Long story short, I might be in the opposite position of most people who post ticket questions on the board. Come Saturday, there is a definite possibility that I'll have two surplus tickets for this Saturday's game vs. ND under the lights...but I won't know for certain until Saturday morning/afternoon. Thus, stubhub or "legitimate" ticket brokers are not an option for me. I've sold spare tickets the day of the game before, but it's typically to a scalper because it's a random game vs. a MAC/Indiana/Minnesota type team and I'm more interested in getting to tailgating, brats, and Bell's Two-Hearted rather than trying to make an extra $10-20. Needless to say, Saturday will be a historic game and will be a very different situation. I'd be looking to cut out the middleman so I would get the maximum return for my tickets while simultaneously hooking up two M fans. They'd be primo seats: on the M sideline, section 24 or 25 ( somewhere between the two 40 yard lines, I forget off the top of my head), and a row somewhere in the 40s. In retrospect, this isn't a very short post at all, but the question remains: where is the best spot (EDIT: PHYSICAL/GEOGRAPHICAL location in or around A2) to find people (read: M fans milling about) in need of tickets for Saturday's game? Like I said, I'd really prefer to sell these tickets to good people (again, read: M fans) and not to someone who will turn around and sell them again, especially since I'll be sitting next to whoever ultimately occupies those seats.
best place to SELL tickets for ND game on Saturday
what time would you know by..i would probably buy these if i had a decent heads up
ok i re-read the post and located the answer to my question, ha. anyways shoot me an email @ 'zbrown2012 @ hotmail dot com' and we can discuss further
Don't like spam? Or are you the same commenter that always tells me to go to hotrichplayfriends.com?
Ideally I'd know already...but realistically I'll know by maybe 1:30-2pm on Saturday. If I find out sooner, I'll update my post.
Keep in mind folks that ticket prices have been dropping the last few days. I was able to get two off craigslist last night for face, I know I was lucky but I have a feeling a lot of people who are looking for 200+ a ticket are going to be disappointed.
I have 2 tickets for sale, Section 13, Row 81, 2 seats together. I'd put them on the spreadsheet but it's probably too late for that. I'm willing to use stubhub but I'd rather give fellow mgobloggers first dibs. $200 each.
/not sure if threadjack
I'd buy those 2 tickets for 200 a pop
Sorry for the threadjack, didn't mean any harm... UofMfootball411, email me at samsoccer6 (at) gmail (dot) com. I'm driving in from Chicago and could meet you tomorrow night or just about anytime Saturday.
No, you're fine. As the ND game approaches, there are going to be a shit ton of posts like this, which is, honestly for the best. Let's sell our tickets to Michigan people, regardless of what manner we advertise our tickets.
Huge fan, in town from Houston. I passed on 2 4-packs through my aunt in the Victor's Club. I bought a house earlier than expected, so the budget was a little tight then--too much to buy those and airfare for my wife and me. I just found out last week I was going to Pittsburgh for work, so when I was done with that, I drove over and I'm in Dearborn Heights right now. I have a ton of family I'm visiting, and I am going to go to the game.
I'd love to buy 2 tickets from someone. Please email me at: Josh (dot) Plumaj (at) gmail (dot) com
Also, I've never been, so any tips on pre-game activities would be much appreciated! Bars, food, tailgates, etc, anything.
I was trying to make a joke, no worries. I updated the above post too - I'm not exactly looking to sell these over the board, I'm more interested about a spot where there might be lots of people in need of tickets. Come to think of it, somewhere around the gameday set might be a good spot to start...
I emailed you waiting for a response my friend
I would say post on Craigslist when you find out. there will be a lot of people tailgating with out tix and I am sure someone would just come meet you at your tailgate to get them. worked well for me at the msu game last year.
I may be looking to sell 1 or 2 as well if anyone is interested.
A friend of mine(huge M fan and alum) made a last minute decision to come into town and is looking for a single.
Take General for a walk. Hi Jess.
i need 2, but for what price and where @
GoBlueFanSCP at aol dot com. As you can tell I bleed Maize and Blue.
Looking to sell a pair of row 25 seats for 200 per ticket. Parents unfortunately couldnt make it for the weekend, email me if interested (email@example.com).
specifying the section would be helpful
I'm also selling my tickets for the game this weekend. You can have them for the very low price of $600 each. Keep in mind that the only reason I'm doing this is to help fellow MGoBloggers out, I'm not interested in making a profit.
First come, first serve.
$600 each?!? These must be ridiculously good seats...
We're talking validated student seats here. Row 87. I just wanted to give MGoBloggers first shot at them, otherwise I'm taking them to the general public. Keep in mind, there is no profit motive here whatsoever.
This guy seems legit.
I'll give you $750 each, and not a penny less. Then you can give it to the orphans.
on the 50. No, not just on the 50..LITERALLY ON...the 50
I just graduated from UM and am a student at the Wayne State Med. School. I'm going back to A2 tomorrow (Saturday) to tailgate with some friends and hopefully find a ticket. I understand the historic significane of this game and the fact that it's against a hated rival so I won't complain about the high prices. But I am in the market for a ticket and will be combing the streets of Ann Arbor in a desperate search for reasonably-priced tickets just before the game.
tl;dr version: Find the kid wearing a blue blazer, maize and blue striped tie and seersucker shorts who would love the chance to put some money in a UM fan's pocket and get into the stadium.
Going to get a student ticket to sit with a friend instead. Sec 2, Row 47 (ND Sideline, but around the 35-40 yd lines--can't beat the view). I've put up some CL ads but would be happy to sell to an MGoLurker instead.
Seeking cash and best offer (I've had one for $200 already). I'm coming in from California so I'll be able to meet either late tomorrow night or Saturday anytime morning/afternoon.
PLEASE EMAIL ME AT tompkins.sean@gmail !!!!!
-I'm am driving up to Ann Arbor today from Iowa City. I am a UofM alum and I'm going back for my first game. I am taking my girlfriend with me who has NEVER been to a Michigan game.
-I am desperate for tickets so please email me back and I we can exchange phone numbers and talk prices!!! PLEASE!!!
Check out facebook, last night I got two tix in row ~28 of student section for $150 each
What is the policy for non-students buying student section tickets? I've always thought it was a no go.
If you buy a student ticket and don't have an MCard you can take the ticket to the ticket office on state street (at least that's where it used to be) and get it 'validated' for like $40 and then you can use it.
If anyone is around the stadium tomorrow; will be at Pioneer as soon as they open. Looking for 3. Willing to pay $185.

firstname.lastname@example.org and we can make it happen.
