Decades later there were still postcards being sold in Madison of that final scoreboard. I was at the game as a 10-year old and saw the cards in convenience stores well into my 30's. A jarring childhood memory that could not be banished...

This play exposes the problem with Brady mostly being an observer on offense.
If you are going to go for it, you also need to be confident (and directly involved) in the play call.
This probably did not happen.

Two decisions needed to be made: to go AND the playcall.
For this to truly be a confident ballsy coaching decision, Brady HAS to make both.

Do you feel the national panash?
Thank you Hoke, Mattison, and Burke.
The depth of the pride and inspiration I feel right now is illogical.
That is Michigan Football. It runs deep in my blood.
I am very fortunate.

I was also in school with the fab five and consider it a treasure. Looking down from the U towers upon a jubulant South University is right there alongside many fine sports memories from the era. Frankly, it was damn fine year-round.
Maybe it is because of the football domination then, or the team being right on the heels of the '89 title, or it's just interesting triva but regardless I often think of one primary fab five fact: they never won anything. I even recall them losing holiday tourneys. Again, I LOVED the fab five. But as a mantle to hang the program on, they do fall short in one fairly important category.
Amazing, magical, yes. Champions, no.
This history has me very buzzy anticipating tomorrow. This is the cusp of something very special. 24 hours out. Let's all give the energy; float the stroke, carry the defense. Bring the intensity from tip-off. Our home.
Tomorrow this team can establish a new conversation, turn a momentus page. I'm ready to help make it happen. Are you?

Perhaps our collective ass size is to blame?
The general consensus seems to be that students like to cram into the lower rows. Also that the problem has gotten worse the last several years.
It was several years ago that the whole stadium was re-numbered giving each seat more room, right?
So, maybe the issue here isn't the attitude or responsibility of the contemporary student but rather the substantial amount of garbage food that we as a society put down our throats.

Keep it bold, clean, and classy.
It is the best uniform in all the land.
I think even the flag cluttered things.

For ND I was on the 25 yard line, about 40 rows up.
What impressed me the most was how much louder the crowd sounded when the line of scrimmage was directly in front of me. The structures absolutely focus sound towards the action on the field. If you are in this plane, you are in a churning cauldron of emotion.
I have never been to a sporting event where I knew I was a fundamental part of the outcome. No question ND was having trouble communicating. I was so proud of how loud we were on every defensive down even when the game was not looking so good.
Remember the post-game vibes? I recall people consistently not wanting to talk about football, or whatever, but just expressing how they felt to have witnessed such a spectacle.
I don't think the RAWK can take much credit; it needs to go to acoustical design and a record crowd doing their part.
Allow me to introduce a welcome addition to the college football landscape: MICHIGAN HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE. What a beautiful thing! YES YES!! As one who grew up in the shadow of the stadium and went to school with Desmond, I shiver even now recalling how proud I was of the scene.
It was a great night to be a Michigan Wolverine.
Keep it LOUD people! We can now DO this! We can INTIMIDATE!
