All three packs are still available.
to play football, not to play trumpet
Nebraska pack with SDSU and WMU. Tickets are section 22, 24, and 1. I've never been to the stadium, and from what I can see, these tickets seem to be in a good spot. Can anyone back up my google seating chart research?
50 yard line for OSU. Yes, the seats are about as good as you can get. I'm in rows 69/70 for three and row 16 for western (which I need to sell).
Very nice! (borat voice)
But...No kidding, they are all good! Hard to get a bad seat! Trust Me.
Very nice seats! I thought about going for the Ohio game or the Nebraska just to get better seats but i couldnt pass up on the first night game!
i have the ND tickets in my cart and it wont check out....5:00 left and they release them back.
got my ND pack with Purdue and Minnesota, locations are not great, but I'm in the door, thats all I care about.
Got 2 tix to the ND, Purdue, and Minn! Looks like a lot of road trips this year! Go Blue!
Was doing some mad clicking around 8:28 in case there was some clock difference with the servers, but got my ND/Purdue/Minny tickets too! I then proceded to run through the lobby of the hotel. Go Blue!
Jacked up right now...I didn't think I would be able to get them (and I think my wife was hoping I couldn't lol) but looks like a couple 9 hour trips from PA are in store for this fall!
I got two notre dame ticket packs with western and purdue. With my two Notre Dame tickets, I feel like I've woken up into a world where I am new father of two wonderful children!
Now sold out unless you only want 1 ticket
How do you get field passes?
He's lying. AFAIK field passes aren't ever sold (except maybe in a Mott auction or something similar), they're given out by the AD. This is the same guy who likes Michigan's "striped" helmets and brought down the ESPN poll by himself, I wouldn't listen to anything he has to say.
Got the OSU Pack with EMU, SDSU, and Purdue. Sections 18, 15, 6, and 8 respectively. Not too disappointed to be in the corner but have decent rows for the OSU game (19), SDSU (15), and I'll even say Purdue (81). Kind of got owned with the EMU game getting row 2 in the corner. While close I will basically be able to see nothing.
Does anyone know how ling it takes to get these tix in the mail?
is the worst seat allotment that I received.
Shouldn't be surprising. That game is basically sold out now due to all of the Fan's Choice Packages sold. I just had some problems with Purdue tickets when I was dicking around on the system. I think UM fans might be a little excited.
Got section 40 row 16 for WMU, sec 6 row 19 for SDSU, sec 15 row 2 EMU (shitty), and sec 18 row 44 for OSU. Got 2 each. Seems like the people who ordered 4 got better seats. Oh well not too bad.
Haha, I'm in 15 Row 2 for EMU as well...I'll be selling those to some poor schmuck who sees Row 2 and creams themselves.
Just remember that if you have tickets to sell do it here:
Keep them with Michigan fans! don't go to craigslist and let other fans invade the stadium
I wanted four, was on the phone at 8:28, the ticket rep said the best I could get was two tickets piggy-backed (same seat, two rows next to each other) and then I'm hemming and hawing and he says, "Wait, I've got three tickets together with one piggy backed." I exploded "Take it, I'll take it." Got my WMU, EMU and Minnesota tickets as Purdue is also piggy-backs only.
to ND, EM, Purdue and Minnesota.
I guess the real issue now is finding housing for the ND game...
This will be my first time at Michigan Stadium. Can anybody tell me how good these seats are? I know they're all endzone, but not sure good the view is.
ND: Section 37, row 89
EMU: Section 10, row 90
Minnesota: Section 36: row 88
Purdue: Section 8, row 61
I really don't mind if they're not the greatest seats, I got the games I wanted in the end.
They aren't horrible. The higher up you get the more you can see. Anything under like 15 can be a viewing issue, anything over 80 you are up there a ways but still have a decent view. I like being between 15-60 personally.
Ordered mine right at 8 a.m. hoping to get the best deal. Got 4 of the OSU packages. Also, Minnesota and SDSU. All corner of the endzone whether it is Section 15 17 or 38. Sat in that area last year and had a solid view. OSU game Section 17 Row 61. Minnesota game is a pretty high row. Can anyone let me know what the view is like from up there. Sat near the top for the App. St. game, but that is all a blur anyways :/
Not bad at all. I mean you're def. up there. The worst part of those seats is the trek to and from the pisser. Other than that, the view is pretty solid. There's really not a bad seat in the house other than the poorly angled seats way down low.
Definitely looking forward to my first OSU game. The others are just a bonus.
Surpirsingly, as of what most have said about the EMU game, I ended up with Section 15 Row A. Is A the closest row?
Haha, yuck. It's awesome to say you are front row, but you'll see it's not as glorious as it sounds. Although, maybe the corner might not be to bad down that low. If you were behind the bench in Row A that would suck royally.
Yea I was thinking corner would prevent any view problems. Either way, it was a nice bonus to get a front row seat, along with the OSU game.
He managed to get the OSU pack, which will be my last home game as a student and hopefully a resounding victory.
ND: sec 9 row 16 (!)
EMU: sec 10 row 86
WMU: sec 6 row 87
Minny: sec 16 row 74
Just got the OSU pack. I'm moving out of state in a few weeks but know I'll have the weekend after thanksgiving off so I pulled the trigger. Unfortunately I know I'll have to work other various weekends and not sure about the ND weekend yet.
SDSU: Sec 43, Row 87
Purdue: Sec 21, Row 2 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
EMU: Sec 20, Row 86
OSU: Sec 24, Row 25 (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) This may be the perfect ticket!
Some pretty lucky tickets in there, but i'll probably end up sneaking over to the student section anyway. Can't start my alum life with the blue hairs just yet.
anyone know when northwestern opens there tickets to the public? really want to get my tickets for the Oct 8 night game. thats going to be my game this year. showing my girl chicago and getting myself in on some michigan football at the same time is the plan.
I used to get mine in the NWU ticket office the day they went on sale and was the only one there when it opened. (I worked across the street from Dyche/Ryan for 5 years.)
I'm waiting to grab these, too, as I have made every M game in Evanston since 1998 with the wife, since she's a Cats fan.
yeah I've heard there an easy ticket, but also don't want to risk it ethier since i'm going to get a nice hotel and show my gal a good time, and bring her to her first college football game. would suck if I waited only to find that since its a night game and first michigan game in evansten in a few years it turns into a hot ticket and i'm stuck without any tickets.
when do tickets get mailed? August?.. also how many rows are in the stadium 95? thanks
So i woke up this morning planning on getting on my computer at like 820 and getting ready to buy a ND pack. Then in the shower I realized that I lived in the central time zone now and that tickets were already on sale. Naturally, i practically jumped out of the shower and ran over to my computer.
Still managed to get
ND row 40
EMU row 11
SDSU row 83
MINN row 69
But thats assuming I actually sit in these seats before going to the student section.
Nice catch! I live in pasadena. Luckily, I realized the time zone difference ahead of time. I woke up at 5:15 am and got two notre dame ticket packs!
God I wish there was still the possibility to pos bang! I am so jacked up right now. Have my tickets ordered and now it's just a matter of time before tailgating and football begins!
This is great -- I am getting excited just reading about other people getting their ticket packs! I love Michigan!!!!
I'm going to try to get tix to the N'western, Iowa and Illinois road games (I live in Iowa). I think single-game tix go on sale next week, but now I can't check due to the ticket pack frenzy!
Tried to get 2 ND packs about 15 minutes of open and was denied. Tried several times at all price levels. I am on the spreadsheet and need 2.
The Boo was for me missing out, not the tix office or anything.
I just bought season tickets.
My plan is to sell a few games to cover the cost of the tickets. Have no idea where they are, however they are 2nd year grad student tickets, and she went to undergrad here in the honors program. The tickets should be amazing because I am not in a seating group.
I know its early but feel free to contact me if you are intersted in one of the "big 3" as well as any other game.
just bought two separate nd packs. 70 bucks for emu and wmu is a bit ridiculous....
Well, WMU is Hoke's first game and the season opener in the upgraded Big House, so I could see $70 for that. Eastern? No.
Does anyone know whether any road-game tickets (Iowa, specifically) will be made available to the public? If so, where? Thanks.
You suck. Next time, let people who are going to the game buy them.
And if you sell them to anyone but Michigan fans I wish nothing but ill will upon you.
Love it or leave it....get a job
An engagement ring was supposed to cost three months' pay, and signify to your future in-laws that you had the means to provide for their daughter. Those reasons are just a tad outdated. However, the main stone on the ring was not always a diamond, though diamond sellers would have us believe otherwise. If you have a unique enough lady to appreciate it, you can probably save some money and some e-douchbaggery by looking at rings with a different main stone and maybe smaller diamond accents.
If you're just set on spending $5,000 and then complaining about it, by all means continue.
Yeah, I'm 70K in debt, but you don't see me selling out my alma mater and fellow alums and Michigan fans for a quick buck. Get a (another) job or cut out your unnecessary expenses.
Someone who legitimately wanted to go to the game - maybe with their kids or their father or their fiance - won't get to because you selfishly decided to buy up as many tickets as you could so you could sell them for a profit.
You're the definition of a dick.
Is it selfish? Yes. You are selfish.
All my listings are gone. Sigh.
I purchased my package online with OSU in row 87 and Eastern in Row 84.
I called the ticket office at 734.764.0247 asking if they could switch my tickets to the best available, and they got me to row 36 for OSU and Row 28 for Eastern on comperable sections.
The person was really nice and friendly. Took 3 minutes or so.
Just give them the confirmation # on your email and you are good to go!
Did they happen to say if you call tomorrow for instance, that they can still rearrange your seats to the current best available?
She said if anything changed to go ahead and call back. I called 15 minutes before the office closed for the day!
I think as long as there are tickets that they will exchange if asked!
What a day to be alive!
Now it's time to book flights from Colorado!
Just wanted to thank you for the heads up. Got 3 out of 4 of my seats changed. Got 7th row at the OSU game. Front row at Emu. 9th at Minnesota. and 22nd at SDSU. Appreciate it man!
I called again today to see if I could move to a sideline section for the OSU game, instead of a corner, and they got my tickets to the 40 yard line - row 30.
Again, they were super friendly.
Kind of stoked that I got homecoming Purdue tickets as well. Row B. I'm 6'5 and my brother is 6'6, so that should be an experience.
My wife is going to the OSU and SDSU game with me. Should be a great fall!
I love when I impulse buy and it works out.
Booked flights from Colorado and hotels today!
Good to go!
Now I just can't spend any money until I attend these games! An expensive couple days to say the least!
Is anyone traveling from PA? I can't decide on whether to take a train or just drive. Any suggestions on travelling from the east coast for the games would be a huge help!!
I'm headed there from PA....what part of PA are you from?
I'll be travelling from Northeast Maryland ... moving there in a couple weeks. Didn't think of the train option... are there any decent train options?
The train from Harrisburg, PA was $78.00 but it took about 15hours to get there. I just went to Amtrak.com
You no longer HAVE to buy the Eastern Michigan game. They are giving you the option of Eastern or Western Michigan. Then you get to pick between Purdue, Minnesota, San Diego State, or Western again.
There are no bars close to Michigan Stadium..
Well, Packard Pub is the closest. Not a terrible option.
You have two choices:
Main/Washington Street or South U.
You said college age, so you wanna go South U. That means you're looking at Charleys, Brown Jug and Blue Lep on South University Street, about a mile to mile and half from the stadium. I'd rate them in that order. If you want somewhere to dance with a bunch of slutty chicks, then Rick's is also an option in the area.
Washington Street provides a mix of college students and older folks (think grad student age and up).
Main street (maybe closest to the stadium) is the older crowd's scene.
i've got tix to the notre dame game in section 3, about row 50. can anyone tell me what those seats are like? it's only my 2nd game in the big house. the first was 06 against none other than brady hoke's ball state. mike hart fumbled in the end zone for the first time in forever
Those seats are pretty tight... Er.. I mean they actually suck. Wanna sell them?
