Got the email that season tix are available to be renewed online which I just completed.
I wasn't offered any additional Michigan games (no road games at all) - did anyone have to the option of additional and/or road games?
The Victors Club, which by and large operates with a really admirable level of customer service and efficiency, has done a terrible job with keeping an accurate tally on Victors Club points.
I'm at a level where a lot of people might be enviable, then they'd find out how miserably far I am from hoping to get a decent parking space on football game days.
Still I am determined to keep my count correct. Anybody have a number/web address/contact info for Victors Club points details and corrections?
I'm sure you have a 'director of development' person assigned to you. Just give them a call. The two different ones that have been asssigned to me over the years have been great and working through those types of problems.
And, yes, getting high priority parking (blue or champions) is a bitch. I don't know how many points you need, but it's over 700 and maybe over 800.
Away game tickets are being offered first to season ticket holders with 400 or more priority points. If games are available after the deadline, they will be offered in early May to the next group of ticket holders based on point total.
Sucks as I only have somewhere around 50...
With all our big games being on the road, I wasn't expecting ND, MSU or OSU but I would have thought I would have been offered Rutgers and Northwestern.
Is being an alum worth 400 on its own yet?
The road game prices have gone up astronomically!
Ohio is charging $150 per ticket!
Notre Dame is $110.
Rutgers is $100, WTF? $100? For Rutgers?
These have gone up dramatically since the last road game in Ohio and ND.
That's at least a third of what they will be selling for on Stubhub. Especially Notre Dame. Rutgers is surprising though!
Rutgers is much cheaper on stub hub
Mistype on my part, I know though that Ohio State and Notre Dame will be atleast a couple hundred a ticket...
Maybe, remember these are endzone tickets..so, Notre Dame will probably garner about $300. But Ohio can depend greatly on the records of the teams. I've seen Ohio sell for less than $150 if one or both of the teams are bad.
I have no idea what Rutgers will fetch, but it is Yom Kippur, and that's gotta hurt the sales, especially in the northeast.
Funny story about that happening in Ann Arbor.
Was walking up from my tailgate before the Ohio game last fall and I encountered a couple of older alums trying to sell their two tickets "so we can go to the bar". Their seats were in Section 1 and they predicted a Michigan loss by 40.
Asking price: $45 per
Some truth to your statement and I saw a young father/son pick up the seats and enjoy a great game.
I can get you all the Slippery Rock v Mercyhurst tix you want.
Hey I plan on going. Bye week so there's nothing much else going on....
You're only going to have your choice of about 70,000 unsold tickets for that one.
for U of M, going to Michigan Stadium for that Slippery Rock game might have a little "retro" feel to it. Maybe a little late 60's/early 70's retro, even:
---plenty of empty seats/room to move around
---(maybe) no "rawk music"
---Bob Ufer on the transistor radio (WTKA 1050 always does a rebroadcast of a Ufer Classic on Saturdays of bye weeks).
Is it possible, with the relatively relaxed settings that day, that maybe we'll even detect the odor of a certain smoking material that was openly passed around in the stands back then?
4 of my seats. It is sad that friends told me they don't want to renew.
Just tell DB I said it's cool.
