Wear White Against Michigan and Show Up Before 7
Surprising nobody, the Michigan-Penn State game Saturday night has been officially acknowledged as a student whiteout. The planning has been in the work for months now, ever since the Temple White House ticket snafu, but this marks the first time that Intercollegiate Athletics has acknowledged the student movement.
As is to be expected, Facebook was the primary motivation behind this movement, with the “WHITE OUT VS MICHIGAN” Facebook group having over 12,000 confirmed guests.
Another Facebook movement has been making the rounds this week regarding the Michigan game. “Project 7” aims to fill the student section by kickoff, asking students to be in line or in their seats no later than 7 p.m. The group has close to 5,000 confirmed guests at the time of writing, and notes that the students “relaxed into complacency” following being deemed the “Best Student Section in the Nation” in 2005.
Regardless of the numbers and the medium, the message is clear: Show up early, wear white.
