Which section do you like to watch a game from the most?
Mine, I like the north endzone around 30 rows back. Got to see the OSU game there last year. Best seats I've had so far.
Ummm...the student section!
Especially when it has the block M outlined. I am yet to NOT be in one of those.
The outlined block M looks amazing on TV. I realize this might be a stupid question, but how does that get organized?
They rope off the area for the M and give the people free shirts so they all match.
I was in that this past season, free shirts and everything.
Kudos to everybody who worked on it.
It was actually taped off, so I don't know who does that before the game. But I'll take credit nonetheless.
The Michigan Student Assembly is in charge of it. They partner up with the Athletics Department to make it happen.
Gotta show love for my section 37 blue fans. Will never forget Braylons TD against MSU...
It gives me the opportunity to spit in the Freep guys food and I make Mitch Albom fetch my beer at the half.
Okay. Thought about it.
Section 41-43? I would have guessed you prefer Section 1....
that shot includes section 1 in it
Where did you get this picture?? I'd like to use it for a graphic piece and would like to get proper permission.
I'm a real fan of the endzone seats. My dads season tickets have been in section 12 of the south endzone for the last four years or so. I like seeing the plays develop more, and having a TD scored (Winning TD against ND last year) scored coming at you is awesome.
No doubt about it, great action, and I agree, watching the plays develop is something else. And the endzones are alittle cheaper....even though thats not saying much.
The "bang for your buck" has to be superior over the sideline sections, IMHE. Also, the older alumni take up a lot of the sideline seats, so you can stand more freely in the endzones.
I'll take the section where my free tickets reside.
Definitely the "band" section. Front row. Don't even need a ticket.
anywhere except the annoying alumni who stand up the whole game. You arnt in school anymore, sit down!
I know ill be nagged for that. But there are people paying good prices to see the game and you are ruining it for them.
If you don't wanna stand up you could always stay home and watch it on TV for free... just saying
how about buying one of the new club seats, where you may rest your tired, old legs all you want.
and stay home. You can sit all you want in your living room.
Section 36, Row 28.
I have seen SO much there...
1. Braylon's thrashing of MSU
2. Howard's Heisman pose
3. Woodson's punt return vs OSU
4. Hayes catch vs Virginia
I could go on and on...
The only bad ticket is no ticket!
It wasn't nearly as high up as I thought...was a few steps to the exit to get right in and out for a restroom....,
I also took my dad to a game and had handicap tickets in section 11, and that was cool as heck, everyone was very accomodating for my dad and the restrooms were right there for him wich I got that benefit as well. No I am not old, but getting to a restroom and back before the qtr is over is always a major plus...but to do it and you didn't miss 2 possessions is awesome.
Section 27, row 7.
Tickets senior year... damn I miss it
North Endzone especially. I saw Indiana, Western Michigan, and Notre Dame last year there. All the other games (besides D State and Purdue) I was in different sections and they lost them all.
Right after a Michigan touchdown.
I've been in section 8, row 28 since I was 5 (20 years ago) thanks to my old man getting season tickets. Best thing that ever happened to me, because it inspired me to go to UM...and in a roundabout way it's how I met my fiance. So I owe those seats a lot...well maybe not because I got to watch Kordell Stewart's Ball of Doom fly right at my face. Ugh, such a painful memory.
There's a LOT of visiting fans...which is a curse or a blessing. But, I'm always yelling!
Nothing like the field though, such a different and AWESOME way to enjoy a game. I had to watch it at home later though to actually see what happened...otherwise I had no place arguing calls, personnel choices, etc.
Aside from the student section (27, row 1 my senior yr), I'll have to agree on the endzone. I normally got tix from alumni assoc. And they were always second 10-15, and now I have season tix in 17, row 69, and I think it is the best seat in the stadium. 3:30 games in the fall, you get shade from the press box in 2nd qtr.
My parents' longtime neighbor has had the same season tickets for over 30 years, despite the ticket office offering to upgrade him: Section 13, very top row. I've gone to a few games with him, and let me tell you, they are fantastic! You can stand all you want, or sit down and lean against the back wall and usually get some shade. I personally love being high up because it's so much easier to see what's happening on the field. I know that sounds counter-intuitive, but I've been in the lowest 10-20 rows many times, and you just can't see the big picture of what's going on. I need to be at least 40 rows up to be happy, call me crazy.
I'm a section 39 fan. I have always loved my seats for two reasons. First they are up high and I feel that there is a bit more room then some of my friends who are down closer to the field. Secondly, it is a smaller section and I have never yet had to wait in a line to get into the section. Many times I have had to excuse myself through the line into 38 which streams all the way down the hill into the commons, and then walk staight into good old 39.
Section 25. Best seats you can get as a student, ime.
Not so much a section as it's a row for me. Give me row 96 every game and I'll be a happy camper. At 6'4" 240 lbs, being able to lean back against something is great. Oh, and being able to stand anytime I want with no fear of blocking anyone's view.
Section 6 is great but if I had the power, I would create a standing room only section. That would be a special place to be.
This is a great idea.
