I know the FanCam was up for a few minutes last night. Does anyone know what the deal is?
On the other side of the country, former Michigan assistant coach Jack Harbaugh watched the game with his son, Jim, the former Wolverines QB and San Francisco 49ers coach, who potentially could’ve replace Rich Rodriguez instead of Hoke in January.
“That may be the greatest football game that I’ve ever witnessed,”Harbaugh said Sunday before the Seattle-San Francisco game. “What a minute and 30 seconds. And the poise of Brady Hoke, unknown to mankind. There were 110,000 people screaming, back and forth we go, and this guy stands there and … well he did have a drop of sweat on his brow.”
Television coverage of the Big House frenquently showed a Maize Pom-Pom waving chant that looked disturbingly like something that takes place at Atlanta Braves games. It seemed very, uh, untraditional. But it also seemed like the whole stadium was into it, so maybe it was something good. We just couldn't tell on tv. Can anyone enlighten me?
(While I'm at it, I'm flying my boys up for the epic game with tsio this year. Any advice on where to look for a hotel? Thanks.)
I wanted to get the video up earlier, but I drove 8 hours from Marquette to Ann Arbor for the game and just got back before Midnight on Sunday.
I decided to take some HD video throughout the night, because, well something told me this was going to be epic.
When the game gets crazy my hands get shaky, so I apologize, but I was be like dang.
Yahoo! has a great gallery of photos from the game, and from the season. The first 83 are from the ND game and the last 40 are from Western Michigan. Personally, my favorite picture is Picture #44, with Taylor Lewan lifting up Denard. If you want to see Brian Kelly looking like he want's to kill someone, check out Picture #5.
Hey fellas, after the greatest game ever...I wanted to share what I have been hearing. First I would like to apologize to mgoblogers and scoutexile for jumping the gun with O'brien's commitment. Lots of miscommunication...not scoutexile's fault. Mine for jumping the gun, got a little too excited. But from the sound of things O'Brien had a great time at the game.
Just tidbits here and there, if you know something we don't.... share!
NJ CB Yuri Wright will visit for either SDSU or Minny. Hope the coaches make an impression. I think it is a four way race between us, cal, RU, UGA. IMO he would headline this class if he were to commit, cherry on the cake.
CA WR Jordan Peyton had a great time at the game yesterday. Here is his interview with scoutexile on midnight maize: http://midnightmaize.blogspot.com/2011/09/jordan-payton-visit-reaction.html
Anyone have word on Darius Powe's visit plans? I really want him in this class. Oregon State has been balls so far losing to both San Jose State and Wisconsin, I think this can only help the wolverines.
GA CB Shaq Wiggins has the wolverines as his leader after he visited Gainesville this weekend. I know some Mgoblogers are worried about his reported height, rivals says he is 5'7. But by most accounts he is 5'10. He wooed both osu and um coaches, as both schools offered after he camped out. FWIW he is an early high three star on 247. Will visit either for minny or purdue.
OH CB Cameron Burrows was at the game. Hails from Trotwood-madison, a school we have had some luck with. Many consider him a buckeye lock, but at least we are getting him on campus. I know it is early but coaches need to offer asap. Projected to be the best CB in ohio for the 2013 class.
2013 IL OT Ethan Popic was in attendance. Learn this name, we'll pop up in the recruiting cycle, no doubt. Has early offers from the illinois, MSU, ND, and wisconsin.
2013 IL OT Kyle Bosch was also in attendance had a good time. Been on campus a hand full of times. Hope the coaches put out an offer. Should be one of the midwest's best.
If you're a parent of a recruit, how does brain kelly going ape shit on his players come off? Can't be good, hope it helps with Elmer. Elmer has named a top three of UM, ND, and Wiscy...no MSU. He said he hasn't been hearing much from MSU.
