I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
[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.
Dear mgoblog community,
I'm strongly considering stub hubbing one ticket to the game this Saturday in South Bend, as my son is going as a guest of a family of Notre Dame friends and sitting WITH THEM in the ND section.
I sat with them a couple years ago, and while they're cool, the surrounding fans...
...not so much.
So if I were to buy a single ticket for me, what sections are best in terms of Michigan company?
Thanks, and Go Blue!
I'm sure this gets asked every year, but could someone please shed some light on getting tickets to the tournament. I checked StubHub and there are tickets available, but I don't know if I want to buy single day tickets now, not knowing if we're going to be playing that day. If you go to Indianapolis, can you find tickets the day of? I figure we'll get a bye on Thursday, and either I'll go down for Friday, or Friday and Saturday.
With next week's game (Jan 23rd) vs MSU at Joe Louis I was wondering if there was a standard "side" of the arena Michigan fans typically are designated? I assumed the band will be on the Upper Level, but haven't been able to locate where.
Looking to take my fiance to her first Michigan hockey game and want her to get a taste for the experience. She hasn't been able to make a game at Yost yet, so thought this would be a good start.
Thanks in advance!

hey guys - i just got into michigan law off of the waitlist and will be attending. the first thing i did after getting in was to contact the ticket office about student tickets. apparently they are 'sold out' and there is a waitlist for those interested. do any current or former students have any experience with the student ticket waitlist? do i have a realistic chance at getting tickets off of this waitlist or am i better off searching out tickets through other avenues at this point? i'm even more anxious about this waitlist than i was about the law school waitilist so any insight/advice would be much appreciated!
