I returned for homecoming after 40 years in exile (SEC country). My impressions: first, the stadium renovations are fantastic! The place looks brand new, is clean, and has plenty of concessions and restrooms. Second, the cheers aren't as good as they used to be. Whatever happened to the cheers that students made up their own (usually profane) words to? What's up with the Looney Tunes or Flintstones or whatever that cheer was where the cheerleeders put their megaphones on their heads? That was lame! And what's up with the students? I watched the student sections through my binoculars. Everyone was so well-behaved! No young ladies were passed up to the top row. I didn't see anyone passing out. And only one small blue beach ball was bouncing around the stands. Come on people--this is MICHIGAN! Where else can you pay $18,000 a year for the privilege of looking stupid in front of 112,000 other people? Has the entire student body gone "tech-nerd" or did I just pick a bad day to attend a game?
