I guess I was hoping that $125 would get me a better seat than upper level!
Cowboys Classic (Michigan-Alabama) Seating Chart
$1000 maybe just on strippers and blow! All kidding aside, you guys don't think when it gets closer to gameday we won't be able to snag those tickets for less?
Just my opinion, no. Maybe if you're lucky, but this is Michigan and Alabama - two of the biggest and most rabid fanbases in the country. Both will be preseason top 10. Bama just won the title. Not to mention this was announced over a year ago, not a month prior like a bowl game.
To me, spending $125 instead of a potential $75 is worth not stressing about flying out without a ticket and ending up paying $300 at the game.
You gotta splurge. These games wont happen that often for us. 285 all day long.. Round trip airfare from dtw 430..room 4 blocks away 58 a night.. Booze food for 3 days 400... Im all in baby!
Dallas.. We will finally reveal ourselves to the jedi!
I know!... Gonna have to think about this one for a minute!!
With as much as tickets are a bunch of my friends and family will be going to Cowboys Stadium to tailgate and watch the game outside. They have huge monitors outside the stadium for all to watch. My uncle will be there with his HUGE BBQ pitt. All Michigan fans on the MGOBLOG board will be welcome to come! Look for the tall and large Michigan flag. All we ask is for a small donation for food and such. There will be a ton of Alabama fans but I hope we have a good turn out. GO BLUE! Yes these TEXAS folk will be rooting for the Maize and BLUE!
Not to be an ass, but yours won't be the only one with a big Michigan flag I imagine. I suggest flying another flag as well or having some other way of describing it so we can more easily find it. Thanks for the invitation though.
Understandible, when the game gets closer I'll have better details. Good eye.
Jerry gona get his money!
Wow, that's a lot of 285 dollar seats to sell.
Sorry for thread jacking but can someone please start a thread with this link? I find it very hard to believe that one of our coaches would publically rag on current players (BWC, Denard) like this asshat is claiming... Any idea who the coach could be?
If it's on the internet it must be true!
If this is true, it is extremely interesting. However, the likelihood that it is true is extremely slim, as I doubt any of our coaches would be dumb enough to share that much information, especially the negative stuff about recruits. If word got out about that, HS coaches might have an issue with the callousness. Right, Mark?
right, a coach at a high profile institution is going to spill everything he's thinking to a complete stranger, wearing their main rivals colors. He will go on to trash just about everything about the current team without mentioning any positives. Also: in the same breath he will mention that the coaches don't pay attention or know the "star ratings" of any players then refer to them on specific recruits for the rest of the conversation. this all seems very likely.
Hey, I've got a hot deal on this bridge in New York, you interested?
Did I not say "I find it hard to believe"? I never thought it was true and don't think it is. I posted it because I thought people would like to see states new low... they really think that people would believe a Michigan coach would tell a state slap that they think Denard/BWC can't play?
The only problem with this guy's story is that he was sitting next to a UM fan, not coach.
That's my thought process too. There are any number of guys on here that would know ALL of that information. It literally looks like it was plucked from this site.
Its like he recorded him. How do you remember that much info in a 40 minute flight. also, doesnt sound like a coach. maybe, he was riding with Phil the hater.
Are any of our coaches in Chicago recruiting today. Hoke and Funk are traveling back from seattle.
he eventually (on p 6) claims it was jerry montgomery. (he also claims he sat down immediately when he got off the plane and voice recorded everything he could remember.)
Thanks, I couldnt read thru that board. The supposed coach seem to be really in tune offensively.
Remember - this game is being played between two groups of scholar athletes. We CAN NOT pay them for playing football for these fine institutions, as that would violate the sanctity of the sport and would be an unsustainable business model considering that upper-bowl tickets ONLY go for $125/person.
Blame the economy.

Those are really good for $50. Too bad I'm graduating this year. Maybe I can get somebody to buy one of my behalf...
Man I'm definitely rethinking buying GA tickets. The only good thing about having this in Jerryworld is a lot of students won't be going so getting their tickets should be easy
Is there anyone with a decent number of points that would let me buy 2 $175 tickets from them? I'm pretty certain they will be all gone by the time it goes public and I was hoping to get decent seats for this one.
When they sell tickets to an event like this (requiring points, away venue), you often have to show an ID to pickup the tickets in the city of the event. Keep this in mind if you're going to buy them from someone, it may not work out.
His thing about grades with Burbridge and Pittman is a 100% lie, scUM does not have elevated standards for athletes like Northwestern, Stanford, or Notre Lame. If Burbridge qualifies at MSU he would have qualified at scUM.

Dumb ass state fans
That's awesome. And I won't be in the nose-bleeds like the Sugar Bowl.
For those wondering about the popularity of this ticket: while not significant to the whole, we have a group of 20 people going including people who generally refuse to travel. This was a unique enough event to warrant the cost. Just putting out there to those weighing the cost/benefit of waiting on stubhub.
