I’ll be up at the Football Bust tonight, not sure what to expect.   Along with the typical team awards, speeches, and M ring presentations, they’ll be honoring the 1989 Wolverines which should be nice.   I might do some kind of live update or chat if anyone is interested.  They’re serving cocktails beforehand so you might want to tune in.

More info on the Bust here.  If you are up there stop by and say hi, I’ll be at the media table.
