Tailgating should be fun that day...
MSU game @ 3:30 PM - ABC/ESPN
Edit: Original poster snuck the link in on me while I was posting this. My bad.
Knew I'd be bitched at for not having a link as soon as I submitted it. My bad.
Spank Sparty on National T.V.
we will be bowl elgible around 6:30ish
When we get the ground game going early that clock will run.
Officially, but I believe we will be bowl eligible by about 4:15 or 4:30.
Not as much as the Ann Arbor police department.
Or Charlie Weis at a Sunday buffet.
It is my only game that I get to go to this year unless of course we make it to a Florida bowl.
Thank god! I'll actually have time to tailgate instead of chuggging my beer on the wy to the stadium
are not mutually exclusive
I am flying up from Tampa and this will be my first game since 2002. Looking foward to being able to get in 3 extra hours of tailgating.
Thank God this is on national TV. It was pretty lame that the UM-MSU game was on the BTN last year.
How will I know what to use to make queso??????
flying my son in from Atlanta for the weekend, driving over from Toronto, meeting my cousin & wife from Chicago whose daughter is a freshman this year. should be a great family tailgate!
Michigan has only had Umass so far, and would only have 1 BTN game in the first 6.
I thought that all teams needed 4 BTN games, but that may not be true anymore. In any case, I would assume that Illinois and Purdue are headed for the BTN.
I think it is an minimum 3 games on the BTN per team per year.
be the minimum of 3.
Look for Illinois and Purdue to be prime BTN candidates. Not sure how the pecking order goes (despite the numerous threads with often-conflicting information), but PSU and osu are definitely WWL fodder. Wisco likely is, too, especially if UM and UW keep up their winning ways. Iowa is already scheduled to be on ABC at 330pm.
of 2 myself.
Once Big Ten play ramps up, there are a few weeks with 2 ABC games, one at 3:30 and one at 8pm, plus ESPN and ESPN2 show a Big Ten game.
I agree. I remember the minimum when Big Ten Network launched was one guaranteed out of conference game, and one conference game on BTN. I guess something could have changed since then.
I know this is a bit early, but can someone please start posting daily weather updates for that game? /s
they say Sunny with a high of 59. This is from NOAA.
By past weeks trends it should be downgraded to mostly cloudy and 42 by the weekend. ;)
to work the afternoon shift on Sunday. Woot for actually getting to tailgate!
Wife's grandmother's 90th birthday party that evening. I'm sure we'll be out of the house before the end of the game, even with a 2:30 start in Chicago. I guess that's why God invented radio, Tivo, and the internet.
I'm so pumped for this game, I might jump half as high as Denard in that picture.
I kind of assumed this would be the case given the rest of the conference slate that weekend, but it does mean I don't get to watch the game as I will probably be tailgating for the USA soccer match. Oh well.
Wondering if Game Day crew will be in attendance
Highly doubtful considering the abundance of good games that weekend and the relative unknowns regarding how legitimate both Michigan and Michigan State are.
Is in serious jeaopardy for the State game. It's probably best we get past Indiana, before predicting the attendance for the State game though
I'll be flying in at 6am that morning to see the game. It'll give me some time to rest up before tailgating, cheering on the team and celebrating a Michigan win!
Rest up? You should be going straight from the airport to the golf course.
If this game was in EL, I would be terrifed about the town going up in flames by the time the game rolled around.
This could very well be the game of the day just because the rivalry tends to keep these games close. Hopefully Dantonio is back for the game, because beating MSU will be even sweater if he is there to witness it.
I'm not really sure how him hoping Dantonio is on the sidelines indicates a lack of class. Or how his misspelling of "sweeter" indicates anything other than a transposed letter.
You should be less terrified now considering Ann Arbor has officially banned couches on people's porches.
I have a wedding at 6 that night. Was praying (selfishly) for the noon game, but I guess this is why God invented smart phones....
Get your priorities straight.
with you on the noon start... i have to work at the stadium that day, but i have a bachelor party that night... a noon start would have been perfect... get home around 7, nap, go out... now its going to be get done at the stadium around 9pm and then have to go straight to where ever the party is at... this wouldn't be a big problem if i hadn't been running my ass for 12 hours... hopefully the best man keeps the party in the general area of AA...
3:30 is always the perfect kick off time; I am so pumped for this one
I'm driving down Friday from Marquette for the game, so good thing it's a late start so I can get some sleep.
When are the permanent lights going in?
If we beat Indiana, this game will be crazy. If MSU beats Wisconsin, it will be EPIC.
