30 Days Until The Michigan Game

No, I am not looking past Colorado State, Florida Atlantic, or Purdue.

In 2003 I sat in the Metrodome and was convinced that I was about to see the ultimate turning point in the Gopher football program. We were kicking Wolverine tail all over the place. The Dome was packed, it was loud, and it was fun.

And then it happened, the great Michigan comeback. On ESPN no less.

That night after a few too many beers I vowed I would go to Ann Arbor in 2004.

I did. My fraternity brother Jason and I took a long weekend to Ann Arbor. Our fraternity, Delta Kappa Epsilon, is headquartered there and the Michigan chapter was kicking off, pardon the pun, their 150th year on campus.

Here are some pics from the Big House.

I was convinced we were going to win the game. But there was a weird aura that day. It was Michigan’s Homecoming game. It was as if they, Michigan, knew they were going to come back and win. Kind of like the New York Yankees.

They did.

Let me say something nice about Ann Arbor. I really enjoyed our stay there. The people were friendly, the city is clean, a fantastic college town.

That night after not having any beer I vowed I would go back to Ann Arbor in 2005.

I am.

30 days until the Gophers and their faithful followers make their way back to Ann Arbor to take back the Little Brown Jug. It’s been 21 years.

It’s time.
