"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."
I know there was a thread the other day for the new season ticket holders, but I went back to it and there were some questions left unanswered. Hopefully there are some Big House vets that can answer some season ticket questions for some of us new season ticket holders.
I will get started with a few.
When do we get our seat assignments?
I know there are more than a few people that requested sections 21-25. What are the chances that those who made requests will get non endzone seats?
Do you get offered a few choices or do they just give you a seat or seats?
Also, I was looking at other schools season ticket sites, and I really like the virtual venue that other schools use. It seems like it makes the seat selection process easier.
I really like the virtual venue platform that other schools use. it seems like it makes the seat selection process alot easier. Do any of you think that michigan will use virtual venue or something similar in the near future?
Just an FYI for those of you that were going to try and purchase single game tickets this week through the University of Michigan Alumni Football Saturday's program. Tickets for MSU & OSU have sold out. The Alumni Association only gets 1,000 tickets per game for this program.
I checked today and this is the message I received:
2015 Football Saturdays Ticket Program
Michigan State is sold out.
Ohio State is sold out.
Saw this in the local rag this morning (LINK):
Former Davenport Central football star Roger Craig was back in the Quad-Cities recently and noted that all of his old teams seem to be in transition right now. Davenport Central, the University of Nebraska and the San Francisco 49ers all have made recent coaching changes.
Craig was especially disheartened to see Jim Harbaugh leave the 49ers to become the head coach at Michigan. “Harbaugh is the guy that built the culture there …’’ he said. “We weren’t any good for about 10 years before he got there. We were in a dark hole. He took us out of the dark hole and gave us light.
I’m really afraid they’re going to go backward now.’’ Craig said he liked Harbaugh because his players played hard, like they were “starving’’ for victory. “You have to play like you’re starving. Not hungry. Hungry isn’t good enough …’’
Craig said. “When you’re starving, you’ll do whatever is necessary to get your food. You want your players to play like they’re starving.’’
Happy Mother's Day, and Go Blue!
The nephew of former Penn State running back (and Chicago Bears bust) Curtis Enis was offered by Michigan's staff. Interestingly, he's a running back/free safety. With Kingston Davis getting offers from Florida and LSU recently, offers like this to guys who have position flexibility could pay off down the road. I'm not implying that Davis is likely to flip, but it's just notoriously difficult for northern schools to recruit in the deep south when SEC teams come calling. Enis's other "big" offers are from Cincinnati, Indiana, and Louisville.
Here are Enis's highlights:
Didn't see this posted, but there are some new revelations in the Frank Clark case (to my knowledge none of this was in Ace's piece or on the board, if I'm wrong, please zap the thread).
The hotel manager says Clark threatened her saying "I will hit you like I hit her" which jives nicely with the Seahawks' claim they'd never draft a player who hit a woman. Clark also lied to an officer claiming his girlfriend had been drinking, and that his father was a chief of police.
Also interesting, apparently "the day after the arrest" the Seahawks along with several other teams sent representatives to investigate the incident.
Some great sideline footage and commentary from Michigan Head Football Coach Gary Moeller when his #1-ranked Wolverines went for two points to win the 1990 version of the Backyard Brawl with in state rival, Michigan State.
