After I spend a glorious fall afternoon tailgating and getting ready to cheer on my Michigan Wolverines and all of the amazing young men who we've all followed and welcomed since the days they announced their commitments, I am going to return to my tailgate spot, celebrate what I hope will be a win against PSU and tune into the Arizona Wildcats as they battle the University of Spoiled Children. I will likely not have much of a voice because I am going to scream my ass off for the Wolverines, but I welcome anyone who is in the area to stop by and join us for what should be an excellent night-cap to a day of great football in A2.
I dont promise any food or beverages as they'll likely be exhausted between 11AM and kick-off, but you're free to come by, say hello, and enjoy the remaining hours of the evening.
- PLACE: BLUE LOT RV AREA (near Kipke Dr and Stadium Blvd) across from tunnel connecting Blue Lot to UofM Golf course lot
- SPOT: Directly next to Police building near train tracks that run along new indoor practice facility. Just look for the RV's and a big TV screen mounted to a Blue Trailer.
Enjoy your day... and GO BLUE!
P.S. Lots of talk about boycotts and player support. The players all walk by our tailgate, many with their parents, and often stop and chat. I can think of no better way to support them than shaking their hands and saying... GO BLUE!
Michigan's non-conference basketball tickets are on sale to the general public if you enter the code grthree
Warning: Arizona tickets are single seat only, and $60 a pop.
The rest of the home non-conference schedule is really really poor. I had to look up South Carolina State to see if they had a program. They do not.
At any rate, this is a chance to see the NCAA Runner-Ups in person without shelling out hundreds of dollars for season tickets(Or promising your first-born children to stub hub). You know the drill. mgoblue.com
I'm not entirely sure what to think of this promotional Youtube video for Arizona football, but I think it is hilarious.
In addition to a potential game with Arizona (if yesterday's gossip is true), we could potentially see RichRod go up against Ron English (as the coach of ASU) in that state, according to speculation here:
Good for English -- he has come a long way at EMU.
I just did a preliminary scan and I couldn't find anything even approximating what we have here...can anyone point me to a decent fan site?
Oh, and THANK YOU, Brian, for creating such a vibrant space, as well as networking it with so many other great sites about Michigan football. Every time I look around I realize how lucky we are to have you.
