So now that most people have had some time to calm down and let their emotions settle, I feel like it is a proper time to bring up this topic.
Mike Shula needs to stop being blamed for so much garbage. I’m not asking you to go find your ‘Got Shula?’ t-shirts and start wearing them again (I know you have one buried in your closet), but just to support the man in his future endeavors and accept what his career was at the University.
