FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
2012 DE Chris Wormley has already become a fan favorite, and has been added to everyone's wish list for the '12 recruiting class. He was in the Big House today for the game, and told me he enjoyed himself. "It was good, I talked to the coaches a little bit about things," he said. The hot topic with Wormley was that although he's a Michigan fan, Ohio State currently leads because they were showing him the most "love."
Now that September 1st has passed, and the coaches are allowed to make more contact with him, they're making every effort to do so. "The coaches told me how much they want me. I want them to keep doing that, and just make me feel better about them," said Chris. It seems that time and more communication can cure that, which the coaches will continue to do.
I asked him if this visit, and the win, helped Michigan's chances at all. He said, "Yeah, a little." Chris likes to play it close to the vest, but I think this was a step in the right direction for him. The coaches invited him to the game, and will be able to now show him more "love."
I have never been more confident on third down situations in all my football watching life. That was something else. 14 of 19 on the day. I can't remeber ever seeing a conversion rate that good.
Didn't see if Dileo ever got a shot. Was Gallon yanked after that flub? Can't believe that happened again.
I am fortunate enough to have tickets in the new club seats. For those who have not been in the seats, there are 3 speakers per section that face us in the crowd and play the miked band and what little Rawk music there was. Since there are only 8 rows of seats the sound bounces off the glass behind us and the noise level is very high. I am wondering if people in the regular seats found that the decibel level was considerably higher than anything last season. I am hoping so because despite being farther away from the field I screamed like crazy.
I thought the game was great and wouldn't change much of anything. My daughter (16) thinks there should have been more Rawk music and less band. I'm more of a traditionalist and feel if the band is audible, I am very happy to have them provide the music rather than piped in music.
Anyway, please let me know what those of you in the stands thought of the noise level. BTW, I loved the fireworks and the Brock walk. I don't think there was a dry eye in the house.
