Here's something cool for a sloooow sports day. This online publication here in Livingston County just posted a cool new high-quality drone video of the U-M campus and the Big House. It was shot this week and gives a great flyover view of what the new endzones look like, and has some great footage of central campus, too.

The link is here.

Uh, this is awkward, there might be people who never knew there were other words to The Victors, despite being basically fanatic about their alma mater.  Anyone have a good source for the lyrics and tune so someone can learn it and be a better person?  Asking for a friend...

Man, I love the U-M Glee Club's singing. OK, here's what I found online for the FULL lyrics of "The Victors." I assume this is what they're singing!

Now for a cheer they are here, triumphant!
Here they come with banners flying,
In stalwart step they're nighing,
With shouts of vict'ry crying,
We hurrah, hurrah, we greet you now,
Hail!

Far we their praises sing
For the glory and fame they've bro't us
Loud let the bells them ring
For here they come with banners flying
Far we their praises tell
For the glory and fame they've bro't us
Loud let the bells them ring
For here they come with banners flying
Here they come, Hurrah!

Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu'ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan
the leaders and best
Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu'ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan,
the champions of the West!

We cheer them again
We cheer and cheer again
For Michigan, we cheer for Michigan
We cheer with might and main
We cheer, cheer, cheer
With might and main we cheer!

Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu'ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan,
the champions of the West!

So toggling to the source code option and pasting the iframe code from YouTube didn't work. Also, pasting the URL into the "Insert Media Embed" option returned a message saying "Failed to fetch content for the given URL."

Is the inability to embed YouTube videos on the board a known bug?

I went to movie night last Saturday, skipped the movie but toured the locker room and walked on the field. The new field looks great, and the blue endzones are fantastic. What really surprised me was how cushy the field was with all of the rubber bits embedded in the turf. 

Can't wait to see Michigan running into those beautiful blue endzones about 9 times on September 8th!
