I bought my tickets through the athletic department this morning and have been buzzing ever since. Everyone is excited and rightfully so. Then I got to thinking about how cool it would be if the fans traveling to the game coordinated our colors so that our section of fans will stand out. I'm tired of hearing people like Tim Brando talk negatively about this bowl and our team. People need to know that THIS IS MICHIGAN for god's sake. This bowl is a huge statement to the rest of the country. Do we Maize it out? Or do something differently? Mods please assist in the promotion of this if possible. I haven't heard anything from the athletic dept so why not get the wheels turning right now. Hail to the Victors baby, Geaux Blue!!!
Just a thought here. I know there was a lot of dislike for this year's maize out shirt.
And we have high hopes of filling up the Big House for the spring game.
Now, I'm not entirely confident of when the decisions on the shirts are made, but perhaps they can have people who attend the spring game choose. Every person who comes gets to vote. Perhaps by getting the whole entrance system organized and using an electronic voting system or even using the texting system (not my favorite idea).
-let people who care about Michigan football vote on the shirt
-let people who care about the shirt come and raise the numbers for the spring game
-voting, democracy, America, Ricky Stanzi. Love it or Leave it.
I have been to The Game several times in the Big House, and I don't ever remember seeing as much red there as I did today. With the exception of the student section, it looked bad from the start, and the Big House still looked bad even when the stadium was full.
The color blue just doesn't stick out enough to be visible. Frankly, to see so much red there today was an absolute disgrace. I don't care if it's cold weather; I don't care if people don't have maize gear - the university needs to make this game a Maize-Out from now on. Actually, I think every game should be a Maize-Out, since the color maize sticks out much better, but I don't know if that will happen.
Oh, and we need something in place to lower the number of opposing fans who can get tickets to this game. It pisses me off to see our home field advantage being thrown away like it is.
The team played with heart today - I can't really find major fault anyone except Tate. We were tough, and we showed the true potential this offensive system has. Brandon Graham, thank you - you have great things ahead of you in the NFL, as sad as I am to see you leave Michigan.
anybody watch World Series of Poker on ESPN? The 21 yr old is from the State of Michigan. He had a crowd of family and friends sporting the maize out, maybe his dad or friends went to Mich, not sure, but cool to see the maize out on the road and on the air.
