"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
per Angelique Chengelis tweet (I assume, perhaps wrongly, that this is a general policy decision rather than a decision unique to this week's game).
Too bad, it seems like most people liked it. I don't know if this will fuel Brian's fear that we've "returned to the days when the fans were tolerated at best." But I assume that the decision is based on what's best for the team's pre-game preparation.
Sorry if this has been addressed somewhere else, but I am heading up to the game this weekend and was wondering what time and what part of the stadium the victors walk happens. I'd like to make it over there so if someone could help me out, that'd be sweet.
Does anyone know anything about the new Victory Walk, like where it takes place and at what time? My kids and I are coming up for the Penn State game, and would love to cheer on our team. It looks as if Coach Rod now has the team in more formal attire and without music. A sight to behold, I'm sure!
EDIT: Victors Walk, not victory walk! I was so excited about our win yesterday, I got ahead of myself!
I just wanted to ask all who are attending the walk tommorow, to give Coach Rod and this team a BIG Thank You for me and all other Big Blue fans that live out of state and cannot attend.
Let him know that we all are thankful he is our leader and these kids are his army. Let them know that we have their backs by this show of gratitude.
That is all, I hope I didn't waste anyones time an this thread. I just wish I could be there to Thank them all myself.
GO BLUE !!! ALL IN !!! BEAT WESTERN !!!
Hail to the Victors Valiant, Hail to the conquering heroes, Hail , Hail to Michigan , THE LEADERS AND BEST !!!!!!!!
Question for the MMB'ers.
What time is the Victors Walk this week? I remember hearing it is usually 2 hours before, so does that make it 1:30 or does the late start change the schedule at all?
What time is the full MMB rehearsal on Saturday, is the schedule altered for late start?
