Apparently, the rock band, Pop Evil, has recorded a Michigan Football tribute song. The song will be released at the end of the month and they made a 'teaser trailer'/hype video for it. I found it here: http://banana1015.com/pop-evil-teases-2011-michigan-wolverines-football-song-in-the-big-house/ and it is pretty cool. This is my first time starting a topic. Hope the embed works.
I brought my camera to the spring game. I was limited by not being able to move for different angles, a not so pretty sky/lighting, and only a 300mm lens. Regardless, I think some of these came out pretty nice. I put all my photos at my photography page on facebook:
Some of my fav's:
/\This is where I sat
I take a lot of photos at air shows too, so feel free to go through some more of my photos if you're interested. Lemme know what you think.
MVictors has a pretty cool piece about TSIO's stadium and someone that spent two years creating a Lego replica.
So I'm placing a call to our Lego engineers and architechs to respond to this piece of Buckeye Lego art.
Just remember this if you try to build a Big House replica:
Nobody on the internet really knows whether or not Jim Harbaugh is truly interested in leaving Stanford, and nobody close to Harbaugh is talking. However, there is one potentially huge inducement (aside from a new $50,000 crapper in Schembechler Hall) for JH to leave Palo Alto and come back east: the absolutely miserable attendance at Stanford games.
"A nationally-ranked football team with a star quarterback, well-known coach and gorgeous stadium would translate to sellout crowds on most college campuses.
But not at Stanford, where thousands of seats sit empty on any given Saturday. The small crowds are an object of derision for opponents and a source of frustration for school officials, including football coach Jim Harbaugh. The situation has left others baffled.
"Their head coach is a force of nature. Their quarterback is a Heisman Trophy candidate. Their team is one of the best in the country, and they have 6.5 million people living here," said Andy Dolich, who has worked as an executive for the A's, Warriors and 49ers. "They've got everything going for them."
But the empty seats -- in 50,000-seat Stanford Stadium, more than 10,000 regularly go unfilled -- are no longer just a head-scratcher. They could cost the football team a berth in a major bowl game."
I haven't seen these posted yet, but I have two awesome photos of Michigan Stadium at night under the recently installed lights. [EDIT: thanks for the sarcastic technical support]
So I was starting to think about the attendance for this game and how it might compare to the record setting game against UConn. I feel like we should be able to break it again as there could be more away fans than the first game. Is it possible to approach 115,000?!?!
This is a going to be a great game against a big rival (3rd biggest?), what does the MGoCommunity predict for numbers?
I say north of 114,000.
