If you have been waiting for Victors' Club and Alumni Association Tickets from the Athletic Department, they should be in your mailbox today or tomorrow, or very soon.
See you in Madison! Jump around!
Out of curiosity, how much were the tickets for Wiscy if you don't mind? Did they come with a charter like the Iowa tix, or are they simply the tickets? This was a trip a few friends/me thought about making before we ended up going to EL, so this info would help for when we DO go to Madtown next time.
One of my goals is to visit every Big Ten campus/stadium someday. Maybe make a road trip out of it one season.
Already checked off: Michigan (obviously), MSU, and Purdue.
I'm looking into hitting ND and PSU next year, but that's if I'm in the clear as far as transportation/money. Columbus is a possibility, but it would mean not going to one of the other two.
I'm especially interested to see PSU, since I've heard ND's gameday experience is not quite as intense as PSU's (of course).
I think my Victors Club tickets were $46 ea. I forget how many points it took to qualify for the offer.
Alumni Association tickets are typically package deals (charter plus tickets plus whatever).
Sconnie is a great place to see a game. I used to think it was the noisiest stadium in the Big 10. Others doubt me; I think I was influenced by the fact that the only Sconnie games that I went to, were UW-UM games. And those games were nutso, even by usual Camp Randall standards. They HATE Michigan in Madison. They go CRAZY the day of the Michigan game. It is nearly a Columbus-level frenzy.
I happened to be in Madison for the day of their big game with Iowa this year. It was, I have to say, sedate, by their standards of a "Michigan" game.
Camp Randall is a nice venue. As a stadium, it is something like Spartan Stadium; an old stadium of small size, with an added upper wing and then some luxury boxes plus Barry Alvarez's private den and living room. As a setting, it is a little like a combination of Michigan Stadium (with a bit of westside neighborhood on one side, and some athletic campus surrounding the east side) combined with Chicago's Wrigleyville, insofar as there are probably 20 bars within a 20-minute walk of Camp Randall Stadium.) And they have Bucky. And House of Pain's 'Jump Around.' They get it on for Michigan.
That's the fun of being a Michigan fan/grad: EVERY other school in the Big Ten thinks you're their biggest rival.
