Michigan Homecoming Game: who? when?


Michigan football has been deluging me with e-mail this year.

Could this have anything to do with a lousy record last year, a coach being sued over a Virginia real-estate deal, an investigation into whether Michigan has exceeded rules on the number of practices, and general decay in the athletic program's ethics over the past years (think Fab 5)? Nah.

This e-mail is interesting because it provides a lot of detailed information about the game this Saturday, but curiously seems to forget to mention the opponent. I've put a couple of pieces of this e-mail in this posting; the full web version is here.

Come to think of it, they don't mention the time of the game, either. Maybe given the recent history of the football team, they decided to hold a homecoming with everything except that dull, boring football game. I couldn't blame them.
