Who's planning on renewing their Big Ten Championship tickets from last year? I just received an e-mail about renewing them but I'm not planning on it. I'm 99% certain that we'll reach the Championship game but I'm just going to buy tickets off the secondary market once the time comes. Last year I paid $125/ticket, while comparable tickets were going for ~$10-$15 the week before the game. Probably not the best investment.
Just for fun, who do you have playing in that game? I think it'll be Michigan vs. Wisconsin. Wisconsin doesn't have a single team to stand in their way.
Sam's off, probably on a recruit thing, so Marcus Ray is filling in for him. Marcus had his ups and downs, but he always had an excess of personality, and BTN is missing out by not adding him. (Plus who can resist the Wolverine from Columbus for commentary?)
Besides tuning in (there's only an hour and a half left) you can listen online at www.wtka.com, or listen to the podcasts any time at http://www.wtka.com/pages/9395307.php (or click on above link and podcasts tab). I'd suggest you listen to his recruiting segment, where he talks about hosting players, and how it's different at Michigan, as well as seeing recruits come in like Woodson, Manning, Shaun Alexander (didn't like him), and the best, David Boston (who came in saying he was going to Ohio State and nearly starting a fight...and how that played out in 1997). Speaking of Charles, Ray's next segment is an interview with Woodson, the first time they've ever been on the air together. (But that one isn't up on the podcasts yet, but I would expect it's going up shortly).
So, thinking back to 2011, I recall that I spent a bit of the season wearing holes in the carpet in front of my TV, my Father's TV and the floor at BWW in Ann Arbor, as well. I paced out at least a half marathon between the endings of UTL, OSU and the Sugar Bowl. Took a month off the lives of my sneakers.
So, it being June 8th and nothing at all going on, I thought I'd ask, which games do you think will have you neglecting your home's seating?
I'm figuring OSU again, (I think the game will be tight), and I'm hoping Bama. I think if it's not close it'll probably be not close Bama's way. I'm also thinking MSU, though I'll probably pace that whether it's close or not because it's been so long now.
days until Michigan goes Manningham vs. PSU all over Alabama.
days until Kristian Mateus (70) and the offense can look like cool customers similar to Derrick Alexander (1) after a second win in a row against the buckeyes.
BHGP has posted the 11th B1G Pro Combat uni.
I was very curious how they would handle Penn State...and can't help but think the treatment was perfect.
