At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
Like a number of other Mgobloggers, I coach football. Sign up for the football leagues up north is set to close on Friday for this upcoming season. The numbers of kids signing up for football all over the NW part of the lower peninsula are way, way down. In our area, in the last 5 years we have gone from fielding something like 18 teams to fielding possibly 6 this year. That is an incredible drop in participation and if it is seen across the country does not bode well for our favorite sport.
As one who played football until late in life I think it would be a shame to see the demise of such an exceptional game. Perhaps it is inevitable though. Please share your experiences and insights on this topic. I am hoping for good news from you all.

2019 Home opener (Sept. 7th)
As posted on the front page, the #11, #21, #47, #48, #87 and #98 jerseys will be retired on November 28.
However, what wasn't posted was that they will be honored in a display at the stadium concourse.
"The right plan is to retire them and display them in Towsley Museum which is connected to Schembechler Hall," added Hackett. "Because we don't have the display area inside the stadium, we have found a high profile area on the concourse where fans can see and honor these retired jerseys."
days until Michigan football starts fall camp!
And there are ....
days until Joe Kerridge and the rest of the team take the field against Utah in Salt Lake City!
