"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
[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.
Go Blue. Beat OSU.

Following last second loss to MSU on Saturday, the mass media sure is playing up the future Buckeye departures to the NFL, questions about Meyer's leadership, loose lips sinking ships, and questions about team cohesion after the loss:
I did not expect this for an 10-1 team heading into big rivalry game, but there you have it.
I'm sure Ohio State will bring their best and try to end their season on a spectacular note in Ann Arbor.
I'm just surprised that Urban Meyer wouldn't re-assert control and put the kabosh on all the prima donnas players and their divisive comments.
As for future NFL depatures, I don't know that these talented players would have stayed anyway had they beaten MSU on Saturday. I think most were preparing to go anyway, because they can.
Should be a great game on Saturday for the seniors on both teams regardless.
The PSU game is on right now.
Lost in the football action of today was two BIG wins by the Michigan Field Hockey and Volleyball Teams.
First, in its first game of the NCAA Field Hockey tournament, #10 Michigan beat #7 Wake Forest in Chapel Hill, N.C. Michigan lost to Wake Forest earlier in the year 3-0 in Ann Arbor, so this is a big win. Michigan advances to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2010 and will face #2 seed North Carolina. Michigan lost to NC 2-1 in Ann Arbor earlier in the year, but that was the same weekend as the Wake Forest game, so the result certainly could flip. The semifinal and NCG are in Ann Arbor this year as well, so that certainly could be cool to see.
The Michigan volleyball team also ended a 4-game losing streak with a sweep at #14 Ohio State. Michigan had lost 6 of 7 coming in, including very close losses to OSU and Penn State at home, so this win can hopefully provide some momentum going into the final weeks and (hopefully) the NCAA tournament.
Lastly, Michigan Women's Basketball team scored a 90-62 win over Binghamton.
