NYT article on the popularity of high school alumni football:
Have any readers participated in this sort of thing?
Couldn't help thinking of this guy when reading the article:
So I made a seating section switch for this year. After 5 years of being in Section 5, I moved my seats to Section 19. I figured both sections look straight at the South goal line, but at least in Section 19, I will be able to be on the Michigan sideline, have the cheerleaders in front of me, and be able to hear the band a lot better.
All of this turned out to be true, but I wasn't very happy with a few things in my new section that put a kink in my experience against Air Force:
1) People seemed more uptight in this area. They sat almost all the time except for big plays and big 3rd/4th downs with M on defense. There was one loud guy a few rows behind me that kept getting dirty looks. It just seems very quiet in the area also.
2) No easy out. Noticed there are 2 entrance/exits on the east side, but only 1 on the west side. It took me 15 minutes to get out to the concourse. In section 5, it never took me more than 1-2 minutes.
3) No easy bathrooms. Maybe I missed the easy bathroom, but I sure didn't see one. In section 5, there is both a men's and women's just outside and rarely have lines.
Also, I found out during the Nebraska game last year that I was sitting next to 1964 team captain Jim Conley when I was in section 5. Wish I would have figured that out much earlier in the season.
Anyway, the point of this long post is to get recommendations/advice from other board members on their observations in this section or other sections. Obviously this could have just been one odd game, but I want to figure out if I want to make another section switch. Thanks in advance!
Way off topic, but a college buddy of mine is in the Guitar Center Master Satriani guitar contest and could use a few votes. I've checked out several of the guys ahead of him and, frankly, he blows many of them out of the water. It's really just a popularity contest and it'd be cool for this guy to get up there, and even win.
His name is Que (pronounced "Q" or kyoo) Rhee and he graduated mid-90's in engineering. Very cool guy. I still remember jamming with him, totally butchering the lyrics to Comfortably Numb while he just killed the solos.
Anyway, to vote for him,

You can do all three, by the way.
One of Michigan's O-linemen from the early '90s:
Chicago Alums/Fans, the Sports-O-Rama is tonight aka the Coaches tour... It was a fun event last year and is for charity (scholarships)/supports the alumni association.
Obviously Hoke, Beilein, and Red will be there...
Several hundred attended last year, and there are tickets available at the door:
