Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.
As I'm right now scouring the ticket websites looking to buy either 1 or 2 tickets for tomorrow, I need information on what sections/areas of Lucas Oil Stadium are most likely to be most Michigan-friendly.
I would assume that anyone on the blog that attended last night's victory over UT would be in the know. Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I want to jump on tickets soon. I don't think tickets will get much cheaper on the secondary market than they currently are, with both fan bases within easy driving distance of Indy.
BTW, if anyone has an extra...
MgoBloggers, I need your help. I am about to pull the trigger on tickets for the Final. I need to know which sections of risers behind the baskets are the "Michigan side". Sections 123-128 or 103 to 108? Also, if you can identify any other lower level sections that will be primarily Michigan fans, please let me know. Thanks.
Michigan Athletic Director David Brandon confirmed with me in a one-on-one interview on media day that a working design is ready for the next stadium expansion, which would start on the south end zone.
The specs include all-bleacher seating, which will rise up to enclose the spaces between the sideline structures to the scoreboard at a height that the scoreboard will appear as if it is "set into" the new seating area.
The design would also make the seating appear like a second deck, as a concourse will be included in the new construction below the new seating. Brandon said the waiting list for season tickets supports the expansion.
He offered no thoughts on a how soon he would take this project to the Regents for approval. He said the south end zone expansion would increase the stadium's capacity by 6,000.
This can only mean that a similar NORTH expansion would follow at another time in the future to balance the stadium's appearance from within the bowl.
With this updated information, one can reasonably conclude that including a north expansion of an additional 6,000 seats, we can project the capacity of Michigan Stadium will eventually increase to at or near 122,000 (and 1).
We're looking at taking a group up to Madison for the game and are wondering where is a good place to sit at Camp Randall? We're rather sit with Michigan people than go for better seats with Badgers. Any advice from the good folk of the Board?
A friend was gracious enough to give me four tickets to the Toledo game. The only issue is that the seats are not together. My wife and I will be using two and my step-son and his buddy are going to their first game at the Big House. I'm hoping to get some feedback as to which section might be better for my wife and I to sit in. Two of the tickets are in Section 17 up high and the other two are in Section 40, also up high. My wife prefers the sunny side, but I can't remember which one that is - I've only been to one game and I was fairly intoxicated....
Thanks for your help!
