"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

North Carolina beat UM for the national title not Kansas.
UM beat Kentucy and North Carolina beat Kansas in the final four.
|4 years 44 weeks ago||Oh, I am still confused. The schedule does not indicate........||
that the last game is senior night. I need help. Please message board god...help me.
I will take your word for it though because you have 13,200 points. Or maybe I shouldn't take your word for it for the same reason.
|4 years 44 weeks ago||Hey, message board police, the last game of the season has not..||
always been senior night in previous years. Get over yourselves.
|4 years 44 weeks ago||And that is because 5000 State fans will be there*||
|4 years 45 weeks ago||I am aware of the ticketboard. Have sold many there but.....||
this is so last minute and I am leaving for A2 for the weekend in a couple hours and wanted to get this out there quicker, with more traffic.Thanks.
|4 years 51 weeks ago||Unless you have been to Autzen, don't say that Iowa game....||
was even in the same ballpark as Autzen. I was there in 2003. The game from start to finish was louder than any one moment you could pick as amazingly loud moments in the big house.
N.Dame last year.
Iowa late this year
MSU in 2004.
Autzen is a headache waiting to happen for 3 straight hours.
|5 years 4 days ago||I have already contacted him......||
and hope to hear back at some point. My message? Keep RR. Don't start a N.Dame coaching carousel.
|5 years 5 days ago||He is going to be a good player for another university...||
if some of you get your wish with RR. I am not saying one or even 30 recruits is a reason to keep a coach but this class and the last two currently on campus will likely be decimated with an RR departure. I know, I know....fans say that all the time, then the new coach comes in and convinces most players to stay. Don't see that happening here unless J.Harbaugh or other does what many said RR should have done, which is use the other coaches scheme for at least a year or two in order to play to his talents.
|5 years 3 weeks ago||you can reach me at...........||
row 7, near the net UM shoots at twice, right across from the students and band
|5 years 10 weeks ago||All I have to say is that UM better score 40+...||
per game the rest of the way because they aint giving up less than 35 to most teams this year.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Little brother forever. It is bad enough that the....||
national media barely even knows they have a football team. Now the local media has completely ignored them since about halftime of the UConn game.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||I was watching Maravious about an hour before the game during...||
warmups. He was loose as a goose, having a great time, and getting in the ear of the other receivers and various other players saying who knows what. Good teammate.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||No. Not at all. If anything I think he was praising DR||
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Not just mom. Mike Boren is jewish too.||
|5 years 12 weeks ago||I agree with you 100 pct. I think once the euphoria....||
from the UConn game leveled off, you realize the reality is we have a lot of holes/question marks.
Now, those holes/question marks could swing to the positive side or the negative side. It is too early to tell.
IMO we will learn way more about the team, win or lose after this weekend and at IU.
I also still fear MSU and Iowa may have too much of a power game for us although we appear to not only be faster on D this year, but bigger and stronger.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||I agree. Im not sure what the appeal of those...||
seats are. I would love to hear from someone who has actually purchased them rather than sat in them as a guest what the appeal is. Maybe I am missing something other than that some older people who dont like noise and never want to be outside but still want to be in the stadium. Those seats have a very press boxy feel to them.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Having read this response from you and your edit........||
a couple of the points are more understandable to me. Your friend had the really high priced seats behind the glass. An usher told me that was the spot they had the biggest problems with the speakers. Still not sure why such a glare or trouble seeing the scoreboard. If I sit in the seats I was during a future game I will checkout the sightline to the scoreboards.
When in those seats you mentioned or anywhere behind the glass, there is almost no noise. Those are some high quality windows. There are a TON of speakers lining the ceiling on the outside part of the fourth level that amplified the band sound, just like the speakers on top of the north scoreboard did.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||You are very naive #1. While WDIV may be wrong....||
There is no reason to believe one word coming out of Tate's mouth or his dad's. It is completely in his best interest to say nothing other than "Tate is never transferring".....for multiple reasons I might add.
Maybe he stays, maybe not. But if you or anyone else are counting on him staying becuase of his dad's comments you are nuts.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Amazing how people can see things so differently...||
I sat in the club seats, level 4. Let me comment on all of your bullets with some explanation.
It will be nice when it is cold and rainy but some fans will dress right and still stay outside.
Not sure what sun was glaring on the TV screens but I viewed all 10+ screens inside level 4 and had no problem seeing any of them.
I had no problem seeing either scoreboard. Was never an issue. Maybe it was an issue in level 3 for some reason if that is where your friend sat.
The band sounded the same as always when the mics were off...soft. An usher told me that they were having trouble with the speakers in the club areas the whole game but that they would fix them by the 18th. When the speakers were working the band was plenty loud. The speakers near me were working 90% of the time.
I thought the crowd noise echoed through the club seats the whole game. It was deafening where I was sitting all game. I was surprised how vocal most fans were in the club seats given the stereotypes of which kinds of fans were supposedly purchasing them.
With the sun, again, maybe this was a 3rd level thing. For the most part, the sun never made it in the 4th level...at least past the first 1-2 rows.
I totally disagree with being too far from the field. Yes, the seats are physically further than say the 50th row but the angles and sightlines were created so perfectly that I felt like I was hovering over the field and could see everything.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Wrong....the writers and posters at wolverine.com..........||
have almost nothing to say about MSU football because there is nothing to say. They have been a joke. They are a joke. They will continue to be joke. And yesterdays news from the big ten confirmed what the big ten/midwest thinks of the present and future of spartan football....nothing.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Im an old geyser by m.board standards but I want more,yet better||
rock music. Keep it coming. Just have a nice playlist and good timing.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Not only will all of those seats be filled every game but....||
the capacity of 109,901 will never be the announced attendance anyway.
My guess is that the minimum announced attendance this year will be 112,000 which counts "extras" at the game that may not be sitting in actual numbered seats....club, suite, or otherwise.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Like him or not, Millen is a good analyst.......||
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Maize Outs once a year are idiotic. Just make every game...||
a maize out. 20,000 students and about another 20,000 fans already wear maize to every game. Just make it the regular dress and the stadium will look as great as the ND Game last year every week.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Let me know when you need more shrooms......||
Ive got some good ones.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Thus the problem with cheering good plays in a scrimmage....||
for every good play in a scrimmage, especially long passes, runs, etc...there is an equally bad defensive play and vice versa.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Only one running back was coming out of that meeting.......||
that was Jackson's choice of weapon.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||What kind of poster are you? A 10 year old? You obviously....||
dont know that there were also 2 year breaks in 83 and 84, 95 and 96, and 00 and 01.
UM played UCLA three times, Washington three times, Washington State, Boston College, Colorado, Miami of Florida, and Virginia during those other breaks.
This has happened before for good reason and with good results.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||All that guarantees is that the............||
freep is going to rehash the article of dirt on him that came up a couple months ago. The better he does, the more likely they try to hurt his reputation as an RR recruit.
|5 years 19 weeks ago||My experience at Autzen||
My experience at Autzen causes me to disagree with you. I do not think the fans are closer. Michigan Stadium has its fans in as close or closer proximity than any stadium in america.
There are 3 reasons Autzen is louder.
1) the huge overhangs, like at husky stadium hold in a ton of noise.
2) The stands go more up than out like at michigan stadium
3) fans scream their lungs out all game
