landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
I've thought this over and I don't really like this because after this goes into affect we'll never get the chance to play home and homes with LSU, Alabama, or Oklahoma. We'll add a conference game, but it could be sacrificing a home game to go play at Indiana, Minnesota, or Illinois.
So Notre Dame first. Anyone else feel their only two "challenges" left are USC and Stanford? I feel they can easily go 8-4 and possible 10-2 if they play mistake free.
Michigan wise and how weak the B1G is looking. I can see these games as almost for sure wins(depending of course if our O can be consistent as well as D) SDSU, Minnesota, North Western, Purdue, and honestly Iowa.
The other games are coin flips. But there are no team so far on our schedule that I think is going to destroy us. Which is a relief compared to how good OSU, Nebraska, Iowa, and MSU were predicted to be going into the season.
So, I have been going to Michigan games for a bit over three decades. I like tradition but am amenable to change, including the Rawk music blaring in the stadium. Rather than be a naysayer, I'd like to make the thing better. Here are some thoughts:
1. Use volume more effectively. Not everything needs to be played at eleven.
2. I like hearing the band - today was pretty good that way. Especially percussion section.
3. No Rawk music at all when the team is coming on the field. Not even a peep. Just hear Brady Hoke say "This is Michigan for godsakes", then the team runs on the field to the band playing.
Okay, with that said, now comes the part for audience participation: music selection. What would people actually want to hear? I think the following should make the cut:
1. Seven Nation Army - just because it was awesome during the ND game and the White Stripes came from Detroit.
2. Howlin' for you (The Black Keys) - because the chant would be cool in the stadium and I don't know anyone else using it yet.
3. Rocky & Bullwinkle (The Michigan Marching Band) - Yes, I like the Blues Brothers thing, but I grew up making moose ears at the stadium
What thinks the Board?

Having attended Michigan's third game of the year, Blazefire commented "Did anyone else at the game buy popcorn? Was it $5?" That pretty much sums up this game. I watched a free live stream at home and I still feel like I got ripped off.
Florida/Tenn is wrapping up, so to stay on the front page, we (hopefully) have a good night of games with OSU/Miami and Okla/FSU headlining. Ahhhhh, football season.
Next week's opponent, San Diego State, is at home against Gameday banner darling Washington State.
Some notes from the first quarter:
* Ronnie Hillman has 44 yards on 10 carries in the half.
* Ryan Lindley is 9/14 for 105 yards.
Looking forward to this matchup - if we can slow down their ground game this will position us well for Big Ten play.
