This e-mail was sent out to the Michigan student body by Dean of Students Sue Eklund: We know that it can be uncomfortable being in an opposing team's environment, especially when the stakes are so high. We would like to offer a few suggestions in order to help you stay safe and have a positive experience this weekend: --Try carpooling to the game; if possible, drive a car with non-Michigan license plates. --Keep your Michigan gear to a minimum, or wait until you are inside the stadium to display it. --Stay with a group. --Know and obey the laws regarding alcohol use. --If you are of legal age to drink, use alcohol in moderation. Stay in the blue. --Stay low-key; don't draw unnecessary attention to yourself. --If verbally harrassed by opposing fans, don't take the bait. --Avoid High Street in Columbus. If at any time you feel unsafe, you should call 9-1-1 for assistance. U-M campus police also will be available in Columbus to support our fans. We look forward to a tremendous game on Saturday. Let's help the Wolverines win with spirit and class. Go Blue!
