At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”

At some point during the second half we joked about overtime. After the game, he just gave me his ticket for the elite 8 game.

There's a lot of shady $$$$ in college basketball. It only takes one or two recruits to have a great run in the tournament.
Honestly if Michigan is top 3 of the Big Ten year in year out, why are we really complaining about what our basketball recruiting is ranked? We're doing fine with players we're bringing in (and they're probably going to stay at Michigan longer than the top ranked recruits).

I've gotten multiple interviews after talking to people to the career fair (3-4 years ago). Once you make the connection into a company, make sure you follow up with them. Odds are they'll contact you when they come back to the career fair and you'll have an inside track to an interview.
Also the tech sessions sponsored by companies are a great way to meet the recruiters and its usually free dinner.

Honestly, unless your sitting with Michigan students who went on the road trip with you, there are no special cheers that you need to know. Cheer like a normal basketball game and there'll be the usual go blue and lets go blue.
If your at Crisler, the use your gun is a real chant. The maize rage also chants the names/nicknames of the players during the starting lineups. On offensive posessions they will cycle through a couple of chants like "Here we go Michigan, here we go" or "Lets go Blue".
On defense, lots of "ooohs" except for the special player of the game who is nominated "bum". Whenever he touches the ball, everyone just chants "bum" until he shoots or passes.
Chant "hey" sarcastically when the other coach argues a call to the refs. Also late in the game there will be a possession where the maize rage says everything the other team is doing. A dribble is "bounce", a pass is "pass", and a shot is "shot".

But the conversation isn't about the fans but rather the students. They were there real early. Plus they make it real hard to sell tickets to outsiders as the student tickets can only sell tickets to people with school id's. As a result, people get to the stadium relatively early to get into the good sections of the student section.
Also random things about USC football. Who the fuck designed that stadium? You feel soo far away from the game in the seats. However, they sell these things called guest tickets to the students. They can bring friends to games and into the student section for less than face value. Obviously they don't have them for big games but I thought that was kinda cool. It just doesn't work when the entire stadium sells out though.

meh. The only good thing about the trophy room is the mechicanical bull. Yes it gets rowdy but the uptown is always rowdy on weekends. I like the den next door a little better as each floor is like a different bar. Plus you can't beat the view.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||ballpark probably around||
ballpark probably around $60-70 if they are using typical Dallas taxi rates. I dunno if its higher leaving from the airport. Thats about like 20 miles which adds up with the meter.

thats the first place I'm going to friday night once my friends fly into town...

|2 years 48 weeks ago||DFW||
Warning to those using DFW. Be very careful when leaving via the North Exit. YOU WILL GET LOST unless you brought a GPS and don't mind getting on a few wrong highways.
They are doing crazy construction on the North Exit and the last time I was there I was forced onto the wrong highway because they closed a whole bunch of ramps and forced you onto an exit. I highly recommend leaving via the South Exit. However, you can still reach the airport via the North Entrance although it takes you through a detour on the side roads while they fix the highway.
To those traveling eastbound from DFW, be wary of a highway called 635. Yes it may be the highway in Office Space (in the very beginning) but there is even more construction on 635 than at the Airport. Check google traffic updates if you are planning on using it.
As for DFW, it was designed to have the gates, baggage claims, and parking as close as posssibly together. If you look at it in that light you'll realize you walked like 1000 feet to your baggage claim and if you parked at the terminal, your car is like another 2000 feet away. Watch the signs closely as you drive around as there are a lot of exits in every lane (including the middle one). And yes there is a toll for just driving in but its a dollar so suck it up.

The Dallas Alumni club is having a happy hour/drinking thing at Black Friar in uptown on friday night.
|2 years 48 weeks ago||probably Paul Gyarmati (5th||
probably Paul Gyarmati (5th Year Senior Backup FB). I thought he was 2nd on the depth chart for the spring game.
|2 years 49 weeks ago||Aerial Pestisides||
I wouldn't worry too much. The mosquitos are most active at dawn and dusk. In addition, recently they've started spraying pesticides via trucks and crop dusters. They are doing it multiple times so they can kill the mosquitos that hatch since the last spraying. This is all happening scheduled to be finished in the next week or two (before you all get in town).
|2 years 51 weeks ago||(No subject)||
And there's a perfect example of the party deck relatively full. There's also little standing areas on some of the stairwells with some stools. I'll check my camera later to see if I have any pics.
|2 years 51 weeks ago||So for those of you who||
So for those of you who haven't been to Cowboys Stadium have to realize that Michigan has already sold a bunch of the Standing Room Only seats and now its a living social deal so I'd expect the Party Deck to be extremely packed. If you actually want to see the players on the field (without watching one of the many video boards either on the field or just outside the stadium), your going to have to get there probably as the gates open and have someone wait at your spot. Google party deck cowboys stadium for images of how terribly those sight lines actually are (I'm having trouble embedding).
If you just want to go for the atmosphere and experience feel free. Just wanted to warn people what they were getting themselves into.

There's a Blue Mesa in Dallas too near Northpark Mall on 75 and Northwest Highway (Loop 12). They have a free quesadilla bar during happy hour.

you could always just go to Six Flags... but yeah the bar scene is bigger in either Ft Worth or Uptown Dallas

graduate with an engineering degree from Michigan with honors basically guarrentees you have extra $$ to use on the weekends. I hit the $3K after like 5 weeks.
|3 years 5 weeks ago||look at the Chase Sapphire||
look at the Chase Sapphire Preferred. If you are a new chase customer and spend $3K in the first three months, you get 40K points which is like $400 cash back. Use the rewards for something and you can cancel in the first year before you pay any fees. It also feels sweet (its made of metal) and looks black at night at the bars.
|3 years 11 weeks ago||Coaches??????||
What about Coaches? They don't exactly fit in the rules defined above. I think coaches like Red, Bo, and Lloyd deserve to be in this.

Does the last panel change for where you are too? I saw a tornado in the last panel but I'm guessing it has to do with snow for Michigan.

Well I'm over in Dallas so I do not know what the drinking situation is over in Arlington but I would recommend staying in Dallas. Theres more things to do/more restaurants etc.
There's a big bar area called uptown in Dallas that is just barely north of downtown (figures right?) that is located on McKinney Ave. There's lots of bars and the crowd is some SMU students/ and lots of young professionals in their 20's.
As for other things to do, I'm not too sure. I spent a good chunk of last labor day weekend at my apartment pool and grilling. There happens to be a Six Flags like half a mile from Cowboy Stadium if they want to come with to Arlington.
|3 years 25 weeks ago||well what are you trying to||
well what are you trying to do before/after the game? That kinda decides where you want to stay.

If you are an alumni, you should of gotten the email for alumni in Texas giving us a presale last week. They only would of forced you to buy tailgate tickets for an extra $50 on top of ticket prices.

So i woke up this morning planning on getting on my computer at like 820 and getting ready to buy a ND pack. Then in the shower I realized that I lived in the central time zone now and that tickets were already on sale. Naturally, i practically jumped out of the shower and ran over to my computer.
Still managed to get
ND row 40
EMU row 11
SDSU row 83
MINN row 69
But thats assuming I actually sit in these seats before going to the student section.

No offense to anyone but this may be the worst story posted so far.
This was my junior year and I was heading over to India to catch up with my family (who had gone a few days earlier) and spend christmas break over there. Anyway since its the middle of December, I had an early morning flight out of Detriot to Newark (I picked the early morning flight because nearly every single flight i've taken from Detroit to Newark has been delayed between 30 minutes and 3 hours or just straight up canceled). Naturally to my luck, this is the first time ever that I've gotten out of Detroit ON TIME. So I end up in Newark at like 1 in the afternoon and my flight to India is at 730. I leave the airport and hang out with some friends before getting back to the airport at like 5.
The flight to India ended up getting delayed one hour at the gate and then another hour on the tarmac due to technical difficulties and the plan doesn't actually get off the ground until close to 11pm. Anyway the flight seems fine and dinner is served. Since the flight was getting into India late at night and well i was going to party in Mumbai, i ended up taking some nyquil to force myself to sleep.
A few hours later, I wake up to this PA annoucement basically stating that the plane has technical difficulties and we cannot finish the remaining 9 hour trip to Mumbai. They checked into landing at various airports in Europe but that isn't a possibility. They decided to fly 5!! hours back to Newark where we could get a new plane and try again. Anyway I make it back to Newark at 8am and they say the next flight for us would be at 11am. That plane didn't leave until 4pm and then i proceded to spend another 15 hours on a plane.
Due to this rediculus set back, I missed my connection in India. I guess the only upside was I was able to celebrate a countdown to Christmas on a rooftop bar in Mumbai.
