"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."

That sucks. I'm sitting on a delta plane right now heading to Reagan with empty seats

Since the room is still available, it's too bad they can't open it up and let us BYO

It has nothing to do with lawsuits or insurance. The event was scheduled to take place inside a building not under a tent.
The tailgate was set up for approximately 1,000 fans to participate and it sold out. I assume that it took some effort to make arrangements for the event and it isn't so easy to snap your fingers and reschedule it 8 hours earlier and find vendors who would be interested in putting it together and taking it a part when a storm is coming.
I was hoping it would be able to be rescheduled but we will figure out something else to do.

Blackout Byrd is still on. It is up to turn it into a maize-out!

It messed up my flight but Delta was able to change it and they waived the change fee. There is a late Friday night flight out of DTW at a reasonable fare - only a couple seats left last time I checked.

Looks like it's a done deal. I'm still going.
|2 days 19 hours ago||My flight home is early on||
My flight home is early on Monday morning and it looks like that is right when the storm is going to hit. If you are going back Sunday I think you will get out but who knows for sure. I am staying with family so I will just wait it out if I have to. I figured it was better to rebook my trip out now rather than wait until there are no seats left. I thought about staying on the morning flight and rent a car to go out there but I have never driven to College Park before, I haven't been there in over 25 years and have no idea what Game Day traffic will be like. I have to pick up tickets at will call and envisioned missing the first half if I didn't make the change. I hate to do this on rumors but I think Balas is connected.

This has been stressing me out beyond belief. I had a flight to DC on Saturday morning that is to arrive at 10:10 a.m. which was more than enough time for a 8:00 game but not enough for a noon game. Delta was able to switch me to the Friday night flight to DC with no change fee so I am set to get wet and Go Blue!! I am no idea what the alumni association is doing with the tailgate.

BTN coverage is regionalized. The local cable operator decides which game to put on the main BTN channel and which go on the overflow channel. Likely means that U-M will be on the main channel in Detroit but overflow in Chicago. I think the issue is that overflow channels are not high def.

I don't have to watch a highlight video of that game. I was there and I have never been so wet before or after in my life. It was a torrential downpour from before the game started until after it ended and it never let up. Ever since I heard I am road tripping to a tropical storm the thought of that game is the thing that keeps coming into my head. At least this time I will be leaving my wife at home.

I'm glad to hear about this. The 2015-16 freshman class is full of blue chip recruits so there should be some exciting things to come for Coach KBA and WBB. I think the coach likes being here. She has a young family and she has said in interviews that things work better here for her family life than they did at St. Johns.

Thanks for the updates! I'm looking forward to the season.

During one of the TV timeouts they had a recognition for the 1981 Rose Bowl team so there definitely a number of former players there. I heard AC was going to be there for that.

Flying in on Saturday morning from Detroit to visit my daughter who is a recent U-M grad and lives in DC. We are going to metro to college park early and go to the alumni tailgate. Our tickets are at will call so I have no idea where they are but they are with the alumni group. I'm thinking the delta flight from dtw to scan Saturday morning will be a quasi alumni charter flight.

Nix Jump Around - it is a tradition at Wisconsin games and it is one of the most annoying things I have ever listened to. Rock and Roll Part 2 is also something that should be reserved to the pro arena.
It would be a tough choice if I could choose between getting rid of the TV timeouts or the piped in music. I think I would choose getting rid of the TV timeouts because that would take the piped in music with it.

I missed it - couldn't get though the mass of humanity that they weren't letting through the gate fast enough. I did see at least four event staff doing absolutely nothing while we were just standing there.

The Bowl Games are fun espcially if we win and if the destination is good. The Rose Bowl is the best.
