On Sept 5th will the tradition continue from last year with the victor's march into the locker room and will it start from the same spot? Didn't want to miss it if so.
My guess is yes. Why would RR change it?
I guess you haven't heard. Rich Rodriguez is the Destroyer of Traditions. A real Michigan Man would call it the Walk Of Bo.
Bump Elliott and Bo Schembechler did something similar. The tradition ended in the early 70’s before RR brought it back last year.
The Victors march is actually what the band plays as the football team does their Victors Walk into the stadium before the game.
After a Victorious football game the Victors Waltz is played; but not before "Down In Front!" is bellowed during a crucial moment in said game by a Victors Club member.
I don't see why it would not continue.
but thats just me
Thanks for the reminder. Sept. 5 is the first game I have ever attended. I am lucky enough to have a spouse that is also excited to be going and I am thinking that is something she would be interested in also. When does it take place and where does is start.
2 hours before the game and it is behind the stadium. around the other side Crisler
Here is where I believe Rich Rodriguez is golden. He institutes two things that make the team more accessible to fans, more fan-friendly, and a hell of a lot more fun. To me, it is a different approach than before, which seemed to separate players from fans.
It's why I'm ALL IN for new TRADISH-IGAN (HAHAHAHAHAHLOLZ). Just because something is old doesn't make it great, and just because something is new definitely doesn't make it bad or mean that it can't become a tradition.
I do the Victors March in my neighborhood on Game Day. It's kind of a thing I adapted. Before each televised game, I strip down to a speedo, paint my face all in maize and blue, and march up to a convenience store to beg for money to buy beer. When I get enough, I buy beer and then march home to watch the game.
After the game, when the players gather with fans to sing "The Victors," I go over to my neighbor Ralph's house, ring his doorbell, and sing "The Victors" on his front porch. Then I tinkle on his petunia garden and go back home, knock on the door, the kids don't let me in, and I pass out on my front porch.
This is a video I took of the Victors walk at the Illinois game last year. I apologize for the terrible camera work.
