During the last 25 years, college football has reached unprecedented levels of popularity, and everyone of those progams was weak for some portion of it.

He died of a heart attack. Why leave that detail out if you are going to all the trouble to mention where he died and how he was found?

I don't see how you can oversell GA student tickets anyway, given that the student tickets are season tickets.

The new practice facility was still under construction in '08.
This I know because I was at a alumni homecomming lunch at Oosterbaan, and I snuck out of one of the side doors to see the outdoor practice field. But then the door locked behind me and I was stuck out there. Nobody could hear me knocking to get back in. So I had to work my way out to the street through the new practice facility construction site and climb up and over the ten foot security fencing to get out.
I can vouch that it's a large building.

If you followed Michigan for a long time, you know how absurd the notion that Michigan would ever be Quarterback U was. That was for Miami or BYU or UCLA. Michigan?
On Monday Night Football one night in the '80's, a comment was made by one of the announcers to the effect of "There have been over 10,000 Touchdown passes throwrn in the NFL, and not one of them has been thrown by a Michigan Quaterback".
How far we've come. Seems like Brady alone has probably thrown 10,000.

Or just stay at the great party longer and see 3/4ths of the game from row 70. It's not like you won't get a seat, and a decent one at that.
I get single game alumni assoc. seats from time to time, which are terrible. They're at the very top of the South end zone, mixed in with the opponent's fans. After the half, I usually go over and sit in the top of the student section. The seats are better, the crowd is more lively (and more Michigan), and you're near the band. They're still pretty good seats.
Now imagine sitting in them after your great pre-game party, and life is pretty sweet.

They should have announced but delayed the policy for two years so that current upperclassmen were not impacted. If you are an incoming freshman and it's the policy when you come in, you don't really care.
It would be reasonable to ask them to delay this for two years.

DB is missing a great marketing opportunity here. He can rebrand the upper bowl in the student section as the "You Get to Sit Next to Drunk Sorority Girls" section, and charge double for those tickets.

Yes, they are (were?) elite. I wonder if they can keep it up now that it is much harder for them to recruit Texas since they won't be playing any games down there. Bo Pelini sniffing around Ohio for Meyer/Hoke/Dantonio scraps does not seem to be a viable replacement for Texas recruiting.

Why aren't the Refs required to answer questions after the game about calls they made or did not make? At least tell us your thought process. Maybe we'll learn something.
But to act like they can never be questioned and the only accountability is some secret internal review that nobody ever knows the outcome of, is so archaic.
