So it sounds like this was a promotion put on by Coke—not the athletic dept.—involving a very limited number of tickets, as was suggested by this tweet:

This came up in his Hello post, and LongLiveBo confirmed that he is indeed the original Jack Weisenburger's grandson.

One more baseball recruiting tidbit: A Perfect Game scout recently compared 2016 Michigan commit Jack Weisenburger to Josh Beckett—

Bando, you are correct about the 1971 game. Although it was not televised by ABC, the game was televised, via closed-circuit TV to Columbus. Proof comes from the November 19, 1971, Ann Arbor News:

Perfect Game has Troy Miller ranked #275 nationally in the 2015 class. Looks like his name will be one to keep an eye out for come 2015 MLB Draft.

That's not all he did. How about bringing the San Diego Chicken and the Clydesdale horses into Michigan Stadium? It wasn't Michigan football alone that filled the stadium.
In the Flyover thread, you specifically railed on Brandon for turning Michigan football into a carnival. Here's Canham in his own words (from a Daily article):
My point is that if Canham were in charge of the AD today, he'd be doing many of the same things that Brandon and his staff are doing. This is a different era. And there are dozens more things people can chose to do rather than go to a football game. Plus, all the games are now on TV, whereas in Canham's days few were, so if you wanted to actually see the games, you had to go to them.
The bottom line is that Canham did all kinds of things to fill the stadium, yet any little or not-so-little change that Brandon makes or any new event he tries is instantly attacked by people on this site.

You keep talking about how tacky U-M's marketing tactics currently are. So I take it you weren't a fan of Don Canham either.

Just to be clear, the person you're referring to, Capt. James Mynning, won't be one of the pilots on Saturday—he'll be the announcer for the pregame air show.

A press release was just posted with details on all the aircraft. It also indicates the air show will begin around 3:15. Here's the opening:

As I said, I was just saying that technically he hadn't signed yet, and I've still seen no official word that he has (not that I'm doubting it'll happen). Anyway, yes, it is good news, and Robinson is obviously pleased:

Technically, he hasn't signed yet, only agreed to terms:

I like how he makes statements, without sources backing him up, and everyone just assumes he's correct.

I would agree that no current college coach should be allowed to coach any of the USA teams (or foreign national teams either). But more than one basketball recruiting analyst has commented today that other college coaches have, while on the recruiting trail, expressed their unhappiness with Krzyzewski coaching the national team. Here's one take, from Brian Snow:
|1 week 17 hours ago||The proposed solution to the||
The proposed solution to the problem doesn't seem to go far enough. Using amateurs instead of pros in international competition is fine, but there needs to be a further step: banning current college coaches from coaching those teams. Why should a select few college coaches get that sort of access to top prospects? It clearly gives them an unfair recruiting advantage.

Perhaps it's out of guilt for being at least partially responsible for much of WH's content being taken down from YouTube.

I thought those two might be brothers.

TomVH posted some photos from Malzone from yesterday.
EDIT: I thought Dunaway was at the far right of the bottom photo above, but that photo was also published with a Steve Lorenz article on Dunaway's commitment, with him identified at the far left.

Hoops are definitely #1, but I do follow the football team closely and throw a post in here and there in football threads.
Anyway, just wanted to note that there is a third Glasgow brother, Jordan, who's a senior at Marmion Academy and plays tailback. He has his own website.

And there were some strong words from Malzone after that game:

Dunaway had offers from Cornell, Harvard, and Saginaw Valley, according to a D Zone article on his commitment. Here are a couple of quotes from the article:

This guy—Mgo-Bo—says he won't be posting anymore, but you might want to make it official judging from his last few posts.

In the postgame radio interview, Hoke said they deliberately limited how much Butt played. Hoke also provided this comment in the postgame presser:

Haven't seen anything on them, but there's this on Gardner:
By the way, he's on the field wearing a shirt reading "Us Against the World."

It's the negativity plus all the snark—with this thread being a perfect example. Good luck wading through all the negativity and snark to find any actual serious responses to the OP's question.
