South Carolina resident here. I would like to get some feedback on game day atmosphere for "crappy" home games.
Here is un-important backstory: I've been a die-hard Michigan follower since '91, after watching Desmond strike the pose. I'm 24. Since my parents were are NOT Michigan fans, they didn't necessarily want to drive their child 12 hours to take me to the Big House (Yes, my parents are both fart sniffing nut-jockeys. Screw you Mom and Dad). I didn't attend my first game until 2006 (Ball State). Since then, I go annually. (Ohio State 2007, Utah 2008 and Penn State 2009).
Here is my dilemma: I want to go to the Michigan State game but if I choose Bowling Green instead, I can catch a game at Comerica (vs. Twins) the day before, PLUS get much better seats at a much cheaper price for the Michigan game. Is the atmosphere as much fun for less important games such as this?
I've had the pleasure of attending 3 straight losses and would be nice to go to a game which is basically a guaranteed win. Try to remember that I only make it to MI once a year. With all that said, if YOU were a Michigan and Detroit fan living in SC, what would YOU do? Thanks in advance.
