This is the last tough match before The Game. If Michigan defeated Iowa, the NCAAF sets to witness the most explosive college rivalry in recent times. Michigan will meet Iowa on the field at 1500 EST; that’s 0300 MST. That’s roughly 12 more hours to go.
I plan to stay up and listen to the game online.
Not too long ago, there were 14 undefeated teams. Three weeks later, there are only seven, inclusive of Ohio State and Michigan. After this weekend, I bet only six will survive.
Two undefeated teams West Virginia and Louisville are set to duke ‘em out against each other.
On related note, presenting to you, the new Big House:
Preliminary schematic designs for renovation and additions to Michigan Stadium were shared with the public today (Oct. 23). Once the designs are finalized over the next several weeks, they will be presented to the Board of Regents for consideration.
Athletic Department officials will hold public presentations in Ann Arbor, Flint and Dearborn to share the plans with the community. Detailed information, including the designs, can be found at www.umich.edu/stadium.
The best thing is:
The two proposed structures would rise to a height of 85 feet above the concourse, 10 feet higher than the scoreboard in either end zone. Martin notes the structures also will help direct crowd noise back onto the field, providing a greater home field advantage.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
The Michigan Daily has more coverage on it.
Let’s Go Blue!
p/s – bless the ITD. Listen to the pre-game trash talk, previous games, etc. The ball game should be on when it should be on.
