Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
Alright guys, I need your help. So I got a woman who is actually excited to go to a football game with me, she said she wanted to learn more about the thing I love so much (Awesome right? I know).
So I wanted to get tickets for a game and since I want her to experience a good game (also I personally want to) I want to take her to the State game. Now I'm looking at tickets and prices and I see some good bargains, but I need some advice: Should I go for the higher priced tickets lower in the bowl or just snag the cheap tickets closer to the top?
Now having been to countless Michigan games I know there isn't a bad seat in the place, but for her I want to give her the best experience a poor college kid can provide. Also does anyone know of any good deals or anywhere to find moderately priced tickets? I have already checked the MgoBlog spreadsheet and there wasn't anything there for me.
My price range is anywhere from $0-$130. Thanks in advance friends!
Breakdown: Shaw was mean to an unpadded osu player last year. During a dinner at Coach Jacksons house there were airsoft guns. They are HIGHLY dangerous. RR recruits bad people to represent the school. Also, MGOBLOG is involved.
Yes,I know the whole thing is just stupid. It involves the blog we love and one of our top running backs, although meaningless it is still "news".
I went back 8 pages on the MgoBoard and didnt see anything that looked like it had anything to do with this, so if it was posted then neg away.
Sorry if this was posted within one of the many other Michigan-OSU threads, but I thought it gave a lot more insight than we have seen so far.
I think they are leaning toward splitting Michigan and OSU up and having some kind of cross divisional rivalry week that will more than likely be the 2nd or 3rd to last week of the season. Not as good as the last week obviously, but I guess better than mid-October. We'll see.
Edit: For those of you out there that have been coming up with possible divisional splits, it sounds like they are considering splitting all the major rivals. What would these divisions look like? Thanks!
Consensus is that, coming out of the B10 meetings in Chicago, momentum had somehow shifted away from keeping UM and OSU together in the same division and preserving The Game’s special place on the college football calendar. Fortunately, in a recent Q&A with Adam Rittenberg, Jim Delany seems to leave the door more open than many have been led to believe. He explicitly says that a final decision has not yet been made and makes it sound as if more than one proposal might even be placed before the ADs and Presidents for discussion. He also says that fans’ views are an important consideration that will not be cast aside lightly.
So, instead of spending all of our energy complaining and attacking each other on MGoBlog, we have the next three to four weeks to make ourselves heard as loudly as possible on this issue. My suggestion to anyone who feels strongly about this issue and wants to do something constructive is to take Jim Delany at his word and draft a very simple letter (one or two paragraphs max) and mail copies to Jim Delany, Dave Brandon and Mary Sue Coleman. Emails and voicemails are easy to skip over and/or delete, but thousands of letters delivered by the Post Office every day are extremely difficult to ignore.
I plan to send 10 copies of my letter (one every day or two for the next two weeks) to each of the above. And my suggestion is not to bash Delany or Brandon or threaten them with season ticket cancellations or protests or boycotts, but simply to make it clear how many of us there are out here who strongly disagree with splitting the two teams and moving The Game. If fans' viewpoints matter and our letters outnumber those leaning the other way by a ratio of 10:1, the B10 might just think twice before changing the formula that helped create the greatest rivalry in college sports over the past 40 years.
I do not claim to know if this will make any difference. But the momentum on this issue has shifted once already and there is no reason to think that it cannot be shifted back again. Maybe all it needs is a little MGoPush.

Hey not sure which one to buy, been loyal to Madden for years. Just downloaded the demo for NCAA 2011. Went pretty well I was Miami and won 14-3 on varsity over OSU.
Seems like the gameplay is pretty smooth, and graphics are better then i remember the old ones to be. I loved playing that 3-3-5 defense and smothering pryor too! Just curious as to what everyones opinion is. I know some of you have xbox. FWIW have not tried the demo to Madden.
