I'm heading to the game on Saturday and would like to ask those who went two years ago or remember the details a couple of questions.
1) What time did Pioneer open up? Was it worth it to go there a few hours ahead of game time or was it full from first thing in the morning?
2) Were any of the other lots around the area (like the lumber yard) open?
3) Any good suggestions for pictures of the stadium or area before the game?
I've gone to a game or two for the last few years but they were almost all early games so I'm sure what to expect heading down for the big game.
In the gym this morning I had the (dis)pleasure of listening to Lou Holtz, Mark May, and Rece Davis on "College Football Final." In case anyone is wondering, they would have been hard to avoid. Multiple TVs blaring, etc. (I'll admit to having at some least some interest in the program.)
They showed the Michigan highlights right after Notre Dame's and moved into a quick discussion of next week's game. It was noted that the next two games will be the last in the series for now. Holtz took the opportunity to say that Hoke's "chicken" remarks "could come back to haunt" Michigan. When asked by Davis whether he thought ND was afraid to keep playing Michigan, he said "Nooooooooooooo."
So... I'm going to UTL2 after being forced to miss UTL1*. For normal games, my family parks just south of the Kroger on industrial. But, for Notre Dame my brother-in-law and I are planning on borrowing an RV to tailgate properly. And, to tailgate properly, we're planning on going to either the Golf Course or Pioneer.
My question for those on the board more experienced with RV tailgating is: do I need to buy an RV pass for either the Golf Course or Pioneer, or can I just drive the RV to either location sufficiently early and expect to get in?
Unfortunately, online I can only find season RV passes for either the Golf Course or Pioneer - I cannot find a single game pass for either location. Thus, if I must buy a pass and cannot find one on Stubhub, am I already too late to acquire one?
Or, if I can just drive up, what time would the MGoBoard recommend I show up?
Essentially, any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. As you can guess, I've never personally tailgated at Michigan with an RV so I don't know all the ins-and-outs. Therefore, any tips would be greatly appreciated.
*I was the best man in a wedding... in Ohio... and all her family were Buckeyes. Still, I got to see the 4th quarter live so I can't complain too much.
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?
As we know they make shirts for both teams in a championship so that it is available as soon as the game is over to sell to celebrating fans. Normally the loser shirts go to some developing country never to be seen but at least one ND shirt ended up in Pennsylvania.
I am posting this mainly because of my hatred for ND.
He will take his talents to UCLA instead. This was a weird recruitment overall. Initial commitment was to USC, then De-Commit and surprisingly picked ND over UCLA and Alabama. Now this.
