RBD Tour: Season 5

This is the 5th year of the Randy-Ben-Derek U of M football tour. Previously we traveled to Northwestern, Indiana, Illinois, and Notre Dame together.

This year was Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin. It was a very fun road trip marred with a very frustrating game. Michigan got blown out 45-24.

On Friday we drove to Chicago and hung out with our cousin Scott for the night. We got there at 9, slammed a 16 oz. energy drink at 10, played games until 2, couldn't sleep (duh), and then left at 6:30 for the game.
Apparently I'm famous in Madison...
We made it to the stadium with about an hour of free time to walk around. Overall the Wisconsin fans were very courteous and friendly.
While walking around we saw a tent setup and people handing out free Sports Illustrated issues highlighting the Heisman trophy. So we walked over to the tent and found out the actual Heisman trophy was inside and we could get our picture with it.

Also inside the tent was Dan Patrick interviewing former Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne. It was pretty cool.

The game was exciting until halfway through the third quarter when Wisconsin ran away with it. So our record is now 3-2 in these away games. Hopefully the Wolverines will turn it around soon.
