Having been to a game using GA, it would mean that the students would likely get a general ticket with no seating assignment and then they would show up to a special ticketing window/area to get their seating assignment on gameday.
My brother went to MSU while I was at UM, and they used to have two student sections. The general section and the "Corner Blitz." Corner Blitz students had generic tickets for which they paid more, and it entitled them to a seat lower in the bowl portion of the student section that went about halfway up the student section. They also had special shirts and would get small items at games to encourage more cheering (e.g. towels or other items). They abandoned the Corner Blitz by the 2007 season, but it was in place in 2005 when I went to the game in EL.

All four #2 seeds have made the Sweet Sixteen exactly once over the past 15 years. You might want to rethink this.

We lost because we don't have this:

THJ with the NBA skillz!!! #1 #1 #1
|16 weeks 5 days ago||If you can wait||
If you can wait until the end of the season, they will drop to $14.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||It's nice to have||
It's nice to have length on that 1-3-1 zone!
|16 weeks 5 days ago||And there's the||
And there's the makeup call.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Because Richardson was||
Because Richardson was out of control, it's a foul...
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Trey doing his best||
Trey doing his best Craft impression. Love it!
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Also, it's hard to be clean||
Also, it's hard to be clean when there are two different standards for what a foul is depending on the half.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||With that call,||
With that call on GRIII, the refs have lost my respect.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Guess BTN didn't get the memo||
Guess BTN didn't get the memo. I thought the 1993 Final Four never happened.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||I agree.||
I agree. The first possession that they introduced it, the Illini threw the ball away because of the change in pressure.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Are you sure||
Are you sure that we're being out rebounded? The %'s are probably very close. In terms of sheer numbers, we have more boards.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||I'll take the lead||
I'll take the lead, but I've been yelling "NOOOOO, TTTTRRREEEEEYYYYY!" a bit too much with some of that shot selection.

|16 weeks 5 days ago||Freshmen are carrying us right now||
Freshmen are carrying us right now. We just need to finish this half out, and then I look forward to Beilein halftime adjustments and Trey/Tim getting back into this game (although they both are Ding up pretty well).
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Does Griffey always||
Does Griffey always have to play well against us?
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Not to mention||
Not to mention they only happen to him at a 40%. He still hits a respectable 60% of his shots, even if he does miss some good opportunities.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Weak hand check call.||
Weak hand check call. You'd be laughed off most courts for calling that.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Nice find||
Nice find by Robinson! Canadian Assassin!
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Illinois has done a good job||
Illinois has done a good job keeping UM out on the perimeter offensively, but I think our guys will start to see the openings. Burke's pass to McGary is a nice start.
|17 weeks 1 hour ago||I almost threw my laptop||
I almost threw my laptop because of that trick and then I saw the color of the that jersey. GO BLUE!!! Good luck Derrick!
|21 weeks 3 days ago||I was at that Red Sox||
I was at that Red Sox game against the Orioles and stayed the whole time. Chris Davis could actually be a decent reliever. He hit 92/93 mph on the gun on his fastballs and had a legitimate changeup to strike people out with.
|25 weeks 14 min ago||Yeah, he doesn't get||
Yeah, he doesn't get that less can be more. The last time I've beeen this annoyed with an announcer is when Dave O'Brien did the World Cup.
|25 weeks 20 min ago||Is it just me||
Is it just me or is Bruce Pearl making anyone else watch this on mute?
|33 weeks 6 days ago||It's not just the stat line||
It's not just the stat line that's impressive. Did you see the trajectory on Smith's passes, especially the deep balls? It was a beautiful display. Holgo may be responsible for a great offense, but a scheme is not responsible for 45-51.
|51 weeks 5 days ago||Thanks for a relevant and informative post||
Thanks for a relevant and informative post during the offseason. I like some of the OT stuff that's on the boards, but this blog is about Michigan sports and seeing something like this - given some of the stuff on the board - is refreshing.
Also, great seasons from all these Wolverines! Go Blue!

Just google Sepp Blatter corruption. I'm specifically thinking of things related to the last FIFA presidential election and the awarding of the 2018 World Cup to Qatar. If you want to learn more about the corruption inside FIFA, you also need to look at the regional organizations, primarily CONCACAF and Jack Warner. Bottom line: it's a cesspool.

Would you dissuade a kid in California from rooting for the Wolverines simply because he saw them on tv and loved the helmets and the good team on the field? And would you blame him further if he then looked up this magical team on the internets and was taken in by their history? A lot of people root for United, City, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Chelsea for these same reasons (as well as the fact that other teams are very hard to follow from the US). I love United and I'm not ashamed to say it.
