Thanks for the heads up. Will be very interesting to see what stats they discuss. I believe I read an article last year that applications to Alabama both increased tremendously post national championship years. Will be interesting to see what the theme is considering the Towson trailer but also that UM was interviewed.

If I recall as well, they were on the golf course for the Air Force filming people for this segment. I'm guessing they don't show me because my drunk buddy kept screaming "PUT ME ON TV!!!" while flexing, they put the camera on him however. Although I'm gonna guess that he turned the camera off for that part.

It's easy to do some "shocking" story about the money spend on college athletics.  Whatever they say about it, though, it's way more defensible to be running a huge athletics operation when you're doing so many things on campus right.  A lot of other big-time college programs can't make that argument.  And, as FreeKarl noted, the money is flowing in the right direction at MIchigan--the U doesn't have to support the athletic department.

I hope my DVR doesn't screw up because I'm eager to see the segment.

Not a whole lot of new information in this piece, especially if you are a diehard fan who reads everything mgoblog daily. Still cool and interesting though.

I'm just glad they didn't show very much of the top third of our rabid student section.
