The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
<cool story bro>
As Harbaugh and the players were walking from their bus, someone tried to get near Harbaugh with a drone. Evidently, and not surprisingly, this resulted in instant, fire 'em up fury. Harbaugh tried swatting at the drone until the operator decided it was best to vacate the premises.
Unfortunately, I have no pictures. The drone operator probably does... but we'll see if he ever surfaces with the footage.

Go Blue! Beat UTAH!!
Are there tons of Michigan fans? is the Harbus there? pictures please
This may be the wrong place to ask, but are there any friendlies out there that are holding tailgate spots 2 of us can come visit? Trying to get a good SLC gameplan together. Thanks in advance.
With the first game of the 2015 season upon us, this got me reminiscing about my first Michigan game. It was 1990 ( I was only 9) in South Bend against #1 Notre Dame. We had endzone seats which was cool because we could see Touchdown Jesus over the other side of the stadium. I know a lot of people hate Notre Dame, but they have an amazing campus. And even though Michigan ended up losing 28-24, I fell in love with Michigan because of that experience.
So what was everybody else's first experience, home and/or away? What memories did you take away?
I often catch the games on the radio when work/family/cord-cutting doesn't permit watching on the tube. With FS1 not as widely available as the more typical outlets, some of you may be in that same boat with me tonight. I see, per mgoblue.com, that the radio broadcast team will be the same as last year with Brandstatter (play-by-play), Dierdorf (color), Karsch (sideline), and Jansen (pregame).
I thought the play-by-play was a little dodgy last year as Brandstatter and Dierdorf both seem better suited for the color spot. Maybe Brando will hit his stride with the same second-year jump we often look from the players, but he's playing out of position. If a return of Beckmann was not palatable (please don't take this as an invitation to discuss his politics), I was hoping they might bring in someone with more play-by-play background. At times last year, it was tough to figure out what exactly was happening on the field. In hindsight, maybe that was a blessing.
For so many years, Carl Grapentine and Frank Beckmann were the voices that I associated with Michigan football. Hard for this old dog to learn new tricks.
