|2 weeks 3 days ago||Arriving early Friday||
My sister lives in Columbus, and I am flying in Friday morning to get a lay of the land (I hear there's some excellent food). I think she's taking me to an OSU tailgate that is supposedly pretty tame. If not, I intend on simply going to and from the stadium without stopping anywhere.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||First Timer||
This year will be my first time going to Columbus for The Game. Admittedly, reading the several threads over the last couple weeks as well as Brian's story have certainly given me some pause. I intend to be as respectful as humanly possible, both because it's the right thing to do and because I value my own safety.
My sister lives in Columbus, but I am going to The Game alone. If anyone has any tips (other than "don't go"), they are all greatly appreciated, no matter how blatantly obvious some may be.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||2C||
I cannot say that 2C is the official Michigan section. In fact I'm pretty sure it's anything but, and right next to one of the (I think there are two?) student sections. But I am sitting in Section 2C, and hope that many more fans of the good guys will join me.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I bought my ticket to||
I bought my ticket to Columbus for $281 and within hours the lowest single game ticket was over $300. I happened to buy around halftime of the Nebraska game when the end result was clear. I imagine prices will go below that slightly the week of The Game but I feel very happy in my decision.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||First Time as Well||
It is my first time as well. My sister lives in Columbus and probably won't live there much longer so this may be my only chance for free lodging. I couldn't resist. I'm nervous but excited. I will continue to campaign for as many Michigan fans as possible to buy tickets in section 2C as that's where my ticket is.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I will also be in Columbus||
I will also be in Columbus that weekend. I have no idea where the Michigan allotment for tickets is, but I will be sitting in section 2C row 8. Seats are high up in the endzone. Would be happy to have as many Michigan fans nearby as possible.

I'm not sure there's a better fit than Tom Crean and U2, also props to the Seton Hall coach for saying Beastie Boys.

I would pay for an h.w.o. shirt. I wouldn't even hesitate.

Ahh, I see. I love the Bears, but Michigan matters more. So, to answer your question, a resounding yes.

Sorry, this is a sore subject for me. It was so so so bad when he was Bears DC
Following one of the worst defensive seasons in Bears' history in 2013, Tucker received criticism from the media. As a result, team fired two of Tucker's assistant coaches, linebackers coach Tim Tibesar and defensive line coach Mike Phair. The Bears replaced them with Paul Pasqualoni as defensive line coach andReggie Herring as linebackers coach.
On January 20, 2015, following another record-setting low defensive season for the Bears, Tucker was replaced by former San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio under new head coach John Fox.
|1 year 1 week ago||What he has done with a||
What he has done with a roster brutally devoid of a lot of talent is really really impressive. So no, Fangio would not bother me at all. I would, however, be more concerned about his system fitting with the current roster.

I'm a Bears fan, and this name scares the bejeezus out of me. Please no. Please please please no.

Defer. It's always defer.
|1 year 29 weeks ago||Also going through this||
I have been going through this process as well, with my wedding coming up in August (before football season obviously). It's really not as stressful/bad/whatever as you might think, but I do have one piece of advice: get your guest list in order ASAP. It's going to change several times, particularly with your parents and future in-laws' lists. Parents can be an incredible pain during this process.
The guest list has by far been the most stressful part. We were hoping to have a moderate-to-small wedding, and it blew up faster than I could have ever imagined. Get that in order. Everything else (band/DJ, flowers, venue, etc.) really isn't all that bad.
I could reiterate and say DON'T SPEND MONEY, but that's obvious, and a little harder than I ended up realizing.
Good luck and congrats!

I always mention this because I'm very proud of my pup. I named my dog Woodley. It's less common, and celebrates one of my favorite seasons of football.

I've got a 3 year old Chinese Shar Pei named Woodley. I figured it'd be a little different from your classics "Bo" or "Charles" or "Brady" (for Tom, not Hoke).

Not only was he one hell of a ballplayer, but I had the pleasure of meeting him about 13 years ago, I believe his final season. I was a teenager traveling with my grandparents to see a bunch of ballparks, and the Padres were in San Francisco (which, by the way, is a beautiful place to see a game). He was signing autographs, doing the rounds with the fans, and he took like 5-7 minutes just to talk to me about how much he loved the game and how he'd miss it. Really seemed like a genuinely nice guy.
Cool story bro, I know. RIP Tony and condolences to your family.

As a Bulls fan, I've been through the whole "will he or won't he play if we go deep in the playoffs" with Derrick Rose. Granted, that was an acl tear and Mitch's issue is a back, but this whole idea only leads to disappointment.

My dog's name is Woodley. She's built like a linebacker, but thankfully doesn't inspire the fear that LaMarr did

As a proud member of the Chicago alumni fan base, I can confidently say we would show up in Milwaukee in droves. Chicago-based fans tend to travel well

It's football day in the office to celebrate the opening week of the NFL season, so everyone is representing their pro teams. Naturally I'm rocking my Chad Henne circa 2006 jersey. GO BLUE
