to play football, not to play trumpet
A nice piece from The Players' Tribune focusing on the people that make game day come together.
Trigger Warning: There is a photo of a M / OSU couple in the article.
I noticed that the goalposts are a bright greenish yellow this year, as opposed to the white uppers and black (or was it dark blue?) curved base in years past.
I walk past the practice field en route to the Stadium and I noticed that the outdoor field's goalposts are that same bright greenish yellow. I've looked at a few old pictures and it seems like MSU's have been this color for several years.
"The University of Michigan has added selfie sticks and drones to the list of items not allowed in Michigan Stadium this season. U of M officials say selfie sticks will be banned in the category of tripods and flagpoles."

Selfie Stick for those wondering what they are:
Following several seating adjustments, Michigan Stadium's ticketed seating capacity has been slightly reduced.
The iconic 88-year-old Michigan Stadium remains college football's largest venue, but increasing its accessibility and configuration adjustments for major non-football events led to a decrease in the total number of seats by just over 2,000 to create the new official capacity of 107,601.
MGoBloggers -- Just FYSA, I received an update from Amazon referencing Jon Falk's new book, "Forty Years.."
The new expected delivery date is now Wednesday, 29 July!
This should help subside the offseason blues, albeit briefly. I'm really looking forward to his first-hand stories and will probably fly through this by Friday the 31st. Jon Falk is a living legend.
What is your favorite photo of the Big House?
