I'll still take the burrito.
MSU tickets selling for the price of a burrito
get guacamole with the burrito?
If I didn't have plans, I would be there rooting for green in my maize. We need the help.
I will be rooting for Nebraska to lose, not moo u to win. moo u is irrelevent. No one cares about them. Not even the students and alumni. Their stadium can only hold 80K, this is almost half of ours and we will up the Big House every single "cotton pick'n saturday" as the Ufer would say.
I'd rather have a burrito than watch an offensive atrocity in the cold. That said, go Sparty.
Why should we care? Are we that infatuated with MSU that we need to know the ticket prices of their games?
I just find it interesting. MSU has a prety big fanbase, and this is their first home game against Nebraska as a big ten member.
Nebrasksa fans generally travel in large numbers to away games, so imagine where prices would be without that demand. I expect the Husker crowd to be quite noisy in the sparty double-wide stadium
an embarrassing scene.
I am in the military, and live in Omaha. Many of the Husker fans made the trip to LA for the UCLA game, as well as the Northwestern game a few weeks ago. I know they travel well, but from all the rumblings I have heard, I wouldn't expect an overwhelming crowd like we saw at NW in Chicago a few weeks ago.
I livedin Omaha last year and they do travel very well. Many of my friends' families made the trip to AA last November.
As an American and a consumer, I welcome information of this nature, that helps me decide how to spend my money. Because, you know, I could watch the MSU-Nebraska game live. Or I could eat a burrito. It's a difficult decision. Because there's football. But its Michigan State football. And then, there's a burrito.
Life throws some tough choices at you sometimes.
Dig in my friend.
There always has to be that guy.
Is there really? I haven't noticed it. FTR, I live in Oakland County. Is there a specific area they tend to be concentrated in? You always hear about the border states and then NYC/Chicago.
to change the city name to "Hollandez"
There are some Hispanic communities in West Michigan, but I wouldn't call them "huge." Statewide they are 4% of the population (compared to 16% nationwide).
in Mexican Town yesterday when I had lunch.
BTB, Chicken burrito with green salsa. Exactly $6. That, or sit out in the cold watching two fat kids have a pillow fight. Hmmm.
If it were an actual pillowfight between two actual fat kids. I'd totally pay 6 bucks to see that. Given that it's a metaphor for MSU football though, I'll take the burrito.
Come to think of it though, StraightDave still owes me a steak dinner, so I can save my money and still watch the metaphorical pillowfight.
There's gonna be lots of Nebraska fans in the stands I think. That said, go state (I will not induce vomiting).
Never in a million years would I have guessed it. Mark Dantonio is turing the tide on the rivalry to the point where he is laying in the weeds...
Or something like that.
According to Colbert the Market has spoken.
No one cares about Staee.
So a Staee grad would have to deliver, like, 3 pizzas to be able to gain admission?
They can keep that pizza.
Wow there are a lot of cheap tickets available. Nebraska is known for traveling well, it might end up being a pro-Nebraska crowd.
We beat them. Can't we stop obsessing now?
our chances to win the conference depends on them...so it's in our interest for them to have a couple fans at the game
My guess is there's a tremendous collective let-down in Sparty-land this year. Coming off last year, even with Cousins gone, the expectations were high. Losing to ND, OSU, Michigan and (for good measure) Iowa has taken all the wind out of their sails.
In a way, Michigan's loss to Nebraska last week did something similar, though not quite to the same degree. Alabama and ND could have been looked past, but losing to Nebraska and putting them in the driver's seat for the division hurt. The season is not over, and of course we're all looking forward to OSU ... but I think it's safe to say the enthusiasm would be a whole lot higher had we beat Nebraska last week.
Just human nature ... dealing with unmet expectations is not always a joy ride.
"The team, the team, the team. No, not our team. That one other team. Boy, do I hate them."
we just need Nebraska to lose a game or even, 2. There are other games left on their schedule besides @MSU. Now a loss by Nebraska tomorrow would be nice, but Michigan's whole season does NOT depend on it. I wouldn't be unhappy with a Spartan victory, but then again, I wouldn't be too upset to see Nebraska pile it on either. A very mediocre season for Sparty would be a welcome thing around here.
They could possibly lose to Penn State, but I think MSU has a much better chance.
It is pretty unlikely for them to lose to Minnesota or Iowa.
I think a loss to Iowa is unlikely but they DO hate each other and, although it's a fairly new rivalry, it's very heated.
I moved out to Iowa for a job 2 years ago & was really surprised how much animosity there is between the two schools.
But on the other hand, last year you could have gotten two tickets for the price of one and a five dollar footlong from Subway...let's not worry about the fact that was for a bad out of conference game...
The real question is will there be more people at the CMU-WMU game then the MSU- Nebraska. Answer= No.
One of these looks great from afar, definitely worth your time and investment, especially if you are drunk. Yet, once you actually experience it first hand, it falls apart while making a mess, and leaves you feeling sick to your stomach and proclaiming that you'll never do THAT again.
And then there's the burrito.
Burrito > shits I get eating from eating burrito > state game
That place is pretty much a non drive through taco bell.
is way, way more than $6. Kind of approachinmg $10 territory, but hey, gotta save the carbs for tortilla chips & yeah, I would rather spend $10, eat my bowl & chips and then sleep > going to a game @ MSU!
Could the shootings on I-96 have an effect ???
I had a Qdoba steak queso for lunch today. No way in hell sparty tickets are worth that. Wait, then again, with a coke it was almost twice what the tickets cost, so nevermind. Totally unfair comparison.
Not only could you get in for the price of a burrito but you'd have access to all those wrappers floating about the stadium.
There was just a Michigan State gear ad on the left side of my MGoBlog. Who on this blog wants to buy Michigan State stuff?
The ads on this page are usually pretty viewer specific..? So ethier you or someone who uses your computer is a sparty in disguise.
i actually hope people go to the game this saturday, the MSU team will need all the help they can get to beat Nebraska and help us get to the rose bowl
The nice thing about living in North Carolina is, you never encounter STAEE fans. In my 20 years of fandom, I've had words with one. ONE. Went to school with an Ohio fan, but he wasn't really in my clique. He was from the wrong side of the tracks per se. Imagine that.
I actually bought a burrito that was more expensive than that today, and I'm basically poor, so there's that.
That being said, GO MICHIGAN STATE BURRITOS! YEAH!
Just imagine if Michigan State didn't beat Wisconsin last week. I'm sure no one would believe in the team and tickets would have the same value as things on the Value Menu at Taco Bell. Give me the burrito.
"For the meager price of a burrito, you can experience the comraderie of Juggalo Nation...."
But whose going to bring the Faygo?
If they win, fine...but I'm NOT openly rooting for them. Never happen.
Are they boycotting so their team won't pull the upset and help Michigan out?
