at least it's not just us?
The other day I was chatting with a friend who went to the game at UCONN and it got me thinking about all of the away games I have gone to. After thinking about it, I decided my favorite was the 2006 game at Notre Dame. Notre Dame was ranked #2 for that game and was supposed to "return to glory" that year. Also, the winner of that game would be #1 for winning percentage. As we now know, Michigan dominated 47-21. That game was truly awesome to go. Now I must ask everyone else: what is the your favorite away game that you have been to (and if you haven't been to any, then do you have a favorite away game from the past?)
The ESPN coverage maps have been released. Here is the link to show them.
Notre Dame offensive linemen Zack Martin and Chris Watt recall Under the Lights I with irishillustrated.com, ranking the experience above some other notable away games:
"According to Martin and Watt, nothing last season - not Oklahoma under the lights or USC at the Coliseum - stood up to the Big House two seasons ago. It’s likely no stadium moving forward will, either."
I hope this year's game is two times as loud and leaves them with an everlasting impression of the big house. Go blue and beat ND!
No one seems to want to report the sad/bad "breaks" incurred by Central Michigan in yesterday's game against Michigan. MLive reported last night that the Michigan Defense (1) knocked CMU starting quarterback Cody Kater out of the game with a broken collarbone and (2) knocked CMU starting running back out of the game with a broken ankle.
This is obviously very sad news for the players themselves, their families, and teammates.
The "breaks" significantly impact CMU's future offensive options as well as their depth. Here's wishing them as rapid a recovery as each can safely achieve. Michigan followers certainly can appreciate such bad "breaks."
I have had a Fanvision for the past three seasons that I have always used at Michigan Stadium, but it did not work yesterday. For those who don't know what a Fanvision is, it is a small controller with a screen that provides real-time stats as well as replays and streams of games from around the country. I went online and couldn't find anything definitive as to whether or not Fanvision service at the Big House has ended. Did anyone else with a Fanvision have this problem and/or know if the service is over? It really was great to have one.
P.S. The webiste http://www.fanvision.com/ doesn't list football on the website anymore, so I am assuming they ended service, but I still can't find anything that definitively says so.
It's oficially official! UTL II is going to be the game of the week. It will not be on ABC due to NASCAR but it will be carried by ESPN which I think will make for the "Mush"berger and Herbie duo. Does this make us a lock for College Gameday? if so where do you think they will set up?
