Peppers at 10, which seems low.
Has anyone had experience on StubHub for preseason tix? I want to check out a Seattle Seahawks game so normally I wouldn't wait, but I'm wondering if people have seen the prices go down as the game approaches for preseason tix?
...Or is there still some sort of oddly tenacious, T2-like demand for these as well?
Also, at the risk of hijacking, I didn't want to open up a new thread for this, but...
I just finished tearing through my copy of HTTV. Quick congrats to everyone and the hard work they put into it. It is, again, one of the best sporting publications of the year. With everything from The Enemy coverage to the Denard/Kovacs tributes, to the explorations of M history...just fantastic work all-around. Thanks for adding a highlight to the season.
Does MGoBlog have a fixed day before each season to gather everyone's season W-L predictions? If so, delete me. If not, this is as good a time as any so here's mine to kick things off:
Aug. 31Central Mich W Cupcake 1
Sept. 7 Notre Dame F Rees is underrated. Were this on the road I'd lean to a loss, but since at home. Coin flip due to lack of Jake Ryan.
Sept. 14 Akron W Cupcake 2
Sept. 21 @ ConnecticutW Not a cupcake, and first road game, but W regardless.
Sept. 28 --bye--
Oct. 5 Minnesota W Tougher test than expected, but W.
Oct. 12 @ Penn State F We rise as they fall, and here the arcs meet in the middle. Could go either way since it's at PSU, otherwise heavy Michigan lean.
Oct. 19 Indiana W See Minnesota.
Nov. 2 @ MSU F We finally significantly out talent MSU (offense no question, defense coin flip) but the fact that it's at E.L. and that this game is Dantonio's entire existence, means it's a coin flip.
Nov. 9 Nebraska W Typically a coin flip, but my 6th sense tells me we spank them at home this year.
Nov. 16@ NW L NW is a very good team, and I hope I'm wrong, but unless Mattison can solve NW's two headed QB hydra, I sense a frustrating loss for us where we trail the entire game but keep it close.
Nov. 23@ Iowa W See Minnesota. Iowa's home edge will be the only thing keeping this from a blow out.
Nov. 30Ohio State F Will Borges turtle again as he did in the 2nd half last year? Will Mattison solve the puzzle of OSU's running game where he must contain Miller on the edges without getting spanked by Hyde up the gut as happened last year? Our home edge makes this a flip, otherwise, advantage a seasoned Braxton Miller.
Variance 7-5 to 11-1
Prediction 9 Wins - 3 Losses (MSU, NW, OSU)
He will be on sometime before noon Eastern time. Just heard it on there. Anyway, if you have Sirius/XM I figured it would be board worthy so you could catch it.
hehehehehehheheheheheheheh. Top 5 overall player in 2015
Interested to see what the community thinks about these predictions...
- By the end of the season, Devin Gardner will be considered NATIONALLY a better QB than Braxton Miller
- Amarah Darboh and Jehu Chesson will finish the year with more catches (combined) than Jeremy Gallon and Drew Dileo
- Frank Clark will finish in the top 5 in the B1G in sacks (last year #5 was Kawann Short, Purdue, 7 sacks)
- James Ross will be a 1st-Team All-B1G player
- Michigan and Ohio will play consecutive weekends ("The Game and B1G Championship Game)
Please mention if you agree or disagree with "Yes/No" or "Fact/Fiction"...I purposely tried to come up with some predictions that people would disagree on.
Today is on Jeremy Gallon.
