I'd bet they see that 2% of the student population attended the rally and that 2% of the eligble students and alumni signed the petition to have Brandon fired.
They see 2%.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||On the contrary||
Maybe you haven't been around long enough but the endzones have increased. I'm in row 96. There haven't been 96 rows since it was built.
I have had season tickets since I was a student back in 1994.
We can barely hear the band up in the top corner of the stadium. I rarely hear it amplified. I know they do not amplify the band during the halftime show, which was my point. Maybe it is a product of my seats being in the south endzone and all amplified sound comes from the north scoreboard, another one of my complaints.
Original construction had the top row at actual ground level before Yost added bleechers.
The top row is now 26 rows above said grade. A bit of a difference in distance from the field.

Aren't the Blue Hairs already as pissed off as much as the students? They may be chanting too.
I love the band. I don't like their recent (last 2 years) skits with "acting" though. I think they are horrible in fact.
I feel that the Big House has outgrown the band. We're too big now. The upper endzones are too far away from the band. The band rarely plays to the endzones. In my upper endzone seats we can barely hear the band. I wish they would amplify the band instead of piping music all the time.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Stoking the flames||
Speaking of which, is anyone else tired of MLive's Nick Baumgardner? That Sparty is just fueling the fires and loving every minute of it.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||chants||
Chants would get drowned out by the piped in music, not as effective.
I prefer the partial boycott to an all out boycott. However I will be in my seat from before kickoff until after the time has expired, cheering my team.
|21 weeks 6 days ago||The players deserve better||
Send me your tickets and I'll fill your seats.

|22 weeks 2 days ago||Go Blue||
My wife has been trying to rid our section of the "you suck" and replace it with "Go Blue" for years now. We (UM fans, not just my wife and I) are better than that. And like Club2230 stated, it makes little sense when they are beating us.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||Hoke didn't know||
Hoke says he didn't see the hit. Now I am not sure because I have seen the hit on Morris' chin so many times on this blog and my tv at home, but wasn't there a replay in the stadium of this hit? I thought I saw it, right after the play, on the big screen. Hoke didn't look up? No one looked up and saw the replay of the hit?
I'm sorry, I like Hoke, but I just can't believe the University's story that Hoke didn't know of the possible head injury.
I haven't read all 300 comments above to know if this has already been covered. Sorry if it has.
|23 weeks 5 hours ago||^ Agreed||
I wish I could write as well. Very well done.
|23 weeks 4 days ago||phork||
Your sense of humor is needed in times like these.
|25 weeks 2 days ago||Wait...what?||
I use ellipses a lot. I didn't know it bothers people. Sorry.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Make friends||
Study buddies help a bunch.
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Too Much to do...||
...too little time:
Build a deck
Finish a basement bathroom
Put all basement stuff back into storage
Get house ready for out of town guests
Tune up tailgate gear
|28 weeks 2 days ago||Hell Yes||
I've been wanting a small vacation in the Seattle area for some time. Now I have a good excuse. And my wife is always willing to go on a Michigan road trip.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Acronyms||
There are a ton of acronyms used on this site. I'd like to see an mgourbandictionary to look them up and follow along better. Maybe there is such a thing and I just don't know how to navigate the site.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||I'm sorry||
I'm sorry to be that guy but our impressive defensive line is going against our offensive line in practice. Don't you kind of expect them to look really good? Is Clark that good or is it the opposing RT at the time? Again, sorry, I'm still gun shy when it comes to this team.
|29 weeks 4 days ago||^ I agree||
We should get this Chicago game as part of our ticket pack.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||Filling the stadium||
I believe the issue with filling the stadium will be resolved with the 2015 home schedule.
|35 weeks 3 days ago||Opposite||
I guess I've been burned too much with this team. All I hear is bla, bla bla until I actually see something positive on the field.
Yet I read the thread. Go figure.
|35 weeks 6 days ago||Harrison||
A Harrison reference. I wish I could upvote more.
|37 weeks 2 hours ago||Club Seats||
No such email for my Club seats thus far. Bumming...
|37 weeks 4 hours ago||4 Years||
A talent like that staying all four years? Yes please.
|37 weeks 1 day ago||Outstanding!||
His offer list is Outstanding! Awesome news!
|43 weeks 1 day ago||but,||
But, isn't every game at Michigan Stadium like the Super Bowl already?
|43 weeks 4 days ago||Because of PSU||
Because Michigan got JoePa fired. /s
|43 weeks 4 days ago||Nuss > Borges||
Therefore better year. That's all folks.
|43 weeks 6 days ago||One year||
One year I really got into the Crown Royal and Mint Juleps. I missed half of the races, but I had several souvenir glasses!
|43 weeks 6 days ago||Betting||
My wife could pick the winning horse by checking out their back sides. She was actually correct more than worng. Too bad that by the time you get to compare horses' rear ends it is too late to get a bet in. I guess it isn't always about the money...
Edit: By "winner" I mean Show, not able to actually pick the winner.
|43 weeks 6 days ago||Lines aren't bad||
The lines aren't too bad if you dedicate the entire day/evening to the Derby. Gates open at 8am. Get there early and race to the best spot along the fence. Don't leave after the Derby race (used to be the 8th race out of 11, not sure anymore), stay until after the final race. The crowd will have all but left and the exit is fine. Besides, if you like betting, bet all the races and cash in after the last race, the bet window lines are much shorter then.
This is the biggest, longest party you'll attend. It is also a blast.
