My experience was from the sidelines so I can't really give a good "fan" experience perspective but it was pretty underwhelming I thought. About half of the student section got filled and they were all gone by halftime. 1/3 of the fans in the stadium were Michigan fans and they stuck around for most of it. The energy from the stadium was about what you'd expect from a fanbase of a 1-8 team going up against an 8-1 team. Tailgating is probably a typical Big Ten tailgate (but I don't really get to do that when working away games).
FWIW I thought the stadium atmosphere at the start of the 2016 game was kinda cool. Striping the stadium, night game, packed stadium. It uh. Went downhill fast.
The announcer is the opposite of Grapentine in that he gets overly enthusiastic and they play Metallica on 3rd downs. The kind of gimmicks you expect from a 52,000 capacity stadium.

The field is generally the same size between union and 7s, so if you're good at running in space then 7s is more your jam. 15s is a lot more "run 'til you get hit".

Photography, but y'all probably knew that.
Outside of shooting sports I photograph airshows and aviation in the summer for AirshowStuff.com. I've also started binging on national parks. Went to Yellowstone, Mt Rainier, Olympic, and a few others this summer. Going to Everglades in a month. I started my own website for photo stories, too.

They've been having a lot of cool discounts for a while. Not a huge fan of Adidas but the Final Four run will always have been in Adidas apparel so I didn't mind getting a 50% off jersey.

Devil's advocate: If you're strongly rooting for one team to win, you're probably going to notice it more when the commentators say nice things about the other team. If the commentator says a nice thing about Michigan, then Michigan fans might be inclined to agree and forget about what they said. If they say nice things about not-Michigan, then Michigan fans will disagree and remember it more, leading them to think there was some bias.
Just a thought.
