Just got back from the game (stayed over night in PA), and had a few random observations to share about the experience:
1-from the direction we came in, the stadium looked huge and dominated the landscape.
2-as it got dark out before the game ... the stadium structure, style, and lighting, looked very similar to a cruise ship docked at port.
3-tailgating was abundant and there were many more visibly drunk people than I expected.
4-apparently there is a uniform for all the girls ... you need to be skinny, have long brown/black hair to your mid-back, wear tight black or gray leggings (or jeans), and Uggs boots. It was quite odd really ... there seemed like there were 1,000s of girls that looked identical in this way. Maybe this is the way college girls dress when it is colder out, but I did not notice the same trend at any other game this year.
5-the lighted concession stands outside the stadium were the same as at a carnival or fair ... which added to that type of atmosphere.
6-inside the stadium, the concourses where riddled with girders that created a maze of obstacles that you can to duck under and weave in and out of. We saw two people hit their heads ... it was not attractive and was annoying.
7-the bathrooms were bad ... the worst I have been to in a while ... and the lines were silly long.
8-at our seats, the stadium looked pretty big ... but not collegiate. The student section was impressive with their white wear and pom poms.
9-the crowd did get into it at times, but seemed a bit subdued.
10-took a good hour to get out of the parking lot after game was over.
All in all, the Michigan stadium and experience is sooo much nicer, classier, and I am not at all jealous of PSU ... except maybe for their student section involvement.
