Just as an aside, a football game at the Big House is quite an experience. First time I went was with my brother, an Oregon State alum. UMich vs. OSU, 9/19/15, Harbaugh’s first home game. Attendance, 109,651. Team went 10-3, beat OSU 35-7, though OSU scored first.
UMich fans are a classy bunch, let’s just say the complete opposite of another land grant school with which we’re all familiar. And Ann Arbor reminds me of Berkeley in a lot of ways. The game itself reminded me of the Stanford games I attended in the 1970s. Great tailgating, lots of activities, lots of excitement. Like Alabama, people dress up for the games.
People wanted my opinion as to whether a California coach — albeit one trained by Schembechler — would be successful in the tundra.
