Grandfather has worked for UofM for 65 years although now all he does is head usher in Section 1. I was born on campus so it has been thick in the blood as long as I can remember. We watched games religiously. Now that I am in Texas, getting to games is tougher but I sit down with my wife (from West Texas) and my two boys each week with our maize and blue on as well as maize and blue M&M's, sunflower seeds and cookies.
My dad and I can discuss games countless years back and he can recite every QB, RB and WR to come through the tunnel. My grandfather calls me 4 times a week to tell me who he ran into at the fieldhouse and what the latest is on the team.
It's in the blood and it's THICK even though I turned down a music scholarship to go to college in Texas.
