this may be of some local interest
Im sure some other people must have also received this email a few minutes ago but it looks like they are send out options for season tickets next year if you bought a 2014 Go Blue or Family Pack of tickets.
You are guaranteed up to two (2) 2015 Michigan Football season tickets if you choose to purchase them.
• Up to two (2) season tickets may be purchased
• Seats will be assigned in the end zone
In early September, we will follow up with you to see your interest in becoming a Season Ticket Holder.
Thanks again for your support of Michigan Football.
We look forward to seeing you this season, and hopefully next season too!
Its pretty tempting with the schedule next year but I live near Grand Rapids and think 7 trips to Ann Arbor is a little much. Also im a fan of sitting mid level in the corners or sidelines and not being stuck in row 70+ endzone.
SBNation has a fantastic take on the hype videos put out by terrible teams (thankfully Michigan is not featured here - these teams were worse).
Slow Jams for Sad Teams, the honest college football hype video mix
Michigan's field goal kick to secure OT against Northwestern puts the 'ish' in 'OTish'.
Being that I live in Rockford, I am very proud of this kid! Congrats to him and his hard work. Let's hope he can develop a high level of cohesiveness with the other 4 lineman!

RS Sophomore DB Reginald Porter, thought to be an important member of the Utah secondary, injured his knee in practice this week, and will be sidelined for the entire 2014 season at the very least. Obviously we all hope for a speedy recovery, but as Utah is on the schedule both this year and next, this concerns Michigan.
I just found out that Saturday's practice requires tickets! When I heard open and free practice, the thought of tickets never crossed my mind. Then I find out that registration for tickets ended yesterday!
Is there another way to get tickets? My dumbass was telling my kid last night how we're going. Ugh.
Thanks in advance.
