The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.

This is completely due to the move of the BCS games to cable. I a good case study for is what happened to MNF when it moved from ABC to ESPN. While the NFL did their best to give it a second tier schedule which didn't help, even the highest rated MNF cable games don't approach the broadcast numbers. Being down 11% is about right since cable reaches about 15% fewer homes. They get lower viewership by moving sporting events to cable, but make more money in the end.

...and I loved the music at the end of the game. Normally I hate piped in music, but I felt that this environment was a bit different and it worked. The game started off primarily MMB, and after halftime it transitioned to piped in music. I think I could honestly say I would have prefered that when I marched because after halftime - especially long days like yesterday must have been - I would have liked to rock out with my fellow students under the lights. I just hope DB doesn't try to do something like that for a noon game, that is a completely different scenario. I will also say, as someone who loathes Journey, hearing what was left of the stadium sing Don't Stop Believin' when the music cut out was pretty cool. That might have been fun to hear during the game.

Buffalo Billards is nice, but you have to order your drinks from the bar...the waitstaff has never served me since they made it an official Michigan bar. A lot of people, and a lot of fun but the lack of service made me stop going for football, though I still go for basketball games after work. If it were me, I would take my parents to a place like Baileys, especially if you get there early, you may be able to snag a couch spot. The service isn't great, but at least they bring you food and drinks.
