I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
This is branched off the thread from yesterday about the Athletic Department changing the seating for the Big Chill game and basically screwing all us hockey season ticket holders. (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/meh-news-student-hockey-season-ticket-holders)
I read that some of you had emailed the athletic department about the screw job. I did too and I have not received any response yet. I was curious if anyone else got any messages back if you did send one. If you did one back, what did they say?
My wife and I are planning to make the trip from South Carolina to Bloomington for the October 2 game. Meanwhile, I need some advice on how it is best to get tickets for the game. My brother-in-law will be moving up in August to work on his PhD at Indiana. He would do his best to get tickets using his Indiana connections (and I'm guessing that might be cheapest) I don't know if that would be best. Neither my wife nor I are Hoosier fans, and while I doubt the Indiana crowd would be ravenous, I'm also guessing the Michigan side of things might be more enjoyable for my first Michigan game since 1996.
Would you suggest that I try to get tickets from the official means through U of M, or should I try to get them through Stub-hub, etc.?
Also, for those of you who have been to Indiana, what stadium sections should I avoid- or would that even be a factor if I should stick with the visiting fan sections?
Any other advice about the visit to Bloomington is appreciated. It's a long way off, but I want it to be a good experience for both of us.
Thinking of going to the game this year in Columbus since I'll be a few hours away visiting (non-OSU fan) in-laws. A long way off, of course, but are there any places that are better or worse to sit in terms of getting pelted with bags of urine?
I just got a family request for tickets for the Mass game. Mgoblue has only the endzone available. I didn't see anything available on the board sticky. Ideas other than StubHub??
Thanks in advance.
Just one more reason Ohio sucks. Now they don't even need proof to pull over people with Michigan plates.
I took my son to the recent spring game. Before the game I got an email from U of M that pointed me here:
http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-footbl/spec-rel/041610aaa.html it says for the Michigan Spring football game "Parking: The lots around Michigan Stadium owned and operated by the University of Michigan are free and open to the public. "
I parked in the same lot I pay to park in for games in the fall. It is owned and operated by the University of Michigan and is near the stadium (but not next to it). According the the note from the University, parking there should be free during the spring game but of course since it was Ann Arbor, I got a ticket anyway.
I appealed to the parking referee and got the following response:
"Thank you for your statements. Your inquiry has been reviewed. It has been decided that the citation in valid. The statement refers to the lots adjacent to the stadium, of which this is not one."
I guess I need to have an argument with what "around" the stadium means. I have no satisfaction from anyone at the U either. Anyone happen to have Brandon's email address?
Why does Ann Arbor continue to piss people off and discourage them from visiting? It's one of the reasons I no longer live there.
