Peppers at 10, which seems low.
I have a question about tailgating and getting the game on tv. My plan this year is to go to all home games, but only actually go into maybe one or two games. The rest I plan to just tailgate and watch the games on tv.
Now I know that the Oregon State game is on ABC, as well as others may be throughout the course of the year. For the games on local channels, I plan on just using a Digital Antenna. Has anyone had any success / problems using digital antenna receivers at the game? (such as not being able to get anything to come in, or only a few specific channels come in)
My other question is about using Dish Network. I have DIsh at home already, and would like to take it with me to the game for times when they are on ESPN, FS1, etc. So far, I have researched it and it seems you either need to buy the "Tailg8er" or whatever it is, for some $300+. Or I also beleive you can buy a portable dish that receives HD, that sets itself up once installed for around $200. Basically I'm completely new to all of this, and I'm obviously looking to spend the least amount of money possible, but I don't want to sacrifice HD. Any advice and information is extremely helpful and I appraciate it!
By the way - I will be tailgating at the golf course all year.
Somehow I missed this (we may have to remove the 'historian' from my name) but this past Wednesday was the 20 year anniversary of Dreisbach to Hayes against Virginia...
Yes, I'm sure you have the same reaction as me. How the hell has it been 20 years?
Brief article here in the LA Times on class of 2016 Michigan QB recruit Victor Viramontes.
Norco is located near Riverside, CA (a.k.a. Inland Empire). Viramontes first game is tonight vs. Etiwada. He'll be playing QB and apparently LB as well.
Norco roster here. Viramontes wear's No. 10. Check out the positions he plays. Sheesh!
Not a complete shock, since this kid is now 6-2, 230 lbs!!:
Norco is looking forward to giving the Huskies some competition, and the Cougars have one of the best quarterbacks on the West Coast in Victor Viramontes.
"Victor is the ultimate leader. When it comes to competition, he leads by example," Coach Chuck Chastain said.
Bound for Michigan, Viramontes is a passer and runner. He's also going to play some defense this season.Norco was impressive in summer seven on seven passing competitions with its skill-position players.
No. 4 Michigan (10-1) vs. No. 13 Washington (7-4).
The game was just posted on Youtube tonight.
My childhood was wrecked at the 1:58:19 mark by UW LB Michael Jackson.
Michigan was down 7-27 in the 3rd quarter, but almost pulled off the win with 1:28 left.
This dude is a breath of fresh air man:
“Obviously if I feel like I couldn’t make an impact then I shouldn’t have this job,” Baxter said. “I do feel like we can make an impact.”
“It’s upsetting to me the last time we’ve returned a kick or a punt (for a touchdown) was 2007 or 2008,” Baxter said. “Last time we returned a field goal for a score was 2003. That’s way too long. I can just tell you this, we are going to approach this football team and this camp with some tremendous urgency.”
“When those things happen, it’s when they happen,” Baxter said. “But I’ll tell you what, my expectations is that it happens tomorrow.”
College Football Talk did an article about Harbaugh effect helping to turn around tickets sales at Michigan. Enjoy
The hiring of Jim Harbaugh has without a doubt been one of the more buzzworthy coaching hires in recent years around college football, and the outlook for the Wolverines seems to have turned around 180-degrees back on track as a result. That could also mean Michigan will not have to resort to any Coca-Cola ticket promotions this fall as well.
Back in April during spring football season, Michigan’s spring attendance saw a massive jump from 15,000 fans in 2014 to aneager and interested turnout of 60,000 Michigan fans. At the time, Michigan’s athletics director Jim Hackett also said the school was seeing steady growth in season ticket sales that forced Michigan to have to start a wait list already 1,500 fans deep. Hackett also said all 81 luxury boxes in Michigan Stadium had been sold out for the 2015 season. The momentum seems to be continuing in Ann Arbor in the ticket sales office too.
In addressing the financial state of Michigan’s athletics department to the regents this week, Hackett outlined a loss of $7.9 million loss from the most recent fiscal year, but highlighted some of the reasons for optimism things will turn around rather quickly, with the football program playing a key role. Hackett says Michigan has sold 18,000 single-game tickets and Michigan is projecting an eight-year high in season ticket sales. If there was any doubt the importance or significance of Michigan bringing Harbaugh back to Ann Arbor for the first time since he played quarterback for Bo Schembechler, Hackett put it to rest.
“We had to get the revenue moving line back up,” Hackett said, according toMLive.com. “One of our core strategies was getting a special football coach.”
