I rushed home from work and nothing. And I live in Metro Detroit!!!
|15 weeks 4 days ago||Red Rock...||
I would say Red Rock as well for the area. They have a very good beer list as well.
|27 weeks 2 days ago||wow I'm surprised...||
I figured w Coach Harbaugh here, everyone would have renewed their tickets and the interest list would have been huge. There must have been a really big drop in season ticket holders the last few years.
|31 weeks 1 day ago||thanks...||
Tailgate Clothing Co - they do run small (2 sizes for me).
They also have a collection of tshirts for beers and bars: http://www.tailgateclothing.com/collections/beer http://www.tailgateclothing.com/collections/speakeasy-t-shirts
|31 weeks 1 day ago||If I had to pick just one...||
the new jacket I just got.
really warm. Like everyone else, I have a ton of stuff and can think of at least 5 other things but I'll just pick one.
|31 weeks 4 days ago||Got the coat...||
Loved how clean and simple it was. There's nothing on the back and its not covered in patches like other varsity coats out there.
I got it from Tailgate Clothing - they got some cool stuff. http://www.tailgateclothing.com/

The notes are spot on - they do run really small.

if you watch the presser from mgoblue.com, neither side of the hat has a logo on it.
I wonder if this is just his personal Michigan hat that he's kept over the years.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||Thanks Again...||
looks like I'm gonna do some shopping once I get my tax refund!
|36 weeks 6 days ago||Thank you....||
I knew you would know - too bad I can't get one (assuming everyday joe can't order from the team catalogs) that jacket Marshall had on is sweet.
|36 weeks 6 days ago||Question WD...||
The blue adidas jacket that Iman Marshall was wearing in pics, do you know where you can get one?
|38 weeks 5 days ago||Might as well get the Michigan ones...||
|38 weeks 5 days ago||I normally wait for WD...||
but w it being Very Limited Preorder only, thought I should get it up ASAP.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||You have to call...||
Its preorder only, I just called and ordered one.
|40 weeks 1 day ago||Totally agree...||
He wanted the job so bad and now 3 times reports are he was never a candidate yet has been nothing but a class act about it.
Would have loved his as Plan B.
|40 weeks 2 days ago||Kaepernick was my fav...||
He ended his part of the presser w something to the effect of he'll always be a fan of Coach Harbaugh...not so much Michigan.
|1 year 1 hour ago||Bud Foster?||
Curious what the board thinks but I haven't seen him mentioned at all.
Foster's had solid defenses at Va Tech, you always hear he's a great recruiter and Beamer signed an extension during the off season to 2019.

forward the whole email to President Schlissel.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Well that sucks...||
With all our big games being on the road, I wasn't expecting ND, MSU or OSU but I would have thought I would have been offered Rutgers and Northwestern.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||I agree w you but...||
I also agree w Finance-phD.
To your point: yes they should have done a better job promoting their own event. They could have easily split the bar area in 2: one side all tables and TVs dedicated to the football game and the other to UFC. All locations in Kansas and Michigan would have audio to the game for the teams playing in the game (I know you weren't in MI so that part wouldn't help you).
To Finance-phD's point: they already sunk in millions of dollars, so adding discounts, etc. would have cost them even more. Buffalo Wild Wings put in about $2 mil and then costs for ads. They got their brand out there nationally, which is all they wanted and weren't going to do anything more. From last year: http://www.sponsorship.com/Sponsorship-Consulting/Focus-on-College-Football-Bowl-Games--IEG-Research/What-s-in-a-Name--$99-Million-for-Bowl-Game-Title.aspx
I'm not sure if this still applies but when I worked in a bar, the rules on the pay per view events was your capacity times the cost of the event. The fights are usually about $60 so you're looking at $45k for a 750 capacity bar.

you can always go to their website and send some feeback:
|1 year 40 weeks ago||I know alot of people who work at bars that show UFC fights...||
the "food and a few beers...lounging at the table for 4 hours" is what the UFC fans do too. They hate working these nights.
|1 year 40 weeks ago||My Favorite...||
On the Buffalo Wild Wings website, the front page says they are "the official hangout for NCAA sports".

Woodson narrates this one, while Lloyd narrated the first.
|2 years 3 weeks ago||Thank you...||
I tried a few times and failed miserably.
|2 years 9 weeks ago||Possible because Oregon is Phil Knight's football franchise...||
the article is from a few years ago, but Phil Knight pays for everything there (unfortunately its written by Rosenberg): http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/writers/michael_rosenberg/01/06/oregon.knight/index.html
All i know is that program is screwed when he passes.

I'd rent a car.

|2 years 9 weeks ago||Family 4 pack||
You can buy a family 4 pack to that game direct from Michigan. 4 tix, 4 tshirts, 4 hot dogs, 4 drinks and 2 programs for $310. http://ev8.evenue.net/cgi-bin/ncommerce3/SEGetPackageInfo?packageCode=GS%3AUM%3A%3AF13FP3%3A&linkID=umichse&shopperContext=&caller=&appCode=
The band is in the student section, so you don't have to worry about that.
You can always park at Pioneer HS (SW corner of Stadium/Main; kitty corner from stadium) or on the golf course (SE corner of Stadium/Main). You shouldn't have a problem finding a spot at these locations and should run you about $40 to park at either. With it being a 3:30 kick and 1st game of the year, I would expect most will get there real early.
There is a small Fan-Fest where Pioneer is w some radio broadcasts and other pregame festivities.

They are in the corners of the stadium w $200 per seat donation. Go to the 2013 PSD Guide: http://support.mgoblue.com/annual-giving/preferred-seating-donation/

I would have to assume he will be in attendance for UTL 2 this year when they bring back Ol' Number 98 for this year's Legends Ceremony.
