This year I have attended my first two games as a neutral, [email protected], and the MAC Championship the other day (though I wasn't quite a true neutral for the MAC game #RTB). In general, I highly recommend attending football games as a neutral. Lots of fun, low stress. I just figure I might as well go to as many football games in my life as I can. Already looking at the 2017 bye week to see what game I might be able to go to then (If WMU's MAC opener is at home I'll probably go to that).

I don't know why "It'd be nice if small sports weren't scheduled at the same time as football games, and it'd be nice if the two biggest winter sports didn't play home games at the same time" is being treated like a crazy opinion. People would rather trash WD than address that these things are unideal. Lots of people have hockey and basketball tickets, many of those people are students, scheduling games at the same time is unfair for those people. I am sure there are reasonable factors that lead to things being at the same time, and I am also sure if they really decided to make scheduling harmony across sports a priority, it could lead to more Michigan fans going to more Michigan sporting events.

Going to be there. Very interested in how the attendance is, especially among the students. I'll consider this something of a bellwether game to see how early I have to show up to the lesser B1G games to actually get a spot in the Maize Rage. Think I'm gonna show up around 6 and hope I get a wristband. Last year with a few key exceptions showing up an hour early would have been fine. Not sure if people have noticed yet that this year we're sort of good.

Section 8C, Row 40. M Student Section. I am very, very excited. If anyone has a tailgate I can crash that'd be sweet.

Obviously if you're playing a game like this you don't want to lose, but the fact is these games are pretty low-stakes. This should happen a lot more often, big schools playing mid-major in-state teams. I'd love it if Michigan played one of Eastern, Western, Central, Oakland or Detroit at their places every year. Would be fun to visit all those different stadiums, and see the team in a different environment while getting the guys a little early-season road expereince. Most years playing those teams would be better for our RPI than some of the crap early-season scheduling we've had.

I asked the UM Club of Central Ohio, no official tailgate. I wish I had the resources to set something up but would be happy to contribute some beer if someone was planning on having a larger UM-friendly tailgate.

FYI: Central @ Eastern is the Tuesday before Thanksgiving if you're in Ann Arbor and would like to attend a fairly major directional game without missing any important football. $10. May be for bowl eligibility for Central.

The Solid Verbal is incredible. Recently they mentioned that they started the podcast by thinking about the type of college football podcast they would want to listen to, and that's exactly it. Smart but not overly technical, funny but not joke-focused.
I also am a fan of MLive's Wolverine Beat, but I think a lot of people around here are not as big of fans. I think that because they are both outsiders to Michigan fandom they offer a perspective we don't often hear. This is obviously a unique situation, but this summer when I went full weeks without internet access, being able to download TWB to catch up on news was really useful.

No snark question: Can you explain why you believe Weiser is more qualified than Illitch? Illitch is a sitting regent, meaning she does have some experience in the position, and it seems to me that their business experience is equally irrelavent to being a regent. I could be wrong, and would like to hear a counterpoint before I vote. Thanks!

Took a weirdly long time to get the HAIL app set up properly so I can go get mine but I'm walking to the MDen to pick it up right now. As someone who's getting one for free (well, included with season tickets) I'm pretty happy with it, but I would not buy it.

Hey, if this is a serious offer I'm at [email protected]. I would be very open to this, and would be happy to throw some cash your way as well.

I use Bovada. I like it enough. I really like the live betting feature, but can't speak to the quality of other sites.

I'll be there. Got two M student tickets, though I'm actually taking my Grandpa. Very, very excited.

Current School of Information student here. I worked on this project! It was pretty cool! I mostly just got to look through the Dailys and make sure nothing was out of the ordinary, then I did some basic quality control on the completed scans. Really fun for me, got to go into work and read about old Michigan athletics. They're working on getting the rest online, promise.

I'm a Red Bulls fan so I was pretty mad when Kljestan wasn't called in initially. Glad he's proven the MLS zealots right.
What's weird to me is how frequently Klinny subs on late call-ups. If you think they might play, why not just call them the first time around?

Last year I tried this for the first time and found that the delay on 1050AM was almost non-existant. When the ref turned on his field mic, I found it lined up pretty well.

I'll buy a Jumpman jersey pretty much as soon as I can, I'll get the football and basketball student shirts with my tickets. Other than that its not like I had that much Adidas gear in the first place, I will probably continue mostly buying the MDen's Champion and unbranded stuff.

Totoro is okay. I'm partial to the sushi place next to the hardware store, which I don't know the real name of. It's just saved in my phone as "sushi place."

I was actually going to make a thread out of something similar I noticed, which might mean absolutely nothing:
The jersey presented to Jeff Gordon today had serifs. Our nameplates do not. I also think its possible that the M is smaller than the one's on last years jerseys:
It could be a replica jersey thing, though I still think it's weird that they used serifs. I also looked pretty hard for a picture of the front of that jersey and could not find one. Hmmmm.

If I could walk in for $10 or under, I probably would. I wouldn't clear my schedule for it, but I'll always take an excuse to go to the Big House. Granted I live in Ann Arbor which makes it easier to attend stuff like this, but why not?

No idea where I'm sitting as a friend of a friend is the one actually holding my tickets, but I'll be there. Half my flight today was flying in for the game.
