No he's not facepalming; he just can't see. [monuMental's classic]
Once more under the lights, dear friends. To the surprise of exactly nobody the final Michigan-Notre Dame meeting will be at night. Via MGoBlue:
The University of Michigan football team will face Notre Dame in a night game for the fourth consecutive season. Notre Dame and NBC Sports announced Thursday (Feb. 20) the Wolverines and Fighting Irish will play at 7:30 p.m. EDT on Saturday, Sept. 6, at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind.
The primetime game will be televised nationally on NBC, and is the last scheduled meeting between the two rivals.
I don't think we can avoid it: we're going to have to have an official MGoBlog tailgate now. Yes, probably with at least one former player. Yes, I've been talking to Jared.
Committed tailgaters (and people with incomes tied to ratings) are asked to do their rejoicing away from the MGoshutterbugs, since it's ND's policy to make the away team's photographers stand on the sideline opposite the press box and shoot directly into the lights.
Upchurch—let it not be said I'm looking out for you man.
The helmets are made extra shiny for maximum glare.
