Even worse, their band was also louder than ours.
I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
Even worse, their band was also louder than ours.
There has never been a senior class that has dealt with such adversity.
Really? These guys won a BCS bowl game, and have played in two more. They'll play in another this year. Let's keep some perspective here.
They have had a lot to deal with. Sure they have had good times and bad times which equates to the adversity they have had to deal with including a coaching change, NCAA investigation and the closing of Blimpies. That is adversity to me.
... during the Nebraska game, some of the Michigan "fans" around me bitched and moaned so much I wished they had sold their tickets to Nebraska folks.
I hope I am never in the situation where I can't use my OSU season tickets, but I have a hard time getting too upset at people who sell to the highest bidder.
Big time college football (this isn't just an UM issue) has made the conscious decision to maximize money at the expense of loyalty. Michigan sold lifetime Victors Club memberships that were supposed to guarantee people their seats a generation ago. But, as times changed, they just backed out of the deal and made the people who had bought the memberships pay PSDs.
So yeah, it sucks to see the stadium filled with OSU fans. But, if they are the more passionate ones willing to pay a higher price, I guess that's life. I just can't get on board with getting upset with someone who chooses a couple hundred bucks over some sort of one way loyalty.
...here's a Michigan fan that needs 2 tickets.
Not that I would want this to ever happen, but having The Game in October would help mitigate this problem.
Whoever downvoted this post can go smell some ass.
Yeah my dad kept hinting that I should sell our tix. There is no fucking way I'd sell tix to a game I can attend especially when it's The Game. A true fan changes plans (if possible) to be able to attend in my opinion
I live out of state and sell a fair number of my tickets. But I donated my 4 OSU seats to Mott Children's Hospital. The community relations office there gifts them to a patient and family. Was fairly easy to do. FYI.
Wouldn't miss this game for any reason. The people who sit near me by and large feel the same, even if the team hasn't won as much as we hoped.
Don't let any of them in our stadium.
I hate ohio state.
I was not here in 2009 but I have too many nauseous memories of Crisler being filled to the roof with green and being drowned out with Sparty cheers. I have a hard time believing the same thing happen in the Big House.
Say it ain't so!!!
But on a positive note, I'm living in MI again, so if anyone needs to get rid of tickets...hint hint.
I'm going to the game. Navy blue is all I got though, its not Scarlet so theres that.
I don't like when coaches try to tell students or fans what to do.
I like it when Saban did it, but right now Hoke does not exactly have that much behind him. Now, if we win then he will be able to rip the fan base and should do so if the crowd contains to many buckeyes.
No season ticket holders either directly in front of us, or in back. Have had some good luck for the most part, a particularly obnoxious Nebraska fan sitting behind me, but kudos to his wife for keeping him in check.....they left before the end of the game. Loved the guys who sat there for Indiana (thanks for the sunglasses if you read this blog) So OSU will be interesting in that we don't know who we will be surrounded by......but I promise that:
--I will be "rowdy" enough for a half dozen people half my age;
--we won't be selling our tickets for any amount of money
--we will not be deterred by whatever crappy weather AND
--we aren't leaving even if it gets ugly because that's when our team most needs to look up in the stands and see Michigan fans there.
6000 tickets on Stubhub. Ashamed that Michigan Stadium will probably be drenched in Scarlet again.
6000 tickets is just over 5% of the capacity of Michigan Stadium. Assuming that every, single ticket for sale on Stubhub is picked up by an Ohio fan, we will still be a far cry from "drenched in Scarlet".
That was my first trip in YEARS to The Big House and my first ohio game. Watching those damn fuckeyes around me gloat, wearing red and nuts was bad. Listening to them spell out the worst state ever still gives me indigestion.
I've heard of other schools penalizing a season ticket holder if someone from the other school sits in their seats. More or less, a near by season ticket holder turns in the offender. It's going to be ugly (red) that Saturday.
Our players fought too damn hard, record aside, for that crap to happen. Damn I hate ohio and their stupid, conceited, low-brow, unsportsmanlike fans.
I was at that game in Michigan's student section. Good times.
I remember seeing this picture right when the game came back on from the 1st or 2nd commercial break of the game. My dad and I were literally speechless at a loss of words. Michigan has never invaded ANY stadium like that (even Sparty or NW). If thefans are going to do that every time Ohio has a better record than us going into the game, the B1G might as well put The Game in C-bus every year. That was by far the lowest point in the history of Michigan football.
But we did turn Munn Ice Arena in Yost North back during our epic CCHA playoff run in 2010. That was fun to see.
I'm doing my part....Got offered $500 for my pair of tickets......F*ck no! I'll be there....I don't care if I was offered $1,000. That was pathetic in 2009.
How many of you guys were at that '09? If it was pathetic on TV just multiply that by 1,000,000 in person. It was sad...pathetic. That should NEVER happen...EVER.
Even when UM has a down year it should be like the 70's, 80's, 90's, where even if UM wasn't great the stadium was packed and it was all maize and blue.
i wonder how much this weeks game will play into this? I mean if UM comes out looking good against Iowa and wins and is 8-3 I would think the stadium will be packed.
If UM lays an egg and gets pounded 21-3 to iowa this farking stadium won't hardly have a UM fan in it.
I personally think this iowa game is huge
How many texts, calls, and emails I got from my friends from school that are planning on going up to Ann Arbor for this game. They can all smell blood, please do not let them embarrass us in the stands.
I hope the fans realize this will basically be the last good home game until 2015.
at The Game and regardless of how shitty the weather is or what the score is I will be staying until the end. I keep reminding my Ohio loving co-worker about '93 and '95 and daydream about another 313yd rushing game....
They don't care who you are, just as your willing to pay the $$$. I use to go to a lot of Michigan road game at Iowa and at Illinois, since they were not too far from my home in KS, but since 2010 investors have bought up a lot these tickets and now sell them for a ridiculous price. I would have went to the Iowa game but I'm not going to pay $200.00 per ticket for a decent seat. Just a few years ago I could get decent seats to Michigan road games for around $30 to $50.
it's $29 to go to Kinnick Stadium Saturday.
