"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
I live on the west side of Michigan and no one here has gotten theirs either.
you still haven't gotten yours yet?
I live in Grand Rapids and I got mine yesterday. Row A. Nice
and I live in GR. Though it could be that I'm a freshman.
Gotten our tickets already. He's a freshman, but he got his on on Friday (the same day as me).
Now I'm nervous.
No reason to be nervous. I'm not a freshman and mine haven't arrived to GR yet either. If you're registered for classes and you've ordered the tickets, they'll be there. Doesn't make waiting any easier, though.
I got mine today.
I think everyone has. you have to be registered for classes to have receieved them. if you aren't, they keep them at the ticket office and you have to bring proof of registration.
Although, I wonder if your took longer because of the distance?
Edit - oops. I stand corrected. Everyone I know has gotten theirs already. Sorry.
As a Ph.D. student, we sometimes forget to register for classes until the last day, since our "courses" never fill up. One of my fellow PhD classmates was getting worried because they still hadn't received their tickets.
They have now registered for classes, I'm guessing that they will still receive them in the mail? Does anyone know exactly how that works? Do you just have to be registered by the time they finish mailing the last sets of tickets? Or do you have to go pick them up if you aren't registered at the time that they would have initially mailed them?
I was just wondering the same thing about the ticket package I purchased through the Alumni Association. WTF is going on??
Nebraska/WMU was sent out Monday, ND/SDSU will be sent out next monday, and OSU I would presume the following week... Just spoke with the Alumni Association.
I'm in the WMU/Nebraska group and don't have them yet. They better be in my mailbox when I get home this evening or I'm going to . . . I'm going to . . . wait until tomorrow.
Thanks for calling the AA and updating us all. Much appreciated.
I just recieved my WMU/Nebraska tickets yesterday in the mail, so they should be coming soon. I live in Houston, TX.
Everyone I have talked to has also received theirs. I'm sure yours are just in the mail.
My mailman hordes my mail and delivers everything 2-3 days later than everyone else, so I'll tell you on Monday if you should be worried.
Is your mailman Newman?
Most people I know have already received their student tickets, but if you don't have anything a week before the season starts, I'd go talk to the ticket office.
From AZ, got them Monday.
I ALREADY POSTED ABOUT THIS LAST WEEK YA DINGUS.
I got mine yesterday and I'm from saginaw so I would imagine yours will show up in a day or 2
Got them two days ago. They're huge
I received mine in SE Michigan two days ago, my mail people are usually really slow for some reason too. A friend of mine in the next city over got his the day before me. Hope it works out for you but I wouldn't be too concerned just yet
i was just checkng the mail get it checking the male
My son's student tickets arrive earlier this week (in the Cleveland area). I agree they are huge -- they are the same size as the season tickets, which never was the case before.
We were shut out of Alumni Assn tickets this year, but did get some 4 packs from the Athletic Department. Those arrived earlier than the student tickets -- they arrived during the last week of July while we were on vacation. Thank god no one stole them.
On the tickets there something I can't decipher. Either it's a big letter "I" or else it's a Roman Numeral "one". Assume its the latter in recognition of the first ever night game at the Big House. Anyone have insight?
I live in West Michigan and I JUST got mine today. I think they mail them out in waves, which is why some people I know got them almost a week ago and I didn't get them until today. Add in the fact you're in El Paso and I wouldn't start worrying for another week.
and just got them yesterday which is SO GREAT because I am already in AA enjoying welcome month ....
I cannot wait to actually have them in my hands
I'm a senior in high school and hopefully I'll be at Michigan next year. How much do student tickets cost?
Last year they were 200 but we only had 7 home games and we didn't have ND, OSU, or Nebraska. I'd say they will be around 240 or 250 for next year. Whatever the price is, it is worth it.
get you in. You have to be registered and prove it before you receive them. If you drop a class and you fall below 6 credits, your tickets will be "turned off".
You must maintain your class load to keep your tickets.
You need to be a student to buy the student season tickets, otherwise you can probably find some tickets from current students for a reasonable price. However, you will have to pay extra for a validation sticker.
Thanks to all of you.
...and I got my last weekend. My roommate, however, has not.
Isn’t there a new person in charge of the ticket office this year? Do they get? Will their system work here? is he a Michigan Man?
The associate AD of ticketing is now Steve Lambright. It used to be Marty Bodnar. Not sure about either of their lineages. I realize you're being sarcastic, but if you want to check, just use linkedin.
And they have a vm that says they are still working on season tickets (student and regular). Should all be done by Monday. So I would guess that's when they should be mailed out. Also, Monday they should be ready for pick up if you did will call.
I live in the Upper Peninsula and I just got mine today.
You have post offices there?!
Dunno if anyone will see this, but have any upperclassmen gotten terrible seats?
My girlfriend and her seating group got seats meant for freshmen because she had a co-op/internship during fall semester last year, and apparently some office screwed it up to say she was a freshman because of the time off. She has around 90 credits but they said she had only about 15. There is no way to reverse it, and I've heard this problem a few times.
Is there any recourse at all? People have said you can write a strongly worded letter to get better seats next year, but everyone in her seating group will have graduated, so that's useless. All I can say is, I love this school and football, but sometimes the system fucks up beyond all recognition without any chance to fix it. Maybe there's some way they could get better seats outside the student section that haven't been sold for individual games yet? I don't know. Fuck it, they aren't even my seats and I'm getting livid
