Very nice. Gonna be loud with that little roof crowning the stadium.

On a whim, I decided to buy some tix off of StubHub at roughly 11:00 AM and proceeded to drive like a bat out of hell from the Royal Oak area in an attempt to make kickoff. Made pretty good time -- was parked in the Hill Street parking structure by 11:55. I have to say that I'm surprised to hear it looked so good in the stadium. There were a ton of students still partying at the houses around State and Hill as I walked by en route to the stadium and they didn't look like they were in any hurry to leave.

In neither of those games did we have two RBs go for 100+ yards.

Wisconsin's staff really did their team a disservice not having their team prepared for that fake punt. LSU was dead in the water until that play.

Attendance figures have little bearing on the bitching. See this thread. Yost holds 6,000. Win and people will be happy.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Just win, baby||
People wouldn't be as pissed if the hockey and football team were winning. I don't hear too many complaints with regard to basketball, and the ones you do hear pale in comparison to the non-stop bitching about everything and anything football. If we were winning nobody would give a care about Dave Brandon.

No. They don't work. Stick to maize.

I've been a season ticket holder for three of the four major teams in Detroit and have never heard anybody chant anything about Chicago at a game in which a Chicago team was not present.

Seems like it would come off very easily during the course of hitting. My guess is they've come to this realization over the last few practices.

I don't whether we can say he did or didn't based on the video. The camera was on the other side of the track, so the sound of an engine gunning could have come from any vehicle on the track.

How could you definitively know that was his engine? The film was shot from across the track. It could have been any car on the track.

...but these schools? No."
Among the top ten winningest programs in college football, virtually all have rolled out an alternative uniform in some form or another over the past 5-10 years including two of our biggest rivals, OSU and ND. Texas has experimented with alternates in their spring game. Even Alabama has subtly tweaked their uniform over the past few years with houndstooth piping and numerals.
I don't necessarily disagree with you or your uncle, but it is what it is. Alternate uniforms are hot right now and the schools you mentioned are not immune to the trend. Kids from traditional powers love things that are new or different just as much as kids from less traditional schools.
Let's face it. Between the alternate uniforms, the advent of the college football playoff, and the talk of paying players, we need to realize that the game many of us grew up loving is gone forever.
As for Michigan's latest alternate uniforms, I think It's kind of funny how nobody bats an eye when the hockey team wears all blue -- it's a great look -- but add blue pants to the football uniform and everyone pitches a fit. For what it's worth, I do think these new Michigan uniforms look sweet, and this is coming from a guy celebrating his 45th birthday today. I think the all blue looks more intimidating.

While they may not be "blue bloods" per se they are currently the 11th winningest school in FBS.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||Exactly.||
