|9 weeks 2 days ago||Shadows||
One person is assigned as a Shadow for each Rank of 12. They follow the Rank during the week to learn the gist of where to go and when. Then if someone doesn't show up on time or gets hurt etc. the shadow is inserted. Happened to me Homecoming 2003. Talk about a terrified March to the stadium, everything turned out okay though, we won.

1 Rank is 12 marchers for non-tuba and drumline.

I've never been sure on that number. While the Pregame Block M is always the same, the number of twirlers varies year to year.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Put them where?||
I would like to see the numbers displayed somewhere public to truly honor those with the retired numbers.

Hopefully we don't still owe him all of the salary he was guaranteed as part of his resignation.

We also have the Yellow and Blue that no one seems to care about. It's also just okay.

When will someone start the 49ers Management appreciation thread?

I was there in early 2013 for an Outdoor Hockey Game. They are planning to update the old style scoreboards but those won't be in place until 2015. It's almost comical how bad they are. Also, they only sell RC Cola which is disguisting. The North & East sidelines are generally in the sun if there is any (important if it's really cold).

NW punts sometime in the second half. Punt lands at the five or so, great punt, they have three guys in excellent position across the field to down it whichever way it bounces and one of the NW guys kicks it into the end zone for a touchback.

Their coach was at Compuware arena in Plymouth I believe. Now they train in Northville or Novi or something like that.

|1 year 47 weeks ago||The check is split by the conference||
That's part of the reason to increase the size of the conference. Don't think that we could turn one down if we wanted to. They don't want to so don't worry. You'll have the opportunity to see Al Borges one more time around the holidays.
|1 year 47 weeks ago||Uhhhhh Yeah||
9-3 With wins over ND and ohio? Anyone who says differently is letting disappointment from last night take over.
That being said, it's never gonna happen. I shudder to think how much red is going to be in The Big House on that Saturday, MNCG on the line or not.

Don't we all hate generic NFL stadiums around these parts? I wasn't able to make it but I would much prefer to play an away game compared to neutral site.

NW score from two years ago.

They give Sunday morning off for religious observance. By that point, sleeping always felt spiritual.
Senior year, it rained so so much...

Remember the craigslist scam to get seat fillers in year one? Ticket sales for this game are a joke.

That's pretty much what Martin did for his years at M; piss off the fans (no Crisler renovations, renovating the Big House, RRod).

You missed them because that aren't going to make it that far.

OH! Good Ole Hockey Game....

All I've got in Illinois is BC beating up on Vermont.

When they sell tickets to an event like this (requiring points, away venue), you often have to show an ID to pickup the tickets in the city of the event. Keep this in mind if you're going to buy them from someone, it may not work out.
|3 years 36 weeks ago||Where was he?||
Cundiff comes running in with about 7 seconds left on the play clock. Where was he? It's not like he didn't know they were going to kick. Was he anticipating the 'icing of the kicker' play? Definitely the bigger goat.
