GameDay Questions and Predictions

Submitted by JR's Flow on September 6th, 2011 at 9:03 PM

GameDay is in 4 days! I have some questions about GameDay. What time are they allowing people into the area? Also it is at the Diag? Also for the rest of people who don't have answers, predictions for saturday? The game and Corso's ridiculous head gear...

Low temperatures are usually recorded around midnight...

If this forecast holds true, I'd expect it to be a pretty nice fall evening in the high 60s, and get a lil chilly by the end.  It would suck if it rained, but just a 40% chance now, and just showers, at that.

It's due north of the Diag, between the Burton Tower/Hill Auditorium/MLB and the Alumni Center/Michigan League.  I would estimate about half-hour/40 minutes to the Stadium by foot. (TIME SAVER: Head down State St. to Monroe or Madison, cut down Cross St. to Division, cut across Elbel Field to Hoover.)

gameday will be warm?  Forecast is for rain again..  Although i said that last time and got jumped on because everyone said it wasn't going to rain because it was 30-40% chance..


Well looks like the same forecast again..


Should be nice and cool for gametime in the 60's..  Hoping it doesn't rain, but if it does ill have rain gear ready this time

Really? I go to school at Pioneer and I've seen them set up in the pioneer front area (the grass across from the stadium). I've seen some frames for large signs and a stage complete with a table in the gameday shape. Are you sure they're setting up at Ingalls? Could they be using both? Perhaps they are setting up here too so they can get shots of the stage with the huge gameday crowd in the background for their pregame coverage.

When we went for the OSU game a few years back, they had announced what time "gates" opened the night before.  Hopefully they do that again this year.  My friends and I were planning on camping out around 6:00 AM.

to see how that setup works on Ingalls Mall. They've chosen some strange spots the other times they came to broadcast. One year they were even inside the stadium concourse (as in not on the field but in a spot where vendors would have been! Then there was the year on the golf course, and the time across the street from the stadium gates (near that service road that becomes Hoover). I wasn't expecting Ingalls Mall but I bet they'll get a huge crowd with it being so centrally located.

I'm trying to decide what potent-potables to consume in preparation for this joyous occasion. Having recently watched Beerfest, I'm inspired to have glorious brews of all kinds.

I have moved beyond the Nattys, Millers and Busches of the world, but I don't have a lot of expert beer experience having just graduated. Any suggestions friends? I'm a fan of IPAs and medium to darker beers.

It would be great to tailgate and party from 9 AM through kickoff!  I would be feeling good by game time.  I wish I had this weekend off work and was able to make it!

As for the game, it may be kind of high scoring. I could see UM 35 - ND 31. DROB may win it for us again on the last drive of the game!

UM 35 ND 14. Borges lets Denard run wild on offense which opens up the passing game and Denard runs for 175 yards while passing for 311 and accounts for all 4 offensive TD's (2 passing and 2 rushing. The UM defense show marked improvement from last week and forces 4 turnovers, one going for a TD late to put the game out of reach (it is an INT return for a TD by Thomas Gordan). It is at this point that BK's head asplodes after turning 15 different shades of purple (which was previously thought to be impossible).
