Question re student seating at Michigan Stadium
As long as you're not trying to sit in the first 25-30 rows you shouldn't have a problem.
Act like you've been there before. I know it's been since 2003 (my freshman year) but it's not necessary, unless a BCS national championship were on the line
You MUST go into the section on your ticket but after that it is pretty relaxed in terms of where you actually sit. As long as you don't try and move across like 4 sections a half hour before game time you should be fine. Once the student section fills up a bit you can essentially move wherever there is room
From my experience you must go through your actual section number. From there you can easily go anywhere you want. The only place I have ever seen an usher check seat number is in the first row in the corner.
SITTING in the student section is not going to happen. It's SRO. Bring comfy shoes and take preventative doses of Advil if you have bad knees, etc.
Haha well I am young enough that standing is not an issue for me. I actually prefer it and that won't be a problem but yes I definitely will be wearing some comfortable shoes. It's a must when going to games or concerts
Just realized that the tickets are in the same section, just different rows and seats. Sounds like we should be good then. Was just hoping that we wouldn't run into any big problems
There are some asshole students who will show up late and try to move you sometimes and say dumbshit like we paid for these seats even though everyone in the student section payed the exact same about but generally you should be good, i haven't sat in my official seats once this year. Also just as an fyi based off tonight while working at zingermans I think the entire state of nebraska is here, it might be an ugly and noticable amount of red tomorrow, i'm officially worried.
Yes, they are everywhere in AA and it is well documented that Nebraska fans travel. Even so, with a max of say-20,000 of them, that leavs 90,000 of us. I dont think it's a problem.
Also, most of them have never been to AA, and the first place you go when visiting is Zingermans.
at the Hockey game. That sort of surprised me because it was OSU, so not the cheapest/easiest ticket to grab.
I'm one of those asshole students. I've got front row upper section grouped with my graduate cohorts and people always try to take the seats. Call me an asshole but I'm keeping my front row view.
Show up on time then, although I bet you love milking your preferential treatment don't you? It should be first come first serve.
We've been here longer, you little bastard. /s
But seriously you can't complain about somebody kicking you out of their seats. You have an opportunity to get tickets with your friends when you order them. Large groups have every right to preserve their ability to stay together when they went to the trouble of doing that, even if you think you get their seats because you showed up 5 minutes earlier.
How much was the validation?
Need to get one validated for my sister before next week..
Where do you validate tickets?
You can get them validated at the stadium up to two hours before game time at the student will call. Also you can get them validated at the athletic ticket office or union ticket office. See link below
The student section would like to formally request that you rest your vocal chords tonight in preparation for tomorrow. If you aren't loud tomorrow and sit anywhere near me, expect constant snarky comments about your fanhood until you you're yelling every play. Having spent last weekend at the Penn St./Nebraska game (awkwardly), I can attest to crowd noise affecting Martinez, as the only time the stadium got to full volume, he was visibly flustered. This is a huge game, and I'm personally going to make sure the crowd is a factor tomorrow.
The rest of the stadium would like to request that the student section show up prior to kickoff. The intimidation factor on the opposing team begins as they come out of the tunnel. Vast areas of empty seats in the Northwest corner of the Big House adds little to the impact that the Big House is capable of.
Big game, let's all do our part.
Just make sure you and your friend have the other person's seat written down and say you will definitely meet there. You probably won't have cell phone service which makes these situations a bit difficult to find one another. I've definitely been the guy who went into another section with the intentions of going to find my friends in another section, only to be lost in the crowd sitting by myself for a quarter -- which really isn't too bad if you're drunk and sociable.
Dumb question, but what section number/s is the student section? I got my tickets for next week's game and am in section 9...I was thinking that was the opposite corner, but I may be wrong.
Show up anytime before second quarter and you can sit anywhere you want in the student section.
