to play football, not to play trumpet
So the Athletic Department will now officially endorse ticket scalping through Stubhub, as long as they get a cut.
I've never used Stubhub, but from what I've read it's usually expensive and Stubhub takes a huge cut (which forces prices even higher). The part that makes me most nervous is this:
Throughout the 2011-12 Wolverine athletic season, StubHub marketing assets will be highly visible across football, basketball and hockey properties for the University. StubHub will host a football hospitality event for the historic, first-ever night game at Michigan Stadium, which is Sept. 10 against Notre Dame. Additionally, StubHub will be featured courtside, on dasher board signs, and via radio promotions. The partnership will round out with MGoBlue.com strategic placements and social media elements.
It's just one step closer to advertising inside Michigan Stadium. And if the Stubhub logo appears on the face of the (probably collectors items) Notre Dame/Nebraska/Ohio State tickets, there will probably be a riot toward Dave Brandon's office.
Who'd'a thunk it? Read the crew list:
Background info: I live in Ohio just east of columbus, and am a very proud Michigan.
I was on my way to pick up my wife from school today and next to me was a middle aged couple in a van that kept honking. So I turned my head to look at them and they were waving an osu hat at me while flipping me off (they must have noticed the 3 michigan hats in my back window). So as we were approaching a red light the couple must have not realized it because as i was slowing down they were mainting there speed (about 50 mph) and ran into the back of a cop car. I didn't stay to see what happened because I was already late to get my wife. Just thought I'd share this experience with all mgousers. It just goes to show how big of idiots (most) osu fans are.
A friend of mine posted a status on facebook last night arund 10:30 that she had just gotten done running at the arb. I was under the impression that the Arb was closed after sunset. I was wondering if this was just suggested or if there was any chance of actually getting in trouble by doing this. Its going to be so hot this week and as weird as it sounds I am unable to drink anything when I run so I was intrigued by this. If anybody has done this do you suggest doing it or is it better to stay away after sunset?
Yes, I know this is a double post, kinda. I just wanted to let the powers that be know that I actually was infected by a virus that I speculate may have been from MGoBlog, as it popped up as soon as I visited the site and locked down my PC. I've seen posts on this topic, and my antivirus has picked up threats in the past.
Today, somehow, it got past my McAfee. It popped up a fake antimalware program. I'm in IT, so I've seen similar things. Luckily, I was able to establish it as 'conhost.exe'. It was a file located in the App Data folder in my Docs and Settings user folder. I was able to log in as another technician in safe mode and delete my user folder. I'm logged in as myself now and everything seems fine. I'm running MBAM right now to see if anything is left over. Just a heads up. I'm sure you guys are looking into it.
So I came back to check this thread, and wouldn't you know it, the damn thing hits me again. Stupid me for thinking it was an isolated incident. I guess I'm the clinical definition of crazy. I'm posting this in Safe Mode with Networking. I'm not going to revisit this site from my PC again for a few weeks, to give you guys a chance to fix this stuff. We don't have access to Internet Options on my work PC, as they think we will bypass the proxy, so I cannot ratchet up my security settings to adjust for this.
So MGoBlog, goodbye for now. If fate is on our side, I will be back some day. Probably around when fall practice starts...
I know we have been having past issues with malware the past few days but per Brian's last post I thought we had a clean chit and no files were infected.
Today I got a popup saying that the website is infected with a Trojan. Anyone else had this experience today?
