Here's the pertinent info:
The University of Michigan football team will host a preseason pep rally this Friday (Sept. 3) at the Diag on central campus, just hours before the 2010 season kicks off against Connecticut inside the newly renovated Michigan Stadium. The event, which is free and open to the public, will start at 6 p.m. and last approximately one hour.
Featured speakers will include head coach Rich Rodriguez, director of athletics Dave Brandon, a...nd season captains Stephen Schilling and Mark Moundros. In addition, the Michigan cheer and dance teams will be on hand to perform.
Come early for some special giveaways, contests, and events for both students and other fans alike! This pep rally will be one of the last things the team remembers before they suit up for game day, so let's make sure to support them! Please invite everyone you know.
Sad. He was released by the UFL's Sacramento Mountain Lions. Still a legend forever.
I just started watching the preview, and in the intro they showed a clip from last year that I had a question about.
In the clip they showed Michigan coming down a tunnel with one of the players (I didn't see the #) in front of everyone else. Then an opposing trainer/cheerleader/? comes up the tunnel and shoulders the Michigan player. The Michigan player responded by shoving the doucebag, and then the scene cut off.
Does anyone remember what game this happened in and what, if any, were the circumstances around that moment? It really pissed me off, and I'm going to want to beat that team even more this year.
Sorry if this post seems useless, but I am extremely football itchy right now and this clip made me want to f*ck someone's shit up!
Calling all Michigan fans with tickets to this weekend's game against UConn:
On behalf of all those alumni and fans like myself that do not have the priviledge of being at the game, I am writing to ask each and every one that is going to be in attendance to yell a little louder and more often than they normally would. I ask this because, if you do so, I think it will make me and probably others feel better at having to watch the game at home and resort to yelling at the television (and scaring our toddler children in the meantime). Its not healthy for us non-ticket holders to bottle up all the aggression and stress that comes from watching these games on TV and it might make our therapists jobs easier if you all could serve as our de facto vents.
Thank you in advance for your consideration,

IIRC, Shaw had to take a test yesterday, and the results would determine if he is eligible or not. Since it's been quiet, I'm wondering if anyone has heard anything from insiders. It seems like the coaches would want to know ASAP, and that'd be a hard secret to keep.
Will join WCC for other sports per ESPN's Andy Katz
