It is game week and I am jacked up. However, with the rededication taking place Saturday, I have some questions on times. Ever since my dad started taking me to games back in 1994, every opening weekend, we would go watch the drumline at Revelli Hall. As a student, I have continued this for the first game every year to watch the drumline. They usually come out about an hour and a half before kickoff. So my question is, with the festivities being held before the game, what time will the drumline be playing? Also, what time will the rededication start? I want to make sure I am in the stadium to see it all. Is the schedule online somewhere?
I hate to create a post just for this but I cannot find where there might be info on a RR presser today. Is there not one until next Monday? Last year was there one the week before only because of the reaction to the allegations? Thanks for any info!
In a large booming voice from the sky:
"Band, Take the field!!"
The greatest marching band in history pours out of the tunnel at 220 bpm, eventually folding out into the fanfare M
The band moves up and down the field, playing The Victors, Varsity, and The Yellow and Blue
In the north endzone, the drum major does his famous back bend to rile up the students even more
109,901 (or is it 115k?) rise as one, cheering on as the band returns to midfield, and forms up for the entrance of the team
A hush comes over the crowd, it is all of a sudden very dusty, as Brock Mealer makes his way out from the tunnel... a hush erupting into a roar as 109,901+ Cheer on his immeasurable spirit
109,901 Cheering, ready, ready for another year, football is back at last... It's happened before, it will happen again, but never quite like this. The rededication. Brock, Our readiness to avenge games from years past... the Victors blares from the band and the team storms the field, hitting the banner, and ready to make us all proud
Hi of 71 degrees with a 10% chance of rain. That is a great opening day temp!
First, I am as sick of this as I am sure all of you are. So I promise that this is the last one this season from me.
Just think its important to see how Michigan is portrayed in the national media.
I have never been to a game before, and with all going on this weekend I think its just a great game to start with.
I have been a UM fan for as long as I can remember and living in the heart of Bucknut country has never swayed me. Even my days working at OSU Med Center I wore Maize and Blue running shoes.
Best is that I get to share the experience with my 10 y/o son who is getting a lot of heat from his OSU buddies to switch to the dark side.
It will be a great day for he and I!
