The thought of watching Tennessee and LSU playing on that field is just too good to pass up. Also, the Illinois one isn't a joke, they might be better off actually trying the new style.

On a serious note, I'm just glad Michigan Stadium has "Michigan" in the north and south endzones. Not a fan of splitting between the name and the mascot like Texas does.

Florida's would definitely win for the most uneasing - I can only imagine having to play 60 minutes of regulation with the eyes of Will Muschamp fixed on you at all times. For some reason, I saw Oregon's and imagined a game call where they would describe Marcus Mariota, battling typhoid, as fording the line of scrimmage with 1000 pounds of offensive linemen in his wagon.

Noticed someone earlier mentioned having painted end zones and then got 3 negs right away... Why would painted end zones be a bad thing?

It's actually something I've wanted for a while. The Michigan end zone always looks great at bowl games.

Because change is bad.

Actually, it's against tradition, and while new and modern (laaarge video scoreboards are good, RAWK is bad) has some benefits, part of the allure of the Michigan football program IS tradition, and dammit, we should be proud of it.

And...obligatory get the hell off my lawn.

God forbid we change a single thing ever. I'm surprised people on here aren't bitching about the fact that we don't still wear leather helmets. Change is the end of the world around here don't ya know? Fucking old farts... I hope i'm never like that one day.

This makes me sad, because it brought a thought to mind:

Is my most hated fellow airplane customer, the person who has already filled out the mf'in crossword in my seat back magazine, also a fellow Michigan grad? 

It just makes me sad ok?

I always like to do the magazine crossword, so no, not always a fellow Michigan grad.

Although occasionally I like to halfway fill it out, and mess up half the answers I put in, just for a little added challenge for the next guy.  Can he fix it?  Or will he chicken out and surreptitiously switch the magazines, hoping for an empty one?  Or maybe he'll just suck it up and do the sudoku instead.
