So with the new facility upgrades that have been announced I saw that almost every sports facility is up for some work accept the BIG HOUSE. I know we just spent like 250 mil on the upgrades and boxes just a couple years ago, but I thought I heard some news of some seating going in the voids between the new score boards and the boxes?? I figured that this would be included in this new 7-10 year plan, but did not see it on he website. Does anyone know anything more about it??
Lambeau Field which has a very similar design to Michigane stadium is putting in an addition much like what I think DB would be thinking of doing. Just a little look see . . .
According to Mark at Tremendous and the ND message boards, Manti Te'o lost his girlfriend to cancer, and may have also lost his grandmother within the same 24 house. He may miss Saturday's game, but that isn't the first thing on his mind right now.
I'm hearing some rumors that Manti Te'o isn't going to play Saturday. Would be a big blow to ND's chances if he's out.— Mark (@Mgobluegr) September 13, 2012
To clarify, Manti Te'o's girlfriend passed away yesterday (confirmed) but rumors are saying his grandmother passed away as well (unrelated)— Mark (@Mgobluegr) September 13, 2012
I'm sure you all join me in sending our sympathies to Manti, his family, and his girlfriend's family.
ED: Looks like Te'o will play. May he find healing in the smacking of many Spartans.
RT @NDatRivals: Brian Kelly says that Manti Te'o will play this week despite personal losses.

Defensive UFR for Air Force game, reimagined, with video links, right here:
Most of you probably remember the story about Cooper Barton, the kindergartner in Oklahoma City who was forced to turn his Michigan t-shirt inside out. A story in yesterday's Daily Oklahoman provides some updated information including that Wolverines from around the country have sent letters and Michigan gear. The UM alumni association has even started a scholarship fund for Cooper and his brother. The family is also being flown out for Saturday's game, and they will be brought out to the field and introduced.
Nothing was cooler, though, than Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon calling to invite the family to Saturday's game vs. Massachusetts. The school is handling the all of the costs, including the flight, the rental car, the hotel and the tickets.
Of course, the Bartons, who will have a chance to visit family in Michigan that they don't often see, are getting special tickets — seats in the luxury suites.
Who knows what else is in store for them? What they do know is that at some point during the game, they will head onto the field where they will be introduced to 109,000 of their newest friends.
“I'm not sure what these guys are going to think of all those people screaming for ‘em,” Chris said, nodding toward Nathan and Cooper. “They're getting pretty excited. They've been talking about it for the past two weeks.”
Edit: When I posted this I didn't realize there was a related story linked under the mgo.licio.us section that the Oklahoma City School district has changed its policy, and now Cooper can wear Michigan gear to school.
It was about winning and how fans no longer are satisfied with winning a close/hard fought game -- they want to embarrass the other team. Or something to that effect. Anyone? My Google skills didnt come up with anything.
