Does anybody know why the bust is not in Ann Arbor? I know historically it has been in Livonia, but it made me think when I heard the announcement at last week's game.

Laurel Manor is huge. Nothing as big in Ann Arbor to handle the crowd. Possibly Crisler but then catering to such a large crowd in Crisler is a nightmare.

I wonder what song Brady Hoke is going to choose?
