A look back in order to look forward (The Big House lights)

I've been doing alot of soul searching the past 3 years. I was not a fan of the Rich Rod hire from the beginning, and it got me to thinking about the new lights. Bo Schembechler and Lloyd Carr didn't need to play under the lights to win big10 championships...just another gimmick in Rich Frauds arsenal.

He needs lights to counteract the BIG 10 WEATHER because 4 wide receiver sets don't work in BIG 10 WEATHER.  They only play well under false lighting.

You're right! Man, if all of your introspection came up with this brilliant conclusion, I agree.

It's not like Canham would have done everything in his power to promote the Michigan brand, and the night game and Alabama game are prime examples of Dave Brandon doing that.

The 3-3-5 and the spread offense can only successfully co-exist in a artificially lit environment. It totally makes sense. Can't wait for that ND game to see them gel. I still cannot wrap my head around why RR wanted to change our mascot to the Bald Eagle. Any insight?
