MB to the, : by trocy sofow ut 6y anmacartwrignt ' Chip Peterson embers of the University ' s Marching land march down the path to Michigan Stadium. The Marching Band provided leadership during football games by playing " Hail to the Victors " each time Michigan Many experiences at the University were memorable, but the marches to Michigan Stadium on brisk Saturday afternoons seem to stand out most vividly. For six Saturdays every fall, students, alumni, and thousands of other Wolverine football fans came together to experience what became more than a spectator sporting event it became a tradition. " I would never think about not going out for the game on Saturday it ' s as integral a part of school as going to class, " said School of Art senior Brian Leach. As students crowded on the path to the stadium, a sense of pride and spirit was recognized by everyone present. Betsy Gerber, an LSA sophomore, said, " When I walk down East Hoover on the way to the stadium, it is amazing how many people surround me. A school of 30,000 people and we all converge at the same place on Saturdays. It ' s an adrena- line rush. " The surge of adrenaline was felt not only by the fans, but by the athletes themselves. " The greatest feeling was the first time I ran out of the tunnel and touched the banner before 106,000 screaming fans, " said Jeff Springer, senior kinesiology major and a member of the Wolverines ' squad. One popu lar tradition was tailgating before the game. Cars flooded the area surrounding the stadium, giving students who lived on south campus a money- making opportunity by renting their front yards out as parking lots. Spenser Hooks, an engineering senior, took a unique approach to this money-making opportunity. " We charged our parents for parking, and then we spent the money on beer. We moved our living room outside and tailgated in honor of our team. Then we came back from the game and either celebrated or drowned our sorrows. It was the Saturday tradition, " he said. Traditions inside the stadium mirrored years past, but also added new memories. " The pride I feel as a University of Michigan student every time the band blares " Hail to the Victors " is overwhelm- ing, " described senior kinesiology student Anne Kampfe. The display of pride extended beyond the pregame activities to never-ending support during the game. The enthusiasm of the fans was most evident at the Michigan versus Boston College game where thousands of students stood in a torrential downpour, squeaking their shoes on the bleachers. Absolutely drenched, they continued to display their support,watched the hip Peterson ichigan football players burst into Michigan Stadium and sprint towards the " Go Blue " Club banner. Their sprint across the field was greeted by the loud cheers of over 100,000 of their fans, and the traditional blare of " Hail to the Victors " from the band.
