Phew, for a minute there I was afraid I was going to see a gif of Johnny Football pooping in a cooler.

i'm frustrated too, but how are you gonna compete with this for a high schooler's attention??

You can also pick up the validation stickers at the Crisler box office on gamedays too, but I think you need a student to purchase them.

Soccer doesn't actually have universal field dimensions-- only an acceptable range of dimensions is specified in the rules.

Sorry for the downvote, but I just wanted to make sure your first double-post experience was a complete one. And what's a double-post without downvotes??

Change 'your' to 'you're' and you're more correct.

Interesting... I was trying to root for Italy since my wife is first generation Italian, but I was so disgusted by the flopping and blatant time wasting antics that I found myself pulling for Uruguay. Until the Suarez bite, at least.

"And Italy got screwed on the red card...that was a touch foul."
Uhhh, no. That was not a touch foul. He kicked him directly in the knee. Anytime you go cleats up straight to the knee, you're getting at least a yellow. It may not have deserved a red, but definitely a card-worthy offense.
"Officiating inconsistency is this World Cup has been rampant."
Fully agree. The Dempsey incident should have been at least a yellow.

Howard was put in completely untenable positions by his defense on both of Portugal's goals. I don't put either of those on him.

i'm attributing 50% of the creeped out looks to the stache. hopefully that's not being too optimistic...

I rocked my Mo around campus as part of the MGoBlog team and would be happy to talk about the experience... and creeped out looks I received. Email is gerlach.(first name, should be pretty obvious from my user name) at gmail.

Obviously I was there. What a silly question.
In response to "How do you know he didn't go out of his way to represent our interests but was overruled?", I never said he didn't try. But the two options are 1) he tried but was ineffectual or 2) he didn't consider it important enough to fight for. Those are both pretty crappy.

First of all, it's Dave Brandon's job to represent Michigan's interests to the conference, i.e. ensuring we don't get boned with the scheduling.
That aside, having State on the schedule would not rescue it from being awful. Two conference games against the historical football powers of Maryland and Rutgers every year is an anchor on the schedule and weak out of conference scheduling is the final dagger here.

Uhh, did people really think this was isolated to only UofM/Brandon to start with? The vitriol for Brandon around here isn't because he's a pioneer in being an evil AD. It's due to him following the trends of commercialization of many other ADs.

screw watching on tv, you should have no problem scalping tix for every game for far less than $295 total. penn state is the only game you may have to pay over face for. the non-con games should be available for under $20, and the crappy conference games should be available for $20-$30.

Dave Brandon dropped the ball big time by allowing the B1G to schedule MSU and ohio home and away in the same years.

I am one of the students that that has bypassed the opportunity to purchase student tickets. If you had told the junior year version of me that I'd ever even consider such an action, junior year me would have punched you and then himself in the face and gone to work building a time machine so he could punch current me in the face even harder.
I've noticed the mounting emails that have developed more and more of a begging tone with each one. I can't believe UofM has been reduced to this. It's very sad. But you just cannot continue to jack up prices for a product of decreasing quality-- in terms of the schedule, gameday experience, and most unfortunately, the on-field performance.
