[UPDATE 8/26/2014 from Seth:]
While the ticket spreadsheet was awesome for its time, we've known for some time that it's subject to abuse, and more likely to be damaged the more our community has grown. We've been on the lookout for some way to add a layer of security that's still free on both ends. Now we have that!
Go here: http://www.tiqiq.com/sellerdirect and sign in with your Facebook account. Then list your tickets, put MGoBlog somewhere in your description if you like, then copy the link to your tickets and paste on the spreadsheet.
Nobody's forced to use that system. This is just a protection for sellers so their price can't be changed, and for buyers so they know they're dealing with a real human with a name and pictures of their cat.
To go along with the 'more informative headlines' theme, this thread will hopefully get set as a sticky. I have made a spreadsheet listing all people selling and looking for tickets.. http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0Avnckx2kNv9GdGVPQXBQMDZQdFJ4RTJS... Basketball season is here.. I've started up a new sheet in the document for basketball. Ive made the permissions open to anyone to edit, so we'll try the trust method for a while until someone abuses. Feel free to post what you are looking for or selling. If it gets abused, I'll go back to the method of requiring someone to email me and then posting.
Per Mlive, Michigan is increasing tution by nearly 4 percent this fall - 3.9 percent for in-state students and 4.4 percent for OOS students.
The increase puts freshman tuition and fees for Michigan-residents at $14,402 in the lower division — up from $13,856 in 2015 — and $45,410 per year for non-Michigan residents — up from $43,476 last year....and this does not include room and board, which is also being increased.
Here's U-M's recent tuition history:
Out of state tuition
Michigan is hardly alone with tuition increases, Recently, about half of all students, undergrad and grad, are not from Michigan.
If you want cost of attendance numbers, here's the link, and it is not pretty:
I guess I'll put the relevant ones for us down here: Michigan +/- 10 (the same as Alabama), Ohio State +/- 9.5, Michigan State +/- 7.5, Notre Dame +/- 9.5, Nebraska +/- 8.5, Iowa +/- 8.5.
(I included Nebraska and Iowa because they're the teams with the best odds to win the Big Ten West)
Above is the link to the SB article.
They filled out the NCAAT Bracket as if it were the football teams playing the games.
Of course Harbaugh storms into the final four:
Michigan State (aka disrespect!)
Breaking down the Michigan-MSU Final Four game:
We already know how Michigan State-Michigan would play out, based on the authoritative, decisive, leave-no-doubt, wire-to-wire domination of the Wolverines displayed by MSU in their most recent football meeting, when the Spartans beat their rivals down for a full four quarters in totally replicable fashion. That game would've ended up exactly the same way if they'd played it 100 times, everyone agrees.
And finally, the championship game between Oklahoma and MSU:
Our championship pits two College Football Playoff teams, and we'll go with the one that finished rated more highly by the polls and computers and that actually managed to score points in the Playoff.

Didn't recall he'd been reclassified to a junior. But still have him for another two years if things work out.
I've been feeling pretty down about the team's prospects lately, because while I was convinced they would be better next year I wasn't sure that better would be good enough. Between Chatman and Donnal, I felt much better after yesterday.
Go Blue. Beat OSU.
