From what I understand the (much maligned) student section really got their act together and showed up in force for warm-ups. Any confirmation from those whom were there. Was this an organized effort, a la Maize Rage?
I inquired about the The "unofficial" weather for UTL-2 courtesy of the USAF for KARB. They are calling for a 55% chance of rain, high near 81, and 76% cloud cover with winds out of the west at 6mph. The highest chance of rain is in the morning and gradually decreasing through out the day.
Game time is expected to be clear and dry, 74 deg and near calm winds. If you plan on attending College Game Day broadcast you might want to take a poncho with you just in case.
The forecast for CMU was dead on as I experienced rain on the north side of town on the drive in about 11am. Then the clouds started to disapate. The humidity was extremely high yesterday. Some of the weather sites and even some MGoBloggers thought the rain would stay to the south with lower humidities.
Great Job USAF Weather Flight. Keep up the good work and your support of Michigan Football.
I have had a Fanvision for the past three seasons that I have always used at Michigan Stadium, but it did not work yesterday. For those who don't know what a Fanvision is, it is a small controller with a screen that provides real-time stats as well as replays and streams of games from around the country. I went online and couldn't find anything definitive as to whether or not Fanvision service at the Big House has ended. Did anyone else with a Fanvision have this problem and/or know if the service is over? It really was great to have one.
P.S. The webiste http://www.fanvision.com/ doesn't list football on the website anymore, so I am assuming they ended service, but I still can't find anything that definitively says so.
In the gym this morning I had the (dis)pleasure of listening to Lou Holtz, Mark May, and Rece Davis on "College Football Final." In case anyone is wondering, they would have been hard to avoid. Multiple TVs blaring, etc. (I'll admit to having at some least some interest in the program.)
They showed the Michigan highlights right after Notre Dame's and moved into a quick discussion of next week's game. It was noted that the next two games will be the last in the series for now. Holtz took the opportunity to say that Hoke's "chicken" remarks "could come back to haunt" Michigan. When asked by Davis whether he thought ND was afraid to keep playing Michigan, he said "Nooooooooooooo."
Mike McCray did not play yesterday. Was it injury, suspension, or redshirting?
