"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Have you ever been so overwhelmed by experiencing the Big House that it has got the best of your emotions? For the home opener in 2010, my and one of my friends took her mom to her first ever Michigan game. It was her mom's birthday and everything. Her mom cried the first time she saw the team run out onto the field because she never thought she'd ever see that live.
So my question to you guys is, do you have any similar stories? Have you ever been overtaken by your emotions from experiencing the Big House live?
I know most of you are just waiting to click on this link and then ask the mods to delete it, but relax, this is real information... thanks to Touchdowns no flags for grabbing the picture last night...
Last night was the Michigan Coaches Tour in Chicago, they had lots of postcards/fliers made by the athletic department/alumni association. One in particular was a flier for the Michigan opener vs. Alabama. It said "History in the making... be part of it" and depicted what certainly appears to be denard in the UTL/Michigan State style jerseys, and wearing the #1.
Mods or someone embed the image below for me please as I don't know how to do it from my Mac.

Assume that someone at least approved this? I would suspect it could signal something coming down the line...
I love the Rose Bowl, but I am sorry, there is zero reason the bowls should be part of the play-off system. The B1G's slavish loyalty to the Rose Bowl is based on some antiquated notion that no longer exits. There is no reason that the bowls can't continue on as they have while having a completely separate play-off run by the NCAA.
Possibly the best one yet.

Andrew interviewed incoming freshman James Ross the other day. He talks about where Michigan wants him to play, how big he is right now, and Greg Mattison's tastes in music.
While I realize a majority of you will go "Duh", this is just another example of why this coaching staff is dominating on the recruiting trail.
This is one of our vaunted, committed recruits. I can imagine that the family feel, as well as the full court press an uncommitted guy will get.
Just a days worth of letters from the greatest college in the land! #goblue :)
