|1 week 6 days ago||I spent 4 hours today||
I spent 4 hours today surrounded by and talking to former players.
First, I think it's inaccurate to lump the former players together. There are almost 2000 former players. They don't think and act as one. Just like fans on this board they all have their own opinions.
However, almost 200 of them showed up today to support the team and the currrent players.
All the players I spoke to were very supportive of the players and wanted nothing but the best for them.
I get that this is 'adverse selection.' I'm talking to the ones that showed support by showing up.
I can assure you that it hurts and pains the ones I talked to as much as the fans, if not even more.

I live in Maryland and I know it's B1G country, because when I get off the plane at BWI, there is a big sign that says.... "Welcome to B1G Country". Therefore it is.

One of my favorite hype videos... Featuring ND and M. Very well made.

The real question is why are 17% picking State? I would have guessed it would have been a lot lower.

Yes. I had some tickets on SH and they sent me info on LMS. They sold last night. But I knew where to ship the tickets for LMS.

Stub Hub does offer LMS (Last Minute Service) for the Notre Dame game. You just have to pick the tickets up at some place near the stadium.

She might be young enough that it works.. Meaning she will fall asleep or somehting.. But my experience is that 5 is about the youngest, and even then you better bring an iphone for them.
At age 6 you can start teaching them the game etc.
As a side note, the really frustrating thing for my 6 year old was that when she watches on tv, she knows what to watch since the camera follows the ball, but when she was at the game, she had a hard time figuring out where to look.
This is just my experience with 2 kids.

I know for a fact that the coaches think much higher of Miller than his performance last year would dictate.

I agree that Brandon's axing of the free tickets for the players is a real negative in the players mind.
However, the AD (whether it be Brandon or Hoke) has done a LOT for the former players that was never done before:
As much as I don't like a lot of stuff the AD has done, there has been some good things, especially for the former players.

I love hype videos. And , I know how hard it is to make them and it would be my honor to donate 2 tickets to a winner of a contest.
I would donate two section 2 row 30 something tickets (40 yard line) for any game except PSU and Maryland. Or, 2 tickets to MSU (away) in the Michigan seats.

I love your work.. And I really don't use wallpapers. Would love an appropriately sized 'wall paper' for a facebook picture...

Wifi on southwest sucks. Don't expect to be able to watch it if you have wifi. And, I don't think they even allow you to watch streaming video.
|32 weeks 23 hours ago||Maybe, remember these are||
Maybe, remember these are endzone tickets..so, Notre Dame will probably garner about $300. But Ohio can depend greatly on the records of the teams. I've seen Ohio sell for less than $150 if one or both of the teams are bad.
I have no idea what Rutgers will fetch, but it is Yom Kippur, and that's gotta hurt the sales, especially in the northeast.

I'm sure you have a 'director of development' person assigned to you. Just give them a call. The two different ones that have been asssigned to me over the years have been great and working through those types of problems.
And, yes, getting high priority parking (blue or champions) is a bitch. I don't know how many points you need, but it's over 700 and maybe over 800.
|32 weeks 23 hours ago||Nope. 20.||

The road game prices have gone up astronomically!
Ohio is charging $150 per ticket!
Notre Dame is $110.
Rutgers is $100, WTF? $100? For Rutgers?
These have gone up dramatically since the last road game in Ohio and ND.

I have no inside info.. But I know that with Borge's young child(ren), I'm wondering if he had a deal with Hoke that kept him off the recruting road. It's the only thing I can think of that makes any sense.

My kids are 5 and 8. We have season tickets, but I only take them to two games a year each. I would say 5 is the earliest. Every year it gets better.

Only 1 scoreboard which was beyond annoying since i was bascially sitting in front of it.. I could never tell the down and distance without looking at the yard markers.
Marketing everywhere... subway this, western bank that.. it was bad. I really hope we never do that crap.
