I want you to know I predicted the Spartan victory over the Buckeyes. I also want you to know that at the premier tailgate in the USA, the Little House, after Michigan's demolition of the Golden Gophers, we were watching the MSU-OSU game and all the Wolverine faithful were rooting for the Spartans. (It's true! Danielle was there, she can vouch for me!) Now, we know that would never happen in East Lansing if the Spartys were watching Michigan-OSU. That's the "Michigan Difference!" (lol)
Just a helpful hint on your Short List, it is Bowman, not Bowmen and John, not Jon Wooden.
Here is an example of what college is all about: as you may have heard, one of the U-M marching band members, Patrick Fleming, died in an auto accident last Monday. There were various tributes to him at Michigan's game Saturday.
What you may not know is that members of Ohio State, Michigan State and EMU marching bands went to Ann Arbor this week to pay their respects and show their support.
