I am not sold on the Maize-Out, whether a formally declared one, or a de-facto one like last Saturday.
It is neither impressive nor intimidating. It merely has the effect of a bunch of people at a Sunday summer lawn concert in a peaceful field of dandelions. If Hayden Fry were still coaching, he would decorate the visitor's locker room with pictures of our Maize-Outs.
This is what a Michigan Big House crowd should look like:
A loud, angry, intimidating crowd, dressed in dark blue. So what if it does not look cute on TV.
Perhaps just the student section should wear Maize for contrast, but the rest of the crowd should go back to dark blue.
