Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
By 9 a.m. he was back on campus at Schembechler Hall, shaking hands again. Defensive coordinator Greg Mattison was pouring over film.
"He showed me some things," Brandon said.
Is that a little intrusive for the AD doing that with the DC or is it pretty standard fare? I know Brandon's a football guy, but to me, it's a little over the top.
Quick questions to those who have been able to attend a game this year. Is it signifiicantly louder in the stadium? How are the new jumbotrons? I was looking over on ndn and someone said our jumbotrons sucked, now obviously he is just bitter for many reasons but I do want some different input. And oh yea, 35-31.
The big ticket items-
- It went off great, and he's checking today, but he'd like to do 1 (and only 1) night game a year.
- The players all want their jerseys from the game, and he thinks they can have them, but he has to check with compliance to see what the NCAA would say about it first.
- He's offering the families of all the retired Michigan jerseys if they want their numbers reactivated and given the "Michigan Legends" treatment, so they're remembered. Hoke will have the person wearing the 21 jersey read Desmond's book and give a report to the team on who he was and what he did for Michigan.
I'm jeleaous as hell that I could not attend UTL in person. Therefore I need to live vicariously through you.
I know how the game went, but what was the entire experience really like? Tell me how your day (night) went.
How was Game Day? How was it tailgating in the dark? Did y'all burn down the town post-game? Did bars stay open late? Any epic hook-ups with new friends made after the game when nobody would leave? Should we expect a boomlet of little Wolverines next June? Was any body able to actually get home before daylight?
C'mon people, give me stories!!! Any corresponding you-are-there video of the whole scene makes you an internet Viking.
For anyone who attended, did you notice just how frequently the audio was getting stuck on tracks? I'm just a caveman and haven't progressed much since CD days, but I don't think MP3 tracks get stuck that way-- or do they?-- but the CD player or whatever they were using was constantly getting jammed in the middle of songs. At first, I thought this might be some fancy effects by Sir Mix-a-Lot or something, but... no, it wasn't, unless they were doing it for almost every track on purpose because all the kids are doing it.
One of you techophiles will be better suited to prescribe a solution, but for an otherwise largely impeccable production of the most exciting event I've ever seen in person (including the Braylon game and the Virginia '95 game), the persistent audio glitch seemed weirdly amateurish.
So I am going to need some advice on what to get my wife as this is what she wrote me for my surprise 30th birthday present.
Twas four months and the night before daddy’s birthday and all through the house,
Connor and mommy were stirring, even Mickey Mouse;
