The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
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
I checked the ticket spreadsheet and didn't see any listed. Was just wondering if anybody on here has tickets to the game, or knows a cheap way to get one. I only need one ticket. Thanks for the help.
I think all of us here owe mgoblog a big thank you both for occupying us and keeping us informed during the long, cold offseason. The difference between mgobloggers in the know and the average Michigan fan is just astounding.
Before the game, I talked to my brother (class of '95) who is and has always been a diehard football fan...but not an mgoblogger. He (like most non-mgobloggers) was telling me how we were about to start another losing season and RR was going to get fired, etc. I didn't even respond, blood just boiling, gritting my teeth. I knew, thanks to mgoblog, that we would have a kick-ass offense, and while the D might be suspect, we should be able to compensate for that on offense.
Of course, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome, especially on defense, and don't claim to have predicted the outcome perfectly (I predicted 42-24). But, mgoblog allowed me to enter the game optimistically, knowing all of our players, rooting for our HC and looking forward to a much improved season. Thank you Brian, and the rest of the community.
Early game open thread. Can Sparty Sparty away a game early? Let's hope so.
Dear Michigan Fan,
I write to you right before the kickoff of the 2010-2011, my words might not be the ones you want to hear but have to be said anyways.
Thank you for being faithful to my cause, thank you for being there 110,000 strong at every home game, thank you for traveling for 10 hours to see me play away. Thank you for crying when I lose and for partying all around town when I win. We have many memories together, good and bad, whether it be Bo’s speeches, the comeback against Iowa in 1997, A-Train’s fumble against NorthWestern or Phillip Brabbs’ field goal against Washington. They are all moments that make our relationship stronger and that make us bond the way we have bonded in the past and the way we will keep on bonding in the future. What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.
Friend, you have been angry at me recently and I don’t really know why? is it because there are less W’s? If so is our relationship one of self-interest? I truly thought you loved me for my inner soul and not for materialistic and cosmetic things, I thought you love me for what i mean to do and not just what I succeed at doing.
Well, don’t blame anything on the coach or the players, the university or yourself, there is nothing wrong, the spirit of this team is still there, I know it. Did you see Threet running against Wisconsin in 2008, did you know that he is actually a pocket passer!! Did you see Tate trying and trying and trying last year, did you see Rich crying? Did you see that Notre Dame game, or the attempt to comeback against MSU or Iowa? Yes we do not always succeed, but it will come back, sooner or later, so don’t give up on me not today or tomorrow. Win or lose we are all Wolverines at heart, feisty and fighting till the end.
Don’t worry about that missed tackle today, and don’t worry about that broken protection, none are intentional and in return I will give you much more glory in the future, just give me a real chance to prove it and cheer for that team as much as you can.
As for the coach, give him a chance, he really needs you and his players need him, so if anything lets all stand united against all those who doubt us and lets prove forever that we are all Maize and Blue and not just Wal-Mart Wolverines! And no matter what happens today next week or in November stand by me.
Go Blue and Hail to the Victors,
The Heart and Soul of the Michigan Football Team
