also duty-free guys falling over and grabbing their shins
At one point during the game, they announced that some kind of super high-res photo had been taken of the stadium, with approximately eleventy billion pixels. It was said that after it was posted, you'd be able to zoom in and see all the individual people in the stands.
They said it would be posted within 24 hours of the game, but I don't recall where exactly they said it would be... anyone know?

SI story about his toughness here.
[Ed-M: I confirmed this with Ablauf (see Dear Diary). Here's what he said:
We (Michigan) and the Big Ten will count the stats toward our team records. The NCAA will not because of a rule that states that you must complete three quarters of play for the statistics to count for NCAA purposes.
NCAA will count it as a win, but the stats won't count.]
ESPN reporting that the NCAA ruled the stats for the WMU game are to be vacated due to the shortened game. Not sure about the W, L. Attendance remains in the books.
Torrent of last night's epic game is up at MGoVideo.
I apologize in advance if I missed any cuts, etc. One of my best friends got married last night, so I watched the game from beginning to end while capturing it, and didn't get done until around 3:00AM, then I stayed up and did the commercial cuts and started the encoding process. So, long story short, I was up until 4:00AM and was under the influence of alcohol at the time.
Anyway, enjoy guys, and I'm jealous of anyone that got to be there last night! Go Blue!
