I've always enjoyed going to watch Michigan play at other venues and have had some good and bad experiences.
I think my favorite road game was Purdue in 2004. Both teams were highly ranked and we won with an epic hit by Shazor. I was sitting in the Michigan section and we had no idea what had happened on that play, all we could see was the Michigan sideline going crazy. There was a really drunk UM fan sitting behind us who was pretty out of it by the end of the game, he asked me as we were celebrating the win, "whats happening, is it half time yet?", "we won, you're drunk, whoooooooooooooooooo".
I also went to ND in 2004, which was a little less memorable and just plain frustrating to watch, they do have a beautiful campus though. The goal line stand was awesome, but besides nothing but field goals and an uneasy feeling. The fans were pretty nice and hospitable, most saying "good game" as we were leaving the stadium.
MSU 2009 was pretty fun and I got the real experience of being in a hostile environment tailgating in the student neighborhoods before the game. None of the msu students had anything to say really though, since they were 1-3 and we were 4-0 at the time. I did get asked one question by almost every msu student though, "Do you go to UM?" to which I reply, "No", there faces light up with excitement, then I say, "I graduated from UM a couple years ago", faces go blank and they have nothing else to say, no trash talk, nothing. Fact is, they are literally obsessed with Walverines, as they call them. It really is amazing, MSU is the only fan base who all went to MSU for school, incredible. The game was fun and the end was awesome, I was so confident we were going to win after Tate led that epic comeback and we had all the momentum going into OT. Anyways, we lose, and suddenly MSU fans and students have balls after the game.
These were my experiences, I also went to NW in 2003 and that was fun (more UM fans than NW fans, us smoking them easily, but nothing that really stuck out).
Share your Michigan road game experinces, its going to be a long off season.
