Mike Spath points out that doing an interview for the official site is a pretty good indicator he'll be back.
If a thread like this exists, I apologize in advance.
First, let me say that I really love the new stadium. When inside the stadium however, I really think they need to add something to the blue facade. It can be as simple as Michigan Stadium written out, or even just yellow Block M's in corners of each structure. The plain blue seems too corporate to me.
Just sharing some pictures I had from this weekend. I went to the game and had good seats, row 19 on the 32 yard line. I also went on an Alumni Association tour on Sunday, lots of the same things that other people have posted, got to see the $$ seats, and also got a little preseentation on the history of the Big House. Also got to tour the locker room, and the best part of the tour was the chance to run out of the tunnel and play around on the field of the big house.
Band Getting Started
The B-25 Flyover... he was LOW
He came around for another pass... again, LOW
Brock Touches the Banner
The Team touches the Banner
The A-10 Warthogs weren't as low, but were sweet
Good view from the seats (Pics at the game were all taken on my Droid, this is with the Droid Zoomed in)
Locker room, didn't smell bad for it being like 20 hours postgame
Tom Harmon's Heisman, on display on the Club Seat Level
Played a little catch on the field after the tour.
Outstanding weekend all around. Go Blue
AD Brandon, on Coach's Radio Show, just mentioned that the sound engineers told him that the Big House is projected to be 30% louder than it has been. He didnt get into details but the comment came out of a discussion about the added suites. I hope so, as it would make home games a bit more intimidating for opponents. Add night games to that combination and it will be sweet.
Prior to the BTN network broadcast on M last night I watched the 1969 M/OSU game. I noticed that every time the camera focused on the crowd it seemed it was a majority RED. At the game last year my tailgating was right at the corner of Stadium and Main.
As I partied and watched fans come into the House it seemed there was also a ton of RED. In droves. Inside the game it became rather obvious that was the case.
How the hell do OSU fans get ahold of so many tickets? Just doesn't make sense.
Just came across an article on the front of The Wall Street Journal (Online). Talks about new polices/rules that will take effect this year.
- "Starting with the Wolverines' season opener against Connecticut on Sept. 4, all designated smoking areas on Michigan Stadium grounds will be gone."
Good move IMO. Go Blue!
