does one normally change in response to success?
Looks like Indiana hired a coach who at least has the potential to be successful. Still I would be shocked if they ever made any noise in the BigTen.
W - WMU
W - ND (we've beaten them with less, and this is home)
W - EMU
W - SDSU
W - Minnesota
L - @Nwestern (they win a shootout)
W - @MSU (we played them close but match up better on the line than 2009 or 2010)
W - Purdue (take it, hope)
W - @Iowa (they've lost too much, and we played them close even when overmatched)
L - @Illinois (maybe we break the Zook curse this year, but i think it will be tough)
L - Nebraska (most certain loss on schedule)
W - Ohio (bad QB situation, unclear coaching situation there/Hokamania here produce first win in ages)
PLACE: 2nd in Legends Division
BOWL: Capital One Bowl WOOT! WOOT!
As everyone on this blog knows, whence the football season approaches, THE KNOWLEDGE appears on these very pages and provides season reviews
these reviews are better than any predictions or projections (whether they may be based on statistics or stupid guessing), because these are made with the knowedge of the future
in a previous post, THE KNOWLEDGE had provided information on Michigan's season record, and also noted that THE KNOWLEDGE will provide the results of the first game
for the remaining games, THE KNOWLEDGE will only provide pointers to help the competitors with THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE, the greatest contest established here or at other blogs
as noted previously, Michigan's season record will be 12-2
this includes a win in a BCS bowl game
now, onto the game against the pesky horses from Kalamazoo
the results will be as follows:
- Michigan will win easily
- The defense will restrict the mighty Bronco offense to 17 points or less
- The offense will be rather slow and un-electric in the middle part of the game
- Michigan will score 38 points
Saturday night, when these events have occurred as per the notes above
THE KNOWLEDGE shall soar
and leave every doubter is a trail of dust
I write on behalf of my sis-in-law; a recent transplant from Nashville to the midwest. She will be taking in her first Michigan game when we play Purdue. She is coming in from DTW with a friend who is visiting tomorrow at noon-ish. They wanted to go to Ann Arbor to take in the town and the pre-game what have you's.
Question - if they try to park North of the stadium, just how farth north would you recommend? They obviously would like to get their car out prior to gametime and minimize what they pay, but know and are willing to pay whatever they need to. Should they wrap around on US-23 and come in from the North? How much of a delay in traffic at 12:30 would they expect?
Thansk for any insight or tips you can provide; as a kid, we always came in from and parked South of the Stadium, so my knowledge of the happenings and crowds north of the stadium is limited.
I was on Facebook and there was a link from mgoblue about some of the new security rules. One of them is that small cameras are permitted as long as they don't have detachable lenses. Is there something special about cameras with detachable lenses that I don't know about? I will admit that if I take my 500mm lens, it might be distracting to people around me but my 300mm lens is pretty small. What's even funnier is that I can get a small camera without a detachable lens that gives me an equivalent to my big lens. Are they afraid that someone may be selling pictures from the game and they aren't getting a taste of that money? There are two holes ot that theory...trademark infringement and the official pictures are far nicer than anything from the stands.
anyways, I guess this means that if I do go, I'll have to borrow my former non-SLR camera from my mom.
City wants more money, University thinks they're over charging. But how it might hamper you-
The new traffic control plan will have the city's police officers manually managing — without signals in operation — the Stadium Boulevard and Main Street intersection starting two hours before game time. All other intersections along Ann Arbor-Saline Road will operate by signals — not manually — and will operate based on the normal weekend schedule. After the game, Ann Arbor-Saline Road will be one way, heading south to I-94, as has historically been the case. But the State Street corridor will operate by signals — not manually — and will operate based on the normal weekend schedule both before and after the game.
If you're coming or leaving from/to the South, expect it to take longer.
If you want to assess for yourself, it has a nice breakdown of the salary demands. Why it might be a problem? I couldn't have phrased this any worse:
Crawford said eight signs and signals technicians will be out doing traffic control on game days this year, but they'll be doing less work. In the past, the city had all 12 of its technicians out.
