Breezy & warm for our game day, so you may want an extra light layer but you can keep the heavier winter coat from last weekend in the closet! We have a low pressure system passing to the north, bringing through a warm front tonight and a cold front tomorrow. Because of that, temps will actually be warmer Saturday morning than Friday night, and we'll also have not only clouds to deal with, but the chance for a few sprinkles throughout the day Saturday. The better chance for rain arrives Saturday night into Sunday. It's a very similar forecast for A2.
Last week we needed the hot coffee and fired up that crockpot to keep us going - not so much the case this week! If you're up and out there early, temps will be around 60 degrees! What you'll notice while loading up tailgate supplies is not only the warmth, but also the breeze. Winds will have stayed up through the overnight, out of the SW at a steady 15mph, with a few gusts up around 20mph (you'd see some white horses on the lake, small trees sway). So hopefully you have the tent ties and napkin rock from last week still handy :) Expect lots of clouds, and don't rule out a light rain shower. We'll be up to the low 60s by mid-morning.
Normal highs this time of year are in the mid 50s, so to talk mid 60s - yup, we're plenty warm! 65 degrees to start this game (!) with lots of clouds and the chance for a sprinkle here and there. You may see a little brightness trying to break through the clouds but it won't have a ton of luck. Winds have shifted a bit to come out of the WSW at around 13mph (leaves, small twigs will be in constant motion).
68 at the half with lots of cloud cover still across the stadium. That small chance for a little drizzle is still with us too, unfortunately. Winds are still up at about 12mph out of the WSW (you'd still see some crests breaking if you were watching waves on a lake). Last weekend they briefly ran out of hot chocolate in the 3rd at the concession stands... I think they'll be ok this week!
Winds will be out of the W by the time we end the game, and down to around 10mph (leaves rustle). We remain in the mid 60s with limited sunshine, so the bright spot of winning will have to be felt in your heart rather than showing so much in the sky haha! If you're planning on being out for the evening, temps will fall to the low 60s for dinner-time. By then winds will turn lighter, out of the NW at around 5mph (just enough to feel it on your skin) but we'll also see our rain chances increase. If you're planning on hitting up some of EL's nightside haunts - c'mon y'all it's almost Halloween :D - there's a better possibility of you running into a passing shower. Temperatures will have dropped to near 50 degrees as you're trying to get home and winds will have shifted to come out of the N, so you might want that extra layer you began the day with. Let's go blue, bring Paul home!
Christina Burkhart is the morning meteorologist for ABC in Flint, MI. She grew up in Ann Arbor and associates Saturdays with Michigan football. Go Blue!
This is the moment Michigan fans always pretended was imminent, but still secretly fear isn’t real. This is the moment Michigan State fans always pretended would never happen, but secretly feared it would. Michigan is 7-0 and ranked second in the country. Michigan State is 2-5 and ranked sixth in the state of Michigan, behind 7-1 Wayne State. The rivals clash Saturday, and Michigan is favored by anywhere from 21 to 78 points, depending on how loud and drunk the Michigan fan is as he jabs a chubby finger into the Michigan State fan’s chest. Hey, the Spartans can’t say they weren’t warned. They’ve done some heavy, heavy trolling while winning seven of eight meetings, led by disrespect-addicted coach Mark “Still No D” Antonio. The Wolverines took their punishment without much resistance, even apologizing when they were mildly disrespectful.
The Spartans can’t believe this is happening after just reaching the national playoff, where they impressively held the Crimson Tide below 40. The Wolverines can’t fully grasp it either, wondering if this is some sort of trap and Antonio suddenly will start using the real playbook, the one with actual first-down passes, minus fake field goals with one second left in the half. I’m not saying the Spartans are in a daze after starting 0-4 in the Big Ten for the first time since 1982. I’m just saying there are Michigan State fans staggering through the streets wearing stained Cotton Bowl T-shirts and “Make State Great Again” hats. I’m just saying Michigan State’s defense was assigned the task of protecting the Sparty statue this week, and at last report, Sparty was missing his helmet, half an arm, and obscenely, his entire codpiece. He also was caked in approximately 27 coats of blue paint.http://www.detroitnews.com/story/sports/columnists/bob-wojnowski/2016/10...
The Wallstreet Journal has a story with a few details provided by Baylor Board of Regent Members. It's unreal the attitude taken by some of the Baylor donors and boosters:
Drayton McLane, a billionaire businessman whose name is on the Baylor football stadium, and other large donors asked the board for a private briefing on why the regents took such drastic action. Mr. Murff, chairman of the regents, declined to give them details of the investigation.
“They were very cold,” Mr. McLane said in an interview, adding that the controversy won’t affect his giving to Baylor and that he “just wants to understand the decisions that were made.”
Mr. Murff said other wealthy alumni suggested they would withhold millions of dollars if Baylor didn’t bring Mr. Briles back.
After whining to the referees all night long, Pat Narduzzi gave VT WRs a lot of praise.....
"They did a great job pushing off all night. Give them credit for that."
