the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection

I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't think the Ross play was magical. This is nothing more than knowing your opponent and making a read. Young RG probably has an obvious tell prior to pulling.

I held a dslr with removable lens in plain site as i was walking in. Wore it around my neck the whole time. Nobody said anything. Didnt even know the rule exists.

If you're talking about Saturday night, then you'll be required to buy a single ticket that covers both games. So consider face value of $120 ... not $60. You can't split it up.

|6 weeks 3 days ago||Face Value||
I know face value for my seats on Saturday night is $120 ($60 * 2 games). I have some of the worst upper bowl seats in the dome though, and I know that better seats have a higher face value.
Likewise, face value for Monday is $60.
Tickets acquired through NCAA lottery.

Now that I think of it, when I logged in, there was an option for selling tickets that I did not explore. So maybe there is a safe way to exchange money built into Flash Seats. Like I said, my friend just sent me the tickets via that site and we are settling up later.... so maybe he had to indicate the sale price was $0 or something on his end. He initiated the transfer. You will have to create an account and register that account with a credit card, then that credit card is used to pick up tickets at the venue.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Yep||
Flash Seats is how I got mine. Very legit. There's a way you can send your tickets to others via email. Not a great way for money to change hands though. I am paying my friend via check, not via flash seats. Flash seats seems to be a ticket management tool after the tickets are paid for.

When watching it on TV, I remember being distracted by the camera angle. Totally missed the signature Mitch outlet pass to set up the bucket.

Respecting your fellow conference members, especially those that beat you, is the classy thing to do.

If mgoblog was a retailer and the front page posts were its products, would this "product" be pulled from the shelves for not complying with the blog's core values / best practices. There is no humor or wit in the post. There is no deep statistical examination of data (the extant bullet points are misleading and don't tell the whole story). There is no brilliant prose capturing the visceral effects of a game we all watched.
This rant is of the same "quality" you can get at other blogs. This blog is better than other blogs. Come on Brian, stick to your bread and butter!
Side Note: Some people out there make a ton of money. Some even dictate their own salaries. That's just how it is.
Side Note 2: Lifetime economic benefits associated with a university education are undeniable (for everyone, not just athletes). One could argue that athletes have an additional leg up in the job market because an employer can reasonably assume candidates that are former college athletes are coachable and goal-oriented, work well in teams, and have the ability to commit to a cause.

Sure, save some coin by buying all your season tickets on stubhub. Here's what you get if you step up and get your season tickets the old fashioned way:

Devin Gardner wants (NEEDS!) you there on time on Saturday!
Also, give credit to the students for 100% attendance in the two basketball games that were televised this week. The non-student sections were, I don't know, 33% full? That's how it looked on TV.

Fitz should be able to keep 75% of his big points earned from the 4th down, instead of giving half of them back on the punt. Rugby punt is still the incorrect choice, but saving the timeout is not the incorrect choice.
Taking the delay of game penalty backs NU out to the Mich 49 yardline. The NU long punt of the day was 53 yards and they already pinned Mich inside the 10 twice. Moving the ball back to the 49 from the 44 is OK if it means you save your last timeout. You've already blown several leads in B1G play this year, and you want that last timeout in case Michigan surprises you with a trick formation during the last 0:18.
I also think it was wise to NOT USE the timeout to ice the field goal kicker after the roundtree catch, because Michigan just had to scurry the length of the field to set up the 1st down spike and 2nd down FG. Icing the kicker just gives M a chance to catch their breath. (See 12-10 victory over MSU where The Threat has to be the FG holder moments after getting blasted, but Dantonio's timeout allows him to recover). Fitz also possibly knew that Gibbons can't be iced

Hilarious unexpected outcome of the "Jake Ryan gets chopped then makes the play" play at 1:45 ... both Minnesota players numbers 20 and 4 simultaneously execute the frustration clap
|28 weeks 4 days ago||ND||
The ND game I went to was the Sam McGuffie rain storm RichRod loss of 2008. The rain cut my postgame experience short, but pregame the ND fans were mostly friendly with a few people yelling BOO as you walk by. The thing that ND doesn't have is a city like Lincoln or Ann Arbor next to the campus with all kinds of food/drink/entertainment available.
|28 weeks 4 days ago||Agreed on your last comment||
Ironically, there were about ~30-40 Michigan students in my section staying enthusiastic the whole time and doing all the chants as if it were Michigan Stadium... and after Bellomy's third INT one of the Nebraska fans said "Aren't you guys happy we don't have a You Suck chant?"
