Video companion to Picture Pages - Jake Ryan Fights the Power, Again.
Wha'hoppon: Jake Ryan takes the correct position when a power run comes at him on the edge. By engaging his blocker and keeping his outside shoulder free, he maintains outside contain and squeezes the run back inside. It still goes for eight yards after Brandin Hawthorne comes too far inside and gets blocked by the center, but it wasn't as bad as the plays shown in the previous two Picture Pages.

I thought I would check with the board here regarding my plans for the ND game this Saturday. I do not have tickets for the game, bu I am planning to travel to Ann Arbor for the "world's biggest wine and cheese party" (TM).
I have an MRI at U of M hospital Taubman center scheduled for 2:20 PM Saturday. Due to the influx of traffic, I assume I'll need to schedule my arrival for approximately 3 AM last Wednesday to have any hope of making it in time. The appointment should take between 1 and two hours. So, at approximately 4 PM, I will begin my journey here:
If I intend to see and do everything I want to see, I'll need to move quikly. I'll begin by walking south past Palmer Field. At Geddes Ave, I'll hang a right and wander through the Diag, stopping to pray on each cardinal direction around the center. During this walk, I will be tweeting to find out where my peeps at. That will determine my next destination.
From the Diag, I will attempt to make my way towards State Street, singing a marching tune to keep my spirits on my long trek!
After a brief visit at BOX and the other house parties, I will probably continue to head west towards the stadium. It should be approximately 6PM at this point, and the band should be prepping at Ebel field. I will depart from there and wander further south towards the golf course tailgates. I promise not to invest too heavily in the house parties.
After all this wandering, it will be near 7 PM, and time to get into downtown and find somewhere with a television, a seat and a beer.
At this point I will have my legs sent into the shop for their 50,000 mile service. I get it free with the prefered options plan, you know.
You don't think I can do it, do you? You don't think I can walk over four miles, drink heavily, make it through the night game, then walk an additional mile back to my car at the medical center at 11PM, do you? Well fie on thee!
But seriously, if somebody could save me a spot at Bar Louie or BWW who gets there like four hours ahead of time, that'd be awesome.
