Greetings from the Breslin Center. I m sitting right behind the ESPN commentators, so if you see someone waving embarrassingly while they are talking, that s me.
The best part of the first game was Delaware State s band. They were phenomenal. They blew their horns loud and danced. They also had some great cheers during the game action, like you took too many steps, you took too many> steps when a Vanderbilt player traveled. It got to where during timeouts, everyone s eyes were on them. When they left the floor, they received a standing ovation from Bowling Green and Michigan State fans alike.
The building is about half orange, with the rest being green shirts and/or empty seats. I d say 3,000, it s hard to tell because they are spread out all around the building. Of course, there are about 75 Oklahoma State fans.
OK, my prediction: Falcons by eight.
