|19 weeks 5 days ago||I spent 4 hours today||
I spent 4 hours today surrounded by and talking to former players.
First, I think it's inaccurate to lump the former players together. There are almost 2000 former players. They don't think and act as one. Just like fans on this board they all have their own opinions.
However, almost 200 of them showed up today to support the team and the currrent players.
All the players I spoke to were very supportive of the players and wanted nothing but the best for them.
I get that this is 'adverse selection.' I'm talking to the ones that showed support by showing up.
I can assure you that it hurts and pains the ones I talked to as much as the fans, if not even more.

I was at an event with Hoke and had a conversation with him regarding recruiting.. one comment he made to me which I thought was very interesting..
'NCAA will never allow earlier official visits because the Southern schools will stop it. The southern schools want the official visits to be during the winter."
He believes it's a big recrutiing advantage to for southern schools to have their players have to go North in Nov, Dec, Jan for officials. And, have the northern kids go south during the winter for officials.
The more I thought about it, the more I agreed with him. AND I had never thought about that before.

My experience is also that none of the other sites are good for selling or buying club tickets.

To the AD's credit, there is a site, where premium ticket holders can buy and sell tickets, but it's only at face value. (maybe this year it will be tiered with the new dynamic pricing).
So, my experience was that I could easily get bottom tier games, but anything middle tier and above, was not available. Which makes perfect sense, who is going to give up a Ohio, Notre Dame, MSU ticket for face value? In the club?

You are getting good advice from below.
The chances of getting them through the AD is slim to none.
There are probably more tickets available than you would think becuase of it being Tgving weekend. There is less demand, and people that have tickets, might not be able to use them.
The real game could be a week later in the B10 championship game, if it looks like that is where we are headed, it's a possibility that the game could have little or no meaning of who wins, with everybody looking forward to the follwoing week. Who knows how likely this is.
If you want to 'play the scalping' game, then between last minute stub hub, and scalpers, you can probably do 'ok'. I hate that doing that, because i want to enjoy tailgaitng, etc, not managing my tickets.

I'm a former manager for the football team. (back in 85). The athletic department puts on these football socials that you might have heard about. There are about 8 of them throughout the country. Every year (this was the third year). I live in the DC area and have been to all three that they have had. Every year Curt Mallory was here. Last year it was Mattison and Mallory, this year it was Hoke (and Laura) and Mallory.
I've met Brady several times at several different donor and former player functions. He would probably recognize me, but I doubt he would remember my name.
When I was getting ready to leave the social, he gave me a full hug. Seriously. I was stunned. I barley know him and he's hugging me? It was really different and in that momement I realized how important the former players (and managers!) were to him.
I believe this story is indicative of how he is with the recruits. He really bonds with them at a level, that probably no other top 20 coach does.

I make my reservations 1 year in advance (seriously). You can always cancel them, so why not?
By staying at the airport, it's cheap and we can either get a car via priceline at $16 a day or we take the shuttle to the hotel and rent the car the next day.
We then drive to Ann Arbor in the morning and park on main street near Ann. In a garage for $3. We walk to game, which is a nice stroll down Main Street (mden, bars, etc). If we eat, we eat at the Broken Egg.
We taligate with friends, goto the game and then walk back and do dinner at Chop House. We love it there and we get reservations. After dinner, it's an easy ride back to the Hotel.

|2 years 24 weeks ago||According to my conversations||
According to my conversations with the marketing department in the AD, the correct maize is PMS 116 (Blue is PMS 282)
The new banner is not quite that color maize because it would have involved a custom run of fabric of over 300 yards, so, we were forced to pick the yellow that is closest. It's not the perfect maize, but I think it's better than the old, and more importantly more closely matches the uniforms. I really don't care which yellow we use, but I believe it should all match.
When you pull up the PMS 116, you'll see that is an almost perfect match to the exterior of the new scoreboards and the new stuff at crisler and Yost. It's a 3-5 year project (according to AD) to get all the different maizes to be the same in all the different apparel.

I have seats in section 308. We do love them. They are expensive as you can imagine. You can write off 80% of the PSD, but not if you buy an individual ticket.
The first year I had seats in the indoor club. We didn't like them. Not as fun or exciting. Unless you are disabled or some other real good reason, I wouldn'get them in the indoor club.
In the outdoor club, We are under cover, so even though we are outside, we are protected from the elements, cold rain, snow, etc. (think western last year, we were dry)
I also have a 7 year old daughter and I love being in the club seats with her. She goes to the bathroom when she goes, not at halftime.. so, being able to stand outside the bathroom, waiting for her and still being able to see the game is awesome. (vs losing 45 minutes in the bowl, standing in line, etc)
For 1 set of tickets, it's a no brainer to give it a try... if you are thinking about buying tickets there permanently, there is more to think about.

For what it's worth. I had a conversation with coach Mallory this spring, and the freshman he was most excited about was Darboh. He said that unsolicited.
Mallory recruited Darboh, so I wasn't sure how much validity to give it and one practice does not a career make.. but so far so good...

You can't do that. Stub hub will not let you buy or sell Club level tickets on their site. For the Club holders, that's the whole problem.

It's only for premium ticket holders. It's a way for premium seat holders to buy sell tickets to each other only. We can't buy/sell on stub hub... they don't allow us to..
Edit: this was in response to "dothepose"
|2 years 31 weeks ago||My only concern is that you||
My only concern is that you have to sell them at face value ($75-95). My concern is that people won't sell them there because the price is so low. I would prefer the option to sell for whatever we want. I actually own two seats in the club, but would want to buy some additonal seats and I will pay more to get the opportunity.

I can assure you your number is incorrect. My understanding is that the number is 5000 between schools. I know for a fact that Wisconsin only give us 3000 so we only give them that back.
I have had disucssions about this with the AD and that is what they told me.

I don't know if that will work this year.. it made sense last year, because Urban came on late and many prospects wouldn't consider Ohio with Fickel. (and PSU meltdown was also part of it)
This year it will be much harder, because they will have already considered Ohio.

I don't know anything about PA law.. but the rumor is that he has whistle blower status and that he can't be fired or disciplicned because he is a witness to a crime and he turned the person in. (PA state government or quasi government institution).
Not saying i agree with that.. just that that is what is being reported and it sounds accurate. I think it's a very complicated legal issue. It would explain a lot of PSU's actions in the last 72 hours with regards to MM.

I think there are two issues.. the loudness of the fans... definitely louder.. by far.. maybe 40%.
And, secondly, the loudness of the music, band, etc. They mic (sp?) the band now and it comes through incredibly loud.
It's a much better gameday experience.
They do a good job of playing the music when the band can't play. Almost every single time I heard music, I looked for the band and the band was either, walking on sideline getting ready for halftime, getting back in their seats after halftime, the drum line just finished... etc.
