"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
Has anyone heard of any ticket deals for this weekends game against Minnesota? I would imagine that given the direction of things at the moment, there should be plenty of tickets available on the secondary market, but thought I'd see if anyone had heard of anything else.
I've made the decision to lean into it this year. I guess my love of Michigan Football withstands numerous punches to the "Soul Dong"
To add to the ever-increasing ways UM is scrambling to sell tickets, I (and I assume other current members of the alumni assoc) just got an email offer for 3 tix for $150 ("a $75 savings!") for Miami (NTM), Utah and Maryland.
That's not that unusual (or that great a deal, considering StubHub exists), as UM clearly is having trouble selling tix for those mediocre games, but in addition to those tix, "you will be guaranteed an opportunity to purchase (2) tickets to next season's home game against either Michigan State or Ohio State."
Considering those games will easily sell out without any promotions, that's quite a kicker.
Offer ends Thursday for those interested.
I haven't seen this posted yet but thought it was an interesting option for M multi-sports fans. MGoblue.com is offering a "Home Opener Pack" which consists of tickets to M's first home football, basketball, and hockey games for $75. I'm not much of a basketball or hockey fan, otherwise this seems like a pretty good deal. Link.

As much as we grumble on and on about the athletic department, we all know we will still support this Michigan football team and hope to see a solid product this season. With that being said, who ordered ticket packs today?
- What package did you pick and what games will you be attending?
- Where did they seat you?
For me, I chose the Go Blue Ticket Pack with Penn State and Miami (OH) already given to you. My third game I decided on Maryland over homecoming vs Indiana. My reasoning was I'd like to see Maryland in their first year in the B1G.
Miami (OH) - Section 25, row 74
PSU - Section 28, row 75
Maryland - Section 44, row 18.
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@example.com) 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)
