this may be of some local interest
I didn't get to see the game (only highlights) so correct me if I'm wrong but it looked like 4-5 of Denard's runs came on pass plays were he saw nothing was open and took off. If Denard can consistently do this he would become even more dangerous than he already is.
This is not to complain about the price of the food at the stadium (which is freaking crazy), but rather to verify.
At halftime today, I went to the cart directly across from the south end of section 21 and bought two bottles of pop and a box of popcorn. The prices on the sign were $4 each for pop and $5 for popcorn. I handed the girl $13 and started to turn away. She said, "It's 14." I added it up for her, "$8 for pop plus 5 for popcorn is $13." "Popcorn is $6", she said. I told her the sign says $5, which it did, so that's what I would pay. She said okay and I went back to my seat.
The question is, I've NEVER known the listed prices in the stadium to be wrong. They get up there with sticker numbers before games and make changes all the time, and this was just one of the "superpretzel" carts. Between that and the fact that she didn't argue with me but just said "ok", I'm wondering if she and the other kids working the cart were trying to skim? Should I email the Athletic Department?
This week has seen a lot of upsets and ranked teams getting beaten.
Any chance we make it to the top 25? Discuss!
Luke looks somewhat clueless. Bauserman sucks big time. Braxton is NOT ready for primetime and they lost 24-6 still having three timeouts left. Hall was the only bright spot on an offense that did not see the field all that much.
Enjoyed the hell out of that game!
[ED:BISB; I love it when Buckeyes lose, too. But LUL SUCKEYE comments will be vanquished]
4 arrests during U-M/EMU game
It was a quiet afternoon for law enforcement in Michigan Stadium, with just 4 arrests and 4 citations as the Wolverines beat the Eastern Michigan Eagles, 31-3.
University of Michigan Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Diane Brown said the arrests included 2 for minors in possession of alcohol, 1 for unlawful entry and 1 for violation of the controlled substances act.
Three of the citations were for alcohol in the stadium, and the other was for violation of stadium rules.
In addition, 25 people were ejected from the game — 9 for alcohol in the stadium, 7 for possessing someone else’s ID, 6 for violating stadium rules, and 3 for disorderly conduct.
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.
