this guy evidently hired to work for AD
Michigan fliers has posted a nice new video with an aerial view of the practice fields, stadium, and scoreboards. You can find this at http://www.michiganstadiumaerials.com/. It gives a great spatial understanding of the three outdoor practice fields next to the fieldhouse. It turns out that the video was shot during practice, as you can see both natural turf fields in full use (although you'd be hard pressed to identify anything like Hoke pointing, etc.)
The aerial view also gives a good perspective on the new scoreboards. You can see video at the far distance of the plane, making it obvious that you'll be able to see those screens easily anywhere in the stadium.
I am neither an architect nor a designer, but the new scoreboards seem to be sized "just right" in proportion to the stadium. I'm not sure they would look right if they were twice their current size. Regardless, they seem more than large enough.
Near the beginning, you can also see the new basketball PDC next to Crisler, which is looking more and more finished.
Now, if one of you who does this regularly can point me to a tutorial on embedding video, I would be much obliged.

The founder of which is obviously a loyal reader-
(Edit: OK, there's a picture of the Maple Street Press Kickoff Preview with Hoke circled...but when I try and imbed it, I resize it, but it still comes out as huge, so to not blow up any computers, just check the link. And yeah, yeah, that's what she said. That's my line).
MGoBlog's reach grows and grows....
I would have posted this in the other thread, but it was buried and probably wouldn't be checked much. I found the full version that was just published on ESPN (per youtube), and I didn't see it posted yet, so I decided to share.
Some people probably won't like it, but deal with it. I will probably end up playing this before leaving my house on Saturdays heading to campus. I, for one, think I might be warming up to it.
Think Gibbons has had some issues? Apparently former UM commit Anthony Fera seems to be having some problems of his own and is currently not with the team...
According to a report in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the 20-year-old Fera pleaded guilty to charges of purchasing alcohol by a minor and disorderly conduct on Aug. 4 in State College. The incident occurred June 7. Citing court documents, the Post-Gazette reported that Fera has been involved in two alcohol-related issues since last April.
Not really sure, but the way the story is written, it sound like he's got some real issues beyond a few arrests. Dependency perhaps? Not really sure...
I remember this kid REALLY badmouthing us after he switched commitments, but it sounds like he's got bigger fish to fry than dealing with Schadenfreude. Life can be confusing for these young men, hope he figures it out...
