Questions for Umass Game - Victor's Walk and Attendence
I don't know about the Victor's walk, but I know there won't be any empty seats. Its the Big House and the best team in the world, there will always be a packed house every Saturday in AA.
2 to 2 1/2 hours before the game. They walk past Crisler to get to the locker room. If you have younger kids you may want to get a spot on the steps to the entrance so they can see unless your in front of the line.
Ticket prices on Ebay have skyrocketed so I expect it to be a full house no matter what. The last two years have been painful and the fan base is jacked to see this team take off.

thanks a ton guys - get ready for the "nard dog"
The "This Week in Michigan Football" e-mail they sent out yesterday says the Victor's Walk will begin around 10 am near the U-M Department of Public Safety Buildilng in the Blue Lot.
This football parking map shows the location of the Blue Lot.
Just so there is no confusion where they will be according to the map that is posted by @Raoul. The release said the Blue lot but that map is a little misleading. If you look at the map and find the words "Gate 1" and then follow due east to the outer road of the lot. That is where the team gets dropped off. When you arrive in the area before 10a just look for the people lined up like they are waiting for a parade.
Thanks for clarifying that, jc. That map would have been more useful if it indicated the location of the Dept. of Public Safety building. That building is the one located due east of Crisler across Kipke Dr.
every seat will not be filled but attendance will be higher than what is represented like every game. it is yom kippur so a lot of jews wont be there.
Midway through the first quarter, the vast majority of seats should be filled. This is the kind of game where you will see a ton of kids with dads and moms. Although it's an important and not-to-be-overlooked game, between Yom Kippur and the bigger games down the road, some will opt to sell/give their tix away. Butts will be in the seats, but they may be "future wolverines".
I went to the DSU game last year and there were a lot of seats available, this year there will be much less empty seats as the team is on fireeeee.
Also, it's not fall break weekend.
