I attended the version of this that was held in 2009 and it was very well done. The coaches are extremely open during the pre-program mingling period for conversation and photos. RichRod was the biggest draw so it was very easy to sidle up to Red and Beilein and converse. I imagine the same dynamic will play out with Brady Hoke.
There's ample opportunity to bid on and win signed shirts, equipment and the like with proceeds going to the U-M Club of Washington's Scholarship Fund. Bring your checkbook and credit cards.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend as I'll be in A2 that day and the following week.
