I don't take exception to that.
Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
I don't take exception to that.
I believe you mean Michigaine Stadium
That's just silly. You can't say, "So I know we just had a 250 million dollar expansion, but when's the next one coming?" Are we already taking the boxes for granted? Yeah, DB mentioned filling in the gaps, but that was just a "sometime in the future we'll think about this" thing, hold your horses there
Also, it's *except the Big House, not accept the Big House
Your lack of vision is what's silly. I'm about to fire up a Kickstarter campaign to get the Big House to one million (and one) seats. Come on, Brandon -- it's time to show the world the size of our balls.
If your balls are indeed that big, you may want to allow for seat widening in your million seat campaign. There's not room down there for much on gamedays.
No. The stadium should seat 300 million. Because every American should be a Michigan fan, godammit.
if we're going to do this, let's do it right
Have a seat for Yost.
Census Bureau had a statement that the population hit Pi
Now hold on -- we need some people to be tsio fans just for hatred's sake. Plus, the illiterate, unwashed masses of northeast Ohio are not welcome among Michigan fans (unless they are 4 or 5* athletes, of course.)
I crapped my pants laughing when I read this haha! GO BLUE!
I thought the same thing when I saw the Packers/49ers game. Not a big fan. They look "tacked on", which they are, and detracts from the look and feel of the rest of a classic stadium.
I've been wondering about this as well. There were a few threads about it awhile ago.
We could also dress Norfleet up in an Ewok costume.
not as much as I hated JarJar Binks and his Jamaican-accented tribe... why, George Lucas, why?
That's no moon! That's a space stadium!
"a few" targets, then you only put two. I deflated like your under-the-bed girlfriend.
I expected information, got blind speculation, became disappointed.
Hail,,,, HALE,,,, too Michigane!!!!!
...and best! Go Blew!!
the snack cake games. That would prob actually detract from the brand.
designed to try and hold more noise in. The luxury boxes do make it a little louder, but I'm all for making it a raucous stadium.
I think you meant RAWKOUS.
Build a platform for the bands to perform live during stoppages. Bands could rotate each week to keep it so fresh and so clean. I recommend Dio first followed by Boyz II Men.
Motown philly? Hellz yeah!
I have been to three concerts in my life. Two were Boyz II Men (the other was Toni Braxton, Kenny G.)
Fielding H Yost wanted the stadium reinforced so that it could someday hold up to 150,000. If it's good enough for Fielding H Yost, it's good enough for me.
...but let's worry about filling what we have right now on a game-in/game-out basis. I love Ann Arbor, Michigan...but we can only host so many people in this economy, with this location, etc.
With that said, until we get the Chicago Maroons back on the schedule...150,000 will not be in the question. A favorite rivalry game of mine.
I would like the noize at the RAWKING Big House pls:
Rule of thumb: if a thread has multiple adjacent non-period puncuations (be it a ??, ?!, !!, etc), it is going to be a bad thread. Unless it's a drinking thread. Then it will be awesome.
You like to start new threads. Amirite?
It'd be cool, but for the time-being, not sure it'd be economically feasible. I highly doubt we'd sell out the cupcake games, and that would not look good for TV and the brand. I guess it really all depends on the demand the school is getting for extra tickets, as well as Ann Arbor's capacity to hold this amount of people.
If there's an additional 20-30,000 Michigan fans out there that want to come to the games and will if they can get tickets, I'm all for an expansion. But I have zero desire to expand for the sake of expanding, not sell out every game, or even worse, open up thousands of new seats for opposing fans to come in and use. There's enough Ohio scum that comes in for the game. Why give them more seats?
The plan has been shelved. Brandon is bringing the non-revenue sports up to top notch facilities status over the next 10 years, which is awesome for the overall Michigan brand. Remember, for every $1 Brandon spends we pay $2. I'm in no hurry to see ticket prices climb even higher.
At the current rate of expansion, Crisler will become the southwest mezzanine of Michigan Stadium by 2020. Further, Facilities Services will then have its administrative offices completely inside Concession Stand 9 behind Section 42 and the south scoreboard will be situated just across the street from Busch's.
The won thang me wont' two no iz wen kan my weatch big huse frum spce!
You know, I wonder what a derpfish looks like . . .
I would assume that it looks something like a flounder, which is the derpiest of fishes.
looks like ass.
I hope that never happens to Michigan Stadium.
seats will stop clogging the aisles. /s
I think it would be nice to just get some color in there. The new luxery boxes are so bland with just the plain blue. They should add some yellow borders or logos or something to them. Also, it would be nice if they added some more lettering/color around the perimiter lower walls on the field level. I think that would really brighten up the stadium and give it a some color.
Sequins are a must.
For Coke Zero ads.. Duh!
When do the Michigan strawberry pop tarts come out?
they're already out
Speaking of the big house, I was leaving one of the University parking structures after dark one night this week, having been parked on upper level. Up there I had a straight sightline to the massive Black M on the backside of the north scoreboard. It was lit up but the edges of the dark blue scoreboard melted into the rest of the darkness, so the effect was a huge Block M that looked like it was floating in the sky. It was beautiful.
I'm guessing some of the rooms in South Quad/West Quad residence halls must have this same stunning view.
