MILITARY APPRECIATION: There won’t be jetpacks at the Big House, but that’s about all that will be missing from Michigan’s Military Appreciation plans on Saturday. Athletic Department officials are urging fans to arrive to the game early to participate in a card stunt project. During the national anthem, fans will hold up 65,000 cards that will combine to form an American flag. The cards will be affixed to seats in sections 1-23, circling around the south endzone from east of the 50-yard line to west of the 50-yard-line. “We’re keeping (the cards) away from the students, so they don’t turn into boomerangs,” a military representative joked on Monday. The national anthem will also feature a flyover from four F-16 fighter jets out of Pope Air Force Base in South Carolina. The jets will be launching from Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Mount Clemons, Mich. and flying south to north over the stadium — and the card stunt. The head pilot for the flyover is a Michigan graduate. Plans are to have a live video feed from the lead jet play on the stadium’s videoboards to show the card stunt from overhead. Pregame hospitality for veterans will also be held at Oosterbaan Fieldhouse. “Let me tell you, it’s awesome,” Hoke said. “We all are thankful for those who have served this country and those who are serving. “Coming from San Diego and having the relations we were able to have with the Marine corps and the Navy, it’s humbling what they do for our country and what they do for us to be able to sit here to today and get asked questions, some good and some not so good.”
So show up early!
