Michigan #2 behind Oklahoma.
One of the best (for me the best) moments of a Michigan Football Saturday is the entrance of the band and the M Fanfare.
There's something about the M Fanfare that always blows me back - the moment of silence prior to it, the sudden blast of the brass, and the rise into the Victors always brings tears to my eyes. I thought one of the cooler sights towards the end of my run as a student was seeing the student section hold up a single fist throughout the entirity of the Fanfare and simultaneously as the drum major completes his back bend the crowd begins to clap together "CLAP.... CLAP... CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP".
So, my question is: Why is the alumni and the rest of the stadium so slow to accept what would be an awesome sight. A unified fan base, raising a "HAIL" fist. Come on blue hairs, even you can get behind this!
In case nobody cares, my question to you: What's your favority Michigan tradition (other than winning).Skip to 4:00 for the Fan fare. The whole thing is worth watching: The walk-up to stadium and probably the coolest and lowest flyover ever.
Pop Tarts will soon be offering a Michigan logo Limited Edition. Enjoy.
Some great news from Angelique Chengelis at the Detroit News (Article Link Here):
Michigan freshman defensive lineman Ondre Pipkins, who was taken to the hospital last Friday after suffering a neck injury in practice, was back on the field Monday morning, a team spokesman confirmed.
Newly minted five-star DB Leon McQuay tells me when he's likely to visit Ann Arbor again: bit.ly/PrCdVt— Steve Lorenz (@TremendousUM) August 20, 2012
The last two spots seem to be being held for a combination of Treadwell and either Green and McQuay, which would give us two more 5-star players (assuming Treadwell get's the bump, as he is currently the highest ranked four star player) to add to our already spectacular 2013 class.
Any other mgoblog members going to this game? I expect that many in the Ann Arbor area will be there to see Shane Morris. I'll be there with my Dad and our tailgate crew, the boys are restless since they have to wait until September 8 for the first home game.
With Football season upon us and high schools in Michigan kicking off this week are any of you regulars at high school games. Who do you think will have big years? Which teams?
Also, what is etiquette for meeting mgobloggers in the non-virtual world?
