thread got buried and I wanted to address a couple questions people had about the crowd/atmosphere there.
I went for the WMU game...met up with a fellow mgoblogger.
much smaller place than Duffy's. was full of michigan fans, but full meant about 40-50 people. we sat at the corner of the bar and chatted it up with a few other fans. food was great.
atmosphere was great...not crazy at all, but everyone went crazy for big plays/td's and the like. good balance of hearing the announcers or the person you're talking to and high fiving strangers on big plays. tables were available until about 30 minutes before the game, not sure if it has gotten anymore crowded since week 1.
treetopflyer - i would take your gf here for a game, then duffy's for msu/psu/or osu. Duffy's is kind of the student section to Newport's other side of the stadium.
i plan on getting up there at 10:15ish this saturday...will be at the SE corner of the bar in a tigers hat...if peeps are up for it, i can get a table as well.
