Couldn't these tickets just be the left-over Iowa allotment that wasn't bought up by Hawkeye fans? This happens at Michigan occasionally too....the visiting team's fans don't travel well enough so there is a couple hundred tickets that are sent back to the hosting AD a couple days before kick-off and are dumped onto the open market to get rid of them.
I would bet this game ends up sold out.
...the MSU ticket office often has a small number of tickets that they release only a couple days kickoff that were committed to promotions that did not use their full allotment. It's not an issue of fan support - these seats were not previously available for purchase.
there has to be more than a couple hundred, or why would they be all over the radio?
Whatever. I plan on tuning in drunk around 8:30 to see a vein popped out on Dantonio's huge Frankenhead. And I will snicker, knowing that Sparty is getting tailpiped.
You could pay upwards of $100 for two tickets, parking and stale-ass popcorn or you could go to the iTunes store and buy the entire MSU rap music album (which will fill Spartan Stadium) for a mere $10. Either way, it doesn't sound like a lot of fun to me.
Even little brother isn't that dumb...go for the $10 option. If little brother is that dumb, slap the shit out of momma.
MSU is a Men's basketball school, plain and simple. The Breslin will be sold out for exhibition games and even Midnight Madness. Football just isn't that big of a draw for some reason. I truly believe that MSU could win the Big 10 football title for a few years in a row and things still wouldn't change.
Let's keep in mind that Spartan Stadium holds 72,000, while the Breslin Center holds 14,000. It's kind of an apples/oranges thing to compare them.
Sparty owns the big ten. Already. Why go?
But why are all of Bouje's posts getting meganegged? I mean some of them probably should, but some of them actually make decent points.
It doesn't matter I'm bouje therefore my posts get negged. People see the name and say "hey let's neg" and have at it. It's why I don't post anymore because no matter how intelligent my posts I always get attacked and called an idiot.
Perhaps if you were less insulting, you'd get negged less.
Are you one of those "last word freaks"?
I was kind of curious why this thread had so many posts.
I missed the memo that it was a negbouje.
Dear Wolverine fans,
Just want to remind you to order your Rich Rod Hope Shirt before they are all sold out. There are only about 300 printed and have been received rave reviews not just here in New York but across the country. Show your support for this young team coming down the home stretch against the rest of the Big Ten.
The shirts are printed on American Apparel tees, available in Navy and Grey, sizes S - XL (sizes are mens, but women don't worry - the small fits all females). I would love the support of all my fellow Wolverine alumni and friends. They also make great gifts for the family members and feel free to forward along to others. The shirts can be purchased

Slay me this renegade!
MAKE IT STOP!
Basically, we, as UM fans, are spoiled; maybe it would be more accurate to say that it is us who do the spoiling. We buy 110,000 tickets for teams like EMU. I can think of maybe five or six places in the country who support their teams like UM fans do, and most of them are in the SEC or Big 12.
I'm not surprised that MSU isn't selling out this game. For example, the USF/Cincy game didn't sell out, and USF has the Tampa/St Pete/Clearwater traingle, plus the Bradenton/Sarasota area to draw from. MSU only has Lansing and Jackson that close, with the Greater Detroit area further away, and has historically had tickets avaiable for a lot of big games regardless of the economy.
Basically, there just aren't as many MSU fans as there are UM fans. That's why MSU started the myth of the Walmart Wolverine; they are jealous of the large number of fans that support UM.
Keep in mind that until Dantonio showed up, the past 10+ years have been dominated by mediocrity sprinkled with the occasional bowl game. Fans will show up if the product is worth it on a consistent basis. Look at UM's troubles filing Crisler - fans don't want to invest in season tickets if the team is not going to be competitive against good teams. It's not much fun to watch your team get manhandled by your closest rivals every year.
I'd love to go to the game. Does anyone know where I
could find an Iowa sweatshirt on short notice?
