I'm finally graduating tomorrow, 18 years after I took my first class in Ann Arbor, Fall of 1991. Obviously, this is a pretty big deal, so we're doing the whole friends-and-family graduation party at the house afterwards. My wife has been taking cake decorating classes, and got good enough at it that she's now teaching the classes at a local Michaels. We got a sports arena bundt pan from her brother a year or so back, and figured this was the perfect time to break it out. After a test run last week to check the frosting colors and whatnot, she finished up the final product today. Some pictures: (Clicky on the pictures to go to larger versions on my Gallery site.)
For those who care…
Below is a link to pictures of Michigan Stadium from January 7, 2009 [Page 31-32]
On June 21, 2007, the Board of Regents approved a $226 million renovation of Michigan Stadium. The renovation plan has garnered much opposition from students, faculty, and fans around the country.
September 1, 2007 M loses to App St
September 8. 2007 Worst loss in 40 years, first time M has lost 4 straight in 4 decades, M loses first two games in a season for first time in 59 years.
Henne & Hart plagued with injuries for the entire year.
November 10 M loses to W

Coincidence or Curse????
M shall SUCK till the stadium is completed.
(Name 1 team that has had a good season while their stadium was being renovated.)
Just stumbled upon this and thought it was worth posting. My apologies if it has ever been posted before....
Nittany White Out gives its opinion of Michigan Stadium here:
the place is going to look real good. hopefully it will be louder too, but i think that has more to do with the fans.
