that is nice bonus change
Alright guys and gals let's talk tailgating one more time.
Wondering what the tailgating hot spots are around the stadium?
Where do you like to set up camp?
Where is most reasonable? Easy access? Affordable entry?
I know a lot of people love the Golf Course, but will it be open tomorrow? Might rain.
I have tailgated in the golf course a few times and really enjoy being there, but what time does it open tomorrow morning??
I noticed the similar thread posted earlier about personal traditions/rituals, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for.
My MGoFamily has been growing recently. I now have two small children running around in Maize & Blue without really knowing why. :)
What I am trying to figure out is what kind of family traditions we can start to implement in order to get the kids excited for Michigan Football Saturdays.
What traditions do you do with your kids/family? Do you do anything to get them hyped for gamedays?
I posted a thread earlier in the week about taking my son to his first UM game. I didn't know where I was sitting, but didn't care because the tickets were FREE!!!!!!
I am geeked to be going for the first time in years, and sharing the tradition with my son!!!!
Where's everyone else sitting?!?!
Did I mention I am geeked??? Have I used enough punctuation!?!??!
MOD EDIT - at the suggestion of a couple people, the photo of the ticket is down as the barcode was visible and that open the doors to scams. - LSA
There has been some discussion on this board about how it is that Brady Hoke can recruit so well and why it is that players think so much of him. There has even been some skepticism expressed that this is even true.
Much of this doubt comes from his admittedly bland and evasive demeanor in press conferences. In that arena, he often does not come off as a man you would run through a brick wall for.
But there is of course a whole different side of him that the players get to see that we don't. Read this quote from an article in The Wolverine about the team's pre-game routine, specifically the morning wake-up call:
"Even if he is not at your door, you can hear Coach Mattison screaming to wake up," Ryan said. "He's the alarm."
Mattison is docile compared to Hoke, however, who unfurls an array of measures to make sure his players' eyes are wide open.
"Coach Hoke comes in jumping on people - he will jump on me and he will pat me on my back and my neck and he'll mess with my hair," said Clark, riled but entertained. "He makes sure he wakes you up."
"I'll land right on top of him, give him a little pop [with my forearm]," Hoke confirmed. "I always do that. I don't have to wake him up, but we have fun. It's just something I've done since I was an assistant coach."
Can you imagine Urban Meyer doing something like that? If I was a player and he did it, I would call the cops.
Central Michigan held on for a 20-16 victory over the vaunted Chattanooga Mocs last night, but there was a bright spot for CMU...former UM running back Thomas Rawls rushed for 123 yards and one TD on 25 carries. He also caught 2 passes for 7 yards.
I'm really happy for the guy, glad he found a landing spot and hopefully he finishes his career strongly for the Chips.
