Student tickets when I graduated in 2009 were ~$20-25 over my four years. They are now $40.
Other points anti-brandon:
Michigan wearing 7+ uniforms in one 13 game season
Brandon's own salary - i believe it's 3X Bill Martin's?
Attendance streak/waitlist which you mentioned
Size of the AD (doubled to 240 or close) and thsoe who were not brought in under Brandon (<40, including Fred Jackson, Red, etc) - this whole mess of an AD is his own doing.
PSL & regular ticket prices - almost doubled
Crisler student ticket mess

Why should someone stay in school? If anything it helps athletes a ton, and it helps universities. This is a protection against injury and bad decisions. Lots of people try jobs in college, some even drop out to do it.

I doubt I qualify though. I've never marketed crappy pizza. I'm an engineer who learned to problem solve while at Michigan.

So in (can't vote though).
Also, I'm probably going to a few more games this year. For those of you who feel bad about attending, bring a sign - here for the players only - Brandon & Hoke should go or something similar.

concussions have levels. if your friends saw him stumble over into Braden they should know that he should not have risked further hits to the head.

Awww, it's because it was depressing.
We'll be watching Saturday... I'd just like to see some fire from the team too.

How many can Coke hand out for $3?
|1 week 2 days ago||Scorched earth on the AD||
I love the public call-out on how former players are now expected to pay their way into the stadium. No loyalty from this AD towards anything but the dollar.

At least Mean Joe Green will be at the game?

If you take the letter "A" to equal the numberical Value of 1, b =2, etc. and add up the letters in the above words you get a total of 380. Know another set of words with the same value?

I make this point about awareness above - but women know to get mammograms. How many men know the numbers/risks/etc and actually get prostate exams/colonoscopies?
Baseball has done awareness work on fathers day. As we've said earlier - follow the money. Sex sells, and that means women's breasts > men's butts.
|1 week 6 days ago||Yup||
Unfortunately there's a lot of that in a lot of "charity" work. It's always good to be able to look at fine print and see results before donating to any cause.
IIRC the actual pink apparel that the players wore (cleats, wristbands, etc) was auctioned off and all of that money went to the charities - but still.

Yeah, the ultimate goal is a great one. except:
Report: Less than 10 percent of NFL pink merchandise sales go toward cancer research
|1 week 6 days ago||All show and no Go||
The NFL's (and many other's) pink "breast cancer awareness" campaigns are ridiculous in my mind. Cancer is horrible, I've got survivors in my family, and we should do all we can to cure it... but does any woman with the ability to watch the NFL and means to purchase any pink apparel NOT know to get a mammogram? A ridiculously small amount of money from each pink towel/shirt/whatever sold goes towards charity funding in the NFL's model. It's a huge corporate "Look at how much good we're doing" without doing much of anything.
Case in point - Brandon Marshall's neon cleats getting a fine despite him wearing them to promote mental health awareness. The NFL don't care about anything but a dollar.
|1 week 6 days ago||I felt OK too||
Michigan has shown progress, but continues to make mistakes. They're going to have trouble if they make mistakes like this against better competition. That said... there still might not be a really good team on the schedule till November. Baby steps... As BiSB noted - this was not Akron.

IN MY DAY WE DIDN'T NEED NO DAMN AIR SHOWS - THE AIR SHOW WAS ON THE FIELD! IT WAS WANGLER TO CARTER - YOU DIDNT NEED NO DAMN RA/18/ATTACK DOO HICKEYS FLYING ABOVE THE FIELD.
THIS SEEMS LIKE AN OBVIOUS MARKETING GIMMICK TO GET BUTTS IN THE SEATS - AND I DON'T MEAN JAKE. TOUGH IT OUT SON, YOUR KNEE'S GOT OTHER LIGAMENTS. NEXT THING YOU KNOW WE'LL HAVE THE PLANES PARKED NEXT TO THE STADIUM AND YOU CAN GET YOUR PICTURE TAKEN WITH THE PLANE AND A NOODLE FOR A DOLLAR
It's too loud near my house that I bought without noticing the 100K seat stadium!

By my count that'll make 6+ NBA Wolverines next year:
Nik, Trey, Tim, Mitch, Glenn, Jamal Crawford, plus Darius Morris may stick this year and Epke Udoh once played here...
Awesome to think that all 5 starters from the Final 4 team are now in the NBA
