"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
My buddy and I will be in town for the UNLV game. I haven't been back to The Big House since I was a kid, so I'm coming to you guys for advice.
What are the best spots for tailgating near the stadium? We obviously aren't looking for anything with a season pass. Just somewhere to plop down a couple of camper chairs, a cooler and a portable grill for a few hours.
I am trying to get some folks to head up to Evanston this weekend when we play Northwestern. I have read that there is pretty much no tailgating unless you are a season ticket holder who buys a parking pass. I have also read that sometimes opposing fans will buy a pass and host a tailgate. Anynone hosting a UM tailgate or have any good tailgate and/or pre-game (i.e. boozing) recommendations.
First post...sorry if I screwed this up somehow.
May your gameday be as happy as Christmas-times when you were young.
It is a blessing that each of us has somehow or some way found our way to University of Michigan fandom. Like every football eve, I told myself I would be in bed by 11. Like every football eve, I am wide awake and still watching Woodson and Howard highlights in the wee hours of the morning, anxiously anticipating the glorious return to Ann Arbor in the morning.
Free tickets turned up for me earlier today to tomorrow's event, so I will be there with bells on... or in, if THA or another good one is on sale.
Looks like we're in for sun, but with wind and some cold. Good football weather. Wear your sunblock. Who else will be there?
Now you can throw a cool tailgate and a flaming-hot after game party with just one CD of the freshest, hottest, funkiest pump-up jams and smoothest, coolest, guarenteed to help you make your move bedroom sounds! Don't delay, order today!
I can't help but think that Jim Flechtner is displeased.
