I'm seen him with the headset. Both at UConn and on TV. I started commenting on it to my husband each time I saw it, but Hoke wears the headset enough that my husband has requested that I stop. Mostly on 4th downs plays or 3rd and longs. Near the end of the quarter/half. Very rarely with the defense on the field obviously, but he's usually standing right next to Mattison then.

How did they get 1st and 6 after that penalty?

I loved Cusco, great city. They speak Spanish there, so you don't actually need to speak Quechua. Check out Huayna Picchu if you have time. Beautiful view and great climb.

Yeah, I noticed that outside. It was weird. After the game, it seemed like everyone was wearing Michigan clothing too, and this was still inside the stadium. It's like UConn fans were cheering for UConn during the game, but wearing Michigan clothing for before and after.

If anyone sat on the sections between the scoreboard and pressbox you might be in one of these pictures. Click on the image for the original size.
I think the 90% is a bit exaggerated. 60/40 at most for Michigan fans.
I was worried that I'd get in trouble taking pictures. Plus, I just wanted to soak it all in. So sorry if they're not great. Also, the ghosting is because the bandchanged positions between my two shots.

Backcountry camping in the Adirondacks (upstate NY). A lot of bear sightings this summer. A girl got in a fight with a bear a few days ago and was lucky enough to get out alive.

As a wife of one month, I'm confused about these "wife day" threads. Am I supposed to be making my husband do stuff because Michigan's not playing? We're just going backpacking for the weekend. But I guess I'll make him carry the bear canister in honor of wife day or whatever. That thing is heavy.

There's an anti-twerking policy? That's pretty funny. Were students just randomly twerking in the middle of lecture or lab to even have that policy exist?
|12 weeks 2 days ago||To be fair, most fans are||
To be fair, most fans are ignorant dumbasses. Ie. half the presser questions and a lot of comments on this site.. What coach is going to agree with the fans and basically say, "Sorry that our sucking is making you panic. We'll make changes and be better after the bye." It was a diplomatic answer. And we are entitled to our own opinions.

Why don't you give an example of what exactly you deem to be extremely disrespectful? Aside from not giving away schemes or throwing players under the bus what exactly is the cause of your butthurt?
|12 weeks 2 days ago||Well, I think the problem is||
Well, I think the problem is they have asked the questions your way as well or some way like it. The answer to the first one is "yadda yadda Toussaint production yadda yadda" and the second one he'd give some general platitudes to a few players. A smart guy can make any answer generic coach speak.

Definitely seemed to be a 40-60 split. A lot of the blue in the crowd was for Michigan as well. A lot of people saying "Go Blue" to each other walking around the stadium. Aside from one UConn fan telling my husband "Michigan sucks", their fans seemed alright. The people working the concession stands were really nice and seemed genuinely excited for what was going on. Then again, my section was mainly a Michigan section so we didn't really have any big UConn fans with us during the game. We ended up tailgating in some weird small parking lot across the street from the INSANELY HUGE Michigan tailgate across from the stadium. It was pretty chill. After the game it was a bit hairy and we had to rush out of there, but that was more a domestic issue going on there.
I was in a pretty big Michigan section (241) and couldn't get people to start Hail to the Victors after the first TD. I realized then that the crowd would be super quiet since that was early in the game and the shock hadn't really occurred yet.
My husband and I did manage to get a few families around us to join in the chanting for "Go Blue" and "defense" and making noise for kickoff and when UConn was in 3rd down situations. Those people seemed to get more and more into the game because of that. But for the most part, Michigan fans were looking at us like we were crazy.
It was nice to see the Michigan crowds closer to the field behind the endzone really trying to start things up though. If anyone in those sections are upset that no one was joining in with your cheering, I just want to let you know that we saw you in the back and tried to start it in our section as well.
The Michigan crowds definitely got a lot louder during the 4th quarter though. There was a palpable shift in the atmosphere of the crowd.
It was an ugly embarrassing win, but it was one of the best live football experiences I've had in awhile. So a special thanks to those people that sat around the crazy Asian girl and her husband in just cheering for Michigan. It was my husbands first live Michigan football game and you guys helped make it special.

One thing I found to be weird was that the band would be playing and then they'd pipe in RAWK music over it. Stadium was small enough to hear the band all the way across the field, and it was just weird.

So the "no longer than 90mm" rule for camera lenses means that I can bring a DSLR that can get up to 89mm with no worries of someone going "sorry not allowed"?

UConn website has a seating chart. The side with the press box is the side that should have Michigan's bench. Between gates A and B. Unless the benches are on the same side.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||If we were to get a hotel on||
If we were to get a hotel on Main Street about a mile (~30 min walk) from the stadium, how safe is it to walk to it after the game?
|13 weeks 3 days ago||Is the Aircraft club also||
Is the Aircraft club also only open 4 hours prior to gametime? Or can we get there sooner?
|13 weeks 4 days ago||Just double checking||
Just double checking logistics. There's a lot on their website about parking passes, but they also have a section for gameday parking without passes. I assume most of you lot will be parking or tailgating in this area here?
They specifically said no cameras with lenses >90mm. So ANY DSLR (ie 5dmkii) as long as the lens is <90mm is acceptable? I tried calling to ask but spent forever in their maze of automated telephone assistance.

I though the Ball State game was more Carr trying to not steamroll Hoke.

Good to know. My husband and I were originally planning to drive over with some breakfast and go to the game. Now we have ton of time with nowhere to go. Glad to hear of Michigan tailgates.

Second on the firstrow sports. Never let me down yet. It's what I'll be using for the Ohio game when I'm on my honeymoon in New Zealand. Husband is obviously not pleased at being up at 4AM for that.

Thanks. With the amount of time I spend there, you'd think I'd have thought of it.
