I don't care what kind of "gifts" the OP has, you couldn't pay me to go. He better watch out, if he gets too wasted, they may eat him alive.

Do you think Harbaugh would let him do this on the field? I'm sure that Bo wouldn't have.

In old Tiger Stadium, the upper deck tickets were better for watching football and when the Lions moved to the Silverdome, many season ticket holders bought in the upper deck thinking it would be the same there. My father knew the ticket manager for the Lions pretty well and he told him that the lower deck was raised above the field. My dad got seats on the 25 yard line about 20 rows up. They were fantastic seats for watching football. I was always stunned by how close to the action I was whenever I went to a game. I have a lot of good memories of watching Barry Sanders and Herman Moore with my Dad.

It has since been torn down, but the old Gator Bowl in Jacksonville was a dump. I went to the 1979 game where Lawrence Taylor took out John Wangler's knee and UNC won 17-15.

My first year at U of M was 1972. It's a miracle that I survived, let alone graduated. The number of green glass wine bottles in the student section at football games was staggering. About midway through the second half, someone would shout "Pass them up" and waves of empty bottles would end up inundating the students in the top few rows of the stadium.
Mr. Flood's Party was my favorite bar. After I graduated, Michigan raised the legal drinking age back to 21.

Do I need to remain seated, or can I run around screaming profanities?

Everyone took a break for water and Jim came over to the sideline. People were getting photos with him and someone gave him a quart of chocolate milk that a lot of people got pictures of him drinking.

Except without the kids because they're out of the house (the youngest is at UC Irvine).

|21 weeks 1 day ago||I don't know. Just speculation||
There is a rule that says that any transfer from one B1G school to another has to sit out a year. There is no exemption for graduate transfers mentioned in the rule. An exception to the rule had to be granted. I guess Delaney can grant the exemption unilaterally, but I would imagine that the member schools could lobby him.
|21 weeks 2 days ago||Hell yeah!||
I really thought that the B1G would deny his transfer due to objections from other schools wanting to keep Michigan down. I'm glad I was wrong. Maybe the other schools realize that it is better for the B1G as a whole if Michigan is good.

Yeah, I remember some intense verbal sparing with some BYU fans at that game. Let's just say that they weren't all that pious. I really wanted Michigan to win that game to shut them up.

I was truly saddened when he died in 2010 because he was the same age as I was and it was like a piece of my youth passing. It was at that time that I changed my avatar to a picture of the great Rob Lytle.
|31 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah, I remember when "Pass Them Up" didn't refer to coeds||
but to wine bottles and the students in the top rows would be buried in green glass. The legal drinking age was 18 when I was in school and it's a miracle that I graduated between the drugs and alcohol consumed.

That's a fact

But good for you for remembering what an inspiration Mayes was for that team.
|32 weeks 2 days ago||Am I the only one to remember Captain Eric Mayes||
The co-captain of the 1997 National Championship team, Mayes only recorded 46 tackles in his career at Michigan. He served as a backup linebacker in 1995 and 1996 after walking on to the football program. His impact on the field in 1997 was overshadowed by the contributions of Woodson, Greise, Streets, Ray, Tuman, and a host of others. However, Mayes' impact as a leader was as large as any player in recent memory. Mayes' career at Michigan followed a Disney-esque storyline. The Kalamazoo native transferred to Michigan in 1995 after going to Xavier College, a small Louisiana school that did not have a football program. As a walk on, Mayes contributed on special teams during his first two years on the team, registering 16 total tackles in that time. After the departure of All-American and captain Jerrett Irons before 1997, Mayes took advantage of the chance to fill both Irons' starting role and his captaincy. He had the best game of his career against Notre Dame, making 14 tackles (one for a loss) and breaking up a pass.Unfortunately, his playing career ended in the very next game. On Indiana's fourth play from scrimmage, Mayes took an awkward cut after shedding a block during a routine running play, tearing a ligament in his knee. It was quickly revealed that the injury would not allow him to return that season. As a fifth-year senior who was not eligible for a medical redshirt, Mayes had played his last game as a Wolverine. Despite not being able to contribute on the field, Mayes continued to fulfill his duties as a captain. One of the most memorable images of the 1997 season occurred after Michigan beat Ohio State, clinching the Big Ten title and sending the #1 Wolverines to the Rose Bowl. During the on-field celebration, the Michigan team carried Mayes on their shoulders.
