[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.
Does anyone know what section Michigan's allotment is/is usually in? Also, if Michigan's allotment has already been sold? Four tickets together are going for a minimum of $500 a pop on Stubhub, and if we're going to be spending that kind of money I'd rather be amidst comrades.
I have been looking for some cheap-ish or face value tickets for Illinois with not much luck. Stub hubhas been the best as far as price but really only selling in pairs and with fees it comes to $100/ticket which is too much for me (poor grad student).
I'd be driving in from Grand Rapids so i'm nervous about buying at the gate before the game (i'm an ex-band member so i want to see pregame if possible) especially since there's gonna be a lot of alums coming for homecoming. Any advice, even snarky as long as its constructive?
Looking for 5 total tickets. Preferably 3 together
and 2 together (got 2 together)
Sorry if I'm missing a board guideline, but I have a quick question regarding row designation at the Big House as I'm trying to get some tickets for Illinois. Several sections at the Big House do not appear to reach field, more specifically Sections 5, 7, 8, 10, 14, 16, 17, 27, 29, 30, 32, 36, 38, 39, and 41 (OCD is an awful thing). My question is whether seats in these sections use the same row numbering as the others.
In other words, is Section 5, Row 1, actually at the same height as say Section 6, Row 20? Or alternatively, does Section 5 just "start" at Row 20, and Section 5, Row 20 is right next to Section 6, Row 20? Thanks in advance for any info.
I forgot that I still have tickets to Saturday's game. Unfortunately, I can't make it because I will be spending my birthday sitting for the LSAT. I know that stubhub is an option, but I'd rather not help the enemy. Especially not a fanbase that turned their backs on what when down in State College for years.
Has anyone had positive experiences with craigslist or is it a bit outdated? Any other decent options out there?
Also, they're digital so would I just forward the email with the tickets, send the barcode, or is there a specific procedure?
Edit: section 34, row 82, seats 4 and 5 price $75
Now that I'm getting old enough that using my old student ID is no longer plausible, I'm finally venturing out of the student section and into the world of buying game tickets on StubHub. Collective wisdom of MGoBlog: is it generally better to buy early on StubHub, or wait until the game approaches? I've been monitoring Hawaii tickets over the past few days, and they seem to only be getting more sparse and expensive. Does it depend on the game, or is there a general trend?
