    Michigan game ball delivery

    pretty cool...... Sgt. Adam Sniffen of the 101st Airborne Division from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, jumped from a Cessna several thousand feet above Michigan Stadium and parachuted into the largest football stadium in the country.

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    I'm pretty sure we did this last year for the Army game?

    we didn't fly in the game ball they just flew in with Iowa State, Army, Iowa, and USA flags...and it was 1.5 or 2 hours before the game.

    At the bowl game they did it just before kickoff.

    I thought the guy with the Iowa State flag had the game ball?

    I remembered doing so in Tempe but maybe I was misremembering the Army game.

    Yeah we did, it was really cool. They had a video camera on the guy's head and had a live shot on the video board. Very cool.
