What is this "free" you speak of?
there would have to be some to wash away
What is this "free" you speak of?
It would be cool if basketball had a home game against a rival at Yost and they wore like old 1950s throwbacks for it. Like a heritage classic game.
The tightness of the seats for a bball game inside Yost would make the atmosphere electric
Please not soccer, unless it's Brazil vs Italy, Spain, etc,. I would also like to see the Lions play a home game there.
"Please not soccer"? You don't have to go, you know. And it's not like something is being bumped for this.
Oh my gosh, a Lions game at the Big House would be awesome!!
done that in 1971. I wonder if Don Canham was excoriated for trying to make a buck by renting out Michigan Stadium. After all it was his idea to bring the Detroit Lions and defending champions, the Balitmore Colts, in for a pre-season exhibition game.
Dave Brandon's jersey number a legends jersey and Michigan's best player every year will wear the number and have Dave Brandon listed as the name on the jersey.
My own personal hope is that Brandon will announce that we are going to see the stadium filled with water and, for a nominal fee, we can see recreations of historic sea battles inside the Big House. Imagine what a novelty it would be to have Slippery Rock return AND a reenactment of, say, the Battle Of Trafalgar inside of the same month potentially.
Kickin' it old school. And that would certainly be historic, but not enough of a WOW! moment for Brandon. I'm thinking it's bigger, but also more plebian, to attract more revenue: a NASCAR track (a throwback to the chariot races in the Colosseum); a WWE Raw extravaganza (bringing to mind the gladiator fights); or monster trucks (which have no equal in all of history).
Live Human Sacrifice.
I've seen Reality TV. The public is ready for this.
I used to work at a managment company. The partners told me about this meeting with a horrible person of a producer, there was some off handed joke they made about what if there was a show that followed depressed people that were going to off themselves. Horrible producer got really excited and started spitballing what the actual show would be. They had to tell him they were joking and did not want to create a show where people took their own lives.
Assuming you mean the Colosseum in Rome then I'm pretty sure there were no chariot races there. The venue would have been much too small. I think the circus maximus would have been used for chariot races, but don't quote me on that.
With the facts.
If they did the sea battle on Slippery Rock game morning, the field would certainly be slippery.
But I'm thinking gladiators. Great way for the Athletic Department to purge the guys who might, say, advocate a union.
I was thinking in terms of Rome v Carthage reenactments in the Coliseum using minature triremes.
Wouldn't have to pump water in, would just have to stop pumping water out.
1st statue of a person on campus?
it's a bronze statue of a young Dave Brandon looking up and admiring a bronze current Dave Brandon.
Will break ground at the old Edwards Bros printing site (down State Street)
He's returning all of our PSD's.
I just saw that Wrestlemaina is this week. Maybe the big house will host for a record like the Silverdome did.
in the playbook of Ohio! I had to.
It's European soccer. We had this discussion on here awhile ago. Someone got it off some soccer site.
at our stadium, on Michigan away dates. Who knew?
The halftime show of The Horror II is going to be a Pop Evil concert.
I just know it.
Lol lol lol. Oh god help us

We're going to field a title contending football team this fall?
He will be establishing National Dave Brandon Day. And there will be much rejoicing
ND wins at UM Stadium?
That train left, Bucko.
Too bad they won't have the chance.
Are we finally getting the Wolverbear Mascot?
He has decided to replace the student section with billboards?
At least then there will be something to look at in that section.
A historic partnership with Dominoes Pizza? "Introducing "The Big House" - two extra-large pizzas,10 of your favorite toppings, an order of pasta or wings, plus choco-donos for desert! All for the infinitely reasonable price of $14.99!"
It will also be made available on football Saturdays for a mere $72.50.
Don't forget your PPL. Personal Pizza License at $200 per.
Better off just announcing it and let everyone else decide how historic it is. Does he really need an announcement that he's going to make an announcement?
What could be more DB?
And by "DB", I mean . . . um, yeah.
The world's largest Noodle?
Dave will have a sky writer do O-H-N-O over the shoe during The Game.
