to play football, not to play trumpet
For those of you who have purchased tickets to away games in the past, have you noticed whether prices tend to hold steady the week of the game? I'm trying to find a group of 4-8 tickets for the Northwestern game, but haven't had much luck finding anything under around 90 bucks--surprisingly expensive for a game at Ryan Field. Anyone have a good sense of whether it's best to hold off for a price drop the few days before the game?
I did a search but didn't see any content on it besides the UM agreement with stub hub. I'm looking at buying tickets via Stub Hub for the ND game. The cheapest (with most games) seems to be the instant download. I have never seen anyone use a home printed ticket at Michigan Stadium before. Is this legit or should I stay away from those?
Thanks for your help in advance.
If any of you know a good source for Iowa Tickets, please advise. (FYI, I have looked at the sticky post on tickets, but haven't seen a single thing on Iowa Tiks.)
I bought a 4 pack of tickets, and I am only able to go to three games this year. I am going to Western, Eastern and ND. I also have tickets to the Minnesota game that I want to trade for any of the first three games (two tickets). My seats for the Minnesota game aren't great, but I figure some of you would rather go to a Big Ten game. The seats are in Row 83, Seat 21-22. What are you willing to trade and where are they?

Can't wait to go to the Big House this year. Go Blue!!!
I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that my ND 4-game ticket package came in the mail today. I searched the board and didn't see anyone else post that they received tickets yet. SIAP.
So the Athletic Department will now officially endorse ticket scalping through Stubhub, as long as they get a cut.
I've never used Stubhub, but from what I've read it's usually expensive and Stubhub takes a huge cut (which forces prices even higher). The part that makes me most nervous is this:
Throughout the 2011-12 Wolverine athletic season, StubHub marketing assets will be highly visible across football, basketball and hockey properties for the University. StubHub will host a football hospitality event for the historic, first-ever night game at Michigan Stadium, which is Sept. 10 against Notre Dame. Additionally, StubHub will be featured courtside, on dasher board signs, and via radio promotions. The partnership will round out with MGoBlue.com strategic placements and social media elements.
It's just one step closer to advertising inside Michigan Stadium. And if the Stubhub logo appears on the face of the (probably collectors items) Notre Dame/Nebraska/Ohio State tickets, there will probably be a riot toward Dave Brandon's office.
