As a refresher, the great and powerful Hackett announced back in February that a home night game was being planned this season.
As of this writing, kickoff for BYU, MSU, Rutgers and OSU are TBA.
I'm liking the reasoning that, perhaps, it could be MSU this year. How fun would that be?
EDIT: Stand corrected. Missed the reversal announcement.
I know we all love talking uniforms around these parts. ESPN's uniform
analyst columnist Paul Lukas has a nice rundown of most of the changes throughout college football heading into the 2014 season. Michigan bits (UTL uniforms, replacing "Michigan" on helmet bumper to the block M) have already been covered here, but it's always interesting to see the new crop of unifroms.
YouTube user 'Mitercut' has posted some incredible POV videos of Michigan Stadium and Ann Arbor. Mitercut uses a drone with a GoPro camera attached to get the views. Well worth the look!
EDIT: Sorry for the linking problem. The link is on the bold title.
Michigan vs Notre Dame UTL (II?) It starts out with a few seconds of darkness…wait for the shot!
Michigan Stadium in winter. (Preparing for hockey?)
I am going to have to miss UTL2 and I would like to record it on my computer. I have verizon FIOS and there I can play TV channels on my computers. My plan was to record the whole game using a screen-recording software like Camtasia (triggerred by a windows task based on a timer)but have run into a snag. A 2 minute video is coming out to around 500 MB!
I have tried everything I could think of...reducing screen res to 1280x1020, making the window small and recording only small portion of the screen, using compression settings etc. Not making a big dent. I just don't get it. My files usually from camtasia are of the order of 20-30MB for a 2 minute capture. My guess is the super fast transitions of video (as opposed to me recording a tutorial on how to do something on a computer) bump up the amount of data that needs to be stored.
I still do not understand how people like Thorin do it. Please help!
So... I'm going to UTL2 after being forced to miss UTL1*. For normal games, my family parks just south of the Kroger on industrial. But, for Notre Dame my brother-in-law and I are planning on borrowing an RV to tailgate properly. And, to tailgate properly, we're planning on going to either the Golf Course or Pioneer.
My question for those on the board more experienced with RV tailgating is: do I need to buy an RV pass for either the Golf Course or Pioneer, or can I just drive the RV to either location sufficiently early and expect to get in?
Unfortunately, online I can only find season RV passes for either the Golf Course or Pioneer - I cannot find a single game pass for either location. Thus, if I must buy a pass and cannot find one on Stubhub, am I already too late to acquire one?
Or, if I can just drive up, what time would the MGoBoard recommend I show up?
Essentially, any information you can give me would be greatly appreciated. As you can guess, I've never personally tailgated at Michigan with an RV so I don't know all the ins-and-outs. Therefore, any tips would be greatly appreciated.
*I was the best man in a wedding... in Ohio... and all her family were Buckeyes. Still, I got to see the 4th quarter live so I can't complain too much.
So a lot of people were speaking in superlatives last night, and rightfully so. But it has not been all that long since we've had a miracle comeback on a last second bomb.
So what was bigger for you, UTL or the Kansas game?
Both were huge games. First night game at the Big House vs. a big rival. First Sweet Sixteen appearance in almost 20 years. I suppose it depends on how deep we go in the tourney. I'm a bigger football fan, but I still can't decide. Especially since it was a win or go home match. I'm not even sure which was more improbable. Down 10 with 2 minutes to go? Down 3 with 30 seconds to go? Hail mary vs. well... hail mary.
Also, the Kansas game was big enough it needs a title. UTL will always be UTL. What will the Kansas game be forever referenced as?
Super Sweet Sixteen? The Jerryworld Redemption? Simply, The Karma Game? What do we call this game going forward? I want consensus on this thread...
