A glimmer of happy news for all of you down in the dumps lately. Nice job Tyree. He does look itty bitty next to Sterling, though.
Lafayette Journal & Courier got their hands on an internal B1G memo through an open records request to Purdue that outlined the B1G conference's projections for revenue leading up to their next television contract in 2017-18. The number they are estimating: $44.5 million per school (Maryland and Rutgers do not receive full revenue shares until 2020-21).
TomVH just tweeted that Virginia's leading receiver, TE Jake McGee, is transferring and will be immediately eligible. We need a TE, and he could be a fit for Michigan. I don't know how to embed but that's the jist of it. No insider info.
I would love to have him, is it too late to retroactively add him to 27 tickets?
Welcome to the team, Jake.
I know this has been beaten to death from all sides, but I wanted inform those of us who are faculty and staff and who had already paid full price for tickets before this email went out that you can still get this discount retroactively by sending a copy of your MCard to the athletic department ([email protected]) with a note requesting that the discount be applied to your regular season tickets.
That is all.
(I did read through the other thread http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/football-tix-e-mail-um-facultystaff, and did not see this useful fact posted, but if I missed it, feel free to delete)
This is a relatively short post, as Michigan only offered five tight ends that I know if in the 2007 class. All I can say is that I'm glad Aaron Hernandez spurned Lloyd Carr's offer in favor of Florida, because 2013/2014 would be an even bigger P.R. mess if Hernandez were a former Michigan student-athlete.
