Everything was perfect. From the Band, to the 9/11 Tribute, to the amazing game played, and now to the non stop coverage on tv. What a great night Nationaly for the University of Michigan!

..it took me about 30 minutes longer than it should have. All anyone wanted to talk about when they saw my shirt and hat was the game, all i was really able to pull off was an epic grin-fest
This picture sums it up:
I didnt know Dolph Lundgren's son went to Michigan?!?!?
Pretty awesome, right?
Sunshine from "Remember the Titans"... Should we call him "Dolph Sunshine"?
Here I am with my new pal. I don't remember his name but I'm sure the MGoCommunity can help me come up with one, especially since he got so much face(palm) time!
Epic! Have an awesome night Ann Arbor and the rest of the University. Wish I was there with you, but you made the weekend and next week that much easier for me. Go Blue!
This guy needs to be our new fan hero. Sorry, Mr. Christmas.
anyone who clutches an american flag is OK with me
can someone sum up the post-game? I was not in attendance but it got some serious play/recognition on ESPN and made us look great because stadium was packed during whatever festivities occurred...
In the student section, we couldn't leave because we were in shock. I was literally standing with my hands on my head for about 15 minutes. Then I walked home in shock. Amazing atmosphere.
Like I've never seen before. Entire crowd stuck around for fifteen minutes going apeshit, singing whatever song was on pumped the living he'll out those pom poms. The started don't stop believin, cut it and the crowd sang it for a verse or so. I honestly cannot describe the atmosphere in there tonight, I've never seen anything like that.
Most of the Stadium was still full long after the game. I'm sure Brian will mention it and capture it better, but weall just wanted to be there and keep being there. All the good wasn't gone yet.
(To get a bit purple,) Kind of like the fog that started coming in after halftime that by the end was almost a haze.
Most of the students stayed for a postgame show that lasted until a quarter past midnight or later. This included a victory lap/on field interview for Denard.
By then lt sounded like even the announcer was caught up in it a little more than usual.
Out of the stadium too was pretty wild, by far the rowdiest I've ever seen a crowd leaving the stadium, I could hear people cheering and chanting from blocks away all the way home.
gallon, god, good!!!!
Don't forget the tribute to Desmond! I love how the way they chose to honor him. And what I love even more is that the first night he wore the "retired" 21 Hemingway averaged 55 yards a catch on 3 catches!
I love this idea. Keep the number in circulation but make sure everyone knows its history. Really original. I'd bet other schools will copy us.
would be great to get a full breakdown/highlights of the UTL pre-game, halftime and post-game. legendary night. i want to know what it was like to be there.
I walked all over halifax in AA. The houses were partying awesome but clean. The town was sparkling and there was maize everywhere. The clouds moved out and the weather was perfection. It was a great night for Ann Arbor, as well. Hell, for the whole state of Michigan.
By half time I was regreting flying in from Vegas but by the end of the game I was hugging, screaming and high fiving people around me. I sat at the corner of the end zone where the last TD was made. When the game was over it seemed like no one was leaving ( except the ND fans) for a good 20 minutes cheering and singing. Great night and positive national exposure!
One word: loud
The grey-hairs must have been pulling them out, because eminem, zombie nation, dynamite, hundred nation army, and yes pop evil...blasted LOUD, like, testing the limits of the speakers loud. Then when the music died down, the CROWD was loud...stood like the whole game...then after the game they blasted more music...and no one wanted to leave. It was new and it was diferrent but darned if it didn't help Michigan win. The Desmond tribute was fantastic...21 will wear a hall of fame patch forever...21's locker will be pimped out to honor Desmond forever...Desmond's speach was awesome, talked about how the university...from cottage inn to the cube to south quad and the diag made him the man he is today. He teared up. So did I.
Given that it was 11:30 and by the end we were all exhausted, I was amazed how uniformly and willingly people stood up, olds and all.
Everything was perfect except those mother effing ads for the facebook pages. I think Dave Brandon masturbates to that crap.
This will go down as not only the best game in MIchigan football history, but possibly college football history.
That's false, and a completely ridiculous thing to say.
But hell for a weekend I'll take it haha
FINISH, not game.
Best of the decade? Possibly. Best of history? If we were #1 and #2, then definitely. But we're not so...
There was an extremely high quantity of hotties in night jerseys out today. It made AA look great.
Except for the one in a 2007 season schedule shirt. Seriously... I don't care how hot you are, when you remind me of The Horror, I'm going to run the other way.
Who is the blonde guy in the "Big House Football" shirt with the 80's hair and the goatee in the back of the Hoke interview? That's a lot of hair!
Michigan great and former NFL vet Steve Everitt. Guy marches to his own drummer, in a totally awesome way.
Thanks for the info. I learned something new about Michigan today.
Desmond had a touching speech before the game I thought. Youre right everything was perfect.
It didn't happen. Things really ran smoothly. The day was freakishly perfect. Incoming traffic was so widely dispersed, nobody had much of a problem. Exiting traffic was so deleriously happy, nobody cared. And in fact, this was not as bad as MSU last year.
I was wrong. This unbelievable game has guaranteed another night game.
Brandon was really happy. I saw Bill Martin and he was too. Oh, and, uh Shane Morris was reeeeeaalllyy happy.
9/11 tribute to the alums was perfect.
Teared up on that one.
The entire stadium singing God Bless America was one of the most moving things I have ever been apart of.
I don't know if I've ever missed Ann Arbor more than I did today
I will admit, I got choked up with joy, watching one of the most exciting games in Michigan history, and seeing the atmosphere first hand after the game is something I will take to the grave with me.
Definitely one of the best games I have attended and by far THE BEST crowd atmosphere I have ever witnessed!
If any of the recruits at the game were "on the fence," I think we now know where they stand!
So fortunate to have attended!
Don't forget the halftime show with the two guys parachuting into the stadium (at night!). That was awesome.
