I’ve always been an avid sports fan - but no sporting event, game day experience, or team in general can match my passion for Michigan football. Although I knew early on my chances of playing college football were miniscule at best (or perhaps better put, non-existent), I also always knew that I was destined to be a Wolverine. Football was my initial introduction to the Maize and Blue. When Desmond Howard won the Heisman Trophy in 1991, I was five years old – this was my first ‘Michigan hero’.

There is no comparison to being a U-M student in the Big House - football Saturday's are the epitome of the Michigan experience, and hands-down my favorite season, past-time, and aspect of being a Michigan student. I am convinced the Big House is one of the most impressive scenes in college football. Michigan football is tradition, and I am thankful to be a part of this tradition.

    Thanks Brittani :) I appreciate your feedback! An article about the ND game was just posted - and what a game it was. I think I'm still recovering from that game - amazing.

    PS. I have a feeling I would get along well with your best friend.

    One other thing. Now that you've recovered from the Notre Dame game, I'd like to hear your perspective of this from game day!

    This is awesome! Julie, I've never been a big football fan, even though I attended the University of Michigan for four years, sat in some of the best student football seat, and had a best friend who bled maize & blue... your writing truly inspires me and gets me pumped for Michigan games every weekend as I sit here in Badger land with these damned Wisconsin-ites. Keep it up Julie!!!
