Hell of a game you guys

Hey everybody I just wanted to say you dominated us from start to finish and Michigan looks great and I can see you guys ripping apart Ohio State next weekend. Some things I wanted to reflect on with my visit to Ann Arbor.

1. The people here are very friendly and fun to talk to and to be honest I'm sad to leave because I wanted to see more of the campus.

2. The Big House is loud and awesome my ears are still ringing from the noise and your fans are loud and passionate like ours lol

3. Michigan Stadium ushers are so helpful to visiting fans who are new to the stadium I had no idea where my seats were going to be at in the stadium so I asked some people and I found them right away! I was opposite of the scoreboard that wasn't working at the endzone.

4. Denard Robinson is an amazing athlete and you're very lucky to have him and Toussaint. Both of them played amazing!

5. Your defense is incredible! They completely shut down T-magic and Burkhead and we really didn't have an answer to your defense.


It was an incredible experience and I hope to be back again soon because I had so much fun and I love Ann Arbor already lol. Next time I hope to see more of the campus! Have a great weekend all of you and I'm sure you're going to throw a hell of a party in Michigan tonight lol. Great effort Blue and always GO HUSKERS! :)

For your thoughtfulness and class! This is just the start of a rivalry that looks to provide tons of excitement for years to come. Have a safe trip home and as always, Go Blue :)

You are always welcome around these parts- glad to see that there is another fanbase in the B1G that values sportsmanship and class.  Good luck against Iowa and your bowl game, Nebraska is a better team than the score reflected.

lol man oh man you guys go all out on gameday. That golf course see's a lot of people and cars on Saturday I can tell lol.

Now the round building next to Michigan Stadium that's Crisler and the one next to it is your hockey rink right? Nice field hockey field too!

Actually the addition next to Crisler is a brand new practice facility.  The hockey rink is on the other side of the parking lots and practice fields, it's a much older looking building.  It is really beautiful and really takes you back if you can get in when it's empty and look around.  Definitely worth a visit.

Glad you enjoyed your trip, we (most of us anyway) pride ourselves on being good hosts- we have learned from watching the way MSU and OSU do things!

looked like either a track or some kind of atheltic complex. Do you guys have an indoor practice field for Michigan's football team? I won't lie I bought a souvenir while at the Big House lol. It's a yellow T-shirt that says Michigan in blue on it and it's yellow or what you like to call maize :P. I got a program too so I'll be reading that on my flight home lol

The team recently moved out of their old practice facility Oosterbaan fieldhouse, they are now at Glick Fieldhouse, which opened a couple years ago.

Either way, Crisler and the stadium are a bit separated from the other sports.  Hope you got to see a bit of the town while you were in A2, or get to see some more when/if you can make it back!

that not only have the Husker fans I've interacted with been very classy but what I saw on the field today echoed that as well. I saw players from both teams helping each other off the turf and showing a lot of respect towards one another. I wish more teams in the B1G behaved that way. Yes I'm looking at you sparty and tsio. I think Nebraska was a great addition to our conference and I'm surprised it took as many attempts as it did to gain entry.

thanks for post husker, i think this will be a good rivalry in the future as both teams will most likely play for division champion from year to year once michigan state's magic run burns out

The birth of a rivalry? I think so. Thanks for visiting Ann Arbor. Glad you had a great experience. Hope you guys beat iowa friday and hopefully Michigan takes care of business next Saturday. Go Blue and Beat ohio!

I was very excited to get Nebraska in the B1G and posts like this are confirming my beliefs about your school. Can't wait to play you guys again next year, and best of luck to you next week.


November 19th, 2011 at 4:24 PM ^

and totally deserved the win. Wolverines beat the Huskers in all 3 phases of the game.

I really expected a Nebraska win today and was disappointed it wasn't a more hotly contested game.

We'll get after you next year in Lincoln, Go Big Red!

I smell a great rivalry in the making . . . great traditions, great teams, great fanbases - a chance to show America how the game should be played on and off the field.  I hope our fans are as gracious when the game goes against us.

I'm thrilled you enjoyed A2; we take our role as hosts very seriously.  You make me homesick (I live in Australia now and getting back for a game will be rare indeed).  I hope our fans enjoy Lincoln next year.

Win out big, Big Red . . .  and GO BLUE!

 You sir are a gentleman and a scholar...

On a sidenote, I want to make it to next year's UM-Neb game, any suggestions on where to tailgate and where to hang out at night in enemy territory for a non-HUsker sorta kinda grown guy??
