"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."

I have the large men's/unisex shirt and it fits like a typical large. No shrinking issues. The only feedback I've gotten is that the women's shirts do shrink a bit, so for those you may want to order a size up unless you're ok with a tight fitting shirt.

I've wondered for a while about the possibility of option C: Harbaugh may have just been saying that to boost Jake's confidence and avoid a QB controversy with the fans/media.

Four of us will be at the Downtown Westin. I guess we'll tailgate around Dinkytown?

There shouldn't be much effort to go through the MGoBlog referral link. I just bookmark it so whenever I go to Amazon it uses that link.

I'll be in Section 210 (Visitor side, 40 yard line) row 30 with three friends. None of us have been to Minneapolis before, so will be checking this thread for activity ideas.

Vivid Seats. They seemed to have some tickets that I didn't see on tiqiq (sec 210 row 2), and I was ready to pay $149 for them until I saw the crazy fees on the final "confirm purchase" screen.

Finally replaced the super cool Denard heisman pose drawing I've had as my iphone 6 lock screen since I bought it a year ago. Thanks!
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I just spent about 2 hours||
I just spent about 2 hours scouring various sites, and almost pulled the trigger on seats in section 210 row 2 for $149 until the last page of the checkout informed me of $40 in service fees per ticket. Ended up going with section 210 (between the 40 and the 50, Michigan side) row 30. It's about half the size of Michigan stadium so I figured that can't be too bad, and I'd rather be up high in the middle than low in the endzone or corner.
Tiqiq directed me to Seat Smart, which only has a $10 service fee for the entire order. I couldn't figure out how to use the tiqiq promo code, but I think I got a pretty good deal (similar tickets were going for upwards of $200).
Good luck with your search! Hopefully someone will start a "fun things to do in Minneapolis" thread as the game approaches, as my friends and I have never been there.
BTW, I'm also a Rob F.

Thanks! I was gonna use Tiqiq with th mgoradio 10% off special, but will definitely take a look on vivid seats before I make my purchase.

That's what I was thinking. I'm sure I can find a way to be ok with that type of first world problem!

I couldn't help but read that as "wanna ban." Yes, I'd say you're approaching ban territory.

Clearly a smart and super cool guy. Someone just needs to tell him to watch for saying "you know" during interviews. A drink every time he says that in the 3 minute clip would be enough to kill a horse.

I'm not from michigan so that rivalry never affected me as much as it affects in-staters. I certainly dislike them, but I have a lot more hatred for OSU and notre dame. It'll make beating them next week that much sweeter!

Yep, that's what I've been doing. Relatively minor annoyance, but would be great if that bug got fixed. I'm not sure if it happens with all browsers, but it's a consistent issue with Chrome.

I spent 8 years working at university counseling centers as a psychologist (at 4 different schools), and at each one we were understaffed, underfunded, and overworked. We also tried to use the "embedded consultant" model as much as we could. Glad ot see U of M adding resources to this program. At least I hope that's what they're doing, rather than just spreading limited resources thinner...

I don't really consider it a dig. Frankly, I think it's cute and a fun aspect of the best rivalry in sports.

While we're at it, I'm sick of 20+ nonsensical, non-funny, immature attempts at humor that seem to pop up in every other thread.

Yes, of course I can skip it. I revere this blog and what it stands for, spend about an hour a day on it, and almost consider it a part of my identity. I love that it is consistently intelligent and witty, and that's why I can't figure out why people go apeshit for this cheap bit. I found it cute the first year, but am genuinely perplexed by the fact that it has become more and more popular despite being more and more trite.

Yep, I got that! Thanks for being in the relatively silent minority with me (though I'd bet dollars to donuts that Brian/Seth/Ace et al. find this schtick silly and trite at this point as well).

Exactly, that's my point. I get that it's a running joke...I just don't find it remotely funny, and not even close to witty or smart (like most things on this blog).
