At the beginning of 2010, The Big House will return to its long-lasting place at the top for capacity crowds. Due to recent renovation, Michigan lost the #1 spot to Penn State for the 2009 season. Not the rowdiest crowd, but only because over the history of college football Michigan fans became complacent and bored of winning all the time. So, Michigan has decided to allow other teams to obtain this tremendous feeling of constant success. As more teams come closer to Michigan's all-time winning record, the time for the mask to come off and for Michigan to return to its usual glory will come. That date is to be determined, as the Irish (#2 all-time) continue to try and be Michigan, even during losing seasons. History repeats itself, even in college football, and Michigan will return to glory. Also, Michigan has the best fight song in ""Hail to the Victors.""
Pros: Tradition, Hail to the Victors, Largest crowd in America
Cons: Elder alumni who don't yell ""C"" during MICHIGAN chant
