here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
Re. the "You Suck!" at the end of the 3rd down stop version of Temptation, can we please please please stop it?
It's seriously trashy and classless, totally unbefitting the caliber of institution that Michigan is. Maybe a difference in the way they are mic'ing crowd noise this year, but I noticed it more prominently than usual during the game on Saturday, and am noticing it a lot as I watch the game again right now.
I don't know if this is exclusively a student section thing or the whole stadium saying it. But, whoever it is, stop. You're embarrassing yourselves and Michigan. Come up with something more clever / less trashy.
As the absurdly synoptic headline indicates, UM/MSU single game tickets are being sold at www.mgoblue.com - Here's the trick to get tickets together:
1. Open two different browsers (diff programs)
2. Navigate both to mgoblue
3. Select MSU game
4. Enter "1" for tickets desired
5. Do not click "Best Available" or a section. Select a specific section
In honesty it might take you some tries to find out what sections have back-to-back or parallel seats. I was able to secure Section 8, Row # and Row #+1, Seat 11 through this method. $75/pop is better than whatever exorbitant rate they're going to be going for if both teams come out swinging these next couple weeks.
I wanted to know if anyone could give me a price range for scalping some tickets at the game this weekend in South Bend.
Espnu is rebroadcasting the game at midnight est.
I just received an indication that the MMB will be welcoming the Michigan Ballroom Dance Team on to the field to do a jive with them for halftime at the Michigan-Michigan State game.
Below is one of the UMBDT's tryouts from the beginning of 2009 (note that everybody tries out at once so you'll see varying levels of experience):
Of special note: The UMBDT has won the last three USA Dance Collegiate National Championships in Columbus, OH. This year can probably expect more of the same, since they are a huge power in the midwest collegiate circuit.
Some of you may have seen this before but for those who have not, enjoy:
