Does anyone have recent experience bringing a DSLR camera into Michigan Stadium? The current rule on the mgoblue web site is:
"Single-frame flash photography is allowed, however, cameras with lenses longer than six inches will not be allowed into the stadium. All forms of video and motion-picture cameras are strictly prohibited. Guests are also forbidden to use lighting or camera support pods at Michigan Stadium."
My camera lens is shorter than 6 inches, but the camera and lens together is slightly longer. Does anyone actually measure this? Or do they just say no if you have an SLR? I really want to take pictures as my son is in the ROTC color guard for the game.
Saturday is the start of a new season as Michigan looks to get back on track against Miami (NTM). Here's your weekly chance to look like THE_KNOWLEDGE and amaze us all with your prediction skills.
Proceed, good people.
I'm sure many of you remember the story of Cass Tech QB Jayru Campbell. For those of you who do not, here is a refresher: Jayru was a one time Michigan target (never offered but I believe he visited a couple times) and Michigan State commit who was sent to jail earlier this year after body slamming a security guard at his school.
Per a tweet from The D Zone (they follow HS players in MI) today at 4pm EDT, Jayru Campbell was released from prison this afternoon.
Per a tweet from The D Zone at 6pm EDT Jayru Campbell has been arrested again.
At first I thought I had read a tweet from months ago. I did not. Apparently, and amazingly enough given the NFL news this week, Jayru has been arrested for assaulting his girlfriend. The story is still developing, but here is a link to the breaking story on Channel 4 News Detroit:
He is most certainly not going to receive an offer to play for a D1 school any longer, which is a shame, as he had a lot of potential. Hopefully he can get himself the help he needs. There is no excuse for assaulting someone you supposedly love.
Well both Deadspin and TMZ reporting AP is in trouble so in today's day and age these are actually quite legitimate sites for breaking news. Sounds like he hit his 11 year son with a switch. TMZ with the more inflammotry "child abuse" headline of course.
Fun times at NFL HQ.
Prepare for the litany of social media backlash... "back in my day a good switching was fine..."
Minnesota Vikings superstar Adrian Peterson has been indicted for child abuse in North Montgomery County, TX ... TMZ Sports has learned. Sources connected to Peterson tell us ... the alleged victim is a male child from Minnesota who was visiting Adrian back in May at AP's home in Texas.
We're told the child returned home to his mother in Minn. who noticed injuries and took the child to a doctor. A short time later, the doctor contacted authorities in Texas to report Adrian.
Child Protective Services confirms they are working on a case involving Peterson and say the alleged victim is an 11-year-old boy.
Peterson was indicted in Montgomery County for reckless or negligent injury to a child, this according to MyFOX Houston 26.
It may seem crazy, but this game was 5 years ago today:
Are we better off now than we were then? Which team would win, 2014 Michigan or 2009 Michigan? What's the one thing/decision you would have changed from the last 5 years?
I don't know, I guess half a decade is as good a period as any to look back on, and it is kind of ironic that the first of the three exciting wins against Notre Dame comes almost exactly 5 years before our worst loss ever.
50 colleges are participating - with UofM on the list.
kind of cool I guess
