I questioned when you all thought he was committing, then I sincerely said what an honor it was for Bama to play Michigan. I felt like that before the game, and I still do.
My Mother taught me to have manners. So, I wanted to extend my Southern Hospitality (even though it was a neutral site) by letting the Michigan fans know that many of us truly respect the Michigan program, and were honored to have this game to kick-off our season.
I am also sincere when I say that there are MANY other programs that I do not have the same respect for, and would not have posted anything. (Example: USC, UCLA, Notre Dame, Miami) By listing those as examples, I certain don't mean to offend anyone. We all have our own reasons for respecting different programs.
(I certainly do not have a feeling of superiority over Michigan or their fans. AuBarn yes….Michigan, no.)
Again, good luck to you for the remainder of the season.
Michigan will be fine, they have a top 5 recruiting class now with a QB that should be pretty good. Last years class was very good also. It takes a couple of years to get these guys ready.
All we did was win the game and tie the series at 2 games each.
In a couple of years it would be a pleasure to play Michigan for the National Championship.
That would mean y'all beat the crap out of Ohio State and Urban Cryer...

I would like to add to OP. It was an honor to play UM and I respect your program. Your fans were awesome and I enjoyed them before, during and after the game.
I have to echo the sentiment of the other Alabama fans on this thread. Every Michigan fan I met was nice and classy. I posted on the Alabama board that I met a group of Michigan guys, the Friday prior to the game, who were hilarious. We spent thirty minutes cracking on Urban. I have not laughed that hard in a long while. I am not being condescending when I say I am rooting for you guys to win the Big Ten. First it makes us look that much better if you do. And I was really won over by the fans I met this weekend. Great group of fans.
I actually appreciate the OP and other Bama fans that have visited respectfully the past few weeks. We lost ... badly. But we are not going anywhere. We will lick our wounds and move on to the next game. Please understand that we're a little raw from the loss and from being trolled by different Bama fans (and Ohio and Sparty fans) for a couple of weeks. We know we have some work to do to get back to where we can compete at the top. Hopefully we will see you again soon.
As a Bama fan for 60 years when I congratulate the Big Blue for being such a class act, I am not patronizing anyone. You have to understand in the SEC we are accustomed to some of the teams that we beat become so livid that they lose all common sense. When we play a team that realizes it is a football game, not life and death, and they stay classy even the day after the game--we celebrate that kind of class. I grew up watching Bama teams coached by Coach Bryant and he was the a paragon of class. I think our present coach is the same. So THANK YOU Michigan fans for having the class and character that is winning NO MATTER WHAT THE SCORE!!
You guys hang in there Rich Rod didn't recruit well for what Michigan is know for. Michigan has always been a class act good luck the rest of the season and beat the S@# out of Urban and the buckeye's
Actually this game will be burned into the minds of the program. Yes, it was a test and we have a ways to go. But we are recruiting the best of the best, and yes they are coming to AA. We will get our kids and we will be Michigan again. What is sad is what we endured through the RRod years. I know one thing, Saban knows he will pay for this. Why, because he knows we are Michigan and we are superior to him. Always have been and always will be.
Keep it up, win it all, and until we meet again, just remember, when that day comes will be a day you will be surprised.
Win the SEC and the Mythical Joke Championship.
Let's play in Lambeau Xmas Week, the field is heated!
GO BLUE (Damn wanted to find the drinkin amicon and it is gone)
Really....Michigan has a great program and will be good this year. But Michigan is NOT a better program than Alabama. Both are Great.
Do you mean Michigan is not the better program right now, or overall? Is Bama better from a historical perspective? Before 2007, would you say that Michigan was the better program? Right now, Bama is the better program. Overall historically, I say Bama and Michigan are top 5 programs all time (probably with Oklahoma, and a combination of two of USC/ND/Ohio St/Neb/Texas). Your recent national championships tilt that argument slightly in your favor, although we have more overall wins, conference championships, Heisman trophy winners and all americans. The top two metrics are National championships and overall wins, so we have some natty's to catch up on.
Bama will pay for Nick Satan as coach. Bama will not like the next time we meet. Bama does not have the balls to come to AA, and the B1G MUST change how we schedule so the SEC can come to AA the 2nd or 3rd week in Nov. I know, I know Ohio week,
But what about Lambeau Field Xmas week before the play offs begin? Just one time. SEC would cry like a wounded animal all the while they will refuse to play that game!
We need to get better, and we need to do that very soon.

I've got nothing but respect for the wolverine program! I've been to the last 3 games that we have played and your fan base is second to none as far as class goes.. good luck the rest of the year! Ps I hope you guys roll the bucknuts big time this year, if you guys do their coach will quit..
Or Roe tweeting about Denard. That's hilarious! I'd call him a "has been" but a "never was" seems alot more accurate. You should see some of the filth Tom Izzo's biggest recruiting bust in his history had to say. Making fun of Denard throwing a football. I bet Denard can throw a football better than Roe could shoot a basketball. Heck, Denard can probably shoot a basketball better than Roe too. Good job Roe. Make fun of an athlete that's ten times the athlete he was. Didn't he "retire" from the game of basketball? Don't you have to be somebody in order for anyone to care about you retiring from a sport? What, no press conference? No one would have shown anyway because the minute it was announced all the sports writers in the state would have collectively said "Roe retire? I didn't even know he was still there." Make those sparties proud and keep making jokes about kids getting molested Delvon. Twitter is your only calling in life. Hopefully Roe doesn't take too long reading this. Some working class gentleman is waiting for his fries.
Please stop your nonsense. You have an awesome program, great coach and a damn good, "straight up" phenomenal fanbase, but your that 1/2 % that is a lil scrawny . No

i honestly think that they are all genuinely looking for upvotes and dont care for michigan in the least. "Its an honor to play... " what a load of crap no matter what team is inserted. did you play in the game? no. its not an honor to play anyone. you want to kill your opponent. these people posting this crap are nothing more than trolls hoping for upvotes not people who care for your program or any other program other than the one or two that they are fans of
There is a such thing as being respectful & obviously your incapable of seeing that. The last thing i want or need is upvotes. The only upvotes I personally need are from my law partners and wife; who constantly nags me I'm spending to much time watching college football. To that end, I wash my hands of this. To all of you with whom i have had the joy & pleasure of bantering: it was fun. All of the best to you Wolverines and screw you haters who believe this is contrived or insincere
Ironic for someone that often seems to troll for downvotes.
