More of a former student than an alum, but he does have a Block M tattoo.

The technology is still pretty far off from being truly road-ready. So far, the cars rely on cameras that look for things like traffic lights, stop signs, etc. that are in specific, pre-mapped locations. They can't determine if someone threw up a stop sign for construction, and they can't detect something like a crossing guard trying to move a herd of schoolkids across the street. Those are some pretty big problems.
Oh, and the self-driving cars don't work in the rain or snow. Not much of a problem driving SF-Vegas, but a pretty big issue for everywhere else. My bet is that we see a lot of technology applied for accident avoidance, but a truly self-driving vehicle is probably still a long way off.

Don't mess with circuit breakers. Unplug it. Moves the line by 7.

I was about nine years old in '97. I was in Ann Arbor from 2006-2011 and it was pretty much all downhill after the #1-#2 2006 OSU game. Being realistic, I hope to see ONE national championship. I'm not asking for much.
That and a Tigers World Series win. (I'm realistic, so I won't even touch the Lions Super Bowl wishes.)

2009 Iowa night game, senior year. My housemate and lifelong best friend disappears at about 5pm. Get a call the next morning from "Inmate Calling Solutions" that my buddy is ready to be picked up from the Iowa City jail / drunk tank. He blew a 0.333 when being booked for public intox and the ticket the cop wrote was hilarious - "Defendent was observed throwing beers in the stadium. Had slurred speech, admitted to drinking, and had urinated himself." To be fair, my roommate said he had only spilled beer on himself.

Going to be taking this trip every two years. We lucked out with our division - Chicago, Iowa City, Minneapolis, and Lincoln every other year. Too bad we can't trade East Lansing for Madison.

Pumped to experience game day in Lincoln. Have heard nothing but good things.
