I was at Michigan Stadium today where I had taken my younger brothers for a game of catch with a football in the big house.  First, the field conditions look great.  We had some rain in Ann Arbor this week and I was wondering how well the field had drained.  Second as we were leaving through the tunnel we ran into the team!  They were walking over from Schembechler Hall to the locker room in the stadium.  They looked like they were going to walk through some plays in the big house (they had refs with them, too).
