We attempted to mic the band this fall but discovered that it was against Big Ten/NCAA rules. There simply is no way we can compete with the volume of piped in music. I guarantee that we are playing as loud as we possibly can.
Write to Athletics, specifically Mark Riordan, Marty Bodnar, and the AD.

In the past few years as you are aware, we have gone thru a painful yet necessary adjustment in the Men’s football program relative to 21st Century realities. Over the same time frame I (and a multitude of others) have witnessed the Michigan Marching Band fall into irrelevance at football games. And as an alum and a season ticket holder in section 10, rows 68 & 69, that breaks my heart.
I don’t know what the answer is. Mic the band. Change the mix. Don’t know. Just know that I detest the piped in music and hate to see my beloved Michigan Marching Band fall into irrelevance. We need you now more than ever!

|5 years 6 weeks ago||The whole Mitch Album thing||
The whole Mitch Album thing really was the tipping point for me. I mean even little green men from Mars know Rosenberg has had a hard on for Rich Rod since day one. For those that listened to the WJR spot will remember that Mitch said he was doing the show from LA that day and had just arrived a couple hours earlier from Detroit. That is absolutely true because my partner (fellow M alum) sat next to him the entire flight (first class of course!)
What Mitch didn't bother to tell his listeners is what he told my partner over the course of 4+ hours on the plane to LA. When asked, Mitch said he thought the piece was a hatchet job and likened it to writing a piece about speeding but interviewing only one driver. Then he goes on the air and proceeds to laud the Free Press and Rosenberg (big surprise)rip Brian(after he hangs up on him of course), minimize the whole thing down to a bunch of disgruntled fans and the Googlers. Bloggers are not real journalists don't you know.
The whole thing was just so self serving. Outside of our little sphere here, Rosenberg gets lauded and rewarded as a real journalist, other news outlets for whatever reason accept it on its face (insert conspiracy theory here) and the momentum grows.
Just a sad commentary on our drive-thru society of Sheeple. It's all good. We know the truth and on Saturday the truth shall set us free.
