Is it only me, or does the whole "Big House" nickname for Michigan Stadium kind of annoy anyone else? I have no rational reason for it, other than I never heard that for the first 15-20 years of my life (I'm 30) and it seems kind of forced or something to me. I suppose I should like the name recognition and publicity it gives UM, but I still feel like kind of a poseur everytime I say it. Maybe it's just me.
