I attended this game. We had a nice tailgate before the game, so my memories are somewhat clouded by beer. Here are my random (some might say scattershot) recollections of that afternoon:
- Williams Brice Stadium kind of looks like a space ship from a distance.
- It was a very warm afternoon. So warm that a couple of Gamecock band members passed out on the field before the game, standing and waiting to do their "2001 Space Odyssey" music for the teams entrance.
- The stadium was very loud and the fans were very friendly. Of course, this was pre SEC days for SC.
- The SC fans I talked to considered this a very big game for them.
- Harbaugh and Morris were very good, as was Thomas Wilcher.
- Paul Jokisch was very tall.
- The fans remained friendly, even when Michigan was up 20 plus points in the second half.
- Michigan basically manhandled the Gamecocks. O and D lines were dominant.

Didn't the Virginia legislature essentially make Virginia and Virginia Tech a package deal a few years ago when VT joined the ACC?

Michigan 67, Illinois 65. Wait, that seems vaguely familiar.

The MGoBlog HOF needs a wing for special contributors. Like baseball has writers in their HOF. Nominees could include Bob Ufer, Carl Grapentine (the football PA guy), Jim Brandstatter for his radio career and Lloyd Brady. Definitely Lloyd Brady.

I grew up in Ann Arbor and I listened to Pete Franklin after sunset. He was a sports talk radio host ahead of his time. He was very nasty to callers, but it was fun to listen to. Didn't his show end with a Jimmy Durante song?
Ed: This was a response to Gordie Bell. Doh!

I believe the bald official you referenced may be Jim Bain, truly the worst baksetball official I've ever seen. In the mid to late 70's I thought more than once that Johnny Orr would punch him.

No problem. You had me questioning my memory, but Wikipedia confirmed it.

I grew up in a neighborhood off of Pauline Blvd. in Ann Arbor. I could go outside during games and hear the crowd roar. My first game was in 1963, when I was 6. I walked with a neighbor and his son to the stadium after halftime (in those non sellout days they opened the gates after halftime). I saw Navy (with Roger Staubach at QB) beat Michigan. I remember both the Michigan winged helmets and the shiny gold Navy helmets. The stadium seemed huge! Somehow I liked the winged helmets better.

After the Toussant TD ruled non TD (which was crap) and the next TD negated by 25 yards in penalties I was convinced that Akron State would win. I sat in shock during the 3rd down play and peered (still seated) through the forest of standing people to watch the field goal attempt on the scoreboard. To go from a 10 point lead with two minutes to play to (in my mind) a missed FG and Akron State trailing by three with the ball and two minutes left was almost too much to take.

How was RR's relationship with other head coaches? Did they respect him? How did RR feel about the coaches of Michigan's rivals - Charlie Weis, Mark Dantonio and Jim Tressel?

They are called Barnoculars. Last year I saw one of the security guys at the gate looking through binoculars to make sure they were real.

My friends and I went extra early to watch Tony Franklin (Texas A&M's kicker) warm up. He was kicking 60 yard field goals with consistency and ease. Of course that was the era of tall tees and special balls for kicking, but still it was amazing.

The seats on the west side of the aisle in section 34 are being reserved for students. Included with my season ticket package is a sheet listing several other options. I'm supposed to list my preferences 1 through 5.
Here is the response to my email inquiry to the ticket office last weekend -"The side of section 34 closest to section 33 is where we must empty seats. It's
I liked my seats. Row 37 is a really good height to watch the game from and I was two seats from the aisle (the center of the goalpost). I really like the endzone view, seeing the holes open on the line and the defensive lineman's jerseys strech out when being held. Goal line plays in the north endzone were awesome. Sniff sniff. I'm becoming verklempt.. Talk amongst yourselves.

1984 World Series, game 5 - The Tigers beat San Diego and win the world championship. I was in the lower bleachers at Tiger Stadium. The MMB played before the game. Gibson's 8th inning home run iced the game.
1973 M-OSU 10-10 tie - I swear Lantry's 60+ yard FG attempt in the 4th quarter just missed.
1985 M-OSU - Harbaugh to Kolesar bomb iced the game.
2004 M-MSU - Braylonfest
1995 M-OSU - Biakabatukafest
2010 M at Notre Dame - There was hope (for a short time)
2007 M at MSU - Dantonio looked so smug with a 10 point lead in the 4th quarter
2011 M at MSU basketball - My MSU friends all received a scoreboard picture from me
1985 M at South Carolina football - South Carolina was ranked in the top ten. Michigan won 34-3.
1999 Florida State at Miami - FSU lost on a wide left FG.

Miami (the Florida one) does mike their band the entire game. I've seen them play in the Orange Bowl and Joe Robbie//Pro Player/Landshark Stadium and they were miked in both. Of course they have a really small band.

I was 6 and went after halftime with a neighbor and his dad (they opened the gates at halftime back then). I remember Michigan's helmets and Navy's gold helmets. I believe Navy won the game with Roger Staubach as QB.
