"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."

Yeah...2-3am on the west side of AA resulted in 1 meteor....I hated my wife for finding the story on her own and myself for believing it might be fun.

I will be relocating to McLean in the next month so I will be looking for places to hang on Saturdays as well.

Good luck getting osu fans to understand witty banter.

Sorry, you are correct. 26 is the farthest section over and the band sits at the bottom of 27/28.

Put up storm shutters around the heart of your fandom. This one's gonna be rough!
|2 years 3 days ago||Fair enough. It is another||
Fair enough. It is another perspective. My only contention is plays occuring on the other end of the field were difficult for me to judge the yardage gained. I also had seats in the endzone, but that was before the MEGA screens went in, so that might alleviate some of my issue.
|2 years 3 days ago||Section 26 fills up fastest||
Section 26 fills up fastest becuase the band takes up the first 30 rows or so.
Anymore the bottom of sections 28-32 fill up first as those are generally the section to get face time on TV and where the players will rush to at the end of the game.
I sit in section 25 because I believe that has the best sight lines as you are closer to mid-field. I'll be in the stands only because I cannot get a decent amount for my tickets.
|2 years 1 week ago||I love the neapolitan style||
I love the neapolitan style pizzas. For that, Mani's takes it in taste over the cheaper options in the area.
They weren't focused on cost, it was all about how good the food actually is. I eat at Mani's at least once a month for the pizza only. I am always full eating less than a pizza. It is the size of a medium pizza from anywhere else. If you want any type of pizza other than neapolitan style, don't eat at Mani's.
Neo Papalis is also along the same lines, but with a cheaper price point and almost no wait. They aren't cheap either if you start adding toppings on above their standard template. 3 toppings at NP will result in a pizza as costly as Mani's...
Everyone's tastes are different. Your mileage may vary.

I didn't see a RB try to juke air in the back field once last game. I am really hoping that the coaches are just doing the typical coach-speak about the RB situation being a 3 person race with Fitz in it. I haven't seen anything from Fitz all season that really stands out as being a go-to RB. The Green run around the edge and trucking that DB was the most exciting run from a RB all year. How sad is that?
|2 years 1 week ago||You will not have to go 2-3||
You will not have to go 2-3 hours before kick off to get a good seat. I strolled in 30 minutes before kick off for Nebraska and was in row 8.
Students are trying like hell to sell their tickets on CL. There are a ton of tickets flooding the market right now. Regardless of the game this week, the earliest you would need to arrive to get within the bottom 10 rows would be 1 hour before, at best.
ND was the only game that I had to line up 3 hours early for and was still in row 15.
|2 years 1 week ago||This. I also booed for the||
I also booed for the first time against Nebraska. After seeing the playing calling in OT at Penn State, then MSU and Nebraska...I booed. I turned up to the box which has the block M where Borges sits and booed until I had some sort of mild statisfaction which should have been received from a good play.
|2 years 2 weeks ago||Had Kerridge actually hit||
Had Kerridge actually hit that block we wouldn't be talking about this, certainly. The play looks like it is meant to go outside of the tackle and still could have seen a decent gain had Gardner not tripped trying to read the crashing corner. Instead he tripped and fell towards the line instead of being able to run to the edge where most of the D-line and LB's were sealed.
On the other hand, the point about never optioning someone is completely valid here. The scheme doesn't make sense, but could have avoided a crappy ending with better execution. [/Hoke speak]
|2 years 4 weeks ago||For the record||
F108 is clearly the best spork.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Yeah, I don't know where you||
Yeah, I don't know where you are seeing those ticket prices, but I just went on to mgoblue and could get tickets below the red line for $25....$35 for tickets behind the benches at the faceoff circle and $43 for mid ice.....
|2 years 7 weeks ago||You are correct. That is the||
You are correct. That is the only consistent song I can recall repeatedly played for 3rd down attempts. They will mix in seven nation army into a few third downs.
The fans tend to be louder when seven nation army is played so that may come during 3rd down plays which might be foreseen to be big in terms of timing in the game.
|2 years 7 weeks ago||Huh? As of yesterday you||
Huh? As of yesterday you could get tickets for $25 for BC plus a free ticket for the NDT..

I'm bias because it has been my sports jersey number when I play any sport since I was a kid.

No ND hires of Weiss or Willingham? Come on...Those two were pretty terrible in their own regard.

Well, you can always look at the bright side. You're still a pessimist.

Can we get a gif of Jeremy Jackson pulling his best Chesson impression from the Gardner TD run? It looks he got a turkey!

'Tis all entertainment, sports entertainment.
I would love it if Holtz was legitimately flipping out though. Just not a fan of his...
|2 years 10 weeks ago||As we must look at the||
As we must look at the positives in life, let is be noted that the student section did not attempt to start the wave this week...
|2 years 10 weeks ago||I too hope this. I think it||
I too hope this. I think it looks like a big slap in the face to have the 8:00pm time slow against a team which you should beat soundly. I think every "expert" will have UofM on upset alert after last week and ABS/ESPN is trying to rack in the viewer numbers due to it.
With how UofM should play and the quality of oppponent this game should be a 3:30 start on ESPN2 or BTN....
|2 years 10 weeks ago||This..So much This. The||
This..So much This.
The tickets that weren't sold and seats that were obviously empty were the single game tickets which are no above the student section. Those seats were empty all game.
You either need to have the entire stadium filled with season ticket holders or a schedule without any cupcakes to ensure the insatiable appetite for UofM football never outlives the supply of tickets. This week, that appetite resembled an aenorexic chick.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||All you people complaining||
All you people complaining about the student section need to look at the now public section above the students. It was empty the entire game not just before kick off. Brandon couldn't even sell all of the tickets available because no one wanted to pay to watch that team. Dynamic ticket pricing needs to go both ways.
|2 years 10 weeks ago||I never like it||
It looks too much like sparty's logo for my taste.
